Invitation-only hotel tower for high rollers, chic new look Hard Rock Hotel and the world’s first family-friendly hotel rooms among the line up at Singapore’s much anticipated Integrated Resort?

Resorts World at Sentosa has unveiled details of its rooms at four of the six exciting new hotels which will open at Singapore’s highly anticipated Integrated Resort early next year.

The showrooms of Maxims Tower, Hotel Michael, Festive Hotel and the Hard Rock Hotel Singapore which will open in early 2010, offer guests a sneak preview of the accommodation experience in the S$6.59 billion resort and casino development.?

The ultra-luxurious Maxims Tower is a state of the art invitation only hotel comprising 120 lavishly decorated rooms, suites and villas, reserved exclusively for invited VIPs and high rollers.

Hotel Michael is named after world-renowned US architect Michael Graves who was responsible for much of the resort’s master planning as well as the interiors of three of the hotels. Comprising 470 highly luxurious rooms and suites, the hotel features Graves’ signature design which includes ample use of warm maple woods, luxury grey and white marble bathrooms and colourful mosaic walls.

Festive Hotel features bright vibrant colours with oriental touches and is the first hotel in the world designed as much to please children as adults. Approximately half of its 398 family friendly rooms feature loft sleeping areas for kids and separate sleeping chambers for adults.

The 364-room Hard Rock Hotel Singapore meanwhile redefines a new modern glamorous look for Hard Rock, allowing guests to live like a rock star amid plush furnishings and decadent bohemian style.

The four hotels together account for a total of 1,350 hotel rooms, and will be complemented by a second phase which comprises two more hotels, taking the total number of rooms to 1,800.

Resorts World at Sentosa, which will be South East Asia’s premier integrated resort, will house Southeast Asia’s only Universal Studios theme park, the world’s largest oceanarium, six hotels, a casino and a palette of Las Vegas-styled entertainment, restaurants by celebrity chefs and retail shops.

Michael Graves and his firm Michael Graves & Associates, led by Principal Architect Patrick Burke, display their renowned breadth and versatility in their designs for Resorts World at Sentosa.? Not only did they conceive the master plan and architecture throughout the resort, but they also turned their creativity to the hotel interiors at Hotel Michael, Festive Hotel and Maxims Tower, from public spaces to guestrooms.

Andrew Hickey, Vice President of Rooms at Resorts World at Sentosa, said: “The Michael Graves touch makes every room unique. Working with DP Architects, every item, nook and corner was carefully thought through with the visitor in mind.?

“There are bath stools for children in Hotel Michael, loft beds in Festive Hotel for families, and luxurious amenities such as a steam bath in Maxims Tower.? We offer different theme experiences in our six hotels, and the only common traits we want are trademarks of great service and warm hospitality.’’

The design of the rooms bears testimony to the inventiveness and accessible style of Michael Graves & Associates, whose previous award-winning designs range from the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels in Orlando and resorts in Costa Rica and Egypt,? to famed consumer products for Alessi? and? Target, created by MGA’s sister company Michael Graves Design Group.

Patrick Burke, the Principal-in-Charge of the Resorts World at Sentosa project for Michael Graves & Associates, said: “We believe in ‘design for all’ and have become well known for designs that are familiar yet also original, fun and lively. We wanted to create a resort that is accessible at all scales – from the planning of the site to the tiniest details of the guestrooms -- and thus appeals to people of all ages who will come here to pursue a tremendous variety of leisure activities.”

All rooms feature amenities such as Internet connectivity, LCD TVs, mini bar, in-room entertainment and luxurious bedding.
All hotels, including Equarius Hotel and Spa Villas, the two hotels that will open later, are owned and operated by Resorts World at Sentosa.? Hotel bookings will open in the second half of 2009.
