The Banyan Tree Macau Opens, Boasts Private Pools Inside the Rooms
Avenida Marginal Flor de Lotus, Taipa
And this is one of the lowest category rooms
In case there was any doubt about Macau being a huge hotel hot spot, a new five-star Banyan Tree has just opened in a massive complex which will also eventually be joined by the Hotel Okura Macau. It's part of the Galaxy Macau complex, but that doesn't mean it's going to be all giant, corporate hotel or anything. We're talking Banyan Tree here, which means all rooms (246 of them) are suites, some with private indoor "relaxation pools," the hotel isn't calling itself a hotel, but a "resort."
Macau's high-class casinos regularly bring in more moolah than Las Vegas these days, and it only makes sense that the accommodations on the peninsula rival (or bet) those in Sin City. If Caesar's can have entire high roller villas, then so can the Banyan Tree Macau, and indeed they do. Said villas are expansive, with entire private pools, spa treatment rooms, entertainment dens...everything a deep-pocketed gambler needs to feel comfy cozy enough to stay on dropping loot.
For those who enjoy putting a bill into a machine here and there and maybe just want to get away, the Banyan Tree is offering a pretty sweet debut deal. The Summer Double Fun package starts at 2,188 MOP (Macau Patacas, which equals about $272) per night, and includes discounts on spa treatments and gifts at the resort store, plus two First Class tickets to Hong Kong on the jet catamaran ferry.
