Montecasino first opened its doors on 30 November 2000 and expanded in May 2007 with the addition of the open air Piazza and Teatro.
Montecasino's Piazza, which is slightly smaller than a rugby field and modeled on a typical Italian piazza features several restaurants where visitors can dine al fresco, and enjoy the mesmerizing musical fountain displays. The Piazza also features the SunSquare Hotel, aimed at the modern business tourist, the Montecasino Ballroom which can accommodate 400 people seated banquet style, and the spectacular Teatro at Montecasino, which opened with the legendary stage production 'The Lion King'.
Construction has been completed on a R 700 Million project - 'The Pivot'. The Pivot includes a new hotel, bar and lounge, conference centre, restaurant, outdoor pool and leisure area and a new gym.
