10 Best Hotels for a Family Staycation in Singapore
In-room camping experience
Little kids may not be the best companions for outdoor camping. But if you really want to let them experience the thrill and excitement of camping, then the Ritz Kids Night Safari Adventures at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore might just be the next best thing. This immersive programme will begin the moment you check in, delighting your kids with a sleeping tent pitched in the room (complete with a night lamp!), an edible turndown amenity, a Ritz-Carlton lion beanie, and an engaging activity sheet for an in-room camping experience. They will also be entitled to redeem a complimentary scoop of ice cream daily once they finish the activity sheet – and who doesn’t like ice cream?
The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore is also just a short walk away from some of Singapore’s most popular destinations, including the Millenia Walk, ArtScience Museum, Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Flyer.
Fun game nights
If you have teens in the family, The Ritz-Carlton also offers a Game Night package for a fun-filled staycation. In fact, the hotel has its own Monopoly game edition! Players will need to strive to become a property tycoon by acquiring Singapore’s major museums, landmark attractions, as well as the hotel’s iconic art pieces, award-winning restaurants, and rooms. And if that’s still not enough, the bespoke game also features three customised tokens; the iconic Ritz-Carlton lion and crown emblem, a suitcase, and a Formula One™ racing car.

Summertime is here and that means only one thing for kids: swimming! Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa is the most perfect place for an ultimate family summer getaway, since booking a room here comes with access to Nestopia, a unique open-air play space in Siloso Beach for an adrenaline-filled, family experience. Imagine – water slides, swimming pool, playgrounds on a sandy beach! The hotel is also known for its Kids Club, offering crafts & arts activities and a spacious play area with a giant treehouse slide to younger kids. Meanwhile, you and the older kids can stay busy with other sea sports activities like kayaking, pedal boat, and more.

Just recently, Pan Pacific Singapore has opened its first-ever children’s play area slash kids club – the Urban Jungle Village. Located near the hotel’s pool area, the Urban Jungle Village is jam-packed with fun activity zones. The best part? All activities integrate thinking, learning and playing. For instance, kids can go down some animal-themed slides, climb an indoor treehouse, read books in the Forest Library, drive a kiddie car, and play in cute little teepees. The kids may even enjoy snacks that are picnic and campfire-inspired, including corn on the cobs, marshmallows, and hotdog buns.
And if you’d like to take all these fun experiences up inside your very own suite, Pan Pacific Singapore (in partnership with Kiztopia) also has these newly-launched Urban Jungle Suites for you to check out.

Discreetly tucked away on one side of Southeast Asia’s largest aquarium, Resorts World Sentosa is another best hotel for a family staycation in Singapore. Other than the fact that it’s just a few steps away from some popular family-friendly attractions in Sentosa, booking the Ocean Suite or Beach Villa at Resorts World Sentosa means an underwater view of over 40,000 marine fishes in the comfort and privacy of your own space. The room lights will automatically when the aquarium viewing panel is raised. So, it will be like you are in a theatre watching fishes (and manta rays!) swim by; your kids will surely love it!

ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove is definitely one of the best places in Singapore for a luxurious waterfront stay. A superyacht haven, the view here is just spectacular! And since the hotel is also a marina, you can take your family staycation to the next level by renting a private yacht for everyone. Maybe have a barbecue or host a party on-board? Moreover, ONE°15 Marina is also rich in kid-friendly amenities, including a spacious infinity and kiddie pool, a tennis court, a children’s library, and an arcade. If you want to cycle around the marina or just play a board game in your suite, you can also do so – just approach the hotel’s recreation office.

At first glance, The Fullerton Hotel may not look like your typical kid-friendly hotel. But the truth is, you can actually request child-friendly amenities brought to your room like mini tents and sleeping bags for glamping. All restaurants in the hotel have their own children’s menu as well, so your kids won’t have to starve themselves upon seeing all the fancy dishes served there. Also, kids will be treated with a daily ice cream pass (and cookies!) every day. Just make sure that your kids won’t suffer from sugar crashes! Else, they will miss out on the myriad of family-friendly activities in the hotel’s surroundings, including the Marina Bay Light and Water Show and other complimentary heritage tours.
