Next year's Singapore SEA Games will have a true city feel to it, as organisers announced on Wednesday that 20 hotels in the central part of the island will provide accommodation for athletes, officials and delegates during the sporting extravaganza.

Based on the concept of a "Celebration in the City", the likes of Marina Bay Sands and Fairmont Singapore were picked for their convenient location near the Singapore Sports Hub and areas where the majority of the sports competitions and fringe events will be held.

"The 28th SEA Games will celebrate and showcase sport against the backdrop of Singapore's stunning city setting. We want our Games athletes and officials to enjoy our city's unique flavours, sights and sounds, even as they focus on competing at their best," said Lim Teck Yin, chairman of the Singapore SEA Games Organising Committee's (Singsoc) exco committee.

"We are confident that our SEA Games athletes and officials will have an enjoyable stay and return home with wonderful memories of the Games and Singapore."
