A chic and family-friendly Cotai Strip hotel
Thanks to its convenient location at the center of Macau’s Cotai Strip, Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central offers a comfortable stay filled with lots of options to keep you busy in and around the family-friendly property, which opened in April 2012. Relax at one of the six swimming pools and take advantage of the floatable foam menus from the Pool Café while you splash around — order up chicken fingers with french fries for the little ones or get the “Yeung Zhou” fried rice with a strawberry daiquiri for yourself.
The 38-story Macau hotel (known for being the biggest Holiday Inn in the world) comes complete with 1,159 guest rooms and a sweet view of the Cotai Strip. Choose which pillow you’d prefer to have (soft or firm), delight in the use of paraben-free bathroom amenities such as shampoo and conditioner, and enjoy spacious suites that range in size from 688 to 1,711 square feet.
What guests appreciate the most about this property is its placement in the Sands Cotai Central complex alongside Conrad Macao, Cotai Central and Sheraton Macao Hotel Cotai Central. The area affords access to numerous attractions, including the Shoppes at Cotai Central (home to Bottega Veneta and Swarovski) and a variety of eateries such as the popular 24-hour Chinese restaurant North. When you’re there, you must order the crowd pleaser: the fried banana dessert. And if bananas aren’t your thing, chef Jeff Chang will swap them out for apples or strawberries. Enjoy a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side of this sugary confection that’s a Beijing family staple.
Work off those calories in the property’s 24-hour gym, which provides TechnoGym equipment and items such as free weights, circuit steps, fitness balls and his-and-her locker rooms equipped with 32 wooden lockers each and more.
