Capella Singapore

This hotel provides you with everything you need so your preferences do not have to change while getting an exclusive experience. On top of it all you also get to enjoy their in-house facilities such as the famous Auriga spa or just sit back in one of their outdoor pools.

Sofitel Singapore Singapore Resort & Spa


Like an eagle’s nest perched right on top of a cliff, this hotel provides you with a stunning panoramic view of the sea that encapsulates Sentosa on top of some gorgeous interiors and a delightful pool as well. Famed for being somewhat isolated from the noise and bustle of the tropical island, this is a great choice for a tranquil and calming stay, especially from a long day of activities in Sentosa or Singapore itself.

Looking like something out of a Wes Anderson movie when seen from the outside, this is one of the more creative hotels on this list. The hotel itself is a tribute to Michael Graves, a prominent American architect, and the layout mimics his vision succinctly. The interiors are like an art aficionado’s dream come true with stunning decor and intimate design choices that leave you marvelling for days on end. Also, this hotel is closest to Universal Studios so it’s a perfect choice for adrenaline lovers as well.

W Singapore

Independent Hotel

Besides its splendid coastal location, the luxurious and modern interiors will make your stay come alive at W Singapore. Offering a whole host of facilities and different types of rooms to suit your type of stay, W Singapore is one cool and swanky choice within Sentosa or even Singapore for that matter. Check out Woobar while you’re there, which is one of the hottest watering holes in Singapore, or The Kitchen Table for a sumptuous feast while enjoying the cool breeze.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
