Singapore is a popular destination for tourists, and our amenities have evolved so much that we are put on the world map for many remarkable and award-winning products. And when it comes to seeking shelter when you travel to Singapore, we have no lack of hotels for you to take your pick. From world-class brands to Singapore-only properties, you are sure to have an enjoyable stay – literally.
Sometimes, we are in the mood for something quirky, but quality never goes out of style, and that is why we have our pool of favourites that we always turn to when in doubt. Even as Singaporeans, we believe in escaping to a pleasant environment apart from home – a place that meets all our needs, and to recharge our souls.
That is when we checked out The Westin Singapore lately, and the stay was one to deepen our loyalty to the Starwood baby. You know, familiarity is really endearing, always and forever. It is the assurance that we can always count on The Westin team to give us a holistic stay-out experience.
The Westin Singapore has a Weekend Escape staycation package that is specially for Singapore residents. If you are planning a surprise for your loved ones, here are some of the things that we love about The Westin Singapore.
1. THE TEAM AT THE WESTIN SINGAPORE
The frontline staff are the first points of contact, and every one we met welcomed us with open arms. The check-in process was smooth, and we were given a comprehensive briefing on what is included and what is not.
2. AN ECO-FRIENDLY HOTEL
The Westin Singapore takes this initiative very seriously, because they mean it when they say they love our Earth.
For example, air-conditioners are switched off when a guest leaves his room. In addition, when you stay at any one of the 56 green rooms that are located on levels 38 and 39, look out for a meter on the left side of your in-room TV. There, it gives you an overview of your electric and water consumption, and juxtaposes your consumption to that of an average hotel guest’s, so as to keep you informed and aware of how green you are.
3. HAVE A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP ON THE HEAVENLY BED
In all their 305 rooms and suites, The Westin Singapore will promise nothing but a good night’s rest – on their signature Westin Heavenly Bed, of course. You know what? The name says it all and you really have to lie on one to truly experience the amazing pillow-top mattress which cradles and contours to the body for complete comfort, and as The Westin promises, “Dream away in The Westin Heavenly Bed so you can meet the challenges of the day head-on.”
4. LUXE CONTEMPORARY INTERIOR
We all love to feel like royalty, don’t we? And if we could retreat to a floor-to-ceiling sanctuary that speaks of nothing but luxe and elegance, why not? We have visited The Westin in many countries, and while they are generally a five-star brand, some older properties are planning for facelifts. But this one in Singapore is spanking new and don’t we all agree there is a certain distinct scent in new properties?
We love how everything is so polished and neat, and the contemporary European interior sets our hearts aflutter.
5. A MAGNIFICENT BAY VIEW
Of course, being perched atop Asia Square means on top of fresher air, you have a better view of your surrounding, too. Every room enjoys a different view, but just be sure to draw your curtains when you are taking a bubble bath in the tub that faces the city.
6. WESTIN INFINITY POOL – ONE OF THE BEST SWIMMING POOLS IN SINGAPORE
The gorgeous infinity pool alone is enough reason for you to stay at The Westin Singapore.
7. PAMPER YOURSELF WITH A SPA AT HEAVENLY SPA BY WESTIN™
For those who have experienced the heavenly treatments at Westin Spas around the world, rejoice! Because we no longer have to fly overseas for the renowned spa experience.

8. LATE CHECKOUT POLICY FOR LOCALS
For locals who are doing a staycation, rejoice for you get to laze in bed longer! Most hotels put us through the silly rush of checking out by 11am, but The Westin Singapore has this special privilege just for us locals. Now, enjoy a hearty lunch at Seasonal Tastes or Cook & Brew before leaving!
