1. Wynn Palace
Costing a cool $4bn, this 1700-room Cotai monster unsurprisingly drips luxury – think Jeff Koons artworks and Qing Dynasty vases, and a gigantic lake peppered with fountains – but does surprise with its surprisingly modest room rates. Even standard rooms are sleek and spacious, with touches like a choice of eight pillow types and floor-to-ceiling windows. Twelve restaurants offer overwhelming dining choices, including Hanami Ramen, headed by Michelin-starred chef Yuki Onishi. There’s a spa and gym, casino, upmarket shops and even a cable car, and it’s conveniently close to the airport and ferry terminal.
