Sentosa, The State of Fun, is Singapore’s premier island resort getaway and Asia’s leading leisure destination. This 500-hectare resort island is home to an exciting array of themed attractions, award-winning spa retreats and resort accommodation, alongside lush greenery, golden sandy beaches, world-renowned championship golf courses and even a deep-water yachting marina and luxury residences - making it a compelling destination for business and leisure for millions of visitors from all around the world. Making Sentosa its home, too, is Singapore’s first integrated resort, Resorts World Sentosa, which operates Southeast Asia’s first Universal Studios theme park.
Unique among leisure destinations, Sentosa (meaning peace and tranquility in Malay) is situated on the fringe of Singapore’s city centre, just minutes away from the central business district. The island is easily accessible via various modes of transport including the Sentosa Express from VivoCity and the Singapore Cable Car Sky Network which offers an aerial view of the HarbourFront precinct. Visitors can also choose to take a leisurely stroll via the Sentosa Boardwalk, the only garden-themed boardwalk in Southeast Asia. The island was formerly a fishing village and British military base during World War II and was transformed into an idyllic island resort in 1972 as a recreational space for Singaporeans to enjoy. Today, Sentosa has become a premier leisure destination with some 19 million local and foreign guests visiting the island annually.
