Well when we say a visit to Sentosa Island, I think this was really all the girls had in mind - "Welcome to Battlestar Galactica". Sentosa Island, also known as Sentosa, is an island located at the Central Region, Singapore. It was once used as a British military base and a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp. In 1972, the island was renamed Sentosa and was planned to be a popular tourist destination. It is now home to a popular resort that receives more than twenty million visitors per year. Attractions include a 2 km (1.2 mi) long sheltered beach, Fort Siloso, two golf courses, the Merlion, 14 hotels, and the Resorts World Sentosa, which features the Universal Studios Singapore theme park and one of Singapore's two casinos. The name Sentosa translates as "peace and tranquility" in Malay, which was in turn derived from the Sanskrit term Santosha, meaning "contentment, satisfaction". Sentosa was formerly known as Pulau Blakang Mati which in Malay means the "Island of Death Behind".
