Inside the venue for Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un's bromantic retreat

The brochures will tell you that Capella Singapore is famous for the lush privacy of its surroundings, more than 30 acres of rolling hills and a hotel featuring two 1880 colonial buildings.

History will tell you the Capella played host to two of the world's most powerful men, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, during a landmark summit.

Imagine being a travel agent with the task of tracking down a location for these two men.

Of course the decision to use the Capella as the location for the summit between the United States and North Korea would have been made at much higher levels. Sentosa, being an island with one way in and one way out, made it much easier to secure and essentially put into lockdown for the meeting.

So what does it look like inside the venue? What were the luxurious surroundings during their meeting?

If you need any more convincing that this place is beyond standard VIP, just check out some of its online reviews.

"This is the kind of entrance that deserves to be accompanied by the strains of the legendary James Bond theme. Driving up to the neo-colonial-meets-futuristic building that is the Capella. I half expect to be handed a dirty martini upon stepping out of the car," one person wrote.

"Of course, if we were in a Bond film, this fabulous place would undoubtedly be the lavishly decked-out hideaway of the movie's villain, most likely some Eurasian drug lord or terrorist with a penchant for contemporary art."
