Updated on March 13, 2013

Traveling to Singapore?

In Singapore, where it is known for its hustle and bustle of the city and its hectic pace lifestyle, it is quite difficult to find a place where one can enjoy the sun, the sand and the beach all in one place. It is also quite a challenge to find a place where one can kick back and tan along a white sandy beach, enjoying the tranquil and being pampered by cocktail drinks served by the friendliest crew in Singapore. However, these places do exist and they are indeed a must-place to go for travelers and tourists in Singapore.

Known for its tropical climate, there are indeed no seasons in Singapore. Though there are monsoon seasons at the start and at the end of the year, Singapore’s beaches can be generally enjoyed throughout the year and what better way to enjoy the beaches than through the resorts that are located by these beaches?

Best Tourist Resorts in Singapore

Singapore’s resorts are mostly located on the island of Sentosa, an island located near the southern tip of Singapore. The island can be accessed by a shuttle service that goes along a bridge connecting Singapore to Sentosa, or by one’s own vehicle. Sentosa can also be accessed by a cable car service or a monorail at generally affordable prices. Sentosa is known to be an entertainment island renowned for its tranquility and peacefulness (Sentosa means tranquil in Malay), since it is located away from the heart of the city.

Once in Sentosa, one can pick amongst the seven available resorts on the island. The Rasa Sentosa Resort is run by the world-renowned Shangri-La. Located on Siloso Beach; The Rasa Sentosa is offers the famous Shangri-La experience in a beach resort setting. With over 400 luxury rooms for guests, The Rasa Sentosa offers a complete spa experience for the whole family or a holidaying couple. The Rasa Sentosa also offers its guests sea sports activities such as kayaking and paddle boats for those with a knack for adventure and exploration.

Capella offers its guests the Auriga spa, the best spa experience one can have. Besides its spa, Capella also offers over 100 guestrooms.

      Ahhh! I am trying to decide between Thailand and Singapore for my next vacation, but every article I read just makes the decision harder. Maybe I will have to do both... Great hub!
