Fireworks are best enjoyed from the privacy of your own space away from the crowd. But the majority of us aren't blessed with a home that offers great views. The alternative? Plan a staycation and have a fireworks viewing party instead. Get away from the crowds this New Year's Eve and book a room at one of these hotels in Singapore. There's no better way to bid adieu to 2019!
Which rooms? The Bay View Deluxe Room
Topping the list for some of Singapore's best views of the fireworks is the iconic Marina Bay Sands, where all the action happens. Marina Bay Sands has rooms that offer various views, though: whether it's the surrounding bay, harbour, or Gardens By The Bay. For a front seat to the pyrotechnic displays this New Year's Eve, choose the Bay View Deluxe Rooms, flanked with floor-to-ceiling windows and the plushest furniture.
Which rooms? Premier Bay View Rooms
While staying at Marina Bay Sands is an experience in itself, its architecture is a sight to behold. Perched on the other side of the bay, you'll find The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore. Make sure you book one of the bay view rooms, so you get a view of the fireworks from the room itself, or the outdoor sundeck if you book one of the Premier Bay View Rooms. Alternatively, splurge on a romantic New Year's Eve with your special person and book the Premier Bay View Room With Jacuzzi.
Which rooms? Premier Marina Bay Guest Room, Premier Marins Bay Suite, or Presidential Suite
This hotel outfitted with edgy and quirky interior design boasts a prime location near Suntec City and has some of the best views. Be sure to book one of the guest rooms that overlook the Marina for some of the best views of the downtown. The Premier Marina Bay Guest Room, for instance, is a private sanctuary with Philippe Starck-designed interiors and luxurious amenities – all while offering a great view of the fireworks displays.
Which rooms? Marina Bay Room, Club Marina Bay Room, or Marina Bay Suite
One of the most prestigious hotels in Marina Bay, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, has views to match. Its Marina Bay Room and Club Marina Bay Room are the most popular stays on National Day and New Year's Eve. But if you prefer living large, splurge on the opulent Marina Bay Suite, with a living room and private patio overlooking Marina Bay. You can be in the thick of all the action without having to jostle through crowds.
Which rooms? King Bed/Twin Beds with Bay View, Andaz Studio Suite King, Andaz Residence Suite King or Presidential Suite
Sure, Mr Stork has a 360-degree view of the fireworks, but if you prefer having an intimate countdown, book one of Andaz Singapore's beautifully-designed rooms. Its Deluxe Rooms and Suites with bay views have floor-to-ceiling windows that frame stunning views of Singapore's skyline. And don't even get us started on the Presidential Suite.
Which rooms? The rooms on the higher floors
Want to have a New Year's Eve staycation without splurging? Destination Singapore Beach Road is the perfect in-between. It's located along Beach Road just minutes away from the culturally vibrant district of Kampong Glam, and has views of the surrounding Haji Lane area and the bay – so you can catch a glimpse of the fireworks without paying much.
