We’re already in the year-end holiday season, but you forgot to plan/didn’t want to splurge on a full-fledged overseas vacation. It’s not too late to book a quick getaway: let these stellar hotel staycation deals for SAFRA members be a gateway to new discoveries and experiences around our vibrant city state.
A stay at AMOY Hotel is like travelling back in time. Besides being housed within conservation shophouses along the original shoreline where early migrants first landed in Singapore, you even enter the 37-room boutique hotel via Fuk Tak Chi. Built in 1824 and once the oldest Chinese temple in Singapore, this unique main entrance and former temple is also Singapore’s first street museum! Amid charming heritage accents such as porcelain basins and oriental stools, each uniquely designed room is fitted with modern conveniences from rain showers to Nespresso machines.
Continue your sojourn through Singapore’s history and culture as you explore nearby Chinatown and Clarke Quay. You can also sign up for tea appreciation, cooking classes, traditional craft workshops or heritage walking tours conducted in collaboration with the hotel. A modest but very decent breakfast spread is included in your stay, and all the food options in the area will leave you spoilt for choice.
