Sentosa Island offers many opportunities to explore the natural environment of Singapore. It gives you a sense of what life was like before the city developed into a sprawling modern metropolis.
In line with our commitment to biodiversity conservation, the group launched SANCTUARY, Shangri-La's Care for Nature Project.
Standing near the entrance of the resort is Singapore's largest tree, measuring 27 metres in height and 10.2 metres in girth. Recognised by Singapore's National Parks Board as a heritage tree, it is believed that British soldiers planted the Angsana tree in 1885, when they settled at Fort Siloso during the pre-war period.
A tree lightning conductor has been installed to protect the old tree, trees replanted to reinstate its natural habitat, and during the resort's large-scale renovation in 2010, efforts were made to avoid harm to the tree.
This tree continues to provide shade for guests along the leafy boulevard leading up to the resort's lobby, and the resort's gardeners carefully look after it.
You may begin your exploration with the Nature Walk, which is landscaped with plants representative of this tropical region.
A garden tour with the resort’s Mr Green Fingers is also available on Mondays and Thursdays from 10am.
