The design of W Singapore has been inspired by modern interpretations of Sentosa’s landscape. For instance, upon arrival, guests are welcomed by a waterfall with projections of graphic patterns on the water, while the outdoor terrace features glowing grass lights, rock-shaped daybeds, and an over-scaled rock garden. Patterns evoking Singapore’s national flower, the Vanda Miss Joaquim Orchid, can be found throughout W Singapore. In the hotel’s W Lounge, a DJ console carved out of natural stone creates a centerpiece.

W Singapore features an Away Spa, the W brand’s signature spa concept. Guests of the spa are greeted by rainforest-inspired decor and natural sculptural pieces. Away at W Singapore offers nine Away guestrooms and suites, located on the spa level of the hotel and each featuring a private plunge pool. The hotel also features GYM fitness center and WET pool deck, featuring a 1,300 square meter outdoor pool with 24 underwater speakers.

All guestrooms and suites at W Singapore feature a signature W Bed, Munchie Box stocked with exclusive amenities, 40” LED HD TV, surround sound system, high-speed Wi-Fi, and MP3 player plug-and-play device.

W Singapore features more than 1,500 square meters of meeting and event space, including an 732-square-meter Great Room, seven meeting rooms, and an outdoor space outfitted with adaptable conference furniture and audio/visual equipment.
