Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Singapore, the Capella offers a sanctuary of peace and quiet among a beautifully manicured landscape. The imposing colonial mansion set on a sweeping knoll is reminiscent of the grand old days of colonial charm. It is backed by a modern building designed by Norman Foster to house the rooms which are spacious and stylishly furnished. The daring combination of colonial and modern architecture however, overshadows the charm of the colonial building. Our room overlooks a great vista of a beach and the Merlion viewing point and at night we can see the lights of the attractions of Sentosa. The room is all mod con and the curtains, blinds and lights are all remotely controlled from the bedside. Service is impeccable and attentive. The only criticism is the turn-down snack at night is a packet of biscuits that came in all broken and crumbly as it obviously cannot survive the rigour of transit . Maybe they should stick to chocolate goodnight gift as normally distributed in luxury hotels. It would also be useful to have a guest relation person who can speak English coherently when showing guests to their rooms. The Chinese lady who showed us to our room is beautiful and gracious but we could not understand half of what she was saying in her broken English. Breakfast is sumptuous with a large variety of choices from the full blown decadent menu to healthy ones. The only problem is the lift nearest to the Knoll, the restaurant where breakfast is served, has a foul smell. Apparently the management is trying to solve the problem.To avoid the smelly lift, take a stroll through the lovely garden and enjoy the breakfast. One of the best things about the Capella is that it allows guests to bring their dogs (provided they are of small breed) to stay in their rooms. Sentosa is a wonderful escape from the city with many of its greenery and forest still intact and at the same time offers attractions to suit everyone. Highly recommended attraction is the luge downhill self-driven ride akin to tobogganing except on a vehicle with wheels and brakes down a winding concrete path. Capella offers a tranquil escape yet minutes away from all the attractions and beaches in Sentosa and it offers a free shuttle to Vivo City shopping mall across the waters.
