Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa

Sentosa Island has always been one of our favourite short getaway places whenever we visit Singapore. Apart from being the home of Universal Studios Singapore and SEA Aquarium, Sentosa Island also houses some of the best luxury resorts in Singapore.

We took the opportunity for a staycation at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa which is located in a tranquil corner of Sentosa Island facing the South China Sea.

Getting There

We took Grab from the airport, the journey to the resort was less than 30 mins. Alternatively, you can also take the MRT to HarbourFront and there is complimentary shuttle bus services to Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa from Vivocity mall.

Check-In

Our check-in was a breeze, our room was ready upon our arrival at noon which was fantastic. As Accor Platinum member, the hotel briefed us about our member’s benefits such as complimentary room upgrade, early check-in and late checkout.

1. Room – Junior Suite

Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa features 174 luxury rooms, 37 suites and 4 villas across 7 room categories. The rooms design were inspired by Jardin du Luxembourg while elegantly infusing with natural elements and French eclecticism.

We were upgraded to the Junior Suite. Our contemporary well-appointed Junior suite is VERY Spacious at 592 square ft! The open concept suite features a bedroom, a living room and an ensuite bathroom. Free wifi is available throughout the resort.

The comfortability of the room, dining options and facilities are utmost important criteria as our main purpose was for a staycation.

While the room design was remarkable, if you are staying in this room, do take note of the multi mirror reflections.

3. LeBar – Afternoon Tea

The chic & cosy LeBar at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa is a great place to unwind beside the swimming pool. Grab a cup of freshly brewed coffee, delight yourself with their afternoon tea or linger over an icy cold beer.

The French Classic Afternoon Tea at LeBar which features a mouthwatering selection of devilish pastry is highly recommended.

  • $80++ for two with free-flow of premium Tea or Coffee selections
  • $119++ for two with 2 glasses of Taittinger Brut Champagne
  • $199++ for two with 1 bottle of Taittinger Brut Champagne

6. The Cliff

The Cliff is a modern casual restaurant that amazes guests with its authentic and mouthwatering Italian cuisine. Set against the mesmerizing panorama view of the South China Sea, diners can gaze at the amazing sunset while enjoying their meals.

For our dinner, we ordered:

  • Grilled Polpo Octopus with harissa, smoked eggplant, spiced chickpea
  • Squid ink Tonnarelli with Aglio Olio & Crab Meat
  • Jumbo Prawns with Arrabbiata sauce
  • Wagyu hanger steak with salsa verde
  • Tiramisu
  • 7 Texture Valrhona Dark Chocolate

Sunset view seat – Remember to reserve in advance for the seat.

I would recommend their Squid ink Tonnarelli with Aglio Olio & Crab Meat, Jumbo Prawns with Arrabbiata sauce & Wagyu hanger steak with salsa verde. While for dessert, my favourite would be their Tiramisu.

7. Kwee Zeen

The Kwee Zeen is Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa’s all-day dining restaurant and is where hotel guests enjoy their daily buffet breakfast.

Their weekly Champagne Sunday Brunch which showcases 16 live ateliers of epicurean delicacies has been touted by many as a must-try. Unfortunately, we were not on the right day hence unable to try it.
