Transforming Singapore’s leisure and tourism industry through landmark master plan

First key milestone of plan to be completed by 2022, with Sentosa Sensoryscape linking Resorts World Sentosa in the north to Sentosa’s beaches in the south

Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) has unveiled exciting possibilities for Sentosa and Pulau Brani as part of a landmark Master Plan to redevelop the two islands into a game-changing leisure and tourism destination, leveraging their unique island charm, geographical qualities, as well as proximity to the city.

Known as the Sentosa-Brani Master Plan, the comprehensive blueprint will be rolled out in phases over the next two to three decades. It will see SDC leveraging the islands’ ridge-to-reef attributes to bring in world-class attractions as well as fresh and bold night-time offerings, while enhancing last-mile transport connectivity to and within the islands. New spaces and concepts that are authentic and environmentally sustainable will also be created – including rejuvenated beaches and expanded nature and heritage trails.

The redeveloped islands will feature five distinct zones – each delivering unique experiences, with the zones progressively taking on a more leisurely character as guests travel farther from the city into the islands: Vibrant Cluster, Island Heart, Waterfront, Ridgeline, and Beachfront.

“Sentosa Sensoryscape is the first project under this Master Plan. It will complement the expansion of Resorts World Sentosa and subsequent infrastructure enhancements on Sentosa and Pulau Brani,” said Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry and Education, Mr Chee Hong Tat.

The Master Plan will be implemented in phases over the coming decades, with the first milestone project, Sentosa Sensoryscape, beginning construction works in the fourth quarter of 2019 and set to be completed by 2022.

Located at the heart of Sentosa island, the new 30,000sqm Sentosa Sensoryscape, which is approximately the size of 5.5 football fields, will link Resorts World Sentosa in the north to Sentosa’s beaches in the south through a multi-sensory experience, replacing the existing pedestrian thoroughfare.


Magical Shores at Siloso

Sentosa’s guests can now discover Siloso Beach in a whole “new light” when it transforms into the calming and captivating Magical Shores at Siloso every night, since 23 January 2020.

Featuring vivid light, sound, and mist effects across a 400-metre stretch of Siloso Beach, Magical Shores at Siloso leverages Sentosa’s beach assets to bring two islets to life, as well as novel interactive areas where guests immerse themselves in soothing sounds of the island and interact with light art on the sands. Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry and Education, Mr Chee Hong Tat, officially opened the attraction this evening.

Magical Shores at Siloso is Singapore’s first multi-sensory, interactive beach light art attraction. Comprising four acts, the attraction offers an experience unique to Sentosa. Taking centre stage are two islets across the waters, which are bathed in lights, dreamy fog, and tranquil music to transport guests to an ethereal island. Watch the trees come alive as a relaxing light and sound symphony accentuate the raw beauty of the natural landscape.

In another novel highlight, guests can interact with light art on the sands, inspired by diverse elements ranging from water flow to marine creatures.
