aCCOMMODATION - sentosa, marina

HUllo!

We're flying in at night and then have 8 more nights ... thinking to stay the first 1 or 2 at Sentosa - is that a good idea? can u recommend a lovely resort with great breakfast & pools?

Stayed at Raffles the Plaza [refurb'd south tower, premier room] last time & enjoyed the room standard and location, but am finding current rates pricey esp. if u want b'fast included. Can anyone recommend a couple of good internet sites for discount prices? Hoping less SGD300pn with b'fast

Any other recommendations for similar class hotel - maybe recently refurbished - with good location, close to discount shopping, nice rooms, good food options ... the Scarlett looked good but no pool.

Looking forward to your suggestions

the nicest resort in Sentosa at the moment is Sentosa Spa and Resort, really nice place (though I dont know what the normal rooms look like). I only stayed there when it was still known as the Beaufort and it was in the private villa (LOVELY ! that has its own private pool with 2 rooms on the side (walk out to pool/garden) linked in the middle by the living and dining area with floor to ceiling glass door that leads to the pool and windows.

As for Raflles Plaza, u should try asiabesthotel.com for prices.

If u want something similiar to Scarlett but with a pool, try the much talked about brand new up and comer - New Majestic. Really trendy rather than romantic.

For romance, I will try the goodwood park (not sure if their rooms are all done but they were and still may be undergoing some updating). Anyways, this hotel is large and u do feel like u r away from the city even though this hotel is right in the middle of town ! Very secluded and lush/pretty. great location and restaurants.

Enjoy !

PS forgot to add, the suite near the pool are tucked away from the main area of the hotel and the other pool. This other pool, gives u the feel of being in Bali, really beautiful and private.

Yep, Sentosa Spa & resort is good for a 1-2 nite stay on Sentosa.

On Mainland SG, for a new refurbished Hotel, Go for Marina Mandarin Hotel.......Not only is the hotel totally ravamped from Head to Toes (Exterior & Internal : rooms).....Thre is even a nice restaurant to have breakfast in call Aquamarine.

The MM is also right above the Totally revamped marina Square Malls & link to Suntec City & the Unground Link to City hall MRT station & Raffles City Shopping.

For good rates, maybe U like to check www.asiabesthotel.com

Have a great time.
