Really, the best spot to get away from it all
From quick family-friendly weekends to those spent with your significant other doing all things romantic; Sentosa Cove’s W Singapore provides a fabulous backdrop to staycations of all kinds. To put your mind at ease, they have been certified ‘SG Clean’ and have all precautions in place to welcome guests.
Nestled within the uber-luxurious Sentosa Cove that is lined with both superyachts and super homes you could truly get away from the city AND the island’s hustle and bustle and just stay within this luxurious cocoon. All you need to eat, drink and do is right at your doorstep.
From spectacular rooms to the WET pool (which is easily their top draw) and more, bring your sunscreen, swimsuit, face maks and get set for #vacayvibes like none other.
At the W, the rooms are named ‘Wonderful’, ‘Spectacular’, ‘Fantastic’ and similar adjectives and all of the above are for good reason.
All rooms come fitted with LED TVs that are at least 40”, mood-lighting, top-notch sound systems and eclectic decor. The most covetable are those that offer marina views, balconies, in-room plunge pools and terraces with their own daybeds.

Things to do
The W’s pool is one of Singapore’s largest outdoor pools, and guess what - the WET pool is open 24 hours a day, so even though you need to book a slot to access it, there is plenty of time for a dip - did anyone say midnight swim?
Is it really a staycation without booking yourself in for a spa sesh? The AWAY Spa has got you covered. Apart from the fabulous treatments, spa-goers can also decompress with the sauna, steam room, whirlpool, herbal bath and experiential showers.
Did not get a spa booking? Fret not, All guests can also access the Spa's Vitality Pool; this is complimentary, and guests above 18-years-old can take a relaxing dip in zen-like confines.
Of course, you can laze all day, but if you would rather work out, the FIT fitness centre is amazing! It is 235-square-meter, state-of-the-art with panoramic garden views through floor-to-ceiling windows. Apart from the gym equipment, there are yoga mats, medicine balls, punching bags and more, along with Fitvibe and Kinesis One technology -- plus unparalleled energy that makes going the gym fun.
For all of the above, slots need to be booked in advance to comply with safe distancing measures.
Food and Drink
