Altira Macau

Dec 21, 2009

Situated on Taipa, the hotel offers spectacular vistas of Macau’s surreal skyline. Perhaps more importantly, it’s within walking distance of a handful of neighborhood restaurants so guests can get a taste of Macau’s other side.

Unlike at other Macau properties, understated elegance prevails here; but don’t expect stark minimalism. Renowned L.A.-based designer Peter Remédios, the talent behind the Four Seasons New York and The Landmark Oriental, uses a palette of off-whites, golds and brown to create a sophisticated look. Miniature bamboo gardens hint at the hotel’s Asian locale, while modern art give the public areas a contemporary touch. He also wisely lets the views do the work: glass-to-ceiling windows in the lobby on the 38th floor and guest rooms afford panoramic views of the city.
