Macau travel diary part II! If you think you enjoyed the first part, wait until you see this post. Thank you again City of Dreams Macau and Manila for this experience. After dinner and watching the flash mob, it’s now time to watch the only playful cabaret experience in Asia: Taboo. The show was inside Hard Rock Hotel’s club called Cubic so it was very convenient for us. This show is a must-watch!
We had about 20-30 minutes before the show started so we toured around Club Cubic and had a sneak peek of their VIP rooms (that looked more like condo units because of the space). This one is their biggest VIP room where you can spot a billiard table, a karaoke machine, a huge TV, a counter fill with champagne and shot glasses and a couch for you and your best buddies to have fun all night long.
Love their coasters.
Each room has a different theme, so this one is very dark and chic. Everything is black, gold and silver. Club Cubic has different types of entertainment every night. Aside from Taboo, they have a wide array of international DJs every night. I like the club’s style because they have an incredible stage where people can dance! I also heard the first Perrier-Jouet champagne bar started here.
Another VIP room and the colour theme is pink! Not only can you reserve these rooms for parties, you can also rent their VIP rooms with a balcony while watching Taboo so you can further enjoy the experience.
Brought to you by the City of Dreams and the creator of The House of Dancing Water (that I missed because I left a day earlier than the entire group), Taboo is all about playing with your senses through a diverse range of intense performances by such talented artists from around the world.
There were a lot of singing, dancing and sultry scenes. I’ve never really seen a show like this my whole life and to tell you the truth, it was a bit shocked- okay, not a bit shocked, I was overly shocked (but in a good way) because each and every performance was a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Yes, there were a lot of sensuality during the performances. It was very sensual but never slutty- that’s what I liked most about it. Even if there were a lot of skin and body contacts involved and even if some performances were very provocative, they were all done in a very artsy and classy way. Every performance was done with sophistication. The experience was breathtaking! I wanted to stand up and clap each time a segment would end. No wonder it’s called “The Show of Secret Fantasies”.
My favourite part was the bath tub scene but sadly I won’t be able to share the photos here, you have to see it yourself in person (or you can watch the video here). Of course it wasn’t all about hot bodies and body contact, there were a lot of singing too- and this girl’s voice is just magnificent. Her name is Trenyce and she was part of the Top 5 on American Idol season 2! No wonder her voice is unbelievable!
The fire dance was such a scary and thrilling performance! It’s such a unique show! Taboo tickets range from MOP596-MOP1,200 (P3,200-P6,600) depending on the day you visit and what table you’ll be getting. Seriously though, it truly is a world-class performance and it’s something you’d want to experience yourself. You also get 20% discount on the The House of Dancing Water and Taboo when you buy tickets on both shows.
And that’s it for my first day in Macau! So happy I got to sleep on their soft and huge bed all by myself!
I was depressed during my second day in Macau because I knew I had to leave by noon to go to the airport to catch my afternoon flight because of work in Manila. Again, the trip was still super worth it! I just didn’t want it to end so fast.
After breakfast, we headed to Grand Hyatt Hotel for a tour around their beautiful executive and function rooms. Spot their very very big lobby restaurant!
We went inside the Chairman Suite which is 275 square meters big. It’s amazingly huge and magnificent! There’s a high table and in the kitchen area so you can have a drink or two with your friends.
You have your own gym room too. Exercise while watching tv or while looking out at the magnificent view outside.
Can my bathroom be this big? Not only does it have its own walk in closet, after you take a shower you can go inside the spa room to get a massage. How awesome is this suite?
After touring around their VIP rooms, we had a short chance to check out their function rooms and I was stunned when I saw this wall by the elevators. I know, I know it’s nothing special until….
It opens!!! TADA!!! Yes, that’s a secret room! I felt like I was in a movie when it opened. Seriously, it was so awesome. Just look at everyone on their phones. They all took videos and I’m sure they were too busy sharing it on their social media accounts!
Inside the secret room you’ll see these table and chairs for their guests who want to throw parties and events. It’s still such an amazing venue because all your guests can enter the “secret” door.
