The island was renamed Sentosa, Malay for "peace and tranquility," in 1970 following a competition to come up with a new moniker. Its previous name was Pulau Belakang Mati, meaning "Island After Death."

Trump and Kim’s summit is scheduled for 9 a.m. local time June 12 (9 p.m. ET June 11), after it was thrown into uncertainty when Trump canceled it, before negotiations put it back on track.

On Tuesday evening, workers were painting a fresh coat on the façade, extra security was in place and red carpets were being rolled out at the hotel’s two entrances.

Trump hopes to secure a nuclear deal with North Korea, seeking for Kim to give up his nuclear program, though he stressed last week that the process would likely take longer than a single meeting.

Officials had also considered the Shangri-La Hotel, which hosts an annual international security summit and was the venue for a 2015 meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou.

Trump is expected to stay at that hotel, which is near a major shopping district and less secluded than the island facility chosen for his meeting with Kim.
