WORDS BY: Dave Goldman.
The luxurious W Sentosa at Sentosa Cove is all about fun (part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts). I stayed here with my family last year and it was great to be back to experience what this hotel has to offer. This hotel is within the lively coastal area of Sentosa (Singapore’s resort Island which is connected to Singapore via a causeway. A quick 10 min drive to the shops, tourist attractions and business district). Opened in 2012, this property is perfect for couples, families and corporate (great conference facilities!) travellers. I was welcomed with a big smile from Cara, the wonderful ‘ W Insider’ on site. All W Hotels across the planet have ‘Insiders’ (a super concierge service) who are able to suggest the ‘best of the best’ services of the city that the W is located within, make restaurant reservations, assist with any need during your stay and generally have the low-down on what and where you should be hanging out. I love it. It’s really is like your own personalised concierge service.
I was placed in a ‘Wonderful’ Room at W Singapore, a lovely 40sqm mix of art, fashion, purple colour and bespoke furnishings. For those W fans who want to try something a bit different, I would lock in one of the ‘Away’ suites located within the relaxing (and you may never want to leave) ‘Away’ Spa. These rooms have their own private entrance from the Spa, windows that open (win) and even have their own terrace with private plunge pool. They are really heavenly and are perfect for honeymooners or couples wanting to escape into their own world (with all of W Sentosa’s services close at hand!). My highlight meals was of course breakfast at ‘The Kitchen Table’, a great concept involving a few cooking stations to cater for all tastes and needs and the delicious ‘Skirt’, a wonderful steakhouse restaurant with the works.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and look forward to returning soon! Thank you to the fantastic GM Stephane who really shines at W Singapore – Sentosa Cove. It’s great to see a hotel run by such a passionate and dynamic hotelier and you really feel Stephane’s influence amongst all the team at this property. They clearly enjoy working with such an awesome leader at the helm. Make sure to visit soon to have your own W experience.
