Get away from Singapore’s hustle and bustle with a family staycation at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport. The weekend Deluxe Escape Package throws in a private high tea session, and lets guests take in the magnificent view of the new Jewel Changi Airport, the country’s newest lifestyle retail destination.

Bold colours and cute prints create a family-friendly thematic room at the Pan Pacific Singapore.

Pan Pacific Singapore

Package from $510++ per night. For a maximum of two adults and two children (under 12 years old).
7 Raffles Boulevard, Singapore 039595, Tel: 6336-8111

This hotel has its own refreshing take on “child-friendly”: the Great Fun-mily Escapade Package. This kid-centric stay lets parents create a thematic room – right down to the children’s bedding, a tepee (also known as a children’s play tent) and other kids’ amenities such as bathtub toys, child-sized bathrobes and bedroom slippers. A special children’s menu is also available for the Sunday brunch buffet, which includes the option of low-table seating for the young ones.
