Taking pride of place on Singapore’s resort island of Sentosa and spanning 49 hectares of lush greenery amongst pristine lakes, this $6.59 billion mega-resort will be home to Southeast Asia’s first and only Universal Studios theme park, the world’s largest oceanarium — Marine Life Park and the region’s only fully integrated destination spa — ESPA.
