The Shangri La Rasa Sentosa Resort is a resort that is obviously geared towards fun and relaxation. Located on Sentosa Island on Siloso Beach itself, the hotel offers great views of the sun, sand and sea. The hotel provides its own shuttle service that comes every 20 minutes and takes guests to the Vivocity shopping mall on the Singapore mainland, just opposite Sentosa Island. The ride takes about 10 minutes. Vivocity is the largest shopping mall in Singapore, though it is not known for being cheap.
As you can see, visiting Singapore’s attractions on the mainland can be quite a hassle, but with all the attractions on Sentosa Island, there might not be a need to. Guests can enjoy sea sports and beach volleyball facilities (note: they are not hotel facilities), or simply relax at Shangri La Rasa Sentosa Resort’s own swimming pool. For added value, the hotel offers complimentary broadband access to guests and children aged 12 and below stay, play and dine for free.
The room facilities are not necessarily the best compared with those on the Singapore mainland, but each comes with a private balcony for a relaxing view, and there is no reason to stay cooped up in the hotel room when there is so much to do. One downside is the there are few shopping and dining options on Sentosa Island. The nearest place that is cheap would probably be the food centre at the bus interchange opposite Vivocity shopping mall.
In conclusion, Shangri La Rasa Sentosa Resort offers a great base from which to enjoy Sentosa Island.
