Sentosa works closely with its Green Partners towards its goal of environmentally-sustainable tourism. These are some of the projects that are shaping and protecting the island’s rich heritage and landscape.
Amara Sanctuary Resort
Amara Sanctuary Resort is housed in a former British military barracks, which has been carefully preserved to maintain the structure’s heritage.The original timber louver windows, doors and balustrades of the building were restored, while the damaged terracotta roof tiles were replaced with tiles from the same period.
Rasa Sentosa Resort
During Rasa Sentosa Resorts’ construction phase, the driveway leading to the resort was designed so that the signature Angsana tree did not have to be removed. The tree, which is believed to be over a hundred years old, is one of the largest of its kind in Singapore with a girth of 10.2 metres and a height of 27 metres. A lightning arrestor was installed near the tree to protect it.
Siloso Beach Resort
The Siloso Beach Resorts has interwoven its physical structures around the gentle slopes and green terrain the property sits on, and the trees that surround it.
Some green measures adopted by the resort include the installation of a dual-function system that serves as an air-conditioning cooling unit in its rooms to increase energy efficiency.
The Sentosa Resort and Spa
The 215-room resort features elegant low-rise colonial buildings, immaculately manicured grounds and architecture with an open design that connects one with nature.
The decades-old native trees on the resort’s grounds have been carefully conserved and the resort has implemented in-house environmental initiatives, including using energy-saving appliances and recycling, to minimise energy cost.
Situated atop the lush knolls of Sentosa, Capella Singapore’s architecture is inspired by the seamless integration of architectural elements with Sentosa Island’s natural topography, allowing new structures to follow the contours of the terrain to ensure a balance with nature.
Great attention was committed to preserving the five heritage trees native to the property during its construction phase, and plants native to the region, including Beetle Nut and Livistona Palms, have been used to complement the hotel’s historic colonial architecture. In total, Capella Singapore features 60 different tree species, and the hotel grounds will include over 5,000 trees, 2,000 palms, 700 bamboo, 40,000 ferns, 125,000 shrubs, and nearly 250,000 ground covers.
