Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa
Anyone looking for a honeymoon destination will be tempted by the Rasa Sentosa’s beach and large, open form tropical swimming pool; both a rarity in Singapore. This is a large resort hotel, with an excellent spa and a good restaurant offering A La Carte as well as an extensive international buffet for every meal.
If you are wanting a couple of days relaxation and to avoid the main city of Singapore, this is a great all round resort hotel. It is situated on Sentosa Island, with links via cable car, monorail or causeway to the mainland. Sentosa Island is the place to go for most of the non-retail based activities in Singapore; Underwater World, Dolphin Lagoon, the Dragon Walk, the famous Merlion and a Luge are all here, so there will be plenty to keep you occupied during your stay.
The resort is primarily targeted at families and is too big to offer a personal feel. The majority of the rooms are fairly basic by Singapore standards, without the luxurious touches aimed at the business travellers on the mainland. It is worth paying more for a suite at the very west end of the hotel; it is then quite a hike to the restaurant and lobby, but the room will be quieter and with great views out over the China sea.
Getting to the main shopping and entertainment districts, unless you take a taxi (20 mins), takes an hour via bus or monorail (both free for guests at the hotel) and MRT (underground trains).
The main appeal of the hotel to us was the fact it was situated on Silosa beach, but we found the beach to be man-made and dirty, although the water was delightfully warm. The romantic vistas we had imagined were rather spoiled by the 100 or so container ships moored in the waters around Sentosa island.
