Had a stay in this hotel right within the Jurong Lake District back in March 2016- not too long ago. This hotel is relatively new still – they started operations back in late Apr 2015.
Checked into the Superior Room for the night – pretty small room space at 18 sq m, but the hotel has got nice and comfortable bedding to rest on.
The hotel is situated next to the golf course. If you happen to stay next to the golf course chances are you need to draw the curtain for the night when you rest to prevent the flood lights entering your room.
However, the plus point is the room makes you feel so much relax and at home due to the colourful wall above the bedding head frame.
The bathroom also feels small, but is well equipped with basic necessities. A Standing shower area with screen and the basin and toilet next to it. Designed in a triangle shape set up.
At night time, you are likely to have a good night of rest as everything comes to a stand near and around the hotel vicinity. You could even take a stroll out at the sky gardens located at almost every other floor – which is next to the lift lobby. It gives you some personal peaceful space to roam, or hang out to feel the night crisp air.
If you are an early riser, you can try hitting the gym to workout or even go for a morning swim. The hotel also has a very nice outdoor lawn by the pool side where you can do some morning stretching or view the open fields facing Jurong East district.
Connectivity to Resorts World Sentosa:
There is shuttle bus service on 24/7 between Resorts World Sentosa and Genting Hotel Jurong. Which is a convenient 25 minutes journey (Depending on traffic) from the hotel to Sentosa island – where attractions like Universal Studios, Adventure Cove and SEA Aquarium awaits you. Yes, I know this sounds so touristy. For a slight inconvenience, the average room rate here is definitely lower than staying on Sentosa. It is ranges about $225 per night on a weekday during non peak season.
Overall Feel: It is good for comfort as there are many nearby food places and direct shuttle bus running round the clock to Sentosa island; and a golf course just across from the hotel among many other entertainment and shopping and amenities nearby too.
