Capella Singapore
Singapore

Set on Sentosa Island, Capella Singapore is a modern yet historic retreat in the midst of the tropical rainforest but just minutes away from the city by taxi. This tranquil 30-acre sanctuary blends together the best of old-world architecture, modern design and lush landscaped gardens. It is comprised of heritage-listed buildings and colonial manors dating back to the 1880s (once the homes of officers in the British Royal Artillery), which blend seamlessly with the new part of the hotel – the Norman Foster-restored buildings. These are designed in a curvaceous figure eight shape, an auspicious number in Chinese culture, and give the resort a cutting-edge contemporary feel. The main colonial lobby building is instantly captivating from the moment your car crunches up the driveway; set up on the crest of the hill, the building is gleaming white with handsome columns and vintage cars parked outside. Inside you will find a beautiful library and tea room with high ceilings and antique furniture. Capella has managed to retain the magic and charm of this colonial time whilst being brought bang up to date by Norman Foster’s skilfull touch.

Capella has 112 rooms, of which 38 are private villas with their own private swimming pools and outdoor showers. This includes 72 sea-facing suites and duplexes, two Colonial Manors at 436-sqm each, and nine Contemporary Manors at 391-sqm, both with 3 bedrooms. Designed by world-renowned interior designer Jaya Ibrahim, the décor is chic and understated, with high quality materials and mod-cons, lots of wood and a soothing, soft colour palette. One of Capella’s stand-out features is its service; every guest has their own Personal Assistant who contacts them before their stay to introduce themselves and offer assistance. They can assist with arranging various experiences such as canoeing, cooking classes, cycling, golf, kids’ programmes, sailing, customised tours to local markets, nature reserves and Southern Islands. The resort has a stunning bar, Bob’s Bar, perfect for alfresco cocktails overlooking the South China Sea, an all-day dining restaurant, The Knolls, set next to the curvy three-tiered swimming pool, and a Chinese restaurant serving up fine dining cuisine and a fantastic weekend dim sum lunch. There is a tennis court and fitness centre, or for those more interested in relaxation and pampering, Capella has a fantastic award-winning spa, Auriga Spa, which uses natural organic products from The Organic Pharmacy. Great for both families and couples looking for a romantic hideaway, Capella provides plenty of room to stretch out and unwind in a gorgeous secluded setting.
