The Best Places to Stay in Singapore

We all know the stresses associated with overseas travel – but there’s nothing worse than the pressures of having guests in town! Whether it’s parents, friends, colleagues or siblings – playing host and city guide can take its toll. To help their decision-making process, we have selected the best Singapore hotels to suit all visitors and occasions. Whether it’s in the historic Chinatown enclave, the sophisticated neighbourhood of Robertson Quay, or on an idyllic island, these are perfect bases from which they can set foot on exploring what the city has to offer!  

For foodies & those looking for a home away from home:

Opened late last year on the Singapore River at Robertson Quay, InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay allows you to choose between river or city facing guestrooms. The light-filled room interiors have been designed to magnify the familiar comforts of home, where you can sink into soft, plush, custom-made furnishings and enjoy bespoke amenities. During your stay, you’ll have to visit their flagship restaurant Publico, a multi-concept dining destination comprising a variety of Italian experiences under one roof – a neighbourhood deli and bar and a ristorante with adjoining terrazzo by the river. With so many dining options in the hotel and a specially curated range of restaurants in local neighbourhood The Quayside for you to choose from, it’s a culinary dream!

Away from the hustle and bustle, Mr & Mrs Smith’s Villa Samadhi Singapore is the place for a peaceful stay. A black-and-white, flawlessly chic mansion hidden away in Labrador Nature Reserve, you’ll find the rooms at Villa Samadhi Singapore echoing the hotel’s genteel colonial vibe, with a pared-down monochrome palette, sleek wooden floors and imposing carved four-poster beds. Visit the restaurant on Tamarind Hill that serves innovative Thai cuisine then take a leisure stroll down from Labrador Nature Reserve, which is part of the Southern Ridges – a 10-kilometre stretch of connecting trails leading up to the forest canopy, where you’ll find indigenous flora and 70 species of bird.
