The 3 Most Luxurious Resorts in Macau

Champagne Being Poured Into Glasses With a Macau

2020 has arrived, and as we progress through the new year, we can see the world around us changing at a rate that can be difficult to keep up with. Economies are collapsing, while others are reaching heights that are soaring high.

One of the economies that has reached extremely new heights is that of the famous gambling mecca, Macau, a place of opulence and luxury that takes customer service to heights most people have never even dreamed of.

On this page, we’ll be talking about Macau as a high-end gambling destination and recommending three of the most luxurious resorts in Macau.

Gambling at Macau’s Luxury Resorts

For a while, Las Vegas was the only real go-to for people that wanted to stay in a city that was almost entirely dedicated to the casino industry. In the United States, we also have Atlantic City. But it doesn’t have nearly the same level of popularity as Las Vegas has, not to mention the fact that Atlantic City just doesn’t have the luxury, glitz, or glam that you’ll find in Las Vegas.

10 years ago, Macau wasn’t a place that many people knew of, much less be something you would think of when you heard the phrase, “gambling meccas of the world.” Today, not only does Macau hold the rank as one of the world’s elite gambling meccas, it also holds the rank for one of the largest economies of any other place worldwide.

With a booming economy comes wealth and luxury. If you’ve visited Macau, then you know that it has a lot of both. If you’re planning a trip to Macau and are hoping to stay at one of their most luxurious resorts, then we hope this post shines some light on a few of the available options that are present in Macau in 2020.

Although just about every resort in Macau is opulent in the extreme and is going to blow most of the resorts around the world out of the water, there are three resorts that impress the residents of Macau. Despite the fact that their residents are used to seeing all kinds of hotels that scream money and luxury, our recommendations amaze every visitor.

If comfort and luxury is your thing on vacation (who doesn’t love being taken care of and feeling like royalty while on vacation?), then Macau is the place to go. Here are some of the most luxurious resorts in Macau in 2020.

1 – The Ritz-Carlton Macau

The first resort that holds the rank as one of the most luxurious resorts in Macau is The Ritz-Carlton Macau. Even the name alone, “Ritz-Carlton,” sounds luxurious. Anyone who knows anything about the Ritz-Carlton brand knows that they offer some of the most beautiful high-end resort options in the entire world.

The Ritz-Carlton in Macau is a suite-only resort that brings a high elevation of luxury to the lucky person that gets to stay there. The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company is an American multinational company that operates luxury hotel chains across the globe, and they’re well-known for catering to the richest and most successful people in the world.

The company owns 101 luxury hotels and resorts in 30 countries and territories, featuring over 27,500 rooms. The company was founded in 1983 and is a subsidiary of Marriott International.

The Ritz-Carlton in Macau goes way beyond the offerings of your typical hotel. It goes way beyond the offerings of even most luxury hotels. And that’s before we even take into consideration that it sits in Macau, a city with golden skyscrapers and high rollers from all over the world.

On top of that, the Ritz-Carlton sits inside of the Galaxy Macau complex, a place that simply screams opulence. The hotel features all-suite accommodations with amazing city views and elegant decor.

The resort includes four dining venues, one of them being the famous Michelin-starred Lai Heen, an absolute must-visit if you’re in Macau for any length of time and want to experience some of the best dining in the world. The hotel has access to luxury shopping, a 10-screen movie theater, and family-friendly attractions such as a water park.

Sitting high above the Cotai Strip in China, the Ritz-Carlton offers an experience that’s perfect for a person wanting to experience a honeymoon that is truly unforgettable. Being a world away from your home while sitting in a five-star luxury resort makes for quite an unforgettable experience, especially when you factor in the incredible staff who are going to cater to your every need and make you feel like royalty.

There are plentiful amenities that will make you want to stay forever. Besides the fine dining options, there are several bars, a full-service spa, and easy access to the rest of the entertainment opportunities that can be found while in Macau. You can’t go wrong with the Ritz!

2 – Nuwa Macau

The next luxurious resort opportunity for your next visit to Macau is one that holds the winning seat for the Forbes Five Star award. Nuwa Macau is arguably the most luxurious and best option for you when trying to decide on the best resort to stay at while in Macau.

Nuwa sits inside what is called The City of Dreams and features 33 luxurious villas. Along with its 33 villas come 290 different guest rooms that all offer an exclusive experience for those that seek the most elite forms of luxury. The Cotai Strip features plentiful things to do in Macau while being the home for Macau’s City of Dreams. Nuwa provides accommodations that are stylish and is home to The Art of the City collection, highlighting Asia’s vibrant and contemporary art scene.

The Cotai Strip is a popular part of Macau and features a large holiday complex with a casino and shopping arcade. The strip features Nuwa Macau, which has an incredible spa, an outdoor pool, free Wi-Fi, and every other amenity that you could expect from a resort that is leading the world in luxury.

For a resort that won the Forbes Five Star award, you can expect that it won’t fall short in the amenity arena. The warm colors inside of the resort provide an inviting feel for the guests in their rooms. Each room comes with a 42-inch TV. The windows in each room stretch from the floor all the way up to the ceiling, providing an amazing view of Cotai, Macau, and all of its wondrous beauty.

The bathrooms in the suites feature a spa-style bathtub for soaking that comfortably fits more than one person, which is definitely something to take into consideration for couples trying to find the perfect resort to stay at while in Macau.

Nuwa is within walking distance to attractions in Macau such as the Taipa Houses Museum and Cunha Street. It is a 10-minute drive from Macau International Airport and a 20-minute drive from Macau Maritime Ferry Terminal.

3 – Banyan Tree Macau

The last resort on my list is called Banyan Tree Macau. It is a true luxury hotel that is designed to tap into and pamper all of your senses. Banyan Tree is the very first high rise resort to be built in Macau.

Another resort that is a part of Galaxy Macau in Cotai City, Banyan Tree Macau features your very own private pool in whatever suite you choose to stay in. The resort has full-sized resort villas that all feature a unique style of Chinese architecture and design elements.

The interior of the resort, as well as its rooms, feature a warm red color and red accents. If you are looking for a resort that will heighten the potential for a romantic time in Macau, then look no further.

Each room includes a flat-screen TV, a well-stocked mini bar, as well as free Wi-Fi throughout the entire resort. Banyan tree is also a convenient 10-minute drive to Macau International Airport as well as a 10-minute drive to Taipa Ferry Terminal. Free parking is available at the resort.

If you decide to make this luxurious and artistic resort your accommodation of choice during a vacation in Macau, then you can look forward to relaxing in private cabanas that surround the outdoor pool.

When you’re not relaxing at your private cabana, feel free to burn off the extra calories gained from all the amazing places to eat by way of the fitness center available for any guest at Banyan Tree Macau.

There are a couple of amazing food options for those staying at Banyan Tree. Saffron offers authentic Thai cuisine, while Belon specializes in seafood and grill options.


I hope that after reading that you will have some more confidence when trying to pick the most luxurious resort option for your visit to Macau.
