School holidays are almost here again, can you believe it?! If the thought of forking out on flights or the cost of camps has you considering calling off Christmas, then take the path of least resistance and stay home for the September break. Enrol your kids in the unofficial School Of Rock: check in to Resort World Sentosa’s Hard Rock Hotel for a few nights for a tonne of fun.
This is not about luxe or minimalism or sunset views. This is about the very important subject of rock and roll – the cornerstone of every good education! Not only can you expose your kids to some of the most salient points of rock and roll history, trash your hotel room, and see some live music, you can also download some free music, make like rock stars and hit the lush pool area. And right on your doorstep you’ve got Adventure Cove, Universal Studios and S.E.A Aquarium.
Pull up to the lobby and strut past the oversized guitars to check in to your crib. No need to remove sunglasses. While awaiting your escort, check out Eric Clapton’s red Fender and vinyl pressings from Pearl Jam.
When we said crib, we meant it in the MTV sense of the word: book the Rock Star Suite decked out in mock MTV “Cribs” style, with two bedrooms and a large pool-facing balcony fit for an A-list family. Even plush deluxe rooms boast a state-of-the-art entertainment system – of course.
Order a Fender guitar to your room. Seriously. You can dial up some strings for delivery and have an in-room jam session. Afterwards, head to the pool which includes a private beach. Before you hit the pool, load up your smart phone with free tracklists featuring artists from Kaiser Chiefs to Ben Harper and everything in between.
Grab cocktails and mocktails poolside from the Rock Pool Bar. No need to exist on a liquid diet though – order up some snacks while you swim or move inside to the Rock Bar where you can sample a platter to go with some live tunes.
Resident band, Raw Energy, plays regular gigs at Rock Bar and they will happily expose your kids to the most popular rock songs in history with their classic covers.
