Our Inspector's Highlights
• Celebrating romance is very important at this Five-Star resort, where nearly all its suites, villas and additional amenities incorporate features to celebrate love, relaxation and desire.

• The resort boasts that its spa is the city’s most comprehensive and luxurious spa in Macau. The Five-Star spa has body treatments performed by certified Banyan Tree Spa Academy graduates, a relaxing steam bath and organic products.

• The local scene is something to be reveled. All year-long, guests can attend an array of nearby festivals and celebrations including the Macau Arts Festival, Macau International Boat Race and the Macau Grand Prix, the city’s most famous international event.
Things to Know
• This hotel is located in glitzy Cotai, about 15 minutes by taxi from Macau International Airport and is an even shorter trip from the Taipa Ferry Terminal. If your taxi driver isn’t familiar with the hotel — ours wasn’t — try directing him to the well-known Galaxy Macau Hotel, Banyan Tree Macau is connected to it.

• Not only are each of the villas and suites at the hotel outfitted with a small, heated relaxation pool, the hotel is also home to the biggest sky-wave pool in the world, a 43,000-square-foot space that also has three Jacuzzis, a man-made beach and is connected to a separate lap pool. When the weather outdoors isn’t cooperating, there’s also an indoor pool on the 31st floor for you to use.

• If you’re traveling to Macau to try your luck at the casino, while you’ll have plenty of nearby options for rolling the dice – the most convenient of which is at attached Galaxy Macau Hotel. It’s a full-service casino, with everything from mazes of slot machines to blackjack tables to roulette wheels and small-scale Vegas-style performances.

• Don’t worry about packing basic toiletries. Bathrooms at Banyan Tree Macau are stocked with a variety of complimentary products, including dental and shaving kits, combs, nail files, cotton buds and bottles of Banyan Tree’s signature body wash, lotion, shampoo and conditioner.
The Rooms
• Each luxurious bedroom in the Five-Star Banyan Tree Macau Cotai Pool Suite comes with incredible views of Hengqin Island or Cotai City, custom wooden bathtubs, king-size beds and a rain shower. You can also opt for a resort view if you’d rather take a peek at the Galaxy Macau's Grand Resort Deck.

• The Banyan Suite takes indulgent living up a notch, with its separate dining and living areas alongside a private relaxation pool. The resort offers one or two bedroom options so bring the kids along for a family getaway they’ll never forget.

• If you’re looking for a suite with floor-to-ceiling glass window views of  the cityscape as well as a personal pool inside for you to relax in, then the resort’s Signature Pool Suit has your name on it.

• Villas at Banyan Tree Macau are not to be forgotten—including its sky garden, large outdoor pool and crystal Jacuzzi and indoor jetpool. If you’re really looking to splurge, the Presidential Suite, occupying the 30th and 31st floors and includes a spa, butler and casino room, will feel like a magnificent mansion.
The Look
• With its in-room relaxation pool, Tibetan wood bath tub and high-tech amenities such as dual flat-screen TVs, Blu-ray DVD player and bedside room control panels, accommodations at this luxury Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Macau hotel are chic, stylish and contemporary.

• Soft, soothing music wafts through the public areas, from the towering lobby to the dimly lit guest room corridors, superseded only by the occasional plucking of a Khim in the lobby by a musician dressed in traditional Thai costume.

• A number of natural elements are incorporated into Banyan Tree Macau’s overall design, from beds of stones and water installations in the lobby to artwork made from wood positioned near the guest room elevator areas.

• Light fixtures near the lobby elevators are covered by ornate Oriental-style shades, while abstract Asian paintings and decorative pieces with flowers, leaves or forests are hung in the villas and suites.

• It may not be as showy as some of the other glitzy hotels and casinos in Cotai, but Banyan Tree Macau certainly has a little over-the-top Vegas glamour in it, particularly at its outdoor pool area that has a 350-ton white-sand beach and the world’s largest outdoor sky-wave pool.
