When it’s time to snooze, rest and re-charge at over a dozen hotels and resorts on the island. Indulge yourself: book a spa treatment during your stay for the ultimate pampering session.

The State of Fun is within easy reach for both locals and visitors here. The island is just 15 minutes away from the city centre so hop on a short monorail ride from VivoCity or the scenic cable car rides from Harbourfront for spectacular views of Sentosa and the city. There’s just so much to do and see on this island!

In 2012, as part of Sentosa’s 40th-anniversary celebrations, kids were given the chance to whizz down Asia’s first-ever ice slides by the beach. Measuring 5m and 8m long, the slides were a welcome cool-off for the sunny island’s younger guests. But the fun lasted for only a day, as by Sept 2, barely a day after the slide was constructed, it had all but melted.

Before it became associated with sandy beaches or a great day out in the sun, Sentosa went by the name of Pulau Belakang Mati, which translated from Malay means “The Island After Death”. The name was perhaps fitting, as the island used to house prisoners of war during the Japanese occupation. In 1972, with the Singapore Government’s decision to develop it as a tourist attraction, the island was renamed Sentosa, which in Malay means “peace and tranquility”. Talk about a turn around.
