Summerhouse Beach Club is located along Siloso Beach at Skypark Sentosa by AJ Hackett, where you can find bungee-jumping and giant swing facilities. Subsidized by our Sentosa Fun Pass tokens, my husband and I planned to grab an early dinner here before checking out the Eevee Dance Parade later that evening!
The thing about these tokens is that, as with most token exchange systems, devaluation is a very real risk, which was what happened here. Just a few months before, the exchange rate was 15 tokens for $20 dining credit. Alas, by the time we visited, these same 15 tokens were only worth $15 dining credit. I guess the saving grace was that we got these tokens at a heavily discounted rate (285 tokens for $51), so that removed much of the sting from the devaluation.
- Our order:
- Skypark signature beef burger ($20++)
- Fish and chips ($18++)
- Spent: SGD$8.05 (45 tokens for $45 dining credit)
What’s really nice about this place is the fact that it is situated right up on the beachfront, where you can enjoy sweeping views of the sea and feel the wind in your hair, maybe even admire the glorious sunset skies if it isn’t too cloudy.
There are seats under a tentage further inland or lounge chairs under the cabanas nearer to the shore to choose from, the latter being the best front row seats to watch brave souls bungee-jump or ride the giant swing. Do expect your time here to be intermittently peppered with bloodcurdling shouts and screams from above.
Looking at the menu that comprised mainly burgers and pizzas, I thought the food here would taste like reheated bar food that’s usually bland and hardened. Surprisingly, it was better than expected. Our signature beef burger and fish and chips were moist and juicy, though a little on the salty side. Unfortunately, service was a touch-and-go affair and highly perfunctory, as most staff did no more than fulfil the basic requests. No smiles, no greetings, but well, they did get the job done.
My overall rating of the experience: 3 out of 5 stars. We appreciated the chill vibes dining here at the beach with food that tasted pretty okay. It was also an interesting and up-close vantage point from which to watch daredevils (or poor peer-pressured folks) take their bungee-jumping or giant-swinging leaps of faith. In terms of service, it was cold but functional, and it was rather difficult to get their attention on a few occasions. Prices were quite expensive given the quality of the food we got but this is generally the case for most dining options at Sentosa. Indeed, what was most memorable here was being able to catch the beautiful setting sun over the horizon (:
