Lively beach club by day, come evenings, and their air-conditioned dining room is the place to be for an elegant meal had while gazing out at a pristine stretch of sand, lazy waters and the glittering ships beyond. Oysters, charcuterie and seafood platters are all worthy orders at this idyllic spot. To up the romance ante, Tanjong Beach Club organises a table on the beach, under the stars for a beach-side candlelit meal of coastal cuisine with wine pairing. If you are looking to pop the question or celebrate something big, consider this.
True to its name, Ocean at Resorts World Sentosa is like dining within an aquarium bubble, where you can savour a delicious meal while fishes, rays, sharks and other glorious sea creatures swim past.
They serve only the finest, sustainable seafood and the cuisine is Californian-Mediterranean, so expect a lot of seasonal, fresh flavours. Ask for a table facing the glass panels, they’re the best seats in the house.
Start with a pre-dinner cocktail at Capella Singapore’s Bob’s Bar. The Cuban-inspired, almost al fresco bar, impresses with their menu of bespoke rum cocktails, gorgeous vista views, laidback charm and the fact that you might be sharing your space with Capella’s (friendly and harmless) resident peacocks.
After this, head to dinner at the Capella’s Cantonese restaurant, Cassia. It’s plush, elegant and understated and the food is excellent. The Hong Kong-style Peking Duck is a signature for good reason, as is the Five Spice Roasted Yorkshire Pork Belly. A walk around the Capella’s historic grounds will help digest the meal and will be a fitting end to a fabulous evening.
Did you know that you could eat a meal inside one of the Cable Car’s cabins, while suspended several thousand feet above ground level? It’s quite the sky dining experience, and a delightful four-course meal is elaborately laid out in your very own private cable car cabin complete with decor to set the mood. The meal begins with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine, and you get chocolates as a parting gift.
If you would rather eat on solid ground, enjoy a round-trip joyride on the cable cars before heading to Dusk, the restaurant-bar at picturesque Faber Peak for spectacular sunset views from its vantage point. European tapas like a Parma Caesar Salad and Chorizo with Marble Potatoes can be paired with their wide variety of cocktails and wine.
We will let you in on our best kept Sentosa secret. Tucked away within the Equarius Hotel’s grounds is ESPA’s farm-to-table restaurant, Tangerine. The best end to a spa-date at award-winning ESPA is a meal at this elegant eatery.
The menu is designed by Thai Chef Ian Kittichai, so the flavours are still explosive with the use of herbs and spices grown in their own gardens. Delicious food made with whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, sustainable seafood, premium free-range poultry and grass-fed beef will make a health-conscious date very happy.
For a romantic experience like none other, Set sail with your loved one on a 4-masted, 22-sail superyacht. The Royal Albatross will sweep your beau off their feet.
The sunset cruise (6-8.30pm) sets the mood with a welcome drink, an exhaustive buffet spread featuring numerous live stations and a chance to explore the beautiful ship while taking in the city views as you sail around the island. The ship also offers Proposal and Birthday packages, where lovebirds can enjoy a sit-down dinner, champagne, and a photo op like none other (atop the ship’s mast or on the Flying Seat).
A romantic sojourn at The Cliff should begin with a drink at their lounge, complete with mood lighting, lounge beds and an unparalleled view of the South China Sea.
Proceed for dinner to the restaurant and feast on elevated Italian classics by Chef Simone. From house-made pasta to wood-smoked pizzas from a custom built oven. Ask for a table on their terrace to gaze out at the ships beyond, in-between bites.
An award-winning restaurant is a worthy choice for a date who enjoys fine food. At acclaimed chef, Sam Leong’s Forest, the contemporary Chinese fare coupled with high-ceilinged, rainforest-themed, sets the mood for a special meal.
Best enjoyed via his eight and ten-course Discovery menus, you can watch the master at work in his open theatre-style kitchen as tasting portions of dishes like the Alaska King Crabmeat Soup with Hokkaido Dried Scallop and Pumpkin, come out for you to savour.
Not all romantic restaurants need formal, fine-dining spots. The Wine Company is an excellent choice to kick back with a relaxed meal with your loved one. It’s right on the boardwalk and the views of the cable cars travelling the stretch of water that separates Sentosa and the mainland, cannot be beat.
Sunset is the perfect time to visit, and the food menu features a variety of Asian and Western mains. Ask the friendly staff for wine pairing recommendations, as they serve a wide range of new and old world labels.
