Sited on the island of Sentosa, Resorts World Sentosa is a 49ha integrated resort that boasts a range of hotels, entertainment and recreation developments including Universal Studios Singapore, a gaming facility, MICE spaces, and a plethora of retail and F&B outlets. The aquatic-themed West Zone encompasses the latest attractions on the island and is designed to blend with its natural surroundings while acting as a complementary programme to the existing resort.
Marine Life Park offers two key attractions at its ‘wet experience’ and ‘dry experience’. The former is Adventure Cove Waterpark which includes a 620m-long adventure river that meanders through the site. It also incorporates several attractions for viewing and interacting with sea animals, such as Rainbow Reef where guests can snorkel with coral fishes, and immersive programmes at the Ray Bay where guests can feed more than a hundred rays, as well as get up-close with sharks at Shark Encounter.
Maritime Experiential Museum provides a variety of experiences with a multi-sensory theatre for interactive learning. The building form itself is highly unique and resembles an upturned boat hull. Attached to the museum, the underwater journey of S.E.A. Aquarium follows the oceans and seas along the Maritime Silk Route. S.E.A. Aquarium is officially the world’s largest aquarium with more than 800 species of marine animals and aims to educate and enrich the understanding of the oceans. The centerpiece of the aquarium is the Open Ocean habitat tank, which has the world’s largest acrylic viewing panel.
Apart from the numerous attractions, West Zone also offers unique hospitality amenities. The Equarius Hotel has 172 guestrooms that overlook Marine Life Park to the north and Sentosa’s natural tropical forest to the south. Carefully situated on the western end away from the bustle of the main resort are the Beach Villas hotel and ESPA: Beach Villas comprises 11 unique Ocean Suites that take advantage of their adjacency to the Open Ocean habitat of the S.E.A. Aquarium, while ESPA is a wellness sanctuary that offers guests a luxurious range of treatment pavilions, private beach villas and garden spa suites designed for total relaxation. Two exclusive loft suites, known as the TreeTop Lofts, are nestled in a canopy of heritage trees and offer a truly unique experience of being fully immersed in nature while having the luxurious comforts of a top resort.
As the final stage of the Resorts World Sentosa development, West Zone offers an amplification of what makes the integrated resort so exciting – a wide range of family-friendly leisure and entertainment options that are truly unique in Singapore. While the existing Central Zone and Universal Studios Singapore bring world-class amenities and attractions, West Zone’s aquatic theme brings a combination of edu-tainment, leisure, hospitality and resort-style amenities to what is already one of Singapore’s most exciting and diverse attractions.
