The dimly lit entrance of Banyan Tree Spa Macau looks like a small bamboo forest re-imagined as a contemporary, indoor Oriental-style oasis. Just inside this luxury Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Macau spa’s large sliding glass doors you’ll pass a sleek, stylish water installation centered by a modern art sculpture, with dark-wood paneled floors beneath you and the ceiling uniquely covered in bamboo leaf patterns. A spacious seating area with big, low-slung couches, small wooden tables and black paneling with bamboo patterns that match the ceiling is to your right, while to your left is the spa’s cute boutique, where you’ll find everything from pewter decorative pieces to a full line of Banyan Tree spa products.
True to its roots, the Banyan Tree Spa Macau — located on the second floor of the Banyan Tree Macau hotel — is designed with a contemporary Asian theme in mind — a motif that becomes clear as soon as you step into the spa. The bamboo-patterned reception area, a tranquil water court, and a bamboo courtyard with glass skylight all invite guests to step into another world away from the city’s entertainment scene. At the dimly lit spa entrance, artistic crystal light fixtures and an intricate Tree of Life art installation offer a warm welcome to guests. The Tree of Life symbolizes immortality, and highlights for guests the importance of preserving and connecting with nature. In the reception area, impressive floor-to-ceiling bamboo mesh, sand-textured walls and a crystal flower pendant light fixture creates a warm ambience, plus, the low-slung couches are perfect to sink into before and after your treatment. While it is tempting to zone out on the couches, look left to see the spa’s boutique, where you’ll find everything from pewter decorative pieces to a full line of Banyan Tree Spa products.
