The Living Room
Situated in a classic colonial bungalow built in the 1880s, Capella Singapore’s Living Room once accommodated British officers of the Royal Artillery and held extravagant officers’ balls. Retired as a place to dance, it has been sensitively restored and reborn as a retreat for guests during their stay, with delightful cakes and afternoon tea arranged each day. Find a spot and enjoy the daily cultural vignettes – often workshops or activities led by our culturists and local craftsmen. Capella Culturists hold court in the Living Room, taking you on an enthralling journey between Singapore’s colonial heritage and its multicultural society that celebrates the distinct ethnic groups.
Our Capella Culturist come to life when acting in their role as chief storytellers and hotel historians. Arjay Pamintuan, part of the Culturist team, takes pride in our neighbourhood’s unique history, reading everything on the history of Blakang Mati Island, Sentosa, to chronicle and preserve the resort’s stories and colonial past.
