Village Hotel Sentosa Review 2022 : Perfect Staycation for family!

Looking for a family staycation?

We have the perfect location if you plan a family staycation for this upcoming holiday.

For families with 2 children, finding a hotel that accommodates 4 in a room can be challenging. This is especially so when you need everyone in the same room due to age and family bonding. Moreover, you would like to be in a location where attractions are nearby. 

Our favourite staycation destination is Sentosa. While we did manage to find such rooms in the past at Sofitel Sentosa and Equarius Hotel, prices had increased significantly to above $2000+ for a 3 Days 2, Nights stay. So when we heard Village Hotel Sentosa reopened its doors for staycation after 2 years haitus for under $800, it was a no-brainer since we had not stayed in the hotel before.

Village Hotel Sentosa

Village Hotel Sentosa

Village Hotel Sentosa opened its doors back in 2019. However, due to Covid, it was shut down for a period and converted into a community care facility. With the phasing out of Covid measures, Village Hotel Sentosa reopens its door to the public. Village Hotel Sentosa is managed by Fare East and shares facilities with The Outpost and The Barracks.


Village Hotel has the (almost) perfect location in Sentosa. It is located right smack in the middle of everywhere, within walking distance to Resort World Sentosa and just a stone's throw away from the monorail. 

The Mess Hall

The hotel is also opposite the Mess Hall, which houses several restaurants and a convenient 7-Eleven. 


Check-in Counter Village Hotel

Checking in was a breeze. The first hint that it is a family hotel is the dedicated counter for kids to check in on the family's behalf. In reality, it is a tad gimmicky, but if you have younger kids, they would love to climb up the steps and check in with you.

The next thing you notice will be the snacks cart. The cart will be refilled with different snacks for the guests every day. Snacks are free and a hit with kids!

The Rooms

We chose the Family Room for our accommodation. The Family Room combines 2 King beds or 1 King and Twin Bed. The room size is 36m2. You can also opt for the bigger Deluxe family room that comes in at 44m2

This combination is perfect for families of 3-5. The room is 2 adjoining rooms combined into 1. While the size is small, smart design and planning can partition the rooms into separate sleeping and changing areas.

 Bathroom amenities are provided together with a mini-fridge and coffee/tea maker.

Coffee and tea are not provided in the rooms. Instead, you can get them from the common area at the lift lobby of every floor. There is a wide choice of tea and coffee to pick from. Ice and drinking water are also available in the common area.

Both rooms are ensuite, and this means more bathrooms for everyone. The toilet bowl deserves mention as it is similar to the high-end ones in Japan. Yes, those toilet bowls that come with a washlet and more.

Each room comes with a 49-inch interactive Smart TV with cable channels. There is also a ledge under the TV that can convert to a desk if necessary. Overall the room was clean, modern and functional.

Our view from the room was nothing to shout about, but rooms facing the pools would have a better view.

The Facilities

FIVE Swimming Area

At the exit, you will see not one but 5 different pools. For families, the pool is the number one priority in any hotel. With a total of 5 pools, you are practically spoilt for choice.

Kids Pool and Playground

The children's pool is just next to the playground. There are some water features and small slides there.

TWO Main Pools
Main Pool

The  2 main pools are located in the centre. They are big enough to fit 20 pax per pool. These are free-form pools, more for leisurely swimming than laps. The pools here are about 0.95m in depth.

Pool with a View

If you intend to do laps, a deeper pool faces the South China Sea. Here you get a view of the sea while soaking in the sun.

Lazy River

There is a lazy river pool ala Adventure Cove for those who prefer to take it easy. Floats are provided if you want a ride. 


There is a gym for those who prefer a different kind of workout. There are more treadmills than weights there.


There are various activities at Village Hotel for the family. Young and old can participate in Village Playtivities such as becoming a Mini Housekeeper or Tote Bag Painting. Older folks can join Aqua Zumba or have a family movie night by the pool. 

Hotel Guests can also enjoy various benefits around Sentosa until 31st Dec. Full terms and conditions can be found here.


Native Kitchen

If you opt for rooms with breakfast, you will have it at Native Kitchen.

Breakfast was a decent spread of International and Local dishes such as Nasi Lemak. It has been a while since we had a buffet-style meal, so it was pleasantly good.

Over the past 2 days of our stay, the menu changed from one day to another.

Nasi Lemak

Be early for breakfast if you want a table in the main hall.

Supply Depot
If you are still hungry, there is a supply depot to stock your food and drinks. However, with 7-eleven right across from the hotel, you should head there instead to pick up your bites.

There are plenty more things to do around Sentosa, such as a visit to Universal Studios, dining at RWS or even a luge ride. These activities and the facilities at Village Hotel Sentosa should keep you occupied. Overall, we had a good stay at Village Hotel Sentosa and would love to come back again sometime!
