Festive Hotel, Resorts World Sentosa

By
Mar 18, 2019

Festive Hotel scores points with families for the smorgasbord of activities available within a stone’s throw: it’s just steps away from Southeast Asia’s only Universal Studios theme park, S.E.A. Aquarium (one of the world’s largest aquariums) and Adventure Cove Waterpark (where high-speed waterslides and swimming with dolphins and sharks await). Not to mention the kids’ club and a dedicated kids’ pool and wet play area, and a staggering array of dining (from hawker fare to Michelin- star dining), shopping and entertainment options, so there’s always something to do. While all the rooms here are designed with families in mind, our pick is the Deluxe Family room, which comes with tailored bathrobes and a kid-friendly loft bed. — Shamilee Vellu
