Only 10 minutes from the mainland by train, car or cable car, Sentosa is easily accessible to pop over for a day, weekend or even a spot of lunch.
My home in Asia for two days, I stayed at the Costa Sands Resort on Siloso beach and felt truly welcomed by the wonderful staff there. They went out of their way to ensure I had a great time and felt comfortable. I had my own beach hut with 2 bunk beds in it, a stone’s throw from the golden beaches and warm, calm sea. There was even a peacock roaming around the beach huts to keep me company.

When I found out I was coming to Singapore, I remembered a picture my brother sent me years ago, of the most incredible pool suspended from 3 towers. An infinity pool unlike any other. A pool of my wildest dreams. This pool is the SkyPark at the top of Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore, the jewel of the city. Ever since I first laid eyes on that photo, it has been my dream to go there.
Today that dream came true! Unfortunately, I couldn’t afford to pay the $400 a night that it costs to stay there so I had to find another way.
Think of sandy beaches, palm trees and beach bars.
Think shipping lanes and huge cargo ships on the horizon.
Think Disney Land.
Mix them together, and you have…Sentosa!
Sentosa – an island full of fun for everyone. Opposite the world’s busiest shipping port
