Where dreams become reality

[Written by Tania H from Communications]

I’ve had so many firsts since joining the big RWS family and just like you, can’t wait for us to open.

There are so many perks being among the privileged 1,700 plus and counting team members of this first of its kind hospitality group in Singapore.

One of which is the opportunity to get sneak peeks into the establishment, even as it is being built.

Some of my colleagues and I were on site a couple of weeks ago, checking out the soon-to-be-ready dining outlets in the four hotels which will be open in Phase 1 sometime early next year.

It was my first time setting foot on a construction site and unbeknownst of the palpable dangers and whipping dust storms that were more than happy to give me a facial, I was rearing to go.

Although Resorts World Sentosa occupies a massive 49 hectares of land area, I realized it’s easy to get around, thanks to the well-planned architectural blueprints. Hotels, attractions, entertainment, dining, shopping—they’re all within reach of one another and in view.

Hence, there is very little reason for one to get lost. Just get to the heart of RWS, which is FestiveWalk—where guests will be entertained 24/7 and you’ll find your bearings. But chances are you might forget where you were heading in the first place because the distractions are aplenty.

Anyway, back to my walk: much of the heavy lifting was over and the swanky embellishments were being fitted into place. Maple paneling, black and white marble flooring and tiled walls, grooves to fit expensive chandeliers—all these furnishings gave me a glimpse of how luxurious the final product will be.

And the dining options here are astounding, as there is almost something for everybody, from exquisite fine dining experiences, to the best hawker fare available on our Singapore shores.

There’s Japanese cuisine, authentic Cantonese favourites, bona fide classic European degustation menus and a great variety of others for gourmands who appreciate fresh seasonal produce which the resort will import directly from the countries of origin, as well as children-friendly dining outlets with plenty of running space to accommodate their boundless energy.

But for others like me who don’t wish to break the bank when mid-month approaches but still desire a one-of-a-kind dining experience, the various foodcourts we have will give other big names in town a run for their money.

I was surprised to see how spacious the kitchens were because if you’ve seen the kitchens of some fine-dining establishments in Singapore, it’s incredible how chefs can cook out of a pigeonhole. So it’s good news for our culinary team. Inspiring works of art will be created and transported from the hot kitchen to our tables in mere seconds.

Any news on when the Michelin inspectors are coming to town, anyone? We’ll be a good reason for them to drop by.

Talented food and beverage personnel are joining us this minute, as the recruitment drive at Suntec takes place on 12-13 October. What we need are service-oriented staff who’ll always flash a smile, as our CEO mentioned, he’s on a mission to get Singaporeans to smile. And we’re with him, let’s all flash our pearly whites! Once the service staff are on board, it’ll be training and more training. It’s time to get them acquainted with our dining options, the menus and our mantra.

By the way, a group of RWS staff were invited to Oktoberfest held at the Swiss Club a couple of weeks back and it was a good experience for us to see how such events are hosted on local soil. There are definitely plans to host major food events when we open and rock the entertainment scene in Singapore.
