Capella offers something completely unique in Singapore; set on Sentosa Island, just off the southern coast of the city, it sprawls across 30 acres of verdant gardens and grounds, offering respite from the hum of Singapore's city centre.
There are just 112 rooms in total so the hotel doesn't feel overly large when compared to some options in Singapore. Rooms are sleek, contemporary and well designed with wooden floors, white sheets and views out to either the gardens or the South China Sea. All of the rooms are spacious and benefit from private balconies, but for an even more luxurious stay, upgrade to one of the Villas for your own plunge pool and a separate living area.
At Capella you can enjoy unique culinary experiences in three different dining locations. Try the modern Cantonese cuisine in restaurant Cassia, a refreshing Mediterranean feast at The Knolls, or a luxurious and private meal at Chef's Table. Then, sip Cuban inspired cocktails on the outdoor terrace of Bob's Bar.
With bikes to borrow, this is a great option if you want to get out and about exploring Sentosa Island and central Singapore. City highlights include the stunning Gardens by the Bay, Merlion Park and bustling downtown. For more relaxed days, within the gardens and grounds of Capella there are tennis courts, three swimming pools, a fitness centre, library and an adults-only spa.
Our top tip: watch the tropical sunset from Bob Bar's outdoor terrace.
