When it comes to planning a multigenerational holiday, it’s always challenging to find a destination that will satisfy everyone’s interests and palates. Where can they go that will have something for everyone, from grandparents to toddlers?

Sentosa’s tantalising array of culinary experiences – whether it’s beachside drinks with sweeping views of the South China Sea, a fusion meal overlooking a scenic marina, or a romantic dinner above the skyline – are what make this island a perfect paradise for every type of traveller.

For the grandparents: Upscale experiential dining for milestone celebrations

As Sentosa marks its Golden Jubilee in 2022, a pair of grandparents is too, celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary with a day of gourmet meals. Their celebrations begin at Cassia, a contemporary Chinese restaurant in the colonial-era Capella Singapore. The restaurant’s focus on inventive Cantonese dishes, fine service, and a sleek design that draws inspiration from China’s historic spice routes makes this venue befitting for milestone celebrations.

An out-of-the-world dining experience awaits them at the Ocean Restaurant in Resorts World Sentosa, where the couple is surrounded by the wonders of the sea, from its culinary offerings to its ambience. This underwater restaurant serves up fresh seafood for lunch and dinner sourced from eco-friendly fisheries, ensuring that every morsel is both delectable and sustainable. While they’re savouring their dishes, they get to admire the majesty of manta rays, sharks and 40,000 marine animals swimming past the aquarium’s floor-to-ceiling windows.

Mount Faber’s Cable Car Sky Dining, accessible via a short ride from any cable car stations in Sentosa, offers a unique setting for a private romantic dinner to round off anniversary celebrations. Couples can choose from four themed cabin menus — Destination-Themed Cabin, Singapore Flavours Cabin, Sky-High Bento Cabin and Champagne Cabin — before they set off in their own private cable car ride, taking in panoramic views of Sentosa’s glittering lights against the night sky while enjoying their multi-course meal.

What about the adult family members looking for a day of relaxation and fun?

Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa’s Sunday Brunch at Kwee Zeen is the undisputed choice among the ladies. The buffet’s lavish array of lobsters, oysters, foie gras, caviar and free-flow champagne along with its luxurious décor makes one feel like they are dining as royalty.

For the rest of the day, the ladies explore Quayside Isle’s restaurants that line the picturesque quay in Sentosa Cove, ranging from Mediterranean cuisine at Mykonos on the Bay to Spanish cuisine at Sabio by the Sea.

The men, meanwhile, can be found spending the entire day at Sentosa Golf Club. Some break off from the group to play golf and the others hang out at Panamericana sipping on whiskies, while admiring the restaurant’s sweeping ocean views from its veranda. Not only does the restaurant house a fully stocked bar, but it also boasts a farm-to-fire culinary concept, specialising in grilled, roasted and charred meats.

For the young families: A one-stop food hall

The millennial parents of the family and their gaggle of young kids head out for a full day of high-octane activities in the cluster of attractions at Imbiah Lookout starting with SkyHelix Sentosa. They enjoy a light breakfast of pastries, fruit bowls and juices as they ascend the 35m tall rotating aerial attraction that offers 360° views of Sentosa and the developing Greater Southern Waterfront.

With a day of non-stop action in the pipeline comprising Sentosa 4D Adventureland, Mega Adventure Park, and the Luge, the parents take a short cable car ride from Imbiah Cable Car Station to the Siloso Point Cable Car station where a short walk brings them to the Southside Interim Market. This open concept food hall by the waterside houses six different dining concepts to satisfy families who like to have a taste of everything — from burgers and pizzas to comfort French food and craft beers. Food concepts are changed once every six months to ensure that culinary offerings are always kept fresh for guests.

For the party people: Beach bar hopping till you drop

The party-loving group of Millennial and Gen Z travellers are in for a treat with Sentosa’s numerous beachfront restaurants and bars. The vibes differ from one establishment to the next, offering the perfect opportunity to bar hop along Sentosa’s coastline.

Tanjong Beach Club is lauded as one of the world’s best beach clubs. Coastal beach bites from around the world are the focus here, such as lobster rolls, beer-battered fish & chips, crab linguine and more, served up in a laidback beach setting designed to resemble seaside homes. Diners can choose between dining indoors next to the pool or outdoors on a pristine stretch of sand.

Beach goers will find themselves transported to Hawaii at Ola Beach Club, where Hawaiian-inspired food and cocktails are served up while people get their surf on with the many water sports activities this place offers. Most of its seating is outdoors near the water’s edge where guests can soak up the sun and enjoy the cool ocean breeze.

Young revellers can also mingle among like-minded individuals at Rumours Beach Club that houses three swimming pools and designated areas for private parties. This club is particularly popular among local influencers, thanks to its vibrant atmosphere and booming party scene, made even more hopping with its resident DJ. This beach club boasts an extensive menu comprising bar bites, salads, pizzas, BBQ-ed seafood, burgers, pastas and desserts.
