The Sentosa Resorts

Sometimes, things happened accidentally. Even things that should have been planned, like… a break or vacation. For one or other reasons, I got an excuse (a very valid excuse) to get away from the office in the middle of a work week, booked the hotel in the morning, then checked in right after lunch.

Very last minute, but we managed to get ourselves the Junior Suite. I wish we had more choices in Singapore, but when it comes to resort for relaxation, I guess the Sentosa Resorts & Spa (www.thesentosa.com) is still one of the prime choice. The newly opened Amara maybe nice, but for the room that was available at that time, I don’t feel the price makes sense. It’s SGD 700++ a night for the Junior Suite in Sentosa Resorts vs. SGD1,200++ a night in Amara.

The Junior Suite is quite spacious and well-decorated. However, a little bit boring for me. I am a sucker for tropical resorts. And if you are looking for that rustic feeling, not too clean and clinical, I guess Singapore is really not the place to do that. At least I’m not aware where we can find such a place in Singapore.

A few shots of the Junior Suite and the Sentosa Resorts:

The spacious Junior Suite.

Though not as heavenly as Westin’s Heavenly Bed, this one is enough to make you want to hide under the blanket for the whole day.

They use tropical fruits as complimentary welcome fruit. They even provide the guidebook to tropical fruit for people who are clueless about them. Nice try. But the fruit display is a bit pathetic…

The Pavilion. The lounge to hang out with some live music in the evening.

Peacock roaming around the resort freely.

Place to relax on a lazy afternoon.
