Rasa Sentosa Resort, Singapore has been re-branded as Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort, Singapore after a complete S$80 million makeover. The resort has just re-opened today at 8:18 a.m. – an auspicious hour – in time for the Lunar New Year, the 10-month facelift is the resort’s most extensive to date.
The only resort in Singapore with a beachfront location, Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort, Singapore offers services and facilities catering to leisure and business travellers.
Rooms feature views of the hill, garden, pool or sea, with a balcony in each room for guests to enjoy the lush natural surroundings. The number of rooms has been reduced from 459 to 454 rooms and range in size from 31 square metres for a deluxe room to 150 square metres for the Sentosa suite. Rooms are designed specifically to suit the different needs of travellers. Guests with children can check into a larger Family Room instead of having two connecting rooms. Honeymooners can choose to stay in the Panorama Room with an open concept bathroom that looks out to views of the South China Sea or a Deluxe Seaview Suite, each with its own private outdoor Jacuzzi.
The rooms are furnished in soothing accents of green and beige to complement the resort’s lush and natural environment with wood as the predominant material used throughout the room design. Displayed prominently above the head of the bed is the floral carving and the leaf motifs that run across the bedding
