It’s your bae’s birthday or you have an anniversary coming up, with no plans on the radar. You panic and scramble for a quick but thoughtful gift to make him or her feel on top of the moon. Or better still, you both just need a break from your hectic routine but have no time to plan for a trip away.
All sounds familiar to you? Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. If you don’t want to venture far but need a quick and easy idea to treat your significant other, a staycation is a great way to check off all the boxes for an unforgettable celebration.
According to Brand Expedia’s 2018 Singapore Staycation Study, six in 10 Singaporeans have gone on at least one staycation in the past 12 months. And unsurprisingly, one of the top three reasons for going on a Singapore staycation is for a romantic getaway!
If you’re looking for fresh options for your romantic couples’ getaway, here are five great romantic staycay suggestions to consider according to your budget and style!
5 New Romantic Hotels for a Couples Staycation
Romantic Staycay Pick #1: M Social Singapore
Wallet Damage: From S$135 a night
Tucked away in the heart of the city and building on the popularity of loft studio rooms, M Social Singapore is perfect for a staycation if you still want to be close to the hub of activity. Its chic and stylish minimalistic design is both cosy and welcoming, and if you are prone to making decisions on the fly while you’re out, the hotel offers a self-service kiosk for booking a staycation on the spot (pending room availability of course).
The best thing about loft rooms is the experience of retiring to an even more private space to cuddle with your bae (as if the room wasn’t private enough!) after a long day exploring in the nearby areas of Clarke Quay and Great World City.
Romantic Staycay Pick #2: Hotel Jen Orchardgateway Singapore
Wallet Damage: From S$204 a night
Located right in the heart of Orchard Road, Hotel Jen Orchardgateway Singapore exudes a unique energy that beats to the rhythm of the city. At Hotel Jen, you and your bae will be immersed in a home away from home, with plenty of shopping, entertainment, dining and party options available all through the day.
Spend some time lounging by the 47-metre rooftop infinity pool with spectacular views of the cityscape or bring your bae over to BayWatch@Jen for a cocktail or two as you enjoy the beautiful and unobstructed sunset. With complimentary Wi-Fi, a 24-hour fitness centre, express check-in, check-out and more, the hotel offers everything you need for a romantic staycation and more.
Romantic Staycay Pick #3: Ann Siang House
Wallet Damage: From S$262 a night
One of the newest players in towns, Ann Siang House is a fashionably restored heritage property. Featuring rooms that fuse tradition and modernity, the rooms are homely and comforting – great for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.
And if you and bae like to party, the hotel is set in the middle of popular watering holes at Ann Siang Hill, perfect for you to hit the streets and party before retiring back for some much needed zzzs. However, you might not even want to venture out as well! With the hotel’s focus on comfort, get ready for the best ‘Netflix and Chill’ session while lounging on a luxurious Hypnos “Firenze” bed (touted to be the most comfortable beds in the world!) in the room’s cosy and warm ambience.
Romantic Staycay Pick #4: Six Senses Duxton
Wallet Damage: From S$306 a night
One of the hottest new kid in town, Six Senses Duxton features a synthesis of Chinese, Malay and European design elements in its architecture. Located in the heart of the city, the hotel sets itself apart from the urban jungle around it with its mission to be the greenest hotel in the region.
If a wellness experience is yours and your partner’s thing – you won’t be disappointed. The hotel will put you both into an atmosphere of contemplative nostalgia to bring you closer. To start your journey, choose between wildly different themed rooms: the opulent dimly lit Opium Suite, the all-white Pearl Suite, or the monochromatic Duxton Duplex Suite featuring a spiral staircase, among others – before ending off your staycation with a 45-minute yoga session early in the morning.
Romantic Staycay Pick #5: The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore
Wallet Damage: From S$500 a night
If you’re looking for the ultimate pamper getaway, consider the newly opened Capitol Kempinski Hotel. The hotel recently opened its doors for guests to experience luxury in the 1950s. Housed in the restored Capitol Building and Stamford House, stepping into the hotel will take you back through time to the colonial era as each of its 157 guest rooms are configured to complement the architectural features of the heritage building.
One marker of a great staycation spot is the presence of a bath tub you can soak in. Here at the Capitol Kempinski Hotel, however, that experience is elevated. Soak in the deep tub with your choice of bath bomb and savour your time in the enormous and tastefully designed bathroom. And if that’s not enough, treat yourself to a relaxing massage in the hotel itself, before lounging beside the outdoor pool to end the day.
We’re sure that no matter where you choose, your bae will appreciate the short holiday away from home with you. It’s not the place, but the company that matters right?
