We spent three nights with Barracks in August as a staycation. It was one of the best experiences in a resort hotel that we have ever had. The property exudes colonial charm with the architecture and objects back in those days well preserved. It is not big, but the intimate coziness and privacy more than compensate for the absence of other in-house facilities like a gym or spa. Our room is clean, tastefully designed, and connected right to the pool from the back. The evening cocktails are lovely, a clever use of their signature tea into the mix. There are a number of good restaurants within a short walk at the Mess Hall. There are even more choices for another 5 minutes of walk or so nearby at Resort World. While the physical property is great, the standout is the service. We were very well attended to by Melvin (pardon if the name is misspelled). He was among the best hotel staff that we have encountered in a leisure property around the well -- thoughtful, considerate and yet not intrusive, and always ready to go for an extra mile. Also, if you get a chance, please help yourself with their historic talk by two ex-military gentlemen. You will learn a lot about the place and the history. We are looking forward to visiting it again.
This hotel is located in Sentosa and positioned to offer exclusive experience to guests. For a start, only registered guests can enter the hotel premises. This can pose challenge if your family members plan to join you for the day. The stay comes with free flow of refreshment at a small restaurant located in the middle section on the ground floor. We had pre-dinner cocktail and breakfast there. The room is nicely decorated to fit the barrack theme. Rooms on the ground floor allow you to walk directly into the swimming pool. There is a nearby hall with restaurants. There is a good choice of food offerings, from Eurasian to Indian.
Memorable Wedding Anniversary Staycation
The stay was one of the best that we had in Singapore. We decided to do a staycation to celebrate our wedding anniversary, even though we are actually not a big fans of staycation. It was because The Barracks seems different from other hotels, we decided to try it. They totally exceeded our expectation! The room is clean, the service is top notch, the evening cocktail, pool access room, convenient buggy service and all the proactive, thoughtful offers to help suggesting restaurants, making reservation has made our stay very pleasant. This totally raised our expectation for the next staycation and we will definitely be back again. Highly recommended and kudos to Mr. Tono and his team!
Peaceful, Calm and Clean
We felt sufficiently removed from the hustle and bustle of city life. Perfect staycay location to just relax, uniwind and not do anything. It felt very private as there weren't a lot people during our stay. We got the suite - very spacious and clean with direct pool access. The bathrobe and mattress were so comfy and the staff were very present and pleasantly attended to us. Overall a wonderful experience.
Great ambience but not yet a flawless luxury experience
Beautiful building, grounds and room, with a unique feel. Really quiet and peaceful, which made for a restful staycation. The staff were very attentive and did everything they could to make us feel welcome and at home. However, we do think that there’s still some work to be done to deliver a luxury experience — small things like more discreet cleaning of the grounds and attentiveness to phone calls make a big difference. The food at the hotel was ok, but not to the level of other hotels on Sentosa. This is an important area for improvement as the options for food in the immediate vicinity are limited. Would have appreciated greater variety of food for in-room dining.
