"'When the hurlyburly's done.......'"
....retreat to the serenity of the Capella on Sentosa Island and re-charge your batteries. For this is perfect peace, in extensive, well manicured grounds, with amazing service that leaves no wish ungranted and barely 20 minutes from the commotion of Singapore's Central Business District. The heart of this property is four historic buildings built in mid-Victorian colonial style (and, prior to Singapore's independence. the home to the UK Royal Artillery). The main building now houses the hotel reception and public rooms including, on the first floor, a library and executive lounge for guests. The historic buildings are perfectly complemented by an adventurous modern bedroom wing in the ground floor of which is to be found the main restauarant and Bob's Bar. A second restaurant (in the main building) also serves Chinese food (including Dim Sum specialities). Service is personal and attentive and food quality up to the high standards set by the hotel itself. The property has two swimming pools and is otherwise so complete that one hardly has either the need nor desire to leave the grounds. With justification, the Capella has consistently been voted one of the world's leading hotels. Viator Coloniae
"Excellent service and overall experience!"
I booked the Capella Hotel Constellation Room to celebrate a friend's birthday and it was nothing short of a wonderful experience. It started from the moment we checked-in. At the reception, we was greeted by the Ms Peggy Koh, the Assistant Manager of Personal Assistant at Capella. When she saw my friend was blindfolded, she immediately got the hint that we were trying to surprise him and without us having to us, she played along with us and led my friend to the room. The surprise was indeed a success and it wouldn't have been if not for Peggy's help. Througout the stay, their staff attended to our every need, from providing us with various amenities to make our stay more comfortable to helping us check our air-condition when it the room got warm and stuffy. Everything was attended promptly. Our experience during breakfast was also excellent. They made sure we know of thier ala-carte items on the menu that we were able to order from the start and even handled another guest who just came to sit at our table halfway through our breakfast very well without creating a comotion and ensuring that we had our privacy at our table. The staff also periodically came to check on us to make sure that we were enjoying our food and they were very knowledgeble about the items on the menu when asked what was in thier sauce that came with their French Toast which was just delicious. The icing on the cake was according us late check-out all the way to 3pm the next day!!! Really kuedos to Peggy and the team at Capella for a wonderful experience indeed and I will definitely come back when the opportunity arise again!!! A definite recommendation for anyone who is thinking of choosing them!!!
"BEST Staycation EVER!"
Whether is it a staycation or a full fledged vacation, I am sure, we all want to be pampered by the hotel staff, the amenities, the services, etc in the property that you stay in. And CAPELLA SINGAPORE did just that! 2 families of 2 adults and 2 kids each checked into the 2 premier rooms (which they graciously gave us adjacent rooms!) and were immediately greeted by the luxurious amenities in the rooms as well as the extravagant space provided by a premier room! Free mini-bar, fruit platters, coffee machine, etc... With 3 pools to choose from and the proximity to Palawan Beach (by foot), the kids were spoilt for choice when it comes to activities in the sun and water. Lastly but most importantly, a fully equipped properly can't function without a dedicated team! EAM-Rooms, Mr John Png, together with Nizam and team, ensured that both families were well taken care of right from check-in till check-out. Non-stop, fuss free assistance were rendered with a smile. They have just raised the bar for hospitality service! A truly beautiful and unforgettable experience! Thank you John, Nizam and team. Thank you Capella Singapore.
"Happy stay again!"
Very nice view and food. Even it rains for few days, I can still see the lucky peacock outside restaurant Knolls! Captain of Knolls said he saw white peacock once too. Very lucky to see the white one. I hope I can see it next time. Special thanks to Peggy Koh. Will definitely come again for holidays;)
"A must stay in Singapore "
The Capella was the first stop on our 2 week Southeast Asia vacation and it was the perfect start! An ideal location to recoup from jet lag. The hotel itself is a stunning combination of old and new. It is on Sentosa island which is just a 15 minute cab ride or sky tram away from the city center. We stayed in the plunge pool suite which was spacious, beautiful and private. The Grounds of the hotel are stunning and perfectly manicured with a tropical jungle feel. There are 3 pools that tier one another that were quiet and crowd free during our visit. We had the adult pool all to ourselves! The main bar- Bobs bar, is a perfect place to spend a warm evening sipping on one of their delicious signature cocktails as peacocks roam in and out of the area. It was absolute serenity. The service was outstanding. Everyone warm and friendly and accommodating to our needs. On our way home to the states we had one additional night in Singapore. We decided to mix it up and stay at another hotel- The Sofitel. BIG mistake (read my review)! We missed the Capella so much we ended up having dinner there that night. As we were dining the manager approached us and asked how our stay was. We told him the mistake we had made and how much we enjoyed our stay at Capella. He thanked us profusely for our compliments then handed us his card and said next time we were in town to email him. I couldn't recommend this hotel enough for anyone traveling to Singapore and looking to escape a bit from the heart of the city. We will be back!
