History

Ponte 16 was the first fisherman's port, resplendent in the colonial architecture of the day, a hub of diverse cultural influences. In the mid 1900's, Chinese triads and gangs moved in and the area became known for gambling. The Inner Harbor reigned as the city's economic center up until the 1970s, when commercial activities began to decline with the relocation of the Hong Kong - Macau Ferry Terminal.

Location

Ponte 16 takes it place at the center of the Inner Harbor on the west side of Macau, right at the waters edge. This development is easily accessible by all modes of transportation.

Casino

The casino will offer a selection of gaming machines, gaming tables and endless amusement in an estimated area of 270,000 sq ft.

Hotel

Accor has teamed with Pier 16 - Property Development Limited to bring the Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16 to Macau. As planned the 20-storey five-star hotel will offer 408 rooms, fine restaurants and bars, swimming pools, spa, Kids Room, Gym, wellness center and business center with multi-function conference room.
