Sentosa Cove is an affluent waterfront resort that is sometimes described as the Monte Carlo of Singapore. The 120 hectares land is home to several luxury condos and bungalows, including parkings for supercars and yachts.
The place is far enough from the city frenzy to create a feel of a remote island community but still provides convenient access to the hustle and bustle of the downtown. In fact, Sentosa Cove has one of the most magnificent views of the city skyline, right on the opposite shore. If you imagine yourself living on an island like Sir Richard Branson but want to stay within a taxi ride distance from a high-tech megapolis, this place might be just right for you.
It shouldn’t be a surprise then that Sentosa Cove was one of the locations where the movie Crazy Rich Asians took place. The heroine Astrid Leong owns one of her multiple apartments at Cape Royale, a graceful condominium that overlooks the ocean. She definitely has a good taste.
And while owning an apartment here may be beyond what most people can afford, Sentosa Cove is an amazing place to spend a relaxing evening on a weekend. Stroll along the harbour as the yachts pass by, enjoy a glass of wine at one of the cozy cafes and sit on the ocean shore watching the sunset as the magnificent Singapore skyline lights up with all colours of the rainbow. After all, the best things in life are free.
