It can be hard deciding what to pack for a stay at Altira Macau. Here are a few things you don’t want to leave at home when prepping for your trip to this luxurious hotel in Macau:
1. A few dressy outfits. Although Macau is pretty casual, the luxury hotel has some upscale restaurants and bars, so you might want to bring a few formal get-ups so you can blend right in with the nattily dressed crowd.
2. Your swimsuit. It would be a shame to miss out on one of the world’s top pools. The indoor infinity-edged pool looks out over the Macau peninsula. Even if you don’t feel like taking a dip, at least go sit poolside in one of the comfy lounge chairs. The view from the floor-to-ceiling windows at the 16th-floor pool is arguably the best in the hotel.
3. Reading material. While you’re lounging poolside or in your room’s deep, Japanese-style tub, you’ll probably want to delve into a good book or magazine. Make note to pack some reading material.
4. Running shoes. There are some great jogging routes near the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, and if you enjoy working out, the state-of-the-art gym will be calling your name.
5. An extra bag. Macau is known for its great shopping, so pack another malleable suitcase. You know that you’ll need at least one additional bag for all of your souvenirs.
You’re going to want to take advantage of our indoor infinity-edge pool with views of the Macau peninsula, so bring your bathing suit. Our pool is ideal for some relaxation, whether you’ve come from a spa treatment or wish to read a book on one of our lounge chairs. Now that you’re in Macau, set some time aside to explore the area outside of the hotel. Bring a pair of comfy walking shoes so that you don’t have to cut your sightseeing short because of blisters or soreness. While you’re out exploring the island of Taipa or the surrounding areas, don’t forget your camera so that you can document all of the unique and unforgettable things you are bound to come across. We’ll be honest — even though our staff at Altira Macau speaks English among other languages, it’s always a good idea to bring along a translation book to help you with the various languages spoken (such as Cantonese and Mandarin). Plus, it’s a great way to learn a few words in a different language and impress your friends when you get back from your trip.
