Full accommodation information

Housed within an old, colonial era British military building dating back to 1904, The Barracks is a truly unique place to stay in Singapore. Set on Sentosa Island, it’s perfectly placed for enjoying some of the area’s top attractions, from the beautiful beaches to buzzing city adventures.

The hotel has been lovingly restored and converted, maintaining many of the charming original features while still incorporating all of the contemporary luxuries you’d wish for. The 40 rooms and suites will transport you away to the romance of a bygone era, where you can feel truly immersed in the heritage of the region.

When you’re not out exploring the wonders of Singapore, there’ll be plenty of places for you to relax, unwind and reflect on your time spent here. The Living Room is the exclusive lounge, where you can enjoy breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails. You’ll also be able to share facilities with the hotel’s sister properties, including the exotic Pool Deck, where you can bask in the cascading themed pools and lounge on the wicker day beds.

There are also plenty of things to do, too. Embark on a Heritage Tour, where veteran guides will bring the island alive with their personal stories. You could also learn a new skill at one of the recreational workshops or refresh with a morning yoga session by the pool.
