The Sentosa Resort & Spa

Perched atop a cliff with breathtaking views of the South China Sea, The Sentosa is a luxury island resort perfected with stylish design and relaxation offerings holidaying parents would waste no time to enjoy. The resort hotel’s interiors are stunning; designed by Ed Tuttle, the same creative brains behind Bangkok’s famous hotel The Sukhothai. An 18-hole championship golf course and the many attractions on Sentosa Island such as Universal Studios Singapore and the Underwater World are just minutes away. One Agoda.com customer mentioned that her children got excited with The Sentosa’s free roaming peacocks within its surrounds. Sounds like an ideal family getaway place, indeed.

Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa

Singapore’s only beachfront hotel located at the Sentosa Island: a good enough reason why this hotel remains as one of the highest rated in all of the Lion City. The hotel has gone through extensive renovation in 2011 and now boasts of 454 rooms that accommodates to an even wider range of traveler types. What makes the Shangri-La Rasa most ideal for family getaways is its children’s club Cool Zone, which provides kiddie activities for children aged 5 to 12 under a supervised environment.
