I’ve a real soft spot for Singapore, not just because it was ‘home’ for six months but because it’s a much more diverse, culturally rich and cooler city than most people think. Of course, you’ve got the glitzy marina, the amazing glossy buildings but there is so much more to Singapore, with unique experiences that I promise you’ll enjoy!

From the bustling streets of Little India, China Town, gorgeous Buddhist Temples,  Lazarus Island 🏝 and the tropical forests in MacRitchie Park, there is a piece of Singapore that’s perfect for every traveller.

One other thing that Singapore is not lacking in is places to rest your head 💤. There seems to be a new hotel springing up every week in Singapore, which makes it hard to choose the right place for you. Take a look at some of my very favourite hotels in Singapore below and book through a price comparison site like Hotels Combined that scour the best deal (money saved on hotels is more than can be spent on more things 😉 ).

1.) Marina Bay Sands

One of the most iconic hotels, Marina Bay Sands is one of the coolest places to stay in Singapore. Not just because of its marina location but because of its record-breaking infinity pool on the roof!

During my 6 months living in Singapore, I had to take a staycation in Marina Bay Sands, the rooftop pool is so surreal and an amazing place to unwind after a day exploring in the muggy heat. ☀️

2.) New Majestic Hotel

7.)  M Social Hotel

10 Of The Best Hotels To Stay In Singapore (13)

I decided to stay at the M Social Hotel on my very last day in Singapore – which was well worth it. I loved the fact that the rooms are split-level, it almost feels as though you’re staying in your own little apartment. Based is the River Valley area of the city, it’s ideally located for Clarke Quay where you can grab yourself some chilli crab from Jumbos. 🦀

8.) Lloyd’s Inn

Not just my namesake, the Lloyd’s Inn is a minimalist dream, just off River Valley Road and close to the shopping district of Orchard 🛍. If you’re looking for a more relaxed affair, head over to Fort Canning Park, just a few minutes from the hotel itself.

9.) The South Beach

The luxurious hotel is one glossy place to stay, especially if you love designer hotels and chic hotel rooms. Less than 2km from the Marina it’s one incredible place to stay. Plus, it has one epic Gin Bar, too! 🍸
