6 Unique Hotel Experiences in Singapore

 

Can't travel overseas?

If you missed travelling and have a big budget to blow, you might want to consider having a unique experience in Singapore instead. Granted these hotels would probably cost as much as your family trip to Japan, but since you can't travel, it could be the next best way to satisfy your wanderlust instead. Nonetheless, if you are flying business class for your holidays, these options may just be a dime in a dozen.

1 Stay in a Colonial Mansion

Fancy having a whole mansion to yourself ala Crazy Rich Asia?

While you might not be able to rent one with sprawling grounds for a 200 pax party, you could still live in a colonial bungalow dated back to 1880s. This 436 sqm colonial manor in Capella is ideal for those who want an experience from the past.

This double-storey manor comes with 3 en suite bedroom that are decked with 46 inch LCD TV and BOSE sound system. You even get a private lap pool to laze about during your stay.

Exclusive privileges include daily chef service, private car with dedicated driver, arrival and departure in a private limousine. All these for a mere $10,000 per night.

The Alternative

If the price tag is a little too rich, you could consider alternative such as the 280 sqm 2 Story Larkhill Mansion at Amara Sanctuary Resort and Spa. Price is about a third of the colonial manor. It does not have a private pool or private chef, but you get daily breakfast and Wifi.


2 Have your own Private Villa With Pool

Want to recreate your Bali experiences with a private villa and pool in Singapore?

3 Bedroom Villa

RWS has a selection of Beach Villas that would suit your need. From 1 Bedroom Villa to the opulent  731sqm'The Palace'  that has 4 oversized bedrooms and lap pool, you would find a villa that would suit your need. 

2 Bedroom Villa

The one-bedroom villa starts at around  $950 per night while a 2 bedroom sets you back at around $4.3K per night. If you are booking 'The Palace', it would be best to check with RWS on price and availability. We would imagine that it will cost upwards of 10K per night to rent the unit.


The Alternative

There are less pricey options and maybe even more private villas in the market. The 300 sqm 2 Bedrooms Villa Du Jardin that comes with a private pool at Sofitel Sentosa & Spa cost around $3K per night.

Capella has one (133 Sqm) and two-bedroom (186 sqm) villas that starts from $ 1080+ and $2800+ per night respectively.

If you are looking for value, Amara Sanctuary Resort and Spa, Amara has one (201 sqm) and two-bedroom (230 sqm) villas that comes at around $900+ and $1100+ respectively. The latter is a steal given its size and number of bedrooms.

No need to head to the Maldives for their underwater resort. You can also sleep with fishes at RWS Ocean Suite. The Ocean Suite is a  93spm 2 story townhouse that features the best of land and sea. There is even a bathtub in front of the glass panel for the not shy folks.

The upper level has an open living leading to an outdoor patio and jacuzzi while the lower level offers an underwater view of over 40,000 marine fishes in the comfort and privacy of their own suite. There are no other suites like this in Singapore.

4 Sleep on Treetops

From the Ocean, we move on to the sky. You can now experience sleeping in a 'treehouse' at RWS. This is no ordinary tree house but a TreeTop Loft. Perched 12 meters above ground and tucked away in a canopy of native trees, there are only 2 94sqm  one-bedroom lofts for you to choose.

The Extreme Wow Suite is one Wow Suite for the lack of better worlds. This 195 sqm suite is for those who love to live it up. There is only 1 King Bed but you can have a party in the suite.

Not only is the interior decadent, but there is also a DJ spinning booth for you to party in the sky. 

Round Tub

The circular bathtub is one of the kind. If you want some sun, there is a Terrace with a Plunge Pool overlooking views of South China Seas and the Marina.

At $13K a night, it is only right to Party like it is 1999

The Alternative

Hard Rock Hotel:  Same Vibe, Smaller Room


You can always book a room at RWS Hard Rock Hotel to live your rock star dreams. Rooms are a whole lot smaller. Unfortunately, they are not open for Phase 2 yet, so that dream might need to wait a little longer.


6 Be the Boss

Forget about the presidential suite, if you want the most expensive room in Singapore, it has to be the Chairman Suite of Marina Bay Sands.

Rumoured to cost a cool $20,000 a night, this 600sqm suite has a grand piano, a pool table and a million dollars view of the city skyline.  If you could miss your first-class seat to the US, this could be a possible option instead.

The Chairman Suite is so exclusive that you would have to email them to make a booking.


The Alternative

If you want a cheaper option, go Presidential instead. Many hotels have Presidential Suites.

MBS has a Presidential Suite in addition to the Chairman Suite.  If you prefer another location, head to the historical Raffles Hotel and enjoy their all suites facilities. Their 260sqm 2 Bed Room Presidential Suite is a tad cheaper at $19K per night.

If these options are too pricey, pack your bags and head to Fullerton Presidential Suite. At 201sqm, it boasts a grand piano and a fully enclosed glass balcony.  From $6800 per night, it is a steal!

If you happen to choose any of the above, congrats...You probably would be making it to the premiere issue of Crazy Rich Singaporean magazine (release date unconfirmed)!
