Encore at Wynn Macau

Like its Las Vegas counterpart, Steve Wynn’s new Encore at Wynn Macau is a gilded all-suite adjunct to a larger Wynn hotel next door. Wynn Macau debuted in this gambling-crazed Chinese destination in 2006, and its follow-up underscores developer Wynn’s notorious attention to detail—from the giant aquarium behind the check-in counter (where 1,000 moon jellyfish move in an Impressionistic ballet) to the gold Grecian marble flooring to the imperial-yellow fabric wall coverings accented with Swarovski crystals.

The Encore tower’s 414 high-tech suites and villas feature such Chinese-inspired aspects as Macanese snacks in the minibar, Xi’an-style butterfly embroideries, and a red-and-gold color scheme that alludes to the prosperity guests hope to find downstairs. You can test your luck at one of the 24 baccarat tables in the hotel’s casino (blackjack and roulette tables will soon be added; poker is next door at the Wynn) and celebrate your winnings with a signature Yasmine cocktail or rare single-malt Scotch beneath an antique chandelier in Bar Cristal. To relax, try a massage at the eight-room Spa at Encore, or have the tea sommelier at Golden Flower restaurant steep you a rare Chinese blend. Encore at Wynn Macau, +853.2888.9966, www.wynnmacau.com
