At this point in the year, we’re all missing the thrill of getting on a plane and jetting off for a holiday. Armchair travel can only get us so far in terms of satisfying that wanderlust, but there’s something to be said about the humble staycation.

Whether it’s whiling hours away at the pool, a pampering session at the spa or treating yourself to room service, a staycation will do the trick if you’re in need of a break from the day-to-day routine. 

As of Jul 28, a whopping 139 hotels have received approval from the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to reopen for staycations. From a fun-filled family getaway to a romantic weekend escape, here’s our curated list of the most enticing hotel deals, according to occasion, hobbies and interests.
