Resorts World Sentosa opening two new hotels

Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) is slated to open the Equarius Hotel and Beach Villas at its 120-acre mega-resort. The two hotels are expected to “redefine resort-style vacations in Singapore, complete with 360-degree views that take in the waterfront, the harborfront skyline and a tropical rainforest.”

The two hotels are designed and conceptualized by American architectural firm, Michael Graves & Associates, in collaboration with DP Architects Pte Ltd, as well as interior design firms Dpd + Pte Ltd and Diana Simpson Design.

The resort-style architecture of the 172-room Equarius Hotel and 22 exclusive Beach Villas is complemented by foliage provided by a natural forest located at its fringe, as well as 4,000 trees planted by RWS in and around the hotels.

Singapore’s two newest hotels will offer signature RWS VIP services. Facilities include seven meeting rooms, an event pavilion, gym and swimming pool. A new restaurant helmed by celebrity chef Sam Leong will be housed in a glass house located adjacent to the Equarius Hotel Lobby.

In addition to the two new hotels, two treetop lofts above the canopy of the forest and 11 two-story ocean suites situated within the Marine Life Park will be launched at a later date. Still to come also are a destination spa by UK spa brand ESPA, a water theme park and the world’s largest oceanarium - the Marine Life Park.

All six hotels at the resort, including the newly-opened Equarius Hotel and Beach Villas, are owned and operated by RWS, Singapore’s first integrated resort. Spanning 49 hectares, it is home to the region’s first-and-only Universal Studios theme park, a Maritime Experiential Museum and Aquarium, a casino, accommodation in six hotels, the Resorts World Convention Center, celebrity chef restaurants, as well as specialty retail outlets.
