Taste of Edesia | Elegance for all seasons

Lately, the talk of the town has been the opening of The Grand Suites at Four Seasons. At 40 storeys tall, it is the new all-suite tower of Four Seasons Hotel Macao, the first of its kind within the Four Seasons global portfolio of 119 properties.
The luxurious tower offers five suite categories: one-bedroom Dynasty Suites, two-bedroom Imperial Suites, three-bedroom Taipan Suites, Skyview Suites and the Skyview Villa. The smallest suite configuration begins at 160 square meters, and the largest two-storey Skyview Villas each span over 455 square meters, featuring plunge pools overlooking the vibrant Cotai Strip from level 40.
An experience at The Grand Suites at Four Seasons is paired with an array of bespoke services and rituals. Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with an elegant tea ceremony, an inherited tradition of the Chinese quintessence. Tea house Fook Ming Tong, a partner of the Michelin-starred Zi Yat Heen Cantonese Restaurant at the hotel, has curated five types of premium tea for the tea ceremony. Premium Pu’er and Jasmine are among the choices.
A collection of six luxury bath rituals has been curated to provide guests with the utmost relaxation during their stay, including Aromatic Bliss which showcases bath oil from Aromatherapy Associates and ginger tea to warm and soothe the soul during winter time.
To make the hotel feel like a home, each suite is equipped with a walk-in kitchenette that features home appliances such as a conventional oven, dishwasher, and wine cellar by renowned brands Miele and Gaggenau. As every suite features a versatile kitchenette, Four Seasons master chefs, including members of the Michelin-starred Zi Yat Heen team, are available to create a meal in the suite. For guests opting to prepare a feast themselves, the butler can help to prepare a kitchenette stock up service, where the desired groceries and ingredients will be ready upon check-in.
Other amenities include a full walk-in closet, steam room, and a high-end Hansgrohe AXOR shower solution in the bathrooms. A private fitness room, steam and sauna room, and spacious closets are all part of the suite experience. Privacy and quietness are essential for ultimate indulgences. With this in mind, each floor is designed to house up to a maximum of just five suites.
For adventurous diners who prefer not to eat inside the hotel room, the elegant Vista 38 offers a seasonal menu of Sichuan dishes crafted by Chinese master chef Lan Minglu. Chef Lan is a leading chef of his generation and an authority on Sichuan cuisine who combines innovative cooking techniques to skillfully integrate his concept of “Sichuan flavours, global ingredients, contemporary presentation.”
Spa lovers will be delighted with a signature ritual titled “Blissful Sensation” at the hotel’s spa. With the Portuguese heritage of Macau as an inspiration, a foot and back scrub is first applied with a unique blend of scrub salt mixed from the essence of the Port Wine. After, a body massage is performed with a fermented herb massage oil exclusively developed for Four Seasons Macao particularly for the ritual. With each stroke, the mind, skin and body feel lighter and more refreshed. Irene Sam, Mdt
