Best Singapore Luxury Hotels

Bustling Singapore is known for its lavish luxury hotels, availing discerning travelers of the finest in sumptuously appointed guestrooms, world-class restaurants and state-of-the art amenities. City visitors can choose from a vast array of sprawling pleasure palaces, historic havens and intimate boutique gems.

Classy contemporary 5-star hotels abound, loaded with impeccable style and indulgent comforts. With a prestigious downtown address, the St. Regis is a gleaming bastion of luxury housing one of Asia’s preeminent art collections, while The Regent Singapore mingles the best of east and west in an elegant marriage of modern and classic decor. The highly acclaimed 5-star Marina Mandarin Singapore boasts a soaring 21 level atrium, spectacular views of Marina Bay and direct access to the posh shops of the Marina Square shopping mall. Extravagant architecture, magnificent modern interiors and a hip rooftop bar are the hallmarks of the Fullerton Bay Singapore. The Four Seasons Singapore is a bit of Eden just minutes from the Financial District featuring high ceilings, shimmering chandeliers and an exquisite collection of over 15,000 pieces of museum-quality Asian art. Soaring and spectacular, Marina Bay Sands is one of Asia’s premiers leisure and entertainment destinations, crowned by the incredible Sands Sky park, a glittering entertainment mecca sprawling some 200 meters above the city.

The historic luxury hotels of Singapore offer a quieter, more intimate ambiance, evoking the understated elegance of the city’s colonial era. For over 120 years, iconic Raffles Hotel has offered exemplary service, fine accommodations and seats for cocktails at the legendary Long Bar, former watering hole of Rudyard Kipling and Somerset Maugham. Older sister to the Fullerton Bay Singapore, the glorious neo-classical 1928 Fullerton Hotel boasts a glamorous harbor front location in the Central Business District, richly appointed rooms and suites and some of the finest dining in the city.

Sometimes the best things come in small packages, and Singapore’s growing legion of luxury boutique hotels proves the old adage true in a big way. Snuggled among the super-chic shop houses of Chinatown, the New Majestic is loaded with idiosyncratic charm. Luxurious, individually themed rooms are designed by some of the biggest creative names in the city, swimmers can be viewed through underwater portholes, and whimsical artworks are tucked into every nook. The charming Capella Singapore resort fronts the South China Sea, with 30 lush acres dotted with sculptures and roaming peacocks. Superior golf and world-class dining are available, and accommodations come in the form of sumptuous suites, manors and villas, all with their own plunge or lap pools. Seductive, sexy Scarlet’s 80 rooms boast a luxurious boudoir flair, the lounge is lush and dimly lit, and hip rooftop Breeze is just the place for a nightcap. Futuristic Wanderlust perches on a bustling street corner in Little India and boasts 29 outrageously quirky rooms put together by four of Singapore’s cleverest designers.
