Can’t get away for the weekend because there is no one to take care of your dog? Or do you just really need a short escape from the daily grind – even if it meant just for one night?
That is when you seek a respite within Singapore itself. And it is what we all call a “staycation”. For the uninitiated, the term might baffle a little, but it really means having a holiday outside of your house, but still within Home. More often than not, a staycation is a night’s stay at a lovely hotel, and it is one that is undisturbed and pampering all the same.
Hotel options in Singapore are aplenty, and whatever your budget is, there will be something that fits the bill. But budget for such “mini holidays” is a rising concern, and though we’d love to call The Westin Singapore home for a night, not everyone can afford to do that regularly.
But what if we told you there are actually a handful of staycation options in Singapore that are under S$300 per night? Yes, you heard us right. Here is the list you should totally bookmark. However, do note that hotel rates fluctuate every so often and different seasons call for different rates. And what we have here is accumulated based on our various research periods and occasional deals, so it does not speak for the hotel’s rates entirely. Be sure to check out the various properties’ social media pages for flash deals like we did!
Here are 20 hotels in Singapore under S$300 where you can go for a staycation at.

An oasis within the urban jungle; that’s what we’d like to think of Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore.

Just like food and fashion, we have our favourite brands when it comes to hotels too, and we know those names are the ones that we can count on and turn to whenever we need a good night’s sleep.
Hyatt is definitely on our list, and no matter which part of the world we are at, it is one brand that we can resonate with. The Hyatt brand is well-received and ever popular for their consistency in delivering the best experience to their esteemed guests.
We are not going to be overly fancy describing our stay at Grand Hyatt Singapore, because just like the brand prides itself, the experience is nothing but an honest and sincere one; no frills, just a classy execution for your enjoyment. Grand Hyatt Singapore has also just launched its WEEKEND 24 – an exclusive staycation package that lets you check-in at any time, and check-out one full day (24 hrs) later.
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.
We have stayed at several hotels in Singapore, and InterContinental Singapore is one of our favourite experiences. Where do we even begin? 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.
And how does this work?
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).
Right now, InterContinental Singapore is offering a weekend staycation package (S$255++/night) – for its deluxe rooms – that is specially designed for locals. Below, we will share more about what you can look forward to.
What attributes to a pleasant hotel stay? The lush interior and the oh-so-comfy bed? The in-house fragrance and the overall cleanliness? Personalised and impeccable service? The view, or the F&B options? The proximity to the main areas of Singapore?
Whatever you are looking for, The Fullerton Bay Hotel probably has them all covered. We all have our favourite brands, and hotels are no exception. The Fullerton brand is in our list, and when we were invited for a one-night stay at one of the best hotels in Singapore, it was with much delight and excitement that we packed our bags and checked in to the 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.
