COVID-19: Five-star city hotels in Singapore offering luxurious staycation packages

Marina Bay Sands

You can’t leave Singapore just yet, but these luxurious hotels and resorts (along with their unbeatable deals) will help ease your travel blues for now

We’re finally allowed to make bookings in local hotels and resorts. Here’s our plan for you: check in early and make a beeline for the spa. Enjoy some afternoon tea, lounge by the pool while listening to a podcast or two, head out to dinner, come back for a bubble bath and repeat. Hopefully, you’ll leave refreshed, energised and a lot happier

Andaz Singapore

Why we love it: Andaz Singapore may be a city hotel, but it has so much to offer that guests may be tempted to stay in and enjoy its facilities. Take for example the five concepts on Alley on 25 – which will have you hopping from one restaurant to another as you sample their signature dishes. Then, there’s also Mr Stork, the roof-top bar which offers stunning views of the city. If you’d like to enjoy your drinks in private, just get cosy in one of its teepees.

Robb tip: Enjoy complimentary breakfast for two adults with the hotel’s special staycation package for Singapore residents. Choose from a selection of designer suites and rooms – all complete with great views.Valid for stays until 22 December.

JW Marriott Singapore South Beach

Why we love it: The unconventional architecture of the hotel has made it a Singapore landmark, but there’s much more to JW Marriott than just its facade. For an urban escapade, the hotel offers stunning city views from the Sky Garden or the infinity pool on the 18th floor. Plus, it’s also a stone’s throw away from The NCO Club, which houses the Cool Cats jazz bar, and Madame Fan, a great spot for Chinese cuisine. Plus, it has one of the best city spas we’ve been to.

Robb tip: Take your pick from the offers here. The Rejuvenating Spa Staycation, for instance, comes with a 60-minute Relaxing or Stress Relief massage for two at Spa by JW. Valid till 30 December 2020.

Mandarin Oriental, Singapore

Why we love it: Mandarin Oriental Singapore isn’t just home to Morton’s – one of the best steakhouses in the city. The five-star luxury hotel is also a hotspot during the F1 night races due to its convenient location in the heart of the city. This means waking up to inimitable views of the skyline, which few of its counterparts can offer.

Robb tip: Your third night is on the house here, if you choose to plan your stay anytime until 31 March 2021, and don’t leave without a night at Mo Bar. Cocktails are solid (we recommend the fruity Harvest Queen and Northern Tribe, a hot and cold concoction of rum and coconut coffee), but if you’re down for Champagne and oysters instead, there’s a special offer on Wednesday nights (6pm to 9pm). S$78 will get you a dozen oysters and 90 minutes worth of free-flow Ruinart and selected signature cocktails.

Marina Bay Sands Hotel

Why we love it: Arguably one of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks, Marina Bay Sands has it all. Head to Sands SkyPark Observation Deck for a bird’s-eye view of Singapore or take a dip in the world’s largest infinity pool. There’s also no lack of celebrity restaurants and fashion and jewellery boutiques at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands that’ll keep you entertained. 

Robb tip: The Sands Staycation package comes with a complimentary room upgrade, 15 per cent off ArtScience Museum tickets, and 15 per cent off couple treatments at the Banyan Tree Spa. Valid till 31 December 2020.

Raffles Hotel Singapore  

Why we love it: Birthplace of the iconic Singapore Sling, Raffles Hotel has a storied history. The heritage building still maintains its old-world façade, but has been blessed with a modern touch following extensive restoration work last year.

Robb tip: From now till 13 December, the hotel is offering the Suite Theatre at Raffles package, a staycation experience that includes a personal evening screening of a local theatre production – select from SingTheatre’s A Spoonful of Sherman, Pangdemonium’s Rent or Double Confirm Productions’s Hossan-AH 50! – Love You LEONG Time! – of your choice. A dedicated butler will also have you coddled with a specially curated selection of cocktails and canapes.

Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore

Why we love it: We have to admit that Shangri-La Hotel Singapore is home to one of the most beautiful hotel club lounges in the city with stellar views to boot. Furthermore, dining options are aplenty here; get your Italian fix at Waterfall Ristorante Italiano, hawker fare at the Lobby Lounge and Chinese cuisine at Shang Palace. And before you call it a day, head down to Origin Bar for locally inspired cocktails.

The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore

Why we love it: Based in the heart of the city and set within the ’30s of the Capitol Building, The Capitol Kempinski Hotel is an elegant grande dame that has luxury at its core. The original architecture has been fused with modern flair to create a luxury retreat in the civic and cultural district, while there are plenty of nooks and corners within the space to ensure that you are thoroughly entertained throughout your stay.

Robb tip: There are a host of specials available, including 50 per cent off the Stamford Suite when you stay there for at least two nights. You’ll enjoy daily breakfast for two and S$100 worth of dining credit that can be redeemed at either 15 Stamford or the Arcade. Valid till 29 December 2020.

The Fullerton Hotel Singapore 

Why we love it: The hotel’s one of our national monuments, having been built in 1928. Plus, the ex-national post office is a neoclassical gem amidst the contemporary skyscrapers in the city. For those who love afternoon tea, The Courtyard serves classic English sets that come with unlimited top-ups. A gluten-free afternoon tea set is also available.

Robb tip: Of all the deals available, Suite Compliments come with a second night on the house (this applies to The Fullerton Bay Hotel as well) for every suite booking you make.

The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore

Why we love it: The hotel offers stunning views of the metropolis’ skyline. You’ll also find an extensive art collection that’s displayed throughout the walkways and welcome lobbies.

Robb Tip: Of the two packages available, those with children should opt for the Ritz Kids Night Safari deal. Cultivate the spirit of the great outdoors (without having to sacrifice the indoors) with your kids as they receive edible amenities, a passport, activity book, lion beanie and discovery map where they can earn stamps to redeem ice cream. They can also go ‘camping’ in a sleeping tent that will be pitched in the room. Valid till 30 December 2020.

The St. Regis Singapore  

Why we love it: This is probably the closest we’ll get to experience New York without having to set foot in the city. It’s also home to Brasserie Les Saveurs, one of the best French restaurants in town.  

Robb Tip: Whisky connoisseurs are going to love this one. In celebration of The Macallan’s launch of its newest 15 Year Double Cask Whisky, The St. Regis Singapore has partnered with the whisky brand to roll out The Macallan Sling and Stay package. Available from now until 31 December 2020 at a rate of S$510++ per night, the staycation experience comes complete with a welcome bottle of the iconic whisky, cocktail-making masterclass and epicurean breakfast for two.
