Hotels in Singapore offer up a variety of options that will fit any family. Whether you have younger children that need places to play or you have slightly older children that want a more central location, there are plenty of options. Here are our recommended hotels in Singapore:
1. Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort and Spa
Another great option is the Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort and Spa. This is one of the most gorgeous hotels in Singapore. It has a beautiful location atop a cliff and is spread out over a whopping 27 acres, just near everything, but far enough away that it is peaceful. There is plentiful outdoor activity area, including tennis courts, walking paths, and mountain biking trails. You’ll have access to a large pool as well.
For adults, there is a full-service spa, bars, and a daily buffet. Rooms are outfitted with every amenity that you could want.
2. Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa
With two family-friendly options in Singapore, the Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Resort is the one we will highlight from this chain. Most chain options will have all the tools you need to make children of any age comfortable there. This is a fantastic option for children who are always on the go. They have a jungle themed play area, a huge tree house, activities, crafts, a flying trapeze, direct beach access, and specialized nights just for kids. Simply put, it is a wonderland for children.
All of this comes at an affordable price, especially if you go for the Deluxe Pool View rooms.
For parents, shopping, restaurants, and spas are nearby
3. Marina Bay Sands
If you’ve ever looked at coming to Singapore before, the Marina Bay Sands hotel is likely one you have seen. It has probably the most famous outdoor amenities in the world, including this gorgeous infinity pool that offers unparalleled views around Singapore. It is more of a luxury option, but it is well worth it.
The location of the Marina Bay Sands is difficult to beat, as it has many dining options, shopping choices, and an MRT station nearby. It has museums, Gardens by the Bay, and the Sampan boat rides within a few minutes’ walk. You’ll even be able to find theater, musicals, and other entertainment shopping options nearby.
If you are travelling with a family, you’ll get a wide range of room options, including suites and traditional style hotel rooms.
4. Festive Hotel
Located on Sentosa Island and situated close to Universal studios and all of the main attractions in Singapore, you are hard pressed to find a hotel that offers more for the entire family. The rooms offer up plenty of sleeping spaces for all children, so no one has to be on the floor or on an uncomfortable sofa bed. If you have younger children, cribs are available.
Activities for children range from sports and water activities to arts and crafts. The kid’s pool ensures that they can have fun without mom and dad creeping around.
5. Village Hotel, Bugis
For families that want a little bit of whimsy and a fantastic location, the Village Hotel Bugis is a premier option. Located in Kampong Glam, it is an extremely colorful part of the old Malay area that is quite close to Little India. It is a short walk from major MRT lines, making it easy to get just about anywhere you want to go.
It is great for travelling in Singapore with children because there are multiple restaurants, a shopping center, and a swimming pool. There are even kids themed rooms that have characters that kids will recognize, including Cars and Princess Sophia. These rooms will have all the amenities you need and even some extras, like a coloring book and television channels. If you have an infant, you can get special gear as well.
6. Hotel Fort Canning
Hotel Fort Canning is another popular option, especially for people who are interested in history. Located right near a historical site, it is about 5-minutes away from fantastic food and shopping locations. Still, they have many things directed right toward children, from suites and dining options that are specialized for them to activities they can do – including a daily “meet and greet” with other kids.
Everything is a little slower than the rest of the city, but you still get that metropolitan feel.
