Think island life is just about the sun and beach? Think again. Or rather, think Resorts World Sentosa (RWS).
With a whole host of entertainment and dining options that span from the adrenaline-pumping Universal Studios Singapore to the fine dining Ocean restaurant by Cat Cora, RWS is one of the definitive destinations on Sentosa. And the best way to take full advantage of all the experiences that the integrated resort has to offer? Sign up for its RWS Invites Membership.
This is not your ordinary rewards programme. Going beyond discount perks, RWS Invites will offer members-only dining packages, exclusive access to private events and previews, and priority entry at attractions. On top of it all, the Invites$ Rebate system will let you redeem your Invites dollars for parking, hotel stays, attraction passes and shopping deals.
It really is as easy as flashing your stylish white RWS Invites Card to start accumulating the rebates. And nope, there is no minimum spend to earn your Invites$. As a special treat for this festive season, the Members Dine Free promotion lets you earn rebates of up to 50 percent when you dine at Forest森, KT’s Grill (Universal Studios Singapore ticket required), Osia, Palio, Starz Restaurant and Tangerine. Until 30 December 2014, you’ll receive a 50 percent rebate when you dine with one other guest, 33 percent when you dine with two, and 25 percent when you dine with three. Members dining alone or in groups of five to 20 will receive a 20 percent rebate.
The annual membership is priced at just $150, yet every sign-up will be greeted with a generous welcome package worth $186 to $248 – is this a fabulous deal or is this a fabulous deal?
For the gastronomically inclined, the RWS Dining Vouchers welcome package (worth $200) will be particularly enticing. Just look at the extensive stable of restaurants in the programme for your dining pleasure. Relish on a Tuscan feast of wood-fired pizzas and traditional handmade pastas at Italian family restaurant Palio, where little ones can play chef at the pizza-making classes. Having trouble coming to a consensus with the family on where to eat? The smorgasbord international buffet spread at Starz Restaurant makes it easy to cater to everyone's individual preferences.
If you’re looking to impress, you and your guests will be well taken care of by the immaculate food and service at RWS’ bevy of celebrity chef restaurants. Head to the esteemed Joël Robuchon Restaurant for French haute cuisine classics or go to L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon to watch the masterful preparation of your avant-garde meal in the open kitchen.
Sit under a forest canopy-inspired ceiling at Forest森 to dine on chef Sam Leong’s contemporary Chinese cuisine, and be surprised by Australian chef Scott Webster’s creative take on Asian ingredients and Western techniques at Osia. For a memorable experience, make a reservation at Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora for the rare opportunity of dining inside an aquarium, with a magnificent view of marine life.
