Staycation Ideas in Singapore: 5 New Hotels to Visit for a Mini Break
While it looks like there might be hope for international leisure travel in the latter half of 2021, a staycation is still the quick alternative for now, if you’re looking for a relaxing break from work. Luckily, there’s been an array of new and refurbished hotels in Singapore.
Whether you’re a party of one, two, or looking to have family time with your little ones, there’s a hotel for you.
1/5 The Clan Hotel Singapore
Situated at an intersection between culture and commerce, this newly-launched hotel located in the heritage-filled Telok Ayer district aims to offer a modern cultural experience. The 324-room luxury hotel obtained its namesake from the historic clan associations located along Amoy Street.
Rich with culture and personality, the hotel is both stylish and charming with its thoughtful cues to its neighbourhood. Heritage details and cultural artifacts can be found throughout, ranging from Chinese tea sets in the lobby to contemporary oriental lamps in individual rooms. These are curated and contributed by The Clan Collective, a group consisting of local craftsmen as well as cultural curators.

4/5 Duxton Reserve Singapore
Formerly known as the Six Senses Duxton and Six Senses Maxwell, these two sister properties ceased operations during the circuit breaker period. The two hotels have been recently rebranded as The Maxwell Reserve, under Marriott’s Autograph Collection range.
Occupying eight restored 19th-century shophouses, the hotel has retained its glamorous interiors designed by Anouska Hempel and Jacques Garcia.
Guests can expect east-meets-west features within the 49 guest rooms and suites. Housed within historic buildings, each room has been uniquely designed; no two rooms cut from the same cloth. SingapoRediscover vouchers are also accepted here, so make sure to put them to good use.

Come May 2021, Oasia Resort Sentosa will become the latest slice of paradise on Sentosa island. Managed by Far East Hospitality, the soon-to-open new luxury beach destination takes over the site of the former Le Meridien Hotel and Spa at the heart of the island.
The idyllic resort will feature 191 suites and rooms designed with earthy and calming tones. Neutral hues and natural wood finishing in each room project the wellness destination’s relaxing atmosphere.
