Altira Macau Casino Review
The Altira looms over Macau as its tallest building, standing proud at a height of 160 meters. A hotel-cum-casino with 216 guest rooms and four signature restaurants and a well-trained staff that’s ready to cater to your every whim, the experience at the Altira is incomparable to what any of the other hotels in Macau can offer.
The Altira had once been known as Crown Macau, but changed its name in 2009 when the Crown Towers Casino opened as part of the City of Dreams Macau. The interiors of the casino and hotel were created by Peter Remédios, a world-renowned designer who has also been credited with creating the awe-inspiring interiors of the Ritz-Carlton in Japan. Remédios has made a name for himself by creating beautiful designs with intricate detailing that pays homage to the culture of the country his buildings are being built in. These interiors are part of the reason why the Altira has achieved its status as the most high-class hotel and casino in Macau.
The ground floor of the Altira houses the Mocha, the hotel’s gaming venue and casino. The Mocha prides itself in providing its guests with a more private, discreet, and specialised gaming experience. The Altira also stands at the forefront of technology, having no live dealers and relying on electronic and digital gaming terminals.
While a night at the Altira is sure to give you more than your recommended dose of culture and entertainment, the real star of the show in the hotel is their food. Four signature restaurants have made their home in the Altira, as well as 1 casual dining area, and 1 drinking area. The four restaurants of the Altira offer varying cuisines, with the Aurora specialising in Italian; Kira serving up authentic Japanese seafood; Tenmasa creating Japanese cuisine with ingredients flown in from Japan five times a week; and Ying, a Cantonese restaurant with an exceptional culinary team.
The casual dining area of the Altira is called the Monsoon. It offers Asian dishes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There’s also a special dining area in the private Altira Club.
Entertainment and events
The Altira never ceases to amaze its guests with events and special offers, allowing them to have a Forbes Five-Star Experience. For only MOP555 per person, plus a 10% service charge, guests will be treated to the only Forbes Five-Star Italian Restaurant in Macau. There are also regular discounts being given for the hotel’s other services such as the Altira Spa.
The Altira’s gaming rooms and dining areas are all available for special bookings and private events.
Because of the nature of the casino and its reputation as a five-star hotel, guests must honour their commitment to sophistication by dressing only in smart attires. No sportswear is allowed in any of the casino’s premises, and denim jeans are also frowned upon. Anything that could potentially obstruct the views of the security cameras, like sports caps and hoodies, are also prohibited within the Altira.
There are various membership deals available at the Altira. Those who wish to become members of the prestigious Altira Club need only approach any member of the staff and fill out an application form. Altira Club members are treated to special deals and promotions, as well as access to the Altira Club in the 1m level of the casino. The Mocha also has its own membership scheme, and guests who wish to join the casino can approach the front desk at the Mocha or call the casino’s hotline in order to apply for membership.
