If you’re looking to kick back in nature amidst our concrete jungle, then the Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa is one for the bucket list. Located on Sentosa as its name suggests, the property nestled within lush rainforest offers reprieve from the bustling city with its tranquil surroundings, despite being close by to the island’s attractions such as Universal Studios.
Spanning 140 rooms in total — inclusive of suites, villas and a mansion — with four pools on-site, animal lovers will be glad to know that the expansive grounds is also home to peacocks, parrots and squirrels. Parents will delight in the Club Tiny package that’s designed to keep children entertained with a Sanctuary Safari Hunt; a fun-filled activity for kids to experience and learn about wildlife. If you’re celebrating the birthday of a young one during your stay, the resort will ensure that it’s an occasion for the photo album with a complimentary birthday cake and festive in-room decor.
But for those going solo without children tagging along, there’s still plenty to see and do. Previously the grounds of the British Army in the 19th and 20th century, the Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa beckons one to explore its storied past and buildings through the Amara Heritage Trail. Highlights include viewing the remaining air raid shelters from World War II accompanied by historical tidbits and story-telling, with the experience topped off by an interesting treat for the palate. A special menu gives insight into the food British soldiers consumed in colonial times.
To experience it for yourself, sign up below for a chance to win a 3D2N stay in the Family Suite at the Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa worth $1760, inclusive of daily breakfast for two.
