Review: Four Seasons Hotel, Macau

Family Friendly Accommodation

Holidays with Kids blogger, Rene Young, finds the Four Seasons Hotel in Macau is a great, family friendly accommodation option when travelling with kids - especially kids that love frozen!

"It’s Elsa’s castle,” my Frozen loving three-year old proclaims on entering the spectacular lobby of the Four Seasons Hotel Macau. Like Queen’s Elsa’s ice palace, two sweeping curved staircases lead to a mezzanine overlooking an elegant chandelier.

On the ground floor by reception the kids spirits are high, despite a long day of travel, as they are each gifted with a teddy bear.

It’s heartwarming to see their interactions with the bellman as they pretend the neo-classical styled seating area, surrounded by fresh flower arrangements and flanked by two grand pillars, is a castle. There are smiles all around as chairs become thrones for their new toys, Winky and Bear.

Fresh orchards also decorate our sprawling Ambassador Suite. The suite boasts a separate living area, two full marble bathrooms, butler’s pantry and powder room.

Located in the heart of Cotai Strip, the wraparound balcony offers unobstructed views of the dazzling lights and towering casinos.

The kids lay claim to the expansive living area, sighting two rollaway beds and a dedicated play space just for them. There’s a pop-up tent, play mat, toys and crayons setup.

On the dining table, personalised welcome messages accompany boxes of treats and fruit for the family.

Two comfy sofas in front of the 60” flatscreen TV offers satellite channels including Nickelodeon, kids can also sample local Chinese cartoons or borrow DVDs from the children’s library.

We wrap the kids up in the adorable mini-robes and slippers supplied and headed out for a swim in one of the hotel’s five pools.

We took turns to relax in the private cabana poolside, which comes with privacy curtain, TV and fan, while the kids played.
The only problem is getting the kids out once they discovered the pool toys.

The buffet breakfast at Belacancao offers an international menu, with the kids favourites the fresh squeezed juices, custom noodle and omelette station, dim sum and pancakes.

Once our tummies are full, we head out in a hotel town car to see the Giant Pandas, play at the Science Centre and stroll the cobblestone streets of the old Historic Centre.

We soon discover that there's more to Macau than glitzy gambling resorts. A short walk from the hotel you'll find the Venetian's creamy egg tarts and gondola rides as well as the House of Dancing Water spectacle at City of Dreams.

Together we roam's Rene Young has travelled to 70 countries. When the Brisbane based blogger is not discovering Brisbane's street art, exploring Queensland or roaming the world with her five-year old son and three-year old daughter, she can be found indulging her love of reality TV.
