11. D'Kranji Farm Resort
The D’Kranji Farm Resort is perfect if you fancy a countryside getaway.
With beautiful villa-like accommodations tucked away from the city, you can enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle that is Singapore.
In keeping with its farm-style concept, the showers are open-air, harking back to the good ol’ kampung days.

12. Daulat Hotel
Daulat means good fortune in Malay – which is apt considering the hotel exudes quite the Malaysian vibe.
There’s something about the airy interior and spartan furnishings of Daulat hotel that reminds you of some of the idyllic towns of Malaysia, from the rattan-style lounge furniture to the off-beat fittings and decorations.
13. The Scarlet
We don’t know about you, but whenever we hear the word “scarlet”, we’re reminded of luxury, decadence and intrigue. That is true for The Scarlet Singapore Hotel.
Bathtub, grand lobbies, chandeliers and beds that look like they belong in a house for royalty. Oh, did we mention it is located in Club Street, one of the most hip watering holes in the area?
14. Hotel 1929
Set within one of the old-style shophouses that dot the Chinatown and Outram area, Hotel 1929 combines the colonial aesthetics of its exterior with a chic modern interior.
Rooms are cosy, yet the abundance of windows makes it feel spacious. And after a long day of drinking and mingling at Keong Saik, one of the hippest streets in Singapore located just around the corner, there’s no better reprieve than one that sits just a hop away.
15. Holiday Inn Express Clarke Quay
If your idea of a good night out is hopping from club to club, then Holiday Inn Express Clarke Quay should be your choice of hotel, given that it sits just along the outskirts of the Clarke Quay entertainment districts.
Rooms boast big bay windows and the infinity pool is a crowd-pleaser. There’s also a gym available for those looking to make up for all the heavy partying done the previous night.
