Siestas may be uncommon in our fast-paced city but hey, we could all use a break every now and then. Whether you’re beaten from a big night out or in the middle of a post-lunch food coma, these safe havens are great for squeezing in that much-needed midday nap. We’re pretty sure they’re more effective than multiple shots of espresso.

The best places to take a nap in Singapore

Cinemas

Golden Village Zen Zones

icon-location-pin City Hall

Golden Village Gold Class Suntec sure knows how to make full use of its plush darkened theatres. During lunch hour on weekdays, it opens up its otherwise empty theatres to those looking to sneak in an afternoon nap. An extra 8 bucks even gets you an entrée from the Gold Class menu. Simply select your preferred time slot (the same way you’d book a movie online) and you're all set to doze off in a cinema – free from judgement. $10/session

Health and beauty

Palm Avenue Float Club

icon-location-pin Kallang

At Palm Avenue Float Club, you float in the private tank filled with a warm temperature-adjusted saline solution (of a salt density that’s said to mimic that of the Dead Sea), which allows one to literally and figuratively float their cares away in hour-long stints. With only a multi-coloured light for illumination, the deliberately featureless tank imparts a feeling of weightlessness, alleviating bodily weariness, and encourages a mind on overdrive to disconnect and find its peace. $90/60 minutes and $110/90 minutes, with three-, six- and 12-float packages available.

Changi Airport

We get that long flights can be draining. So instead of trudging through the bustling premises of Changi Airport half-asleep, head to the free-to-rest area if you've got time to kill before your next flight. Expect reclining seats, couches and a carpeted floors.
