Top 10 Best Luxury Hotels In Singapore

Tips : Accommodation

This article reviews the 10 best luxury hotels in Singapore, one of the world’s most glamorous cities. We have also outlined the best hotels with club lounges in Singapore if you want extra space and perks on your next trip.

1. The Fullerton Hotel, Singapore

Historic Elegance & Free Club Lounge!
The Fullerton Hotel in Singapore is one of the best luxury hotel choices in Singapore made even better because we can get you into their magnificent club lounge for free. This makes this hotel our best choice in Singapore.

The Fullerton Hotel is located at the mouth of the Singapore River and is a mass of, grand staircases, high ceilings and marble, super classy! This area was originally the heart of colonial Singapore. A nearby footbridge dates back as far as 1870.

When you stay here, you are three minutes walk from boat quay which offers a lively nightlife with lots of restaurants and bars. Beyond Boat Quay, there are other quays that again offer great options for nightlife. Chinatown and Little India are also close by if you take public transport.

This hotel is magnificent with a pillared frontage, historic dining rooms and glorious waterfront views. The hotel is actually dwarfed by the surrounding skyscrapers but offers a nice slice of history on the waterfront.

Rooms are extremely generous in size as are the bathrooms, but the highlight for me here is the pool, which is infinity in design on floor two and has great views of the river and bay.

The Straits Club Lounge at the Fullerton elevates your luxury stay further by offering breakfast, including champagne breakfast (Veuve Cliquot) afternoon tea and evening drinks and snacks all for free if you book a club room. Crucially, if you book using our luxury travel concierge can get access to this lounge included in your room booking for free.

The food at breakfast, tea and with cocktails in the evening is extensive and should fill you up. There are daily specials at each mealtime and as you would expect from a hotel of this calibre, the food quality and array is excellent. Although it is lovely to take advantage of these freebies, it is worth popping up to the rooftop bar to take in the views at least once during your stay.

From the rooftop Lantern Bar at the Fullerton Hotel you can actually look out to the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore with its ridiculous rooftop pool that spans the breadth of the top of three buildings. It’s quite something to look at.

By booking via our luxury travel concierge and you get the following benefits for free at The Fullerton Hotel, Singapore:
Upgrade at time of booking, subject to availability (up to Esplanade Room only).
Buffet breakfast daily for up to 2 in-room guests, served in the restaurant.
Commemorative historical book or limited edition framed Fullerton stamp.
Complimentary access to the Straits Club Lounge for up to two people (offering daily breakfast, tea items throughout the day and evening cocktails and canapes.)
Complimentary Wi-Fi.
Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability.

2. Four Seasons Singapore

Oasis Of Calm
The Four Seasons Singapore is one of the top hotels in Singapore. They say: “Located on tranquil, tree-lined Orchard Boulevard, Four Seasons Hotel Singapore provides a welcome oasis of calm in the midst of the city’s bustle. 25 minutes from the airport, the Hotel is strategically located steps away from the shopping, entertainment and business belt of Orchard Road, and Singapore’s first UNESCO World Heritage site – Singapore Botanic Gardens. Enjoy luxurious residential comfort and technological conveniences within our 255 spacious rooms and suites, and opt for room service – delivered in 15 minutes – or an intimate, delectable meal at One-Ninety Wood-fired Steaks and Seafood or authentic Cantonese Cuisine at Michelin Star Restaurant Jiang-Nan Chun. Light up your night with handcrafted cocktails at One-Ninety Bar and Terraza by Joseph Haywood, and then conquer the day with shopping, sights and transit just mere steps away. Post-sightseeing, gently rejuvenate your body and soul under the masterful strokes of our therapists at our award-winning Four Seasons Spa, or reinvigorate at our tennis courts (outdoor or air-conditioned), 24-hour gym and two outdoor pools – one of which is located on the 20th floor, complete with a bar and an unforgettable, spectacular view of Singapore’s city skyline.”

Four Seasons Singapore has a wonderful indoor pool and spa and gym, a guarantee of luxury rooms and service, a truly glorious example of a historic hotel in Singapore. It does not, however, have a club lounge, where everything is free once you have paid for the access and are through the door. Although we cannot offer club lounge access at this Four Seasons hotel, we can book you in with some incredible benefits.

You will benefit from the following perks at every Four Seasons Hotel including the Four Seasons Singapore if you book with our luxury travel concierge:
Breakfast for two people per bedroom.
Food and beverage credit or spa credit of USD100 per stay (where you can spend your credit depends on the hotel but the value is always $100).
Upgrade of one category, based on availability at time of check-in (this usually excludes suites).
Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability.
Complimentary basic Internet in all guest rooms.

3. Mandarin Oriental Singapore

Look At The View
The Mandarin Oriental Singapore is a brilliant luxury hotel choice, not only for its club lounge but also for the incredible views from floor-to-ceiling windows in the rooms. Your view will be either of the bay, the ocean or the city. These views along with the contemporary design with a stylish Oriental flair makes this luxury hotel a great choice.

The design of the building is an uninteresting one compared to some of the other hotel options in Singapore but the interior is breathtaking.

A nice feature this hotel is the walkway which connects the hotel to The Marina Square mall, which has loads of shops restaurants cafés and bars. Theatres and the Suntec conference and exhibition Centre also a short walk away. Orchard Road shops are about 15 minutes away by taxi.

The rooftop pool is an absolute highlight of this hotel with comfy loungers, tropical plants dotted about and fountains spurting into the pool area.

This hotel is enormous for 527 rooms and suites. The exclusive Oriental Club Lounge, located on the 19th floor, enjoys panoramic views of the Singapore skyline. The lounge has a contemporary Asian feel with floor-to-ceiling windows, wood floors and elegant furnishings.

Daily Buffet breakfast, for up to two in room guests.
Complimentary glass of champagne for two at Bay@5.
Complimentary Afternoon Tea for two at MO BAR, once during stay.

Complimentary Wi-Fi.

Is it worth paying for this club lounge? I always think there is great value booking into a club room with lounge access but if you are wanting a better deal, you get free club lounge access at the Fullerton if you book via our luxury travel concierge. We think free is a better price.

4. The St. Regis Singapore

Downtown Elegance
The St. Regis Singapore has no Club Lounge but is superbly located in the heart of prestigious downtown, with 299 elegantly appointed guestrooms and suite. With stunning vistas of Singapore’s downtown skyline, the view inside your luxurious residence is just as spectacular with full silk-shaded chandeliers, bespoke furniture, lush fabrics, French marble bathroom and state-of-the-art electronics.

7. InterContinental Singapore

Doors and tiling, in particular, have intricate designs on them.

Rooms have been put together with a more classic style and less detailing. They have decent size bathrooms with black and white tiling and local toiletry products.

The pool is an absolute highlight this to InterContinental. It is located on the rooftop with comfortable padded loungers placed on the decking, which are shaded slightly by tropical trees.

The views are not particularly noteworthy here but the food is good.

There is also a self-service buffet during happy hour which has substantial snacks like sushi, fruit and shrimps and desserts like tiramisu and cheesecake. Plus a set of three small warm canapés are delivered with your drinks.

I particularly liked the home-made Belgian style chocolate’s which are placed on a layered display case. They are good enough to take a couple back to your room in your handbag.

The Intercontinental actually offers a virtual tour of this lounge if you want to get a proper feel of the look and ambience.
