Shangri-La'S Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa, Singapore
Travel Blogs from Sentosa Island
Well our last day of the trip turned on the sun for us, a shame it didn't come 2 days ago when we arrived here. The plan was 3 days of sunshine to relax in before home but one day gave me a little rosy glow.
We left the hotel at 5.15pm and checked in the fastest we ever have at any airport. Straight through the baggage drop, no wait. Was …
We left the resort on Sentosa island at 10.30 approximately on the shuttle bus that goes to Harbourfront. From Harbourfront we went on our first of many trips on the Singapore underground trains. The system is quite amazing, all colour coded, when you reach your platform you are behind closed glass doors that shut off the platform so there is no …

... as we walked. On our final night we went to the downtown area to celebrate earth hour. The city put on a huge show to celebrate, which included an appearance from the cast of the new Spider-Man movie. We thought it was pretty cool to see celebrities like Jamie Foxx and Emma Stone. It was funny to see the crowd get fired up when the dressed up Spider-Man came on stage. They were even more excited for him than for the real celebrities. Earth hour was not ...
... Gardens were full of local families enjoying them. I saw a sign advising us what to do should we encounter the wild monkeys that could be living there (Don’t confront .Walk away.). The entrance to the Orchids had a sign informing us they closed at 6:00 PM, the time at that moment. So much for expertise. We wandered desultorily a little, but since it was getting dark, decided to catch a cab to the Conrad. Well, the carefully chosen back ...

Old hotel but the service was alright and it was nearby the Zouk Out event location.

Historical Traveler Reviews Shangri-La'S Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa, Singapore Sentosa Island
This hotel was very disappointing. Upon check in, there was no member of staff to show us to our room, I had to ask where the lifts were located, the receptionist pointed in the general direction. On our way to the room, there was work being carried out, the ceiling had been taken down and we had to walk around step ladders and debris. The corridors resembled what you would expect to find in a cheap motel, not a Shangri-La property. When we eventually found the room (deluxe sea view on the 8th floor) we were amazed at the state of it. The musty, damp smell, the old dirty carpet, furniture that was well past its best, holes in the sheets- nothing like the pictures used in advertisements.
Rasa Sentasa Resort is unbelievable. Having booked our first holiday to Singapore we stumbled onto the resort. At this point we returned to our packaged accommodation and booked 2 nights at the resort and returned.
The service was impeccable. The resort and man made beach was something to be seen.
We are already planning our return
Having travelled to Thailand and different parts of Indonesia, this has suddenly got me hooked.
Not cheap like Bali. But then not like Bali in any way or form.
La rosa beach resort sentosa island
the la rosa hotel is superb in every way ie location, facilities, rooms, staff the whole package, the resort itself is ideal not just as a stop over but also as an actual vacation there is so much to see and do the pool area is the best i have ever had the pleasure of using and when the mill pond sea is just a few feet away it is wonderful .
We booked with travel bag and could not fault them, do try it one day
We were unlucky enough to stay at this so called 5 Star hotel recently for a 3 night stay for which we was so looking forward too and all i can say about it is.... stay at the Shangri La in the city and NOT at the Shangri-la Rasa, Sentosa Resort !!
Not a 5 star hotel. Please be careful when you read the glowing reports. We stayed in Room 945, a sea view deluxe with two beds. The carpet, curtains, and furnishings were really stained. Our sheets were not changed for the 3 days we stayed and I had to request the floor to be hoovered. Housekeeping apologised and said it should be hoovered every day. Still, nobody arrived. I had to march down the corridor the next day and grab a cleaner myself. The rooms badly need refurbishing. Room you see on the website with white furniture etc. is NOT what you get. Only a handful of rooms have been decorated up to date like that. Also, we were assured cheap rate from Shangri-La direct but found cheaper on other websites afterward. My bedsheets had holes in them. You have to put up with a lot of noise from rowdy people on neighbouring balconies and a hotel restaurant in the garden used for big Karaoke and Hypnotist shows, so LOUD. The clientele are 98% asian and if noisy children in the pool with large blowup toys bother you, dont come to this hotel, it is totally geared for families with children. Kids reign. I went there for my 8 year old to unwind after a gruelling cold European trip. He thought it was paradise. last warning - the beach is public and people can park their cars on it, so not pristine, cosy and private as in hotel fotos. Close to shore are 100s of tankers waiting to go into port. I did not like the look of the creamy foam on top of the sea water, for bathing. Staff are brilliant in general. Hotel needs complete re-haul. Chic or stylish it is not. More like a glorified holiday camp. Pay top dollar and you will be disappointed, get a good deal and you might like it.
Best place ever june 2004
great prices, booked direct on the internet, fab facilities, the pool was great and the beach so close. The hotel was clean and food great, service was fantastic and staff friendly.
We liked it so much we booked in extra nights.
The children loved it and the monkeys were so funny out on the balconies.
A huge plus point is the island itself, so much to see and do, free transport via buses or trams, don't miss the pink dolphin show or the lazer night show.
We tend to go to Singapore quite a bit and this time i wanted a more relaxed style holiday instead of the busy city life. We booked 5 days in the hotel and loved every minute of it. The staff were extremely friendly and always smiling, I felt safe enough to walk back to my room on my own in the dark. Although with the hotel all being open air, when i was walking back to my room i came across 2 monkeys helping themselves to someone's left over breakfast, i was more amused then worried and as soon as they saw me they picked up some food and went back into the forest! The breakfast was perfect for me as its so hot in Singapore all i wanted was some juice and some of the local fruit, but there is the usual bacon and eggs if that is what you would prefer. The dinner however was not all that nice, i tended to hop across the waterfront and have some local food in the food centre there, cheap and very traditional.
I really enjoyed this hotel and its location.
We recently enjoyed a holiday to Australia and decided to stop at Singapore for two nights on route. What a wonderfull place. The hotel is located on Sentosa which is reached by a causeway from Singapore, we were so please that we chose this hotel as it was away from the bustle of down town Singapore. The hotel staff could'nt have done more for us very freindly. The hotel is very clean, our room had wonderfull sea and pool views, although the front of the hotel does look over a wooded area. The hotel provided a courtesy bus to down town Singapore. Singapore in it self is fantastic. Only regret is that we only had two nights at this location and hopefully will return for a longer stay
