The wife and I decided to spend the Vesak Day long-weekend with our son on a "staycation" in Sentosa.
And between visits to the new "Adventure Cove" water park and iFly, we decided to go check out Quayside Isle at Sentosa Cove. This is the latest F&B hotspot across from One degree 15 Marina Club, which primarily serves those rich (and some famous) people that live in their villas and humongous apartments around Sentosa Cove.
For those who has not been to Quayside Isle (yet), the area has really blossomed into quite a hip and happening place, littered with many restaurants, bistros and bars. You will find some familiar names like Picotin and Brussels Sprouts as well as other quaint little joints.
And while dining at the restaurants, one gets the full view of the Marina with its many boats and crafts of various makes and sizes.
The 240-room W Hotel, which opened its doors in September 2012, is located next-door to Quayside Isle.
And situated across the road from Quayside Isle is The Residences at W. This is the 228 units ultra-luxurious condominium project developed by CDL. Other than the usual frills, e.g. concierge service, valet parking, spa facilities etc., a total of 34 berths (that can accommodate yachts of up to 12-metre in length) are available for residents that own boats in addition to their fleets of Lamborghinis and Ferraris.
However, many of the apartments seem to be vacant from what we can see. But at an asking price of between $2,500 - $3,000psf, we are not overly surprised!
The number of vacant apartments became more pronounced as darkness fell. So we reckoned parking (for cars, that is) is not a major issue for residents at the moment.
