If you have a couple of young children with lots of energy, we highly recommend staying at Oasia Resort Sentosa and request for their Courtyard Premier Suite. When you’re booking the suite, you can request for the courtyard to be set up for children and the team can place games as well as a tepee for children to ‘camp’. It’s the perfect space where you have a little bit of the outside, inside. If you have a dog, then bring your furkid along too! Then the whole family will be complete and have a holiday together!

They have morning yoga sessions that you can enjoy and fret not, every room comes with a yoga mat so you don’t need to bring one. If you’d like, there are also wellness workshops at the spa that you can sign up for yourself and your child to better understand how to pamper yourself using sustainable ingredients.
