Sentosa Cove condos: Living that waterfront resort life

Sentosa Cove condos: Living that waterfront resort life

By Clara How

Living at Sentosa Cove has a certain cachet. If Singapore bustles with urban city life, Sentosa breathes quiet waterfront island living.

It’s got the exclusivity – the entire community is gated, which means visitors have to clear a gantry before entering the pruned green lanes of the Cove. It’s got the lush greenery and open space. And it’s got that ocean view. Living in Singapore has never looked more un-Singaporelike.

Not only does Sentosa Cove have its own privately owned homes (no gates allowed, as a kind of Stepford charm), it’s got ten condominiums wrapping around the edge of the island. They’ve all got the basics you’d expect from a luxury development: swimming pools, barbecue pits, function rooms, security, gyms – it’s all de rigueur.

We stack them up to quibble on the differences.


The condos of Sentosa North

The Oceanfront @ Sentosa Cove

You can’t miss The Oceanfront – while many of the other Cove condominiums tend to be low to mid rise, the Oceanfront’s sleek towers rise 15 storeys above ground on the northern tip of the island. If we didn’t know better, we’d be looking at a swanky building in the CBD.

You’re looking at:

264 units, which include 2, 3, 4 bedroom apartments, villas, Sky Villas and Sky Suites. Bonus: each unit has its own private lift lobby.

Can we tempt you with:

  • Both the Sky Villas and Sky Suites have a roof terrace and private pool that open up to the sky
  • Full height windows in the living and dining areas for maximum seaview potential
  • Infinity lap pool
  • Steam baths
  • Gymnasium
  • Barbecue pits
  • Laundrette
  • Cabanas

The Oceanfront condo, 281 Ocean Drive, 098527.


The Coast at Sentosa Cove

Lining the waterway is the aptly named Coast, which occupies the longest coastal stretch of Sentosa Cove. We see what they did there with the wave scalloped balcony ledges.

You’re looking at:

249 units, which include 3, 4 bedroom apartments and luxury penthouses.

  • Gymnasium
  • Landscaped pavilions
  • 41 private berths

The Coast, 276-280 Ocean Drive, 098451.


The Berth by the Cove

This condominium coined its name by being the first development to offer private berths for residents (although it can no longer lay claim to being the only one). Not content with having proximity to the sea, water features on the compounds include a fountain court and cascading waterfalls.

The Residences at W Sentosa

Literally at the doorstep is Quayside Isle, a boardwalk of shops and restaurants (no exaggeration here – cross the road and you’re there). Sure, it might not be as secluded as some of the other developments, but in terms of convenience this would be our pick.
