Originally a fortress built by the Portuguese in the early 17th century to defend Macao against hostile European nations and local pirates, the Fortaleza de Barra was transformed into an enchanting Portuguese boutique hotel known today as Pousada de São Tiago. This all suite hotel is one of Macao’s most charming and exclusive historical landmarks, and has recently been invited to be a member of Relais & Châteaux, an association of the finest and most unique hotels and gourmet restaurants across the globe. All suites are decorated with plush and quality furnishings to provide exquisite comfort for guests. In-room amenities include a 40 inches B&O television with surround sound effect, a modern lush bathroom with 60cm rainforest shower, steam room and “in mirror” bathroom TV. Guests can also enjoy complimentary in-room movies, free mini bar and internet access. The hotel's La Paloma Spanish restaurant offers signature dishes such as Iberian Ham and Paella Valenciana.
