Once you step afoot this island, you can find your own slice of paradise among the many exciting attractions - history and culture come alive, entertainment by day and night, lush green surroundings to explore, manicured gardens, dancing fountains and two challenging international 18-hole golf courses with scenic undulating views.

Sentosa Island is worth a full day's (and night's) visit (in fact, if you have the time, you should allocate at least 2 days to this island). Here, you can dine on sumptuous lobster laksa, play beach volleyball by a bar then quench your thirst with a frozen margarita, or simply chill out at a spa shrouded in lush greenery.

  • History
    Formerly a fishing village turned British military base, Sentosa (meaning peace and tranquility) was transformed into an idyllic island resort in 1972

  • Today
    The island is now a themed attraction, tropical resort, nature park and heritage centre all rolled into one! Just minutes away from the city by cable car, ferry or road, Singapore's Island Resort is a 390-hectare recreational jewel boasting a kaleidoscope of attractions and activities.  Plans are on the way for Singapore's second Integrated Resort to be build here in this island (the first one is at Marina Bay).

The ever popular Musical Fountain - Dance of Fire and Water Show offers a spectacular light and sound experience after dark. The latest laser technology is combined with motion pictures and 3-D animated images, choreographed to a ballet of dancing water fountains, multi-sensory music and lights.
