12 Hotels In Sentosa For Major Out-Of-Singapore Staycation Feels

Best Sentosa hotels for staycations

Holidays and staycations go hand in hand, especially for those who don’t intend on jetting off to another country. But if you’d still like a little distance between you and your workplace, a short stay at Sentosa will be the perfect solution. 

From atas villas with lush greenery to minimalistic hideaways perfect for couples, here are 12 Sentosa hotels for staycations.

1. Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa – Free arts & crafts activities for kids

Think luxury hotels and Shangri-La will no doubt be mentioned. You’ll find Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa (from $506/night) right next to Siloso Beach, so you know you’re guaranteed unblocked views of the sea. You can also expect spacious rooms as this beachfront property is ginormous – no need to squeeze your luggages in one corner. 

Parents will also appreciate the kid-friendly room where kiddos can run wild at – they can whizz down the long tree-trunk inspired slide, hop into the ball pit, or tackle the mini obstacle course. There are also free arts and crafts activities too, including picture colouring and decorating a photo frame.

The whole fam can also take a dip at the swimming pools – there’s a shallow kids pool with slides for the kids as well. Guests can also rent kayaks and stand-up paddleboards for free, so older children can enjoy some water activities.
