Designed to meld into its surroundings, it blends sleek contemporary lines with traditional Chinese decor in a series of interlacing terraces and gardens overlooking the bay and port.

With its many parks, Macau is considered one of the gardens of Asia. It's easy to get away from urban pressures, even in the heart of the city. Between the romantic Camões Garden and its grotto and the superb Flora Garden found at the bottom of the Guia Hill, we're spoilt for choice. One of the most gorgeous spots remains the Lou Lim Ieoc Garden, designed at the end of the 19th century and which today provides splendid miniature landscapes including bamboo forests and small lakes.
