The real estate market in Macau is full of surprises and peculiarities. Picking a place to settle can be often difficult, especially if you are new in Macau and don’t know much the properties here. To help you decide, we prepared a special guide about one of the most popular and nicest apartment complexes in the city, One Oasis.
One Oasis is definitely the perfect name for this residential ensemble. Located between Taipa and Coloane, it is away from the hustle and bustle of the city. If peacefulness and fresh air is more essential to you than the listening to the noisy heartbeat of the city, keep reading.
Seac Pai Van Park One of the undeniable advantages of living in One Oasis is the neighboring Seac Pai Van Park and Coloane Hills. Home to four local celebrities who take the form of a tetrad of adorable panda bears, this park attracts tourists from all around the world. It’s MOP $20 for an hour-long visit, which is sure to brighten the moodiest day. No one has ever frowned at four fluffy clumsy pandas munching on bamboo.
Coloane hills What is probably the best hiking spot in the whole of Macau is just across the road for One Oasis residents. Choose Coloane trail, fitness trail or combine them all. Take a hike or jog all the way up to A-ma cultural village, then head down to Hac Sa or Cheoc Van for a swim.
Coloane village This village is a 15-minute walk – or two bus stops – away. Besides beautiful temples, a picturesque promenade and cozy cafes, there are quaint little grocery stalls with fresh fruit, veggies, and eggs to check out. If you are walking from the main square of the village, we recommend the second stall. The vendor there speaks English, is generally very friendly, smiley and will give you some extra greens whether you want them or not.
CLUBHOUSE AND OTHER FACILITIES
One Oasis clubhouse This spacious and well-equipped clubhouse has all the machines and tools you could possibly think of. After an intense session, head to the indoor or infinity outdoor pool, soak in a jacuzzi or relax in the sauna.
Spa La Boutique Spa specializes in holistic treatments and provides a whole range of services from massage to facials.
CrossFit Are you a CrossFit addict yet? It’s been taking the world by storm and One Oasis has a community of CrossFitters led by certified and awarded coach Antonio Barrias and his team. When you have a leader like him, workout buddies to keep you motivated and a location right next to your house, there is just no excuse to stay on the sofa.
Fun for kids Circus land and Castle Kingdom are fun and colorful rooms for kids of all ages with slides, caves and exciting things for endless adventures. Check out some other indoor havens for kids to have fun in Macau here.
The Veranda Macau is full of amazing places to eat and drink, but sometimes you just don’t feel like taking a ride or a long walk to enjoy them. Fortunately, One Oasis has the Veranda, a cozy European-like space with cafes, restaurants, and bars.
Jak’s This is a nice little restaurant with delicious European cuisine and a warm atmosphere. Dining here is like being in a friend’s cool living room – you’re surrounded by leather chairs and endless shelves of books.
