Although it doesn't always seem true, not everyone travels to Macau for the gaming tables. And for that unique group, there is Pousada de São Tiago. Set away from the action on the scenic tip of the peninsula, this intimate hotel is a reminder of the island's rich Portuguese history. Originally a fortress built in the 1600s, it contains just twelve spacious suites, each with a balcony overlooking the inner harbor and Pearl River Delta. Two restaurants provide an eclectic array of culinary choices: La Paloma, serving Catalonian dishes, and Café da Barra, offering a more casual menu of Portuguese and Macanese cuisine. The intimate outdoor pool enjoys gorgeous views of the harbor, and the eighteenth-century Chapel of St. James adjoins the hotel's reception area and cocktail lounge, making it an ideal wedding setting. Bottom line: if you make only one bet while you're on Macau, a stay at the Pousada is sure to pay off.
