Organised annually by the Singapore Tourism Board, the STA honours the cream of the crop in the tourism industry. Come and experience the stellar services provided by STA winners and nominees—we guarantee that you’ll remember your stay in Singapore for many years to come.
We’ve rounded up this year’s winners and created an itinerary that’s jam-packed with outstanding experiences, so you won’t miss a thing during your trip with us.
Check into The Quincy Hotel (Best Hotel Experience), a boutique hotel that sits conveniently in the heart of Orchard Road, Singapore’s iconic shopping belt. Drop off your luggage in one of the hotel’s well-appointed Studio Deluxe Rooms. It comes fully furnished with a Nespresso coffee machine for that morning cuppa and a Handy phone equipped with mobile internet and free international calls so you’ll never miss home. You may be tempted to lounge in the LED-illuminated deck by the infinity pool and take in stunning views of the city, but don’t stay too long—there’s plenty to explore in the neighbourhood.
Zip through Orchard Road, making a pit stop at each mall that you pass along the way. There’s ION Orchard, which has a good mix of luxury and affordable labels, Scotts Square, home to international designers such as Alexander McQueen and Christian Louboutin, and TANGS, a heritage department store that stocks a plethora of local brands.
You’ll find Bynd Artisan (Best Shopping Experience) at both Scotts Square and TANGS—the local brand draws from its heritage as a bookmaker and leather crafter to create bespoke gifts that’ll make perfect souvenirs.
Cap off your evening with a cocktail from Manhattan (Best Nightspot Experience) at the Regent Singapore. This swish bar inspired by 19th century New York City recently took home the top spot in 2017's Asia’s 50 Best Bars list. Journey through the Big Apple’s boroughs as you sip on drinks with histories that stretch way back into the Prohibition era.
