W Singapore Hotel: Where To Stay In Sentosa Cove


We do another front-crawl race across to the other end of the pool before we get onto the floating bean bags and enjoy the tropical sun. Moments later, the bar staff brings us our Singapore Sling cocktails and as I immerse myself in this luxurious resort experience, I catch Glenn sneaking in a selfie with the surroundings. We’re at W Singapore Sentosa Cove and I’m sure that won’t be the only photograph he’ll be taking.

Glenn and I are on our way back to Sydney from Hong Kong and under the influence of friends who held accolades for W Hotels, decide to take a detour to the Lion City for a few days and stay at W Singapore. The hotel is a contemporary resort playground where guests relax and daydream. It’s a much needed recharge for us two after a hectic few months as we are ready to kick back for some sunshine and indulgence.

W Singapore Sentosa Cove, Marvelous Suite

We stay in the Marvelous Suite which boasts an expansive living area, separate bedroom and a balcony with a private plunge pool that overlooks the tranquil South China Sea. The finishes of the room are a mix of organic and modern where floral motifs decorate the wall, pattern carpets line the floor and quirky lampshades illuminate the room. We get comfortable very quickly (ok, we were crazily ecstatic for a good twenty minutes at the opulence when we first walked in) and are ready to soak in the W Experience.

The weather in Singapore is perfect for our tropical vacation, the kind where sipping cocktails by the idyllic pool makes perfect sense. We waste no time in swapping our dapper attire for speedos and head to the main pool where we water-bomb jump (do we ever grow up?), lounge on the floating bean bag and enjoy refreshing cocktails by the pool-side bar.

There’s a W Insider in every W Hotel (including W Hong Kong which we vistied) who is your go-to for all local tips, from where to shop and eat to where the coolest parties and events are. Our insider gives us a tour of W Singapore, indulging our curiosity for the design aesthetic of the resort and also invites us to the trendy Woobar to savour their high tea with a twist.

Featuring an array of delectable sweets and savouries, the treats are served in an inventive bird-cage that is a reflection of the the lobby’s urban jungle aesthetic. Like every other Woobar, the one at W Singapore comes alive at night with acclaimed DJ sets and this is also where Glenn and I pretend to be trendy celebrities and enjoy our Singapore Sling.

What sets the W Hotel chain apart from many others is their approach and success in merging art and design with luxury. Each W Hotel works with artists and designers, including local ones, and brings their conceptual vision together to tie in with the hotel’s thematic direction. Every art piece has a story and is curated from findings around the world. You often have to take a second look to discover the subtle details or quirky nature.

W Singapore’s theme around an urban jungle (a cascading waterfall of projected graphic patterns, pebbled walls made of 100 percent natural wood) is executed with such innovation and is a welcoming contemporary change to the hotel industry. The hospitality of the W Singapore staff is world-class – attentive, sincere and cool – and form an integral part of the glamorous W experience. It’s easy to get used to this lifestyle so plan another day or two there solely to relax and recharge (trust me, you would want to).
