An Official Welcome
Whether you are looking for budget or luxury accommodation, the Little Red Dot has it all.
Not far from Changi Airport lies Katong, an area of rich history and one of the best areas to enjoy wandering along narrow streets of heritage shophouses, which today plays host to modern day homes, boutique stores and traditional hawkers.
Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong rises out of part of an old police station. A boutique hotel with a contemporary nod to a rich past, modern day travellers should not miss a chance to see the stunning view of the city from the hotel’s 25 metre rooftop infinity pool.
From around A$200/night
A stone’s throw from the shopping heart of Singapore: Orchard Road, lies Lloyd’s Inn with its eight different room types, all allowing you to connect with nature. From a standard room to the palatial sky room with its outside bathtub, each room gives you the opportunity to make the most of the island sunshine and the velvet night sky.
From around A$160/night
Luxury Resort Living
With its pristine beaches and tranquil air, the resort of Sentosa seems a world away from the bustling city life of Singapore — even though the journey is a mere 15 minutes by cab.
Meander up the private driveway of the Capella to the entrance, housed in heritage 1860s architecture. Set in 30 acres of land and with the waves of the South China Sea lapping at the beach, this is the ideal venue for a long-term getaway or as a short staycation.
From around A$900/night
If money is no issue, head to one of Singapore’s most opulent accommodation: the Presidential Suite at the St. Regis near Orchard Road. Not only can you view the city from a wrap around balcony as custom chandeliers twinkle in the sunlight, you can invite 11 friends for dinner in your private dining room to marvel at the cityscape. Add a private jacuzzi, your own gym and pick up from the airport by Bentley and the five-figure sum seems a small price to pay!
From around A$12,000/night
Adler Luxury Hostel is the new definition of co-living with old world charm. Minimalist but inviting, Adler Luxury Hostel banishes all reminiscences of budget backpacking. Relax in a train style cabin bed and choose from a super single to a king cabin that gives access to a lovely balcony overlooking the whole of Chinatown and its landmarks. Located right in the heart of Chinatown, it is a great base from which to explore one of the city’s most vibrant cultural areas, not forgetting the chance to enjoy some of the country’s best bars and restaurants as the sun goes down.
