Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16.



Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16.

Location is often touted has an asset for an attraction. At the Sofitel Macau, location is indeed one of the numerous reasons to visit this fine hotel. Celebrating Macau mixed cultural heritage, the Sofitel Macau uniquely blends cultural styles to create a visual ambience complete with classic Portuguese architecture, traditional Chinese design and complimented with contemporary French design. The 5-star Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16 sits gracefully on the waterfront of Macau Inner Harbor and features a multi-entertainment complex, restaurants, and leisure facilities for all ages. Located in the historic city centre, it is just a short distance from the Ruins of St Paul, A Ma Temple and Macau Tower, to name a few of the nearby cultural and historical attractions. Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16 has been developed by Pier 16 Resort Hotel Management Limited and the hotel is part of an $400 million investment that also includes a casino, retail and restaurant venues and entertainment complex.

The hotel is one of Macau’s most prestigious deluxe hotels. Built around the remaining façade of Pier 16, the 20-story Sofitel Macau has 408 rooms, all with the famously comfortable Sofitel’s “MyBed.” The delightful cuisine at Mistral restaurant is a must with outdoor seating on Le Terrace overlooking the Pool and Macau’s inner harbor. Stopping for round of drinks at the Rendezvous Lounge before having dinner at Sofitel’s Prive restaurant is the best way to start the night.




A Blending of Inspirations.

Jean-Francois Nulli is the sous chef at the intimate French restaurant Privé. Chef Nulli describes the whole restaurant as his personal chef’s table.  “I make the effort to chat to the guests. People like it when the chef comes and asks them how they enjoyed the meal,” Nulli tell the South China Morning Post. The restaurant which seats a maximum of 24 people, offers a variety of à la carte dishes which are enhanced by a selection of tasting menus and tableside classics.
For business travelers and luxury lovers, the Club Sofitel floors offer added incentives and comforts and The Mansion at Sofitel is designed with the pampering of the casinos high rollers in mind.

The Ponte 16 is located in the Inner Harbor of Macau’s Pier 16, one of the oldest financial hubs in Macau, and the location is easily accessible from any part of the island. Guests are offered a choice of panoramic city views or river views when staying at the Sofitel Macau. I chose the river view that overlooked China, and the harbor below full of activity, with small boats bringing workers and merchants complete with their wares to Macau for the day. The intimate touch of French elegance and the refined decor is uplifting in all the guestrooms. Whether you choose to stay in the superior rooms or you select a luxury rooms or prestige suite, you will enjoy a high-level of comfort and style.

When booking a trip to Macau, this hotel is a must-visit, and you will most certainly relish your quick immersion into the lively streets of Macau just outside your door. Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16.
