Hotel Buzz: Newly Opened Conrad Macao at Cotai Central

Conrad Maco at Cotai Central

There's been lots of press about the brand new Conrad in New York City, but this spring also saw the opening of the world's biggest Conrad Hotel, located in Macao (or Macau)-- the island gaming enclave (and former Portuguese colony) that’s a ferry ride from Hong Kong. In this Chinese hot spot, gambling revenues have actually far surpassed those of Las Vegas. The Conrad Macao is located inside the Sands Cotai Central- a veritable resort city on the Cotai Strip with gambling, dining and duty-free shopping galore. Entertainment isn't too shabby with A-list performers hitting the stage at the Venetian Theatre and the 15,000-seat CotaiArena.

The Conrad Macao, Cotai Central has a whopping 636 guest rooms and 206 suites spaced over 39 floors. At the helm is General Manager Troy Hickox, who has 18 years of international hotel management for brands like The Peninsula Hotels, Fairmont, and Four Seasons. The hotel is home to the largest club lounge in the city: a SkyLounge with a wall of 27” iMacs, a swank bar, copious snacks, and views. There’s also four F&B outlets, and the signature Bodhi Spa with whirlpool, sauna and steam room. For more information, visit www.conradmacao.com.
