Resorts World Sentosa is an integrated resort on the island of Sentosa. Within its sprawling basement carpark, a collection of parking facilities for buses and coaches, as well as passenger pick-up/drop-off points, cater to bus services that operate to and from Resorts World Sentosa in which we will collectively term Resorts World Sentosa (Bus Terminal).

Opened in 2010 along with the Resorts World Sentosa Integrated Resort, the basement carpark contains several bus facilities, such as a Bus Park, a Boarding and Alighting Point, and a Coach Bay. In bus route information, buses which call at Resorts World Sentosa simply pick-up and drop-off passengers at the designated passenger berths within the basement carpark, with no mention of the bus terminal. In practice, buses park at the Bus Park for layovers.
Resorts World Sentosa is served by RWS8, a daily shuttle service to HarbourFront, as well as Sentosa Internal Bus routes A & C. TS8 and other ad-hoc services operate to Johor Bahru.
Public bus services used to serve the terminal only on selected days. Express Services 188R and 963R operated on Weekends & Public Holidays, while NightRider services NR1 and NR6 operated on Friday & Saturday nights and during eves of Public Holidays. These services were suspended due to the COVID-19 situation from April 2020 and thereafter officially withdrawn in June 2022.
In 2017, bus service 123 was amended to serve Resorts World Sentosa towards Beach Station only daily.
The Bus Park occupies a part of the coach park, using red-painted parallel parking lots reserved for Tong Tar buses (operating on RWS8) and Public Buses. Because of the unidirectional traffic flow pattern within the underground complex, terminating buses must make a large round around from the passenger alighting point to the bus park.
Within the bus park, there is a dispatch office (occupied by Tong Tar, formerly used by SMRT Buses), toilets, vending machines, and benches for resting bus drivers.
Boarding and alighting activities for Public Bus Services 123 is located at a pick-up point outside the Forum, complete with waiting lanes. Passengers exiting from the forum must take the pedestrian crossing to reach the pick-up point.
RWS8 have a separate boarding and alighting point area nearer to the Convention Center due to ease of boarding and high passenger demand.
A separate Boarding / Alighting point is designated for the Genting Hotel Shuttle near the Car Park.
The Coach Bay contains waiting lanes for passenger boarding/alighting and short layovers for coaches. It is also the boarding and alighting point for Transtar Cross Border Bus Service TS8, which offers regular services to Johor Bahru, as well as irregular services offered by the 707 Travel Group.
