An extravagant Macau escape
MGM MACAU is hard to miss. If you don’t spot MGM’s trademark gold lion out front, you’ll recognize the building’s exterior. The hotel’s glass façade looks like three alternating waves of gold, platinum and rose gold — a fitting decorative touch, given its location along the South China Sea.

But the hotel’s best design feature is the Grande Praça, a beautiful 82-foot, floor-to-glass-ceiling structure that echoes Portugal’s town squares. At a towering 35 stories, the luxurious hotel features 600 rooms, the most lavish of which are its villas. The MGM makes for a stylish home base during a getaway to the action-packed island city.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • In a city that's perhaps best known for its local food — a unique blend of Cantonese and Portuguese styles — MGM's nine restaurants and bars offer up a range of different cuisines to suit any palate.
  • Stunning from the outside, the hotel is also a vision in the inside, particularly in its fantastical lobby. Dubbed the Grand Praça, the lobby features European-style facades and multiple terraces meant to evoke Portugal, all underneath a skylight dome.
  • The MGM plays host to art exhibitions, an ever-changing installation in the Grande Praça and plenty of festivals and celebrations. 
  • Tria Spa is an urban oasis and the perfect place to get some peace and quiet, featuring a hammam, vitality pool and warming laconicum with tiled-loungers, chairs and footbaths in addition to the exquisite treatment menu, salon services and wellness facility.
  • Whether you’re enjoying a dip in the infinity pool or taking in the 180-degree view of the South China Sea from the Jacuzzi, poolside is the perfect place to chill out and sip a cool cocktail.
Things to Know
  • You may be happy enough to relax in your extravagant room, but the hotel has the added advantage of being directly adjacent to One Central, one of the city's most comprehensive luxury shopping malls, and with historical landmarks and attractions close by.
The Rooms
  • All the of the MGM’s 600 rooms offer a contemporary style with artistic flair, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows with a panoramic view of either the skyline or the ocean.
