Travelling with children has its fair share of rewards—fun, bonding and exposure. But let’s be real, young children can sometimes be a handful. They are fickle beings that lack the physical capacity of us adults and more often than not, have the tendency to throw tantrums when they’re tired or disinterested.
With the holidays or long weekend fast approaching, you might be thinking of taking your family somewhere special—preferably to a place filled with fun activities for kids. Well, if you want to do away with the hassle of planning but still fancy a cheeky holiday away from the confines of home, then perhaps a staycation should do the trick.
Forget the stresses of airports, immigration and all that jazz, here is our list of 12 kids-friendly hotels in Singapore that your family (especially your kids) will love.
In the blink of an eye, 2018 is coming to an end and we are fast approaching the new year. For many of us, this is the period to go on holiday trips with family and friends for a respite from our fast-paced life and a #treatyoself getaway.

If you’re strapped for cash but looking for some good r&r, staycations are your next best thing. Here are 10 affordable hotels in Singapore with prices starting from as low S$133 per night for you to plan the ideal relaxing (and romantic) getaway.

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.
There are many kinds of experience that people look out for when choosing a hotel for staycation. For the shoppers who cannot do without their retail therapy, hotels along Orchard Road and the Marina Bay area are your best bets. But for a staycation in a relaxing and quiet environment, yet still not too far away from the city, the new PARKROYAL on Pickering Street provides an impeccable experience that leaves you feeling rejuvenated.
