For you who like to travel, you might be familiar with the name “Sentosa”.
Sentosa is a resort island with an area of almost 470 ha at the southern coast of Singapore’s main island. Before the 19th century, Sentosa was known as Pulau Panjang or Pulau Blakang Mati according to its folklore.
In the development of Pulau Blakang Mati, many experts are planning the land use of island development. As a result, Pulau Blakang Mati was planned to be a space for recreation and tourism. In addition, Singapore Tourist Promotion Board suggested this island with hotels, golf courses, attractions, a casino, leisure activities, and a greyhound racing stadium.
In 1969, there was a contest to rename the island and therefore, Pulau Blakang Mati was renamed as Sentosa Island in 1970. The island is named after a Bahasa/Malay word “Sentosa” with the meaning of peace, tranquility, and safety; with the hope that it can be a place of tranquillity, prosperity, and a place for tourists. Shortly after, Sentosa Island became the key project to increase Singapore’s tourism sector.
In 1974, the first infrastructure for residents or tourists to go to Sentosa is cable cars. Meanwhile, the first tourist attractions that were built in the same year are Sentosa Golf Club, the development of Fort Siloso, camping sites, and roller-skating area. Then, in the effort of increasing the number of tourists, a monorail system to Sentosa Island began its operation in 1982.
Starting from 2010, Resort World Sentosa which includes Universal Studio, Marine Life Park, Adventure Cove Waterpark, a casino, Sentosa hotels, KidZania, Madame Tussauds museum, and other tourist destinations were being developed. In addition, the transportation system to/from Sentosa Island was also being expanded. As a result, these days, Sentosa Island has become one of the most visited areas by both residents and tourists in Singapore.
Famous for its luxurious tourist attractions far from the bustling city, there are many Sentosa hotels that offer full service and facilities to make your stay in Sentosa Island even more fun. Whether you plan to have a staycation Singapore moment in Sentosa hotels, visit tourist spots, or enjoy the scenery on public holiday Singapore, Sentosa Island will not disappoint you.
