Now that Chinese New Year is over, couples are getting excited and preparing for the upcoming Valentine's day. In Singapore where many singles continue to stay with their parents until they are married, planning a staycation is a popular idea for couples to get some alone time together.
There is a wide range of hotel prices for staycations in Singapore, especially so that in the last 5 years, we've seen a proliferation of boutique hotels that offer lush interiors without the price tag of large chain hotels. Since the main aim of a staycation is to get some alone time together, you probably do not need the central location and the added recreational facilities that large chain hotels have.
If you are planning to book a hotel for the Valentine's day weekend next week, you'd better hurry since the day is getting pretty close. Here, we've listed a number of staycation deals offered by hotels here in Singapore.
Imagine walking into a room decorated with rose petals, a free bottle of wine and including an in-room dining set menu for two. The Romance at The Fullerton package is literally an all-in package that suits couples who just want to spend all their attention on each other on this special day without having to step out of their hotel room.
And that's not all – you get to enjoy the morning after with a complimentary breakfast for two at the Town restaurant to finish the delightful weekend. Prices start at S$478.
Hotel Fort Canning
If you are looking for a hotel that's convenient to get to but still offering the out-of-town vibe, head down to Hotel Fort Canning for your Valentine's day staycation. The “Eden of Love” package comes with a night's stay at the deluxe room with a unique open bathtub concept where you can take your bubble bath steps away from the bed! Little surprises like a free bottle of Prosecco, berries, stalk or rose, a pair of love bears just sweetens the deal further. You also get complimentary wines and canapes at the private lounge, as well as enjoy a 15% off the 4-course Love Blossoms Valentine's Day set dinner. Prices start at S$395.
