Are you planning a trip to Resorts World Sentosa? From 30 April, you’ll have a new accommodation option that’s a 20-minute shuttle away from the Resort – the Genting Hotel Jurong, the first hotel in the Jurong Lake District of Singapore.
Genting Hotel Jurong makes sense as a choice location for more than just families. It’s great for you too if you’re one of these types of travellers:
The budget-savvy traveller
Rooms at Genting Hotel Jurong are priced lower than hotels found on the island. For entry-tier rooms, expect to save at least $50 per night.
On average, the Superior Room at Genting Hotel Jurong costs $150 per night, while the lowest-priced room costs $200 at Festive Hotel and $250 at Hard Rock Hotel. It gets higher. [Check the Resorts World Sentosa website for actual day-to-day rates.]
It is a pretty much no-frills option but if your itinerary sends you out of the room for the whole day, it makes perfect sense to spend your time and cash on what matters – outside, having fun.
PS, if you’re staying at Genting Hotel Jurong, you won’t need to pay for transport to RWS since there’s a a 24-hour free shuttle service. The journey takes 20 minutes so it’s great for forty winks.
The last-minute traveller
We know, smart travellers today make plans for their next vacation months in advance. But not all trips go according to plan. Sometimes, plans fall through but you still need a quick break from work and life. During peak periods, that might be a pricey, if not impossible affair (sorry, no rooms!).
Fret not. With 557 rooms, a third of total rooms in RWS, Genting Hotel Jurong just might be an option, and your saviour.
If you cannot find a suitable room in the Resort for a particular time, try Genting Hotel Jurong. Plus, you won’t be missing out on the action in the Resort with the 24-hour direct shuttle.
For travellers with business in the west
Even if you’re not headed to RWS, Genting Hotel Jurong is still a great place to stay when you need to get down to business.
If you have a reason to visit the various business parks (International Business Park, CleanTech Park), hospitals or tertiary institutions (Nanyang Technological University, National University of Singapore) in the vicinity, Genting Hotel Jurong provides a no-fuss, quick option that was sorely missing in the past.
[Updated 10 December 2015] Good news, we now have a free shuttle service for corporate guests to International Business Park. The shuttle service is available on weekdays (except public holidays) at 8.00am and 8.45am.
The hotel has business travel-friendly amenities such as
- Internet kiosk for you to check your emails and stay up to date with what’s happening around the world
- Sundries dispenser so you can travel light and buy your daily essentials at the hotel
- Self-service launderette room with dryer and ironing facility
- Mechanized basement car park if you’re driving from overseas
Genting Hotel Jurong will open on 30 April 2015. Find out why it’s a great location for your family vacation.
