New for Macao
MACAO continues to grow as an action-packed holiday destination with every new hotel and attraction built across the city-state. Recent months have seen the expansion of the Galaxy precinct along with the debut of the lavish 400-room St Regis Macao hotel with its exclusive Iridium day spa and spectacular views of the Cotai Strip.
Later this year Macao will see some major new developments including the Parisian hotel boasting more than 2,900 rooms and a replica half-size Eiffel Tower which will sit at the hotel’s entrance. The tower is tipped to become a huge drawcard for the peninsula featuring observation decks with views to China’s mainland and a gourmet restaurant.
Another exciting development for both kids and kids at heart is the world’s first player-centric “Live Action Role Play” theme park. Set to open this month, Planet J theme park at Sands Cotai Central is an indoor fantasy world where players can physically act out fantasy characters in a virtual setting. Everyone who plays is armed with a ’magic scroll’; a personalised mobile app connecting to over 200 games across the park.
