Birthday Bonanza at W Singapore!

Singapore staycations, the new normal in 2020!

It feels like forever since I’ve travelled abroad, and it looks, more than likely, that there might be no travel plans for the remainder of 2020 for almost all of us. But, there is a glimmer of hope in the form of staycations; and we took complete advantage of that when we were stuck in Singapore this September!

Happy Birthday celebrations!

Staycations definitely have to be one of Singaporeans’ favourite things to do besides eating & shopping and I was actually pleasantly surprised with my birthday staycation at W Singapore 🙂 The 240-room W Singapore is a trendy luxury property in Singapore’s exclusive Sentosa Cove. Singapore’s CBD can be reached in 15 minutes by car and there’s dining and shopping just two minutes away on foot at Quayside Isle. The hotel is stylish and modern with plenty of W’s trademark flash and funk with rooms complete with all artsy details, premium electronics, and plenty of space. The two on-site restaurants and bars are pluses, as is the huge pool that’s open 24/7!



The W is situated on the resort island of Sentosa next to an upscale marina in exclusive Sentosa Cove. The hotel is on a quiet and private part of the island, surrounded by high-end residential properties and next to Quayside Isle, a two-story waterfront complex of shops, restaurants, and entertainment. It takes ~15 minutes by car or taxi to reach the CBD and a bit longer to reach Orchard Road. Changi Airport is about 30 minutes away by car. 

Room, Food and Pool Amenities

Rooms carry W’s typically catchy names, starting with entry-level Wonderful Rooms and moving up to Spectacular, Fabulous, Away, Marvelous, Fantastic, and the top end, Wow and Extreme Wow categories. We ended up staying at the Fabulous Rooms with a view of the Marina and docked yachts, complete with LED TVs, DVD players, eye-catching wall art, mood lighting, Bose sound-systems, and iPod docking stations.


Color schemes range from neutral grays to vivid purple to bold red and black, with sleek wood veneer pieces next to seating with amorphous, futuristic lines. The funky and fun mood lighting definitely adds to the overall cool quotient of the rooms and despite being extremely picky about the hotels where I stay, I can say that I genuinely enjoyed my room at the W!


Like every other aspect of this shimmery, modern hotel, the dining and drinking destinations have plenty of see-and-be-seen pizzazz. The hotel’s signature restaurant, The Kitchen Table, serves international selections, while also providing the hotel’s impressive breakfast buffet with plenty of hot and cold options and live cooking stations. Skirt restaurant serves Argentinian, Australian, and U.S. steaks and seafood with dining inside or out. The huge 24/7 pool is also among the biggest and best in Singapore, and services include sunglass polishing, wet wipes, green apples, ice, water guns, and reading materials. Lounge chairs and umbrellas line the pool deck, and a swim-up bar serves drinks and light fare.

Hello to the new normal!
Inside or outside, you gotta mask up!


Rooms start at $500SGD for the basic rooms going upto $1500SGD for the suites, so it is a  bit on the pricier side for the quality of stay and care you get.
