hotels at the RWS (Resorts World Sentosa) dont come cheap. S$300+
holiday season means the price comes with a S$100 surcharge (just because they can).
so, you would expect a reasonably big deluxe room, with a bath tub in the bathroom. but nope. no bath tub. a pretty small shower box is all you get.
other than that, no other major complaints, since i dont use room service, nor the bar fridge. i didnt like that the flat screen TV didnt allow me to change the picture ratio. so all the ppl in the shows i watch looked fat. 3 pillows to a bed. awesome!
about the hotel: thumbs up for the 1st hard rock hotel/cafe in Singapore. i like the cafe food and the hard rock memento stuff. (the cafe is not in the hotel, its at the Forum - a sort of melting pot zone connecting up the various bits of the resort). hotel is still a bit under construction but what is working is ok. they hide the bad bits away from the hotel guests.
about the pool: it's big but it's not fully functional. and parts of it is actually dangerous. danger: the lap pool is tiled and probably a bit too shallow for diving (1.4m and less at the ends) it is separated from the main pool which is also pretty shallow, by a tiled wall. this tiled wall can seriously scratch arms and legs of swimmers who want to switch over from the lap pool (i tried, i got away with it). at least, it's only 1-way. main pool cant get over to the lap pool because the lap pool is higher (water cascades down from lap pool to main pool). not fully functional: the pool bar is not ready yet.
about RWS: since it is a whole resort zone, you'd expect the facilities to be connected, or have some sort of ferry service. i think that wont happen in the near future. a lot of it is still under construction. still, there is a way to get from 1 hotel to another via the forum, but its not a pretty walk. parts of it are still stairs based (without escalotors/lifts) or else exposed to the weather.
