Sentosa is a great place for a weekend staycation. However, most of the hotels are nestled in secluded spots around the island. While its perfect for those looking for a serene hideaway and exclusivity, the resorts are far from Sentosa’s attractions, the vibrant food and beverage scene, and even the lively beaches.

Village Hotel at Sentosa by Far East Hospitality is set to change that. Opened on 1 April, the hotel is Sentosa’s latest accommodation offering, and is a gateway to a wave of brand new amenities and activities. The highlight of Village Hotel at Sentosa is its convenience, boasting proximity to theme parks, lush rainforests, golden beaches, and myriad of dining options — all a walking distance, or a quick tram ride away.

The hotel itself features all the facilities you need for a weekend staycation, such as a pool deck with themed pool zones, expansive gardens and outdoor spaces, as well as a fantastic restaurant for both in-house guests and external customers alike.

Walking into the lobby of the hotel, you’ll come across Native Kitchen, the latest islander-inspired restaurant managed by Refinery Concepts. The all-day dining restaurant serves up authentic and wholesome cuisine from the tropics in a setting that encourages the sharing of meals. The menu features the best of Asian and Polynesian island culture and cuisine, using the freshest ingredients and culinary techniques that bring out the natural flavours of the ingredients.

If you prefer dining outside the hotel, take a leisurely walk and you’ll find yourself on the doorsteps of some of the best restaurants on Sentosa, be it Mediterranean restaurant and beach club FOC Sentosa or Coastes Singapore, a casual beach-side restaurant and bar located on the golden stretch of Siloso Beach.

For those looking for an adrenaline rush, the recently-opened AJ Hackett Sentosa, Singapore’s only bungy jump, is just 10 minutes away. The site stands 50m above Siloso Beach, featuring a Giant Swing and 47m Bungy Jump, as well as a 40m Skybridge offering the unparalleled sunset views. Alternatively, the iFly Singapore boasts the world’s largest themed wind tunnel for indoor skydiving.
