Singapore Staycation Hotels Reviews

Staycation in Singapore is an increasingly popular way to make holiday for Singaporeans. It is a popular way to celebrate birth dates and anniversaries. Hotels in Singapore have also noted the demand and offers many Staycation Deals to Singapore residents. Not only hotels, you now go to any Travel section of a group buying site, you will see one or more staycation deals.

Staying in a hotel which is near your house might look strange to you. But once you experience it you will realize that it may be more convenient.

Capella Singapore Hotel Staycation Review
When you are in Capella Singapore on Sentosa Island, it is quite easily forget that you are just 10 minutes away from the business, shopping and entertainment districts of Singapore. The luxurious Sentosa Island resort sits peacefully on a knoll residing on 30 acres of lush tropical forest.

Blogger Kristen Juliet had a staycation in Capella Singapore Hotel and shares her experience in her Beauty Sorority blog:

"Overall, the staycation was definitely a very rejuvenating and pampering experience, and I will certainly recommend it for those who are craving for a short getaway. And since Capella is located in Sentosa, it means that you’re really away from the hustle and bustle and be able to really take a break from city life. What’s more with the integrated resort, beaches and other holiday spots in Sentosa, it means that you’d not be bored by inactivity."

Marina Bay Sands Staycation Review
The largest and one of the most crowded hotels of Singapore in the middle of the city, iconic Marina Bay Sands Hotel, may not look like a good option for staycation but your blogger milleplateaux has stayed in Marina Bay Sands for a staycation back in November 2012 and shares his experience:

Marina Bay Sands hotel is a 5-star hotel and if you have the money, it is worth to stay here. As a staycation destination, it can be tried for once for the sake of its SkyPark, Infinity Pool and the lovely view towards Gardens By The Bay. I am satisfied with it as a hotel and one time staycation hotel in Singapore but I will choose a more resort like hotel, maybe one on Sentosa Island, for the next time.

Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa Staycation Review
Moevenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa is ideally located within walking distance to Universal Studio Singapore and you can easily access VivoCity, the largest shopping mall in Singapore and Harbourfront Cruise Center by Sentosa monorail express which is opposite the hotel.

One of the most common occasions for a staycation in Singapore is to celebrate birthdays. Some Singapore hotels even offer birthday staycation deals to enjoy. Singaporean blogger Beverly has celebrated her 32nd birthday with a staycation in Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa:

"In Singapore, a “staycation” means staying in a hotel, whilst you’re still in the same country. When I describe it, it sounds positively silly. And I’ve never really been an advocate for them. But in reality, it’s actually really nice! You don’t feel the ‘urgency’ of day to day life, you really do feel like you’re on holiday, and you don’t have the usual distractions like tv/computer/etc."

Four Seasons Hotel Singapore Staycation Review
Four Seasons Hotel Singapore is located Orchard Boulevard which runs parallel to Orchard Road and the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore is on a parcel between these 2 roads. It is just behind Hilton Singapore which is on Orchard Road. The location is quite central and prime and many high end shopping malls on Orchard Road such as ION Orchard, Wheelock Place, Tang Plaza, Takashimaya Shopping Center are within walking distance away from the hotel.

Janine Clements has shared her staycation experience in Four Seasons Hotel Singapore in her 21stcenturymummy blog:

"Over the Summer, I have been having fun doing some fab one night ‘staycations’ at some luxury family-friendly hotels in Singapore.

The first family-friendly hotel was at Four Seasons Singapore right by Orchard Road. As a travel writer I love taking my family away on holiday, but it was nice to go somewhere only a ten minute taxi away for a change. No long car journeys or flights. Hurray!"

Grand Park Orchard Hotel Singapore Staycation Review
Shopping heaven Orchard Road also houses very nice hotels. Grand Park Orchard Hotel Singapore just behind the fashion retailer Abercrombie & Fitch is one of them. Shirley Tay of Luxury Haven was hosted with her family for a staycation in their lavish Park Suite, complete with their exclusive Crystal Club privileges: Staycation At Grand Park Orchard Hotel Singapore.

Village Changi Hotel Staycation Review
Village Changi Hotel is one of the best hotels in Singapore to getaway from Singapore without living the country. Overlooking Pulau Ubin at the forested edge of Singapore, it is an ideal staycation location for those who want to getaway.

Natalie Lim shares her staycation in Changi Village Hotel in Asia One:

My family has been on staycations since I was little, and we always stayed at a hotel near or at Orchard Road for easy access to shopping malls. After awhile the novelty wore off, so the idea of going to Changi Village for a staycation sounded exciting. 

My mum and I booked a night's stay at Village Changi Hotel, previously known as Changi Village Hotel. It is located conveniently opposite the bus terminal, and is less than five minutes' walk from the popular Changi Village Hawker Centre.
