Asia's most exclusive and coveted oceanfront residential community and the only true seafront residential property in Singapore. Offers 118 hectares of an integrated oceanfront tropic lifestyle. Sentosa Cove is a residential enclave in the East of Sentosa Island in Singapore. When fully developed, Sentosa Cove will have 10,000 residents in 2,500 up-market homes as well as a boating marina for 240 yachts, a quayside village and some commercial units. It will also be the first time that non-Singaporeans are able to purchase landed properties in Singapore
Sentosa Cove is divided into two main areas, the North Cove, and the South Cove. Each cove comprises of both bungalow and condominium residential plots, with most units configured to either face the artificially-created sheltered waterways, or the open sea. Straddling between the two is a planned commercial area, known as the Quayside Collection, which includes a hotel and a marina.
The North Cove has three artificial islands called Coral Island, Paradise Island and Treasure Island, all of which are surrounded by an artificial marina enclosed by an outer ring of reclaimed land. Collectively, the North Cove will have 1,528 residential units comprising of 214 bungalows, 30 terraced houses, and 1,284 condominium units.
In the North Cove, there are five condominium sites, all were successfully sold to private developers. The Berth by the Cove by Ho Bee Group, The Azure by Centrepoint Homes, and The Oceanfront @ Sentosa Cove by City Developments Limited each held very successful sales campaigns, with units being booked very rapidly even before their respective launches. The condominium at the Baywater Collection, were expected to be launched soon. The last condominium parcel called the Marina Collection was recently sold at a record price of $816 psf. There are also two significant sites for landed housing, namely the Hillside Collection, and the Lakefront Collection.
Bungalow plots in the South Cove were launched only in the second half of 2006 after the successful sale of most plots in the North Cove, with an eventual total of 156 units. Bungalow plots at the South Cove drew a top bid of $1,039 psf at a recent high-profile auction conducted by Christie Great Estates. Another 816 condominium units in four sites are also to be sold, for a total of 972 homes in the South Cove. Demand for these homes is expected to be higher than in the north due to the better sea views offered. With a geographic configuration similar to the north, it also has a sheltered waterway with two artificial islands (Pearl Island and Sandy Island).
Sentosa Island Update - September 2006. Resort Island's $8b Revamp Ahead of Schedule
Sentosa achieves 5.2-million record visitors & rolls out slew of new attractions as investor confidence soars Singapore, September 2006: Sentosa Island has the special distinction of being a one-stop tourist destination south of Singapore with a unique blend of leisure and recreational facilities including family attractions, sea sports, golf courses and hotel accommodation. Just 15 minutes away from Singapore’s shopping precinct, the island resort is on its way to becoming a premier leisure destination for local residents and a world-class tourist destination for overseas visitors.
Strategically, Sentosa, its core residential development called Sentosa Cove and the Southern Islands are part of the Sentosa-HarbourFront precinct at the Southern tip of Singapore which also includes Singapore’s only cableway system and Singapore Cruise Centre. In 2002, Sentosa embarked on a strategic long-term plan to rejuvenate the Island, Sentosa Cove and the Southern Islands to provide a more memorable experience to its visitors. The plan is now in its final phase with a new family-themed resort coming on stream and most of the planned developments now in place to transform Sentosa into one of Asia’s top family destinations. Over the next few years, these developments will be completed in a phased manner.
With the completion of Sentosa Island’s redevelopment plan, this 500-hectare resort island expects to annually generate more than S$1 billion in revenue by the year 2010.
Sentosa Island: The S$3 billion redevelopment plan, with inputs from a panel of international and local experts, is based on creating different physical clusters on the island that focus specific visitor needs. The plan also includes development of infrastructure to make the island more integrated and easily accessible for day trippers and over-night guests.
One such major project is Sentosa Express, a S$140 million light rail system that will seamlessly link Sentosa Island to the North-East Line at HarbourFront Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station, bringing visitors directly into the island’s critical public zones in less than four minutes when it operates by end of 2006. A northern and southern arrival plaza with facilities such as underground car parks combined with efficient internal transport will ensure comfortable and convenient connections between attractions and different parts of the island.
Sentosa is redefined into different distinct zones with three Sentosa Express stations on the island and by way of efficient, linear public mover systems employed to transport people to different parts of Sentosa:
Waterfront Station: The northern part of the island will feature the 49-hectare family-themed resort which includes a theme park, casino, accommodation, restaurants and other facilities.
Imbiah Station: Sentosa’s green spine with its unique heritage buildings and secondary forest houses the Tourism Academy, a luxurious all-villa resort called The Knolls, a boutique resort called Amara Sentosa, a mid-tier resort called Siloso Beach Resort and a small health spa getaway. Also within this zone is the Imbiah Lookout attractions cluster that provides entertainment for the entire family featuring a host of visitor attractions including the cable car, Carlsberg Sky Tower, Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom, Sentosa Luge, Images of Singapore, Merlion, Sentosa Herb & Spice Garden and Sentosa 4D Magix.
Beach Station: The beach precinct of Sentosa boasts Singapore’s three most pristine beaches: the revitalised high energy Siloso Beach, the family-friendly Palawan Beach and the more tranquil Tanjong Beach. The beach arrival plaza housing this station with underground car parking facilities serves this zone. A variety of food, beverage, retail outlets as well as accommodation and leisure amenities abound along this 3.2km stretch of beach.
Family-themed Resort: A Family-themed Resort cum casino will be developed at Sentosa. To be built at a private projected investment of S$3 billion, the expanded resort concept including a theme park is targeted to be complete by 2009.
Sentosa Cove:The S$4 billion Sentosa Cove is arguably the most coveted residential and commercial development in Asia and is currently the only oceanfront residence available in Singapore. Sentosa Cove - blending an exclusive residential, retail, resort and marina amenities - offers 117 hectares of an integrated oceanfront tropic lifestyle resort for the region. When fully developed by 2008, Sentosa Cove will have some 10,000 residents in 2,500 up-market homes as well as a boating marina for 200 yachts, a quayside village and some commercial units.
With the local government allowing foreign ownership of its prestigious waterfront residential landed properties, Sentosa Cove is now poised to be a truly global community. It will be the first time that non-Singaporeans are able to purchase landed properties in Singapore. More than 50 per cent of homes at the Cove have already been sold.
Southern Islands: The Southern Islands comprise of Kusu, Lazarus, Seringat, Sisters and St. John’s and lie just one kilometre off Sentosa. The Islands encompass 334 hectares of natural flora and fauna. Sentosa oversees the maintenance of these offshore islands south of Singapore. Under the $1 billion redevelopment plans for these Islands, residential, resort, and entertainment facilities will emerge. This could include a range of high-end entertainment venues, theatres, exclusive restaurants, health spas, resorts, themed attractions and conference facilities. The islands of Pulau Seringat, Lazarus and St. John’s island which were isolated islands in the past are now joined together to form one new “critical mass” island destination with some of the longest and best beaches in Singapore. These developments will complement the attractions and facilities on Sentosa.
The Southern Islands are poised to attract international talent and investments and contribute to Singapore’s tourism industry and economic growth.
HarbourFront Development: HarbourFront Development is an important part of the Sentosa-HarbourFront precinct as an integrated leisure destination on Singapore’s southern tip. The HarbourFront precinct - a landmark development that comprises offices, cruise and ferry terminals, Singapore's only cableway system, a multi-concept entertainment hub housed in a heritage building as well as Singapore's largest retail and lifestyle mall called VivoCity - is currently undergoing redevelopment. It spans 24 hectares and lies along Singapore's southern waterfront, overlooking Sentosa island resort and the sea. Located on prime waterfront land at the foothills of Mount Faber, it is poised to attract more than 30 million visitors annually, including passengers at the Singapore Cruise Centre. By end 2006, the S$2-billion HarbourFront Development will emerge as Singapore's new world-class waterfront business and lifestyle hub.
