It is no news that Singaporeans are some of the most stressed people out there and our hectic lifestyles can sometimes make it hard for us to pack up our bags and jet off somewhere for a much-needed holiday. That’s why many of us, especially young Singaporeans, enjoy having a staycation once in a while to take a break from our packed schedules. Our little red dot is home to hundreds of aesthetic, cosy hotels and we are usually left spoilt for choice. If you’re in need of a mini getaway and would like some ideas, here is a list of our favourite hotels for your “getaway”!

Be blown away by their high tech features as well as their sleek and modern interior which was inspired by a first-class airplane cabin. The rooms have everything you need for a simple getaway and plus, you get to pop on over to the gorgeous Jewel Changi Airport to shop! Sounds like the perfection staycation to us.

4) Hotel 1888 Collection
For those of you who love something a little more minimalistic, you can consider booking Hotel 1888. It is located in Chinatown and just a stone’s throw away from all the nightlife at Clarke Quay. Their monochrome themed rooms are every minimalist’s dream and the sleek yet cosy design makes it the perfect place for a quick getaway. If you’re feeling a little more baller, you can opt to upgrade yourselves to the Executive Double Room which features a massive standalone bathtub that’s perfect for a long soak.

5) Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong
To immerse yourself in something with a little more culture, we recommend Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong. The hotel has a vibrant traditional Peranakan theme going on with the rooms decked out in gorgeous murals, colourful prints and even vintage antiques such as a sewing machine! Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong Location: 86 East Coast Road, Singapore 428788 Price: From S$161/night East Coast Park is nearby. If you have pets why not take them for a day out?
6) Hotel Kai
Hotel Kai’s rooms are in general pretty cosy and affordable, but what we really recommend you to do is take it up a notch and book their Urban Sky Loft room that comes equipped with a spacious balcony and a cosy loft bedroom. The neat set-up is the perfect option for a bunch of friends who want to have a chill getaway together or for a couple who is looking for a romantic escape. Hotel Kai Location: 14 Purvis Street Singapore 188593 Price: From $146/night This could be a brilliant date idea. Here are some more.
7) Moon 23 Hotel
This cosy boutique hotel that is conveniently located 2-minutes away from Jalan Besar MRT is the perfect place for a romantic staycation with Bae. If you want to up the romance, you can also request to have your bed and bathtub decorated with flowers. For those of you who are booking the room for a special occasion such as an anniversary or a birthday, you can consider booking their moonlight suite which comes with a private pool. Moon 23 Hotel Location: 23 Dickson Road, Singapore 209507 Price: From $135/night
8) M Social
M Social is well-known for its loft-style hotel rooms which are great for housing bigger groups of people. If you are, however, not all about that loft life, you can also opt to stay in one of their standard rooms which are just as luxurious and as comfortable. Its rooms come with plenty of sunlight, helped by warm wooden decor, long mirrored walls and floor-to-ceiling windows. M Social Location: 90 Robertson Quay, Singapore 238879 Price: From $146/night
9) The Great Madras
The Great Madras is more of a hostel that comes with capsule bunks, but they also have private rooms. We recommend staying at The Great Suite, which features a cosy, private room that comes with a incredibly comfortable bed and a massive bathtub that is great for a long, soothing soak. We also love how the hotel has plenty of pretty wall decors where you can snap some Instagram-worthy photos. The Great Madras Location: 28 Madras Street, Singapore 20842 Price: From $58/night
10) Village Hotel at Sentosa
We usually try to avoid the Sentosa area when it comes to staycations as the hotels there usually come along with a pretty hefty price tag. However, The Village Hotel is an absolute game-changer with its aesthetic yet affordable accommodation that is great for large groups of friends and families. For a big gathering, we recommend getting The Family Room which features spacious rooms that have connecting doors so you can pop on over to say hi to whoever else you’re staying with easily. The place is also conveniently located right smack in the middle of Sentosa so you can head down to the beach for a fun day out too! Village Hotel at Sentosa Location: 10 Artillery Avenue, Singapore 099951 Price: From $323
