W Singapore

When I asked South African concert pianist extraordinaire, Malika Omar, about one of her favourite hotels in the world, she came back to me with the W Singapore Sentosa Cove and I can see why it resonates with her. Just like Malika, the W Singapore is quirky, full of class, and it stands out in the crowd.


Hello beautiful Malika!

The W Singapore Sentosa Cove is an exclusive address, located on its very own island, a short drive away from shopping and nightlife in the heart of southern Singapore. Like all W hotels, this one takes 5 star luxury up a notch with an out-of-this-world take on design and a serious attention to detail.

Sweet Suite

With names like WOW Suite and Fabulous Suite, they’re setting you up to be impressed… and there’s no room for disappointment. From music that plays the moment you step foot into the room to funky lighting, there’s already something to write home about before you’ve done anything.

There’s even mood lighting – feeling flirty, anyone?

The fun continues in the bathrooms, with marble finishing, standalone bathtubs, and airy views.

Best part? You’re handed flowers every time you walk in:

For me? Aw… you shouldn’t have 😀

Fun in the Sun

Sentosa Cove offers an exclusive escape from the bustling city. W Singapore is all shimmering pools and sunlight streaming through greenery. So relaxing.


No stay at the W Singapore is complete without a dip in the WET pool and a sojourn at the swim-up pool bar, which has a great range of fresh juices.


Calling all carnivores! Revel in a variety of grills at the super stylish SKIRT restaurant – the food is yummy enough to tear your attention away from the beautiful interior decoration:

Malika also loved the breakfast served at Kitchen Table in the mornings.


The spas at W hotels worldwide are always futuristic and quite different from the mellow, expected atmosphere we associate with spas. Doesn’t this look like the interior of a UFO:

Your therapist, Cyborg, will be in shortly… 😀

Malika Says

The W Singapore – Sentosa Cove Hotel was probably one of my most favourite hotel destinations in the world. The property is trendy and spacious with quirky touches as per the W Hotels brand. Considering the hotel is on Sentosa Island (Singapore’s renowned resort island), it’s close to all the fun attractions. Check out the pool for a session of tanning and relaxation amongst greenery and The Kitchen Table for a delicious breakfast before taking on Singapore’s hottest tourist spots!
