The Barracks Hotel is the latest luxury accommodation to open at Sentosa. Housed in an old colonial building that used to serve as an army barracks, it exudes old-world charm mixed with modern stylings.
The 40 guest rooms bear a design accent reminiscent of tropical homes. With wooden and marble interiors, staying at The Barracks Hotel makes for a pleasant rustic experience. Vintage-styled writing desks and antique suitcases exude a timeless ambience that blends the old with the new. No expense has been spared, considering that this is Sentosa’s first five-star hotel opening since 2015.
Of course, no luxury stay is complete without amenities. Guests will enjoy direct access to an exclusive pool and a private jacuzzi. There is also the pool deck, comprising the Pamukkale Pool and the Amazonian Riverine lazy river. The former is inspired by the cascading pools of Turkey while the latter, with its luxurious foliage, mimics the experience of drifting through the Amazon Rainforest.
When it comes to dining, distinguishing gourmands can expect to tuck into local delicacies like curry chicken and popiah at The Living Room. The private lounge also offers a 24-hour service of cocktails, hot and cold beverages, and light snacks. If you fancy watching the sunset with a drink in hand, then the Pool Bar is where you want to be.
Rates at The Barracks Hotel start at $500 and bookings are now open for the month of October. Visit http://www.thebarrackshotel.com.sg for more details.
