When faced with time or budget constraints for travel, staycations are a great way to surprise your partner for anniversaries or special occasions.

And since time isn’t on your side, we’ve rounded up seven unique boutique hotels in Singapore that will transport you and your partner overseas through cross-cultural influences (think vast landscapes and European architecture). Since you’re saving on flight tickets, why not treat yourself to a little more indulgence?

1) Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore — Relaxation in Thai Culture

Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore is nestled within the acclaimed Laguna National Golf Resort Club — with a stunning landscape reminding us of the rolling hills in Chiang Mai! FYI, the Laguna National Golf Resort Club requires a golf membership to enter but Dusit Thani Laguna offers mini-golf activities at only S$15 for guests.

The hotel also has an award-winning Devarana Spa, with traditional massages and herbal treatments giving you the full Thai experience 💆‍♀️ Aside from that, you and your partner can enjoy the hotel’s relaxation and lap pools, as well as a fully-equipped gym for your workouts together.

Their all-day dining restaurant serves everything from Thai to Japanese, Indian, and Mediterranean to Chinese specialities, with a picturesque view over the Master’s Golf Course!

If you’re looking for more activities to do with your partner, Jewel and Singapore Changi Airport are only a 10-minute drive away.

Cost: From ~S$234/night (up to 2 pax)
How to get there: 6min drive from Singapore Expo MRT Station (Google Maps)

2) Naumi Hotel — Unique American Influences

Naumi Hotel has 73 artistic rooms across nine levels for you to choose from — some inspired by American influences. For instance, this one (pictured above) features a guest room inspired by famous American pop art artist and film director Andy Warhol, complete with “Donna”, a limited edition Italian armchair.

So if quirky furniture and unique bathtub placements are your (or your partner’s) kind of thing, this boutique hotel might just fit the bill. The splash of colours certainly deviates from the common vanilla grey theme in luxury hotels, creating a lovely environment for the… you know what I mean 😏

What’s more, you get to soak in the panoramic cityscape from their Cloud 9 infinity pool. With romantic loungers and a poolside bar, the atmosphere for love is set. Frolick amidst glittering city lights and chill lounge music with your partner as the New Yorkers do.

Cost: From ~S$378/night (up to 2 pax)
How to get there: 6min walk from Esplanade MRT Station (Google Maps)

3) The Barracks Hotel Singapore — Bali Vibes

Think Club Med in Bali — but without hopping on a flight. The Barracks Hotel Sentosa has a range of cool facilities to indulge in besides dipping in the lap pool, I could picture myself unwinding at their Oasia spa or hitting the gym.

Head inside, where you’ll be welcomed by leather-trunked wardrobes, feather pens, and cosy plush cushions pretty different from today’s cookie-cutter modern hotel furnishings!

*Pro-tip: Make full use of guest benefits like 30% off Cable Car Sky Pass and the option of a Barracks Champagne Afternoon Tea add-on to make your staycay a little more interesting!

Cost: From ~S$700/night (up to 2 pax)
How to get there: 5min walk from Sentosa Imbiah Station (Google Maps)

4) Duxton Reserve Singapore, Autograph Collection — Asia Reimagined

The Duxton Reserve Singapore genuinely intrigues me. Its creative spin on Asian designs takes one back to a 19th-century Singapore of sorts. It’s no wonder the Urban Redevelopment Authority awarded this boutique hotel in Singapore with the ‘Architectural Heritage Award‘.

Fun fact: Each room has its own unique trait so no two are exactly the same!

Their “opium club room” (a nod towards its past as a former opium den), contains strong hues of black, gold, and yellow — finished with layers of Oriental screens and calligraphy wallpaper. In contrast, their “pearl suite” is painted in shades of cream, with classy European clothes drawers.

Onsite, there are also great food options highly recommended by guests, such as the chilli crab omelette from Yellow Pot Restaurant and the Chen Pi Collins (a Tom Collins with mandarin-infused gin) from Anouska’s Bar.

If you’re up for some exploration, the hotel is situated in a lively neighbourhood with upmarket boutiques, eateries and historic shops. It’s also within walking distance of the bespoke perfumery Maison 21G — where the hotel’s signature scent was created!

Cost: From ~S$538/night (up to 2 pax)
How to get there: 12min walk from Chinatown MRT Station (Google Maps)

5) Warehouse Hotel — Am I… Amsterdam?

In Amsterdam, you’ll see houses along its many canals, similar to Warehouse Hotel (except that it’s in front of Robertson Quay). Its chic and innovative interior also nods towards the city’s bicycle culture, with clean and concrete finishes reminiscent of bicycle garages!

*Pro-tip: The hotel has two bicycles available on a first-come-first-serve complimentary basis so you can ask the Front Desk to make your cycling arrangements.

The location makes it perfect for a sunset run along the Singapore river, followed by a relaxing swim at the rooftop’s infinity pool. You could even watch the world slow down from the ‘riverbanks’ of this boutique hotel in Singapore while engaging in slow conversations.

Cost: From ~S$200/night (up to 2 pax)
How to get there: 15min walk from Fort Canning MRT Station (Google Maps)

6) Lloyd’s Inn — Swedish Simplicity

Much like Swedish minimalism, Llyod’s Inn is simple yet beautiful! With natural colour palettes throughout its compound, floor-to-ceiling windows, and green foliage, it feels like a small cosy cottage getaway within the city.

That said, this boutique hotel in Singapore is tucked into a quieter corner of Orchard Road. So couples can choose between enjoying the dipping pool or walking down 5 minutes to Orchard Road for some retail therapy.

*Pro-tip: Don’t forget to grab your complimentary breakfast (vouchers to the nearby Killiney Kopitiam) and savour some good old kaya toast and kopi in the morning.

Cost: From ~S$227/night (up to 2 pax)
How to get there: 13min walk from Fort Canning MRT Station (Google Maps)

7) The Sultan — Reminiscent of Both European and Eastern Culture

Nestled within a 100-year-old building, The Sultan offers not just an escape from your daily routine, but a trip back to the Early Renaissance period when tall columns, broad arcs, and full-length shuttered French windows were typical in the architecture design.

But once inside, you’ll see raised platform beds and lightweight woven partitions, which are closely associated with traditional Javanese culture. So you’ll literally get the best of both worlds here!

*Pro-tip: Guests can also enjoy 15% off bookings with OH! Stories (immersive street theatre experience in Singapore) — perfect for your theatre-loving partner or if you are looking for something new to do together.

Cost: From ~S$162/night (up to 2 pax)
How to get there: 8min walk from Nicoll Highway MRT Station (Google Maps)
