Shangri-La or W Singapore Sentosa Cove?

Me and husband will go to Singapore for 6 days (business and some leisure) and wanted to have some relax for few days in Sentosa. As our budget doesn't reach Capella, which has wonderful reviews, i have been thinking Shangri-La or W Sentosa Cove. We only have 2 nights and the sea water is not swimmable, the nice pool area is very important- to relax and tan and swim. Also nice neigbourhood for walking would be nice. We come from very cold climate, so sun, greenery and hot weather is what we really enjoy. As we leave our 3 children at home, it would be great to have some quiet area to enjoy each other's company. So which of the hotels is best for us? Or maybe some other recommendations? Thank you so much!

Mirjam32, hi

Sentosa is just 400 meters from the city, you need 10-15 min to get from one island to another on foot. Stay in the city center is an advantage in terms of:

@@ wider choice of accommodation options, and cheaper too

@@ better proximity to sights

@@ easier connection to/ from airport

@@ nightlife

@@ shopping

@@ food/ bar/ restaurant options

@@ better transport connectivity

Agree with Mankster. If it's just the two of you, the W is better.

Give some thought to what Schonefeld said as well about considering to stay in the city. If you're looking to spend some time in the sun, by the pool, have a look at Marina Bay Sands to see if it's fits your budget. Fantastic roof top pool, plenty of dining options all around, easy transport to pretty much anyway.
