Best Luxury Hotels In Macau

Macau certainly lives up to its nickname as ‘the Vegas of China’, but there’s much more to the city than that. Having been a Portuguese colony for over 300 years, the two cultures sit side by side, with Chinese temples looking down on Portuguese paving tiles. On roads with Iberian names, Cantonese is spoken, and food can be Chinese, European or fusion. The old city centre mixes colonial buildings with trendy boutiques, while further south sit the islands: the Macanese architecture of Taipa, the casinos of Cotai, and Coloane’s pretty villages and beaches. Heading to Hong Kong for luxury hotel break, consider adding in a couple of days in Macau which is a short ferry ride away from Hong Kong island. Here are our TLE favourite 5-star and luxury hotels in this unique holiday destination.
