A destination dining from the very start, Resorts World Sentosa has begun reimagining the future of dining by taking its unique combination of out-of-the-ordinary dining settings and diverse award-winning cuisines to greater depths.
This September, guests will discover a brand-new underwater dining experience where they can bond, share special moments and enjoy the here and now at RWS.
RWS is taking Southeast Asia’s first and only underwater dining experience at its S.E.A. Aquarium to elevated grandeur with Aqua Gastronomy, a new spellbinding fusion of gastronomic bliss, ever-changing kaleidoscopic landscapes and breathtaking underwater performances accompanied by oceanic soundscapes.
From 4 September to 31 October 2020, eight beautifully bespoke pods will house guests in their exclusive and intimate dining space defined by a molecular-inspired frame, providing a strongly thematic underwater dining experience set before S.E.A. Aquarium’s centrepiece attraction, the Open Ocean Habitat.
Guests will dine in the company of over 100,000 aquatic inhabitants such as Reef Manta Rays, Hammerhead Sharks and Giant Groupers, submerged in the dreamy realm of beautiful underwater terrain, with a combination of dynamic lighting effects, atmospheric music, delectable cuisine, and underwater entertainment.
Theatrical Ocean-themed Cuisine
Poetically named Misty Morning Sea, Ocean’s Reflections, Shining Seas and Treasures of the Ocean, the exquisite creations feature 100% sustainably sourced seafood that has been meticulously selected to ensure their farming, fishing or catching methods have a minimal environmental impact.
In support of the Singapore Food Story, the chefs first looked to local fisheries Barramundi Asia and Ah Hua Kelong which farm high-quality seabass and shellfish respectively using sustainable practices. By including local seafood produce on the menu, their aims are to showcase their premium quality to diners and also reduce Aqua Gastronomy’s carbon footprint.
Safety Protocols & Services
Already an SG Clean accredited venue before the Circuit Breaker, the S.E.A. Aquarium provides a safe dining experience for Aqua Gastronomy by prioritising the health, safety and well-being of guests.
Each dinner session exclusively accommodates up to 50 guests, where each pod is spaced more than 1.5 metres apart. Diners are assured of a clean environment with high air quality standards, as air conditioning units in the S.E.A. Aquarium are installed with high-efficiency filters which eradicate more than 95% of all viruses, bacteria and particles. This is boosted by an ultraviolet germicidal irradiation system which further disinfects the air and kills pathogens using ultraviolet rays. As an added safeguard, plasma air ionisers are deployed across the dining area which generates ions to eliminate viruses and bacteria. In addition, all cutleries are wrapped and all dishes will be covered with cloches when they are served from the kitchen to your table.
#SupportLocal – Bring home an artwork by a Singaporean illustrator
RWS commissioned Wu Yanrong, a talented young Singaporean artist passionate about the ocean to illustrate the S.E.A. Aquarium’s marine animals. Her whimsical yet lifelike illustrations have been printed into collectible postcards so that guests can bring home a little bit of the magic even as the dining experience draws to a close.
The special collaboration between RWS and Wu underscores a shared mission to inspire protection of marine life and their habitats. With a signature style characterised by calligraphy-style brushstrokes, Wu’s work has graced the boutique window displays of luxury French label Hermes. The thoughtful parting gift also includes a jar of housemade kelp sea salt.
Aqua Gastronomy will be held at the S.E.A. Aquarium’s Open Ocean Habitat from 4 September till 31 October 2020, Fridays to Tuesdays with one seating per night from 7 PM to 9 PM. Detailed directions to the venue will be provided upon booking.
