Tel: 65 6825 3888's insider take:

This 121-room retreat sits just over the bridge from Singapore on the island of Sentosa, a government-designated "fun zone" that caters to professionals escaping the city's frenetic pace. The draws—clean beaches, laid-back bars, and lively restaurants, all linked to the hotel by shuttle bus—also make the Amara a worthwhile add-on for visitors to the city. The 20 suites were originally World War II British military barracks, and architect Masaki Miyake has retained quirky historic details such as boot-sole cleaners outside each door. However, the prevailing vibe is purely modern, with clean-lined dark wood furniture, muted textiles, and sunken marble tubs. Though interiors feel urban, the view outside is purely tropical: lush jungle, unobstructed sea views, and three pools (one for adults only). Though it's tempting to remain on-site for pampering at the small spa, it's worth venturing off-property for more exotic treatments like fish reflexology at nearby Underwater World.
