Almost everyone at one time or another has dreamed of getting away to a true paradise or Shangri-La. Tourists need look no further because there is a Shangri-La and it is found in Singapore at the Rasa Sentosa Resort and Spa.

The Changi International Airport is just a 30 minute drive from the resort. Guests can arrange to be picked up by a hotel limousine or whisked to the resort by subway, taxi or the local mass rapid transit system.

Upon arrival at the resort, guests will be enchanted with the beautiful outdoor setting of the resort, along with the rooms and suites that complement their lush outdoor surroundings. Each room has their own private balcony with views of the South China Sea, the resort pool, garden or nearby tropical hills. Both private adult-only rooms are available for honeymooners and larger accommodations for families are available as well.

Wedding planners are available at the resort to ensure a memorable celebration for the couple and their family members and friends.
