Banyan Tree Macau

Amid the spectacle and dazzle of the 2,200-room, $1.9 billion Galaxy Macau’s grand opening in September, an exclusive enclave debuted discreetly in the megaresort development’s South Tower. The 256-room Banyan Tree Macau features its own private drive-up entrance and a 21-treatment-room spa that guests enter through a living bamboo forest where the sun beams in through a skylight and reflects in courtyard pools. Guest rooms are havens of their own, with all 227 suites featuring in-room plunge pools located where you might ordinarily find window seats. Several of the resort’s 29 villas have full-size swimming pools and private gardens; the second-floor Sanctuary Pool Villa has 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space. Guests who wish to leave the sanctuary of the hotel can explore the adjacent Galaxy Sky Wave Pool, where mechanically engineered waves crash onto a white sand beach, and the Galaxy’s gaming facility, one of the world’s largest.
