Capella Singapore is one of the nation’s best bucolic boltholes. The heritage hotel, located on verdant Sentosa Island, may have utilised two restored British colonial buildings dating back to the 1880s, but it in itself is only nine years old.
History aside, the pride and joy of Capella Singapore is in its services. Thus, the grand resort has chosen to highlight five genial specials available for guests in the whole month of March 2018, to celebrate almost a decade of operations.
