Sentosa Island, an island situated south of Singapore City Island mainland.
Sentosa, translating into “peace and tranquility” in the Malay language, with the first new development being completed in 2006, Sentosa Cove is the only residential enclave on Sentosa island, comprising an internationally rich and famous list of high net-worth individuals. Since it’s the only place in Singapore where non-Singaporeans are allowed to buy landed property, residents are largely made up of foreigners and expatriates with a mix of families, couples, and single professionals. The epitome of luxury living, Sentosa Cove is an aspirational address for many and a reality for few. You can choose from over 2000 high-end waterfront condominium towers and lavish waterfront bungalows, and some families choose to live off their yachts in the marina.
Sentosa Cove covers an area of 117-hectares mostly made up of reclaimed land, including 5 artificial islands namely Coral, Paradise, Treasure, Sandy, and Pearl. Most of the land is designated for residential accommodation, with the 5 islands reserved for bungalows. The residential developments are clustered in three main areas, namely the northern precinct (North Cove), the southern precinct (South Cove), and the central marina precinct.
In addition to the residential estates, there is also an exclusive marina club in Sentosa Cove called One°15 that is already in operation. The marina at One°15 has 270 wet berths including 13 for mega-yachts, making it the first in Singapore and one of the few in the world that can accommodate such large vessels, which are at least 85ft long. Complementing the residential and marina developments are a 320-room five-star hotel and a three-storey commercial complex offering a wide range of shops, food and beverage outlets, and other amenities. One°15, the proposed hotel, and the upcoming commercial complex are located in the central marina precinct, which lies between the northern and southern residential precincts.
