Sofitel Ponte 16

Just came back from a 4-days-3-nights free & easy weekend get away excursion to Macau and Hong Kong, now is the time for some updates!

Our initial flight supposed to be 9.25am. 3 weeks before departure, we received a text from Air Asia informing that our flight had been cancelled. Considering that we left very little time spent in Macau & Hong Kong, we requested to change for an earlier flight.

We reached Macau Airport at Taipa around 9am, which were 15mins earlier than the original itinerary.

Being new to this place, we decided not to waste time and pay MOP150 to charter a van to send us to Hotel Sofitel Ponte 16. The local Chinese generally call it as 16浦 (Ponte 16) instead of Sofitel. The traffic was smooth and it took less than 30 min to arrive.

Upon our request, we were given a none-smoking room on 15th floor. We could see the colorful Grand Lisboa glittering away from our room.

Splendid city view from our room

Our room was tastefully decorated with ultra-modern and brand new furnitures.
The king-size bed was truly comfortable Writing desk 37" LCD Flat TVToilet and shower were separate cubicles that made of glass. Besides, the bathroom was also facilitated with huge bathtub & remote LCD TV. The quality amenities from L'Occitane was Moon's favorite. She liked it so much that she packed everything into her toiletries' bag on the day we bid farewell to Sofitel Ponte 16. ;-PApart from the beautiful interior, the hotel itself is just a stone thrown from Senado Square and Ruins of St Paul's whereby heaps of eateries and shops are accessible on foot across the street. If you are looking for a less busy hotel for relaxaion, Sofitel Ponte 16 is no doubt an ideal choice for you! ;-)
