The words we’d use to describe the style of Capella Singapore, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel located on Sentosa island, are colonial, contemporary, tropical, literary and artistic. Here’s why:
1. Colonial. This Singapore hotel has two beautiful main buildings, one of which is a restored, whitewashed British colonial bungalow with swirled white-marble flooring, dark-walnut furnishings and regal colonnades.
2. Contemporary. Expansive floor-to-ceiling windows and uniquely curved architecture, meanwhile, define Capella Singapore’s contemporary second main building, which houses many of the hotel’s guest rooms, its all-day dining venue The Knolls and open-air Bob’s Bar.
3. Tropical. Situated just off Sentosa’s pretty Palawan Beach, this Five-Star hotel features sprawling grounds teeming with well-manicured tropical greenery, blooming flowers and Singapore heritage trees — no wonder wild peacocks love visiting as much as we do.
4. Literary. Catch up on your reading while refreshing with a variety of snacks and beverages in The Library, a spacious guests-only hideaway stocked with literature, newspapers and magazines. Finger foods, cookies and other treats are laid out throughout the day, and during the evening you can unwind with a book and small glass of sherry or port.
5. Artistic. Sculptures by Salvador Dalí on display in the hotel’s lobby are just of the impressive artworks you’ll find littered throughout the public areas and guest rooms. They are eye-catching proof of the luxury hotel’s artistic spirit and style.
