Here’s a specially curated list for you to consider With more than 170 hotels now approved to take in leisure guests for stays, Singapore hotels are offering a plethora of packages to entice Singapore residents to do a staycation. While the post-Covid-19 staycation experience will definitely be different from what you used to know, it’s still at least a break from your day-to-day work-from-home life. Here are some of the best deals you can take advantage of: Shangri-La Singapore – from S$319++ per night If there’s a time to check out one of Singapore’s lushiest’s resort-in-a-city, this is probably the best time.

Singapore has reopened for staycations: first five hotels approved to take guests

Four of these hotels are on Sentosa, plus a serviced apartment property in the city It’s been three months since hotels have shuttered their doors to guests – both local and foreign – so it’s pretty exciting that hotels are starting host guests who are staying for leisure again. After all, most hotels in Singapore have been procured by the government earlier in the year for returning Singaporeans and residents to serve their ‘stay-home notices’ (SHN), or isolation, to contain the possible spread of Covid-19. Since 3 Jul, STB has opened applications for hotels who wish to accept staycation guests once more. While approvals officially was going take up to two weeks, but it seems like they are working pretty quickly given that the first batch of five hotels is now announced. This page will be updated as and when new hotels are added to the list. As of 9 Jul, the approved hotels include: lyf Funan Singapore W Singapore Sentosa Cove Crockfords Tower (Resorts World Sentosa) Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa ONE15 Marina Club …

50% off Hilton rooms in Japan, Korea and Guam: 4 days only!

Hilton is running a flash winter sale for the rooms in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and Guam for four days only, from 26 November 2019, 1pm (Singapore time) to 29 November 2019, 1pm (Singapore time). While the marketing spiel reads 50% off, bear in mind that this discount is off the flexible rates and not the sale rates. Also, non Hilton Honors members will only enjoy 40% off. On top of that, you will be slapped with other terms, such as non-refundable terms. While the sale period is tight, you have some flexibility in your travel dates. You can stay between 26 November 2019 and 30 June 2020, giving you quite a fair bit of dates to play with if you haven’t lined up any plans for the first half of next year. Obviously black-out dates do apply, and I will expect that the sakura season will be excluded given the traditional high footfall. What’s good? Tokyo traditionally has one of the most expensive hotel rates in Asia, so this is a good time to …

REVIEW: W Taipei, Wonderful Room

tl;dr: If you need to try a W Hotel in the city for the first time, this is a good choice Small but very comfortable rooms by W’s standard Great proximity to shopping areas at City Hall and Zhongxiao Road Full spa facilities, including jacuzzis, steam rooms, sauna and even a cold plunge pool Small pool surrounded by Kitchen Table and Woobar, not a fantastic location On-property signature restaurant serving up Chinese cuisine Over the weekend that I was in Taipei, I took advantage of W Taipei’s Super Sunday special offer to bag another stay, in order to requalify for my SPG Gold next year. A little more about the promotion: This is not listed on Starwood’s website, but instead have to found on W Taipei’s offer page itself. When I reserved, the going rate was about NT$5,800 for a night’s stay with breakfast, which is arguably one of the cheapest rate you can get a W hotel stay at. Definitely worth the splurge even if you are usually a budget traveller. W Taipei is …
