|The Suite life at Wynn Macau's Encore Tower|
This was our room, which was in Encore Tower, the newer wing at Wynn where all rooms are suites. All the rooms are facing Taipa, so you get an open view, and there are villas that are by invitation only - I guess I'll never be enough of a high-roller to know!

The suites were more than good enough for G and I. I'm not the most budget of travellers (that said, I'm not "good" enough to be a snob either) and I've site inspected more than my fair share of hotels for work, but double vanities, rotating TV (seriously!), floor-to-ceiling windows - you can say what you like about red carpets, but I've certainly seen worse.

The lounge was a treat, although sometimes I feel I never get enough out of them, because you don't really stay in your room for very long when you're in a city hotel, unless you're working, of course. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I had a deadline the night we were there, so I got to write while all sprawled out on the sofa. Wish I could do that all the time!
French toast Our last meal was breakfast at Cafe Encore, the all-day cafe in the Encore Tower of the Wynn, round the corner from the very glam jewelbox lookalike, Bar Cristal (which I would be keen to visit on my next trip to Macau*).

*I've made a couple of trips to Macau of late, and each time have discovered some very decent bars. Yes, many are in hotels and near gaming floors, but they're always quite tucked away and once you're in them, are excellent respite from the poker machines and unfortunately, badly-dressed tourists.
