Cable Car Sentosa Getaway


I was recently invited for a weekend staycaytion at The Outpost Hotel in Sentosa, courtesy of One Faber Group, as part of its 45th anniversary experience!

I bet most people are not aware that the cable car linking Harbourfront and Sentosa has its operations since 1974! Since then it has served close to 57 million riders, which is pretty amazing if you think about it. The red cable car shown in my photo above was actually the First Generation cable car, which was then upgraded to the black one, and finally today's Fourth Gen cable car which features 360 floor to ceiling windows for the best views of Singapore.

I took the cable car during the golden hour, and the view was really quite magical as the sun bathed the waters with a glow.

I started my day off at Arbora, known for its beautiful views and casual dining concept. I tried the Lobster Napoli - which features a half lobster in tomato-based sauce, while my friend Phoebe had the Duck & Mushroom Ragout.

The pasta for both was cooked al dente, and I really enjoyed my Lobster Napoli, as the lobster meat was firm and succulent and went really well with the sauce.

Arbora is set amongst the lush greenery of Mt Faber Park and is known for its Bell of Happiness and Rainbow Steps, making it popular amongst couples even for wedding photography! When we were dining there, there were 2 couples taking wedding photography there.

After a late lunch, we took the cable car back to Sentosa to freshen up at the hotel. The cable car takes you from Mt Faber, where you go over the lush green of Mt Faber Park and to the open seas towards Sentosa. At 93m height, there's really no better vantage point to soak all the views in!


For dinner, we head back to Mount Faber to try out Arbora's sister restaurant Dusk.
The restaurant is aptly named, as it offers a perfect view for sunset over the coast - with all the fairy lights and twinkling lights in the distance, Dusk is really popular amongst couples as well (we spotted 3 couples celebrating their anniversaries on that night alone!)

Dusk serves out tapas style dishes as well as mains, which I appreciated given our late lunch. We had 2 tapas and a salad to share. I really liked the Beef Cheek with Port Wine Demi Glaze - The beef cheek was slow cooked to soak in its juices and also took in all the flavor of the port wine. It also came with mashed potatoes which made it a great dish all around!

I was pleasantly surprised at how affordable the drinks were! Happy hour is from 4-8pm, and all wines, spirits went at $9/ glass so we both had 2 drinks each. Service was also very attentive and prompt, and diners could also ride the Cable Car to Sentosa for just SGD5 - No wonder this restaurant was a winner with couples!

As part of #SGCableCar45, you can pick up the Explorer Passport which will guide you to activities at each Cable Car station. The passport also includes a guide for night activities to enjoy at Faber Peak as well as F&B discounts.

As part of the celebrations, One Faber Group is also holding a social media contest - simply ride on the cable car, and take your best shot and #SGCableCar45 to win a staycay at Village Hotel! 


The next morning at The Outpost Hotel, I took advantage of the Adults Only pool that is built in the style of Pamukale's cascading chalk pools to relax. The infinity pool overlooks the sea and also came with a side bar!

The Outpost Hotel is newly renovated and opened since April 2019, and boasts itself as an adults only hotel. I especially liked that upon checkin, we were offered the option to choose up to 5 food items for our minibar, complimentary! That, and of course no screaming kids meant a great hotel for a couple weekend getaway.

Breakfast was a full spread at Village Hotel, or you could choose to take a buggy to the beach, to have breakfast by the beach at Ola Beach Club. Despite a slightly smaller room size, the Outpost makes up for it with modern amenities and facilities, as well as its glorious infinity pool.

Thank you One Faber Group for the experience
