Taking over the previous Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa, Le Méridien Singapore, Sentosa invites guests to immerse in carefree island life amid the lush surroundings of Singapores’ offshore playground, Sentosa. We decided to pick this newly revamped hotel as my birthday party location but unfortunately, the experience didn’t really live up to our expectation from a Starwood brand.
Set in the heart of Sentosa filled with lots of attractions and entertainment, Le Méridien Singapore, Sentosa is an upscale lifestyle hotel with an illustrious history which provides luxury comforts for the modern traveller. With the aid of award-winning architectural firm, DP Architects, Le Méridien Singapore, Sentosa provides a taste of Singapore’s historic colonial past in the Heritage Wing of the hotel, dated back to the 1940s.
There is a total of 62 Heritage Suites where some of the suites will get you a good view of the Merlion, as well as 19 unique Japanese-style Onsen Suites featuring private onsen pools. If you are feeling luxurious, you may choose the 3 One Bedroom Suites and 2 Penthouse Suites created by acclaimed Japanese design firm, Super Potato. We managed to try the Onsen Suite on the second night of our stay, but unfortunately we didn’t managed to get our deluxe room upgraded to the Heritage Suites on the first night, despite being one of the SPG Platinum Member.
Being the first of its kind in Singapore, the Japanese Onsen Suites offer and expansive 63 sqm of stylish living space where you can enjoy the cool evenings under the stars on the private open air deck with the Japanese Onsen hot tub. The suite comes with a choice of King or Twin beds, integrated shower and steam room and equipped with TV and DVD player.
The hotel showcases a range of multi-purpose meeting spaces where you can hold weddings, solemnization ceremony or workshop and conferences. There is also a fully equipped fitness centre and outdoor infinity pool.
Breakfast was served at The Latest Recipe where we had quite a bad experience. Queue was long as the hotel was running full capacity and the dining area is not able to handle the number of guests awaiting to have their breakfast. It took us about 30 mins before we managed to get a table. However, ants are seen crawling around from the ground to the table which totally gave me a very unpleasant start of the day.
Although we felt that they might not be ready to accommodate to the overwhelming demand and there is still a lot of room for improvement, Le Méridien Singapore, Sentosa is a good choice to stay in if you intend to spend a weekend to explore Sentosa with all the fun-filled activities and attractions.
