New Genting Hotel in Jurong to open on Apr 30

THE first major hotel in the western part of Singapore will open at the end of this month, adding vibrancy to the Jurong Lake District.

Located along Jurong Town Hall Road, Genting Hotel Jurong is a 15-storey, 557-room hotel tower that will not only be close to popular shopping malls like Jem and JCube, but also near the International Business Park, and the Jurong East Bus Terminal and MRT station.

In a statement on Thursday, Resorts World Sentosa said Genting Hotel Jurong will be a "stunning lakeside destination for business and leisure" that will infuse new energy and vibrancy into the thriving business and lifestyle hub.

Mr Chow Keng Hai, Vice President of Rooms, Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) said: "Genting Hotel Jurong will boost RWS' room inventory significantly and forms part of our business strategy to drive greater visitorship to RWS.

"It also allows us to be part of the exciting transformation that is taking place at the Jurong Lake District. The Singapore government's development plans to revitalise the area into a stunning lakeside destination for business and leisure, bode well for Genting Hotel Jurong.

Touted as an eco-friendly "hotel within a garden", Genting Hotel Jurong, features a roof-top garden and sky terrace, which offer expansive views of the Jurong Lake District.

Genting Hotel Jurong is a 15-minute drive from the Tuas Checkpoint, a 25-minute drive from RWS and a 40-minute drive from Changi International Airport. Hotel guests get to take shuttle bus to RWS for free. The 24-hour bus service will ply continually between the hotel and RWS.
