First Look at the Family-friendly Village Hotel at Sentosa (Opening in Feb 2019)

Media Invite

A brand new family-friendly hotel is set to (soft) open its doors in February 2019 and judging from the media preview I had, I must say kids and parents alike will love the Village Hotel at Sentosa!

Located just behind KidZania Singapore and a stone's throw away from Palawan Beach, Village Hotel at Sentosa is part of the three new hotels under Far East Hospitality that are slated to open by the third quarter of 2019. The other two hotels are The Outpost Hotel (also soft opening in February 2019) and The Barracks Hotel (opening in Q3 2019).

An expansion of the Village brand, Village Hotel at Sentosa is set to be its flagship property offering 606 rooms deliberately priced at the mid-tier range.

From design, ambience to the choice of furnishings, Village Hotel at Sentosa is decorated in sun-washed hues of nature by the sea and my first impression of the hotel was it's extremely gorgeous!

See the darker building in the photo above? That's the second hotel - The Outpost Hotel which only adults can stay in. So if you are ever in need for a quick getaway from the kids, you know which hotel to go to. Heh.

But back to the family-oriented Village Hotel at Sentosa. There are three room types at the hotel: Premier Room (offering sweeping sea views), Deluxe Room and Family Room.

The Deluxe Rooms have a variety of views from Pool Deck, city view of KidZania or the Merlion, to sea views of the Southernmost point of Continent Asia. Deluxe Twin rooms also come with a bathtub.

But if you are having a staycation with the kids, go for the Family Rooms which are essentially two connecting rooms. But the two rooms come with two connecting doors, two vanity areas, and two bathrooms. All rooms has either view of the Pool Deck or city view of Kidzania or Merlion.

Children's amenities like a baby bathtub and cot are available upon request.

I simply love the styling of the room... definitely a very resort feel. Although my only bugbear is the rooms may be a little small especially if you have older kids.

But no matter, because parents can always bring their kids down to the pools at Village Hotel at Sentosa to wreck havoc. Personally, I think that is the main selling point of the hotel... because there are FOUR different pools to choose from!

There is the free-form Adventure Pool.

For younger kids, there is the Children's Play Pool with 2 mini water slides.

But I think my monkies will love the third one - a Lazy River! Yes, right in the middle of the hotel!

The Amazonian Riverine lazy river mimics the Amazonian Rainforest with large luxuriant foliage.

But the most beautiful (read: instagrammable) pool of them all is the Pamukkale Pool, which is inspired by the cascading pools in Turkey.

An infinity pool overlooking the seaside and comes complete with a pool bar, this pool is THE prime spot to chase the sunset while enjoying a cool dip at the same time. Plus, you can see the daily evening fireworks by Wings of Time from the pool too!

For couples looking for a kids-free island getaway, head to The Outpost Hotel. Inspired by Sentosa's Heritage as a colonial military base, the 193 guestrooms are a stylish interpretation of colonial black and white design, with crisp lines and a sharply contrasting palette.

The Outpost Hotel's unique selling point has to be its exclusive rooftop pool which is out of bounds to kids.

And the views from up there are spectacular!

The Deluxe Rooms at the Village Hotel at Sentosa start from $280++ per night while the Family Room starts from $370++ per night.

However, there will be a soft launch discount of minimally 20% for stays between 19 February and 30 June 2019. Booking starts from 7 November 2018 until 30 June 2019. Perfect timing to plan that March or June school holidays staycation!
