Mice Asia Net : October 2009
miceAsia.net 25 macau Macau Government Tourist Office Lvl 11, 99 Bathurst Street Sydney NSW 2000 T: 02 92641488 www.macautourism.gov.mo Its sister venue in the City Of Dreams, the Hard Rock Hotel, has a different take on staff. This place is cool -- rock star cool -- right down to the concierges who, it must be said, probably aren't discouraged from getting multiple facial piercings. They are, after all, in keeping with the style of the property. Crown has another property in another part of Macau that has been renamed Altira Macau. For anybody considering Macau for an upcoming meeting or incentive I do urge you to visit this place. It has a bar and outdoor area with spectacular views of Macau that I'm told is a popular place for anybody who is trying to score a few brownie points -- especially with a potential new suitor. This is just one more venue in an ever-growing list of resorts, casinos and hotels that will position Macau as a great alternative to larger Asian destinations including Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. It doesn't offer the beaches or the sprawling markets or nightlife of many other Asian cities, but it does have a certain something that sets it apart. The casinos for one thing are impressive. Some are big and others more intimate. There is no doubt that there is at least one for every group and probably more. And if the casinos don't appeal then the food most definitely will. It's tasty, plentiful, and I'm told reasonably priced whether you eat within a hotel or in a more traditional establishment.
