Landmark masterplan will transform Sentosa and Brani islands into Singapore’s trendiest leisure destinations

The first key milestone of Sentosa Brani Master Plan has been recently unveiled, which will reinforce Sentosa Island as Singapore’s largest leisure destination.

Sentosa Island and the neighbouring island of Brani, currently a loading area for cargo, is due to be turned into an enhanced leisure and tourism destination, according Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC).

“The Sentosa-Brani Master Plan will position Singapore as a leading destination for the next few decades. Sentosa Sensoryscape is the first project under this Master Plan, it will complement the expansion of Resort World Sentosa and subsequent infrastructure enhancements on Sentosa and Brani. Our tourism industry has plenty of scope for further growth and rejuvenation,” said Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry and Education, Mr Chee Hong Tat. The Sentosa-Brani Master Plan will be rolled out in phases over the next two to three decades. It will see SDC leveraging the islands’ ridge- to-reef attributes to bring in world-class attractions as well as new night-time offerings. The new spaces will reflect authenticity and sustainability – including rejuvenated beaches and nature trails through five distinct zones – Vibrant Cluster, Island Heart, Waterfront, Ridgeline, and Beachfront.

The new 30,000 sqm Sentosa Sensoryscape will link Resorts World Sentosa in the north to Sentosa’s beaches in the south through a multi-sensory experience. Work will start by the end of 2019 and will be completed in 2022.

Sentosa Sensoryscape will feature a series of novel, picture-worthy vessel-like structures, measuring some 25 m wide and 13 m tall. Each of these will be framed by unique architectural features, based on the five senses through various elements such as polyphonic water features, mist as well as fragrant owers and plant species.

While works are ongoing for Sentosa Sensoryscape, guests will still be able to access and enjoy Sentosa’s diverse array of leisure experiences. However, the giant Singapore Merlion statue will be demolished to give way to the new build.
