Singapore boasts a wealth of hotels to suit most wallets, but where the city really excels is in its luxury sector. The majority of the city’s top hotels can are located in the Marina Bay/Colonial District and Orchard Road areas, but those looking for some sun, sea, sand and casino action won't be disappointed on Sentosa either.
The hotels of the Marina Bay area are an excellent choice for both holiday-makers and corporate guests. They not only boast stunning views, but their central location means fantastic eating, shopping and entertainment choices are all on the doorstep. Our number one choice is the oh-so-stylish designer boutique Fullerton Bay Hotel, with its award-winning interior design, magnificent views and trendy rooftop swimming pool and bar.
Across the bay from here is the unmissable Marina Bay Sands hotel, which hogs the skyline with its three grand 55-storey towers and rooftop swimming pool, bar and restaurant complex. Also in the area you will find the grand colonial Fullerton Hotel, and international luxury favourite, the Mandarin Oriental. For those looking to escape the familiarity of international chains, then luxury boutique choice Naumi is worth checking into, while world famous Raffles Hotel needs no introduction.
Orchard Road, famed for its endless stretch of luxury shopping malls, is another epicentre for some of the best hotels in Singapore. The St Regis is the glitziest of all, with its crystal chandeliers, personal butler service and fleet of personalised Bentleys, or choose from international chain five-star favourites Four Seasons or Shangri-La.
Sentosa boasts several new high-end hotels, but Norman Foster-designed Capella is the jewel in the crown with its views out over the South China sea, faultless service and exceptional award-winning spa.
