Wow, what a room. We had a hot tub on our huge balcony as well as a double day bed to lounge on. The views from the balcony and room were breathtaking. The rooms are big, ultra modern and high-tech. Although we had lots of visits from engineers to fix the control panel which operated everything, including the blinds which was annoying.

Lovely food in the restaurants - you can tell they use top quality ingredients. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Although some might find the staff attention a tad overwhelming, we liked it.

We live in Singapore and spent a night in the hotel for my husbands birthday.(nice touch was a cake presented to him by the hotel). It seemed like a million miles from the crowded hustle and bustle of the city. The landscaping is beautiful and they have preserved a number of 'heritage' trees. In fact you can't see any other building from the hotel. It has an exclusive, quiet feel to the hotel. This may be to do with the hotel being very new and also the price - rooms are very expensive, but I would say worth it for a very unique experience.

Bob's bar - although the name seems not to fit - is fab with loungers and that view again. It is only a matter of time before this catches on as 'the place' to have sundowners in Singapore.

Met a friend here for high tea - what a fantastic hotel. Architecturally stunning, high quality modern design. Goes from "Raffles style" lobby to "designer style" outside. The Best pool in a Singapore hotel I've seen - 2 tier infinity pool - you can judge a hotel by its pool! (Private pools with some room too). Haven't seen accommodations, but website photos look sleek. High Tea in The Knolls was very nice, drink on the daybeds at bar very chilled. Someday I will stay here for a relaxing break, but keep the business stays to other hotels.

We discovered Capella by chance through tripadvisor as had initially planned to go to Datai on Langkawi or Sentosa spa. We made a great choice. The hotel is stunning, a very clever blend of contemporary architecture with colonial touches. The rooms define hitech with electric curtains, blinds etc. Food was excellent, especially dinner menu at Knolls. At least 3 wonderful infinity pools and all the normal gym, spa etc. But most of all service was impeccable and rivalled and even exceeded the four seasons where we are loyal devotees. GM on site to say goodbye. Nothing was too much trouble. Fine tennis court, cool enough to play after 6pm. Arjun the tennis coach was terrific, technically very strong and great guy. Strongly recommended. All in all, this is a fabulous hotel that will only get better as it matures. We cant wait to take our family to some of their other properties.....Four Seasons has its work cut out

I recently had my second stay at Capella. What I love about the place is that it's enticingly serene and secluded and yet still so accessible to all who need a break from the hustle and bustle of city life in Singapore. The rooms (recommend those with sea views), ambience and service, ranging from the reservations team, reception, butler, spa & F&B support, are outstanding, and the experience is well worth its 6 star price tag. Even the feedback from my first stay was noted, which they followed up with me during my second stay.The spa is fantastic and extremely spacious; I would advise going about 30 min before the appointment to enjoy the private heated pools. This hotel is also probably one of the very few, if not the only one in Singapore, that offers free soft drinks from the rooms' mini bar fridges as well as decaf teas on the menu. I highly recommend this resort to all who are looking to celebrate a special occasion or simply just to get away from it all. Once you are at Capella, you really can't believe that you are still in Singapore!

I stayed at the Capella on Sentosa Island for 2 nights in November with my partner. We were lucky enough to stay in a Villa with a private pool. We both absolutely loved the Capella. It is modern, funky and friendly. The villa had the most amazing high tech details… everything controlled by buttons on a control panel by the bed. Separate aircon units in every room (bathroom/bed/living), 2 plasma TV’s (bed/living), 2 iphone plug in’s for the stereo. All blinds were controlled by the panel too.. my partner who is a bit of a tech freak was over the moon.
There was also a free mini bar and a nespresso machine in the villa.. all the little details that makes it so much more luxurious.
Having a wonderful terrace and a private plunge pool means it is difficult to drag yourself away from the privacy of your villa though!
The pool area is divided into 3 level’s.. with 3 pools staggered down the hill with plenty of sun loungers at each one. Walking around the grounds you come across quite a few of the resident peacocks!! The grounds are amazing (lots of wonderful flowers everywhere) with a resort feel to it.
I would highly recommend the Capella to anyone going to Singapore. Yes it is a 20 min taxi ride out to Sentosa island but after spending the day shopping, sightseeing and walking around Singapore there is nothing better than going back to the Capella to chill!

I am travelling with my wife and we are celebrating our anniversary, the experience is a dream come true, the rooms are just perfect, that you would not ask anything more. The strategic location of the hotel is just perfect, everything you need is in their hotel. I like everything that you could not ask for more.

Stayed at the Capella hotel for 9 nights on our trip to Singapore and didn’t want to leave. We had lovely spacious room, great bathroom, FABULOUS bed, bedding and towels. Staff were wonderful as were the people who cleaned our room daily. One thing I have to point out that I have never experienced such a great and efficient room service in any hotel I've stayed before. You make the call to the room service department and whatever you've ordered its fresh, crispy, hot and mega tasty in your room just 25 minutes later. The Chinese restaurant is phenomenal too. The staff very attentive, helpful and genuine too, what an amazing hotel. One of the best I have ever stayed in. What an amazing hotel. One of the best I have ever stayed in!!!
