While MBS staycation is such a Singapore’s icon (since its grand opening in April 2010) for Singaporeans, residents and tourists alike, today we’re going to expand our staycation horizon and explore some great alternatives to the MBS (Marina Bay Sands) staycation in Singapore. Let’s get you cozy up to these ideas because there are some great deals below!
SG Clean Certified: One important thing to mention here before we move on is that all of the hotels in this list have been SG Clean certified: this means that these hotels have been inspected for their hygiene and sanitation measures by appointed assessors, and that their associates are happy and healthy.
Here are some of the exclusive deals that you can count on for your next staycation in Singapore! Some cool things to note about this is that these deals come with a few things:
Across the bay from Marina Bay Sands is the Fullerton Hotel, which is a unique and luxurious staycation alternative to MBS.
One of the oldest hotels in Singapore, if you first gaze your eyes on this majestic and intricately designed hotel for the first time, you may wonder how the Fullerton Hotel came about.
For those who are historically curious, it was first built after the 1st World War (in 1928) for the purposes of housing the General Post Office (presided by Postmaster General – a grand, historical word for the head of a country’s postal services) as well as for other governmental entities that we don’t get to hear about today (e.g. High Commissioner for the federation of Malay states). This building also witnessed many of the key historical moments after the second World War as well.
For those who loves to know a little more about architecture, Fullerton hotel building was built as a Palladian style (European architecture style inspired by a Venetian architect named Andrea Palladio), fluted Doric colonnades (think classic Greek columns with shallow grooves running across the surface) and elaborate ornamentation of the Fullerton Building.
Today, the timeless grandeur of this hotel with over 400 rooms sits on the waterfront of Singapore’s beautiful river that flows across the city centres. As you step in, you’ll definitely get a sense of nostalgia, elegance and luxury.
*Romance By The Waterfront Staycation with F&B Dining Benefits & Late Check-Out (Exclusive)*
For Couples staycation with this amazing deal, you can choose to enjoy a romantic one-night stay in either:
And yes, this price includes breakfast and access to hotel facilities including complimentary parking
Nearest MRT: Raffles Place MRT
This beautiful and sophisticated hotel is a great staycation alternative to MBS staycation because it sits on the same beautiful Marina Bay that is shared by the Marina Bay Sands. When you’re here, you will find it easy to relax as you settle into the hotel with beautiful private balconies in each of the rooms!
This hotel was first opened only about 4 a decade ago (2010). Today, as you step into the hotel, you’ll experience the amazing atmosphere and aromas that will ease you into the calm and serene atmosphere that blends you into the mood to relax and enjoy the rest of your stay!
Fun fact: this hotel opened in the same year as Marina Bay Sands (MBS)
What’s exclusive about this deal is that you get to choose between 2 sweet deals:
Nearest MRT: Raffles Place MRT
Opened only at the end of 2017, this hotel (by Hyatt Hotels Corporation) boasts as its first Andaz hotel in Southeast Asia that showcases its brand’s mission to create inspiring, indigenous experiences that immerse guests in the local culture of each unique destination! Wow how about that brand mission!!
Although it is situated in Bugis (considered one of the city centres in Singapore that’s home to popular Bugis shopping malls, Haji lane and many day & night activities), the hotel’s beautiful outer facade, luxurious atmosphere, sleek & modern furnishings as well as intimate experience have and will continue to entice many to stay here!

One of the newer hotel additions (from Sofitel) in Singapore, Sofitel Singapore City Centre opened its doors in late 2017 with its unique concept that will draw you in and says best from the hotel’s voice:
Each Sofitel draws inspiration from local culture and tradition while celebrating innovation and the French art de vivre to offer a one-of-a-kind, luxurious hotel experience.
Sofitel City Centre, as one of the MBS staycation alternatives, is also a SG Clean certified hotel and approved by the Singapore’s Tourism board for leisure purposes! It is definitely such a great and convenient hotel alternative to the MBS as it sits conveniently as you exit the Tanjong Pagar MRT.
Choose either the (1) Family Staycation or (2) Couple staycation packages to stay in their Luxury Room and they come with:
Nearest MRT: Tanjong Pagar MRT
This is one of the unforgettable luxury 5-star MBS staycation alternatives that sits at the “intersection” of Singapore’s city centre and conveniently located very near City Hall MRT.
The hotel boasts itself with “timeless heritage with modern luxury”! I believe it’s not just because of the restoration of its neoclassical-style Capitol Building (1930) and Venetian Renaissance-style Stamford House (1904) architecture but because of its location and the available amenities in and near its precinct:
In fact, when you just step into the vicinity of the building, you do feel like you’ve just transcended into the luxury lifestyles of the olden days; perhaps even before Singapore became Singapore.
You have 2 options:
Nearest MRT: City Hall MRT
This beautiful 5-star boutique heritage hotel with its serene settings by the riverside of Robertson Quay will transfer you into Singapore’s past in the 1900s (when this beautiful building was colloquially known as “godown”, or warehouse).
Fun fact: it was built by a businessman who inherited a shipping company called Wee Bin & Co and was the epicentre of the Havelock road neighbour in its heyday.
Their rooms are loft-style rooms, which I find very industrious, clean and tucked in. In other words, I love their room types.
One special offer that this hotel has is the choices between a 2D/1N stay or a 3D/2N stay as part of this exclusive deal:
Here are the benefits as part of the package
Nearest MRT: Clarke Quay MRT
If you enjoy an eco-friendly lifestyle, you’d be sure to enjoy this great stay at the World’s Leading Green City Hotel at Park Royal Collection on Pickering!
