1. Shangri La Hotel, Singapore - Experiential staycation of adventure

Best places for an unforgettable family staycation in Singapore

At Shangri La Hotel, Singapore, the Themed Family Suite sparks the imagination of the little ones who would become young explorers the moment they step into their rooms at any of the five themed suites. Children can explore the wilderness of the safari or feel like royalty in the suite made to ignite the magnificence of a castle. They can also play astronaut in a room from outer space or dive into the underwater caverns of ocean blue. There is also a chance to live like a king of the jungle in the treetop-themed suite!

The kids’ room, where the theme really comes to life, is connected to the parents’ room through a secret tunnel. While there is a full-sized sliding door to divide the two rooms, your kid is not going to use that - we are with them on this one!

Located on the ninth floor of the Tower Wing, each suite perfectly fits two children and three adults (there is the Murphy’s bed in the kids’ themed room for your helper). All families have access to a shared pantry that is packed with the essentials they would need for your stay, including the washing machine, iron and hot/cold water dispenser.

The family concierge will also complement your staycation at Shangri La Hotel, Singapore - car seats for travel, strollers and travel cots are provided upon request as well as toys, baby bibs and sterilisers.

This is not all - being a sought-after kids friendly hotel in Singapore, this hotel puts the family at the heart of the experience. When you book a Themed Family Suite, you are given unlimited access to Buds, which is an indoor and outdoor play space spanning over 1,872 square metres, the first among the hotels at the city-centre. Kids can bake, learn music and immerse themselves into the world of storytelling. Adding on to the fun, there is a pirate ship playground and a splash pad at the outdoor vicinity of the playspace.

By far one of the best kids friendly hotels on our list, Shangri La Hotel, Singapore takes family staycation to a whole new level! This also means more time for you and your better half while your kids have a joyful time on the hotel grounds.

2. The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore - For the inquisitive minds

Best places for an unforgettable family staycation in Singapore

Another fantastic staycation option in Singapore lies in the luxurious Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore. Packaged as The Ritz Kids Night Safari, the hotel melds creativity and adventure to offer a kind of hospitality like no other.

Kids will find a glamping set-up ready in the Premier Suite, a sleeping tent that comes with a plush mattress, feather duvet and a night lamp. This is where your child turns this in-house camp into his/her secret enclave, because, after all, a child’s imagination knows no boundaries. Not to forget, the cute lion beanie makes for a comforting snuggle at bedtime!

The gastronomical delight at Ritz-Carlton is also another reason why locals find it a kids friendly hotel in Singapore. Apart from the nutritional meals served from the child’s menu as part of the daily breakfast for the family, kids are given a passport and discovery map where they can redeem a scoop of ice cream at the hotel’s premium buffet restaurant Colony after obtaining five stamps. This allows the family to roam the compounds and enjoy the amenities while the kids embark on a mini adventure with the map.

It would be even more exciting to bring your child over to Ritz-Carlton during his/her birthday - there will be a surprise birthday cake all prepared to give your little one a memorable treat.

3. Swissotel Merchant Court Singapore - A home away from home

At Swissotel Merchant Court, the family staycation package may look similar to the one offered by Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore for their themed kids rooms but believe us, they are different. If Shangri-La brings kids on an imaginative adventure, Swissotel takes the children to a home away from home. Yes, we mean it.

As a connected room to the Family Suite, kids will step foot into a cosy enclave of warm colours and inviting designs that create an atmosphere of a humble abode. Of course, a staycation is meant to take you away from the realities back home but time spent at Swissotel is meant to give families a simple yet memorable homestay without having to do the work. Laundry, food and housekeeping will be at your service. You can have a good time away from your kids who will be treated with age-appropriate toys and video games set up in their rooms before you arrive (tell the hotel the age of your kids before coming down).

There are water slides at the hotel’s swimming pool too, so kids can jump into the blue oasis when they get too tired from their indoor games. Kids friendly meals can also be made available at the Swiss Merchant Court Singapore!

4. Village Hotel Katong - Bringing back the family time

We thought the Peranakan-themed Village Hotel Katong deserves a mention despite being lesser known as a kids friendly hotel in Singapore. While it may not offer extraordinary adventures like those in Shangri-La, Swissotel and Ritz-Carlton, it does offer a decent escape for families with kids.

Furnished with two double-beds, the cosy Family Room comes with all the amenities you would need for a comfortable stay. Your kids will also be treated with a game set of the older days which would serve as souvenirs. The pool is also available as part of the package so be sure to pack in the swimsuits before heading down!

On top of that, the halal-certified Katong Kitchen at the hotel whips up an impressive spread of Peranakan and international cuisines which you and your family will thoroughly enjoy.

5. Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Singapore - Up close with the runway

While the Crowne Plaza at Changi Airport may not necessarily have a special package for a family staycation in Singapore, it still deserves a mention for it being the gateway to one of the world’s busiest runways!

Best places for an unforgettable family staycation in Singapore

When you book the Premier Room with the Runway View, you get to see the planes land and take off right from your rain shower or bathtub, or when lying in bed adjacent to the floor-to-ceiling windows. Get your kids to count the number of planes that have landed and taken off, or play a “recognise-the-airline” game and see who wins!

6. Gallop Kranji Farm Resort - Countryside experience for the city kids

A staycation at Gallop Kranji Farm Resort offers a countryside experience that is rare to find in Singapore. Of course, anything that is different from the ordinary city or modern neighbourhood life will entice the kids so this one is worth the dollar!

The outdoor activities at the resort are one you can never find at any other kids friendly hotel in Singapore. While you take your relaxing dip in the jacuzzi pool, you can let your kids try out prawning, feed some rabbits and even ride a pony! There is also a herbal farm and beehive tour. Kids can also learn from aquaponics experts and understand how it is now an important agricultural system to support domestic food production and enhance national food security.

7. One 15 Marina, Sentosa Cove, Singapore - All things luxuriously marine

Sentosa Cove is a residential district off the Southern coast of Singapore on the tourist-favourite Sentosa Island. As a waterfront lifestyle destination to complement the experience of the prestigious enclave, ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove makes for a great staycation idea if you want to travel out to somewhere extraordinary without having to stamp the passport.

Among the nautical-themed rooms and suites, the Marina Family Room is what you need to book for a staycation in this wondrous hotel in Singapore. The room is packed with kids friendly amenities such as a children’s bunk bed and toys set against a marine theme, and a balcony oversees the picturesque view of luxury yachts that make for a perfect waterfront morning greeting.

Apart from a splendid dining experience offered by several restaurants including WOK°15 Kitchen and Latitude Bistro, kids and older children can enjoy the range of games at the in-house arcade. The playground is also fit for younger kids and the artistically-furnished playroom will be ideal for toddlers.
