Although most places on Sentosa Island have an artificial charm, Capella is a refreshing hidden treasure. I adore the place- especially the open bar area, the pool hidden amongst what seems like rainforests, and the mix of new /old architecture. The front part of the building that remains intact from colonial era blends nicely with the new modern wings designed by acclaimed firm Foster + Partners.

Bob’s bar – don’t be thrown off by the simple name, this lounging area is simply elegant.

My room had a beautiful view of the sea and shipping boats.

From the minute you step onto the property of Capella Hotel you will be impressed by the stunning resort. The location of the hotel means guests have endless activity options – from shoreline cruises to world-class retail shops. Sentosa Island -not only home to universal studios but also to golf courses and pristine beaches.

A variety of dining options are available in the Capella Hotel – ethnic dishes from the Mediterranean may be found at The Knolls, while a modern take on Chinese dishes is served at Cassia. Bob’s Bar, which takes a page out of those amazing lounges from the 50s and 60s, features a variety of wines and cocktails in a chic setting.
