Staycation in Singapore:
We Are All Set!

The wait for that long-awaited staycation in Singapore is over. Singapore Tourism Board has started revealing the list of hotels that have received approval to reopen and it is growing by the day. These are some of our favourite hotels in Singapore and we hope to check in soon. 

14 July 2020

Updated on 4 August 2020

One of the best ways to enjoy Marina Bay’s historic and cultural Fullerton Heritage precinct is to plan a staycation at either The Fullerton Hotel Singapore or The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore – or both. 

Step back in time at the former General Post Office that is The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and now Singapore’s 71st national monument. The property is a grand neoclassical landmark built in 1928 and has, given its scale, a grand staircase in the lobby that makes quite a statement. As you do laps in the 25-metre outdoor infinity pool, you enjoy a view of the Singapore River as well as the hotel’s stunning facade anchored by majestic Doric columns. The rooms at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore are blessed with splendid views of the Singapore River or Marina Bay.

Now that the luxe Fullerton has reopened for staycations, take advantage of its Time for Two package:

– Enjoy a four course set dinner for two persons in the comfort of your room (with a choice of Western or Vegetarian menu) and a bottle of house wine (red or white) valued at S$238

– Daily breakfast for two persons

– A pair of Fullerton bears for your stay 

Rates for Quay Room start from S$510++.

Book with peace of mind as Fullerton’s staycation packages allow guests to make changes to stay dates and cancel without any penalty. Other staycation packages worth checking out include Suite Compliments for a long weekend and Perfect Staycation for upcoming school holidays.

Quiet nights of quiet stars: the Fullerton Suite is the kind of spacious bolthole for a ‘stay-in’ weekend. Nextflix and chill in your suite or have cocktails at the balcony and never need leave until check out. 

InterContinental Singapore has been flying the flag of hospitality and gastronomy since the 90s and we love how this iconic heritage hotel located in the heart of Singapore’s arts and cultural district Bugis and Bras Brasah stays relevant over the years. It underwent refurbishment in recent years and emerged resolutely radiant, polished and more confident than ever.  

When you step inside, the eye is immediately drawn to the Lobby Lounge, the centrepiece of the hotel. A beautiful picture of symmetry, chandeliers, towering pillars and Peranakan tiles, the opulent lounge is filled with plush armchairs and sofas from which afternoon tea, amongst other meals, can be enjoyed. 

The guestrooms blend heritage and luxurious touches together with modern technology.  The Heritage Wing, in particular, impresses as it brings to mind living in the shophouses from the 1920s; its rooms and suites feature timber flooring, duck egg blue panelling, Peranakan accents as well as louvre windows and woodshutters overlooking busy street scenes.

As we enjoy adding a dimension of food to a holiday – even for a staycation in Singapore – our eyes are set on the Stay and Savour package which includes: 

– Breakfast for 2 adults 

– SGD50 nett hotel dining credit

– 25% savings at Lobby Lounge and Man Fu Yuan

– Complimentary car park coupon

A one-night accommodation for two in a room or suite of your choice starts from S$338++. 

If you happen to be a paw-rent, the Paw-fect Staycation package has a proverbial red carpet rolled out for your furkid.

When the clock strikes 10.30pm, we encourage you to call it a night – whether you are inebriated or otherwise seeing as we are still in Phase 2 – and head back for a good night’s rest in Hotel Soloha’s lofts just around the corner.

This biophilic beauty designed by WOHA is all of 27 storeys high with 314 keys and is quite a stunner – a towering signal red skyscraper cocooned in skyrise greenery rising above the CBD. For the interiors, architect and renowned designer Patricia Urquiola was enlisted to create the wonderfully calming rooms featuring full length windows, city views and lots of wood. It is a great base to explore the many wonderful food and drink options in the ‘hood across Tanjong Pagar, Craig Road, Tras Street and the like.

Sentosa provides a nice respite from the city, one which has reverted to its busy self now that we are firmly in Phase 2 of Opening. For a quiet weekend shrouded in serenity within 30-acres of lush rainforest on the island, the luxe Capella Singapore is our resort of choice. 

Inspired by Tanah Merah’s Malay translation red earth, architects Foster + Partners, led by Sir Lord Norman Foster, designed the resort to sit in harmony with surrounding nature, combining old-world colonial charm with contemporary chic.   

If your stay falls on a Sunday, join their late afternoon Heritage and Art Tour where you will learn about Singapore’s colonial past and discover the history behind Capella’s majestic heritage bungalows built in the 1880s for the British officers of the Royal Artillery. If being acquainted with over 900 commissioned art pieces that are displayed throughout the resort – as well as the five heritage trees within the compound that are over a hundred years old – don’t impress you, we don’t know what will. 

Steeped in refinement, the Capella Villa Experience is an attractive one – guests get to enjoy a complimentary villa upgrade when they book one of the Premier Seaview Rooms. The package also includes:

 

* Please contact Capella to enquire for early check-in availability. For late check-out, please enquire upon check-in.

For us, a trip to Changi Airport always conjures up images and vibe of an overseas vacation – even if it’s an errand to pick up a friend / friend from overseas or a trip to see Jewel. A staycation at Terminal 3’s Crowne Plaza Changi Airport has the same effect as well. Well-appointed and comfortable, you’d want to opt for rooms with runway views for the occasional aircraft takeoff/landing. 

During this time, there are less aircrafts in the ‘hood but it also means more space to wander at Jewel, especially if you wish to get that perfect shot with the highest indoor waterfall in the world – the Rain Vortex – or a table at one of the restaurants. 

 The Crowne Plaza Changi Airport has a Stay, Shop, Play! room package that allows you to discover the Canopy Park at Jewel while staying with the property. 

The  Stay, Shop, Play! package includes: 

  • One-night stay in Pool Terrace Room with direct access to outdoor landscaped pool
  • Daily breakfast at Azur for 2 adults. Children below 6 years dine free.
  • Canopy Park tickets for 2 adults and 1 child (per room per stay), including access to Discovery Slides, Foggy Bowls, Petal Garden and Topiary Walk
  • Complimentary 24-hour parking at Changi Airport Terminal 3B Car Park (single entry parking per stay)
  • Late check-out till 4pm (subject to availability)
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

Other packages on offer include the Rest and Relax package, perfect for those on a couple’s weekend.
