Just when you thought your children have done it all and seen it all on Sentosa Island, along comes Nestopia, a unique open-air play space with 17 play sections, located next to casual Italian eatery, Trapizza.
Featuring netted obstacle courses connecting three giant nests, and two of the longest slides on Sentosa Island, Nestopia – which spans more than 470 square metres – brings to life the story of a flock of legendary birds that build homes using ropes, branches, leaves and a touch of magic.
Open to the public with ticketed entry, it is part of Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa, one of most family-friendly hotels in Singapore.

Nestled amongst lush greenery on Siloso Beach, Nestopia has been welcoming young explorers aged 5 and above since 1 February 2019.
Soaring up to a height of 7.5 metres, the three nests that make up Nestopia offer a bird’s-eye view of the South China Sea and the surrounding Siloso Beach precinct.
A real sight to behold, Nestopia is an open-air playground like nothing you’ve ever laid eyes on, what with its various climbing obstacles, suspended bridges, mazes, and slides. If looking at it doesn’t take your breath away, well, conquering it will!
As you make your way to the top – overcoming challenge after challenge – you will tap on and hone a combination of motor skills including strength, balance, spatial awareness, agility, and of course, problem solving skills.
And finally, your reward at the end of it all – besides a great sense of achievement – is a ride down one of the longest and most thrilling tube slides on Sentosa!
