The Venetian

Carolyn, Rachel, Whitney and I whisked off for a night of pure indulgence at the Venetian Hotel in Macau on Thursday 24th July. The Venetian is a 5 star luxury hotel, that is absolutely enormous. I think we walked at least 5 kms when we first got there, just trying to find our way around (without going through the casino). We caught the "Cotai Jet" (a hydro ferry) from Hong Kong Harbour to Macau...the seats were like airline seating..only bigger and more comfortable. Then we caught a shuttle bus from the port to the hotel, it took us a while to find the main entrance to check in at the big main lobby we'd seen on the website. Have a look for yourself: www.venetianmacao.com We stayed in a Bella Suite, Whitney & Rachel shared one bed and Carolyn and I shared the other. Swimming pools, bubble baths, luxury robes & slippers, chocolate & non-alcholic sparkling grape juice, a gondola ride which included an impromtu performance by the gondalier, the best most pampering manicure I've ever had, a full buffet breakfast, and late night girl talk....thanks girls for a wonderful time, memories to last a lifetime!!
