Macau can exhaust even the most experienced traveler, but thankfully the vibrant destination houses six Five-Star spas to relax and unwind. Altira Spa, located inside Five-Star Altira Macau, is simply stunning with its infinity-edge pool overlooking the Macau Peninsula. The 6,000-square-foot oasis takes up two full stories inside the building, making room for a variety of water facilities including vitality pools, Vichy showers and ice fountains. Treatments range from gemstone body massages to detoxifying seaweed wraps to collagen facials. The Spa at Encore Macau only holds eight treatment rooms for the ultimate exclusivity, and each room has its very own aromatherapy shower, steam room and sauna. Try the ginseng hot stone massage or DNA (“Do Not Age”) facial. Like its other outposts around the world, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Macau provides the same soothing respite that the company is known for, with a focus on traditional Chinese medicine and Macanese philosophies. Fun fact: When you book a signature treatment at the Five-Star spa, you receive a sample of the products used. If you’re staying at Five-Star Wynn Macau, be sure to carve out some time for a session at The Spa at Wynn Macau. The Five-Star sanctuary radiates a soothing Zen vibe with its subtle lavender scent, and special, ultra high-end services include a two-hour caviar therapy and hydrotherapy treatment. For more pampering, head to The Spa at Crown, a Five-Star sanctuary located inside of Five-Star Crown Towers Macau. This luxurious eight-treatment room spa offers its spa-goers everything from facials (try the 60-minute revitalizing Hydrator) to body wraps (experience the 30-minute detoxifying Moor mud wrap). Expect to find separate wet spa facilities on hand for men and women in addition to a hair salon, gym (be sure to meet with a personal trainer) and outdoor swimming pool. You'll also want to visit Five-Star Banyan Tree Spa Macau where an oasis of relaxation awaits. The spa, which is located inside of Five-Star Banyan Tree Macau, features 21 treatment suites in its facility filled with natural woods, exposed stone walls and a bamboo garden. We recommend the 150-minute Royal Banyan treatment, which includes everything from an orange ginger scrub to a Chinese foot massage. We promise that you’ll leave the Asian-inspired spa feeling refreshed before heading out for a fun-filled evening on the Cotai Strip.
