Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa
With views overlooking the Singapore Strait, this 121-room hotel scores big on location. Palawan and Siloso beach are minutes away, as is Resorts World Sentosa.
A blend of old world architecture and modern design, the hotel also boasts choice dining options.
Sure, there's some wear and tear and service can be inconsistent at times, but overall, this still ranks as a luxury getaway from the hubbub of town.
