Wynn Resorts opens $4.2B resort in Cotai, Macau

The resort has 1,706 rooms, suites and villas with personal touches overseen by Steve Wynn himself.

Wynn Resorts opened Wynn Palace in Cotai, Macau.

Among the highlights of the resort is the eight-acre Performance Lake and fountain show, employing 1,195 water jets shooting 8 million gallons of water into the air in more than a dozen choreographed musical fountain shows. The fountain shows may be viewed via a ride in air-conditioned Sky Cabs that travel more than 90 feet above the Performance Lake.

Floral themes play a major role in the resort. There are two floral sculptures located in the South and North Lobby Atriums. Each sculpture, one of a carousel and the other a Ferris wheel, were fabricated from more than 100,000 real flowers each. The sculptures were custom designed by floral designer Preston Bailey.

Also on display throughout Wynn Palace are works of art, assembled over a six-year period and representing an investment in excess of $125 million. Many of the pieces continue Steve Wynn's efforts to bring Chinese artwork home, including a quartet of rare porcelain Qing dynasty vases. The only other such quartet is in Buckingham Palace in London.

The property’s fine-dining and casual restaurants include the Wing Lei Palace, designed by Wynn Resorts' design chief Roger Thomas. The adjacent Wing Lei Bar has an 18-century crystal chandelier valued at more than $25 million. Meanwhile, SW Steakhouse has a custom-built stage for performances.

The resort has 1,706 rooms, suites and villas with personal touches overseen by Steve Wynn himself. Its spa is the largest in Macau and has 22 treatment rooms. The resort's pool and poolside restaurant overlook the Performance Lake. 

The Wynn Palace Esplanade is home to more than 50 names in retail.
