The charming interiors of the FestiveWalk in Resorts World Sentosa welcomes you to an captivating esplanade filled with intriguing shops, world-class shows and signature dining establishments that will remain open 24/7. This is where you'd come to buy tickets for Universal Studios Singapore, must-have Resorts World souvenirs, experience brand-name shopping or tuck into sumptuous food at high-end restaurants.

One of the highlights featured by the FestiveWalk is the world's first and only Michael Graves Gallery. The gallery showcases masterpieces and collectibles designed exclusively by Michael Graves himself. These include a range of original sketches and drawings, limited edition prints, fine art posters, books, stationery, personal accessories, kitchenware and even a fashion line for both men and ladies! His popular range of signature homeware, designed exclusively for Alessi, the renowned Italian manufacturer, is also on show.

Another signature first is the first Chihuly gallery in Asia. Dale Chihuly is a contemporary glass sculptor, known around the world for pioneering the glass sculpture movement and for his fluid and vivid installations. A unique collection of his works is showcased at the gallery, including the Sentosa Persian Tower and the Sentosa End of Day Chandelier. Chihuly is also looking forward to opening his first retail outlet in Asia at the FestiveWalk, which will feature products such as glass setworks, original hand-painted drawings and limited edition prints.

The myraid of retail options offered here will certainly delight you, with luxury boutiques (Bulgari, Coach and Dunhill), and speciality stores (Hershey's, Garrett Popcorn and Candylicious) catering to both the young and young-at-heart. Valiram Group, the luxury retail house, brings together some of the most exclusive brand names in Luxury Fashion at Resorts World Sentosa. This retail linkway connects three Resorts World hotels - Festive Hotel, Hotel Michael and the Crockfords Tower, blending seamlessly to appeal to discerning shoppers and hotel guests alike.

Set across a 30,000 square feet retail space, over 45 retail stores will offer everything from leading international brands to lifestyle creations and collectibles for a signature shopping experience. Furthermore, Luxury Fashion will be the first and only retail destination to offer on-the-spot tax refunds for tourists, presenting a hassle-free and more enjoyable shopping experience. Some long-awaited brand names that make their debut in Singapore here at the FestiveWalk include the sexy Victoria’s Secret collections, Damiani, a leading Italian jeweller and Canali, an Italian luxury menswear; as well as Vie Beaute, a modern beauty hall which stocks all major fragrance and cosmetics brands.

A Resorts World Gift Shop can be found at the FestiveWalk. This is the place to get your collectibles, souvenirs and memorabilia for family and friends before you leave. Featured products include an exclusive line of jewellery and stationery, a limited edition mahjong set, and a limited edition teddy bear (available in gold, green and red).

Feeling peckish? There are more than 60 restaurants, cafes and bars at the FestiveWalk, a gastronomical paradise for hungry guests. Cuisines on offer can only be described as an eclectic and sumptuous feast for the senses -  traditional Cantonese cuisine, exotic Brazilian churrasco barbeque or Italian antipasti are all present. Celebrity chefs such as Joel Robuchon and Kunio Tokuoka also add class to these dining destinations.

However, the FestiveWalk truly comes alive at night with roving acts and two spectacular attractions — the Crane Dance and Lake of Dreams — designed by multiple Emmy award-winner Jeremy Railton.

In the Crane Dance, watch romance unfold between a pair of 500-tonne animatronic cranes, as their love for each other transforms them into real birds, against a backdrop of spectacular light, sound and water jets and pyrotechnic effects. The show is open to all visitors to Resorts World Sentosa at no charge.

Meanwhile, at the Lake of Dreams, flaming dragons, water cannons, and laser special effects combine for an enthralling show. This free entertainment spectacle dramatically transforms the strip from day to night.
