Resorts World Sentosa Chinese New Year 2013

Resorts World Sentosa is celebrating its fourth Lunar New Year since its opening in February 2010 and will once again be abuzz with festivities as it welcomes the year of the Snake. Singapore’s first integrated resort, which celebrated its Grand Opening last month, will be decked out in festive decorations throughout the Lunar New Year, whilst key attractions Universal Studios Singapore and  Marine Life Park will  line up special offerings, including  ang pow giveaways at Southeast Asia’s premier theme park and extended opening hours at the S.E.A. Aquarium.

Key highlights of this year’s festive decorations include two huge topiary snakes which  form the centerpiece of FestiveWalk, dancing alongside a golden dragon, blessing guests with harmony and prosperity while ushering in the Lunar New Year. Drums of Joy (欢腾蛇鼓) and lucky charms with snake motif will also deck out FestiveWalk, The Forum, and The Bull Ring to bring forth the festivities with well-wishes for visitors.

Universal Studios Singapore and Marine Life Park

Visitors to Universal Studios Singapore will be greeted with a special red packet giveaway during eight days of auspicious cheers from 9 to 16 February 2013. Guests will stand a chance to win prizes including  Annual Pass  giveaways  and  discounts on Annual Pass upgrades; Universal Studios Singapore Day Pass giveaways and discount on online purchase of  Day Pass; Universal Express giveaways and discounts on Universal Express; as well as complimentary Incanto tickets.

For the very first time, selected characters at the theme park – Woody, Winnie and Elmo – will also don customised Chinese New Year costumes, greeting park guests with well wishes. Guests can also look forward to the  Hollywood Dreams Parade every weekend. The park will extend its opening hours to 10.00am to 8.00pm every Saturday, starting from 9 February 2013, allowing guests to end their day  in splendour with  Lake Hollywood Spectacular, a pyrotechnic display held  on  every Saturday at 7.30pm.

Lunar New Year F&B Delights

Lunar New Year will never be complete without festive delights. To herald the festivities, guests can
look forward to delectable reunion dining options for the entire family. For the first time, Forest 森, helmed by celebrity Chef Sam Leong, will offer two special reunion set dinners and a seven-course Reunion Deluxe Tasting Menu serving Chinese cuisine infused with Thai elements.

Satisfying differing taste palates, guests will  also  be spoilt for choice with  a gamut of the most extravagant Cantonese cuisine and festive goodies at Feng Shui Inn in Crockfords Tower as well as two Lunar New Year menus at Hollywood China Bistro in Universal Studios Singapore, on top of the extensive dinner buffet at Starz Restaurant in Hard Rock Hotel, Singapore.

The traditional dish of abundance – ‘Lo Hei’ (捞起/鱼生) – will feature prominently on the festive menu too. Chefs at Feng Shui Inn have created the Flambé Salmon ‘Lo Hei’ – a medley of refreshing flavours and colours combined with thinly sliced fresh salmon infused with Chinese wine, presented in a colourful orangey burst of flames. For those yearning for something lighter, they can also opt for a new unique vegetarian creation filled with healthy greens and fresh fruits such as dragon fruits, kiwis and strawberries — Vegetarian ‘Lo Hei’.

Special arrangements have also been made for public transportation at the Resort during the festive period. RWS 8 will extend its service from 11.45pm to 2am (outbound to Vivo City only) on Lunar New Year’s Eve (9 February 2013). During the first three days of Lunar New Year (10 to 12 February 2013), the frequency of RWS 8 will also be ramped up to four-five minutes interval between 11am and 11.45pm.
