Named after the God of Dreams in Greek mythology, Morpheus Hotel in Macau focuses on experiences that go beyond gaming.
Described by its CEO, Lawrence Ho, as a “thank you to China and a love letter to Macau’, Morpheus takes luxury to a whole new level.
Morpheus cost a total of US$1.1 billion (RM4.5 billion) to build and created an estimated 1,300 jobs in Macau. From the interior design, food and beverage partners to room amenities and hotel facilities, no expense were spared in the making of Macau’s most luxurious integrated resort.
Here, Datin Dian lists down her favourite memories from the unique experience.
“When the car pulled up at the hotel entrance, it was like a scene from Men In Black, because there were men in black suits waiting for me. Upon stepping out I was greeted by Morpheus’s manager and several of his staff. Instead of checking in at the reception, I was escorted through the majestic lobby to a high-speed glass elevator which took me to my room on the 21st floor. In the lift, I got to enjoy a panoramic view of the breath-taking voids that traversed the centre of the hotel.”
Into The Future
“As it turned out, my room wasn’t just an ordinary room, but a heavenly, futuristic suite with a Dyson hair dryer, amongst others. Not only were my initials were embroidered on the pillowcases and bathrobes, I was greeted with a bouquet of flowers in my favourite colours, Pierre Hermé chocolates and a handwritten welcome letter in the most beautiful calligraphy. I was especially pleased with the high-speed internet, as it made it so much easier to continue with my work during the short break. The next day I got to try the Icaros machine that combines fitness and virtual reality, which is currently the only machine in Asia! It was pretty cool, but I wouldn’t recommend it to people with motion sickness.”
