Macau for family…absolutely! Macau is getting a facelift with fun-filled family hotels and activities galore for kids. Forget the airport hassle and jump on a ferry to this child-hopping, family popping wonderland. Read on for the scoop on Macau’s three new hotel beauties smack dab in the middle of the Cotai Strip!
This newly opened mega hotel is the largest of the chain and has the most adorable suites that keep you and your little rascals in mind. The Family Suite is perfect for a family of four or more - it has two bedrooms, including a spacious kids’ room equipped with a bunk bed and jam-packed with cuddly toys and kids’ sized furniture and accessories, as well as a Nintendo Wii. While you escape for a bit of pampering at Shine Spa or for a few hands of cards down at the casino, keep your kids busy with one of the many supervised kids’ programs that offer age-appropriate activities around the clock; or take your tots to the Comfyland Experience - a play area for toddlers - where you can play for hours on end.
For all the creature comforts of a five star hotel, but with amenities that also suit your little ones, check out the Conrad. Each room has ample living space, where they can set-up additional beds. In the large, apartment style suites, there is a plush sitting area and a separate karaoke room where you and the kids can sing along to your favourite Disney tunes. The Conrad also has its own separate pool (four lap pools, in fact) and a waterfall for the exclusive use of its hotel guests only. And if mom and dad need a break, be sure to book an ayurveda inspired treatment from Bodhi Spa. Conrad sets itself apart with all the little details, such as a choice between Shanghai Tang or Aromatherapy Associates toiletries, hand-made chocolate lollies upon arrival, ‘His’ and ‘Hers’ satin slippers, and don’t leave without the adorable rubber duckie and plush teddy bears as souvenirs.
In the USA, Holiday Inns are synonymous with budget-friendly holidays, but just like Macau isn’t your regular destination - this isn’t your regular Holiday Inn. Here, in the 1,200-room hotel, all rooms and suites look out onto the majestic Macau skyline and have state-of-the-art modern furnishings that cater to your every whim. Families will find ample space in one of the 75-meter suites, which have a living room where the kids can shack-up on the pull-out couch, and a spacious master bedroom where the parents’ can get a bit of shut-eye.
