Singapore is filled with luxury hotels but mostly high-rises. When we started planning for our Singapore vacation, Siloso Beach Resort was our top priority.
Siloso Beach Resort is wonderfully located on the popular man-made island of Sentosa. Surrounded by lush foliage, this eco certified resort offers absolute tranquility and serenity, and features a unique 95m long natural spring water landscaped pool complete with a natural stream waterfall, slide and heated spa.
Our room is a Deluxe Room with one king size bed and one extra bed. The room features wireless internet access, cable television, mini refrigerator, hair dryer, coffee and tea maker and telephone line.
The bathroom, although not too big, was very practical and clean.
Luckily, the room that we were given is right in front of the pool. So we just dropped off our luggage in our room and headed straight there. At 95-meter long, the expansive and enchanting garden pool is said to be Singapore's largest landscaped swimming pool.
Songs of the Sea
After spending our afternoon in the pool, we walked to the nearby beach and enjoyed its refreshing scenery. Come evening, we proceeded to the Palawan Amphitheatre to watch the Songs of the Sea, a one-of-a-kind show, with live cast, and dramatic effects that includes water jets, flame bursts, lasers and beautiful pyrotechnics displays amid captivating music.
After the show, we headed back to the resort where we had our late dinner before retiring to sleep.
After checking out of the hotel, We decided to spend our second day at Universal Studios, Singapore’s second integrated resort and Southeast Asia’s first movie theme park, and the second in Asia after Japan.
The main entrance of the park is themed to the famous Hollywood Boulevard. Its main attraction is the 1,500-seat, indoor, Broadway-style Pantages Hollywood Theater which is fully equipped to host plays, musicals and performances. The theater is accompanied by several restaurants, a variety of flagship shops and also features a replica of the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame.
We watched the waterworld show which is one of the main highlights of the Universal Studios Singapore. The show was based on a 1995 American post-apocalyptic science fiction film and features the most complex combination of stunts, jet skis, gun shots, explosions, flames, pyrotechnics, sea planes and humours.
Mel's Drive Inn
At some point, we got hungry and went inside Mel’s Drive Inn for snacks. This classic 1950s-themed diner is based on the 1973 hit U.S. film American Graffiti and serves up all-American favourites the old-fashioned way, plus golden oldies on the jukebox.
We had so much fun strolling and enjoying the park. Upon closing time, we both left the park the same way we came in by foot.
On our third and last day in Singapore, we left the resort on board Sentosa Tram. Sentosa Tram is the easiest and most convenient way to get around the island, and it's free.
We alighted in front of the Sentosa Express Station, and from there, we rode the monorail going to Vivo City where we stayed for a while to eat lunch.
Somewhere in the middle of Vivo City, there was a viewing platform which has a great vantage point of Resorts World Sentosa.
Marina Bay Sands
After lunch, we went to Marina Bay Sands' SkyPark, an observation deck that offers a spectacular panoramic view of Singapore's Central Business District from ten different view points.
Then, we made a short stop at Fullerton Hotel, a former post office built in 1928 and transformed into an upscale hotel overlooking the Singapore River.
And finally, we took one last shot of Esplanade and Singapore Flyer before heading back to the airport.
Relaxing was easy in the incredible setting of Siloso Beach Resort. The garden pool view, the fantastic service, the beautiful atmosphere and it's amazing location, all made for a truly wonderful experience.
