We know you’ve worked hard for that well-deserved vacation to Singapore. Now, pamper yourself with all the luxuries our city has to offer.
Be enraptured by world class cuisine, sample our UNESCO Heritage-winning hawker food, or live the high life from atop Marina Bay Sands®. Depending on when you visit, you may be greeted by the roar of race car engines at the world’s first-ever Formula 1 night race, or be dazzled by the Christmas lights as you shop for fashion along Orchard Road.
If rest and relaxation are what you seek, our city is home to award-winning spas and tranquil green sanctuaries. Regardless of what you crave, you’re bound to find an experience to indulge in.
Stellar shopping options
Want to shop to your heart’s delight? You needn’t blow your travel budget to indulge. There are flea markets, heartland shopping malls and myriad retail options at Changi Airport that gives megamalls a run for their money.
For a truly elevated retail experience, head to the pinnacle of luxury shopping, Marina Bay Sands®. Fashionistas can make a pilgrimage to the iconic Louis Vuitton Island Maison, or get some arm candy at big-name watch stores such as Hublot, Bering and TAG Heuer.
Art connoisseurs can pick up your next favourite masterpiece at White Space Art Asia or Ode to Art at Raffles City (check out this list for more options). Be sure to drop by Bynd Artisan when you vist the latter—this beloved local brand stocks a beautiful range of handcrafted leather goods.
Besides being a retail paradise, Singapore boasts a constellation of Michelin-starred restaurants that specialise in cuisine from all across the globe.
Odette and Les Amis both carry the distinction of being 3 Michelin Star restaurants—and the elevated French fare found at both these establishments are well worth sampling. Other noteworthy mentions include Zén —which specialises in Scandinavian cuisine and shot straight to a 2 Michelin star ranking in 2019.
If you’ve fallen in love with local flavours, reserve yourself a table at Candlenut. Helmed by local chef-owner Malcolm Lee, the restaurant serves up Peranakan* fare and nonya staples with a modern twist.
*The term is an Indonesian/Malay word that means “local born”, which generally refers to people of Chinese and Malay/Indonesian heritage.
If you’d rather be out and about, hop from the bar to the dock and charter a yacht ride from ONE°15 Luxury Yachting. Soak up the sun while you’re out on the bay on a vessel that’s all yours for the afternoon, or cruise to Singapore’s Southern Islands for an escapade from the busy city.
Don’t miss the quintessential luxury event in Singapore, the FORMULA ONE Singapore Grand Prix. Pro tip: head to the Paddock Club for the best F1® experience. The F1® parties also get as loud as the F1 cars’ revving engines—be sure to check out Amber Lounge, the night and day party where the coolest cats go to see and be seen.
Make time for R&R
All that travelling and exploring can tire out your muscles and skin. Rejuvenate at Sulwhasoo SPA, where their intensive facial treatment will give your exhausted skin a much-needed boost using Sulwhasoo’s Ginseng Renewing Cream and other top-of-the-line skincare products.
Frazzled travellers can also head to Remede Spa at The St. Regis Singapore for calming respite. At Remede Spa, elegant marble décor greets you the moment you step through the front doors, truly setting the tone for the champagne, truffles, and customised wellness treatments to come.
Retire for the night in the swankiest hotels the city has to offer. Check in to The Capella Singapore for those island getaway vibes—opt to stay in a garden villa, which puts you in the midst of lush greenery and exudes exclusivity. Or stay in one of The Capella’s 436-square-metre Colonial Manors, heritage gems that come with a stately dining room, a study, a fully-equipped kitchen and a mini lap pool. Spend a relaxing afternoon at The Library at Capella Singapore, a wonderful sanctuary where guests can enjoy a good book over a spot of tea.
For something fun and upbeat, book a stay at W Singapore. We’re talking Jacuzzi tubs, linens with a 350 thread count, and (if you’re staying at the Extreme WOW Suite) an outdoor plunge pool. The hotel’s main pool is also open 24/7, with a poolside bar and the occasional DJ set.
