Resorts World Sentosa that located in Sentosa, Singapore, was designed by Michael Graves & Associates. Hotels have long sought the cache of a famous brand and fashion designers such as Georgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, Versace and Christian Lacroix have all had their designs uses in hotels. The Sentosa resort went in a different direction by naming a hotel after Graves – Hotel Michael, a 470-room boutique hotel. Designed by Graves inside and outside, the hotel features Graves’ furniture and furnishings from his Michael Graves Design Group, as well as his paintings in public spaces and in each guest room. The hotel also has a gift shop with Graves-designed products and he also designed the hotel’s Italian restaurant and Sky Bar.
The resort also includes the orchid-themed Festive Hotel, aimed at families, and the ultra-luxury Crocksford Tower, which has the extensive casino. Crocksford embraces the lucky colors of red and gold as well as vivid royal blue in the design, which has sleek modern forms rendered in materials such makore and zebrawood. The L-shaped, 390-room Festive Hotel has fun, vibrant interiors as well as a connected 1,600-seat Festive Grand Theater.
Beyond the theme park are the Marina Xperrimental Museum, Marina, and Showplace Theater. Inspired by sea vessels from the Silk Trade era, the museum has exhibits designed by Ralph Appelbaum. The small marina nearby will display replicas of sailing vessels.
