A new beach entertainment precinct developed and managed by Shangri-La Group has opened on Sentosa Island, Singapore, offering both wet and dry activities and various F&B options along with the brand’s signature Asian hospitality.
Spread across the sprawling shoreline of the island, The Palawan @ Sentosa packs in eight distinctive experiences including HyperDrive, the region’s first gamified electric go-karting circuit that is spread over a three-level racetrack; UltraGolf, an 18-hole mini-golf course; The Palawan Dog Run, a secured green space that is ideal for smaller and medium sized furkids; and HydroDash, Singapore’s first floating inflatable playground.
Guests of all ages are welcomed at Splash Tribe, a family-oriented beach club that comes with a sandcastle-themed wet-play zone equipped with water slides, water spray features and dumping buckets. Daybeds, sun loungers or private two-storey gazebos offer beachside respite.
A more exclusive beach club comes in the form of +Twelve, which boasts distinctive terraced architecture and 12 private cabanas with personal plunge pools and unobstructed views of Palawan Beach. The 290-seat beach club is supported by in-house mixologists at the swim-up bar and serves a food menu, while in-house or guest DJs play on weekends.
To refuel, visitors have The Palawan Food Trucks, where 10 eclectic food trucks dish out various favourite bites from all over the world, such as Mexican tacos and Korean fried chicken. Greek restaurant Blu Kouzina will add to The Palawan @ Sentosa’s dining options when it opens in early October 2023.
“With The Palawan @ Sentosa, we are creating new waves of excitement and bringing more colourful joys of life for our guests outside of our regular hotel setting. Shangri-La has a rich history of delivering joyful experiences for our guests, paired with our trademark Asian hospitality. With our very first standalone lifestyle entertainment precinct, we hope to continue delighting guests, and inspiring them to discover their personal Shangri-La with us, as they play, explore and bond through an array of exciting leisure and dining offerings we have specially put together at The Palawan @ Sentosa,” said Chan Kong Leong, regional CEO for the Shangri-La Group in Southeast Asia & Australasia, Hong Kong, Japan and Middle East, Europe, Indian Ocean & The Americas.
