The '5 Millionth Guest'

The family of five from North India, have enjoyed staying at Sheraton hotels in other parts of the world. That is why they chose Sheraton Macao Hotel for their daughter's 10th birthday celebration on their first visit to Macao.

Sharanya's mother, Ms. Shruti Bajpai said: "We chose the Sheraton brand because we really enjoyed our stay with the Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel and Towers in Dubai.  My children were bouncing off the walls when they found out about all the activities that are available here in Macao, especially the DreamWorks attractions. They can't wait to try the Kung Fu Panda Academy and the chance to meet all of the DreamWorks characters. It's an honor to be the 'five millionth guest', and we are so excited to be celebrating our daughter's birthday here."

Daniella Tonetto, General Manager of Sales and Marketing, Sheraton Macao Hotel, Cotai Central and The St. Regis Macao, Cotai Central added, "We're so happy to welcome Sharanya Trivedi on her 10th birthday as our 'five millionth guest' along with her family.  This is a very special occasion for their entire family and we're thrilled to be able to celebrate along with them. We hope that they also enjoy all of the new summer offerings we have for them as well as the new Kung Fu Panda Academy which we just launched over the weekend."
