Emerald Tower at MGM COTAI

An ultra-luxurious retreat for Macau’s highest rollers

Casino resort MGM COTAI spared no expense when it came to Emerald Tower. Upon arrival, you’re treated to the full VIP experience, from exclusive access to the lobby — aptly clad in an emerald-green marble — to lofty accommodations outfitted with 10-foot-high ceilings and top-of-the-line amenities.

The property’s rooms, suites and villas range from 463 to 4,000 square feet, each promising modern East-meets-West aesthetics alongside views of the Cotai skyline or Coloane’s rustic landscapes. The crown jewel is the three-bedroom Emerald Villa, where Chinese symbolism and feng shui principles abound. Inspired by China’s imperial gardens, the residence blends classical Chinese beauty with modern comforts, such as heated floors, dedicated elevators, private massage and KTV rooms (the latter are for karaoke), and personal butler services.

Those with an affinity for the arts will undoubtedly appreciate the impressive MGM COTAI art collection. Discover more than 300 pieces — contemporary Asian paintings, sculptures, imperial carpets, large-scale installations — many of which can be experienced in the grand Emerald Lobby.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Don’t miss an opportunity to see works by some of China’s most famous living artists. From modern abstract masterpieces by Hsiao Chin to kaleidoscopic cultural pop art by Xue Song, MGM COTAI is a veritable playground for art lovers and a springboard for those yet unacquainted with China’s vibrant artistic landscape.
  • In homage to the past, the hotel’s art collection includes 28 carefully preserved imperial carpets from the Qing dynasty. With only 300 still in existence, this rare display offers a peek into China’s rich historical and cultural legacy.
  • Tranquility awaits at Tria Spa, the luxury hotel’s urban wellness facility. Designed to feel like an enchanted forest, this relaxing refuge will make you lose track of time. It also lays claim to Macau’s only spa-based sound therapy lounge.
  • Rediscover Sichuanese cuisine with the multisensory menu at Five Foot Road. Inspired by the opulent banquets and soirees of Chengdu high society in the 1940s, the dining experience feels like a masterclass in technique and presentation.
  • Raise a glass at Bar Patuá, named after Macau’s fast-disappearing Portuguese-based creole language. The bar transports tipplers back in time with crescent-shaped marigold couches, plush Oriental carpets and warm golden accents. Try the bar’s signature cocktail, the Patuá, a heady mix of Chinese gin, port, housemade tonic, a unique spice blend and Macau’s only locally brewed baijiu (a distilled rice liquor).

The Rooms

  • Dressed in a palette of umber and gold, the Macau hotel's rooms feel sophisticated yet comforting, warm yet minimalist. Each comes with an elegant marble bathroom, complimentary mini-bar, a 55-inch LED TV loaded with in-room movies, plus early check-in and late checkout.
  • Ranging from 937 to 1,012 square feet, the Emerald Suites take the luxury up a notch with walk-in rain and steam showers, marble baths, and distinct spaces for dining, lounging and rest.
  • Designed with VIP guests in mind, the 28 Emerald Villas — occupying the tower’s 25-27th, 28th and 30th floors — are a sight to behold. These one-, two- and three-bedroom residences showcase a modern interpretation of Chinese opulence, with a gold-ingot-inspired bathtub, therapeutic shower with massage jets, Oscar Niemeyer chaise lounge and floral carpeting.
  • The villas feature captivating artwork and feng shui elements, such as a moving sand art piece that evokes classical Chinese landscape paintings or a custom octagonal aquarium home to beautiful red koi.
  • Techy travelers will appreciate the state-of-the-art additions, from wireless chargers to USB-fitted switches, surround sound and in-room controls at your fingertips.
