Business Traveler (USA) - - DESTINATIONS -

When large groups – par­tic­u­larly from sales com­pa­nies – come to Sin­ga­pore, one of the most pop­u­lar choices for mem­o­rable events is Re­sorts World Sen­tosa. Since open­ing in 2010, it has won the hearts of in­cen­tive spe­cial­ists and cor­po­rate groups thanks to its spec­tac­u­lar fa­cil­i­ties. These in­clude the Sea Aquar­ium, which is home to more than 100,000 ma­rine crea­tures from over 800 species. Din­ners and re­cep­tions can be ar­ranged in the aquar­ium view­ing area.

Univer­sal Stu­dios is an­other fun stop to in­clude on itin­er­ar­ies. The world fa­mous theme park has a va­ri­ety of venues which are avail­able for events, and ar­range­ments can be made for buy­outs of spe­cific zones, or even the en­tire park, with cus­tom­ized menus and en­ter­tain­ment.

Cov­er­ing 121 acres, Re­sorts World Sen­tosa can ac­com­mo­date 35,000 guests at any one time. The 65,000-square-foot free span ball­room has room for 6,500 guests theatre-style and can be di­vided into three smaller spa­ces or nine halls.

There are also 21 func­tion rooms of­fer­ing a com­bined area of 30,000 square feet, as well as sev­eral ho­tels, in­clud­ing the Hard Rock, which has 364 gue­strooms and five func­tion venues, and the 172-room Equar­ius ho­tel, with seven ban­quet spa­ces.

A re­cent ad­di­tion to the Re­sorts World megaplex is the stun­ning Royal Al­ba­tross, the only lux­ury tall ship of its kind avail­able for char­ter in Asia. It had its of­fi­cial launch in 2015 and is berthed next to the Ad­ven­ture Cove Wa­ter Park.

The 155-foot-long, four-mast su­pery­acht has a sail­ing ca­pac­ity of 130 guests for events, and of­fers two bars, three stages and gourmet cater­ing. Team­build­ing op­tions in­clude sail­ing and climb­ing rigs de­signed by Jim Barry, who worked on Pi­rates of the Caribbean films. BT
