Nüwa Macau

A reigning resort on Macau's Cotai Strip

As soon as you enter Nüwa Macau, the lobby sets the scene for what is to come. The dramatic lobby has soaring 23-foot-high ceilings, embroidered wall coverings with bronze details and woven metallic screens.

Taking its name from the famed heroine in Chinese mythology, Nüwa Macau pays homage to Asia's rich culture, blending traditional aesthetics and contemporary art.

Set inside the sprawling Macau City of Dreams complex, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is a haven on the Cotai Strip with about 300 contemporary, tranquil and spacious accommodations, including 33 luxurious villas, and expansive bathrooms with deep-soaking tubs and separate rain showers.

Your plush accommodations will be a welcome respite after feasting on excellent Cantonese fare at Jade Dragon, indulging in treatments based on the five elements at the spa and gambling in the casino. Be sure to check out Nüwa Macau's art exhibit to see the work of many well-known Chinese artists on display.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Jade Dragon is an ideal venue to sample a variety of upscale Cantonese dishes and one of the finest selections of Chinese teas in the area.
  • Nüwa Macau is part of Cotai’s popular City of Dreams, a massive complex where you’ll find restaurants, spas, shops and a casino. It’s also home to The House of Dancing Water, a spectacular ensemble performance on par with the world’s best.
  • The staff at this luxury Macau hotel go out of its way to provide efficient, friendly and personalized service sure to make you feel like a valued guest. Everyone we encountered during our stay, from the housekeepers to the bellmen, greeted us by name and with a smile.
  • It’s a pleasure returning to your guest room every evening to find the bed made, bedroom and bathroom completely cleaned, lighting dimmed, curtains drawn and special treats such as chocolate truffles, a bottle of foot gel and stick of lip balm left out as small gifts.
  • Whether you’re staying at the hotel on business or pleasure, a visit to the Five-Star Nüwa Macau Spa is a must. Pamper yourself with the Mineral Stones Massage, Blue Diamond Facial or other​ lavish treatment.
Things to Know
  • There’s no need to pack anything but your essential toiletries. All guest rooms and suites at this luxury Macau hotel are stocked with designer bath products, along with a full assortment of other amenities such as shaving and dental kits, cotton buds, emery board and hair bands.
  • The Five-Star hotel’s spacious gym is outfitted with state-of-the-art TechnoGym and Precor cardio and strength-training equipment, including treadmills, ellipticals, full sets of free weights and a variety of weight machines. An added perk are the chilled bottles of water and Pocari Sweat sports drink are set out next to a big bowl of fresh fruit.
  • You’ll have some three dozen casinos to try your luck at during your stay in Macau, but the closest one to Nüwa Macau is just outside a side entrance that connects to the City of Dreams lifestyle complex. 
  • Whether you’re planning to visit the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel during the heat of summer or dead of winter, bring your swimsuit because the hotel’s outdoor pool and spacious Jacuzzi are both open and heated year-round.
The Rooms
  • All guest rooms at this luxury Macau hotel are outfitted with plush queen- or king-sized Simmons beds made with 600-thread-count linens and a goose-down duvet.
  • Bedroom amenities include a 65-inch flat-screen HDR TV hooked up to an interactive entertainment system, complimentary Wi-Fi and bottles of water, bowl of fresh fruit, Harney & Sons tea bags and Nespresso coffee capsules that are all replenished daily.
  • The highlight of all guest rooms at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, however, are arguably the splendid views you’ll enjoy of the glitzy Cotai and Taipa scenery through floor-to-ceiling windows — ask for accommodations on a high floor to get the best vantage point.
  • We were also impressed by how well soundproofed our guest room was — we didn’t hear a single obtrusive noise from the hallway, outdoors or neighboring rooms during our stay.
  • The well-appointed bathrooms in the guest rooms at Nüwa Macau are fashioned from marble and offer plenty of room for two people to comfortably use at the same time. The spacious grooming area features two Duravit sinks outfitted with Zucchetti fixtures, a large mirror that spans the length of the countertop and a small side vanity mirror.
The Look
  • The hotel’s Oriental heritage is celebrated with a variety of attractive decorative pieces placed throughout the premises, from a bamboo forest and bronzed Chinese vases in the lobby to Asian-style artwork and feature panels in the guest rooms.
  • With its big, boldly designed lobby and flashing colored lights illuminating the building’s exterior during the evening, this Five-Star hotel fits right into the glitzy Cotai scenery — and wouldn’t look out of place on the Las Vegas Strip, either.
