Staycation at Resorts World Sentosa Festive Hotel (Part 3)

On the second day, we went to the swimming pool in Hard Rock Hotel. Thanks to my friends’ recommendations, otherwise I could have missed this wonderful pool in RWS.

Day or night, the swimming pool in Hard Rock Hotel is stunning. It has an artificial beach area with swaying trees, just next to the adult pool. There is also a water slide, lap pool, kids splash zone, private cabanas and undercover spa.

The sand is soft white and exceptionally clean. I heard that it was specially imported from Australia! Little Edison squealed with delight as he dug into the sand with his shovel and pail.

Here are some pictures to share:

The man-made beach with sand and swaying trees. Nice!

I just realized that I didn’t take any pictures of myself here. :p

Festive Hotel has a lap pool, a baby wading pool and a waterplay area for children. Hotel guests can also relax in one of the eight cabanas with food and drinks.

Little Edison had great fun swimming in the wading pool. At the end of the day, he was totally wiped out.

We had our dinner at Fiesta in Festive Hotel. The highlight of their buffet dinner is the barbecued items – tiger prawns, barbecued squid, chicken wing, sirloin steak and stingray.

Absolutely delicious BBQ seafood and meat!

What I like most is the ambience – it was cosy and nice. The sofa seats were comfortable, table arrangements were perfect (spacious and not too close to the next table) and the lightning was beautiful too.

Nice Ambience!

I was impressed by the good service from their staffs. They were polite and prompt in clearing used plates and utensils. There was also a live music performance. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience in a 5-star hotel (although it’s more on the pricey side).

Staycation at Resorts World Sentosa Festive Hotel (Part 1)

We reached Festive Hotel at about 3pm and waited for ten minutes to check-in. There are only two check-in counters available. The lounge and reception is quite small, I can’t imagine what will happen when a tour group checks-in with so many visitors and tones of luggage.

All the children are given a goody pack (toys and games in a pouch) upon arrival. There is also a children area in the lounge with a big TV showing cartoon. Interesting idea indeed, it keeps the children entertained while the adults are checking-in.

This is how the Deluxe Family King Room in Festive Hotel looks like…

The King-Sized Bed

The room is clean, bright and cheery with large orchid motifs (more on Asian taste). It has a king-sized bed, a children loft bed and a sofa bed that can be folds out as a double bed.

Room Decoration

The highlight of the room is definitely the children loft bed. I’m sure all the kids will love it, including our Little Edison who is always busy climbing up and down from the loft bed. It’s actually quite comfortable with padded walls, pillows and comforter for children.

The balcony is very spacious and it has a beautiful pool view. Tips: Not all the rooms have pool view. You have to request for it during booking.

The hotel also prepared a complimentary birthday cake for Little Edison and he was simply thrilled.

There is a bathtub in the bathroom. The hotel provides slippers, toothbrush, shower gel, shampoo, shower cap, tea, coffee and complimentary bottled water. There is also an ice-machine and a snack machine on every floor.

Bathroom

Our package comes with a $25 RWS gift voucher, daily breakfast for two adults, welcome drinks, two one-day adult passes to Universal Studios Singapore, complimentary car parking and complimentary entry to Sentosa.

The breakfast is at Fiesta. I would say that the selection of food is good for both adults and children but quite limited in variety.
