About Sentosa

In 1827, it was fortified to serve the defense purpose. But rapid growth of harbor led to the concern of over protecting the coal stocks. And thus, Fort Siloso, Fort Serapong, Fort Connaught and the Mount Imbiah Battery were set up. By 1930, Sentosa Island was extensively fortified. Now, the actual story begins that form the most important part of the history of Sentosa Island.It must be remembered that Sentosa Island was a British military fortress during the second world war. Artillery guns were kept in Fort Siloso and a brilliant plan was chalked out to protect the island from Japanese invaders. British believed that the sea in the south would guard the island. But, unexpectedly, Japanese sounded more intelligent when they invaded Singapore from the north.

Sentosa, which translates to peace and tranquility in Malay, is a popular island resort in Singapore, visited by some five million people a year.Attractions include a two-kilometre long sheltered beach, Fort Siloso, two golf courses and two five-star hotels, and the Resorts World Sentosa, featuring the theme park Universal Studios Singapore.
