“As good as what we read!”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

Having reading so many reviews and hotel introductions when we were picking a hotel for our trip to Singapore, my husband and I finally chose Capella singapore on Sentosa Island mainly because of it's greenery, stunning view and the super good service stated by other travellers.
We were actually a bit worry about the distance but we found that it is actually like 7-10 mins from the city Centre! The greenery in the hotel area makes us feel very relaxing, and the staff is so helpful to help us with locations of all attractions that we wanted to go.
The villa we stayed in was spacious and very comfortable (even the bathroom is so big!), we really feel 'recharged' after having good sleep on the very cosy bed. The terrace outside the bathroom is lovely and it is also green! The little pool on the terrace was not for swimming yet it makes a good corner to relax and chat!
Would like to try the spa next time!

Stayed in Capella Suite of main building with our two boys (aged 7 and 5). We took a look at the villas and long stay apartments and were glad we chose to stay in main building. Much more convenient as you're in the centre of things: lounge, pool, library, restaurant etc. Sure the villas and apartments are much more spacious, but they don't have very nice views and are mostly quite dark even during the day. Also, you need to call a buggy to go in and out which is a bit of a hassle. Our suite is wonderfully bright with large bay windows overlooking the pools.

Beautifully designed building by Norman Foster. 3-tier pools, while not designed with kids in mind (no slides or other gimmicks) are of nice size and very relaxing.

Don't miss the library in the old heritage building above lobby where they serve complimentary pastries, coffee/tea and evening drinks in a lovely colonial setting. Great for reading papers in the morning or a quick cool down drink before or after an excursion.

Only glitch was slightly imperfect service: empty tissue boxes not refilled, half drunk glass of milk not removed during room makeup..... otherwise a almost perfect stay.

We also checked out the hotels in Resorts World next door - Capella is much more luxurious in every way - a tranquil oasis compared to a zoo!

Staying at Capella was great - everything was perfect. The room was comfortable and clean, the food excellent and the service was second to none. I LOVE the swimming pool there! Don't miss it!

We traveled with our 2 kids and booked a garden villa, the villas are large and was very comfortable, but opt for a sea view if want any views, the garden villas are completely blocked by greenery. the plunge pool is very small. service although not so personal for a small hotel was very good. The style of the rooms and the furniture is minimalist with all modern comforts and you need to be comfortable with gadgets to switch of the lights and close the curtains which I liked but I know its not everybody cup of tea.

The Capella is a (5-star) hotel located on Sentosa and exudes discreet elegance and charm without being ostentatious. Catered towards both tourists and locals who want something near nature and away from the maddening crowds and bustle of the city. With 112 rooms spanning over a large property, you will not really experience the sometimes-noisy crowds at hotels. It is really a totally different experience and though you have to splurge a bit (or a lot depending on your budget), it is definitively worth the experience!

Did you know that you can bring your pet dogs with you to the hotel, albeit they have to be 8kg and under to qualify.

I decided on a staycation birthday celebration and here is my take on my stay in a Premier Garden Room:

Pluses:
- Efficient check-in/out
- Chilled tea given upon check-in
- Nice clean and spacious room
- Comfortable bed and pillows
- Spacious bathroom
- Complimentary beverages replenshish daily
- Complimentary espresso shots and GRYPHON tea
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Bedside control-panel for the lighting, curtains, blinds and air-conditioning
- Walk-in wardrobe
- Bath tub with a nice view
- 3 Cascading pools (2 infinity pools and 1 lap pool) with an amazing sea view
- Cheerful and friendly staff introducing the place
- Welcome fruits delivered upon checking into the room
- Quiet and peaceful (not including the honking noises that the peacocks made)
- Generally helpful and cheerful staff who greeted you no matter where you are on the property
- The facilities were very nice and grounds were beautifully kept
- Free shuttle to Vivo City shopping mall

Minuses:
- Had to call twice for someone to fix one of the malfunctioning bedside light bulbs.
- One of the operators answering the phone could afford to sound more cheerful, instead of irritated.
- The room’s air-conditioning became a little warm at night.
- It gets really dim outside once night comes.
- Being so close to nature, there are bound to be insects.
- No birthday surprises (it would be weird to plan a birthday surprise for myself)

Recently stayed at the hotel with my friend and both of us were absolutely amazed by Capella Singapore! The staff is very welcoming and is eager to comply with every demand, the rooms are nicely decorated and have a pictureque view, the food is delicious! Auriga Spa is another thing that is worth talking about, as the spa treatments are very unique! We suggest trying the Moon Cycles spa treatment - it is something very authentic and worth trying!
If you want to keep sweet and pleasant memories of Sentosa island, you should definetly come and stay at Capella Singapore, as it is true paradise on earth with all the facilities a person can look for.
