Hotel Spotlight: Sleep with the fishes in Singapore
Written by Robert Niles
Theme Park Insider readers love Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, in part because of the many rooms where visitors can see animals from the theme park's safari exhibits grazing right outside their window. Now, for all you wildlife lovers out there, how about a hotel room with a floor-to-ceiling window looking at upon 70 species of sea creatures?Tweet

How would you like to sleep with the fishes? (Sorry, couldn't resist.)
Singapore's Resorts World Sentosa, home of Universal Studios Singapore, has just opened 11 Ocean Suites at the resort's Equarius Hotel. The suites are two-story rooms with the aquarium view on the lower level. They're pricey - S$2400 (US$1,963) a night, plus tax, but that includes 24-hour butler service throughout your stay.
Your window to the sea actually looks out into the world's biggest aquarium exhibit, the 12-million-gallon S.E.A. Aquarium in Resorts World Sentosa's new Marine Life Park, which just opened this month.
The rainforest-themed Equarius Hotel is located on the other side of the resort from Universal Studios Singapore, but Resorts World Sentosa is only about 120-some acres in size (the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World is 107 acres), so it's an easy walk to get anywhere in the resort, which also includes one of Asia's most popular casinos, five other hotels and a luxury shopping mall, with shops such as Versace, Rolex and Jimmy Choo.
So, yeah, it's nice. And for this price, it'd better be.
