The Siloso Beach Resort is one of my favourite hotels all time! Located on the paradise island Sentosa outside Singapore city it's just a quick ten seconds walk to the beach. The rooms are huge, and if you get a room on one of the higher floors you'll have a great view over the ocean.
But that's not the best though, as the breakfast is yet to come. Don't miss it whatever you do, not for all the money in the world!
Seated on the terrace next to the beach (okay fine, a beach club that is located in between the terrace and the beach is just a tiny bit in the way...) you'll enjoy the calmness, the fresh fruits, the amazing omelette, the juice, the sweet cookies. And at the same time look at the squirrels running around you, looking for a piece of watermelon to chew on. So damn cute!
The peacocks that come by every now and then are a bit bigger than the squirrels and a bit scary, but quite exotic for sure!
Only problem after this is that all other hotel breakfasts taste like crap...
As written above the rooms are huge, and so are the bathrooms. If you get one of the suites on the top floor you'll have your own jacuzzi/pool with a view over the ocean. Only problems we've had on our visits here was once when we had ants in the room. Not many, but enough to make me feel uncomfortable (to Herny's big joy, her boyfriend getting afraid of ants...). Two seconds later the staff had given us a new room, very nice.
Always very good service, the parking is free, and the swimming pool and sun deck is huge. The waterfall next to the pool is quite nice too.
Only problem is that the area is too calm and nice, so it's way too easy to get stuck there with a good book instead of going out and explore the island.
The hotel is located on the south west side of Sentosa, but it's walking distance to everything. 5-10 minutes walk to both the Underwater World and the train to Singapore.
The restaurant area is open also for lunch, although that's nothing special. Plenty of nice restaurants for dinner in the area though.
When we were here there was a a nice promotion of "stay four nights and earn 30 per cent discount" which gave us a price per night of about 80 euro (including taxes and service charge). Well worth the money for sure.
Last time I checked though that discount was gone, and the price was rather high.
The beach is white and great, and perfect for a long walk. The view is quite stunning, as hundreds of huge ships pass by on its way into Singapore harbour every day.
And, you do the math and swim in the water if you want. But I think I rather pass and let the ships and their mess have the sea for themselves...
Unique Quality: The breakfast. Oh. The. Breakfast.
