Living in a metropolis like Singapore can be a little daunting – especially if you've been spending too much time on public transport, shopping centres and dining establishments. Sometimes, it feels like you just can't get away from crowds. Especially at times like these, we all need to find a sanctuary for some zen. With the various hotels and resorts in Singapore away from the bustling city, you don't even need to get on a plane to treat yourself to complete seclusion. Need a breather? Do yourself a favour and book a staycation at one of Singapore's serene and quiet hotels to get away from it all.

Lloyd's Inn
  • Hotels
  • River Valley

A stone’s throw away from the vibrant shopping district of Orchard Road and a one-minute walk from the iconic Oxley House, Lloyd’s Inn offers visitors a retreat experience like no other. Pretty imposing at first glance with its monochromatic concrete walls that provide a harsh juxtaposition to the surrounding nature and old conventional architecture, get ready to be welcomed by a sense of peaceful comfort. The rooms are bathed in soft natural light and decorated with Nordic minimalism, which makes you feel like you're being whisked away to a cosy Airbnb in Europe. The facilities aren’t grand, but the roof terrace and foliage-lined pool are idyllic enough to lull you into serenity.

Price: From $170 per night

  • Sentosa

Treat yourself to a posh staycation at The Barracks Hotel Sentosa, a heritage hideaway housed in a restored British artillery outpost on Sentosa. The resort's handsomely designed rooms and suites are a nod to its past, with luxurious touches such as dark wood grains, warm brass, leather-accented furnishing, soft cotton, and vintage trinkets. Spend the weekend basking in the pool set amidst an idyllic setting in the midst of heritage buildings.

One of our favourite hotels in the tranquil, tree-lined Orchard Boulevard, Four Seasons Hotel Singapore is an oasis of calm at the edge of the bustling shopping district. Head up to the 20th floor to take in panoramic views of the entire city, take a leisurely stroll to the Singapore Botanic Gardens, or wind down with a cocktail at the One-Ninety Bar. Planning to shop till you drop? The district's megamalls are just a walking distance away.

  • Geylang

Wander around the heritage-rich Geylang neighbourhood and you'll chance upon the Lorong 24A Shophouse Series, a locally-run, design-led serviced residence featuring curated spaces for private living. While each shophouse has a similar, carefully-conserved facade, each door opens up into an intriguingly different spatial experience – each shophouse boasting their own uniquely designed stand-out features. Live out a vintage fantasy at the Sapporo Loft, decked out in minimalist decor and a dark mellow colour palette flanked by high ceilings; or be transported to Finland at the effortlessly chic Helsinki Loft, characterised by crisp white walls, neutral accents and a number of picturesque paintings.
