Breakfast in bed at The Residences at W Singapore, Sentosa

The Residences at W looks awesome! Why?

  • Apparently, shared concierge services with the luxury W Hotel
  • Next to Sentosa Cove arrival plaza (North Cove)
  • Beside Retail & F&B on Sentosa Island
  • View of marina
  • Beside One Degree 15 Marina Club

Now the only thing missing is its own beach front!

The Residences at W is located next to the luxury W hotel, along the northern cove.

The W Hotel is expected to be opening in 2012.

Gosh. Imagine living in a condo (next to a hotel) with all your hotel concierge/room services plus buggy drivers, pool attendants, security guards and berthing facilities (34 berths, ~$3,000 a year)! While you probably will pay through your nose for hotel standard room service breakfast, if you can live there you sure can afford it.

Also, the Hotel & Residences' Clubhouse will be linked through a basement connection. Finally monthly maintainence fees are going somewhere useful (anyone knows how much?).

Well sorry we got caught up in all of that, now lets get to the details:

Tenure: 99 years with effect from 31 Oct 2006
District: 4
Developer: Cityview Place Holdings Pte Ltd (City Development Limited)
Site Area: ~23,263.40 sqm / 250,407 sqft
Plot Ratio: 1.6
Estimated TOP: 30 Oct 2012
Blocks: 7

Units: 244 total, 2BR(42), 3BR(86), 4BR(66), PH(34)

Notable Facilities:
  • Concierge Services (W Hotel)
  • Clubhouse (linked to hotel?)
  • Gym
  • Jacuzzi
  • Steam bath
  • BBQ
  • Pool
  • Berths

~Unit Sizes:

  • 2BR (1,227 and 1,292 sqft)
  • 3BR (1,625 and 2,616 sqft)
  • 4BR (2,067 and 2,486 sqft)
  • PH various (2,217 and 6,297 sqft)

The 2BR apartments seem yummy, although they are sized more like standard 3BR. The biggest Penthouse is touted to have 5 bedrooms and is huge at 6,297 sqft. FYI it seems like there is only Normal Progressive Payment, and the payment schedule is already halfway into itself.

So how? Want something really different in Singapore? Then check out the W Residences! And if you are going to rattle on about the negatives living in a 'condotel' *yawn* we heard it all before already!!!
