Sentosa Island

Before it was known as Sentosa, this island just off Singapore’s southern coast was a British military fortress. After the Japanese Occupation in World War II, Singapore returned to British rule, and the island was renamed “Sentosa” which translates to “peace and tranquility.”

Over the course of its remarkable history, Sentosa has transformed into a beloved island resort, best known for its beaches, luxury hotels and thrilling attractions.
