The Palawan @ Sentosa: What To Expect
Many of the attractions and experiences at The Palawan @ Sentosa are still in the midst of launching. Here’s a first look at what you can expect.
One of the highlights of The Palawan @ Sentosa is Splash Tribe, a family beach club.
The beach club has a sandcastle-themed wet-play zone and an infinity pool. The water castle is fitted with water slides and dominates the Sentosa family beach club.
There are also different types of sprays and fountains to help guests cool off as they make their way around the water play area.
Families will also appreciate the chance to cool down and escape the heat of the day in the pools, which includes an infinity pool.
Splash Tribe occupies the spot previously occupied by the Palawan Pirate Ship water playground, continuing the tradition of having an outdoor water playground at Palawan beach.
There is also food and beverages served at Splash Tribe.
The family club is divided into five different “seating zones”. These range from dining tables to poolside lounge sets. There are different minimum spends at each of the zones. You can book a spot at one of these zones for between four to four-and-a-half hours, depending on the day of the week.
Splash Tribe opened Friday, 28 July 2023.
