Singapore has become a popular holiday destination for many all around the world.

Complete with various world-class attractions, halal-friendly hotels, and access to hundreds of exotic and exciting towns and cities to explore, Singapore is truly a must-visit destination suitable for travellers of all ages.

Known for being such a small island, it may be surprising to hear just how much there is to do, and how many breathtaking places there are to visit. Apart from exploring the various must-see attractions, Singapore is also home to three amazing hotels which we feel will be the cherry on top of your city break. For those looking to unwind and forget about the world, we’ve got the perfect selection of hotels for you. If you’re looking to relax, sit back and watch beautiful views go by as you indulge in the luxuries you desire, then keep reading and check out our favourite picks for your Singaporean getaway.

The beautiful Fairmont Singapore is perfect for those looking to be right in the heart of the city, yet still, have the chance to enjoy the luxuries and comfort you know you deserve. Set along a mall and the MRT station, enjoy easy access to all your shopping and exploring needs before swiftly making your way back to the hotel for some much-needed rest.

Each room at the Fairmont Singapore exudes sophistication and comfort, complete with your own private balcony where you can enjoy far-reaching views. Our favourite pick, the Fairmont Premier Room includes a king bed for comfortable nights in, a Nespresso, and a tropical rain shower. Topped off with a gorgeous marble-lined bath and luxurious Le Labo products, here you’ll get the best of both worlds being so near to the city yet still able to indulge in the luxuries you require for the perfect holiday.

What we love most about the Fairmont Singapore is their available halal menu, and halal certified kitchen. There is also a selection of mosques nearby for Muslim guests looking to explore and pray. The elegant Willows Steam Spa is just another luxury waiting to tempt you with its luxurious spa treatments and facilities; the perfect way to unwind after a day on your feet.

The rooms at the Marina Mandarin hotel offers luxurious finishing touches, sophisticated designs, and the warmth of the friendly Asian hospitality. Our preferred room, the Executive Deluxe Marina bay view room provides you with gorgeous views of the Marina Bay, a private balcony to enjoy the views from, a welcome basket of fruits to sweeten up your arrival, a marble bathtub, an outdoor mineral pool to relax in, and a halal-certified halal kitchen offering scrumptious halal cuisines and Singaporean dishes.

    Halal doesn’t apply to me but it’s good to know Singapore can be suitable for those with such a requirement. The Marina Mandarin looks gorgeous and it’s sweet you get a welcome basket on arrival. It’s the location that seems particularly appealing and convenient if you intend on doing lots of leisure and touristy activities while you’re there. I’ve never known of a place like the Naumi offering a women’s only floor. Not quite sure how I feel about things like this but on the other hand it’s somewhat reassuring that if you’re a single female travelling you might be made to feel a little safer.

    There can be few cities that work better on this planet. Everything works well, everything is on time and everywhere is so clean. Singapore’s created it’s own take on great American customer service that is delivered with a charming friendly Asian smile. I go there sometimes on business and I’ve got to say that it’s the only place I go to where I genuinely look forward to calling in on. It’s becoming like a second home to me.

    Don’t forget that Singapore makes for a great landing pad in South East Asia. You can spend a few days relaxing in style in the city’s top hotels. Even taking advantage of the fantastic value bespoke tailors before flying on elsewhere. There are plenty of bargain flights available for exploring the likes of Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia etc. Then on your return to Singapore your stylish (bargain) garments will be ready.

      I was thinking some similar while reading this. I was recently in Malaysia and wanted to visit Singapore, but flew to Vietnam instead because of the heat. But the region is definitely a great area of the world to see the merging of many different cultures. That was a pleasant surprise for me in Malaysia, and I’m sure Singapore offers something like that as well. Very easy to get to Malaysia by crossing the bridge! :)

    I’ve been to Singapore many times and I’ve enjoyed this very urban but chill city state. For having such a small land area, the country has managed to have lots of tourist attractions, residential and commercial areas, and green areas. And since it’s a melting pot of cultures I would expect it to have halal-friendly places as well. And while I’ve been there may times, I haven’t had the opportunity to stay at any of these halal-friendly hotels. It’s nice to know that such luxury brands offer halal-friendly services and facilities.
