WYNN MACAU INTRODUCTION

Wynn Macau may have opened more almost 20 years ago on September 5, 2006, but it’s still the swankiest hotel on the old Peninsula.  A true trailblazer, it was the first casino in town to provide guests with a fully integrated resort experience similar to Vegas, pairing large luxurious rooms with out of this world service and first class shopping and dining options.

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

WYNN MACAU CASINO GAMES

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 that leaves me dazed and disoriented every time I’m in it.

It’s really only notable for its Poker Room, generally regarded as the best in town.

Baccarat – Didn’t see any Baccarat anywhere.  I’m guessing minimums start from $5000 in VIP.

Commission Free Baccarat –  Saw one table with a minimum bet is $500.  The vast majority of them are $800 and up.

Blackjack – Lowest table I saw was for $300, in the Lakeside casino.  Aces can no longer be split up to 4 hands, making the house edge 0.15%.

Caribbean Stud Poker – They call it Wynn Stud Poker, but it’s the same as traditional Caribbean Stud Poker.  Minimum bet is $300.

Omaha Poker – The Venetian and Wynn are the only casinos in town that offers Omaha poker.  Blinds and buy ins are listed below.

There probably won’t be a game on all the time.  It all comes down to whether enough people want to play it.

Roulette – Inside/Outside minimums of $50 and $200.

Sic Bo – Big/Small minimum bet is only $100 in the Lakeside casino.

Slot machines – Around 400 machines with minimums ranging from 10 cents to $10.  Live Gaming Baccarat is also available for $50 and $100, while electronic games consist of Baccarat ($50), Blackjack ($30), Roulette ($20), and Sic Bo ($20).  The $30 Blackjack is the lowest BJ limit in Macau.

Texas Hold Em – Perhaps the busiest poker room in Macau has games from $25/$50 all the way up to $5000/$10,000.  The blinds, buy ins and rake caps are as follows:

Wynn doesn’t hold any poker tournaments, they’re all cash games instead.

Three Card Baccarat – Minimum bet of $300.

WYNN MACAU VIP GAMING

For the first time in 10 years, the Wynn has new figures for their VIP program.

If you roll $2,500,000 you can get a room credit of $8,000, which you might be able to use to get 4 free nights in the hotel.

WYNN MACAU HOTEL

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.

Wynn Macau lobby

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:

While it’s nowhere near as comprehensive as the Lisboa or Grand Lisboa, the lobby does have a few impressive pieces of art.

WYNN MACAU HOTEL ROOM

On February 26th, 2020, I stayed in a Deluxe King room at Wynn Macau for $1915, all tax and service charges including. It was the final hotel on my 2020 Coronavirus Tour, and the one I was looking forward to the most. The best living option on the old Peninsula, it had been on my bucket list for over a decade, and I couldn’t wait to see if the hype actually met the hysteria.

I was all ready to get my mind blown with some big, bold, bodacious colour scheme, but received a very neutral cream coloured room instead.

Wynn Macau Deluxe King room

Sufficiently large at 56 square meters, it was very easy on the eyes, showing no signs of being almost 15 years old.

Wynn Macau Deluxe King bed

Being the Wynn, they never shortchange anyone with subpar furniture and fixtures, and as such, the bed, tables, chairs, lamps and desk were all in immaculate condition.

Wynn Macau Deluxe King desk

The sofa was so nice that I would have stolen it if it fit into my suitcase, so settled on lifting a single towel instead.

Wynn Macau Deluxe King sofa

Just like all of the newer hotels coming out today, the lights, AC, TV, music, drapes, and shades were all controlled via a central iPad, and you could even chart the process of your bill on the TV screen. The unexpected cherry on top was the Bose sound system next to the bed, which was seemingly made for Apple products.

Wynn Macau Bose Speaker

I just connected it physically to the port and was grooving to Coltrane, Monk and David August’s epic Boiler Room set from 2015 set in no time.

TV channels added up to 51 and there were a number of movies that could be purchased on demand, with standard ones $135 and porn $150.  There were also a few 24 hour skin flick packages that ran $270 apiece, which I believe alternate between showing two films. As always, both Asian and Western were available.

The mini bar was locked and loaded with so much stuff that I could have survived a week in the room without needing to order anything else. Unfortunately none of it was free outside of water, coffee and tea, which they might want to address. At night I was given two free pieces of chocolate, but was flat out refused fruit or anything else. Apparently, they’ll only give an apple or an orange if you’re in a suite.

Wynn Macau Deluxe King bathroom

Like the mini bar the bathroom toiletries were stacked and packed with an assortment of things, like soap, shampoo, conditioner, body gel, shaving kit etc, and even some dental floss. According to the Wynn website, there was also an in wall HD TV in there somewhere, but I didn’t notice it at all.

The view faced out into the city and was nothing to write home about, unless you like looking at Starworld, L’Arc, and the Encore Tower.

Starworld Macau L'Arc Macau and Encore Tower

MGM didn’t look half bad during the daytime either.

The outdoor pools down on the ground floor were also in full view too.

My biggest gripe with the stay was that I wasn’t given a lick of an upgrade anywhere, even though the hotel was 90% empty and all of their facilities closed. Perhaps they didn’t appreciate that I booked the room through C Trip instead of their website, which the front desk girl made sure to point out at check in. Perhaps if I had done that instead, she would have treated me a lot better, I don’t know.

Then again, Wynn has the very well earned reputation of being elite snob elitists so anyone booking their cheap Deluxe Room quite possibly never gets a GD thing.

Still though, the Wynn Room is an oasis of comfort in a resort that’s overflowing in it. I don’t normally believe in Feng Shui but there was some sweet synergy going on inside it, the simple stately elegance that Wynn Resorts is known for on full display everywhere.

$1900 is a lot of money to drop for a place to stay, but if you want the best, at least you know where to find it. And if you go up a couple of grades to something better, that’s when vortexes open, universes collide and you start questioning everything in your life up to that point.  Absolutely drenched and dripping in all the glitz and gaud of Vegas, the huge Encore Tower suites bleed bodacious bold reds and blacks everywhere; the views outside of Taipa and Macau Tower just as killer. Running about $4000 a night, that’s too much for a poor old Maven like me to even consider these days, but hopefully the future still has a long way to go.

WYNN MACAU POOL

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 7:00 am to 8:00 pm.

WYNN MACAU DINING

The Wynn’s 10 restaurants can be divided between fine dining and casual fare.

Fine dining:

Golden Flower – Golden Flower specializes in my favorite Chinese cuisine, Northeastern fare.  They had received 2 Michelin stars for about a decade before losing them all sometime during Covid.  I’d wager it’s because their head chef, the venerable Luo Guo Zhu, either retired or left.

I’m not sure how good the new iteration is, but the prices sure are similar.  Appetizers cost $88 to $688, while soups and vegetables are $98 to $268.  Superior Delicacies run $428 to $888, while seafood is $398 to $1288 and meat and poultry $138 to $888.  For most standard rice and noodle dishes, they’re a very economical $98 to $198, while desserts are $68 to $98.

A pricey 10 course set menu is the last thing available, running $2,888.

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

Golden Flower is closed on Tuesdays and only open at night from 6:00 pm to 10:30 pm.

Ristorante 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 $220, pizza $150 to $190 and pasta $210 to $340.  Vegetables only cost $100 to $240, while soup is $120 or $140, and anti pasta platters $420 or $840.

The most expensive dishes are seafood ($330 to $520), two seafood platters ($1100/$2200) and meat favourites like lamb and steak ($400 to $1380).

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

The restaurant is currently closed as it’s undergoing refurbishments.

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

Mizumi – Mizumi overlooks the pool and is Wynn’s Japanese eatery.  They’ve appeared to have ditched their a la carte menu and are now going exclusively with sets.  A Kaiseki menu runs $1,888 or $2,388, while an Omakase Sushi offering is $2,788 and a Teppanyaki experience $2,788.

Will you be full after you leave?  I seriously doubt it!

If their a la carte still remains, appetizers and salads used to cost between $80 and $180, while soup was $60 to $140 and rice and noodle dishes $70 to $380.  Individual orders of sushi (2 pieces) and sashimi (3 pieces) were between $90 and $690.

For more premium fare, tempura cran $120 to $430, while teppanyaki was $190 to $990 and grilled meat $90 to $380.

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 open in the evenings from 5:30 pm to 11:30 pm Thursday to Wednesday.  On weekends, they also open for lunch from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

Wing Lei – Wynn’s signature restaurant is Wing Lei, a two star Michelin eatery.  Serving food in Cantonese style, a 6 course tasting menu runs $1,888 per person, with an additional $600 for wine pairing, or $260 with tea.

As for a la carte, appetizers are $88 to $188, soup $88 to $2808 and barbecued specialties $208 to $828.  Seafood and meat favourites run between $218 and $1208, while Chef Chan Tak Kwong’s signature dishes are $268 to $1,088, and delicacies like bird’s nest, abalone and shark’s fin $388 to $10888.

In case you can’t drop 10 big ones on a dish, other more reasonable options include rice and noodles ($188 to $238), poultry ($168 to $428) and vegetables ($168 to $208).

At lunch, dim sum runs between $62 and $138.

I tried the evening set meal there about a decade ago.  Let’s just say it didn’t go well and I’ve never been back.  For details, please check the review out here: 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 standard Asian dishes like noodles ($88 to $168), rice ($108 to $188), baked rice and spaghetti ($118 to $128) and special dishes ($88 to $168).

It seems they have expanded their Macanese menu recently, and it’s fairly comprehensive, featuring appetizers ($108 to $198),  soups ($68 to $88) and small side dishes ($28 to $88).  Mains number 12 and include classic local dishes like minchi, crab curry, roasted bacalhau, African chicken and seafood rice for $138 to $688.

Cafe Encore is located in the hallway that bridges the Wynn and Encore casinos.  It keeps hours from 7:00 am to 10:30 am daily.

Cafe Esplanada – Overlooking the Wynn pool, Cafe Esplanada serves both Western and Asian fare, with soups and salads $88 to $158, sandwiches $158 to $228 and Western favourites $168 to $428.  Regional Asian specialties run $148 to $298, while simple noodle and rice dishes are $118 to $198 and dim sum $68 to $78.

A trio of dinner sets run $298 (2 courses), $338 (3 courses) and $398 (4 courses).  Mediterranean salad, salmon fillet, spring chicken and premium Black Angus sirloin are among the selections on the menu.

A daily breakfast buffet daily costs $268/$138 for adults and children, while a Friday to Sunday dinner buffet is $498/$188.  Afternoon tea is also available for $330 for 2 people, while it’s $508 if you prefer champagne instead.  (And who doesn’t???)

Cafe Esplanada is open daily from 7:00 am to 10:30 pm.

Red 8 – Red 8 serves a mix of Cantonese, Northern Chinese and Chaozhou dishes, which they call Chui Chow.  Prices are a touch high, with appetizers $68 to $98, soup and congee $18 to $208, dim sum between $48 and $88, and noodles $68 to $148.  Main course options include Chef’s Recommendations ($98 to $628), Chui Chow favorites ($28 to $368), barbecue specialties ($88 to $388) and rice dishes ($68 to $148).  For vegetarians, they offer 6 different choices for $48 to $98.

Red 8 is located in the heart of the casino floor and stays open 24 hours.

99 Noodles – The Wynn’s cheapest eatery, 99 Noodles serves fast food type fare such as soup ($89 to $169), rice ($89 to $289), stir fried ($89 to $239) cold dishes ($59 to $129), and seafood ($119 to $789).

99 Noodles is located in the Encore casino, and is open 24 hours.

Tekka – Ramen joint with an open kitchen located inside the casino.  Small menu as you’d expect, serving just ramen ($128 to $158), yakitori ($38 to $168), rice ($88 to $138), and seafood and vegetables ($38 to $78).

Tekka keeps hours daily from noon to 2 am.

Lakeside Trattoria – With Il Treato currently closed, Lakeside Trattoria is picking up the slack in the Italian dining department.  It may be listed as a casual restaurant, but the prices don’t match, with appetizers $88 to $248, pasta $178 to $268 and main meats like steak, veal and chicken $248 to $588.  Seafood is more appropriately priced $218 to $288 while pizzas stay in the $148 to $198 range.

Lakeside Trattoria has tables viewing Nam Van Lake and keeps hours daily from 12:00 pm to 2:30 pm, and from 6:00 pm to 10:30 pm at night.  It’s closed on Mondays.

WYNN MACAU SHOPPING

The 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 over hyped and overpriced European goods, the Wynn has you covered.

WYNN MACAU SPA

Well, I’m pretty sure we’ve found Macau’s two best spas, and here’s how we know they are.  Due to massive demand, only those staying at the Wynn are now allowed to book treatments.  Of course, prior to Covid, anyone could just walk in, but those days are done.

Let that sink in for a minute.  While every other spa in town is begging for business, the Wynn is turning people away.

The only downside about it is that use of the spa facilities for hotel guests requires an additional $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.  That’s pretty unacceptable, in my opinion.

Treatments at the Wynn Spa include massage ($980/60 mins, $1300/90 mins), facials ($980 to $1500), and a couple of Wynn Journeys (2 hours: $1800/2.5 hours: $2200).  There’s also a 3 hour Couple Bliss package that costs $4800.

The Wynn Spa is located on the 1st floor of the main Wynn hotel and keeps hours daily from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.

Service at the Encore Spa is limited to treatments only, and appointments need to be made in advance.  They have a larger menu than the Wynn Spa, with procedures that include 60 or 90 minute massage ($1000/$1500), facials ($600 to $2200) and 2 to 3 hour Signature Journeys ($2200 to $3600).  Manicure and pedicure services are also available for $350 and $500.

The Encore Spa is located on the 1st floor in Encore Tower.  Hours daily are from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm.

WYNN MACAU BARS

The Wynn Macau has three bars that never have anyone in them: Cinnebar, Bar Cristal and the Wynn Lei Lounge.

Wynn Macau Cinnebar

Given that they’re ghost towns most of the time, I’m not going to bother sharing the prices with you.  If you simply must know them though, they’re listed on the Wynn Macau website.

WYNN MACAU ENTERTAINMENT

The only entertainment at the Wynn worth mentioning is the water show that happens out front everyday from about 1 pm.

Wynn Macau water show

The best time to see it is at night, when fire gets added to the mix.

Wynn Macau night watershow

Don’t bother wasting your time waiting for the free Dragon of Fortune and Tree of Prosperity shows though.

Wynn Macau Tree of Prosperity

Both are so lame that I included them on list of Overrated Attractions.

They even have the gall to call the Moon Jelly Aquarium entertainment, which just goes to show how hard up they are.

Wynn Macau Moon Jelly Aquarium

I mean, that’s entertainment???

THE LAST WORD

The best 5 star hotel on the old Macau peninsula, the Wynn is home to outstanding facilities, tremendous dining, and large, luxurious rooms.  If you’re paying more than $1600 a night for a hotel room in this part of town, then you should be staying at the Wynn, end of story.

The much ballyhooed casino though is a different story, and unless you’re a Poker player, just ignore it completely.  The promotions are a joke, desk staff is unhelpful, and security guards are fake tough guys who wouldn’t last a minute out on the street.

I guess you can say I’m still not over getting back roomed there in 2015 for looking at a Sic Bo table the wrong way. 

WYNN MACAU LOCATION

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

I understand your grudge against their casino. I have weird stories of this casino myself. But there’s just no denying that this IS still the best luxury resort on Macau island. They are celebrating it’s 17th anniversary, but the place still is in mint condition. Very well-kept. And I’ve just been to Wynn Las Vegas and Belagio. Those properties look tired and worn, compare to Wynn Macau. Their casino is still one of my favorite. It’s very clean, bright, luxurious, nice leather furniture, free drinks. And most importantly ,they don’t allow back-betting or prowlers to bother players. The place is… Read more »
