Harbour Ville Hotel
Harbour Ville Hotel is one of the very few budget hotels near Sentosa Island that offer affordable room rates.
Situated at foot of Mount Faber hill, Hotel Harbour Ville is uniquely located to be within striking distance to both HarbourFront MRT (NE1/CC29) and Outram Park MRT (EW16/NE3) Stations.
Just outside Harbour Ville Hotel are an abundance of public buses that can bring guests to VivoCity and Chinatown heritage district. From VivoCity, guests can hop onto the Sentosa Express (light rail) to get into Sentosa Island.
Price: US$90 – US$120 per room night.
Singapore’s Largest Playground
As the name implies, Sentosa Island is such a huge playground that you probably need to spend at least one full day. The island is jam-packed with many interesting attractions and exciting theme parks.
You can start by visiting the world famous theme park, Universal Studios Singapore, where adrenaline junkies can “get high” from death defying and gut-wrenching thrill rides. Less adventurous folks can have their fun with the 3D immersive rides, live musical shows and movie character appearances.
Other interesting things to see and do on Sentosa include visiting the iconic Merlion (half-lion and half-fish) statue and relaxing strolls along the pristine white beach. You can also revisit World War II by visiting the coastal artillery battery war relic at Fort Siloso.
One also need not go far to catch sundowners in Singapore. The Mount Faber hill is just steps away from Harbour Ville Hotel and it’s a short 30-minute hike up to the highest point on this 350ft tall hill. Definitely one of the best “high points” in Singapore to catch sunset!
From the Jewel Box at Mount Faber, you can also take cable car to Sentosa. During the journey, you will be rewarded with bird’s eye view of the island, Universal Studio theme park, water promenade and the city’s skyline.
VivoCity – Largest Shopping Mall in Singapore
VivoCity is the biggest retail and entertainment venue in this island state and is located right next to HarbourFront MRT station. Guests can either walk (20-minute) to VivoCity or hitch a bus ride from Harbour Ville Hotel.
VivoCity is home to many well-known international brands like Gap, Aldo, Coach, Calvin Klein, Camper, Zara, Mango, Pull&Bear, Uniqlo, Desigual and many more.
The mall has a fluid and smooth flowing design that is a signature of the famous Japanese architect, Toyo Ito. On rooftop of VivoCity, one can find an open-air amphitheater where shoppers can enjoy the occasional performances and festivities.
Kids will also have a splashing fun time at the wading pool found on the rooftop Sky Park. There is even a large arcade gaming center called the Timezone where parents can have some bonding time with their kids.
Where to Eat?
Guests of Harbour Ville Hotel will have no problem getting food. Just behind the hotel is a friendly neighborhood where local coffee shops can be found. In fact, some of the best Singapore delights are found in these nondescript coffee shops.
A well-known restaurant in this area is the Good Chance Popiah at 149 Silat Avenue, 10-minute by foot from hotel. It is a 30-year old institution dishing out healthy spring rolls from passed-down recipes. Over here, you can wrap your own spring roll with delicious ingredients like steamed turnip and tofu.
If you like variety, then VivoCity will be your best bet. Inside this giant mall are loads of restaurants pandering to any palates with cuisine from Japanese to Indian to Thai and even Spanish.
For local fare, just head to Food Republic on Level 3 of VivoCity, a 900-seater food court with 30 stalls. This is the best place to sample popular Singapore delights like Chicken Rice, Laksa, Bak Kut Teh, Fried Hokkien Mee and Beef Noodles.
