Capella Hotel Sentosa
Besides the 6-theme hotels that are part of the integrated Resorts World Sentosa there are other luxury hotels on the island. Judging by the rating the hotel has on the most popular booking engine on the web (Booking.com) I would say this is the best hotel in Sentosa.
The price for a room starts somewhere at $475 per night for double occupancy, but the price is fair for what you get when being a guest of Capella Singapore.
Reading through the reviews posted on Booking.com (there are the most reliable, as only people who made reservations through their website, confirmed and stayed at the hotel, may post reviews) I found lots of interesting details about the perception of the guests of Capella hotel in Sentosa.
Most of the reviews sound like this: "The experience was simply ... magical! We'll definitely be back."
"I was blown away at the level of comfort and luxury at Capella. Although I had only booked a standard room, I felt I had walked into the equivalent of any other hotel's suite. The space, design, and comfort of the room was perfect."
