The island of Singapore is world-renowned for its booming economy and eclectic fusion of Chinese, Malay, South Indian, and Western culture, but its southernmost point serves as a resort paradise that’s difficult to beat. The island of Sentosa is rife with attractions, including Universal Studios Singapore, Marine Life Park, and Adventure Cove Waterpark, making it the ideal breeding ground for the world’s finest luxury resorts. Once guests have experienced the Sentosan life of fine dining, drinking, and lounging by the beach, they’ll wonder how they ever lived without it.

Here are Sentosa’s most alluring properties:
