Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for 1 night as part of a wedding party and maybe it's the wedding party vibes, but I have to say that this is one of the best hotels I've been to around this region. Set in an environment of tropical lush greenery with peacocks occasionally passing you by, you will feel quite luxurious and happy with the comfortably sized Deluxe Room with it's huge bathroom that come with both bath and shower sections. The breakfast has a great selection of international cuisine and you'll be spoiled for choice. I was also fascinated by the coffee machine and the range of coffee they offer. Service was also good and I would definitely come back here for a staycation if I ever get the opportunity again.

Historic property surrounded by greenery and probably the only hotel with more then 3 Swimming pools. Full equipped gym and restaurants serving devious food. Close to universal studios and other of Sentosa’s attractions

Beautiful Resort in Sentosa. Very well located, all the major attractions are easily accessible and some are very close. Everything was great, but it took one month for me to get back the security amount that was blocked from my credit card at the time of check-in. This is very disappointing. Everything else was Superb.

Tucked within the privacy of nature and close enough to the hustle and bustle of Sentosa, I would highly recommend Amara to anyone who love nature and enjoys some privacy for quality rest and rejuvenation. The resort has really beautiful flowers and lots of greenery with pretty peacocks roaming the compound. Check in was also efficient and staffs were kind and informative about sight-seeing places. The room was really clean and comfortable and had a great view of the sea.

We opted to stay here as it was out from the center of Singapore, yet easily accessible via taxi. The grounds are lush with vegetation and very quiet. Our room was in an older Colonial section. We had a large bedroom and bath, with a separate sitting room and covered balcony. There was a short pathway down to the beach and area attractions. We had a view of the sea from our balcony, which was very nice. The serve was friendly and helpful. The main restaurant does a lovely breakfast buffet. We also enjoyed room service several times, which was great.

Lovely hotel set back from the beach and the main area of Sentosa in a tranquil garden. We stayed in the colonial style building which was lovely, high ceilings and large rooms overlooking the pool. Due to jet lag we didn't experience the breakfast so can't comment on that and also did not have lunch/dinner there as we were exploring the island. Staff were extremely polite and helpful, the only quibble was that check-in took a long time as the room apparently took over 90 minutes to prepare. Aside from that it was great value for the location and we would definitely come again.

This is a hotel inside the sentosa island. Rooms are nicely done and ask for a room with a balcony, which has a view of the bay/sea - gives you a good view of boats passing by. Dining options are limited : very limited & expensive room service menu and the same can be said about their main restaurant. They seem to have a permanent corporate customer in a consulting company for which they have a dedicated front desk and that means that for all others the service levels and service availability at the front desk can be a tad slow / neglected. They have peacocks roaming freely in the hotel campus, which gives a good feel.

we have tried 2 rooms: the one with access to the pool and the cheapest room. both rooms were ok although i prefer the cheapest room as it was spacious and looks newly-renovated. and the rooms are amongst the cheapest in expensive Sentosa. however, the check-in service is horrible. their decision to allow students (the 'university' is located within the hotel compounds) to man the counters for experience is commendable, but i don't think they should be manning ALL the counters. they should stick to that one counter allocated for them, as they are clearly still struggling with handling the traffic. worse, they even charged the $100 to my credit card by mistake, then instead of apologising, called me to say they would like to "encourage" me to use the money on hotel's services. i thought that was ridiculous, and of course i chose to not spend the money and requested for refund instead. so hotels are ok, but service is really meh. amara should stop being too stingy with paying staff and shouldnt let students run the whole show.

Could have been better! Had issues with check-in despite booking the hotel room more than 6 months in advance. They offered to give us 2 twin bed room instead of a double bed room. After arguing for 20 mins, they finally managed to provide us with a room. The resort is nice, but was unhappy with the staff at reception. Rooms need an update for the price they charge.

Check in was very prompt. Went into our room at the 2nd floor, has this funny smell, 2 single beds with hard beds, pillow was too soft. Wardrobe has this old wooden smell. Fridge not even cold at all (even though noticed was placed that it was for 'chilling'). NO HOT WATER after we came back tired after our friend's wedding from 12 midnight to 3am (Had to wait) - very unacceptable for a hotel located in Sentosa. Despite my multiple phone calls and complaints, the duty manager only had to offer late check outs, 1st time - 1pm then 2pm, then 3pm. (I had already a 1pm late check out in place.) On the next day, we had a short rest after breakfast, and the concierge called at 12 noon to ask whether we'd be checking out soon as they had to clean the rooms etc. Wow - you chase your guests out too?! It was not worth the price I was paying! Asked for a wine opener; was served by a very polite and courteous staff, however was asked to wait 20mins as he was the only one serving during the late night shift and what was appalling was that the resort had only ONE miserable wine opener to the WHOLE resort. And one more thing to add, I ordered and finished my room service by 5pm, when we were back from the wedding the tray wasn't cleared, we went out and came back at 3am, the tray still wasn't cleared! Wow, for a resort in sentosa. I'm gobsmacked.
