Special packages for hotel rooms at Resorts World Sentosa

Tour agents in Singapore are launching special packages for hotel stays at Resorts World Sentosa, which is slated to open on January 20.

Reservations for the hotel rooms at the integrated resort will open only on January 11 at 10am. However, the integrated resort said it has received hundreds of calls on its reservations hotline.

Travel agents said while they are targeting markets like the US and the UK, their main focus will be visitors from around the region – including Indonesia, Hong Kong and China.

Other travel agents said they are offering hotel stays at Resorts World as part of a regional tour package to places like Malaysia, Bintan and Batam.

Alicia Seah, senior vice-president, Marketing and PR, Commonwealth Travel Service, said: “We are expecting families, leisure travellers as well as business travellers, who are holding their incentive trips here in Singapore.”

Moreover, those early birds who do not mind the fact that the casino will not be ready until late January will get 30 to 40 per cent off the travel deals.

Judy Lam, group vice-president, Sales & Marketing, Tour East, said: “The pre-opening packages can start from S$200 to S$300 for either a two-night package or a three nights’ package. The actual opening packages would start from about S$500.”

During the soft launch, room rates at Resorts World’s three hotels – Hotel Michael, Festive Hotel and Hard Rock Hotel – are likely to range between S$400 per night for a regular deluxe room and S$3,000 for the presidential suite.
