Wynn Palace Resort in Macau celebrates opening with magnificent fountain show

The long-anticipated opening of Wynn Palace took place this week in the vibrant strip of Cotai in Macau, China, following six years of development. The floral-themed resort was designed by Steve Wynn and showcase some unique facilities in one of the world’s up-and-coming tourist and entertainment destinations.

The opening ceremony was attended by Chief Executive of the Macau Special Administrative Region, Mr. Chui Sai On, and Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Wynn Resorts, Mr. Steve Wynn, plus many more tourism officials. The opening event included an impressive fountain show at the Performance Lake with hundreds of water jets that were choreographed to the resort’s signature song, "Elegance". Steve Wynn during the opening commented:

"Wynn Palace is arguably the most beautiful hotel in the world, which is a wonderful thing to be able to say. But it is not in London, Paris, New York or Rome. It is in Cotai, in Macau, and sits here for all the world to come and see. It's our gift to the community, to the public. It will be here forever and it's perhaps unlikely we'll see a place of this scope and artfulness in our lifetimes again."

The luxury resort has 1,706 guest rooms and suites in a variety of categories including the Palace Room, Fountain Suite, Parlour Suite, and Garden Villa. The accommodation features luxury decor and floor-to-ceiling-windows, as well as custom-made beds, huge 65-inch TVs, work desks, minibars, Italian marble bathrooms, Bang and Olufsen music systems, and bedside touch-screen consoles that operate the blinds, TV, music, and lights.

Throughout the resort, there are thousands of pieces of artwork on display including rare porcelain Qing-dynasty vases. The floral theme can be seen in all areas of the complex, and two huge floral sculptures stand in the South and North Lobby Atriums. Made out of 100,000 real flowers by Preston Bailey, one sculpture is of a carousel and the other a Ferris Wheel that moves in time to music.

In addittion, facilities at the resort include a huge swimming pool surrounded by manicured gardens; a modern fitness centre with personal trainers; a beauty salon with hair stylists, colourists, and manicurists; and a lavish spa with 22 treatment rooms, water therapy zone, steam room, whirlpools, and a sauna. The Wynn Esplanade spans 200,000 square feet and boasts a variety of shops with more than 50 designer names including Gucci, Chanel, Hermes, Cartier, and Prada.

Dining options as Wynn Palace blend Eastern and Western Cuisine and include a range of fine dining and casual venues. Guests can savour fresh sushi at Mizumi, delicious beef at SW Steakhouse, or local noodles at Hanami Rame. The Wing Lei Bar is the perfect place to relax with cocktails or sample 50 varieties of tea under a glistening 18th-century French chandelier.

For entertainment, the eight-acre Performance Lake will have regular fountain shows with 1,195 water jets that will perform to Chinese, European and American songs, as well as opera and famous musical tunes. Guests can reach the lake via the air-conditioned Sky Cabs that travel 90 feet above the resort and spurting water jets.
