Le Meriden Sentosa Staycation : Heritage Suite Review


The Wacky Duo
We are back to another staycation in our favourite staycation island destination.... Sentosa. Having a staycation in Sentosa seems to be an annual affair for us. It is a getaway from the city and the perfect opportunity to relax in the shortest time. For this year we chose to spend a night at Le Meriden Sentosa.

Le Meriden Sentosa
 Le Meriden Sentosa was formerly branded as Movenpick Heritage. Located next to the Merlion of Sentosa, it is easily accessible via Imbiah monorail station. The location is also ideal for those who wants to spend time between Siloso Beach and RWS attractions. That means Kidzania, Mosh, Port of Lost Wonder, Universal Studios, Sea Aquarium, Luge Rides and more are within walking distance to the hotel. If you intend to visit the different parts of Sentosa, Le Meriden would have the best location amongst the hotels in Sentosa.

Check in
Le Meriden Lobby
Checking into hotels in Sentosa is mostly a timely affair. Most hotels adhere strictly to the check in time of 2 or 3 pm.  We tried our luck with an early unannounced arrival at 1 pm and got our keys to the room in a jiffy. Already the staycation started on a positive note.

We love the light and bright lobby and feel refresh already.

After our welcome drinks, it's time to head to the room.

Heritage Suite

With a family of 4 , a normal room would be insufficient. Le Meriden Sentosa has the Heritage Suite that comes with a separate living room that comes with a sofa bed.  The setup is ideal for a family. As cosy as it looks, the sofa bed was a tad stiff . Great for kids, not so good for adults.

Thankfully the plush bed in the main sleeping area makes up for it. There are 2 TV in the room so it means everyone can watch their own show during the stay.

The attached bathroom is well spaced and decorated. It comes with everything you need.

Toiletries are provided too. We love how the rooms are interconnected. The living room is connected to the toilet and the bedroom. The toilet is accessible from the bedroom too. You can literally run around in circles if you choose to.The only downside to the room is that it does not have a view.


I would tag this hotel as a boutique hotel. It does not have as many amenities such as a children club, but it does have a pool... and for fuss free kids, it is more than enough.

Breakfast is provided for our stay

There are 2 seating areas for you to choose.

 We suggest you choose a spot on the right as it is more spacious.


Breakfast was buffet style. There is a nice mix of western and eastern food. You should be able to find something you like to have your fill. Talking about food, other than the hotel's restaurant, the other food options around the hotel can be found at Imbiah Station. If you are looking for a decent restaurant, take a walk to RWS that is less than 400 m away.

Staying so close to the Merlion, it will be a sin if you do not take the obligatory shot of the Merlion.

Impressive huh?

It looks good at night too.

We only stayed a night at Le Meriden. if we had more time, we would love to extend it!

What we love
  • Size of the room 
It's  the biggest we stayed in Sentosa
  • Location
Ideally suited near all child-friendly spots. We can park the car at the hotel and travel by foot or monorail ( By the way, carpark is available and complimentary for hotel guest only).
  • Breakfast


Since we stayed there for only one night, this review will be short and sweet as it is time to check out. Till the next time Le Meriden Sentosa!
