Singapore, August 2, 2007: Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa, the stylish new lifestyle resort on Singapore's Sentosa Island is celebrating its soft opening with introductory rates starting from just S$285++ per night, valid until the end of August.

Amara Sanctuary Resort marks the first phase of the transformation of Sentosa to a sophisticated lifestyle island. It is located within 3.5 hectares of secluded tropical gardens on the hillside above Sentosa's popular Palawan Beach. Just ten minutes drive from the city centre, it is a perfect urban lifestyle retreat for both business and leisure travellers to the city state.

Blending colonnaded colonial architecture, contemporary design, a secluded tropical landscape, fine dining and 'casual chic' style, Amara Sanctuary offers a great resort experience within easy reach of the city centre.

Singapore's colonial architectural heritage is also uniquely retained within the resort through the conversion of an original 1930s built British Sergeants Quarters into sensational Courtyard and Verandah Suites.

The resort's Japanese fine dining restaurant, Si Bon, is also a conversion from the oldest chapel on Sentosa, and retains its original brick wall structure.

"Historic colonial architecture mixed with contemporary design amid lush tropical gardens, all within easy access of the city centre, have given us a great opportunity to create a resort retreat which is nonetheless very close to the city "“ something which is unique to Singapore," said Amara Group CEO, Albert Teo.

Owned and managed by Singapore's Amara Group, the 121-room contemporary resort is designed by Japanese architect Masaki Miyake, who focused on clean lines and uncluttered design in a natural palette of colours that blend with the resort's natural tropical setting.

Amara Sanctuary Resort's sensational dining options include an all-day restaurant Shutters serving modern intercontinental cuisine; Thanying, an authentic Royal Thai restaurant; and Si Bon, a delightful boutique Japanese restaurant in a former military chapel, serving the authentic Japanese delicacy "Kushikatsu" or skewer cuisine "“ which is rare outside Japan and unique in Singapore.

Amara Sanctuary Resort has a host of facilities, including three swimming pools, one of which is a sleek roof-top infinity edged pool overlooking the South China Sea reserved exclusively for adult guests, and two family pools in the gardens. A health and wellness Spa and fully equipped gym will open later in the year.
