Our favourite rooms

All rooms have space for at least one little Smith (on a sofa bed) and a cot. The one-bedroom Sentosa Suites and neighbouring Premier rooms (pick from Garden or Sea View) can be connected. For plenty of lounge space for all the family (plus a designer kitchen), opt for one of the five Capella Three-bedroom Suites. Villas and the two dazzling manors have the most room, plus a private pool (or varying dimensions) apiece.


There are three tree-shaded, lounger-lined, outdoor swimming pools that come with South China Sea views. There’s also a kid’s wading pool; be sure to bring your own floats and pool toys with you. Sentosa Island is home to several sandy beaches – when the pool no longer satisfies, take one of the local buses or hire some bikes and head beachside.


Adults-only Auriga Spa uses all natural and organic products from the Organic Pharmacy; its four signature treatments are designed around the cycles of the moon. Boost your immune system in the herbal steam room, brave the ice fountain and the chilly experience shower and relax in your private outdoor garden after a treatment in one of the nine treatment rooms. The spa is open from 10am to 10pm, seven days a week.


Staff like to leave a surprise in the room for little Smiths: cookies and milk, a soft toy or mini bathrobe. Let them know in advance if there’s something in particular that you’d like…


Small dogs (under 6kg) are welcome.

Food and drink

Capella Singapore – Singapore – Singapore


Cassia is a chic fine-dining Chinese restaurant decorated in shades of black, beige and ivory. It serves Cantonese and fusion dishes, such as barbecued boneless duckling with sliced mango and lemon sauce. All-day diner the Knolls offers an East-meets-West menu. A wine-matched gourmet dinner can be arranged by the pool, on the beach or in your villa.

Family fare

Highchairs are available at Cassia and the Knolls (the latter also has a kids’ menu: expect dishes such as oatmeal with maple syrup and French-toast fingers for breakfast; and chicken noodle soup, hamburgers and grilled chicken breast with potato and veg throughout the rest of the day). If your baby isn’t on solids yet, you’ll need to bring your own supplies or improvise (the Colonial Manor, the Contemporary Manor and the Capella Three-bedroom Apartment all have a fully equipped kitchen).

Hotel Bar

Smart and air-conditioned inside, dotted with day-beds outside, Bob’s Bar serves the usual suspects, along with regionally inspired cocktails such as the Kaffir Lime Mule and Kumquat Sidecar. Little Smiths are very welcome, as long as they’re supervised; kids with a sweet tooth will love trying the hotel’s home-made ginger beer (there’s also a range of fruit-packed mocktails).

Last orders

Bobs Bar keeps guests well-lubricated between 12 noon and midnight (last orders are at 11.30pm). Breakfast is available from 7am until 11am; lunch is 12 noon until 3pm; dinner is 5.30pm until 11pm (last orders at 10.30pm).

Smith Insider

  • Top table

    The Knolls is best for casual all-day dining with the brood; book a babysitter for date nights at Cassia (though children are welcome, the vibe is more romantic).

  • Room service

    Available 24 hours, with a reduced menu after 11pm, room- service meals can be ordered from the Knolls or Cassia. There’s also a tot-tailored in-villa dining menu, with options such as cereal with berries, spaghetti bolognaise, mini fish 'n' chips, and cookies and milk.


    The library’s tea bar, stocked with more than 30 varieties, is a great spot to linger after meals. The teas are designed for adults, but children can enjoy a fresh juice while their parents sip a fragrant brew. Don't tell your dentist, but free biscuits and Iced Gems are available all day in the library. If you want something a little more substantial, book in for afternoon tea, served between 3pm and 5pm.

Things to do

Capella Singapore has a brilliant location for families exploring Singapore. The mainland is within easy reach, but you’ll wake up surrounded by lush gardens, with a family-friendly beach a five-minute walk away (and plenty of other stretches of sand, a little further).

Sunny days

There are several nature trails that loop around Sentosa Island (helpful staff will point you in the right direction) and a pedestrian path along the coast that makes for a great running track, so pack trainers. Staff can also organise snorkeling trips and scuba diving nearby. Borrow bikes and wheel around the garden’s grounds, spotting peacocks and sculptures. Ask staff for racquets and balls and perfect your serve on the tennis courts.

Rainy days

Bookish families can stake out Capella’s library and make the most of the books, magazines, newspapers and board games. There’s a constant array of fresh fruit, tea, coffee, soft drinks and sweet treats available at all times, so you won’t have to move a muscle while reading the latest comic/world news.

And there's more…

Bike trails, boat tours and beach clubs are all within a short distance of the hotel, and staff are more than happy to help you plan an action-packed stay (that’s what the personal assistant service is for, after all). Opt for one of Capella’s guided tours: we’d be tempted by the Underwater World & Dolphin Lagoon trip (dive with sharks if you’re feeling brave) or the recce round Singapore Botanic Gardens…

Smith tip

Pay a visit to Singapore’s Science Centre ( and Mint Museum of Toys (, both on the mainland.

Don't miss…

a trip to Hay Dairies at No. 3 Lim Chu Kang, Agrotech Park Lane 4, Singapore, to meet the resident goats and watch them being milked ( ; (65) 6792 0931).

Beyond Capella's gorgeous gardens, spa, pools and tennis courts, you'll find a host of attractions on Sentosa Island, from nearby Palawan Beach to golf courses (guests can enjoyget priority booking at Sentosa Golf Club, which has two 18-hole championship courses), day spas and family-friendly theme parks. There are plenty of bike and hike paths that thread around the island. The hotel team can organise everything from signature yachting cruises to cycling excursions, gourmet experiences and shopping, nature or cultural tours.

Capella Singapore is situated away from the hustle and bustle on the mainland, where shopping and eating is the routine. Hidden away in the tropical gardens of Sentosa Island, the hotel is close to beaches, bars, restaurants and child-friendly theme-parks such as Universal Studios, which will keep kids entertained for hours on end with its rides, shows and parades. The resort that houses Universal Studios is also home to Marine Life Park, the Maritime Experiential Museum and Trick Eye Museum, with its 3D artworks.

Walk through the tropical jungle of Singapore Zoo, where you can see one of the world’s first nocturnal exhibits ( ; +65 6269 3411; 80 Mandai Lake Rd, Singapore 729826). The kids will love the mystery and adventure of the Night Safari, where animals that are most active at night come out to play. Take a journey from the Frozen Tundra to monkey spotting on the Treetops Trail boardwalk. A suspension bridge from the sandy beach to a little island is an adventurous pathway for kids to travel to the southernmost point of Continental Asia. Alternatively, for a memorable start to the day, book into the Jungle Breakfast: you’ll enjoy a buffet breakfast outside, in the presence of friendly orang utans, who’ll also be companionably chomping away.

Spending the day at Palawan Beach will be easy as it has bars, eateries with local food and shops. Here you’ll also find the kid’s club Port of Lost Wonder, where children can play until their hearts content on a pirate ship or grow plants on Curiosity Island. Catch Sentosa Bus 3, the Sentosa Beach Tram or take the Sentosa Express to ‘Beach Station’. Beach patrol officers are always present on the beaches and swimming is encouraged between the red and yellow flags.

Coastes ( is one of the more laidback beach clubs on Sentosa that will see you settling in on one of the loungers and letting the kids frolic in the sand all day. Located on Siloso Beach, there’s a great daytime menu and cocktail list to boot. Snack on a burger or enjoy some delicious laksa while soaking up the sun. The beach club is open Monday to Thursday from 9am to 11pm, 9am to 1am on Fridays and Saturdays and from 9am to 11pm on Sundays and public holidays. With celebrity chef Emmanuel Stroobant behind the eats, a fun kid’s menu and around 200 brands of beers to sample, Brussels Sprouts (; +65 6684 4344) is definitely a no-brainer. Kids eat for free on weekends and public holidays. Sample fresh mussels or dig into a hearty lamb shank at this gastro-pub. Closed on Mondays, Brussels Sprouts is open from 5pm weekdays, 12pm on Saturday and serves Sunday breakfast from 10am. There are three locations throughout Singapore, with the closest one at Sentosa Cove, just a hop, skip and a jump from Capella.

Smith & Family  Parent Panel reviews

Every property featured in the Smith & Family collection – including Capella Singapore – has been selected and approved by parents.

Capella Singapore is great for families, but it doesn’t shout from the rooftops about its family focus. There’s no kids club or crèche, but the hotel has 30 acres for kids to romp around in. They can spot peacocks and sculptures, or borrow bikes and wheel around the island. (It would be worth packing a picnic – staff will help – and scooting to Palawan Beach, just five minutes away from the hotel.) Little Smiths are well looked after in the Knolls, and will love the Iced Gems and free biscuits left out in the library (unless they’re too preoccupied with the tennis courts and swimming pools to come inside, that is). Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Universal Studios is next door, or that Singapore’s mainland has a brilliant zoo where you can breakfast with orang utans and go on a night safari. For those romantic evenings when you just want to be a pair again, the hotel has a fleet of babysitters, a fine-dining restaurant, bar and spa. Capella Singapore: great for families, in the most grown- up of ways.
