Following the completion of a $50 million makeover the Rasa Sentosa Resort will be renamed Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort.

Ogie R. Manuel, Director of Sales & Marketing said the all new and improved hotel will cater to both business and leisure guests.

The resort renovations, which began in March, include a full revamp of guestrooms and facilities, including the swimming pool, the gym, the spa, the children’s club, food and beverage outlets and function rooms.

Following the renovations, the resort will reduce its room inventory from 459 to 454 rooms and revise its room types to better cater to the needs of different groups of travellers.

For example, a guest travelling with children can book a larger family room with child-friendly facilities and extra luggage space, while a couple on their honeymoon can check into a corner room featuring an open concept bathroom with panoramic sea views.

Business travellers will be able to make use of the resorts newly refurbished function rooms, which will feature a new stage, lighting, soundproof double walls and the latest equipment.

Guests can also expect more dining choices with a brand new three-in-one dining concept that features an all-day buffet outlet with live cooking stations, a Chinese noodle house and a casserole section.

The hotel will also feature a dedicated juice bar and a stand-alone bar where guests can enjoy live entertainment over cocktails.

The façade of the resort will also be improved with a lush landscape and a new porte cochère in the lobby area. A grand staircase will lead from the ground floor up to the reception area on level five.

Boasting the only beachfront address on Sentosa Island, the resort enjoys close proximity to mainland Singapore, which is conveniently linked by a causeway.

In addition to numerous island attractions and VivoCity - one of the largest shopping malls in Singapore - the resort is also minutes away from Southeast Asia's first Universal Studios.

The project is targeted for completion in early 2011, after which Rasa Sentosa Resort, Singapore will officially re-open as Shangri-La's Rasa Sentosa Resort.
