After a festive December and a resolution-filled January, it’s time to take the pressure off and enjoy yourself during the best Sentosa events in February. Get loved-up or celebrate being single on Valentine’s Day in Sentosa or join in the heaps of brilliant events, fun pop-ups and exciting new attractions, and lifestyle destinations.
If you didn’t know this already, we have a new beach club at the State of Fun. Rumours Beach Club is located right smack in the middle of Siloso Beach Club, and it offers beach lovers a new place to hang out, and just relax under the sun. Park yourselves at one of the many sofas, or even the bean bags on the sand. And let’s not forget the massive infinity pool where you can take a dip while grooving to tunes curated by resident DJ Matty Wainwright.
There’s crispy duck confit, and then there’s fried chicken and waffles. But what about duck confit and waffles? You can have this sweet-and-savoury treat at Duckland, TungLok Group’s newest brand, which just opened a new outlet at Resorts World Sentosa. This duck-centric restaurant is known for serving up “Silver Hill Duck”, a unique and exclusive hybrid of Peking Duck and Aylesbury Duck, developed 50 years ago from 6 top-quality ducks at Silver Hill Farm in Ireland. Other duck dishes include Roast Irish Duck, Duck Broth, Duck Fried Rice, Spaghetti Duck Bolognese, Duck Liver Terrine, and Duck Pie. There are also non-duck dishes on the menu such as Charcoal-grilled Baby Back Ribs, Irish Lamb Stew, Bacon Cabbage & Colcannon, and Irish Oysters.
Get your cameras ready, because Siloso Beach is going to be illuminated with a new multi-sensory interactive light and sound spectacle – and this is definitely one for the ‘gram. The newly-minted Magical Shores is a free experience that combines technology, nature, and art, right on Siloso Beach. The experience begins 7.30pm, and ends 10.30pm daily.
Get ready to kick back with a cocktail in hand while you stare into the expansive panoramic views of the of Palawan Beach, and the Singapore Straits at 1-V:U, Sentosa’s latest lifestyle destination located at The Outpost Hotel’s rooftop. Brought to us by the same people that gave us Monti at One Fullerton, and Yin at Clarke Quay, 1-V:U boasts a day club and a progressive Asian Restaurant helmed by Chef Ace Tan – think Bali’s Omnia.
If you’re there for dinner with friends, we recommend the communal dinner menu which features Chef Tan’s take on “Terra” (Land) and “Aqua” (Sea) dishes such as spiced duck breast ($30), glazed oyster blade steak ($40 / $75) and ‘Char Siew’ seared marinated Iberico secreto slices ($34). There’s also the seasonal tasting menu (from $98) where you can try a bit of everything. Recommended dishes from the day club include VU loaded chips with kombu truffle oil, sherry vinegar, grated parmesan ($12), and the ‘Mala-gherita’ pizza ($20; hot Szechuan tomato sauce, confit tomatoes, Thai basil and mozzarella).
