With a man-made beach and huge, free-form pool and the SEA Aquarium, Adventure Cove and Universal Studios within walking distance, even the most demanding of families will be entertained at Hard Rock Hotel Singapore. There are also personalised experiences for children – A guided day-tour of the SEA Aquarium for children and the daily Kids Club.

For the best hotel experience…ask the concierge to help you plan an ultimate fun-filled family weekend at the Resorts World Sentosa! Upon check-in, advise the concierge what your family loves to do and the HRH Singapore concierge team will give you plenty of activity suggestions, help with anything that needs booking, and, as is standard at the international luxury hotel chain, go out of their way to ensure a comfortable stay.

Beach Villas – Ocean Suites

You don’t have to be a marine life aficionado to find the spectacular underwater view of marine fishes right outside your window breathtaking. Who better than to share the rare experience of staying underwater in an automatically dimmed bedroom than your partner? The spacious Ocean Suites are 93 sqm large and features a king-sized bed and Jacuzzi bathtub. There are only 11 two-storey suites, so be sure to book in advance!

For the best hotel experience…make use of your complimentary day access to ESPA which includes use of Rock Saunas and Outdoor Vitality Pools. Something extra relaxing and private? Book a couples treatment.

Best restaurants for every type of traveller

Families

Sessions – 3-in-1 dining…what’s that? Sessions is a café full of sweet treats, a seafood area that specialises in crab dishes, and an interactive space for guests to cook with chefs! Families can book their little ones into a baking course, and anyone binge watching MasterChef can signup for a course on how to prepare a multiple-course fine-dining menu! Weekenders should try the weekend buffet or Sunday brunch! Located at Hard Rock Hotel Singapore.

Hard Rock Cafe Sentosa – this classic needs no explaining, but we can reiterate how this place is what childhood memories are made of? Does dad collect pins? Does mum love the spinach artichoke dip? And does everyone love tucking into the hot fudge brownie together? Sounds like the stage table is set for everyone to have a rockin’ time! Located at The Forum.

Individuals

The Rock Bar – Great for people watching, plus you’re obliged to strike up conversations with the staff – each server and bartender has the name of their favourite musician on their name tag. Great cocktails and music by the poolside – what more could one need? Located at Hard Rock Hotel Singapore.

Groups of friends

Din Tai Fung – because everyone’s just so much happier after dim sum. Whether it’s after a long night at The Rock Bar and the through of xiao long bao sounds divine, or you’re a bunch of foodies that love to do weekend brunch, this Michelin stared Taiwanese restaurant is steamed chicken soup for the soul. Located at The Forum.
