Travelling is one of the best things you can do in life, but if you are not able to go away, a staycation is a good alternative. From a romantic holiday, to a spur-of-the-moment weekend jaunt, or a getaway with the family – we have rounded up 8 hotels that you can consider for a staycation in Singapore.
Four Seasons Singapore
For couples who are looking for a romantic retreat, Four Seasons is the ideal place. Their luxurious rooms on the designated couples’ floor are specifically designed for an intimate experience – no kids, no screaming, no disturbance.
Special touches are meticulously put in place for a holistic experience in the couples’ rooms. Be pleasantly surprised by marshmallows and fruits, and take a nice candle-lit bath. There is also a selection of romantic music CDs and movies for a night of unwinding and indulging with each other.

The Fullerton Bay Hotel is a gorgeous 99-room property that is perched atop the waters of the Marina Bay area. Needless to say, the view is a stunning one – a panoramic one that overlooks the beautiful skyline of Singapore, including Esplanade, the Floating Platform and the iconic Marina Bay Sands.
This is a hotel that effortlessly combines excellent restaurants and bars, a super luxe design, and a good location with a terrific view.

From the Peranakan-themed façade and minimalist luxury, down to the lush pillow menu, a stay with InterContinental Singapore is akin to that of spending time outside of home that you can still call home.
Well, quite simply because the rooms are all designed to emulate a home, where there are no frills, where you feel pampered by the amenities, where no signs of commercialisation can intimidate you. We spent a night at the Shophouse Suite, and it was one staycation that left a deep impression on us (and can’t wait to return).

Hotel Fort Canning
One of our top picks is Hotel Fort Canning, a posh and modern boutique hotel located at Fort Canning Park. What I like about the hotel is that it gets the basics right: friendly staff, free wifi for all guests, and a stylish and elegant room – with a wooden and earth element – that is so comfortable. If you have an anniversary, birthday, or special occasion coming up that you want to celebrate, Hotel Fort Canning is definitely apt for a celebratory retreat. Trust me on this.
The hotel always has various promotions for weekend staycations, so make sure to check before booking.

Since Marina Bay Sands (MBS) opened its door, it has been one of the most popular destinations for visitors from all over the world. And this is by no surprise, since it stands on one of the most perfect spots in Singapore. The spacious and well-equipped rooms — facing either Gardens by the Bay or the city’s magnificent skyline — are suitable for all occasions. From shopping at the luxury boutiques to entertainments for adults and children, to dining at the top tables in town – the integrated resort has everything you need.

While there are plenty of 5 star hotels in Singapore, The Ritz-Carlton impresses with its luxe features and amenities such as meeting venues, spa, and fine dining restaurants. Greenhouse offers one of the best champagne brunches on weekends, while Summer Pavilion serves refined Cantonese fare. If you have some time to spare during the middle of the day, Chihuly Lounge is the place to go for afternoon tea.
The hotel not only has a convenient location in the heart of Marina Centre, but also boasts a terrific view of the city’s skyline.
