Sands Cotai Central celebrates five spectacular years

As Sands Cotai Central celebrates its fifth birthday, the epic stage show Monkey King launches, while Planet J takes visitors on a unique role-playing adventure

This April marks the fifth anniversary of the opening of the iconic Sands Cotai Central (SCC) resort, which has expanded in several stages. Its first phase included the Conrad Macao, Cotai Central and Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central, and opened in 2012 with a spectacular firework show that lit the skies.

Other live performances that night included memorable lion dancing and a highwire act that walked more than half a kilometre, 150 metres above the ground.


SCC celebrated its second phase with the opening of the Sheraton Macao, Cotai Central later that year, and with a star-studded party attended by celebrities such as Zhang Ziyi and Louis Koo. The hotel has since been elevated to the status of Sheraton Grand Macao.

In 2015, SCC marked its third phase with the opening of The St. Regis Macao, Cotai Central, one of Macao’s most prestigious luxury hotels.

Today, the SCC’s four hotels offer visitors a wide selection of rooms and suites, enticing dining choices and exciting entertainment. SCC also has the finest luxury duty-free shopping, with more than 150 boutiques and galleries at Shoppes at Cotai Central, and over 850 retail outlets at Shoppes at Venetian and Shoppes at
Parisian, Sands Shoppes.

SCC has welcomed millions of visitors over the past five years. It is home to the many Dreamworks Experience activities and the spectacular Monkey King has won rave reviews at Sands Cotai Theatre. Meanwhile, Planet J’s cutting-edge role-playing world takes family entertainment to an exciting new level.
