We arrived early, as usual the room was not ready for check in but this time we have been offered another room until the suite was ready! The Sentosa Suite was amazing, situated at the 5th Floor with great views to the sea and I have to mention this; a rain shower that finally deserves the name. The breakfast buffet was the best ever! From Taittinger Champagne, Eggs Benedict to Roti Prata or Laksa, the ususal stuff of course too...
"Wonderful Sunday brunch!"
If you plan to enjoy a Sunday brunch, Capella hotel definitely worth it! First, the place! This colonial architecture is superb, and when you take your seat in Knolls, around the pool in nature.. it's fantastique! Regarding the food, Chef David and his team prepares for you a large choice of cold and hot dishes buffet and also, they will bring some surprises at your table! Everything is Top quality! Finally, the group playing during the all afternoon is really nice, and brings you abroad! We really had a great moment in Capella Singapore!
"Classic and Romantic location"
Nested in the quiet end of Sentosa, Capella is nothing like the rest of this tacky theme park island filled with tourists. We stayed in the Constellation Room on the upper level with a panoramic sea view and an outdoor privite jacuzzi. Tranquil and peaceful surrounded by lush tropical greens, great for a break from the city. The room is elegantly furnished with everything and more: refreshment, coffee machine, Bose sound system, nice linens, large LCD TV, king size bed, wifi...and lots of breathing space. The garden ground is beautifully landscaped and there a lovely colonial style library near the reception, that offers snacks and refreshment. The service is subtile and professional. Oh yes the Auriga Spa is wonderful too! Highly recommendation for an idyllic break with your love one!
Beautiful and very large rooms with remote control everything! Staff are very helpful and restaurants that i sampled were very good. There's a great blend of indoor and outdoor spaces and the resort makes you feel that you're a million miles from the hustle and bustle of Singapore CBD.
"Luxury stay with an "Ubud" feeling"
Just finished a one night stay with my wife at the swanky Capella hotel in Sentosa. This is our second time staying here and it was much better than the first. The Capella is really one of a kind in Singapore, boasting colonial architecture and modern luxury amenities, while being surrounded by lush hilltop greenery and all a stone's throw away from the beach. The rooms we stayed in had beautiful panoramic views of the Singapore Straits, set amidst "jungle" scenery and overlooking the three tiered hotel pool which was reminiscent of Ubud. Big and comfortable rooms. What I particularly liked about the hotel was its spacious and comfortable rooms, the day bed with amazing views as well as the oversized bath area and spa toiletries. A cool feature was the automatic blinds which would come down when one left the room to block out the sun and miraculously come up again once you re-enter. The free mini bar, the built-in Bose sound system and free cable TV with football were little boons that went a long, long way. One minor complaint would probably be about the in-room lighting system which i couldn't fully comprehend and the switches were also too spread out. It would have been nice if all the switches could be controlled from a central panel and made to be idiot proof for buffoons like me. Prompt, efficient service. The hotel called me a day before check-in to see if i had any special requests which was really nice. Most of the staff we encountered were warm and friendly and acceded to our requests with minimal fuss. When the operator said they would get back to us, we normally didn't have to wait longer than 3 mins for a reply. Free, kids friendly lounge The Library, which is the Capella lounge is accessible to all guests and also accommodates young children. It is situated on the 2nd floor of a refurbished colonial house and decorated grandly. They have snacks, coffee/tea and soft drinks throughout the day and even port at night. I was afraid that my kids would knock and break their beautiful china or some antique, but that didn't seem to bother the service staff there who even helped us to make hot chocolate. Good quality breakfast. Breakfast was a mix of a la carte and buffet, and the outdoor seating meant you could mingle with the morning visiting peacock which was popular with the kids. I would say that the variety and quality was good, but typical of any 5 star hotel in Singapore. While they cannot beat hotel breakfasts like The Line Restaurant (Shangri-La) or Edge (Pan Pacific Singapore) in terms of variety, they might do better to inject some creativity into their a la carte menu, maybe taking a leaf from St Regis by serving-in limited portions- something like lobster/cavier omelette. All in all, the Capella still stands out as a top 5 star property that is perfect for couples looking to pamper themselves and relax in an Ubud-type setting without flying to Bali. While not cheap, it is worth the splurge every once in a while and provides the privacy that other luxury hotels in the city centre cannot match. Would recommend!
