Three Wynn spas in one city? Each Ma­cau sanc­tu­ary de­liv­ers its own dis­tinct de­sign, while shar­ing the same su­perla­tive Wynn ser­vice.

WHEN IT DE­BUTED IN 2016, the Spa at Wynn Palace joined the award-win­ning Spa at En­core and the Spa at Wynn to form a trin­ity of tran­quil­ity in Ma­cau and Co­tai. The decor, treat­ments and at­mos­phere vary from spa to spa, but what ties the three to­gether is the ex­cel­lent ser­vice and per­son­al­ized treat­ments. “No mat­ter which Wynn spa you visit, you will find con­sis­tency in our ser­vices,” ex­plains Spa Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of Op­er­a­tions Jen­nifer Simms, who over­sees all three spas. “You can tell the ther­a­pists have been trained by our Wynn spa train­ers, based on de­tails like the move­ments of their hands and their seam­less tech­niques.” Whether you pre­fer an ul­tra-ex­clu­sive VIP suite or a more ca­sual girls’ day out, Wynn’s spas in Ma­cau de­liver com­ple­men­tary yet dis­tinct well­ness jour­neys. Here’s what you can ex­pect at each at­mo­spheric ad­dress.

SPA AT WYNN PALACE Best for... A bit of ev­ery­thing

Sport­ing gold and Cham­pagne hues, the en­trance of the spa chan­nels the grandeur of an im­pe­rial Chi­nese palace. Down the grand prom­e­nade, two sym­met­ri­cal rows of stone fu dogs stand at at­ten­tion, while a re­gal pea­cock sculp­ture an­chors the room. These sym­bolic Chi­nese el­e­ments com­mu­ni­cate dig­nity and beauty—qual­i­ties that ev­ery Wynn spa shares. The ur­ban sanc­tu­ary and largest spa in Ma­cau plays host to a light-filled salon, gym, pool, re­tail shop and 22 spa treat­ment rooms. Mean­while, within the ladies’ re­lax­ation area, guests can un­wind with friends or en­joy the heat and wa­ter fa­cil­i­ties on their own. For added ver­sa­til­ity, the Spa at Wynn Palace also of­fers eight VIP suites—each com­plete with a daybed, mini bar, Jacuzzi, shower room and plush mas­sage bed. “We found at the Spa at Wynn Ma­cau, and the Spa at En­core, that many of our guests love to en­joy the wet fa­cil­i­ties with friends, while oth­ers pre­fer the pri­vacy of hav­ing their own in­di­vid­ual suites—and some like both,” ex­plains Simms. “The guest jour­ney at Spa at Wynn Palace in­cludes all op­tions, so each per­son may cus­tom­ize their time with us.” The sig­na­ture treat­ment: Em­peror and Em­press. You’ll wade into the three-hour-long Em­peror and Em­press cou­ples’ treat­ment with a jas­mine-in­fused bath, fol­lowed by an energy stone mas­sage for him, an aro­matic chakra-bal­anc­ing rub-down for her and hy­drat­ing fa­cials. Sig­na­ture tea and snacks: Green Haven tea, a blend of green tea and chamomile (made es­pe­cially for the Spa at Wynn Palace); iced hibis­cus zest tea, in­tended to be con­sumed af­ter heat ex­pe­ri­ences; rose blos­som for post-treat­ment; plus fresh fruit, dried mango, ginger, nuts and cook­ies. †

SPA AT EN­CORE Best for... Time alone

Hid­den away on the first floor of En­core, the all-suite Spa at En­core feels like a dra­matic de­par­ture from the ho­tel’s bold color pal­ette. Awash in soft neu­tral tones, a dis­creet re­cep­tion area wel­comes guests with touch­able tex­tures, such as naval-in­spired knot­ted walls, stone ac­cents and ra­di­ant cit­rine crys­tals. Be­fore each treat­ment, guests are in­vited to re­lax in their pri­vate sanc­tu­ary, where a dry sauna, mar­ble hy­drother­apy aroma bath and rich wood and leather ac­cents await. “The Spa at En­core is de­voted to pri­vate suites, so you will go straight to your room in­stead of re­lax­ing in com­mon fa­cil­i­ties,” says Simms. “This at­tracts peo­ple who pre­fer pri­vacy or just want to get away from ev­ery­thing.” The sig­na­ture treat­ment: 168 Yil­i­uba. The sig­na­ture 168 Yil­i­uba treat­ment de­liv­ers 168 min­utes of bliss, com­plete with six ther­a­pists and eight treat­ments. What’s in­cluded? A full-body salt scrub, dry body brush­ing, aro­mather­apy steam bath, syn­chro­nized four-hand mas­sage, fa­cial, scalp mas­sage, paraf­fin for your hands and feet, and a foot mas­sage. Sig­na­ture tea and snacks: Home­made ginger-honey tea, fresh juices, per­sonal fruit plat­ter, se­lec­tion of nuts, dried fruit and Wynn gra­nola cook­ies.

SPA AT WYNN Best for... A girls’ day out

A won­der­land of well­ness ex­pe­ri­ences, the Spa at Wynn has ev­ery­thing you need for a re­lax­ing day out. “If you want to spend a spa day with your girl­friends, stop in at the salon af­ter a treat­ment, or go to the gym be­fore­hand... this en­vi­ron­ment has ev­ery­thing,” says Simms. Chan­nel­ing a Euro­pean res­i­dence with oriental touches, the Spa’s re­lax­ation zone and heat treat­ment fa­cil­i­ties feel spa­cious and calm­ing—ideal for small groups who wish to re­lax to­gether. Of course, if you pre­fer to fly solo, that’s an op­tion, too. Among the 14 treat­ment rooms, you’ll find two VIP Suites—one of which in­cludes an en­tic­ing six-foot, 10-inch-long whirlpool, set upon a plat­form like a throne. The sig­na­ture treat­ment: Silk and Cash­mere Awak­en­ing. This twohour-long clas­sic ex­pe­ri­ence starts with an ex­fo­li­a­tion treat­ment (us­ing warm silk gloves), fol­lowed by a full-body mas­sage and cash­mere-in­fused silky body wrap. To fin­ish, a ther­a­pist ap­plies rich shea but­ter body cream (in­fused with lo­tus flower ex­tract) to leave your skin feel­ing silky smooth. Sig­na­ture tea and snacks: Gin­seng tea, Wing Lei tea, in­fused fruit wa­ter, fresh fruit, dried fruit and cook­ies.
