Updated: 2 February 2017
Sentosa, often referred to as Singapore’s offshore playground, is popular with tourists and locals alike. People flock to the city-state’s tiny island, looking for unrivalled luxury, giant theme parks and pristine stretches of beach. Here are some of the best resorts to stay at, whether you’re visiting Sentosa from the other side of the world or just enjoying a weekend staycation away from the city.

ONE°15 Marina

What makes ONE°15 Marina one of the best resorts in Singapore isn’t the unparalleled opulence of the club, it’s the atmosphere that comes from being an ultra-luxurious, waterfront lifestyle community. Besides the marina facilities, ONE°15 Marina boasts an impressive roster of amenities, including a designer infinity pool, a world-class fitness centre and a handful of restaurants with beautiful views. To take your holiday to another level, rent a superyacht to explore the smattering of islands nearby. ONE°15 Marina is also determined to preserve the natural beauty of Singapore and has received repeated recognition for its commitment to environmentalism.

Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa

Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa is a sprawling retreat situated in the heart of the action at Sentosa Island; a short walk from the beaches and attractions such as Universal Studios Singapore or the SEA Aquarium. Despite its vast size and strategic location, the design of the property creates a sense of intimacy. Surrounded by trees, the peaceful Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa combines Singapore’s colonial heritage with a contemporary spin on its jungle location. Facilities include a 24-hour e-concierge service (available through your smartphone), free wi-fi throughout the property, four outdoor swimming pools and a dedicated conference and event space.

Capella Singapore

Another resort with a prime location on Sentosa, Capella Singapore is set within 30 acres of lush tropical forest, but is still within walking distance to the beach and just a short drive from Marina Bay and Orchard Road. The property boasts some of Singapore’s largest hotel rooms, including the Contemporary Manors (398 square metres) and Colonial Manors (436 square metres). Standout facilities include beautiful, cascading swimming pools; The Knolls, a modern Mediterranean restaurant; and the award-winning Auriga Spa, which snatched the title of Best Girls’ Day Out Spa in the Harper’s Bazaar Singapore Spa Awards 2016.
