Ah Sentosa, Asia’s favorite playground… Packed with pretty, breezy beaches, lush, explorable nature and wild entertainment (from Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom to S.E.A. Aquarium, Universal Studios Singapore, and MegaZip Adventure Park to name a few), this local island destination is ideal for family vacations – but not all of its many hotels are equally good at accommodating children who (unlike adults) cannot be entertained by island vibes alone. That’s why we’ve picked out the best family-friendly hotels in Sentosa with rich, well-thought-out offers for their youngest guests. You can’t go wrong with Sentosa this summer, and you definitely can’t go wrong with any of these hospitality wizards!

Though it used to be a former site of the British Army in the late 19th and early 20th century, Amara is now true to its name, nothing less than a luxurious rainforest sanctuary – and a very kid-friendly one at that. Enjoy carefree splashing in its many pools that include a kiddy pool complete with water slides or let your kiddos get their hands dirty with DIY crafts and climbing in nature with ForestPlay SG. Besides this fun, educational collaboration, the resort also has a Club Tiny program with interactive games and fun activities, while its six gorgeous Family Suites – housed in a former colonial barrack with a private verandah overlooking the infinity pool – can be transformed into a safari with an in-room Teepee bed and binoculars. Use them to spot as many peacocks on the grounds as you can!
Village Hotel Sentosa is the newest hotel in Sentosa that caters to vacationing families. Kids are treated as more than equals here right from the check-in (which your kiddos can handle themselves from start to finish)! One of the hotel’s most jaw-dropping facilities is its water-park-scale Pool Deck – a combination of four unique pool experiences including Pamukkale, Adventure, Lay River and Children’s Play pool designed after tropical coastlines with a tiny beach, slides and water features. If you manage to leave the pool deck for a minute, join a guided Scavenger Hunt at Sentosa Nature Discovery or enjoy a family-friendly movie night under the stars with free popcorn all around. Since the hotel is conveniently located at the center of the island, it’s the perfect base for exploring the island’s other top attractions!

W Singapore is the epitome of cool, vibrant luxury that may not seem like the most kid-friendly hotel at first glance. However, this wonderful hotel is full of surprises, including their kids-stay-free policy, random treats kids get throughout their stay and perks like a private plunge pool you get with the Away Room and a couple of other suites (though you won’t miss out even if you decide on another accommodation arrangement – the hotel’s WET® Outdoor Pool is very kid-friendly). Their signature Whatever/Whenever service makes the experience of staying at W highly customizable – just think of all the ways in which you can take advantage of their in-room babysitting!
