Newly opened ForestPlay is Singapore’s first Nature Adventure Playscape, combining the concept of an adventure playground with learning amongst nature. This exciting new outdoor playscape set against the backdrop of Tanjong Beach, Sentosa, provides a fun and challenging environment for kids 4-14 years old to take part in risky play. A highlight is the woodworking area – kids can use saws and hammers and create wooden structures. ForestPlay powered by forest school educators Kidz Treehouse provides children with unique challenges and activities that will foster their imagination and creativity and help them develop anti-fragility, grit, and appreciation of nature.
The new Treasure of Raffles Stay & Play package features a virtual theatrical experience ‘The Curious Case of the Missing Peranakan Treasure’, a detective mystery filmed at Raffles hotel, directed by Hossan Leong. The interactive show (available to watch in your room or at home) was filmed using 360 degree VR cameras and gives you a wonderful flavour of the heritage of the hotel. Plus it’s a fabulous whodunnit mystery that even (older) kids will enjoy! Next up, go on a treasure hunt around the hotel grounds to find the missing jewel, all the while admiring the gorgeous colonial architecture. The Stay & Play staycation (or daycation) package includes breakfast for two, two complimentary Singapore Slings, a gift from Raffles Boutique, exclusive 15% off at all Raffles-operated restaurants, bars and spa. Successful mystery solvers will receive a special Afternoon Tea Experience for two at The Grand Lobby (worth $156++). Good to know: the rooftop pool is stunning (best for well-behaved or older kids as guests are mostly couples enjoying the peace), service is top-notch and breakfast taken at the Tiffin Room or alfresco courtyard is absolutely fantastic!
