Fancy a family getaway that features luxury, and themeparks, all on one island? Head directly to Sentosa, the island resort off Singapore’s southern coast.
Base yourselves at the frangipani-framed Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort and Spa where you can choose to lounge by the giant pool, book in for a spa treatment at their renowned So Spa, try a round of golf and then feast on their Sunday brunch at Kwee Zeen featuring endless seafood and Taittinger Champagne.
There are spacious family suites available so everyone can really spread out. Need some retail therapy? A hotel shuttle bus departs every half hour to the air-conditioned shopping bonanza, Vivocity mall.
Once fully relaxed, it’s time for some thrills. Start with a day by meeting a Minion, Elmo and the cast from Madagascar at Universal Studios Singapore. Adrenaline junkies will love roller coasters Battlestar Galactica: Human vs. Cylon, indoor coaster Revenge of the Mummy and Transformers The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle.
The next day you could choose to visit indoor fun park KidZania or get a bird’s eye view of Sentosa at Skyline Luge Sentosa. There’s also the S.E.A. Aquarium and Adventure Cove Waterpark to check out. http://www.visitsingapore.com; www.sofitel.com
