Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa, located on Sentosa Island in Singapore, is an ideal haven for a family vacation. If you’ve been to Sentosa Island, you’ll know.
The resort’s latest addition, a dedicated Baby Zone, provides complimentary baby food for different stages of infancy during lunch and dinner. Other items such as milk bottle sterilisers, hot water, a microwave and baby dining utensils, complete with baby wipes and diapers, provide a hassle-free experience for travelling parents who are in search of this essential baby care.
To enhance family dining experience at the Silver Shell Cafe, one child aged five and below dines free with an accompanying adult during buffets, while 50 per cent of the full buffet price applies for each child aged 11 and below.
Children can splash around at the water slides and children’s pool under a canopy, or the fun splash pad. A water management system is installed to keep the water in the pools in its natural state, where only the minimum statutory amount of chlorine is added, as opposed to four to five chemicals used in a commercial pool.
While adults enjoy time off or indulge in a spa session, children aged five to 12 can enjoy a full day of fun at the Cool Zone. Spanning 100 sqm over two storeys, the Cool Zone encompasses various activity centres and is the largest children’s club provided by a hotel in Singapore. The highlight of the Cool Zone is the giant tree house slide, which winds all the way down from level three of the resort into a pool of colourful balls on level one.
Full-day children’s activity programmes inclusive of lunch and dinner are available for registration. There are at least 10 activities daily and each of these differs from the next day. The little ones will be able to make new friends as they enjoy fun sessions of indoor musical games, scavenger hunt, art and craft, mini putting, island tour, water polo and non-motorised water sports such as kayaks and pedal boats.
Throughout the evening, there will be play time with Wii and Xbox 360. The children also get a go on the Flying Trapeze – the first of its kind in Singapore – and try their hands at being acrobats. On Saturday nights, they are treated to live magic shows and balloon sculpting activities.
Other facilities are also available for children of all ages. The Mini Toots Club caters to children aged four and below who are accompanied by their guardians or parents, while a playground with slides amidst the resort’s landscaped gardens caters to children two to five years old.
The Family Fun Package provides comprehensive fun for families to maximise their holiday experiences. Aside from savings on a la carte spa treatments, it also includes complimentary buffet breakfasts and dinners, complimentary use of water sports facilities and swings on The Flying Trapeze, among other entitlements.
