Posh The St Regis Singapore

For something a little more atas, there is The St Regis Singapore, a modern-day palace. The lavishly-decorated hotel showcases one of the world’s premier art collections, with over 70 works of art by internationally-renowned artists including Pablo Picasso.

No staycation is complete without some actual R&R, so Remède Spa offers soothing treatments. The Ice Fountain, a millennia-old European bathing tradition of using snow to cleanse the body, is well worth a try.

Breathtaking Marina Bay Sands

If a view to kill for is what you’re after, then Marina Bay Sands should be your choice. With its minimalist rooms and an iconic 150-m rooftop infinity pool with a bird’s eye view, it is no wonder superstars such as Katy Perry and Jessica Alba have been spotted at Marina Bay Sands.

Marina Bay Sands’ restaurants aren’t to be sniffed at either – there’s KU DÉ TA Restaurant and Sky on 57, or celebrity chef restaurants Guy Savoy and Wolfgang Puck’s CUT on the lower levels. Throw in world-class shopping, theatre, the ArtScience Museum, Gardens by the Bay and a casino, and you’ll feel wonderfully far away from Singapore’s suburbia.
