When it comes to luxury travel destinations Singapore is a stand out. From the moment you step off the plane, this Asian hub is such an easy city to navigate, even if it’s your first Singapore getaway. There are indulgences to satisfy every traveller from interesting places to eat, world-class shopping that will leave your wallet feeling a little lighter, cultural activities aplenty, and beautiful luxury hotels where you can unwind at the end of the day. Here are five of the best luxury hotels in Singapore that are worth the splurge during your stay.
Five of the Best Luxury Hotels in Singapore
Four Seasons Hotel
Four Seasons hotels really are in a class of their own. Walking into a Four Seasons property is always dream-like. With each beautiful detail a stunning show of opulence. The Four Seasons Singapore was the perfect example and clearly one of the best luxury hotels in Singapore. Old world traditional Eastern elegance, superior smiles, large suites and world-class dining made it difficult to leave the hotel, even for the short walk to ION Orchard, Far East Plaza for some infamous Singapore retail therapy.
The Westin Singapore
We have rarely seen a more impressive entrance to a hotel than the foyer of the Westin Singapore. Located on the 32nd floor of the building, with views to both the ocean and iconic Singapore city skyline, your Westin welcome will dazzle you. Like all Westin properties, they strive to exceed your expectations and set trends; from the amazing level 32 bar, to the fun Cook and Brew Gastro Pub or the wet edge pool with a panorama of the South China Sea, each part of the hotel will leave an impression. I highly recommend upgrading to the Executive Club room for club access and a larger suite to spread out in during your retreat-style stay at The Westin.
Fairmont Singapore is conveniently located within the 5-star precinct of Singapore. Only a short walk to the Marina Bay Casino and the nearby parklands and with access to Raffles City Shopping Centre, Fairmont offers luxury accommodation, amenities, world-class restaurants and a complete shopping experience, all within walking distance from your suite.
The Fairmont Singapore gym sets the standard for hotel fitness studios around the world. With experienced in-house personal trainers and access to the cutting-edge SMARTfit Training system, a multi-sensory style of high intensity training that challenges the brain and body simultaneously, your workout is world’s away from a typical boring resort treadmill session.
Hotel Fort Canning
It’s not often that you find yourself waking up in a 100 year-old building in the middle of a major city, these days. That’s just part of the unique experience of checking into Hotel Fort Canning Singapore. Surrounded by 18 hectares of beautiful parklands, the hotel is a veritable oasis in the bustling Singapore crush. While the building is truly historic, the design features inside are modern and chic, and the on-site amenities well-thought out – from the latest gym equipment in the gym to the two chemical free pools.
Regent Singapore, A Four Seasons Hotel
The Regent Singapore offers a beautiful blend of classic and contemporary. From the beautiful complimentary petit fours and fresh flowers waiting in our Executive Suite on arrival to the complementary mobile phone to make exploring the city beyond the hotel walls, a little easier, they appear to have thought of everything to make your Singapore stay run smoothly.
