Vacation and visit
the room and the area of hotel is great, we love the swimming pool with steps design and facing the the ocean. it's in the Sentosa area so you need a ride to go back to downtown for other activity, i would suggest you spend 2 nights in downtown and 2 nights in Sentona to wrap up your trip. The restaurant also serving great food with budget price, we want go again! and it's budget price even during the F1 period.
A review which came slightly late on tripadvisor (but review on Google). Small but well-kept hotel. Good location with good view. Reception area is cozy and love the retro design and showcasing of the hotel's own brands/products. Check-in is fast and the welcome drink is refreshing and well-presented. The pick-and-choose snack area is quite a cool concept. Though the room is smaller than those that we have been to but love the coziness and the in-room amenities (e.g. toilet seats with warmer, spacious shower area). Design of the room is sleek and trendy. An eco friendly and green hotel. The hotel provides a ranges of pillow to cater to different needs. Breakfast selection is not vast but that does help with food wastage control. Did not really get to try out all the amnenities but the pool looks cool. The rooftop bar has a fantastic view too. Good place to chill and enjoy your staycation.
New Hotel, Great Pool
Pretty new hotel, good experience checking in. Located in Sentosa and had a good time lounging in the pool. Had some hiccup during the stay and the hotel is nice to offer me complimentary meal. Will be back again.
Staycation almost by the sea
Check in lobby is at Level 3 and we actually dropped off at level 2 and took a lift to Level 3. The lobby was small but with a lot of seats and because the checking in is an elaborate process, it took a while. While waiting, we were served drinks. After the keys were collected wit the usual briefing, we had to select 5 items like juices, Starbucks chocolate drinks, premium snacks and not so premium cough drops. Although we were upgraded to a sea view, it was nothing fantastic. We saw part of the Beach station and a lot of cordoned off land undergoing construction which must have stopped because of covid 19. My daughters room faced the Pamukkale pool which was more interesting. She could see if the pool was crowded before deciding on going for a swim or just laze on the beach chairs in the water. Although the hotel is situated near the Palawan beach, it is really not easy to walk there, especially if the weather is scorching hot. No shelter or proper footpath so it is best to take the monorail from Imbiah Station to Beach Station. There is a shuttle bus from Level 2 which is a car park and it takes guests to some spots on Sentosa and eventually to VivoCity. Departure is half hourly. We took the shuttle to Resort World so that we could look for food since Native Kitchen in Outpost was closed... Just like the bar on Level 7 where the infinity pool is. The pool bar was closed because of the Covid 19 situation. Social distancing so crowds are discouraged. When we returned to the hotel after dinner, we got off at Imbiah Station and used Google Map to walk back to the hotel. It was a mistake. Google Map will show the location of the hotel but we ended at a coach park with no way to enter the staircases to get up to the hotel. Special passes were needed to tap for entry. Thankfully we called for help and were rescued by a staff member from the hotel. Realised that one of the doors really led to the hotel lobby. Lesson learnt. Exit Imbiah Station escalator and turn right. Go up some steps or ramp, cross at the zebra crossing and turn Left. Follow a footpath and reach a bus stop with a vending machine. Further ahead is the road entrance to Village Hotel which was out of bounds to visitors because it was used to house returnees with 14 day Stay home notices. There is a Mess hall which houses restaurants before reaching Village Hotel and there is a 7-11 with a sufficient collection of instant food and snacks. What impressed me about the room were the expensive crockery, spacious bathroom and an automatic toilet. There is a coffee machine with 4 capsules (yeah, they replace them daily) but we were not coffee drinkers. There is a pillow menu and you can call housekeeping for your special pillow with a pillow mist. The bottle stated lavender but it was completely scent less.. In fact, I suspected it was merely water although housekeeping staff told me it is supposed to help with sleep but has not scent. Huh? Breakfast was at 1V-U on Level 7. There is an ala carte menu and some selection of fruits, bread, croissant and porridge. There was seaweed butter which was savoury and nice. 3 juices and bottles of yogurt so don't expect a long buffet table. Anyway, it would have been a better experience if not for the pandemic going on. Wings of time which we thought we could see from our room was suspended. No Sentosa bus too. Wasn't too keen on the cable car ride which was within Sentosa and not to Mt Faber. USS was quiet because most rides were suspended. We had to practise social distancing.
When we first arrived we were offered a refreshing welcome drink that was made on the spot. Then we were asked to choose five snacks/drinks from the minibar that were complimentary. I thought this was a nice touch. The room was a bit small but the bed was very comfortable and we had a nice view of the beach. Although it was just for one night, we had a lovely stay. I would definitely love to come back again.
