Not your typical ‘Netflix and chill’ staycation in Singapore.

When you love chasing thrills and being outdoors, the year 2020 can feel especially stifling.

We may not be able to travel yet but on this 3D2N Singapore staycation, we’ve come up with heart-pumping, blood-flowing, and sweat-dripping activities that are sure to spice things up!

Pick your home for the night

The Warehouse Hotel and lyf Funan are two exciting Singapore staycation spots in the Civic District. A perfect base for your action-packed 3D2N itinerary.

The Warehouse Hotel sits along the Singapore River, in a heritage building that was constructed in 1895. It retains its original silhouette, with peaked roofs and large shuttered windows. The interior is just as photogenic, adorned with chic, vintage-inspired decor.

Today, The Warehouse Hotel is a luxe hotel under The Lo & Behold Group (the same group behind Overeasy and Tanjong Beach Club)!

For this itinerary, we recommend getting the 3D2N Warehouse Staycay package. For ~S$715, you’ll get two nights in the Warehouse Loft. Plus, daily breakfast, an S$80 F&B credit, bespoke cocktails, and late checkout!

A single night in the Warehouse Loft (with breakfast) already costs S$400–S$600 on the weekends, so this two-night package is a lot more value-for-money.
