Hotels in Singapore are finally reopening, slowly but surely! Channel your inner boujee self and celebrate with a staycation by renting a villa or a penthouse, and living like modern kings and queens - even if only for a night or two.

If you feel like you need a vacation away from home while staying right here in tropical Singapore, I have a few places I think you’ll absolutely love. 

1. Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong (SG Clean)

With every inch of space inspired by Peranakan culture and paying homage to the heritage of its lively neighbourhood, staying in this hotel is a real treat. It is housed on the site of the former Joo Chiat Police Station, now a conservation building in Singapore's first designated Heritage Town. The charming and heartland neighbourhood, housing gelaterias, hip eateries, and many cultural gems, are just some of the reasons for you to stay.

2. The Capitol Kempinski (SG Clean)

Located in Singapore’s civic and cultural district, the 155-room Capitol Kempinski follows years of restoration by acclaimed Pritzker Architecture Prize winner, Richard Meier. It brings out the best of the neoclassical-style Capitol Building (1930) and Venetian Renaissance-style Stamford House (1904). The hotel houses a mall and a theatre, and with proximity to Marina Bay Sands and CHIJMES, you have access to multiple classic landmarks that Singapore has to offer.

3. Lloyd's Inn (SG Clean)

Lloyd’s Inn is your dream Bali getaway without having to get on a plane. This tranquil boutique hotel presents itself as an oasis of nature. Here, you can de-stress in a private outdoor bathtub, hang out by the iconic dipping pool amidst luscious foliage, or stargaze on the rooftop. Oh, don’t forget a poolside photoshoot!

4. The St. Regis Singapore

Arguably fit for royalty, the exquisite St. Regis will leave you feeling lush and pampered. Each room has an old-worldly charm with a meticulously selected crystal chandelier and an original art piece, whilst the St. Regis Butler Service is available any time. The hotel houses one of Asia's finest private art collections, the exclusive Remède Spa, and offers Italian, Chinese, and French cuisines at the Brasserie Les Saveurs, LaBrezza, and Yan Ting respectively.

What better way to celebrate than with room service, rooftop swims, and resting and rejuvenating in a home away from home, am I right?
