Sentosa’s new attractions for bleisure and business events
The newest attractions on Singapore’s Sentosa island are offering enhanced experiences to tap the bleisure and business events market.

Opening this year and next, they are part of the Sentosa-Brani masterplan to make Sentosa a world-class destination.

Sentosa Sensoryscape, launched to the public on March 14, is a 350m verdant connector combining nature, architecture and technology to stimulate ‘six senses’, including the sense of imagination. It spans some 30,000m2 from Resorts World Sentosa in the north to the beaches in the south.

The sensory gardens – Lookout Loop, Tactile Trellis, Scented Sphere, Symphony Streams, Palate Playground and Glow Garden – are enriched with immersive and audio-visual experiences.

“Sentosa Sensoryscape embodies Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC)’s commitment to push boundaries and create extraordinary landmarks inspired by the beauty in nature,” said said Thien Kwee Eng, CEO of SDC.

“This thoughtfully designed and welcoming green connector right at the heart of Sentosa will inspire our guests through a plethora of endless and unique discoveries.”

ImagiNite, an augmented reality and interactive digital light art experience, is available nightly through a special mobile app.

Organisers and event planners can look forward to exciting options for conferences and business events when Sensoryscape is fully completed later this year, with opportunities for curated events and brand collaborations.

Meanwhile, Scentopia unveiled its new look in February to take the blend of aesthetics, interactivity and sensory exploration to new heights. Treading through fragrance rooms, visitors learn the art and science of perfumery.

The perfume workshop is free for qualifying corporate users under Singapore Tourism Board’s Singapore Incentives & Rewards (INSPIRE) program until January 31, 2026.

Scentopia has also created novel teambuilding activities for business events, such as calming aroma(therapy) and scent crafting. These can be done at its premises for 10 participants upwards, or at clients’ offices, halls and other MICE venues for 35 pax upwards. Session times average from one to 2.5 hours. Up to 10 groups a day can be hosted onsite and three groups of larger sizes offsite.

“We believe in the power of experiential learning and how it can positively impact team dynamics,” said Niki Leow, general manager of Scentopia.

“Our teambuilding options not only promote wellness and holistic healing but also provide a platform for personal growth and team bonding. Participants will leave with a deeper sense of connection and rejuvenation, ready to take on new challenges with renewed enthusiasm.”

Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) is currently refurbishing its hotels, food and beverage outlets, attractions and casino in phases.

Last July, Festive Hotel was transformed into Hotel Ora, a bleisure hotel offering contemporary-design mobile working spaces, co-working amenities and meeting rooms spread over two floors. Earlier this month, Hard Rock Hotel ceased operations but its new iteration has yet to be revealed.

RWS reports that the Forum lifestyle zone, Minion Land at Universal Studios Singapore and Singapore Oceanarium are on track to soft open in early 2025. Construction of the new Waterfront development is set to start this year. It will feature 700 hotel rooms and various immersive lifestyle offerings.
