Staycation-Friendly Hotels In Singapore
One of the simple pleasures in life is going on a staycation.
You rest on a bed of crisp, white sheets and a buffet spread of international cuisine awaits you every morning; there’s no need to feel guilty for not making the bed too.
But some of us are ready to move on from the usual hotels we spend our short getaways at.
Here’s a list of boutique hotels to help you plan your staycations this festive season.
1. The Duxton Club
The Duxton Club, A Luxury Collection Hotel is the first hotel of Marriott International, and it’s made its debut in Singapore in 2017.
