~ Therapeutic staycation at Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa ~

Away from the buzzing city life, we arrived at Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa - a boutique resort that sets naturally within the tropical landscape of Sentosa. It was a long-awaited vacation that we have been looking forward to - a well needed rest for everyone. Even though we are not travelling out of Singapore, the kids were equally thrilled as this is the first time they will be spending the night in Sentosa!

Stepping foot into the villa was Surprise Surprise!

The Two-Bedroom Pool Villa comes with a private plunge pool which separates the 2 bedrooms. 

Mosquito netting over the beds for both rooms. The resort being surrounded by tropical landscape naturally seems to attract mosquitoes and other insects. We were provided with complimentary mosquito coils which definitely comes in handy as Hubby and I suffered a couple of bites in the night. However, the housekeeping staff forgot to hand us the matches in the day. -___-

Outdoor (open) shower concept - You can dip into the tub for a luxurious bath or experience the sprinkle underneath the rain-shower. Definitely an experience within the privacy of the villa. Unfortunately, we were too shy to give it a try. 

Private plunge pool - favourite spot for the children. The best part of having your own private pool is the freedom and convenience of jumping into the waters at any time of the day - even if you are not in a proper swimming attire.

Denver and Gladys had fun plunging into the pool and dipping their little feet into the waters. If you do not wish to swim, there is also a jacuzzi along the side where you can enjoy massaging in the waters all day and night.

When the night falls, the adults sat by the table, near the pool and had a good time chatting, snacking and drinking. This is how holiday should be - total relaxation of the body and mind. :)

Our stay at Amara Sanctuary was generally satisfying and refreshing. However, we feel its time the Villa gets a makeover and undergo a full-scale renovation to improve the guests' satisfaction, particularly since it comes with a pricey tag. It is disappointing to see the place showing its age and poorly maintained.

With better management, improved design and maintenance, Amara Sanctuary has the potential to grow and welcome it's guests back for a more pleasant experience.

Hi Boh Tong,

It's a pretty nice place but quite pricey and a bit run down for the price.

It was a nice experience as it was also our first time staying in a villa with a private pool. :)
