Our Inspector's Highlights
• One of the last hotels to go up on the original Taipa Macau strip, the Five-Star hotel is a stone’s throw from many of the major casino floors as well as city’s infamous bar area and cultural attractions with a direct connection the One Central Macau, one of the city’s top malls.
