We love ourselves a staycation at one of Singapore's stunning city hotels. But sometimes you just want to get away from it all – especially now that we can't get on a plane to our favourite beach destinations. The good news is that there are various hotels and resorts in Singapore that can take you away, even if just for a night or two. And while some of our beloved chalets are still not open for booking at the moment, we've listed out some for you to keep in mind.

Beach Villas Sentosa

Hotels Resorts Sentosa

Here's Sentosa's lesser-known secret. Nestled on the western tip of Resorts World Sentosa are the idyllic Beach Villas. Transporting you away from the hustle and bustle of Singapore, the resort is an exquisite series of secluded tropical sanctuaries boasting spectacular sea views, personal butlers and luxurious comforts.

Depending on your group size, choose from the one-, two-, or three-bedroom villas. Each villa boasts bright and breeze spaces, with tasteful design and gorgeous furnishings with a timber deck looking out to the glittering harbour. Or better yet, book out The Palace, a whole villa complete with a spacious living room, private entertainment room and four oversized bedrooms. It has its very own lap pool in addition to its private timber sundecks with direct access to the Beach Villas free-form pool.
