Grand Lapa Macau – a luxury 5-star hotel in Macau

Hotel Review: Grand Lapa Macau

Hotel Name: Grand Lapa Macau
Address: 956-1110 Avenida da Amizade, Macau, China

I stayed at the Grand Lapa in Macau. The hotel was a sponsor of the Macau Tower Crazy Jump Day which I was attending on behalf of AirAsia. I was here as a guest of the hotel.

The Grand Lapa is a 5-star luxury hotel located near the Outer Harbour end of the old town area. This is one of my recommended areas to stay in Macau.

There are a cluster of casinos in this part of Macau that are of the flashy glass-box Las Vegas variety. By comparison the outer exterior here suggests that this is one of the original hotels in the area.

Don’t judge a hotel on its exterior though. Upon entry to the hotel it is a different story. This is an elegant luxury hotel that is modern, but feels a bit classier than its newer contemporaries. What I like about this hotel is that you don’t feel like you are staying in a Casino. Of course being Macau there is casino in the hotel. It’s a small casino discreetly tucked away on the second floor, so you won’t need to fight your way through a gaming floor to check in.

My room was spacious with a view of the harbour, and the bed was luxuriously soft.

A useful working table and big TV in front of the bed.

The bathroom was spacious with a separate bath tub and shower box.

Coffee and tea making facilities in the room.

The hotel has a swimming pool / resort area behind the hotel. It’s in another property which is connected by a covered walkway. Between the hotel and the pool is this Portuguese-style colonial-era plaza.

Once you see the pool you will see that it made more sense to have it here rather than on the hotel. It’s a big pool space – a resort within the city.

There is also another little pool with a built-in waterfall garden.

This is a clever marketing idea which I’m sure every hotel with a nice pool will eventually do – advertising the hotel Instagram account.

The resort section of the hotel has a spa and fitness centre.

It’s the little details that count, such as these changing room signs.

The buffet breakfast had a great selection of Asian and western favourites.

There is free wifi in the hotel, and if you’ve just arrived from mainland China then you will welcome being back in a land with open and free internet. It is an easy login for the wifi as well, and I was able to use it from my room to the downstairs area without logging in again.

The location of the hotel is convenient as well as it about 20 minutes walk from the UNESCO World Heritage Historic Centre of Macao. And of course you are also nearby plenty of casinos, such as the Sands Casino, Wynn, StarWorld, Lisboa, and the Fisherman’s Wharf entertainment area.

Overall this was a great to stay at in Macau. Check for hotel promotions here.
