Where to stay
A beachfront resort perched on the western tip of Sentosa, the hotel boasts 454 guest rooms with jaw-dropping views across the South China Sea. And there's plenty to look at. Every time I'd take a glance, a new container ship would lumber past. It's a busy waterway.

What to do
Sentosa is not just for those who want to kick back and unwind by the pool – there are also activities for those who crave thrills. You can go zip-lining at MegaZip Adventure Park or bungee jumping at Skypark. If you like theme parks, check out Universal Studios.
Want to see another side of Sentosa and learn some history? SentoSights offers guided tours of the Serapong Trail, which takes you up to Mount Serapong and the now-abandoned Fort Serapong. Built by the British in the 1800s, the fort was bombed during World War II. Fort Siloso, located above Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa, was built by the British to guard the entrance to Keppel Harbour. It's now the only surviving coastal gun battery.
If, like me, you're not the kind of person who would ordinarily get a massage, then it's time to change. The overall experience here is tension-relieving blissful relaxation. You deserve to be pampered!
