Singapore’s best hotels in 2018 for…

By Nadia Sheng,

Here are the best hotels in Singapore based on travel group type, ranging from families to friends. Based on the hundreds of Singapore hotels, these are our top picks for 2018!

Families

with teens

Hard Rock Hotel Singapore

Why it’s the best: Resorts World Sentosa’s Hard Rock Hotel is Singapore’s best hotel in 2018 for family fun. The Deluxe Twin is recommended for families with teens while The Deluxe Suite for those with infants as the latter has a bathtub. Besides being treated like rock royalty by the fun-loving staff of the super-cool Hard Rock brand, it’s made our list for being the only hotel in Singapore with its own private man-made beach and the closest hotel to both Universal Studios and the S.E.A. Aquarium. Its superior water slides and magnificent outdoor pools will certainly keep an energetic family entertained on a weekend getaway.

with infants

InteContinental Singapore

Why it’s the best: The InterContinental Singapore is the best all-rounded hotel for families, particularly those with infants*. The Club InterContinental rooms are recommended for families as club room benefits are comparable to frequent flier benefits – the check-in queue just got a lot shorter with a dedicated check-in counter for club rooms. Breakfast in the club lounge is also much nicer. Should families have special dietary or other requests they can be sure the five star will cater to their requests just as any luxury hotel would. It bears saying that the hotel is lauded for its exceptional service and cleanliness – two of the most important qualities families look for in hotels.

*Baby tubs and amenities are available on request, plus there’s nothing in the mini-fridge so baby bottles can be stored easily.

Couples

that are longterm

Four Seasons Singapore

Why it’s the best: Stay at the The Four Seasons with your loved one in a super-spacious Deluxe Room on the “couple’s floor” (11th floor) where you won’t even have to place a DND sign on your door as staff go out of their way not to bother you. You’ll love the sexy marble bathroom with its deep soaking tub and the luxury spa for its couple’s treatments. Did we mention there are many topnotch restaurants for date night? Or, for you introverts, how about the equally as romantic room service (there’s a special 15-minute menu – beats even the fastest food delivery cyclist)!

Warehouse

Why it’s the best: This gorgeous new loft hotel has made our best hotels in 2018 list after an impressive first year in operation. If you don’t already live with your partner the homey, urban, River View Loft, decorated in pretty much the same accessories from your favourite designer furniture store, will give you the impression you are at home. How romantic. Tipped off by former guests who’ve celebrated special dates here, the cocktails and food are sublime – what food sophisticates like yourself would expect to nosh on, on any given date night Friday. PS we’re in love with the localised Popiah-style birthday cake!

Friends

that are groups

Marina Bay Sands

Why it’s the best: Quite honestly, MBS would have fit in any of our travel-group category, but we’re sold on the idea of going as a group of friends (my besties pop to mind when I think of who I’d enjoy going shopping, eating, dancing, and general galavanting with). And I don’t know about you, but me and my best friends meet weekly for dinner and there’s never enough time to catch up. We could do with a day of pampering and sleepover and then wake up to brunch (instead of dinner)! Stay in a room on a higher floor (both city and garden views are amazing), order champagne, and have a girl’s night in!

SO Sofitel Singapore

Why it’s the best: Sophisticates that want to see and be seen, the SO Sofitel Singapore is stomping ground for you and your kind. Are you looking for the ideal hotel to take a friend who needs a night on the town (or do you just generally prefer a social hotel, like we do)? With pool and garden parties, a DJ staffed rooftop bar, and “exquisite culinary experiences”, this luxury boutique is ideal for readers dreaming of being whisked away to a magical weekend of parties and fluffy beds fit for fictional princesses without having to leave the country. Splurge on the SO Lofty room with balcony and tub which fits up to 3 guests (yes, we’re referring to the size of both the room and the tub)!
