Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • On Sentosa Island near Universal Studios, casinos, and golf courses
  • Spacious rooms with rock memorabilia, flat-screen TVs, and iPod docks
  • Nice modern bathrooms with rainforest showerheads
  • Gorgeous pools, one with a swim-up bar and an artificial beach
  • Big, modern fitness center with updated machines and free weights
  • Solid (but expensive) restaurant and lively bar on-site

Cons

  • Far from major tourist attractions (but near Universal Studios)
  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Some complaints about wear and tear
  • Can get very crowded

Bottom Line

The Hard Rock Hotel Singapore is located inside the Resort World Sentosa, a complex of hotels, casinos, restaurants, and entertainment venues on Sentosa Island. Rooms are fairly spacious and feature flat-screen TVs, contemporary decor (with some bold color combinations), iPod docks, and photographs of rock icons. While beds are comfortable, some guests have complained about general wear and tear. Hotel amenities include a modern fitness center and a solid restaurant. The highlight of the Hard Rock is the gorgeous outdoor pool area complete with a swim-up bar, artificial beach, lap pool, and free-form pool. The chain is known for attracting young people looking for nightlife, but this property is also popular with families that want to be close to Universal Studios.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Inside the Resort World Sentosa, a 30-minute drive from Downtown Singapore

The Hard Rock Hotel Singapore is part of the Resort World Sentosa, a huge entertainment complex with a wide range of restaurants, hotels, shops, casinos, clubs, and attractions in western Sentosa Island. The resort is home to Universal Studios and Marine Life Park and attracts families as well as a young crowd looking for nightlife.

Sentosa Island is located a 25-minute drive from the downtown area and is connected to mainland Singapore by the Sentosa Gateway. It is divided into two very distinct parts -- the tranquil, more secluded eastern half (home to golf courses, quiet resorts, and forests) and the younger, massive tourism-oriented western half, home to Resort World. The island is a good spot for golfers, nature lovers, and partiers, but those in Singapore to visit the sights are better off staying closer to Downtown.

Singapore is known to have heavy traffic at all times, so the following driving times are just for guidance.

  • 35-minute drive to Changi International Airport
  • 20- to 25-minute drive to Chinatown
  • 20- to 35-minute drive to Downtown Singapore’s attractions
  • 20- to 25-minute drive to the Marina Bay area and the Esplanade Theater and Library
  • 25- to 30-minute drive to the Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Center
  • 25- to 30-minute drive to Fort Canning Park
  • 35-minute drive to Orchard Road
