Here are the five things you’ll want to know about Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Wynn Macau before you arrive:
1. You don’t have to spend a fortune to eat like royalty. Take, for example, the dim sum at Wing Lei. For only 188 Macanese patacas (about $24), you can feast on six dishes that give you an upscale take on classic Cantonese dim sum.
2. There’s loads of free entertainment. Crowds of people gather for Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Wynn Macau’s flashy exhibitions including a nightly light and water symphony running every fifteen minutes at the hotel’s Performance Lake; Dragon of Fortune, a fiery show combining smoke, lights and a 28-foot dragon; and the Tree of Prosperity, a massive tree sculpture covered in 24-karat gold.
3. There are minimum bets. The stakes are high at the casino of Wynn Macau. The lowest minimum bets we could find were for 300 patacas (about $40) for baccarat and blackjack. It’s best to check beforehand what the minimum bets are for your games of choice so you know how much cash to bring.
4. It’s not Las Vegas. Unlike Vegas casinos that seek to loosen you up with alcohol, Macanese casinos do not serve adult beverages. Instead, servers come by with trolleys presenting hot tea in stylish glassware to keep you consistently caffeinated.
5. There are plenty of stylish places to grab a drink, though. After an afternoon at the casino, you can relax at Cinnebar, a stylish lounge with a fantastic garden-side patio overlooking the pool. Sip carefully crafted cocktails made with top spirits, fresh juices and whole spices while munching on the savory snacks made in-house each day.
