Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16

The Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16 is different from the slew of other five-star hotel/casinos in the SAR - both in style and location.

The Overview

The Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16 eschews the gaudy and neon-flooded looks of its competitors for a somewhat kooky faux-colonial look. This façade, the owners say, is more in keeping with the surrounding area of the city's historic Inner Harbor, although the gigantic, glittering disco ball at the entrance to the adjoining casino seems a little at odds with the overall design - and the sole concession to glitz.

The 20-story hotel/casino has 389 well-appointed rooms and suites, while set apart from the main building is the The Mansion at Sofitel, with 19 apartments  (225 square meters each) designed to keep the casino's high rollers feathered in luxury between stints at the gaming tables. If your wallet doesn't qualify you for an apartment at The Mansion, opt for a harbor-view room or suite, for romantic vistas across a narrow section of the harbor to Zhuhai in China.
