I spent a night at the newly opened Four Seasons Macao Hotel last week and was delighted with my stay. Although my suite was smaller than the suites at the Venetian, it had all the amenities and trappings a guest could want for a luxe weekend away from home.
It was nice to be received at the ferry terminal and to be warmly greeted by everyone, from the doorman to staff I met along the corridors enroute to the hotel's shopping arcade - upmarket branded shops and a big cosmetics emporium - all run by DFS, and the Plaza Casino - modestly sized (about one fifth?) in relation to the Venetian. The Cotai membership card can be used to chalk up points here as Four Seasons is owned by the same people that run the Venetian and the Sands Casino opposite Fisherman's Wharf. I liked the Four Seasons Plaza Casino's ambience - unlike the cavernous Venetian Casino catering to the masses which is very smokey and rowdy.
Ping Restaurant at the corner of Plaza Casino serves exquisite dim sum amidst pleasant surroundings. Non-hotel F&B options at the Four Seasons Hotel/Four Seasons Shoppes are currently limited to an illy Cafe and a Moet champagne bar. It took me about 10 minutes via the second floor of the hotel's shopping arcade to walk to the Venetian which has a much wider range of dining options to suit all pockets and tastes.
In short, if you've covered all the sightseeing on previous trips and are revisiting Macau for one or two days, you'll do fine trying your luck at the Venetian's tables/slots and shopping or dining at their Grand Canal Shoppes, but stay at the Four Seasons where you can truly wind down, relax and be pampered after all the walking, gaming and shopping. It is either Wynn or the Four Seasons if you would like to be close to the casino action, yet stay in a new, five star property that also boasts impeccable five stars service standards. (There are other five stars hotels in Macau that are either old and tied, or whose service standards do not deserve five stars rating.)
