Still going on and on about how there’s “nothing to do in Singapore?” This is your sign to finally take that leap and explore all that Sentosa has to offer. Believe it or not, there are tons of attractions and activities you’ve probably never heard of, waiting to be discovered.
Here’s the best part — did you know that Sentosa has locals-only deals that have been specially curated for Singaporeans and local residents, ranging from 1-for-1 dining deals and enticing hotel deals to discounted multi-attraction packages, and so much more?
Seriously, all you need to do is to sign up for a free Sentosa Islander membership — it’s that easy.
Be it shopping, eating, exploring, or even just lazing around, here are 10 ways to spend a perfect weekend in Sentosa, where discovery never ends, all without breaking the bank.
1. Take a well-deserved beach day
We all know Sentosa is famous for its beaches (and beach clubs).
So, if your idea of an ideal weekend involves sipping on cocktails and soaking up the sun without a care in the world, hit up vibrant beachfront dining options like Bikini Bar, Ola Beach Club, Coastes, and Sand Bar to enjoy 10% off all F&B items.
But if you want to take in the stunning views of Siloso Beach while watching thrill-seekers leap off Singapore’s one and only bungy jump, tuck into 1-for-1 mains at Summerhouse Beach Club by AJ Hackett.
2. Indulge the kids on a family day out
Can’t decide what to do on family days out? There’s plenty to keep you (and the kids) entertained at Sentosa!
Let the kids play, climb, and crawl to their heart’s content with discounted tickets to Nestopia, a unique open-air play space with challenging obstacle courses and long slides, followed by an exciting afternoon at Sentosa 4D AdventureLand, where you’ll get 20% off rides (and free ice cream).
Finally, enjoy 10% discounts and 1-for-1 deals on selected VR packages and tickets at Headrock VR, one of Southeast Asia’s biggest VR theme parks, where you’ll get to brave storm blizzards, hunt down zombies and face your fears atop a towering skyscraper. Children under the age of nine will have a blast at Hello My Dino!, a futuristic playground with interactive elements aplenty.
3. Enjoy a leisurely brunch with friends
If you, like me, can never say no to brunch on the weekend, Sentosa’s buzzing with a fabulous repertoire of restaurants and cafes to choose from.
Whether you prefer authentic Greek fare by the sea at Mykonos on the Bay, Argentinian and Latin American flavours at Panamerica, or Spanish Josper grilled meats at Sabio by the Sea, you can look forward to enjoying up to 15% off your food bill, 1-for-1 cocktails, and more.
Those who wish to truly indulge can visit Kwee Zeen for its popular Sofitel Sentosa Sunday Brunch (S$208++ for two, U.P. S$128 per diner), a fabulous buffet showcasing seafood on ice (like oysters and caviar), live stations, cheese and cold cuts, and housemade desserts — it’ll certainly be an afternoon to remember!
4. Have a date to remember
Wanna impress your significant other with a romantic date idea that’ll sweep them off their feet?
Embark on an unforgettable evening with 10% off the Sunset and City Lights Dinner Cruise onboard the luxurious Royal Albatross Luxury Tall Ship. Catch the sunset as you feast on a sumptuous multi-course dinner and cruise along Singapore’s calm port waters, in a unique sailing experience unlike any other.
Another hotspot for intimate dinners (and even proposals, wink wink) is Dusk Restaurant & Bar, located 100 metres above sea level at Mount Faber Peak. Take some time to admire the panoramic views as you take the cable car ride up, before enjoying 10% off the restaurant’s signature Modern European tapas with a minimum spend of S$80.
5. Pamper yourself with a staycation
If you’re seeking an idyllic weekend (beach) getaway without actually getting away, a staycay in Sentosa might be right up your alley.
Take your pick from the variety of hotels and resorts dotted around the island, each offering exclusive deals and discounts for Sentosa Islander members. For instance, guests who book either the Deluxe Room or Roof Garden Suite Queen at Siloso Beach Resort can enjoy their third night’s stay for free.
Those who long for the ultimate pampering session can book a 3D2N stay at Oasia Resort Sentosa in either the Premier or Junior Suites (Best Flexible Rates) and enjoy complimentary breakfast, a relaxing massage, and a Cryotherapy facial.
6. Embark on a sea voyage
If you’ve always wanted to live out your dream of cruising down the straits onboard a yacht, make a date with YachtCruiseSG — simply book a three-hour speed boat tour and enjoy an extra hour for free, along with complimentary drinks and a whole lotta fun.
Hosting a party with friends and family? You can get 20% off a four-hour Private Yacht Charter to Lazarus Island with White Sails Yacht, including a complimentary anchor off Eagle Bay Beach Lagoon. It’s the perfect setting for large groups, given that you only need to pay for 10 pax — subsequent pax (up to eight lucky individuals) can enter for free.
7. Make perfume based on your personality
If you’ve yet to venture into the world of aromas, why not try crafting a bespoke perfume based on your personality at Scentopia, an augmented reality-driven perfume bar and retail space?
Sentosa Islander members get to enjoy a 1-for-1 perfume workshop, which involves taking a short personality test and creating your signature fragrance at the innovative touchless perfume-making bar. With over 200 scent oils to sniff and choose from, you’re bound to leave feeling (and smelling) extra fresh.
8. Get up close and personal with wildlife
If you’ve always wanted to learn more about the diverse species of wildlife Sentosa is home to, there are several educational and enriching SentoSights tours you can sign up for, with exclusive discounts of up to 10% off.
Take a walk on the “wild side” and peek into the lives of nocturnal creatures with the Sentosa Naturalist Night Adventure (from S$18.20 off for one pax) tour, which takes you through a rainforest system along the Mt Imbiah Nature Trail.
But if you’re more intrigued by what lies beneath the waters, the Sentosa Intertidal Exploration (from S$17.01 off for one pax) tour is the perfect opportunity to discover the hidden world of marine life along the Coastal Trail.
Alternatively, budding avian enthusiasts can learn how to spot and identify some of the birds found on Sentosa by joining the Introduction to Birdwatching (from S$18.20 off for one pax) tour.
9. Explore hidden trails
Does the idea of exploring hidden trails appeal to you? If yes, you can get 10% off A Taste of Time Travel: Back to 1870s (Fort Serapong), a multi-sensory tour that involves exploring abandoned military sites and secret tunnels inaccessible to the public. You’ll be expected to complete exciting missions and experience history like never before — it’s definitely one-of-a-kind!
Another hidden history-loaded forest trail, the Serapong Trail (10% off), will take you through historical military ruins, native wildlife, and more, ending with a trek up to one of the highest points on the island,
History junkies will also enjoy the Fort Siloso Night Experience (10% off), a walking tour of Fort Siloso, led only by a kerosene lamp and a guide who’ll take you through the realistic experiences that WWII soldiers had to endure themselves.
10. Do absolutely everything
Can’t choose just one activity? If you want to get the most bang for your buck, you can enjoy 30% off the Sentosa FUN PASS, a one-stop ticket that lets you enjoy even more savings as you eat, stay, and play your way around the island.
There are three different FUN PASS options available, which entitle you to tokens (one token = S$1) that can be used to redeem attractions, F&B items, and souvenirs at retail outlets. You can even get up to 10 free tokens, on top of the 30% discount.
The FUN PASS is valid for 180 days and can be shared between family and friends, so there’s plenty of time to explore the island!
Now that we’ve given you a glimpse of these sweet, sweet locals-only deals, why not sign up for the Sentosa Islander membership today? A weekend of fun awaits!
