THE OUTPOST HOTEL SENTOSA SINGAPORE
I booked a stay at the hotel in November 2022 under the Coast-to-Coast package. During my stay, I checked into the 24sqm monochromatic Deluxe Room Sea View which played it all double-glazed tall windows, wood furnishings as well as cool and muted colours with striking black lines. The pantry was equipped with a Nespresso coffee machine as well as Pryce tea-making facilities, with my minibar consisting of five items I had pre-selected earlier at the reception area, including Amazin’ Graze Pandan Coconut Nut Mix and Hunter’s White Truffle and Porcini Gourmet Hand Cooked Potato Chips. The very spacious rainfall shower area allowed ample space for vigorous naked pirouettes, with bathroom amenities courtesy of Appelles Apothecary & Lab. As part of the hotel’s sustainable living efforts, a special tap at the vanity sink dispenses cold filtered water.
The highlight of the package would be the 60-min Maritime Heritage (Southern Island) Adventure RHIB Ride. Clad in heavy life jackets, guests board a rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) – normally used for high speed military and emergency operations – and enjoy a coastal ride around the Southern Islands as your captain shares more about the history of the Southern Islands as well as information about the various maritime trade vessels which the boat zooms past. When the boat accelerates, makes sharp turns or when the waters get choppy, the experience does feel at parts like an exhilarating rollercoaster ride, with the occasional sea spray adding some tactile fun to the proceedings. (Pro tip: shorter boats make sharper turns, something to consider if you get to choose your seacraft that day. ) At some point, we pass Kusu Island, and the boat makes a brief stop to enjoy the sunset near a fleet of private yachts on which families were enjoying smoky BBQ and playful dips in the open water. We hollered for food, and the families laughed and raised a toast to us as we zipped off with our unsatiated satay yearnings.
In terms of wellness facilities, hotel guests have access to four different pools – the Adventure Pool, the Lazy River Pool, the rooftop Sky Pool as well as the hotel’s iconic Pamukkale Pool, inspired by the dramatic cascading pools in Turkey and the best spot in the hotel for sun worship and sunset views. Guests should note that while The Outpost Hotel is an adults-only property, it shares common public spaces with adjacent sister properties such as Village Hotel Sentosa and The Barracks Hotel Sentosa, with only the Sky Pool being truly children-free.
The hotel also organises various activities under its Outpost Xperience programme such as Sachi soy-wine cocktail and Compendium gin cocktail-making classes as well as fitness activities such as the street dance-based Supafresh Fitness as well as morning Partner Yoga.
I attended the Sachi soy-wine cocktail-making class and learnt fun facts about the soy industry in Singapore (such as the extent of Singapore’s export of beancurd overseas) as well as the forward-thinking and exciting plans ahead for the Sachi brand. During my stay, I also attempted the morning Partner Yoga class and confirmed that only gargantuans (that’s an adjective, not a noun, but yet I approve – Editor) in tight tees with giant biceps and furry chests are designed to perform Yoga Chakrasanas while unwieldy Jigglypuffs such as myself can only muster flailing turtle-on-back-without-shell at best.
Breakfast is served at Sol & Ora, the Latin-Mediterranean rooftop restaurant from the 1-Group folks. Like many other Far East Hospitality properties in Sentosa (including Oasia Resort Sentosa), breakfast is an a la minute affair, with guests being able to order one choice of main as well as enjoy a mini buffet spread comprising cold cuts, cheeses, congee and more. Aside from Western morning dishes such as Bagel Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and Crispy Waffles, guests can opt for the daily specials which are usually local dishes such as Laksa or Mee Siam.
Sol & Ora is part of the multi-concept rooftop space 1-Altitude Coast which also comprises the rooftop infinity pool as well as the Rooftop Bar and Day Club which is notable for being one of the bars within Sentosa Island which closes the latest. I caught up with some friends on Friday night at the Rooftop Bar and Day Club, gossiping and sharing secrets while sipping Penfolds Max’s Rosé, and the clubby rooftop vibes made me feel like I’m 21 and rabak (means out of control – Singapore Slang Expert) again.
The Coast-to-Coast Package came with $100 dining credit to wine and dine at Bikini Bar, Coastes or Ola Beach Club. My friends and I decided to spend our vouchers on lunch at Coastes and pigged out on comfort fare such as Chilli Crab Dip with Soft Shell, Mussels with Fresh Herbs, Angus Tenderloin Cubes, Ayam Panggang Burger and Fish & Chips. My favourite dish was the Prawn and Chorizo Aglio Olio, which offered all sorts of oink-slick slurp-worthy delight.
