Encore: Diamonds Are Forever

Long day of driving and getting settled here capped of with a quick jaunt around Encore's exterior and as far as a non "Gold Card" holder can go on the inside. In a word... what i've seen is exquisite execution of design, thematically liked like a big crazy Beethoven concerto.

Some of you may remember when the name "Wynn Diamond Suites" was tossed around for the Wynn Macau Expansion, which was eventually just called Encore Suites at Wynn Macau.

The "diamond" shape - for my money - is Encore's thematic equivalent of "dah dah dah DAAAAAAAH" aka Beethoven's 5th (or a 'Fifth of Beethoven' depending on your decade of reference). Interleaved diamond shapes, cut mirrored mosaics as "windows" within diamond shaped latticed ceiling frames, diamond pattern pillar tile work, diamond patterns in the carpeting, on the walls, on pillars outside of the resorts porte cochere... on and on and on. It's freaking nuts.

Here's a coupla photos I took tonight to help illustrate.

That's the carpet reflected in mirrors on the ceiling.

And a coupla beauty shots:.

Tomorrow morning at 11am, I'm going on a pre-opening tour of Encore (Hunter and Dave Schwartz too!). Posting and twittering galore tomorrow afternoon.
