Though Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Altira Spa is not located in one of Macau’s best shopping areas, after your treatment you can hop on a complimentary shuttle bus at the Altira Macau hotel and take a short 5- to 10-minute ride to City of Dreams.
This mammoth complex has plenty of stores to suit your shopping fancy in The Boulevard, home to international fashion chains, jewelry boutiques, food stores, restaurants and much more. If that’s not enough, The Venetian Macao and Four Seasons Hotel Macao are right across the street, with both also offering a number of shops for luxury brands from around the world.
A bit of retail therapy on vacation is always a good thing. Whether you want to spend your cash on designer brands or explore the authentic shops in the area, our location at Altira Spa puts you close to both. If you’re in the mood to spend a little money, make your way to the Boulevard at the City of Dreams property and get some good use out of your credit card at Bally, Burberry, Gucci, Jimmy Choo and Tumi. There are also other high-end designer labels at the shops at the Venetian and other mega resorts nearby. If you want to discover the more authentic parts of the area, Taipa offers a weekly flea market in the heart of Taipa Village. Lines of stalls strung along the bustling market give you plenty of opportunities to pick up traditional gifts, fresh produce, toys and clothes while immersing yourself in the cultural environment around you. When you want to break away from getting primped and pampered at our spa, the market in Taipa offers a great alternative for you during your stay. A fun fact — Tapia is also known for its traditional cookies, so peruse the streets on the island and find the old village shops that have been baking and selling the same tasty treats for years.
