Why travel to far flung destinations— if you only have a few days to spare—when there are plenty of urban escapes right at your doorstep? Relax and rejuvenate at these luxe local digs. We promise you won’t feel like checking out.
Nothing says vacation like the sun, the sea and mojitos. The 22 Beach Villas which were unveiled in the 49-hectare mega-resort of Resorts World Sentosa in February, provides an ideal summer backdrop with views of the sea and coastal areas. Choose from one, two, three or four bedroom villa accommodations enveloped within a verdant rainforest. All villas are outfitted with elegant and contemporary interiors and come complete with a pantry, private spa treatment room, kitchenette and wine cellars. A pool pavilion also leads to the outdoor free form pool, so if you fancy a dip, just throw open the balcony doors and jump in. There is more reason to check in now as the recent opening of ESPA introduces Japanese-influenced onsen pools and the first Turkish Hammam in Singapore for “ahh” inducing spa treatments. Rates from $2,400. 8 Sentosa Gateway, Sentosa Island. Tel: 6577 8899
