The first W Hotel was conceived in New York City with a real New York rawness of sleek interiors and funky furniture. Over 50 hotels later and W Hotel has opened its third hotel in Southeast Asia on the shores of Singapore’s Sentosa Cove. W Singapore-Sentosa Cove brings the New York attitude mixed in with a bit of Singapore city flare. Cool music fills the space whether you are in the lobby, in the elevator or underwater in the pool and around every corner is a piece of extraordinary furniture, artwork and glowing purple lights. With the creativity that comes from Rockwell Group’s designs, get ready to be WOWed by this designer hotel.
Set along the water in Singapore’s Sentosa Cove, guests can arrive at the hotel in under 20 minutes from the CBD or if they prefer, pull up in a yacht and park at the hotel’s marina. With a new mini mall with shops and restaurants nearby, guests can enjoy access to different dining options or hop on a shuttle to explore the rest of Sentosa Island and Singapore.
Cocktails and Cuisine
Guests wanting to start their stay with a cocktail in hand can head straight to WOOBAR where they can get killer martinis with a view of the pool below or get wet and enjoy a drink at WET, the pool bar. SKIRT, the hotel’s signature restaurant offers grilled fine cuts of meat and a pre and post dinner bar. For all day dining, the kitchen table serves up Japanese, Chinese, Indian and International dishes buffet style or a la carte.
Work up a a sweat in the gym with a variety of state-of-the-art equipment and views of the South China Sea, or borrow a bicycle for fresh air and discover the surrounding area. For “Whatever/Whenever”, the super charged concierge is ready to attend to your every need. Then when the day is over, rejuvenate at W Hotel’s signature AWAY Spa and get ready to do it all over again the next day.
All rooms in the W Singapore-Sentosa Cove are sure to impress with a highlight being the “Fabulous Rooms” (pictured above). Take in the panoramic views of the pool and South China Sea from the room’s balcony or the bathtub which opens into the room. For a little in room entertainment, watch TV in bed on the 40″ LED TV or let the colour changing lights under the bed and in the headboard set the mood.
Then there are the suites. A “Marvelous Suite” played home to DJ David Guetta while he was in Singapore and with suites like these, there will be more celebrities to come. The “Wow Suite” pictured starts at S$5430.00 a night and is a 75 square meter playground. The separate living and dining areas seat a comfortable 6 people each, while the bright red bar table has room for cocktails for 3. No suite fit for a rock star is complete without a bar and this one is stocked with full size Belvedere vodka, Hennessey XO and Kah Tequila.
Ready to say wow? The “Wow Suite” even has a plunge pool on the balcony with views of the pool and ocean beyond. When it’s finally time to get some beauty sleep, don’t worry, there are blackout curtains to keep the sun out.
