Originally a fortress built by the Portuguese in the early 17th century to defend Macau against hostile European nations and local pirates, the Fortaleza de Barra was transformed into an enchanting Portuguese hotel known today as Pousada de São Tiago.

This all suite hotel is one of Macau’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.

Today, Pousada de São Tiago and the Chapel of St. James famously serve as an ideal picturesque destination to celebrate special occasions and weddings in Macau and across Asia.


12 luxurious and exclusive suites overlook the Inner Harbour of Macau and the Pearl River Delta.
