eGSS Has Staycation Packages From $328
UPDATE (1 Oct): A previous version of this article was published on 29 Sep. We’ve updated the info on the deals available below.
We may be familiar with the traditional bargain-hunting experience when it’s the Great Singapore Sale season.
But since the event – now known as eGSS – has gone virtual this year, you can expect a larger range of discounts out of the retail scene coming your way.
Surprise, surprise. Hotel stays & gourmet dining are part of the deal too, thanks to Resorts World Sentosa coming onboard as an event partner.
eGSS is a month-long affair that’s ending soon on 10 Oct. Before then, we’ll spill the deets on other gems to look out for other than affordable clothes & furniture.
Book a staycay at Resorts World Sentosa
Think Sentosa and your mind will envision an idyllic getaway only tourists would visit. With your hard-earned salary, an overseas trip seems more fulfilling, but since leisure travels are still on hold, Sentosa is your next best bet.
An overnight stay at Hotel Michael or Equarius Hotel on a weeknight would serve you well as a quick escape from the overwhelming WFH workload.
With a Deluxe Room going for $328 nett at either hotel under the 2D1N Indulgent WONDER package, you can take that much-needed breather.
Before you resign yourself to a day of Netflix and chill during the staycay, plans have already been made to make your stay as stress-free as possible.
Here’s what it entails:
- Daily breakfast set for 2
- $50 credit for dining in
- Free parking
- 2 S.E.A. Aquarium one-day adult tickets
- Sentosa Nature Discovery trip
Admire over 100,000 marine animals at S.E.A. Aquarium
Since the package comes with 2 tickets to S.E.A. Aquarium, head over to the calming underwater realm where you can marvel at over 100,000 marine animals.
Pause at the gigantic tank in the centre of the tour and be mesmerised by the creatures swimming by so peacefully. Don’t forget to snap a picture with your low-light camera.
We trust that we don’t need to be anymore pacific about this oppor-tuna-ty. But you might wanna take note of their new operating hours now — Thursdays to Sundays, 2pm-9pm.
Win bae over with a romantic night at Beach Villa
If you have some leftover dough saved up from ‘Circuit Breaker’ and feel like being a baller, treat your significant other and yourself to a romantic stay at Beach Villa.
Hearing the soothing sound of waves would surely make you reminisce of a pandemic-free world where Bali’s oceanic views were a 3-hour plane ride away.
The 2D1N Indulgent LUXURY sets you back $888 nett, but comes with:
- Daily breakfast set for 2
- $200 credit for dining in
- A bottle of premium wine
- One-way limousine transfer
- Free parking
- Sentosa Nature Discovery visit
The money is well spent since you’ll get to feel like you’ve escaped to a tropical island far away to rekindle your romance.

Rediscover the beauty of our garden city
Whether you’re yearning for a romantic getaway with bae, or something that’ll make your WFH life a little easier — everybody can benefit from staycations & retail therapy.
2020 has been a tough year. Even though it felt a little mundane during quarantine, we’ve survived a semi lockdown and having to adjust to WFH.
Give yourself a pat on the back for doing what’s necessary to stay safe. Now that Phase 3 is on the way, there’s no harm in treating yourself before eGSS ends.
