Start the new year on the right foot by using our list of Sentosa events in January 2020 to plan your month
January 2020 in Sentosa is going to be a belter. Just when we thought the festive season is coming to a close, another rush of festivities awaits come mid Jan with Chinese New Year.
Whether you want to chill by the beach at a new hangout, start a new hobby or embrace a healthier lifestyle (yoga, ultimate Frisbee or indoor skydiving anyone?) or welcome in the ‘Year of the Rat’ at Universal Studios Singapore’s Chinese New Year celebrations, we've got you covered.
We have a couple of new surprises in store as well. So stay tuned for more.
There’s a new kid on the block on Siloso Beach, and it’s no rumour. With an outpost in Seminyak, Bali, and another one in Holland Village (yes, that Holland V), Rumours Beach Club, recently opened its doors; providing beachgoers another sandy retreat.
Chill out by the pool with Caribbean Breeze (Stolichnaya Chocolat Kokonut, Pineapple Juice, Popcorn Syrup, Redbull Coconut; $28) or its signature Rumours on the Beach (Stolichnaya Premium, Midori, Melon, Fresh Watermelon, Juice, Citrus; $19.80).
Don’t forget to tuck into beachside favourites such as Quattro Formaggi pizza ($23.80), Seafood Pizza ($27.80), Rumours Classic Hamburger ($18.80), and if you're feeling peckish - the Mixed Grill Platter ($58.80) which comes with grain fed striploin, Kurobuta pork chop and baby lamb chop served with fat chips and roasted vegetable sides.
But what sets Rumours apart is its repertoire of Indonesian staples such as Soto Ayam ($18.80), and the Seafood Platter ($159.80) which consists of Grilled jumbo prawns, bamboo lobster, red snapper, squid, and served with cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, long beans, and sambal.
The 2020 SMBC Singapore Open returns to the award winning Serapong Course at Sentosa Golf Club – the tournament’s home since 2005. Come see England’s Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson from Sweden and American Matt Kuchar, duke it out on the green.
Since its return in 2016 the SMBC Singapore Open has been won by Younghan Song of South Korea, who pipped then number one Jordan Spieth of the United States by a stroke in 2016, golden oldie Prayad Marksaeng of Thailand – whose victory came just days ahead of his 51st birthday in January 2017 – and Spanish maestro Sergio Garcia, who arrived at Sentosa in 2018 as the Masters champion. Thai golfer Jazz Janewattananond won the SMBC Singapore Open 2019 in the biggest triumph of his career.
