Lying between Singapore and Malaysia, Pulau Ubin is one of the few parts of the country to have escaped the large-scale urban development the rest of the country is known for. The name of the island, meaning "Granite Island" in Malay, dates back to a time when the local granite quarries were the area's main financial resource, though these quarries have since returned to their natural state. The island's main draw these days is its stunning natural beauty and unspoilt isolation; this is one of the last places in Singapore that still boasts a kampong or traditional village, the local mangrove forests offer plentiful opportunities for exploration, while the wildlife at Chek Jawa is simply spectacular.
Hop a boat from Changi Beach on the east side of Singapore's main island to get to Pulau Ubin and, once here, rent a bike. This is the best way to get around the island and make the most of your time. Cycle to the local township for lunch and a chat with the locals, or simply kick back with a drink and soak in the serene surroundings.
Chek Jawa is the most popular tourist site on the island. These natural wetlands are home to a variety of local wildlife including octopus and the utterly strange sea hare. Wander through the mangrove forests or along the beach, making sure to take the time to climb some of the numerous observation towers scattered around the area for glorious views of the island itself and across to Singapore city.
Pulau Ubin is easy to reach via the many boats operating from Changi Beach on the main island during daylight hours. Simply arrive at the departure point, where boats will leave each time there are more than 10 travellers aboard. If you want to stay in Pulau Ubin overnight, there is accommodation available. There are also plentiful places to camp, which is how most visitors spend a night on the island.
It was perfect ! The facilities were amazing . The room was clean felt like home.
Stayed 1 night. Walkable distaste to arab district. Nice stay for one person. Since the room to small. But overall I like this hotel.
Hotel staff was great and helpful. The restaurant at the hotel, Prego, was really good!
The property was under refit. Our room was ordinary. It’s hard to give a review given the circumstances. The door staff were friendly and helpful.
Hallway smells cigarette smoke although we booked for a non smoking room. Right getting off the elevators smells really bad
Good location, and wide range of facilities. Stayed too short to use them all. Hope to spend more time in near future.
