Siloso Beach Resort
Siloso Beach Resort is the only Eco resort residing on the beautiful island of Sentosa. Enjoy the only natural spring water landscape pool in Singapore, complete with a waterfall feature, while relaxing amongst the balmy shades of flora to the soothing sounds of cascading waters. There are rooftop garden suites complete with rooftop bath, the only kinds in Singapore.
The rooms, although small, were cosy and well made. I remember stepping into a room which was furnished with a beautiful, classy wooden bay window. Having a room that happened to overlook the pool and the garden, the view was beautiful.
Not only is this place close to the beach, the facilities are not too shabby as well. In fact, the garden that is within the hotel is rather like a nature trail in the midst of the blocks of the resort. The morning breakfast was not to shabby as well.
Amenities are good, you're close to the beach and Sentosa has so many attractions and beach bars now that you will definitely have lots to do - if you can get off the lounge chairs and actually do something that is.
If you're planning to visit the S.E.A Aquarium or Universal Studios, definitely worth staying here to maximize your time and minimize effort.
Breakfast was included in my package and while it was nothing mind-blowing, still above average and a delightful start to the day. From the hotel, it's a short walk to Siloso Beach where you can engage in a myriad of activities to keep you occupied. Visited Wavehouse and surfed for a couple of hours while having a few drinks at the bar. All in all, this is the perfect hotel for a local staycation and I'm certainly coming back again.
The reception was strangely located at the highest level and we had to walk across a small bridge/ walkway. This was when I started getting really excited, I expected the resort to be a clean, white-washed concrete building but no, there were plants and vines all around the place it made me feel like I was in some sort of jungle/ forest and I love it!
The room however had nothing special, just a regular square room with bed, television and bathroom. Went out for a swim as the pool was just located right outside our room, they have a waterfall, some slides and a relatively large pool. We ordered room service and gosh, we were served one of the yummiest burgers ever! (Or maybe I was just really hungry after the swim)
We explored the resort the next morning before checking out and was surprised to find the outdoor gym (literally, outdoor), some hammock by the pool (which we didn't notice the previous day) and an area whereby they had a mini garden which was quite educational as well!
I recommend all you people to give RWS a miss and try this mini jungle resort instead!
The breakfast was adequate and filling. But I just wish they had more than that for everything that we paid for. The staffs are great and very accommodating. We feel like being at home staying here.
The room was nice with simple decoration and amenities. We took the family room which is spacious and huge, perfect for a big family.
For the price we paid, I never regretted staying at this hotel. Love its location and it short distance to anything fun on Sentosa.
I booked it really last minute, just 2 days before and they managed to find a room for me. Not only so, I managed to get it on the 6th floor which meant a pretty good view of the beach (I'm easily content) and a bathtube (I am really easily content) and it's pretty roomy so I was happy!
They left a supplies cart outside my room and I am not too sure if it's a sign from God but it meant plenty of stocking up so thank you for the generosity you wonderful hotel. My friends came and the room could fit about 23 of us, so I'd say this place is great for gatherings.
We were all in the limbo between drunk and tipsy and needless to say we were all noisy but the management not only did not scream at me and demand to hold my mum ransom till I made the noise die down, they even helped me out of a particularly sticky situation I was going through.
Great place, would definitely come back for their rooftop garden suite.
Their roof garden suite is superb! Located along the top floor of the resort with beautiful sea view is the perfect romantic getaway for couples near home! Imagine how romantic is it to enjoy couple Jacuzzi under a starry night with a bottle of champagne? Talking about privacy? No worries! Each suite has their private stairway that lead to an open air private roof top! And the next morning when you rise and shine, the open roof terrace becomes a perfect sun tanning spot with 2 deck chairs.
Had breakfast together with squirrels running around, babes in bikini sun-tanning on Siloso beach, always smiley service staffs, what else can you ask for?
My parents and my brother and his wife also came to our room. Including my maid, there were ten people in the room and we still did not find that the room was too crowded. I imagined a lot of other hotel rooms, you would start to feel squeezy when there were more than six people in the room. But not this hotel room.
The only thing we felt a bit awkward was the toilet. The toilet does not come with a lock. With young children around, it becomes "stressful" using the toilet because children may just barge in and caught you in an embarrassing moment. My thought was this was a family suite and not a couple suite so a little privacy would be recommended.
The room didn't meet my expectations. It felt very much like a chalet and the 'rustic charms' as shown at the reception seemed like an excuse to hide the quality of the place. The room was small but we had a view of the beach.
However, I have to say that the pool is one of the best that I have been to in Singapore. They had slides and even floats! It gelled in well with the whole "outdoor-rustic" feel to the resort.
Service wise, it was alright, nothing extraoordinary. Overall a 3.5 for this resort as it was quite affordable as compared to the other hotels at Sentosa and for its location (near underwater world, Siloso Beach, IFly etc).
