SINGAPORE - Steps away from all the action at the Singapore Sports Hub, SEA Games athletes can find a place to rest and unwind at the 600 sq m Nila Suite.

Managed by the SportCares Foundation and the Foundation's partners, the Nila Suite boasts a variety of facilities to cater to the needs of the athletes.

The suite includes buffet meals, massage chairs, karaoke sets, gaming consoles and a photo booth zone.

With the athletes staying in different hotels during the games, the Nila Suite provides the athletes to interact with each other in a games village setting.

Singapore archer Quah Kai Zhi is a frequent visitor to the suite to sing on the karaoke machine. She said: "This is our fifth or sixth time here and we like the facilities and cozy environment."
