Macau is known as the playground for gamblers. The gambling destination has not been known in the past as a place where families can go to enjoy time together. However, the casinos in Macau have been working to attract families, especially as their high-roller business has decreased. Looking to spend some time with your family and gamble as well? We have some suggestions for you if you want to gamble and have fun with your family in Macau.
Even before you reach the casino itself, your kids will be fascinated by the architecture of the building. The building looks like it should be in a Transformers movie. The building has its skeleton on the outside of the building rather than the inside. This feature gives it a feeling of 22nd century architecture. The casino resort has 770 rooms, with six luxury villas. Three of the villas have private pools in the room, which makes those villas awesome for kids. In addition to the villas, the hotel has a club for kids. Kid’s City is a huge indoor jungle gym and playroom with over 17,000 feet of play space. The hotel casino, which just opened in June, has special events specifically designed for families as well.
The Galaxy Macau casino resort has an emphasis on families and family entertainment. The world’s largest kids club is there—over 60,000 square feet of entertainment and interactive activities for kids. The resort offers educational opportunities for kids as well. The resort has a pool specifically for families that includes a kid’s pool. Galaxy also has a huge (180,000 square feet) Grand Resort Deck for families. There are programs and activities throughout the day specifically designed for children and their families. The restaurants at the hotel are kid friendly. The resort even has a barber shop and a beauty salon for kids.
The Parisian Casino Resort
The Parisian attracts kids to the resort from the beginning, with a replica of the Eiffel Tower in front of the resort. There is a shopping area your tweens and teens will love. Several restaurants are kid friendly as well. There are two observation decks on the 7th and 37th floor. The observation decks offer spectacular views of the city, and a light show every night. The resort has two play areas. The first play area is an outdoor water-themed play area called Aqua World. Parents are allowed to go into the area with their children, or drop them off for some adult time. In addition, kids can also choose to play in the Qube Kingdom, which is a giant indoor playroom.
The Sheraton Cotai is different from some of the other casino resorts on the Cotai Strip. The hotel has multiple playrooms separated by age. For example, toddlers and young children can play at the resort’s new Little Big Club. It is designed for their needs and how they play. All of the equipment in the new club is toddler-friendly. The resort also boasts two other playrooms for older kids. Two of the pools at the resort are kid friendly as well. So, after a long day of gambling, adults can take their kids to the Sala Pool or the Jaya Pool to relax. In addition, there is a show at the resort specifically for kids. The show is called The Monkey King. It is one of the most popular shows on the Cotai Strip.
The Venetian Cotai
While its counterpart in Vegas is not kid friendly, the Venetian has activities and interests for everyone in your family. There is a children’s playground indoors that is 10,000 feet of slides, ropes, bridges, and net climbers. Teenagers have their own area with gaming devices, internet access, air hockey, movies, and snacks. Like many of the casino resorts featured, the Venetian has kid friendly pool areas. There is an adult pool area with no kids where mom and dad can relax and take time for each other. The Venetian also offers kid friendly restaurants. The resort has family suites with extra kid amenities as well as kid-friendly entertainment in the room.
The Four Seasons, Cotai
While the Four Seasons does not have a casino on site, it is next door to the Venetian and the Sands Cotai. Adults have no problem walking over to either casino. It may be worth it, since the Four Seasons has a ton of kid-sized entertainment. One of the best things about the Four Season Cotai is the in-room entertainment. Babysitting services are available. Kids can order from their own menu of kid-loved food for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They get their own bathrobes and toiletries as well. There is a huge kid’s playroom, as well as a family pool. This resort hotel is great for adults who want to gamble, but want their kids to have fun as well.
The Countdown Hotel and Casino
Formerly the Hard Rock Casino Hotel, the rebranded hotel still has the rock star amenities. The casino has one of the best kid’s playrooms in the area. The combined indoor/outdoor play area is nearly 20,000 square feet. There is a restaurant located in the family pool area. The restaurant is convenient for families with children who want to stay and play in the pool. Babysitting services are also available. The resort hotel also offers discount family packages, which makes it much easier for families to travel to the Macau area.
Grand Lapa Macau
This hotel is amazing for families because of the pool scene. A family can enjoy a vacation in a heated pool or an unheated pool. One of the swimming pools moves into a waterfall. Adults can enjoy Jacuzzis indoors and outdoors. Also, there are water slides for both children and adults. The pool area features a lovely garden as well. Adults can bundle the children off to a sitter and enjoy the peace and serenity of the garden. Another favorite of the casino resort is afternoon tea at The Cake Shop, which features amazing treats for children and adults. The child-themed tea is not to be missed.
Studio City Macau
Studio City Macau is one of the best places for families in Macau. The resort has a theme park, an indoor playground, a theater with magic shows, and full family services. There is a 4D Batman entertainment zone, as well as a figure-eight Ferris wheel, which is not to be missed. The magic shows are top of the line. Families have reported the shows are some of the best in the world—rivalling the magic shows in Vegas. The hotel offers babysitting services, as well as kid-friendly movie theatres and restaurants. If you want to visit casinos, they are a short step away. Many families have put Studio City Macau at the top of their lists for family fun.
Macau still has a way to go to rival the family entertainment in its largest competitor, Las Vegas. However, it is clear Macau has done a lot to ensure families are entertained.
