5 Great Staycation Venues
We all love a great vacation. With the volatile situation and worldwide travel restrictions complicating the process, it’s no wonder that staycations are all the rage now.
Here are five great staycation venues in Singapore that are perfect for your next weekend.
The Warehouse Hotel
The Warehouse Hotel isn’t just any luxury hotel – look beyond the high ceilings and pendant lights at the lobby, and you’ll be surprised to find decor details that have a unique Singapore touch.
Books related to Singapore history, art and culture can be found in the hotel’s lounge area, and you’ll find your room’s minibar well stocked with locally produced products such as gin from local distillery Paper Lantern. The ceramic tableware at the dining areas is also handmade by local kiln Mudrock.
History buffs will be intrigued by the reception area in the hotel lobby. It features an installation-cum-retail space that showcases a collection of objects that allude to The Warehouse’s sordid past, as well as any new collaborations they have with Asian artists.
