The Sentosa Development Corporation (established by the Singapore Government) was formed and incorporated on 1 September 1972 to oversee the development of Sentosa as an area for leisure tourism. The island has an area of close to 5 sq km (1.9 sq mi). It lies just half a kilometer (a quarter of a mile) away from the southern coast of the main island of Singapore. The island is easily accessible from mainland Singapore via cable car, monorail, motor vehicle bridge and pedestrian boardwalk. Once on the island visitors can easily explore by walking, using monorail, busses or chauffeur driven golf buggies.
The island is more like a small city with more than 35 quality attractions, 3, 4 and 5 star accommodation, waterways, beaches, golf courses, restaurants, bars and cafes operating
365 days of the year day and night. BHS have secured a 2300 sq m piece of land on Siloso Beach positioned directly beside Wave House and only 200m from The Mega Zip and the Skyline Luge. Siloso beach is designated as the action and excitement area of Sentosa where visitors can challenge themselves through a varied range of adventure activities.
The AJ Hackett Tower will be the tallest landmark on Siloso Beach and therefore the most visible icon on the western side of the island, while the property itself will run from the roadside directly down to the sand and water in front, giving AJ Hackett Sentosa absolute beach front.
