A place to let your hair down (and preferably swing it around in true head-banging fashion), Singapore’s outpost of the Hard Rock Hotel franchise lives up to its rock and roll name. It even gives you unlimited free use of its 20 Fenders (including those legendary Stratocasters) to use in your rock-themed guest room, with its state-of-the-art entertainment system. The hotel’s decorated with around 120 pieces of musical memorabilia, including a signed Pearl Jam guitar, but its headline act’s the pool. A tropical lagoon, with man-made sandy beach, swanky cabanas, swim-up bar, beach volleyball and buzzing vibe, it’s ‘the’ place to be seen. On Singapore’s Sentosa Island, the hotel’s part of Resorts World Sentosa, so you’re well-placed for celebrity chef dining, Festive Walk’s shops, and big-name attractions like Universal Studios Singapore®.
