The Wynn Palace is a magnificent, floral-themed luxury hotel and casino resort located in Cotai, Macau and has been honored as the “Best Luxury Hotel” in Macau by the Annual China Travel Awards. The resort is Steve Wynn’s latest masterpiece and is set in a commanding position in Cotai, Macau’s bustling new tourist hub. The vision and aspiration of Mr. Wynn was to create a new masterpiece that would help launch a new era of prosperity for Macau and attract more international tourists to the city. Wynn Palace is cited by Steve Wynn himself as “arguably the most beautiful hotel in the world.”
The USD $4.2 billion resort took six and a half years to design and build and offers 1,706 exquisitely furnished rooms, suites and villas with numerous personal touches overseen by Steve Wynn. The spa is the largest in Macau and features 22 treatment rooms and the resort’s pool and pool-side restaurant overlook the Performance Lake. The Wynn Palace Esplanade is 18,580 square meters of luxury shopping and is home to more than 50 of the most renowned names in retail.
Targetti worked closely with Wynn Design & Development to provide the ideal accent lighting solutions they needed in the resort restaurants, spa, main casino, junkets, and in a variety of the guest accommodations. The lighting design team focused on utilizing the custom color capabilities and flexibility of Targetti and Duralamp’s multiple LED solutions to deliver, not only consistent lighting and color temperatures throughout each setting, but to also accommodate unique custom lighting that the opulent resort setting required.

The collection of fine dining and casuaI restaurants found throughout the Palace feature Targetti’s high output, LED tape light strips that emit pure, sharp color for unique effects in coves and architectural accents. DuraTape products are used extensively to accent the architectural details seen in these opulent dining areas. Throughout each restaurant setting, even though each is themed differently, the designers choose to remain consistent with the aesthetic of the ceiling coves. They utilized Targetti’s Deluxe Warm White in 2400K, 2700K and 3000K and a custom color created especially for the Wynn Properties called Wynn Rose Gold to accent the ceiling coves that are a main design feature throughout each restaurant.
DuraTape ES in 3000K can be found within the ceiling cove in both Wing Lei Palace main dining area and the adjacent Wing Lei Bar that features an 18-century crystal chandelier valued at more than USD $25 million. DuraTape SB illuminates the bar with under cabinet lighting and accents the bar fascia.
Bearing the initials of Steve Wynn himself, the resort’s steakhouse, SW has a suitably masculine, understated atmosphere Duratape ES provides just the right amount of accent lighting in the ceiling cove with Wynn’s custom color – Wynn Gold Rose. This special colored product was mounted in a custom channel in the ceiling to deliver the ideal thematic accent lighting.
The Palace features over 1,706 exquisitely furnished rooms, suites and villas. The specialty suites and Garden Villas of the Wynn Palace feature DuraTape SB in both the ceiling coves and in a variety of accent details that only a small, flexible tape light solution would work.FEATURES:
The Café Fontana dining room with its unique ceiling treatment utilized Duralum™ to illuminate the ceiling coves. Duralum provides a flexible line voltage LED fixture that features a series of continuous wired LED clusters that bend 90 degrees horizontally and 30 degrees vertically to fit concave and convex curves without the use of any special hardware. With the Café’s décor full of vibrant shades of red, orange, and white, the designers opted to continue to specify a Deluxe Warm White color temperature to accent the ceiling cove.DURATAPE
