Capella is one of the best hotel experiences in Singapore begins as you approach the hotel on Sentosa Island. A private driveway meanders up to a Capella masterpiece, where old and new fuse together in luxury. Curved, modern buildings gently intermingle with both our colonial buildings and the verdant, vibrant rainforest spread over 30 acres of land. The South China Sea is our backyard. Beautiful peacocks are often found roaming freely in the front courtyard.

Their architects, Foster + Partners, have ingeniously woven the best of old and new Singapore into an astonishing, breath taking fusion. You'll be received by their hotel staff in two historic bungalows named Tanah Merah I and Tanah Merah II (given conservation status on 7 August 2000 under the Conservation of Built Heritage), or "red earth" in Malay. Dating back to the 1880s, these British colonial buildings have been restored and perfectly complement the new hotel extension and villas.
