What makes a hotel luxurious?

It all comes down to your experience. A luxury hotel goes above and beyond, and the accommodations should make you feel pampered and well taken care of!

Design

Each luxury hotel is different, but one thing that should stand out is the design. First impressions count, so a striking exterior and a well-designed interior are essential. Small touches such as art on the wall and fresh flowers or plants also elevate the atmosphere inside a hotel.

Accommodations

Rooms should be thoughtfully configured and equipped with the best amenities. Many have en suite bathrooms with upscale features, such as heated floors and towel racks, soaking tubs, and rainfall showers. Expect lush beds that provide a perfect night’s sleep and pillow menus so you can customize for extra comfort.

Services

Besides accommodations, you should expect 5-star service. From the moment you enter the hotel to when you exit with your luggage, you should have a seamless experience. Hospitality at a luxury hotel is second to none, and service is usually personalized. You’ll definitely feel welcome throughout your whole stay, whether you’re dining at the restaurant or getting a massage. Luxury hotels also typically offer concierge and butler services.

Location

Many luxury hotels are located in city centers or upscale neighborhoods. They should be easily accessible to guests and be proximate to well-known attractions in the city.

Tips on choosing the perfect luxury hotel in Singapore

Editor's Note: Photo taken from the establishment's official social account

Singapore is home to many luxury hotels, so you’ll be spoilt for choice! While all of our picks will guarantee a 5-star stay, you should also consider your needs and what you want out of the experience. Are you visiting for an event or planning one? Or are you here with the kids and want to make sure they have the time of their lives?

We’ve included some tips below from our travel experts to help you make an informed decision.

Tips from our experts

If you’re new to the world of luxury hotel stays, picking a property can seem daunting. Some of the tips below from our expert can make the process easier for you.

Tips from Dennison Wee

  1. Loyalty programs
    Hotels reward frequent visitors and loyal customers. If you sign up for status or loyalty programs with a hotel chain, your stay will be more attractive. It can get you free breakfast and potentially a room upgrade. You can also earn points for your stay.
    Look out for the properties which participate in the hotel chain with which you have status. Let’s say you’re a Marriott member. Check which of their properties offer the best value to you. For example, of the properties under Marriott, St. Regis Singapore, JW Marriott Singapore, and Ritz Carlton, the last one does not participate in their loyalty program. JW Marriott gives you access to a lounge and breakfast, while St. Regis does not have a lounge. Pick what aligns more with what you’re looking for.

  2. Points instead of cash
    Instead of paying cash, look out for ways to redeem hotel points. Loyalty programs, credit cards, or certain points sale offers can get you hotel points. They can turn out cheaper than paying cash.

  3. Credit card offers Look out for credit card promotions. Some come with offers that will make staying at luxury properties easier on your pocket. For instance, Citi Prestige offers four nights free for every hotel you book with the credit card.

  4. Agents
    Look out for luxury travel rates bookable with a travel agent such as Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts, Virtuoso, and Hyatt Prive. With them, you pay the best available rate and also enjoy extra benefits such 100 USD credit, an upgrade, breakfast, double Hilton points, early check-in and late checkout. These are especially useful and worthwhile for short stays. This allows you to enjoy VIP status with the hotel or chain.

Tips from Dania

  1. Always read reviews of the hotel you’re going to stay at to find out about any value-added offerings and services they provide. Some examples include complimentary workshops and activities, buggy or limousine rides between the hotel and places of attraction, child or pet amenities, pillow menus, lounge access with dining options, butler services and more.

  2. If you enjoy using spa facilities such as whirlpool bath, saunas and the like, you can check with the hotel whether in-house guests have complimentary access or a discounted entry fee to these facilities.

  3. Most hotels offer dining discounts for in-house guests at their hotel-operated restaurants so if you do patronize them, remember to inform the wait staff before settling your bill.

  4. During breakfast, check with the staff if the chefs can do any off-menu items. Some do, some don’t. Sometimes it depends on how busy it is that morning, but you might be pleasantly surprised - we’ve had specially prepared dishes such as seafood laksa and steak and eggs by just asking.

  5. Find out if the hotel you want to stay at has a loyalty programme and consider making your booking via this programme. Some of these are free to join and immediately come with various benefits such as early check-ins, welcome amenities, etc.

The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is a recognizable structure and one that’s hard to miss while on a scenic cruise across the Singapore River. If you’re looking forward to a 5-star hotel experience, you won’t regret booking a stay here.

The Fullerton’s picture-worthy Neoclassical exterior offers a glimpse of the Lion City’s rich history. It was erected in the historic Fort Fullerton to serve as Singapore’s General Post Office and also hold office for the governor and other government officials. The building itself debuted in 1928, but it wasn’t until 2001 that the hotel officially opened its doors to the public. Since then, it has remained one of Singapore’s most iconic sights, commanding a place in many a postcard.

In 2020, Luxury Lifestyle Awards listed The Fullerton as one of the best luxury hotels in Singapore, and Travvy Awards gave it the distinction of being the best luxury hotel/resort in Asia the same year. Whether you’re staying for a night or planning an extended vacation, you’re guaranteed an unforgettable experience.

Why it's best for events and weddings

Weddings

If you’re planning your wedding, then you’re in luck. Besides showstopping venues, they also offer wedding packages and have an in-house wedding team to help you plan your dream wedding.

While all the wedding venues at the Fullerton will no doubt leave an impression, we love the classic and award-winning Ballroom and its heavily ornamented chandelier ceiling (boasting 386,000 crystals!) and the Jade Room for its elegant design and soothing color palette. In fact, if you love the Jade Room as much as we do, you can opt for the Jade Solemnisation Package. More details (such as inclusions and the menu) can be found here.

Whether you’re hosting a business event or a wedding, you and your guests will surely enjoy a stay at this historic hotel. Consider setting them up on the property if they’re flying in for the event, or book yourself a stay for the full experience!

“I booked Marina Bay Sands as a weekend staycation to celebrate our anniversary. We requested the staff for a higher floor and a room with a great view. They did just that, and also sent over complimentary wine and cake, which was really sweet. I was able to see Gardens by the Bay and their light & sound show very clearly from the room. The best part was, of course, their Instagrammable infinity pool, which has amazing city views. At night, it’s dazzling! The pool is for hotel guests only at no extra cost.”

“We also went to their nightclub Ce La Vie, also on the 57th floor, for fancy evening drinks, and took advantage of their room service for dinner. Their room service was quite prompt and the food was delicious. But if someone wants a more pocket-friendly meal, they can head to the MBS food court. This is super easy as the MBS mall is conveniently connected to the hotel and has lots of food options. Overall, it was a weekend done right, and money well spent!”

Our travel expert weighs in on Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore

“I truly have trouble deciding which aspect was the most memorable during this stay! The extra-mile service was unbelievable, and I commend the fact that the staff here endeavoured to make every part of our stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible … The incredible Marina Bay view from our very spacious room was a strong contender too, as we would just stare out the window for ages admiring the scene. And the club lounge served a generous total of five culinary presentations a day, taking care of all our meals with pretty delicious food no less.”

Nestled in a colonial-style building, this legendary hotel opened in 1887. In those late years of the 19th century, not only did this stylish hotel become a magnet for travelers because of its grand building and hospitality, but also because of the modern comforts that it began to offer. It was the first hotel in Singapore that had electric lights and fans installed!

News of this iconic hotel in the far east traveled far and wide, and soon, it was thronging with celebrities from all over the world. Well-known authors such as Joseph Conrad and Rudyard Kipling were among its earliest guests, and later, Hollywood actors and directors became its patrons. It is now counted among the last remaining hotels from that century in the world.

Why it's the most historic

In its over 130 years of existence, Raffles Singapore has charmed many visitors. From literary luminaries such as Somerset Maugham, Joseph Conrad, Noel Crawford, and Rudyard Kipling, to celebrities such as Charlie Chaplin and Elizabeth Taylor, its star-studded guest list reads like a who’s who. What’s more, it has even been featured in films such as Pretty Polly (1967) and Paradise Road (1997).

The historic hotel has even witnessed its fair share of history, sometimes becoming a transit camp for war prisoners, and, at others, a site of congregation.

As a badge of honor, in its centenary year, the Singapore Government declared the hotel a national monument in 1987.
