Sheraton Cotai Macau Experience
There are plenty of choices when it comes to hotels in Macau. As the biggest gambling city in the world, Macau is a fast pace growing city. Hotels with gambling facilities and enterntainment are mushrooming in parts of Macau and at the new Cotai island. Cotai has gone through huge transformation with land reclaimation as well as the birth of the Cotai Strip. The Cotai Strip is the baby project of Sands Las Vegas mimicking ‘The Strip’ of Vegas.
Sheraton Cotai is part of the Las Vegas Sands group together with Holiday Inn and Conrad. Built on top of a huge entertainment complex, you will never get bored with shopping and dining with dozens of branded outlets and restaurants available other than the casino.
I have never been to Cotai before as I stayed on the main island during my previous trip so visiting this part of Macau is new experience for me. At first glance, the beautiful design and decor of the shopping complex has similarity with Marina Bay Sands Singapore. Thus, it is smartly design with natural lights as well as man-made waterfalls and fountains. I am pretty sure these are associated with feng shui as feng shui is believed to bring luck and wealth.
The lobby is enormous and there are plenty of spaces for registration. They are prepared for the massive crowd especially the bus load of tourists and so you do not worry about the waiting time to get your room’s key as the hotel staffs are well trained and efficient.
Like other Sheraton and Starwood hotels, Sheraton Cotai sparkles in the terms of theme of the design and the facilities of the hotel.
The room looks clean and bright and you definitely will not complain of the size of it. The room comes with a king size bed, pillow preferences option, LCD TV, working desk and a reading sofa.
I spend the night time scrolling the TV channels and I love the fact in Macau, they have a lifestyle tourism channel. The channel is a repeated programmed with ads hosted by the two brothers who made fame in Amazing Race Asia. There are quite a few good recommendations on that channel and you might want to look at it.
The bathroom comes with stand-alone standing shower and a bath tub. The design and the selection of tiles make the bathroom looks clean and sleek. It comes with the amenities and all the necessary towels. Every evening after going out for the whole day, I will usually soak in the bathtub. This is my ritual wherever I travelled but of course only when the bathroom comes with the bathtub.
How about the view from my room? The view of my room is magnificent as it is overlooking the Cotai Strip. I can spot some of the Venetian Hotel, City of Dreams, Hard Rock Hotel Macau and Crown Macau.
I stayed a few nights in Sheraton Cotai and I do enjoy my stay. The hotel is linked to Venetian and there are many retail outlets available in the shopping complex. Just remember to bring your Starwood card if you are a SPG member to redeem your privileges. For the cheapest rates of Sheraton Macau, book with Agoda.com
