RESORTS WORLD SENTOSA
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
