Quiz time: how do you get away from Singapore without really going out of the country? Go to Sentosa lor. At least you can say that you were away from the mainland, right? It’s also a really shiok place to have a staycation because it’s a resort island after all.
If you are willing to splurge – because you have been saving up for your Peru expedition since 1995 but then 2020 happened – Capella Singapore is where you should park your money, luggage and waiting-to-be-pampered bodies.
The luxury hotel resort on Sentosa is known for its lush sprawling grounds, classy villas, wandering peacocks, swanky Auriga Spa and views of the South China Sea (yeah, that’s not the Johor Straits that you are looking out at from the private jacuzzi in your villa). Bonus points: it’s also dog-friendly – though your furkids aren’t allowed to roam freely about the premises and in the restaurants, for instance.
Feeling gian already? The deal gets even sweeter this festive season because, until Nov 30, four Capella Suites staycations will be up for bidding, starting from $3,000. All proceeds will benefit the Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN).
What you will get if you are the winning bidder: one night’s accommodation on Christmas Eve or New Year Eve, breakfast for two at The Knolls, dinner, a 60-min Auriga Signature Massage for two at Auriga Spa and more.
Yes, so start thinking about your Instagram #humblebrag captions now.
If you have maxed out your retirement funds on your villa bid (but, hey, you did it for a good cause!), there are a few free things to do on Sentosa, like hanging out at Tanjong Beach, Siloso Beach or Palawan Beach, or going on the Sentosa Nature Discovery walking trail.
But if you still have moolah from your trust fund, you can ride a Segway, swing down the 450m-long zipline at the Mega Adventure Park, take a cable car, visit the S.E.A Aquarium, and pose with mascots at Universal Studios Singapore.
Okay lah, and if you die-die must go shopping, we won’t judge you if you go back to the mainland just to pop into VivoCity.
Sure, you can stay within the Capella Singapore grounds and wine and dine there 24/7.
But here are some other options. There’s Malaysian Food Street with its hawker stall-style concept so you can feast on Penang char kway teow, KL-style Hokkien mee and chendol (because still cannot go to Malaysia yet).
To further elevate your already-atas staycation, book a table at Resorts World Sentosa’s Ocean Restaurant which is located “inside” an aquarium. So, as you eat, sea creatures will swim past your table.
If you are with your four-legged friend, a few cafes on the island are dog-friendly, including Coastes where you can indulge in your Eggs Benedict and Kombucha on a lounger right by the (manmade) coastline.
