Encore at Wynn Macau: The World's Loveliest Hotel

Steve Wynn knows gambling. Better yet, Steve Wynn knows casinos. And still better yet, Steve Wynn knows hospitality. Apparently, he also knows his works of art, but that’s beside the point. For the sake of this article, Steve Wynn knows pretty much all there is to know about running a successful casino resort. Case in point is the fact that Wynn has opened yet another casino in the gambling hungry city of Macau. That makes two casinos in Macau under Steve Wynn’s belt – basically, to offset his twin properties on Las Vegas Boulevard.

Opening Wednesday of last week, Encore at Wynn Macau is much like Wynn Las Vegas, except that instead of one casino to be shared by both resorts, Encore at Wynn Macau has its very own casino. Needless to say, the gambling industry is doing just fine in Macau, unlike in Las Vegas where monthly revenue has steadily declined over the last two years.

In addition to the 205,000 square foot casino, Encore at Wynn Macau offers a sprawling complex of over 400 stores and boutique shops, including Chanel and Cartier, as well as six restaurants to feed the hungry masses after a day of gambling and shopping.

For anybody who has never stayed at the Wynn Las Vegas, it is certainly a pleasure. In fact, I personally consider it the best place to stay on the Las Vegas Strip. Sure, it’s all relative, but I simply could not get over the comfortable, modern feel of the resort, coupled with the beautiful view of the Red Rock Mountains from my chic room. And if you’re like me and have never stayed at Encore at Wynn Macau, it might just be the perfect reason to plan that trip to visit China (or all of Asia for that matter) that you’ve never been planning to do. After all, Steve Wynn himself calls it, “the loveliest hotel in the world”.
