The Parisian Macao, Macau – a Hotel Review

The Parisian Macao is one of the 8 world class hotels belonging to Sands Resorts Macao. Together they have more than 12000 rooms, 850 shopping outlets, and 150 restaurants. Sands Resorts Macao figures among the top in the list of Asia’s leading integrated resort destination. Among these hotels they hosted me in their latest and brand new hotel, The Parisian Macao. This hotel was inaugurated in September 2016. 8 months in to functioning, the hotel seemed to flourish and serve well.

Even before I got to the interiors, I was totally enamored by the exteriors of the hotel; the sight of replica of Eiffel Tower is such! For a first timer there it can be overwhelming. Finally when I saw the tower gleaming with colourful lights at night that too from my room I was dazed and wordless beyond words! Here I was in the lap of luxury, a dreamy sight right from my window – all spent on me alone to dream of my husband left behind in the concrete jungle. Sleep seemed distant as I kept staring out of the window till my eyelids got heavy and could hold no more! Do check out the post: Eiffel Tower Light Show at The Parisian Macao for more details on the replica of Eiffel Tower.

Lobby of the hotel

Stepping in to the hotel’s lobby is like immersing yourself in French décor. The entire atmosphere was something royal and grand which made me forget where I was! For a moment I felt it was the interiors of some palace.  The dome, the rotunda, huge pillars, beautifully tiled floors the painted ceilings, almost everything seemed to demand attention at the same time. Most striking sight was that of the ‘Fontaine de Mers’ fountain. God of sea, Neptune seated gracefully receiving all who walk into the lobby.  There is continuous flash of colored light on it giving a magical effect. I could just stand and watch it for hours, but then I was quickly taken for check in and other formalities.

Later I returned to this lobby several times during my stay of 4 days and took pictures to my heart’s content. Each time it reminded me of my visit to Versailles in Paris. The delicate gilding, rich jewel tones of the reception and concierge is indeed inspired from Versailles of Paris. Bronze and crystal chandeliers, furnishings, silk textiles and porcelains celebrate the height of the French decorative arts. The name Parisian Macao fits the hotel so well!

The Parisian Macao Hotel Rooms

The hotel has approximately 3,000 guestrooms and suites. All rooms are designed with contemporary French flair. While the glitter and gold is missing, the rooms had sober charming effect.

Over one-third of the hotel’s rooms offer spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower, so make sure you are early to have the option of choosing one.

How to Reach The Parisian Macao

By air – Macao International Airport is 5mins away and the hotel provides complimentary pick up and drop. I arrived at the hotel via Hong Kong International Airport and took a direct express ferry to Macau. Ferry ride is one hour, and there was no need to go through Hong Kong Customs. Via Guangzhou Baiyun Airport you will have to catch a coach service to Zhuhai Xinhe Coach Station and proceed to Gongbei Customs before entering Macao. Travel time between Guangzhou and Macao is 2.5 hours. Take a shuttle bus to the Lotus Bridge Customs if you are coming through Zhuhai Airport. From there, take the complimentary Parisian shuttle bus to The Parisian Macao. Travel time – 30mins.

By land – If coming from Zhuhai or from Gongbei Border Gate, proceed through Customs. Once in Macao, take the complimentary Parisian shuttle bus to The Parisian Macao.

  • Truly Amazing . Great to read review of The Parisian Macao.
    Awesome pics.

  • This hotel looks beautiful, we want to go to Macau when we go to Hong Kong this year. I’ll consider this hotel for sure cause the rooms look great to have a kid with us!

  • What an amazing hotel! A view of the Eiffel tower…how magical!!! We always travel with the kids and a cool kids’ friendly sleeping area would sure go over well with them! Love the decor, too. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Paris but the kids haven’t and boy do they want to go!!

  • Wow, now this really does look like a lot of fun. Certainly, Macao has a wonderful gift of selecting interesting aspects of other cultures and putting their own unique spin on it, even if some of the luxury here looks as though it could rival the French capital. You managed to capture it really well with your photos too

  • The hotel looks magnificent with so many facilities and amenities and of course the iconic mini Eiffel tower.
    Seems an awesome place to visit!! The hotel seems like a destination in itself with the casino and the shopping experience. Would definitely love to visit.

  • That looks like a luxurious property. I loved the Lyon Suite. It’s cheerful and vibrant. Macau seems like an interesting place. Off late a lot of Indians are exploring it but the destination needs more push.

  • Such an opulent hotel! I don’t have kids, but I’m obsessed with how cute the family friendly room is! What an awesome way to accommodate families!

  • Wow that is really nice. I like the different room choices. The property looks beautiful as well.

  • The hotel looks amazing. Especially the reception area, such gorgeous floor and ceilings. The rooms looks comfy and spacious. Would love to stay here. A very detailed and a lovely write-up.

  • Omg been seeing so much about this place in other people’s photos but never from people that actually stayed! It looks so fancy and relaxing!

  • Looks a pretty grand resort hotel. You know where there’s a casino you’re going to get really luxurious hotels at quite reasonable prices. Love to experience Macau sometime.

  • What a gorgeous place and that Eiffel Tower looks almost real! I especially liked the plush lobby…so inviting 🙂

  • 12k rooms, 150 restaurants and 850 shopping places??? That’s a destination by itself!!! Haha! Husband left alone in concrete jungle! Lolz. Poor soul! The fountain looks gorgeous! Indeed Parisian! The ballroom looks stunning as well!

  • The Parisian Macao looks incredible! I can’t get over how big and ornate it is. We’ll definitely stop in there when we’re in Macao!

  • Wow the lobby looks so elegant and decorative. The rooms look so spacious and comfy too. I would love to stay at the eiffel tower room!

  • I have been to Parisian Macau recently and I spent considerable time near the miniature Eiffel tower because I enjoyed the music that was being played and synced with the water fountain. Probably, I will share pictures on my blog and instagram.

  • Wow, that looks awesome! I’ve never stayed at a big hotel like that, but it seems amazing. Macau is such an interesting and multicultural city, I can imagine it’s really cool to experience it in such a fancy hotel.

  • Well I didn’t know that existed! Wow, to be honest, I know nothing of Macau, must look into this!

  • When a hotel has that many rooms I start to wonder if they can deliver fantastic service to every room, but clearly this hotel is doing something right! The interior design is beautiful. It’s nice that they offer so many activities too.

  • Wow! What an amazing hotel. I’d love to have an Eiffel Tower view next time I’m in Paris! I bet kids would LOVE that family room.

  • Are you kidding me? This is absolutely gorgeous! I would kill to stay at a place this amazing.

  • Nice hotel! Did you win at the casino?

  • This looks like such a beautiful place! The family room is adorable!

  • The hotel is the epitome of luxury. The lobby is grand, the interiors are sumptuous and the views are great. How was the breakfast?

  • An impressive hotel! Looks like a perfect luxury destination! I loved the Art Nouveau details, especially the stained glass…

  • Wow! What a lovely hotel. Love the room you stayed in. If we were travelling with kids, the family room would have been a fun option. The interior looks really luxurious. Our kinda place!

  • Whoah! That is a massive hotel! Thousands of rooms – wow! But how much are their room rates though?

  • The Parisian Macau is really grand in all sense of the word. Waking up in a room which has view of the the Eiffel tower, albeit a replica, must indeed be a high in itself. Love the French ambience that the hotel oozes.

  • So close to the most sought after attraction in Paris! I will like to see how the eiffel tower looks from the room during the night. And the rooms also look quiet good. I love the setup with the parent and child beds in the same room but with their own spaces defined.

  • Wow! 12000 rooms ; 850 shopping places – that is a huge huge no. The rooms look so cozy especially the lyon suite. I liked their family room too. I am sure the night view of eiffel tower replica surely will not let anyone sleep till the eyelids get too heavy. Whole Macau is so interesting. Will love to consider this place once around.

  • The Parisian looks so stunning! Had you not mentioned Macau, I could have easily taken this for some hotel in a European country! The replica of Eiffel Tower looks great, and so are the fountains. The room looks quite contemporary though, which came as a surprise since the rest of the hotel looks so traditionally European in style!

  • first I thought this is vegas!! I love your review. Very articulate

  • We drove past this hotel from the outside on a recent visit to Macau and it made me smile to see the replica Eiffel Tower. Looks really really luxuriously decorated inside, especially in the lobby and dining areas. The rooms look comfortable, I’m glad they are not as over the top, but more classic and comfortable.

  • I didn’t realise that there were any hotel Eiffel Tower replicas aside from one in Las Vegas in the US. It looks like a very comfortable place, as well as quite detailed.

  • The Lyon suite actually looks bigger than my house!!! Love that there’s an Eiffel Tower there too – if you were jetlagged, you might not know exactly where you are when you wake up 😀 But even the smaller rooms look comfortable and spacious – looks like a great place to stay!

  • Good information. I just moved to Shenzhen, China last month and was planning on visiting Macau in August. I was thinking of staying at The Parisian as well, so this was a perfect preview. Looks like you had a great time at a beautiful property!

  • It looks so charming, love that French flair. It’s nice how the rooms are so contemporary and cozy while there’s that classic feel in the lobby or even outside. Nice review, thanks. 🙂

  • WOW!! Awesome! I’ve been to Macau and I loved it. Fantastic food and cosmopolitan vibes but still some parts of the island manage to preserve the old style of it! :- ) Like many hotels in Macau, this one is definitely a super win! Benchmarking the luxury and glamour of the Las Vegas of Asia.

    Oh wow, you really could be forgiven for thinking you were in France – I love the Parisian atmosphere and French flair they’ve achieved with the decor, and it’s incredible that they can offer 1/3 of the hotel an Eiffel tower view with 3,000 rooms. The structure here is far more convincing than the one they have in Vegas – they actually achieve a Paris away from Paris here!
