It's hard to believe the W Sentosa isn't at the very top of the Tripadvisor list because it's such a fabulous hotel, I think this says more about the area it's in than the hotel itself though as it really is excellent. I only got to stay for a single night on a layover between Australia and the UK, but I wish I could have stayed longer.
The rooms are typical W, so incredibly stylish with lots of great mood lighting and clever touches to keep you amused. They are a little bigger than at some other W hotels, like Barcelona and Hong Kong for example, although this is a newer property. Breakfast was great, although not amazing but the staff were brilliant. The WooBar off the lobby was okay, again, amazing staff but the seats were a little uncomfortable which I suppose is the price you pay for style. Downstairs both the gym and spa are fantastic, the gym being a good size, well stocked and with lots of natural light, a great place to work out.
As has been mentioned before, the pool is the star, it's huge, the temperature is just perfect, it has a great bar and the staff are, once again, fantastic. I checked out in the morning and went into Singapore to explore but was able to use the pool on my return that afternoon before catching a taxi to the airport and, as a departing guest, I was offered the use of the spa showers before leaving, a really nice touch that meant I didn't have to use the smaller, and more public, poolside changing room before heading off to catch my flight to London.
It's hard to not to keep praising the staff here because they are all just superb, I felt totally looked after and nothing was too much bother. On top of this, they offered suggestions and support that I hadn't even considered, such as offering to pre-order my taxis into town and to the airport whilst bringing my bags to my room and suggesting places to eat in Little India whilst I was visiting (Komala Vilas and, yes, it was fantastic).
Stuff like this makes a huge difference because it makes your visit hassle-free and it was this kind of attention to detail that really delighted me. After all, the funky decor and hip soundtrack are a given, this is a W, but the staff really make this particular W exceptional. Thank you all.
