My wife and I stay-cationed here and came away very happy with the experience. Here's my quick take...
- The Shangri-La Rasa is the only hotel on Sentosa with direct access to the beach, which is a big plus.
- The Sea View rooms really do offer great views of the South China Sea.
- Huge pool with distinct areas for families and grown-ups.
- Though the hotel is very large and was heavily occupied during our stay, we found the service staff to be gracious and eager to help.
- Surprisingly good breakfast.
- It's the closest you'll get to a cruise on land, which has its ups and downs. The downside is that, outside of your room, you're not going to get much in the way of seclusion—for example, expect the pool to be packed all day.
- Located on the far west end of Sentosa, it can be a challenge to reach other parts of the island and cabs can be really hard to come by at peak times. Sentosa offers a free bus service to all of the key attractions, but getting around was a bit of a pain.
BOTTOM LINE: If you're a couple, I'd recommend something more along the lines of the Capella or the new W, but if you're traveling with family and want a resort experience, the Shangri-La Rasa is tough to beat.
