The eagerly awaited opening of the Marina Bay Sands integrated resort occurred at precisely 3:18pm on April 27th 2010. At this feng shui approved time, Las Vegas Sands chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson officially welcomed the first guests to the stunning US$5.5 billion casino resort project.
Marina Bay Sands is the second of the two integrated resorts approved by the Singapore authorities. This first phase includes the Casino, almost 1,000 hotel rooms, parts of the shopping mall and a convention centre, restaurants, bars and the Event Plaza along Marina Bay. The official Grand Opening will take place on 23rd June, at which time the remainder of the property’s 2,560 guest rooms, more shops, additional dining options, and the much-lauded 60-story building-spanning SkyPark will debut.
The magnificent centrepiece casino is a multi-level space surrounded by galleries in an oval enclosure. Overlooking the casino from the upper galleries is the exclusive Paiza Club for premium players.
