This is long overdue! I brought my brother, L. and mum to Capella Singapore for a staycation a few months ago to celebrate L.’s birthday.
We checked into a villa and was picked up from the lobby to our room by a buggy. In fact, you could call for a buggy service any time of the day to go to anywhere within the Capella vicinity. Perfect for a staycation/vacation, where you really just don’t want to do anything (cue: Bruno Mars’ song).
Service prior to check in was really awesome too. The service staff checked with me if we were going to celebrate anything special while we’re there. When told that it was my brother’s birthday, they prepared a (very yummy) cake for us, that was sent to the room shortly after we arrived. And of course, L. got some birthday greetings from the staff when we were there too.
Evening fell and we made dinner plans. We had initially wanted to go for Italian and so we visited Il Lido, located at the Sentosa Golf Club. But the venue was booked for a wedding and we had to be turned away 😦
We woke up the next morning and headed to Knolls, located in Capella too, for buffet breakfast.
I must say selections aren’t fantastic, but quality isn’t too bad. Service wasn’t anything to shout about, though. So, if you ask me, I won’t return for the $50 breakfast. I’d rather venture somewhere else in Sentosa.
Overall, the staycation was definitely a very rejuvenating and pampering experience, and I will certainly recommend it for those who are craving for a short getaway. And since Capella is located in Sentosa, it means that you’re really away from the hustle and bustle and be able to really take a break from city life. What’s more with the integrated resort, beaches and other holiday spots in Sentosa, it means that you’d not be bored by inactivity.
