The New Mandarin Oriental Macau is Now Open, but You Can't Gamble There
Going to gamble or eat a Portuguese egg tart in Macau anytime soon? Perhaps you should swing by the new jewel on the waterfront, the just-opened Mandarin Oriental Macau. With 213 rooms and suites in the hotel, this hotel in the Las Vegas of the East is ready to give others a run for their money.
In particular, this baby sits very very close to the Wynn Macau, which we visited early last year. At the time we also passed by the only Mandarin Oriental Macau at the time, which is now simply the "old one." The new tower has souped up hotel technology, beyond awesome views over the water and to Macau's space needle, and an spa and pool to make up for the fact that this hotel is one of Macau's only non-gaming properties.

What we're probably most excited for however is the Mandarin Oriental Cake Shop. There's nothing more than a hint about the existence of this, so we guess we'll just have to hop the hydrofoil from Hong Kong to Macau next time we're in the neighborhood to check it out ourselves.
Nights at this new Mandarin Oriental Macau start around $280 and run as high as $700 for the Panorama Suite. Keep in mind that these are "promotional opening rates" for the summer/fall season, so get on it!
