Traveling to exotic locales can be fun and exciting, but it can be just as much fun holidaying in your own home town, especially if you only have time for a weekend getaway. Instead of spending half of your short break traveling to and from your destination, have a staycation, scrap the travel time and get to know your own city better!
No matter what your plans, be it a trip with the kids, romantic escape for two, spa weekend or something else, you can find a fantastic break right here at home.

With butler service, a deep-soak tub, cloud-like beds, a pool, sauna, relaxation spa and six restaurants all on-site, the St. Regis Singapore is as luxurious as they come.
In case you and your paramour do wish to venture out of this stunning hotel, you will find yourselves nestled between the Orchard Road shopping district and Singapore Botanic Gardens. Bliss.
Where to stay: Grand Park Orchard
A romantic weekend for two is always an indulgence and there is nothing more indulgent than a couples massage in this hotel’s full-service spa, followed by a visit to the high-end stores and entertainment venues just steps from its front door.
Return at the end of a busy day spent strolling hand in hand through the district for a cocktail at Bar Canary, where you can admire the Singapore skyline by night. Lovely.
