A hotel / stay become a very integral part in any travel as it becomes an enabler of the wholesome experiences and memories that we carry back with us. Hence, picking a hotel becomes one of the most important decisions after deciding on a destination. With a holiday in my mind and Macao topping my list, here are 10 reasons (not in any particular order) why I'd stay at Sheraton Macao Hotel and also highly recommend the same for you to consider:

1. Part of the bustling Sands Cotai Central 
Sands Cotai Central is Macao's newest and most exciting fully integrated resort. The bustling Sands Cotai Central plays host to over 100 world-class retail stores, 2 casinos, 20 restaurants and cafes, loads of live entertainment and a host of amenities for the discerning business or leisure traveller. 

Aptly located right in the middle of Macao's premier destination; Sands Cotai Central, Sheraton Macao Hotel is in the heart of the bustling resort yet got a location that is comfortable and sophisticated. Can there be a better location?

2. Largest Sheraton in the world
Owner and managed by Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Sheraton Macao Hotel is the largest hotel in Macao as well as the largest Sheraton in the world. Spread over two towers - Sky and Earth, the hotel houses 3896 guest rooms and suites which exude style, warmth, sophistication and amenities that promise tech, social, work and relaxation conveniences.

Offering fine Asian and International cuisines are the 3 signature restaurants of Sheraton - Bene, Feast and Xin. Being located in the middle of Cotai Central, guests residing at #SheratonMacao also have convenient access to a wide range of diverse dining avenues hosted in the Sands Cotai Central resort property.

3. Dreamwork's Experience 
It's all about the experience; be it for a traveler on leisure or business; with family, friends or children, there is something for all to experience. You get to stay in Dreamworks themed suites, dine with, meet and greet or celebrate birthdays with Dreamworks characters like Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, Puss in the Boots and likes. 

The signature 'DreamWorks Animation All-Star Parade' is a daily parade involving 12 characters, a troop of dancers, stilt walkers and performers set the tempo high and entertain the guests at Sands Cotai. They dance their way through the shoppes at  Cotai Central, wave and shake hands with the crowd as they parade on hit themes of Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon and more.

Stay at Sheraton Macao Hotel and you are sure to have a blast over 'Shrekfast' - a fairytale breakfast feast fit for a king. It involves an exclusive performance on stage by the DreamWorks characters followed by an intimate breakfast with the world’s favorite gang. Irrespective of your age group, you are sure to have a blast at this exclusive experience like no other. 

That’s #DreamworksExperience in a nutshell. Here's more on the exclusive range of DreamWorks Experiences

4. Dragon Training Camp
Who doesn't love 'Toothless the Night Fury' the most mysterious yet adorable dragon of all? 

Like DreamWorks Experience, the #DragonTrainingCamp quite excites me. Sheraton Macao recreates the magic of the Island of Berk to take kids through  a series of training zones like helmet decoration, interactive computer games, fun art and craft activities, dressing up kids with Viking paints and more before the meet with 'Toothless the Night Fury' and go on to become 'Certified Junior Dragon Trainers'.

Though this camp is designed for children of the age 4 to 12, I'd love to be a part this dragon training camp. If you'd like to be a part of it too, here's more about the Dragon Training Camp

5. Internally connected to the top hotels like Venetian and more 
Staying at Sheraton Macao Hotel provides for an experience like no other. Being connected to a host of amenities, local attractions, access to various hotels and casinos is the key. Staying at #SheratonMacao provides for all of this including access to Venetian, Holiday Inn, Sands Cotai Central Shoppes, various dining venues, live entertainment and loads of other facilities.

6. Casinos for some gambling kick
I am no regular or professional gambler just a tourist who loves to experience and make the most of it. Gambling to me is something I play for kicks. So not being a professional, playing just for kicks and fun of it Macao seems apt to enjoy a night or two at the casino for the affordability that comes with the currency exchange of HKDINR (1 HKD = ~8 INR).

Being centrally located in Sands Cotai Resort property, Guests have access to multiple casinos - 2 Casinos at Sands Cotai and also at Venetian and the likes. 

7. Business Meetings, Conferences & Events (MICE)
Be it Business Meetings, conferences, corporate events, weddings (Indian style or any), Sheraton Macao Hotel is all geared up to provide the most holistic experience. Yes! Even Indian Weddings; they are all set for an extravagant Indian wedding right from organizing the rituals to the food of every state and Union Territory, every need for a grand wedding is met here. 

Pillar-less Grand Ballroom, 9 junior ballrooms, over 150 breakout rooms with direct room access make Sheraton Macao the most comprehensive and versatile hotel to handle meetings and events of any magnitude. With nearly 3900 stylish guest rooms and suites, a world of amenities, apt location and 19,000 SQMT (includes 5,000 SQMT of Sands Cotai space) of meeting and event space, Sheraton Macao also has the most extensive inventory to accommodate a board room meeting for as low as 12 guests to a theatre style event for 5,000 guests.

At Sheraton it does not end with the space and amenities.

10. Unwind in the Pools
It's hard to beat a good dip in a pool on a lazy day. And when to unwind, you have not one but three pools in the property with each focused on serving a different need; it clearly makes for an unforgettable holiday. 

Jaya, Sala and Tiki are the 3 pools that come with private cabanas and a chilled out poolside cafe for some snacks and light meals. 

Well, there are a lot more reasons and the list can go on. Why not go for yourself and experience the world of dreams and return with a custom duty free baggage of wonderful experiences and memories.
