The Spa at Wynn Macau

A tranquil Macau escape
VERIFIED LUXURY
Worlds away from the poker tables and slot machines of Wynn Macau’s glitzy ground-floor casino, The Spa at Wynn Macau provides a soothing feast for the eyes of weary travelers.

Adorned with Oriental-style artwork and ornately carved woods, dressed in neutral colors and incorporating stone and other natural materials into its minimalist Asian-contemporary design style, the Five-Star spa exudes tranquility at every turn. With 14 private treatment rooms — three exclusively reserved for couples — and a register of luxurious treatments, including body massages, rejuvenating facials and even champagne baths, you’ll have no trouble finding your style of Zen.

Whether you’re nursing a case of jet lag from a long trans-Pacific flight, or simply want to get away from it all for an hour or two and treat yourself to a world-class massage, this elite spa is certainly one of the finest options in Macau.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• The Chinese spa's philosophy is to tailor its services to whatever ails you, whether it be a knotted-up back or a less-than-perfect complexion. With more than 30 treatments, the pampering spa strives to meet your individual facial, massage and body treatment needs, combining traditional treatments with signature therapies such as the Macanese massage, ginseng hot stones and a number of hydrotherapies.

• Spa-goers who seek unique treatments will appreciate the treatment menu, which includes services like the the sounds-good-enough-to-eat deluxe caviar therapy facial. Designed for dry or mature skin, the treatment uses lotus flower, pearls and caviar in its masks and eye creams to eliminate those pesky crow’s feet and leave your skin looking younger.

• Refreshments are plentiful this pampering spa, from water bottles in the wet areas to fresh fruit-flavored water placed in the locker rooms. On our most recent visit, we were delighted to find coffee and four different varieties of tea — two hot and two cold — including chamomile-passion fruit, ginseng and detox tea from the hotel’s Five-Star Wing Lei at Wynn Macau restaurant, as well as a bowl of fresh fruit and elegant glass serving dishes filled with dried prunes, apricots and low-fat cookies in the relaxation area.

• When getting a pedicure, you will notice that the chairs are set up in a row facing the pool, making for an entertaining afternoon of people-watching for you and a friend.

• Men can indulge in their own specialized treatments, such as the black diamond gentleman’s back sculpture, which focuses on renewing the back through a hot, steamed-towel cleansing, black diamond exfoliation, massage and moisturizing mask. The black diamond gentleman’s facial employs many of the same techniques, adding a black bioactive silt mask as well as lymphatic drainage and acupressure massages to make your body and face feel great.
Things to Know
• The intimate spa is the ultimate couples retreat; it is outfitted with rooms for twosomes complete with a private tub that’s lit with candles and sprinkled with rose petals. Reserve the room and your own set of treatments, or go with the Time for Two package, which includes a body scrub for both of you as well as a luxurious bath filled with champagne and roses.

• This exotic spa doesn’t offer wraps in the same sense as many other high-end spas do, but its bio-rhythms treatment takes the place of what you’d normally expect.

• If you are planning a co-ed spa trip, note that the relaxation rooms are gender separated.

• if you can't make it to the spa during regular hours, indulge in one of the in-room massages, available 24 hours a day.


The Treatments
• When your body is one big knot, unfurl it with one of the extravagant spa's 10 unique massage services. Rubdowns range from the signature Macanese massage, a holistic deep-tissue treatment that uses blended oils, to a soothing lymphatic massage, which promises to improve the circulation proteins and immune cells and to reduce cellulite.

• More traditional options available to you as well, such as a Swedish, Thai and sports massages; cupping and ginseng hot stones; and Tui Na, an oil-less, deep massage.

• The unique bio-rhythms treatment starts with a Himalayan salt scrub and a mineral-rich mud wrap, followed by a concurrent head-and-face marma massage, which targets specific energy points. A Kundalini back massage finishes the treatment, focusing on your back, skin, head and face.

• To get the most out of your spa visit, add a hydrotherapy treatment to your experience. The enticing inner peace bath uses Himalayan salts and essential oils to soften your skin, and the champagne rose bath goes the sexy route by adding flower petals and bubbly into your tub.

• The treatment that packs the most pampering is the Pure Indulgence. The three-and-a-half-hour experience lives up to its name with a Himalayan salt bath, Macanese massage, organic fruit facial and manicure.
The Facilities
• You won’t spend much time in the beautifully designed waiting area, but it’s sure to leave a positive — and lasting — first impression as you’re escorted from the reception area to either the men’s or women’s locker room. Plush flower-patterned carpeting, textured golden walls and elegant koi pond paintings highlight the décor of this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa’s central corridor, which is also lined on both sides by chic brass lanterns set within beds of smooth white stones.

• Dimly lit, furnished with cushioned lounge chairs and featuring a wall fashioned from different shades of squared marble, the relaxation lounge is a cozy, masculine space to kick up your feet and unwind before your treatments.

• Located within this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa’s communal wet areas — there’s one for men and a separate one for women — this comfortable area is stocked with local newspapers and such magazines as Golf, Men’s Health and GQ if you care to do some light reading, or you can browse a variety of local and international cable channels on a huge flat-screen television.

• You’ll want to check out the sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi while you’re in there, and be sure to take in the relaxation-inducing lavender scent that permeates the space.

• The Five-Star spa’s locker room also provides a shower section with everything you need to freshen up after your treatment, as well as vanity stations to make sure you leave looking even better than when you arrived.
