Singapore retains a position as one of the most forward-thinking, stylish destinations in Asia, if not the world. That has enticed a throng of well-heeled travellers, eager to dine on Michelin-starred cuisine, swig cocktails at Marina Bay Sands, and – perhaps – go local with a visit to a hawker’s market. They stay in a hearty selection of luxury resorts, swanky enough to please even the most discerning of traveller.
Boasting a rustic feel, Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa is a five-star boutique resort that sits atop Palawan Beach, housing 140 award-winning guest rooms, suites and villas. Surrounding the resort are four swimming pools, including an infinity pool with breathtaking views of the South China Sea. Pamper yourself at the Spa Luna, or indulge in some retail therapy at 100 AM Mall, where you’ll receive discounts at certain stores with your hotel keycard.
With easy access to Singapore’s financial and shopping districts, Capella Singapore offers a luxurious escape on Sentosa Island. Among its many guest rooms and suites are two opulent Colonial Manors, which are stand-alone houses, complete with king-sized beds, garden views, an outdoor terrace and a plunge pool. For the ultimate culinary experience, book the Chef’s Table in the home-style kitchen onsite, or reserve the tailored afternoon tea.
Singapore’s only beachfront resort, Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa features a balcony in each room for you to enjoy views of the nearby Siloso Beach. Couples will enjoy the privacy of their own outdoor Jacuzzi in the Deluxe Seaview Suite, while families with children should opt for the spacious Pool View Room. There’s also a kayak and stand-up paddleboard rental, plus the Nestopia outdoor playground. Rotate between the resort’s six restaurants, which include a noodle house and Italian wood-fired pizzeria.
Inspired by the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris, Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resorts & Spa is a luxurious paradise at the top of Tanjong Beach in Sentosa. The resort features 215 rooms and suites, as well as four luxurious villas with a private pool and an open deck. It’s also home to the largest SoSPA in the world, which spans across 6,000 square metres (2,317sqmi). Relax with a deep tissue massage in one of the outdoor treatment pavilions while the kids enjoy face painting and tent building.
On the western point of Resorts World Sentosa, you’ll find the Beach Villas, set amidst lush gardens with a panoramic view of the harbour and Labrador Park. These five-star accommodations include a private pool and personal butler service at each of the one-, two- and three-bedroom villas. Alternatively, book the aptly named Palace villa, with its four bedrooms, egyptian cotton bed linen and freestanding bathtubs, which can accommodate 16.
