You’ll never be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a good hotel in Singapore – it has it all, from quirky boutique numbers to same-old chain favourites… and of course swanky, shimmery five star uber-luxury establishments. If money’s no object and you’re looking to really indulge during your stay, then here’s a selection of three of the best hotels in Singapore to choose from.
Marina Bay Sands
Unless you’ve been visiting another planet in the last few months, you won’t have missed the fanfare surrounding the opening of the world’s most expensive hotel – the Marina Bay Sands hotel. This newest and most spectacular addition to Singapore’s skyline features three hotel towers housing 2,500 rooms and suites, convention and exhibition facilities, theaters, a casino, shops and numerous restaurants. What’s really got the tongues wagging though is the rooftop swimming pool, bar, restaurant and observation deck.
Despite the astonishing rate of development and modernisation in Singapore, the most famous landmark remains colonial grande dame, Raffles Hotel. Its breezy verandas and palm-filled courtyards whisk you back to a forgotten era of colonial elegance, when its rich and famous guests, included Noel Coward and Charlie Chaplin. This all-suite hotel oozes charm and sophistication and with 18 food and beverage outlets and 65 specialty shops, you may never want to leave to explore the modern side of the city.
Renowned British architecture firm Foster + Partners have fused the best of old and new Singapore, incorporating curved, modern buildings with two 19th century colonial buildings to stunning effect with this exclusive hotel on Sentosa Island. Many of the 112 guest rooms, suites, villas, and manors overlook the South China Sea and some have private plunge pools with outdoor bathing facilities. Four pools and the luxurious Auriga spa ensure your stay will be relaxing and blissful.
