Located at the heart of the resort, Spectacle is the epicenter of entertainment at MGM COTAI. Providing an immersive, multi-dimensional sensory experience to guests, Spectacle is a meticulously engineered column-free long-span diagrid structure, which will seem to be alive, continually evolving and responding to changing conditions such as visitor behaviors, weather, time of day or season. Spectacle comprises the world’s largest area of permanent indoor LED screens, which showcases an exclusive array of digital art collected from around the globe. Complementing the technology is the world’s largest indoor art garden, dubbed Nature’s Art. Spectacle will house more than 100,000 plants and over 2,000 plant species including more than 200 different orchid species, many of which are native to Macau and Hong Kong.
MGM COTAI is also bringing some of the world’s most innovative culinary adventure to Macau. The resort offers never-before-seen-in-Macau dining concepts led by four globally acclaimed chefs – Mauro Colagreco, Mitsuharu Tsumura, Graham Elliot and Janice Wong. Together with four other restaurants offering authentic Chinese cuisines from different regions and a bar serving crafted cocktails, a total of nine food and beverage outlets at MGM COTAI will take everyone on an unprecedented gastronomic journey.
Guests can also enrich their travels with over 300 pieces of captivating and thought-provoking artwork from the MGM COTAI Art Collection which will be on display throughout the resort. This includes 28 Chinese imperial carpets dating from the Qing Dynasty, modern and contemporary Asian paintings and sculptures by renowned artists, freshly-commissioned works by local and regional rising talents, and large-scale installations.
In keeping with MGM’s reputation for best in class facilities, the 1,390 guest rooms manifest a serene setting by blending sophisticated elegance and modern luxuries, with comfortable and functional design.
