Sentosa in Singapore launches new attractions and luxury hotels
2010: The fascinating island of Sentosa in Singapore has launched exciting new attractions to increase the vibrancy and appeal of Asia’s favourite playground. Wave House Sentosa, Megazip Adventure Park, Sentosa Luge and Skyride, Segway Sentosa and Azzura Beach Club are some of the new attractions.
To boost the connectivity between Sentosa and mainland Singapore and cater to the growing island visitorship, the management has also increased the capacity of its popular Sentosa Express monorail and widened road infrastructure.
Singapore’s iconic cable car service has returned after undergoing a complete overhaul. The system now boasts a stunning fleet of 67 metallic black and chrome cabins as well as the world’s First 7* VIP Jewelled Cabin, a Swarovski-encrusted cabin. At the exterior, each cabin is illuminated by Jewel LEDs, creating the effect of sparkling jewels as they zip through the black canvas of the night sky between Mount Faber and Sentosa.
The much anticipated opening of Singapore’s first integrated resort, Resorts World Sentosa, which operates a casino, four hotels, F&B and retail outlets and Singapore’s very own Universal Studios theme park, has also raised the fun factor at Sentosa.
Home to more than 200 attractions, hotels, spa retreats, beach bars, F&B and retail outlets across the island, as well as championship golf courses, a deep-water yachting marina and luxurious residences, Sentosa is going all out to widen its fan base with an exciting lineup for both its guests and trade partners. More room accommodations will be on offer when the Movenpick Sentosa Hotel opens its doors with 181 rooms, while Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort makes a come back with 454 rooms.
Special menus will be introduced specifically for the Indian market and will feature old-time favourites such as Suhki-Sabji Paneer, Tinda Aloo Fish and Bhindi Sambal. The menus will be refreshed every six months.
With a lot more in the pipeline, Sentosa is ready to woo luxury tourists and consumers.
