RESORTS World Sentosa (RWS) announced on Tuesday that it will throw open its doors on Jan 20, but those who want to visit the Universal Studios Singapore Theme Park or roll the dice at its casino will have to wait a little longer.

Announcing the highly anticipated opening date yesterday, RWS said that when Jan 20 rolls around, four of its six hotels and 10 restaurants and lounges will begin operations.

The four hotels are the Festive Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel Singapore, Crockfords Tower and Hotel Michael. The restaurants and lounges include modern patisserie Boulangerie on the second level of Festive Hotel and Indian restaurant Rang Mahal on the second level of the Hard Rock Hotel.

The IR's theme park, FestiveWalk - a 500-metre stretch featuring retail outlets, restaurants helmed by celebrity chefs and clubs - and theatre are slated to open within the next two months, RWS spokesman Robin Goh said on Tuesday.

He said the testing of rides has already begun, and added that the theatre is ready for use - it staged its first event, the ChildAid charity concert, late last month.

No firm date was given for when the casino will open, but it is likely to be in the first quarter of the year, according to Mr Goh, who said an application has already been made to Singapore authorities.

From Straits Times, "Sentosa IR hotels to open".

One of Singapore's integrated resorts, Resorts World Sentosa, will begin opening its doors in phases from January 20.

The resort said its four hotels - Crockfords Tower, Hotel Michael, Festive Hotel and Hard Rock Hotel Singapore - will be opened on that day.

Resorts World Sentosa began operations at two of its four hotels on Tuesday, and employees and their families were the resort's main guests before the hotels' public opening.

Resorts World Sentosa's chief executive, Tan Hee Teck, said the phased schedule would allow the resort and its 10,000 employees to run in operations and deliver the expected guest experience.

The integrated resort (IR) said it is working closely with the authorities to obtain approvals for Universal Studios Singapore, which will open next.

As for the casino's opening date, it will be announced when the IR gets notice of its casino licence.

Together, the four hotels offer a combined inventory of 1,350 rooms and 10 restaurant outlets at their opening.

Another two hotels at the resort - Equarius Hotel and Spa Villas - will add another 500 rooms when they are launched in phase two after this year.

The IR will also open the world's largest Marine Life Park and its Maritime Experiential Museum in the second phase.
