Rasa Sentosa Resort : Deluxe Pool View Review

Rasa Sentosa Deluxe Pool View room
Following our introduction to our staycation in Rasa Sentosa, we would like to bring you a sneak peek at our Deluxe Pool View Room.

As we needed an extra bed for the 4 of us, we deliberately search for rooms that can accomodate our preference. For Rasa Sentosa, the only rooms with an option for an addition sofa bed would be the Garden room or the Deluxe Pool View Room. We decided on the latter as it would provide more privacy compared to the Garden Room. Price wise it is also a cheaper option compared to the Garden room view.
The rooms were recently renovated and it is clothe in warm hues of brown. When we arrived, the extra bed was already set up. The extra bed was supposed to be for a child , but it should fit an adult. As seen , the 36 sqm room is rather spacious even with the extra bed set up.
There is. 2 door wardrobe with enough space to hang about 3 to 4 sets of clothes. Sufficient for a 2 to 3 day stay.
The room also comes with a build in safe and iron for your personal use. Given our previous experiences of theft in hotels, we reckon a safe is a must in any hotels.
Complimentary bottle water.
There are a few noteworthy 'freebies' in the room. First up are the. Standard complimentary drinking water.
Nonya Kuehs
We love the Nonya Kuehs that comes as a welcoming dessert.
Mini bar
The thing that impressed us most is a well stock minibar. The first round of mini bar is complimentary. You get 2 cans of Coke, 1 Sprite, 2 bottles of Orange juice and 2 bottles of Apple Juice. Sweet!
Coffee or tea
The Coffee and Tea selection is well stock as well for a 3 days stay.
Power plug
For travellers, there are plugs and a broadband connection in the room. However in this,day and age, most would prefer wi-fi and we are pleased that there are free Wifi connection in the Shangri La Rasa Sentosa Resort.
Hair dryer
Hair dryer are included as well. We think the room is pretty well stock and covers most bases.
Adult and child slippers
One thing we note, the room amenities were very child friendly. There are slippers and bathrobes provided for young kids. Great for a visit to the pool.
See through toilet
Another thing that fascinated us would be the see through toilet. This is perhaps another reason why staying in a pool view room is better than a garden room view. The bathroom blinds were up most of the time as it allows our parents to keep a close watch on us.
See through toilet
The marble clad bathroom comes with a shower and even a bathtub.

Shangri La branded amenities were provided along with lush toilets for bath.

The bathroom may not be as spacious as other hotels we had seen, but again it comes with kid friendly touches such as the step stool from Ikea.
Step stool
Lastly the room comes with a balcony looking out to the pool. There are no shelter at the balcony so do be aware of that especially when you hang clothes outside to dry.
We had the room that is almost to the end of the corridor. On one hand it is rather far to walk from the lift, but on the other hand, it does provide a panaromic view of the hotel.
Rasa Sentosa Resort
Overall the pool view room at Rasa Sentosa is comfortable. If you have a family of 2 little kids (below 8), we reckon that this would be a good option to consider when you opt for a staycation in Rasa Sentosa.
Time for a nap!

  1. Thanks for this great review! The details on the family friendly additions are just perfect, love that they have such attention to detail (even the IKEA step stool). Your room looks huge, this is a room and not a suite, correct? My family and I just came back from a staycation at Ocean suites, loved every bit but it was not as child oriented as yours. We resorted to carrying down a outdoor sidetable for my son to stand on so that he could reach the sink to wash his hands! My husband and I were just saying that we would love to do another sentosa staycation but probably won't splurge again on Ocean suites.. this review will really help us with our next staycation planning. Thank you!

  2. Ocean suite is definately bigger, but I don't think you can put a double bed in there. The rooms are decent size, but may look a little bigger on photo due the the angle taken. Nevertheless, we do think rasa is a good place for a staycation :)
