Home » Singapore » Singapore (all) » Top 10 Sentosa Hotels – Best Singapore Island Resort Stays

Sentosa is a small island in the southern part of the coast of Singapore. The island was previously known as Pulau Belakang Mati, which means ‘The Island After Death in Malay. Considered as a strategic location, four defensive forts were built on the island in the 1880s by the British forces: Fort Siloso, Serapong, Imbiah, and Connaught. Fort Siloso later became a prisoner-of-war camp when Singapore fell to the Japanese from 1942 until 1945 when Singapore was returned to British colonial rule. The islands name was changed to Sentosa resulting from a naming contest in 1970. Sentosa is derived from the Malay word Santosha, which means peace and contentment. Fast-forward to today, Sentosa is a popular destination for locals and foreigners who visit the island for both business and leisure. Dubbed as ‘Asias Favourite Playground, it has luxurious hotels, nature parks, themed attractions, casino, world-class golf courses, restaurants, and white sandy beaches. Its land is comprised of 70% of secondary rainforest with an extensive array of vegetation, trees, and wildlife, including peacocks, birds, butterflies, reptiles, and monkeys. If youre planning for a night of getaway, we have rounded up our top 10 Sentosa hotels on the island and highlighted each hotels unique features.
