A dizzying mixture of old and new, Singapore is where tradition meets modernity. Centuries-old temples and buildings from our colonial era sit alongside financial towers, incredible attractions and air-conditioned shopping malls. It’s these vivid contrasts (and the multitude of great things to do, of course) that attract millions of visitors to the Southeast Asian city-state each year – and many more find themselves passing through en route to Europe or Australia. If you need a place to stay at or near Singapore Changi Airport, look through our list of the best airport hotels that the city has to offer and get ready to rest your head in comfort and luxury.

1. Crowne Plaza

A reliably luxe option at Changi International. From the lattice-covered exterior to the chicly decorated foyer, this place screams casual opulence. All rooms have a minibar, flatscreen TV and en-suites with rain showers, while there’s a landscaped pool to enjoy outside. A covered walkway takes you straight into Terminal 3, while if you’re flying from Terminal 1 or 2, you can simply climb aboard the monorail and zoom off to your destination.

The mood? Laid-back luxury.
