Singapore boasts several five star resorts, marrying luxury accommodation with leisure facilities such as swimming pool, tennis courts, multiple dining options and spa facilities. The beach front of Sentosa Island has several resorts to check out, while even the city center hotels boast resort-style facilities, meaning you don’t need to sacrifice location in your quest for leisure and relaxation.
Sentosa Island, with its sandy beaches and family-friendly attractions, is the obvious area for a concentration of resorts. Leading the pack is the stunning Norman Foster designed Capella Singapore. All of its rooms and villas boast sea views, while its cascading swimming pool set amongst the rainforest is the ideal place to relax and unwind. For ultimate pampering, the Capella is also home to one of the best spas in Singapore.
Also lining the beachfront of Sentosa Island, you will find the luxurious Sentosa Resort, with its award-winning outdoor spa, and the family-friendly Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Resort. Away from the beach is the mega-resort Resorts World Sentosa complex, where you will find the Universal Studios theme park, theatre, 24 hour casino, luxury shopping arcade and numerous bars and restaurants, in addition to six hotels. Two of the hotels are found on our list here – art lovers choice Hotel Michael, and rockstar favorite, the Hard Rock Hotel.
Within the city center, the Shangri-La tropical garden setting and extensive leisure facilities belies its location just a stone’s throw from Orchard Road. The company’s flagship hotel boasts beautifully landscaped gardens, complete with koi ponds and waterfalls, a large free-form swimming pool and four floodlit tennis courts.
