Tanjong Beach Club offers an idyllic escape from the daily bustle of downtown Singapore with its location on a secluded beach cove on the south coast of Senstosa Island. Although only a short distance from the central business district of Singapore, the transformation of environs is complete- with a white sand beach on a small bay surrounded by verdant tropical rain forest, tall palm trees lining the beach front- the location could easily be mistaken for a tropical resort island. Tanjong Beach Club have created a haven of stylish beachfront dining, all-day relaxation by the pool or beach, and refreshing drinks served up by the Beach Bar.
The restaurant is housed is a contemporary building overlooking the beach- and with 6 metre high ceilings and full glass facade- the interiors are bathed in natural daylight and cooling seabreezes. Serving a modern “coastal” styling of cuisine with an emphasis on grilled fresh seafood, the dining experience is laid-back yet sophisticated. Outdoors, the facilities include a 20 metre infinity pool and deck, a variety of day beds, deck chairs and lounges for relaxation, and the covered Beach Bar with further seating at tables. And not forgetting the beach and sea- with a diverse range of activities available- beach volleyball, beer pong, etc.. Sunsets on the beach front are spectacular- best viewed from the Beach Bar with cocktail in hand. The beach parties at Tanjong Beach Club are legendary- Smack My Beach Up is held every Sunday, and Full Steam Ahead, a massive full moon party is held three times a year- attracting crowds of party goers in the thousands. Events details are posted to the Facebook Page.
The Tanjong Beach Club was created in a collaboration between beach loving Australian brothers, Christian and Julian Tan, and Singapore-based hospitality group The Lo & Behold Group – whose portfolio of distinctive Singapore venues include Loof, The White Rabbit , OverEasy and Extra Virgin Pizza.
