The Most Worth-It Daycation in Singapore 2021

If you’re looking for a weekend getaway, our top picks based on best value and experience have to go to Fairmont Hotel, Four Season Hotel, and Mandarin Orchard.

For a specially curated work from hotel experience, our top choice is Pan Pacific Hotel, with rates as low as S$38++ per person.
