Singapore's Sentosa island welcomes an exclusive adults-only hotel â€“ a quiet sanctuary amid the bustling new cluster by Far East Hospitality.
Outpost Hotel offers 193 sleek rooms, all measuring equally at 24m2 â€“ including the Deluxe Room with patio. I stayed in the Deluxe Room with sea view, furnished with a king bed, a mini-sofa, an open-concept sink, and separate stalls for the toilet and shower.
The room might be no-frills, but it wasnâ€™t without style. It was polished with sleek minimalist touches: matte-black hardware lined the marble and glass furnishings, and a panelled floor-to-ceiling window that opened out to a beautiful sea view that stretched to infinity.
Strategically placed within Far East Hospitalityâ€™s (FEH) cluster, The Outpost Hotel allows its guests to take advantage of meeting and event facilities at the dedicated Events Centre heritage building. The Events Centre’s ground floor houses three rectangular breakout rooms, each able to accommodate up to 80 pax â€“ ideal for mid-scale meetings, networking sessions or even teambuilding activities.
On the second floor is the Revelry Hall, a 240m2Â space good for up to 300 person. Featuring high ceilings and elegant chandeliers, it is more suitable for sophisticated conferences or corporate events.
Groups can also make use of event spaces at the adjacent Village Hotel Sentosa. Village Square is a 330m2 space that can accommodate up to 300 pax and includes an open kitchen for more relaxed programmes. It can also be divided into smaller spaces should it be required. For even larger events, The Commune can host up to 500 people in a 778m2 space, making it the clusterâ€™s largest venue.
A great draw here is the private pool â€“ restricted to only Outpost Hotel guests â€“ a welcome respite with a calming sea view, away from the other themed pools in the main cluster.
The hotel also has a gym, while F&B options are available throughout the FEH properties. Outpost Hotel itself has a food truck and a pool bar at the pool deck. The lobby is situated on level three, away from the drop-off point, for greater privacy and quiet.
Upon arriving at the drop-off point, a staff member was ready to greet me and usher me up to the lobby. While waiting to be checked in, I was offered a delicious welcome mocktail in a copper pineapple mug complete with metal straw.
My favourite twist to the stay was the mini-bar selection. After checking in, I was given a basket and asked to pick out a complimentary range of snacks and a drink in place of a generic mini-bar. This personal touch is a great way to ensure guests feel taken care of during the stay.
The Outpost Hotel is stylish and minimal in both design and guest treatment, in a way that hits the right notes to make one remember the experience.
