Singapore’s two Integrated Resorts (IRs), namely the Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa. An IR is a Singaporean euphemism for a casino-based vacation resort. Alas, the IRs don’t revolve solely around gambling. Besides being the first casinos in a country more well-known for her conservative culture, the IRs aim to offer a complete lifestyle experience – everything from wholesome entertainment to luxurious stays.
The IRs have literally transformed the landscape of the Sentosa and Marina Bay areas. Besides being must-see tourist destinations, they will become important centres for huge conventions and meetings. Serious business people can choose from various indoor or outdoor venues for small or large conferences and corporate retreats.
With attractions like the Universal Studios Theme Park at the Resorts World Sentosa and the 200m high Sands Sky Park, the IRs certainly deliver on the entertainment front. Shopaholics will delight at the beautifully-crafted The Shoppes at the Marina Bay Sands, offering all your favourite luxury and high-end labels. At the Resorts World Sentosa, choose from over 45 retail and 63 food & beverage outlets.
The iconic cascading towers blend excellently into the city backdrop. There is a skypark sitting atop the towers, where visitors can enjoy an unobstructed 360 degree view of Singapore, including the city skyline.
