(Wynn Hotel 600, Encore Tower 414)

(Last updated: September 23, 2017)





Large bold rooms decorated in gaudy red and other loud primary colors - you'll either love them or hate them!


Amazing amenities with two fantastic spas and gyms.


Sublime dining headlined by three restaurants awarded Michelin stars: Golden Flower (**), Wing Lei (*) and Mizumi (*).


Luxurious shopping quarter selling all the best the world and Europe have to offer.




Wynn Macau may have opened more than a decade ago on September 5, 2006, but it’s still the best hotel on the old Peninsula.  A true trailblazer, it was the first casino in Macau to provide guests with a real resort experience, offering superlative room, service, dining, and shopping options. 


After the 57 story Encore Tower debuted in 2010, Wynn Macau became the largest hotel on the Amizade Strip, surpassing the Lisboa in terms of room numbers 1014 to 972.



Just about the only thing that the Wynn doesn't get right is the casino.  Not only is game selection subpar but the floor is an absolute mess, with no central layout and mass gaming and VIP tables all mixed together.  A better idea is to gamble next door at MGM

Baccarat - Minimum bet is $2000.

Commission Free Baccarat
-  Minimum bet is $800.

EZ Baccarat - If you're going to play Baccarat in Macau, then EZ Baccarat offers the best odds, with a house edge of only 1.02% on the Banker bet.  All standard rules of Baccarat apply, except players don't pay the 5% commission on Banker wins and when the Banker wins on 3 card totals of 7, the win is reduced to a push.  Minimum bet is $800.

The game also features a Dragon 7 side bet that pays 40-1 if the Banker does indeed win with a three card point total of 7.  If counted properly, it results in a Player advantage, otherwise the house edge on the bet is an unseemly 7.61%.        

Blackjack - Lowest table I saw was for $500.  Since Aces can be split up to 4 hands, it's the best Blackjack in the city with a house edge of 0.09%.

Caribbean Stud Poker
- Payout on a Royal Flush is a lousy 50-1.  Minimum is $300.

Omaha Poker - Wynn is the only casino in town that offers Omaha poker.  Blinds are usually $50/$100, but there might not be a game on all the time.  It depends if they get find enough people to open a table.


Roulette - Minimum $50 Outside / $200 Inside bets.

Sic Bo - Big/Small minimum bet a very pricy $300.

Slot machines - Around 500 machines with minimums ranging from 2 cents to $10.  Live Gaming Baccarat is also available from $100, while Sic Bo is $20 and Roulette $10.  As for electronic games, they only offer Sic Bo for $30 and Roulette for $20.

Texas Hold Em - Perhaps the busiest poker room in Macau has blinds of $25/$50, $50/$100, $100/$200 and $300/$600.  Wynn doesn’t hold any poker tournaments, they're all cash games instead. 

Three Card Poker - Minimum bet of $300.



The Wynn's VIP program returns the following commission.




In terms of 5 star hotels outside of the Cotai Strip, it doesn't get any better than the Wynn.  The rooms are large and lavish, the grounds impeccable and the service staff exemplary.

It is, however, very expensive and almost always sold out on the weekend.  If you simply must stay there on Friday or Saturday night, your only hope is to call their reservation hotline at (853) 8986 9966. 

Here are their Sunday to Thursday rates, including all tax and service charges:


The small Wynn pool isn't going to cut it in the dog days of summer when the hotel is sold out.  I would have liked to have seen them put one on the top of the Encore Tower, that would have been something to behold.

The pool is open daily from 7 am to 8 pm.


The Wynn's 8 restaurants can be divided between fine dining and casual fare.

Fine dining:

Golden Flower - Golden Flower specializes in my favorite Chinese cuisine, Northeastern fare.  A 2 star Michelin eatery, an 8 course Classics Menu runs $2280 per person, while an 8 course Traditional Northern Style Menu is $1280.  Cold appetizers cost $80 to $270, while most soup and vegetables are $90 to $190.  Superior Delicacies run $430 to $2480, while seafood is $290 to $670 and meat and poultry $120 to $390.  For standard rice and noodle dishes, they’re a very economical $50 to $140. 

For a review of my dinner there, please click here: Golden Flower.

Golden Flower is closed on Mondays and only open for lunch on the weekend from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.  Evening hours are from from 6 pm to 10:30 pm, Tuesday to Sunday.


Encore Tower at Wynn Macau at nightRistorante Il Teatro - Accessible via the lobby, Ristorante Il Teatro deals in high class Italian dining.   Prices aren't out of this world either, with most selections under $300.  Specifically, appetizers are $150 to $230, pizza $140 to $200 and pasta $130 to $460.  The most expensive dishes are seafood ($330 to $550) and meat favourites ($400 to $670). 

For a review of my dinner there, please click here: Trip Report I.

Hours are 5:30 to 11:30 pm Tuesday to Sunday.

Mizumi - Mizumi overlooks the pool and is Wynn's Japanese eatery.  4 different sushi set meals run between $1000 and $1490, while individual orders of sushi (2 pieces) and sashimi (3 pieces) are between $90 and $690.  Appetisers and salads cost between $80 and $590, while soup is $130 to $190 and rice and noodle dishes $70 to $590.  For more premium fare, tempura costs $280 to $430, while seafood is $120 to $370 and meat $710 to $2980.

Take care in the clothing department as the dress code prohibits patrons from wearing shorts.  They will however lend you a pair of trousers if you need them.  I don't know about you but wearing other people's pants just really isn't my thing.  For larger groups, 2 private dining areas are also available, each seating 8 people. 

Mizumi is only open evenings from 5:30 pm to 11:30 pm Wednesday to Monday.

Wing Lei - Wynn's signature restaurant is Wing Lei, a one star Michelin eatery.  Serving food in Cantonese style, a 6 course evening set meal is $1200, or $1680 with wine, while most selections on their a la carte menu are between $100 and $300.  Specifically, appetizers are $60 to $160, soup $80 to $400 and rice, noodles and vegetables $140 to $280.  Seafood and meat are between $180 and $320 while delicacies like bird’s nest, abalone and shark’s fin run $400 to $1980.

I tried the evening set meal there about a year ago.  Here’s a review of how it went: Wing Lei.

Wing Lei is open from 11:30 am to 3 pm Mondays to Saturdays and from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm on Sundays and public holidays.  Dinner everyday is from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm at night.     

Casual dining:

Cafe Encore
- Cafe Encore’s menu is a mix of East and West headlined by pricy Cantonese specialities like bird’s nest ($770), dried seafood ($240 to $1830) and shark’s fin ($880 to $1040).  Simpler Chinese fare is also available, such as soup ($120 to $230), seafood ($140 to $460), meat ($140 to $490), vegetables ($120 to $140) and rice and noodles ($100 to $580).  As for Western selections, most choices stay between $100 and $200, and include soup ($90), salad ($60 to $100), sandwiches ($110 to $220), pasta ($160 to $190) and seafood ($190 to $240).  Portuguese and Macanese favourites are also available for between $80 to $230. 

Cafe Encore is located in the hallway that bridges the Wynn and Encore casinos.  It keeps hours from 6:30 am to 3 am daily. 

Cafe Esplanada - Overlooking the Wynn pool, Cafe Esplanada serves both Western and Asian fare, with soup and salad $100 to $140 while Western favourites are $170 to $200 and steaks $440 to $460.  Macanese and Portuguese specialities run $100 to $230 while their Korean and Asian counterparts are $130 to $260.  Simple noodle and rice dishes are $100 to $130 while dim sum is $60 to $70.   

They also have a breakfast buffet daily with prices $210/$98 for adults and children, while Friday and Saturday dinner buffet is $388/$148.

Red 8 - Red 8 serves fast food type fare such as soup ($80), cold appetizers ($60 to $130), vegetables ($90 to $100) and dim sum ($40 to $60).   Other selections include hot dishes ($130 to $800), rice ($120) and noodles ($80 to $190).  Red 8 is located in the heart of the casino floor and stays open 24 hours.

99 Noodles - 99 Noodles is located in the Encore casino, and is open from 10 am to 2 am daily.  The Wynn’s cheapest eatery, dim sum is between $40 and $90, soup $50, and vegetables $60 to $80.  Main course options include barbecue ($100 to $170), Chef’s Recommendations ($90 to $450) and rice favourites ($80 to $120), along with a lot of different noodle combinations ($60 to $130).


Wynn Macau shopping arcadeThe Wynn was the first casino hotel in Macau to focus on the shopping side of the resort experience, and every other mega resort that's opened since has followed suit.  Featuring around 25 high end shops, the Wynn's shopping arcade is home to fashion giants Gucci, Chanel, Prada, LV etc.  If you're looking for overhyped European goods, the Wynn has you covered.   




The Wynn has two spas, one located in the main Wynn hotel and the other in the Encore Tower.


The Wynn spa used to be free for hotel guests but to use but now everyone has to pay to get in, with the door pass $368.  Macau is the eighth most expensive city in the world in terms of hotel prices, averaging $1600 Hong Kong dollars a night, and yet their five star hotels seem to think use of their saunas and steam rooms should require even more money.  Hats off to the Sands, Grand Lapa, Four Seasons, Landmark and Ritz-Carlton, the only five hotels with casinos that still let guests into their spas for free.  


Treatments at the Wynn spa include massage ($980/60 mins, $1380/90 mins), facials ($1200 to $2200), body treatments ($1000 to $2500) and a couple of Wynn Journeys ($2500/$4800).  The latter lasts 3 hours and is designed for couples.


Service at the Encore spa is limited to treatments only, and appointments need to be made in advance.  60 minute massage runs a pricy $1000, while 90 minutes is $1500.  Other treatments include facials and body work with prices similar to the Wynn spa. 

The Wynn spa is located on the 1st floor of the main Wynn hotel while the Encore spa is located on the 1st floor in Encore Tower.  The spa hours are the same, from 6 am to 10:30 pm daily.


The only entertainment at the Wynn worth mentioning is the water show that happens out front everyday from about 1 pm.  The best time to see it is at night, when fire gets added to the mix.

The best 5 star hotel on the old Macau peninsula, the Wynn is home to outstanding facilities, tremendous dining, and large, lavish rooms.  If you're paying more than $1800 a night for a hotel room in this part of town, then you should be staying at the Wynn, end of story.   



The Wynn has a tremendous location, right between the Lisboa and MGM on the Western end of the Amizade strip.
