The Parisian Macao
The Parisian Macao is the newest kid on the block when it comes to Macau’s latest spree of multi-billion-dollar new hotels. Having opened last September at a staggering cost of US$2.7 billion, it’s Macau’s own little piece of Paris, complete with a half-scale replica of the iconic Eiffel Tower. The tower features two observation decks, situated on the 37th floor, offering panoramic views looking out over Macau. It’s also home to its own pan-Asian style restaurant, La Chine, located on the 6th floor, which serves up a blend of East and West culinary traditions.
The hotel is styled on the 1850s-1960s golden age of Paris – with its art, culture, and joie de vivre. Alongside the replica Eiffel Tower, you’ll find other tributes to some of Paris’ most famous landmarks, including a hotel reception area inspired by the prestigious Palace of Versailles and a stunning replica of the Fontaine de Mars fountain from the heart of Paris.
The hotel offers approximately 3,000 guest rooms and suites, mostly named after iconic locations in France, and just over one-third of the rooms offer views of the Eiffel Tower – an ideal spot for watching the nightly light show.
Other talking points include The Shoppes at Parisian, a true shopper’s paradise, featuring 150 boutiques and kiosks with the latest in luxury fashion designers, couture, and lifestyle brands all set in a precinct reminiscent of Paris’ famed Champs-Élysées.
Foodies are in for a treat, too, as The Parisian boasts its own classic French-style bistro called The Brasserie and its own signature Chinese restaurant called Lotus Palace, alongside several other French-style sidewalk cafés.
In addition, there’s a 1,200-seat Parisian Theatre, which, integrated into the hotel, hosts music concerts and Broadway-style shows. Outside there’s an expansive pool deck area with a heated swimming pool and Aqua World, complete with a life-size pirate ship designed for kids to enjoy. Meanwhile, a 12-treatment-room luxury spa called Le SPA’tique offers grown-ups a place to unwind.
