A chic his­toric ho­tel sur­rounded by rain­for­est, the five-star Capella Sin­ga­pore is min­utes from the Amara. De­signed by Fos­ter and Part­ners, the prop­erty com­bines two 1880s bun­ga­lows – which once ac­com­mo­dated Bri­tish Royal Ar­tillery of­fi­cers – with curv­ing mod­ern ar­eas, all set on 30 acres of grounds.

The ho­tel of­fers more than 21,500 square feet of event space, in­clud­ing Sin­ga­pore’s first cir­cu­lar ball­room. A glass-dome floods the pil­lar­less 8,400-square-foot venue with nat­u­ral light; it can ac­com­mo­date 500 theatre-style or 700 for a re­cep­tion. The Gallery seats 100 guests for a ban­quet, with floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows over­look­ing the gar­dens. The three Sen­tosa rooms hold up to 220 peo­ple theatre-style when com­bined, and look out onto the South China Sea.

Out­door op­tions in­clude ar­eas for pool­side din­ing and par­ties. The prop­erty also has a spa and di­rect ac­cess to the pub­lic beach, a five-minute walk away.
