Prior to arrival, the Conrad Macau had reached out and confirmed an update and my perks at the hotel as a Diamond member. The same Guest Relations Manager was present during our arrival and assisted with the check-in process. She also personally escorted us to the room and showed us the many features of the room before leaving us with her name card and reminding us to just call if we needed anything during our stay. She did keep her part of the offer when she made sure we got both types of the Conrad Macau rubber ducky in spite of several hiccups that Lydia was determined to collect. Major kudos!
The suite we were upgraded to was definitely one of the nicest rooms we’ve stayed in before. It was HUGE and very nicely furnished. I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.
When we got back to the room that night, there was a turndown service with bottle water provided bedside and a gift of a teddy bear.
One of my initial disappointments was finding out that there was not an executive lounge in the hotel. This in fact turned out to be a blessing in disguise since I actually preferred the perks that replaced the lounge was in fact better. This included free breakfast either in the main restaurant or room service. Despite the large selection of food available in the main restaurant, nothing beats breakfast brought up to your room after you’ve just worked out in the gym.
We were also provided tea during the afternoons which included a large selection of pastries. Despite the large selections, the pastries itself were just bleh that we didn’t go for it during the second day we were day.
I did spend some time getting some sun by the pool or should I say multiple tiny pools. Some were just big enough to do some short laps but kinda wish they just had one big pool instead.
Overall, we really REALLY enjoyed our stay at the Conrad Macau but we’re not sure if we’re going to come back since Macau itself was not all that interesting and we don’t gamble. Maybe we should just come back and find an excuse for what I think are the best egg tarts in the world.
