I-ASIA Recommendation (*****)
Capella Singapore offers an inspiring natural setting while providing easy access to Singapore’s financial and shopping districts. Residing on 30 acres of lush rainforest, the resort’s peaceful setting on a knoll is a rare masterpiece, boldly marrying Singapore’s rich colonial heritage with a symphony of contemporary architectural curves and designs.
Located within 30-acres of lush rainforest on Sentosa island, Capella Singapore has cemented itself as one of the most luxurious hotels in the region over the last decade. Inspired by Tanah Merah’s Malay translation red earth, architects Foster + Partners, led by Sir Lord Norman Foster, designed the resort to sit in harmony with surrounding nature, combining old-world colonial charm with contemporary chic. As an ardent supporter of the arts, Capella Singapore has installed more than 900 art pieces on its premises and integrated them as part of the hotel design. The remarkable incorporation of the classy modern hotel wing, alongside the colonial heritage buildings, is a masterpiece on its own.
