Ride the Singapore Cable Car and enjoy the views together. Start at Harbourfront to ride up to Mount Faber and take in the views at the top. Then re-board the cable car to travel across to Sentosa.

To make the experience more memorable, why not combine it with sunset cocktails and dinner at Dusk, where you can enjoy dining with a panoramic view.

Take a River Cruise

Enjoy the city’s skyline lit up against the night sky, on a calming river cruise along the Singapore River. Glide past iconic landmarks such as the Marina Bay Sands, Merlion, and Clarke Quay.

Relax at the Spa

Relaxing and being pampered is the perfect way to bond with your beau. Most of Singapore’s best spas have couples’ treatment rooms so you can indulge together. 

We recommend the following spas for romance:

Visit the SEA Aquarium

The SEA aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa, with its dimly lit corridors and ambient lighting, is the ideal place to spend a romantic day together.

Insider Tip: Our favourite spot is the Open Ocean aquarium at the end, where you can sit side by side and be mesmerised by the vista of sea creatures before you. Or book a table at the Ocean restaurant.

Each rotation takes around 30 minutes, and you will hopefully have the pod to yourselves to take in the views together.
