Luxury Hotels


A hotel, or brand, can present itself as beautiful. ┬áThink Wynn – the shot above is of Wynn’s stand at the last ILTM Asia Pacific held in Shanghai before this vital show relocated to Singapore. The stand stood out.

The first time she stayed in a Wynn, Girlahead was tremendously impressed by the bathroom – spacious and light, soft honey tones, superb and enhancing lighting, and own-label toiletries that were easy to access and thoughtful. There was hairspray, plus a gold-handled razor, and a wood-handled back brush. (Last month, private jet commentator Doug Gollan, who writes DGamazing Experiences, shared that the night-turndown he had experienced at WYNN LAS VEGAS ENCORE was unexpected – far too many American ‘luxury’ hotels have guillotined second service altogether – and meticulously thoughtful.)

Even the exterior of a Wynn is beautiful. A caramel-topped vertical crescent of deep copper mirror. Inside, apart from the necessary casino, the spaces, be they in Vegas, Boston Harbor or Macau, are beautiful, too. And as for Vegas’ Delilah restaurant, well, what can one say other than beautiful? Ambience, food and drink, service and entertainment. All the big-B, for Beautiful, word.
