“W WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We spent three nights at this stunning Hotel as a stopover before embarking on a Thailand Holiday.
It was probably a mistake as it set such a high standard at the beginning of our trip, that we couldn’t help but compare all of the other Resorts we stayed in with our Singapore experience.
As with all W brand Hotels, the design detailing is fabulously over the top, a visual feast at every turn. We stayed in a "Fabulous" room (that's the category) on the top floor with views over the swimming pool and Sentosa Cove Marina. As you’d expect from this brand, the room was very well appointed, incorporating preset mood lighting scenes to enhance all of the zany features, and the Starwood custom mattress ensured a really good night’s sleep every night.
One of the stand out features for us beyond the obvious design opulence was the quality of the food. Whilst there are a number of other cheaper restaurants on the Marina Waterfront within easy strolling distance of the Resort, we chose to dine in house for most of our meals during our short stay.
The buffet breakfast proved to be one of the best we've experienced during our travels, and the in-house Restaurant “Skirt” delivered on its reputation as one of the best steak houses in Singapore, if not anywhere. We also tried a buffet (the term doesn’t do it justice) dinner on our last night, which also surpassed our expectations.
Whilst Sentosa Cove is relatively isolated from central Singapore, if you have reason to stay on Sentosa Island, this is certainly a great option.

Do come by and stay with us again soon!

This was our first holiday with the litle one and we wanted somewhere just to get some 3some time.

We had a corner suite (not the ones with the attached pool) but it was fantastic! A swing in the room, 180 degree door openings to allow the fresh breeze and we had a nice view of the pool area from our room cabana. Seriously funky decoration in the room - but somehow as another reviewer mentioned - it works! The more-traditional spouse even took pictures of the in-room decor.

Bathroom has a full window with roller blinds which is perfect to sit in the giant tub that faces the marina view. We had the lights off sipping drinks in the tub at night while the little one slept.

Service was prompt, attentive and didn't miss much. The breakfast area has the usual items and service is ok, not the most attentive but good enough for expectations at a W. We chose to sit outside facing the pool/walk path instead of inside the air-conditioned area. Much better in that we didn't smell of food after breakfast and the clear breeze & air was refreshing after breakfast.

We didn't try the other 2 restaurants in the hotel. Most lunchs we went over to the Sentosa Cove area to get a quick lunch. There's a small wine shop and a high-end grocer for picking up some fruits, cheese, breads. The Cold Storage was properly stocked so we even got food for the little one directly from there. The restaurants along the Sentosa Pier area were adequate - some outlet were still opening or just opened when we got there, so service in some of the outlets were a little spotty (one staff didn't know where to get us a glass cold water and to ask another staff - that's how new some outlets were!)

Pool is great. Odd shaped that allowed everyone to have their own space. May have been a little busy if the pool was crowed but we were there over the Xmas break and despite about 15 small groups of 3-5 pax each, we felt we were in our own world. My 1yo couldn't enjoy the kids pool but it had some great floating "friends" - the Shark and the Crocodile!

Staff were attentive and went all out to help us when we asked. and more importantly, left us alone when we didn't want them to ask.

Perhaps the experience would have been different if we had gotten a normal room but we had a wonderful holiday. Even forgot we had a 1yo in tow.

(Note: I am giving Location a 5* in the context that there are lots of amenties within walking distance, and it's far away from everything which is what a getaway should be about. but it's in a middle of nowhere if you are looking for lot of activities. The shuttle bus takes you to the main attractions in Sentosa and to the "mainland" but we gave that a miss and stayed the whole 5 days at the Cove area).

Room Tip: If you can afford it, get the corner suites. Comes with own balcony and perfect for chilling - somet...

Hello WatchingTVinthehotel,

Thank you for your nice feedback, I am glad to read you had such a lovely stay here with your partner and your little one!

We brought the New York attitude mixed in with a bit of Singapore city flare. You may also hear cool music fills the space whether you in the lobby or in the elevator. And I am glad you like your room, the furniture, art work and glowing purple nights are our selling points!
You surely enjoyed watching TV in bed and let the colour changing lights under the bed and in the headboard set the mood!

Our talents are all super charged! No matter what you need or what you want, just ask!

Please come and get ready to be WOWed by us again!

Best regards,

i stayed at the hotel after it recently opened so the rooms and facilities were all very new and nice. i stayed in a suite with a private plunge pool and it was very spacious with a nice view out onto the pool and the marina. however, because it is located in sentosa, it didnt have much atmosphere and the hotel was quite empty. if you want to go into town, it is quite far away. but there are a lot of facilities at the hotel to keep you occupied. i also had a massage treatment which was nice and relaxing - the spa is worth checking out if you get the chance. the breakfasts are very good with a wide range of options and the service is also very attentive.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the marina. the suites with private plunge pools are great.

Being a businessman who travels 200 days a year, one can become a staunch critic of hotels. The W in Sentosa cove was, in all aspects, perfection. The best breakfast I have ever had in my life, the rooms are glorious, the pool is lavish, and the staff is the friendliest I have ever experienced. What ever you want, whenever you want. Flexibility 24 hours a day.

You may see one or two bad reviews of this hotel. Being very new, it is normal that some guests experienced a few glitches in 2012, but my stay in March 2013 was perfect.

The general manager (yes! the hotel's general manager) is most of the times available for questions and concerns.

We experienced a glitch with our reservation (I think it was expedia's fault) and at first it did not show that we had breakfast included. This was resolved immediately by the cordial people at the front desk.

The hotel staff asks you for a name they can address you by, and they remember your name as your stay goes on. Friendly and willing.

I never had a better experience in a hotel. No hotel is perfect for everyone. If you want serenity but also a safe and comfortable environment, this hotel is for you. I had stayed in many paradisaical islands with gorgeous beaches, but you are at risk of weather issues, bugs, etc.
Staying at the W in Sentosa is worry-free luxury in one of the safest and most luxurious island in the world.

And yes, you can walk to the golf course, or borrow a bike from the front desk, or even get a ride in one of the two courtesy PORSCHE CAYENNES.

The beaches are fabulous. The island is pristine. The island activities are never ending, and the W hotel at the cove provides the best ending to a fabulous fun-filled day.


The relationship quality-price is outstanding.

The ambiance is the best in the Island.

We will be back, as often as we can. We are already planning our 10 year wedding anniversary at the hotel.

Was given a smoking room first of all that smelt horrible and then told it would be two hours until a normal one was ready. Wasn't contacted as promised to say room was finally ready. Property is very nice. Breakfast was excellent although seriously busy. The hotel decor is very different and it really works. Once they have sorted out the service it will be the full deal.

It was my first time visiting W Singapore to celebrate my daughter's birthday. I paid in advance and reserved an extra bed for my child. After double confirmed when checking in, seems everything were smoothly.

Room is excellent ! Nice decaration with wonderful design with character. However...

There was no extra bed eventually. I called and they replied that "Sorry, we have no more bed". I was shocked and questioned if my child need to sleep on the floor ???? I insisted that I must have my bed for these days and within today ! Finally, their staff said possilbly to send me a bad AFTER 7pm. OK, what else can I do ?

As they answered, we got our bed finally.

The housekeeper were inexperienced and impatient. He was so discourteous when we asked for changing clean blanket. Were they all trainee ?

We booked Two rooms for the 3 night for Ester weekend. On arrival at 03.00 pm the check in time we were made to wait one an hour to get our rooms ready to move in. We're given some freebie vouchers for the Woo bar (more later on the Woo) and a spa discount ( more on the spa too later). Great looking contemporary marina facing rooms. However the shower in one room was fixed the wrong way hot instead of cold. The daily room cleaning service was inefficient and the room was done only one ay out of the 3 nights we stayed. Great pool, the Woo bar had an amazing eclectic selection of spice infused Vodka, whiskey n many more for the adventurous spirited taster. Great service there too, DJ all nights playing decent music. The Away spa was very very well designed and the whole experience was great but for the fact that they were not issuing disposable Jocks which is very surprising at a high end resort property. Go with your trunks or jocks to avoid embarrassment. The reception n masseuse are well trained and had a wonderful Balinese spa experience, worth tipping the staff well.
Just outside is the Marina Bay where there are a plethora of decent eateries. Great board walk to walk run long board or cycle. The resort has limited cycles always in demand. The breakfast at buffet wad elaborate and tasty. Everyone will find something they like. The fruit n juices were a delight. On the whole we had one of our best family vacation at the W
