7 Instagram-Worthy Singapore Hotels for Staycations with Holiday Vibes!

Room with a View: 7 Instagrammable Staycations That Will Give You Holiday Vibes

Ever want to take a vacation without really having to take a vacation? Sometimes, all we’re actually craving for is a change of scenery — and we’re pretty sure you can relate, especially since we’re all homebound for now.

When being cooped up at home gets to be a little too much, a staycation is always a good idea to beat the COVID-19 blues. And it doesn’t hurt when it’s at a picture-perfect hotel or resort either! It creates the illusion that you’re taking a relaxing holiday far away from home, don’t you think?

1. Have a luxe and cosy stay at M Social Hotel Singapore

You can choose to retreat into your personal space with accommodation options that come in various sizes and configurations. Alcove Cosy features bare concrete walls with mirrored surfaces, which extends into a striking 4m-tall pitched roof, creating a spacious vibe. Loft Premier, a duplex-style loft with raw marble flooring offers a roomy sofa, nesting table facilities that creates a workspace on the lower level with a queen-sized bed on the top floor. Loft Terraces comes with attached terraces for you to wind down outdoors.

Diners are also in for a treat as Beast & Butterflies at M Social Singapore, where cuisine and tipples are taken to the next level with a newly created menu by Executive Chef Bryce Li. Delectable and Instagram-worthy new dishes include the Charcoal Grilled Maine Lobster and Thai Milk Tea Pudding. Diners can also indulge in the $1 Oyster Friday Night promotion at Beast & Butterflies.

2. Get a taste of the city’s nightlife at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore

With The Fullerton Hotel Singapore’s wide range of dining options, you’re definitely in for an exciting gastronomic experience. And as if all that wasn’t enough, you need not leave the confines of the hotel for a taste of Singapore’s nightlife — its Town Restaurant promises guests a night to remember!

4. Enjoy culture at your doorstep at PARKROYAL on Beach Road, Singapore

What better way to give your Instagram aesthetic a boost with a staycation in one of Singapore’s heritage hotspots, Kampong Glam? Located a mere five-minute walk from the charming enclave, a stay at PARKROYAL on Beach Road, Singapore allows you to be right in the heart of the action. For a start, the rooms are generous in size and well-stocked with everything you need for a restful stay – perfect for recharging your batteries for a day of walking and exploring around the neighbourhood! The sleek, modern design also perfectly juxtaposes with the historical shophouses across the road, where you can pose with the iconic Sultan Mosque in between finding trinkets in the pretty shops along Haji Lane. Keep your eyes open for the alleys with beautiful wall art as well!

No stay at PARKROYAL on Beach Road, Singapore is complete without dropping by Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant. Located at the lobby of the hotel, the award-winning Chinese fine dining restaurant serves up authentic Sichuan dishes that are both drool-worthy and Instagram-worthy. Now that’s culture you can taste!

5. Enjoy a weekend of pampering at The St. Regis Singapore

Take snaps of Singapore’s breathtaking skyline from your room at The St. Regis Singapore! Situated in the heart of the city, the hotel places you within walking distance of must-visit hubs for shopping, culture, history, and entertainment. However, we’re pretty sure you’ll be tempted to stay in — the hotel itself already offers an experience you won’t want to miss out on! 

Let go of your worries and make yourself at home in their well-appointed rooms and proceed to enjoy the hotel’s luxurious amenities. You’re in for a palatable dining experience at their award-winning restaurants, plus nothing but bliss with so many rejuvenating spa treatments to choose from.

The resort, located in the State of Fun no less, is staycation-worthy no matter who you happen to be travelling with. While it’s solo-traveller friendly, it’s a great choice for couples and families, too!

Instagrammable corners are aplenty at the French luxury resort, and the gorgeous outdoor pool is clearly a favourite spot for photo ops. This being said, we’re pretty sure you’ll be spending much of your downtime here — not only for a refreshing dip, but for all the double-tap worthy IG photos just waiting to be taken!

Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa’s interiors are just as inviting. A marriage of French design as well as elements from Singapore’s colonial heritage, this charming aesthetic is found all across the resort — from the villas and suites all the way to the restaurants. Could we ask for anything more?
