W Singapore-Sentosa Cove opens

W Hotels Worldwide announced the opening of the first W Hotel in Singapore with the debut of W Singapore–Sentosa Cove and The Residences at W Singapore–Sentosa Cove.

Owned and developed by an affiliate of City Developments Limited, W Singapore is located on Sentosa, an island minutes away from downtown Singapore. Designed by London-based architects WATG and design firm Rockwell Group, W Singapore is said to have been inspired by the energy of the city set against Sentosa’s natural surroundings to create a new scene in this international capital.

Located minutes away from Singapore’s Central Business District, shopping and iconic sights, Sentosa Island offers rainforests, sandy beaches, spas, residences, and a deep-water yachting marina. W Singapore and The Residences at W Singapore – Sentosa Cove are situated in the heart of Sentosa and adjacent to Quayside Isle, a specialty retail complex with waterfront restaurants and shops.

Adjacent to the 228 W-branded residences, the hotel features 240 guestrooms and suites, two signature restaurants, a destination bar, the W Lounge experience, WET pool deck and bar, Away Spa and meeting and event space.

The opening of W Singapore–Sentosa Cove marks the W brand’s 43rd hotel worldwide, and the seventh W Hotel in Asia Pacific.

The design of W Singapore is said to have been inspired by modern interpretations of Sentosa’s tropical landscape. For instance, upon arrival, guests are welcomed by a waterfall with projections of graphic patterns on the water, while the outdoor terrace features grass lights, rock-shaped daybeds and an over-scaled rock garden. Patterns evoking Singapore’s national flower, the Vanda Miss Joaquim Orchid, can be found throughout W Singapore, serving as inspiration for guestrooms. In the hotel’s W Lounge, a DJ console carved out of natural stone creates a centerpiece, overlooking the lawn, which illuminates in the evening.

 

The property has Skirt, the W brand’s first contemporary grill restaurant; Kitchen Table all-day dining restaurant; Woobar, W Singapore’s destination nightclub; and Wet Bar, a poolside spot.

W Singapore features an Away Spa, the W brand’s signature spa concept. Guests of the spa are greeted by rainforest-inspired decor and natural sculptural pieces said to personify the gardens of Singapore. Away at W Singapore exclusively features iLA products and highly-customized beds. W Singapore offers nine Away guest rooms and suites, located on the spa level of the hotel and each featuring a private plunge pool. The hotel also features Gym fitness center and Wet pool deck, featuring a 13,993 square-foot outdoor pool with 24 underwater speakers.

All guestrooms and suites at W Singapore feature a signature W Bed, Munchie Box stocked with exclusive amenities, 40 inch LED HD TV, state-of-the-art surround sound system, high-speed Wi-Fi and MP3 player plug-and-play device. All bathrooms are stocked with Bliss amenities.

W Singapore features more than 4,921 square feet of meeting and event space, including a 7,879 square foot Great Room, seven meeting rooms and an outdoor space outfitted with adaptable conference furniture and state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment. W Singapore is the first hotel in the city to feature private berthing stations along the shore with direct access to the Great Room for an enhanced grand entrance.

Meanwhile, the Residences at W Singapore-Sentosa Cove is a W-branded high lux condominium by the marina with berthing facilities for yacht owners right at its backyard. Supported by the neighboring W Hotel’s Whatever / Whenever concierge services, The Residences at W Singapore-Sentosa Cove is complimented with Quayside Isle’s dining and retail experiences.
