No time to travel out of Singapore? Have a staycation at these locations for a quick getaway!

1. Staycations in Singapore – Sofitel So Sentosa

Sofitel So Sentosa feels like a cross between a luxurious country club and a tropical resort, with a touch of Parisian chic, à la France’s Jardin du Luxembourg (thanks to all the grand chandeliers and fountains around the hotel). With the massive size of the compound, it’s no surprise that it also houses the world’s largest So SPA– the perfect place to melt all your stress away.

And what’s an island getaway without chilling by the beach? Sofitel So Sentosa has a direct access path to Tanjong Beach, which is probably one of the best in Singapore. Alternatively, you can relax by the hotel’s palm tree-lined pool, which has been a hit among families with children.

For a peaceful sanctuary with a private pool right at your doorstep, look no further than Resorts World’s Beach Villas. At this lavish staycation spot, you can’t help but feel pampered throughout your stay, whether you’re relaxing in your private jacuzzi or snoozing on mattresses with 400-thread count Egyptian cotton bed linen.

For a little more R&R, guests get complimentary access to the facilities of the world-renowned ESPA, including Vitality Pool, Forest Onsen-style Pool, Rock Sauna and Crystal Steam Room. And if you’re up for some fun, the Adventure Cove Waterpark is within walking distance of the Beach Villas too.

A former British military base, Capella Singapore is now an upscale hotel with rooms that promise a beautiful view, overlooking either the sea or the surrounding greenery. A stay at Capella feels very much like a resort getaway on an heritage-rich island. Stone showers and picturesque pools aside, the architecture and design pays homage to the property’s past, retaining parts of its colonial history while mixing in elements of the contemporary.

In place of the typical club lounge found in most hotels, The Library sits on the second floor of Capella, a chillout space featuring early 20th century decor. An oriental rug accentuates the theme of the interior, upon which a sofa and armchairs sit. Guests can take their pick from the shelves of books beside, while enjoying tea and all-day drinks – a cosy alternative to sun-bathing all day.

4. Staycations in Singapore – W Singapore Sentosa Cove

Nestled within what is probably Singapore’s most exclusive residential enclave, W Singapore Sentosa Cove oozes luxury with their posh location and modern design, with contemporary artworks scattered around the hotel. Head to Woo Bar while waiting for your check-in, where friendly bartenders will mix up your poison of choice.

Their massive pool is another highlight. With tons of floating beds and beach balls, just splashing around in it turns it into an unofficial pool party whenever there’s a crowd. It’s conveniently open 24hrs a day, so you can jump in whenever you want. And if you want to enjoy partying there even after your staycay, the hotel holds an (official) Endless Summer Pool Party on the first Sunday of every month that’s open to the public too.

Address: 21 Ocean Way, Singapore 098374

Phone: 6808 7288

With lux design and architecture by the likes of Norman Foster and Philippe Starck, you can expect to feel fancy at JW Marriott South Beach. Built around Art Deco heritage buildings of the ‘30s, the building now sees a steady stream of tourists and staycationers walking through its doors, greeting them with various works of art as soon as they enter.

The pool overlooking the city on the 18th floor is a gorgeous place for morning laps with a view, or for enjoying the sunset while dipping your feet in the waters. And ladies, try a room on the ladies floor. Equipped with a hair straightener, manicure and pedicure sets, a facial steamer and more, these ladies-only rooms are ideal for a pampering staycation with your girlfriends.
