Perfect location to enjoy best of Sentosa Island
If you are a first-time traveler to Singapore, I guess you will face the same dilemma which we faced during our first trip. To Stay in Singapore or Sentosa island?
I would suggest if your itinerary includes, exploring Sentosa Island as well as visiting Universal studio (which you must plan, if you are visiting with kids) then it’s a wise decision to split your stay between Sentosa and Singapore. This will save a lot of time and energy.
During our second visit to Singapore, we did the same. We stayed in Sentosa Island for 2 days and remaining 4 days in Singapore. Check out more about Sentosa itineraryand visit to Universal studioby clicking on the link.
We chose Le Meridian Sentosa for our stay and had a great time as the hotel has perfect location to enjoy best of Sentosa island. Sharing the Review of Le Meridian Sentosa to help you choose right place for your stay.
About the Property
Le Meridian is an international chain of upscale 5-star category hotels owned by Marriott International group. It offers 191 rooms which are a blend of colonial and contemporary design including deluxe rooms and special suits. Being a busy island city and business hub with limited space, most of the Hotels in Singapore are confined to limited area and doesn’t offer a lot of free space. Le meridian is relatively bigger hotel with lot of free space in front, thanks to its location.
This is the best part of Le Meridien, it’s perfectly located in the heart of Sentosa Island. Overlooking the iconic Merlion park with Imbiah Station right opposite the front door. Hotel is at walking distance from most of the attractions including beaches, Universal studio, SEA Aquarium etc. This gives you a freedom to hang around and explore happening restaurants or fun places without being worried about travelling far.
Ambience & Rooms
White colonial style heritage building houses aesthetically designed spacious rooms. Hotel offers different category of rooms including classic rooms, Premium heritage rooms, Heritage suit, Merlion suit (from here you can overlook the iconic Merlion), Onsen suit (Japanese style inspired suit)
Rooms offer all the amenities like coffee maker, water, television, Free WIFI, toiletries, Bath robes and slippers etc.
Like any 5 Star hotel, Le Meridien also provides most of the amenities including an outdoor pool, Fitness center, meeting spaces, ball rooms and restaurant.
Fitness center and room service is available 24 hours. Whereas pool is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Unfortunately, we couldn’t use any other facility but for room dinning service.
The menu had some Indian dishes also, which was comforting for our kid. My husband liked Chicken broth rice.
Hotel also provides facility to keep your luggage after checkout.
- For me the best highlight was definitely its location which allows easy access to all the major attractions of Sentosa by walking or monorail
- Rooms are more spacious and well lite. Washroom area is also spacious.
- If you are very particular about your fitness regime, fitness center with 24 hours access is big advantage.
- 24 hours room service is another advantage, given that most of the time you will be out of the hotel and come back tired.
We stayed in Le Meridien, Sentosa for 3 days and overall our experience was pleasant.Staff was friendly, helpful and prompt.Although being an experiential traveler, I love to try properties with unique feature or experience but this being Singapore I was not expecting much but a regular business hotel with different amenities.
