If you've been dreaming of holidaying right by the sea, we've got ya. Here's Sentosa's lesser-known secret. Nestled on the western tip of Resorts World Sentosa are the idyllic Beach Villas. Transporting you away from the hustle and bustle of Singapore, the resort is an exquisite series of secluded tropical sanctuaries boasting spectacular sea views, personal butlers and luxurious comforts.

Depending on your group size, choose from the one-, two-, or three-bedroom villas. Each villa boasts bright and breeze spaces, with tasteful design and gorgeous furnishings with a timber deck looking out to the glittering harbour. Or better yet, book out The Palace, a whole villa complete with a spacious living room, private entertainment room and four oversized bedrooms. It has its very own lap pool in addition to its private timber sundecks with direct access to the Beach Villas free-form pool.

Housed in a restored 1920 black-and-white colonial garrison, Villa Samadhi Singapore by Samadhi is located in Labrador Nature Reserve and offers boutique-style accommodation. Each accommodation option features preserved vintage centrepieces, lofty ceilings and teak furnishings with modern amenities like a flat-screen cable TV and Bluetooth-enabled speakers.

Book out the Sarang room (or 'nests' in Malay), self-contained havens with spacious outdoor and indoor plunge pools, a coveted feature for a private escape away from the CBD. The in-house restaurant, Tamarind Hill is a short stroll through the surrounding forest.

Live Tarzan's life or pretend you're retreating in the spiritual heart of Bali at Treetop Lofts, which transport you to the lush jungles of Ubud. The two unique one-bedroom lofts are hidden away in a canopy of native trees in Sentosa and perched 12 metres above the ground. Called Angsana and Tembusa, the two lofts are a nature lover's heaven. 

Each loft features a spacious living room, an en-suite bedroom adjoined to a walk-in wardrobe and private outdoor terraces. Not to mention, guests enjoy personalised butler service. If you're not a beach person, this is a great alternative.

How about a luxurious villa in Sentosa's six-star resort? Set against a lush rainforest, Capella Singapore has 38 one- or two-bedroom villas featuring an outdoor terrace with private plunge pool. Spend a leisurely weekend unwinding in the elegant and inviting space, thoughtfully-designed to complement the tropical surroundings, or take a walk on the resort's grounds and admire the intriguing historical architecture. 

There's no better time to book than now, too. Capella Singapore is offering a complimentary third-night stay if you book two consecutive nights in its One-Bedroom Garden or Palawan Villa – so you can enjoy the overseas experience without leaving Singapore.

Amara Sanctuary is all about the view, with its pools looking out over the South China Sea and a lush forest of palm trees. On top of that, the place boasts four spectacular shared pools and two restaurants, plus villas with their own pools, minibars and alfresco dining areas. If you’re looking to leave the villa (though, to be honest, we’d understand if you weren’t), Amara is also close to both Palawan Beach and Universal Studios.

Dive into the Sentosa jungle and trek through the towering trees and you’ll emerge into the gorgeous courtyard of the Siloso Beach Resort. Not too far from Siloso Beach itself, here you’ll find rooftop terraces, a fabulous outdoor pool (and, vitally, a separate one for kids) and a fitness centre. With its idyllic straw huts and lush vegetation, Siloso Beach Resort could be any number of tropical paradises.
