The Fullerton Bay Hotel
The crown jewel of the Marina Bay basin, the Fullerton Bay is beautiful and offers a fabulous panorama. The main lobby is in the historic Clifford Pier and boasts beautiful, dramatic arches. All the rooms promise a view, but the Bay View categories are sublime. Thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, you get to experience the bay’s changing faces: glittery and resplendent at night, and a beautiful vision to wake up to.

Marina Bay Sands
Snagging a pool selfie at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) is to reach the pinnacle of your selfie game – literally, because the pool deck, perched at 57 stories and spanning the length of three Olympic-sized pools, is the highest and largest rooftop pool in the world. Then there’s the daredevil allure of the infinity pool’s “vanishing edge” and the skyline below. You just gotta be creative at cropping because this is a 2,500-room hotel so the pool’s bound to be packed.

W Singapore – Sentosa Cove
The W Singapore is a sexy hotel. Beats thump through the lobby, beautiful people parade around the pool and red Prada leather adorns the lift walls. A staycation here is like peeping into the lifestyles of Sentosa Cove’s rich and famous. But the pool is where we spent most of our time: open 24/7, it pulses with life in the day and transforms into a private, sensuous and oh-so-inviting space at night.
Address: 21 Ocean Way 098374
This 20-room boutique hotel in a little forest clearing within Labrador Park is easy to fall in love with. The black-and-white villa dates to the colonial era yet offers all the trappings of modern life tastefully clad in antique or upcycled furnishing that exude old-world grandeur. But more than its romantic charm, what won our hearts was the hospitality. A wooden boardwalk leads into the villa from the carpark and sets the mood for an idyllic retreat in nature.
