Exploring Resorts World Sentosa


Here are some of the photos we took while exploring the sprawling ground of Resorts World Sentosa.

Since our visit took place close to Singapore's National Day, the resort was decorated to mark the occasion. This board located not far away from the casino's entrance, displayed drawings by children celebrating the event.

Public art installations like this colourful butterfly can be found littered around the same area. Visitors can rest their tired legs, sitting on the bench while admiring such artworks.

At the Festive Walk area was this large fountain called the Lake of Dreams.

Here's another shot of the fountain from further away. Note the many pyramids incorporated into its design. Must be the work of the Illuminati again, blatantly hiding such images in public places! Not content with making Santa Claus Hari Raya ads on TV3, they had taken over Singapore as well.

I like how the surroundings were distorted & reflected on this gigantic sphere. Also, it gives new meaning to the phrase 'balls of steel'.

Situated further up was a reproduction of Auguste Rodin's famous sculpture, The Thinker. A man in serious thought sitting on a throne, with water gushing all around. Doesn't it reminds you of the toilet?

Look at the intricate patterns of the roof.

Inside one of the hotel's lobby (I had forgotten which one), we found this cute sculpture entitled 'Adam & Eve'. I think this is what Adam & Eve will end up looking like if the Garden of Eden was in America and they spend their time gorging on hamburgers instead of apples.

The posh shopping area connecting the hotels.

In front of the hotel lobby, we saw this majestic Rolls Royce Phantom. I have yet to see one in Malaysia. Unfortunately, the only person able to afford this, our Agong prefers to ride in a Maybach.

Following the signages, we arrived at the beautifully landscaped pool of Hard Rock Hotel. Many hotel guests were seen frolicking at the man made beach.

I particularly liked this private little corner where you can soak yourself in peace, away from the screaming kids.

Singaporean flags were hung from every balcony of the hotel, reminding me of similiar sights at the government flats in our country.

This being a Hard Rock Hotel, there was a wall dedicated to showcase memorabilia from the stars. I was excited to see two items from one of my favourite bands of all time, Oasis. First, a sparkle finish Dan Electro guitar owned & signed by Noel Gallagher.

And an autographed Manchester City jersey by Noel as well. Too bad he supported the wrong side of Manchester though.

Away from the hotel, this is the grand entrance into Universal Studios Singapore. We actually went there a day early to purchase our tickets, as we heard they were sometimes sold out during peak days.

We also spotted this. What? Resorts World Singapore closing down already?

RWS is really crowded, with the familiar g.highlands uncle and auntie faces missing from MBS, lol. I guess MBS is designed with the high rollers in mind.

acura said...

Bernard: Yup, back for now ;)

Rachel: Sure la, cause some of them were taken by you.

Quirky Malaysia: I saw a long line of parked Bas Persiaran at the resort's car park, no doubt to ferry aunties & uncles to the casino.
