The Shangri-La Group will develop its first standalone lifestyle and entertainment precinct, Palawan Sands, on Sentosa Island in Singapore. Slated to open in 2023, it will be home to several new-to-Singapore leisure activities.
There will be a host of lifestyle entertainment and exciting food and beverage options, accompanied by Shangri-La’s hallmark hospitality.
Taking pole position at Palawan Sands is HyperDrive, South-east Asia’s first-ever gamified electric Go-Kart circuit featuring an eco-friendly fleet of electric karts on a three-level racetrack.
Palawan Sands will also be home to two unique beach clubs, each catering to different audiences. The first is a sandcastle-themed family beach club. Complementing that is the +Twelve, which will feature an iconic swim-up bar in the main pool overlooking the shoreline of Palawan beach, and 12 terraced private cabanas, each with their own plunge pool.
Other attractions are UltraGolf, a brand-new 18-hole mini golf course, and HydroDash, Singapore’s very first floating aqua water theme park.
More details on food and beverage options at Palawan Sands will be shared closer to opening.
Chan Kong Leong, regional CEO for the Shangri-La Group in South-east Asia & Australasia, said: “Here at Shangri-La, we have spent the last 50 years helping our guests create meaningful memories to last a lifetime. With Palawan Sands, we are pleased to have the opportunity to bring colourful joys of life to our guests outside of the hotel setting. Designed to bring families and friends together, Palawan Sands enables our guests to realise their Shangri-La, both individually and with one another, as they play, explore and bond together.”
Thien Kwee Eng, CEO of Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC), added: “Palawan Sands will be a reimagination of the Sentosa beach getaway, and illustrates SDC’s partnership with the industry to curate multi-faceted and unique leisure experiences for our island’s guests. With leisure and dining offerings for various ages at Palawan Sands, the attraction will reinforce Palawan Beach’s position as a family-friendly zone, and give Singaporeans and tourists a great option to unwind.”
