Sofitel Luxury Hotels has experienced the largest growth within China's luxury hotel market, with openings in strategic business and leisure centers, including Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Xi'an, Xiamen and Hangzhou.
Sofitel Macau is set to become one of the most prestigious hotels on the south China peninsula. Located adjacent to the new world-class gaming complex, Ponte 16, the 20-story building is just steps away from the historical center of Macau and is listed as a Unesco world heritage site. In true Sofitel fashion, the structure derives inspiration from several cultural influences; its classical Portuguese architecture combines with Chinese design, and finishes with contemporary French style.
Well-being, elegance and refinement are the founding concepts of this new hotel, with amenities, such as the famous MyBed; the promise of a whole new experience of a restful night's sleep; or the concierge service dedicated to the Club Sofitel rooms. It also offers specially designed rooms, such as hotel's elegant mansion suites, appeal to this gaming capital's high-rollers.
Culinary excellence is a priority at Sofitel Luxury Hotels around the world. Sofitel Macau contributes to this standard with a menu incorporating local cuisine with the brand's French heritage. The hotel's restaurant, Le Mistral; its lounge, Le Rendez-vous and Le Vin Bar offer breads, pastries, wines and cheeses, all of which are somewhat rare in Macau. Le Pool Bar is a cozy space for guests to enjoy a cocktail or a healthy range of dishes using fresh local products.

A 4,950 square-foot multi-purpose conference room, business center and breakout meeting rooms are available for business guests. All guests can enjoy the hotel's pool, spa and fitness center.
Sofitel Macau Ponte 16 is located in the heart of the city's inner port neighborhood and is steps from the St Paul ruins and the A Ma Temple. The property was developed to promote the rich cultural heritage of the neighborhood while protecting its rich historical monuments such as the clock tower, the key monument of the district. The Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16 is adjacent to a new casino complex, which includes luxury shops, restaurants and entertainment facilities. A pedestrian walkway (under construction) on the waterfront of Ponte 16 will play host to outdoor shows and other tourist events.
