Where else would you find the world’s largest St. Regis hotel than in bigger-is-better Macau? Upping the ante with 400 rooms, the year-old property nonetheless exudes the refined opulence for which the brand is known, and is downright diminutive compared to its Cotai Strip neighbor, the 4,001-room Sheraton Grand Macao. Guest quarters are sumptuously appointed with Chinese accents such as brushed-gold lacquer and mother-of-pearl artwork offsetting a palette of ivory and turquoise; they also all come with 24-hour butler service, a first for the city. The gorgeous Iridium Spa on the 38th floor is among the best in town—signature therapies revolve around gemstone infused massage oils—while The Manor, which comprises five dining rooms and a wine room, is a destination in its own right, dishing up everything from robata-grilled Miyazaki wagyu to seared Hokkaido scallops with black-pig lardo and smoked chili butter. Be sure to end at least one evening in the St. Regis Bar, another beautifully designed space with house-flavored spirits and bitters, tableside cocktail service, and a zeal for fresh ingredients: order a gin and tonic, and it will likely come with a basil leaf plucked straight from a planter box. Better still, try the Maria do Leste, a Macanese take on the Bloody Mary spiced with pink peppercorns, piri-piri, and cinnamon. (853/28828898; stregismacao.com; doubles from US$243).
