Grand Park Orchard

Love to shop? This chic lifestyle destination puts you right in the heart of Singapore’s prime shopping belt. Grand Park Orchard is one of Asia’s leading design hotels and continues to impress with its show-stopping herringbone design exterior glass façade and media wall.

When you’re hungry, a plethora of dining options await at the hotel’s doorstep, or simply head to contemporary Cantonese restaurant Mitzo on level four for a bespoke cocktail programme and some of the best char siew in town.

InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay 

The InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay combines luxury with the comforts of home — to be precise, a sophisticated waterfront home. Featuring a host of thoughtful amenities that are functional and practical without being extravagant, think of this place as a chic condominium rather than a hotel. There are gourmet teas from Monogram, a basic cocktail kit with all the tools and ingredients you need, and of course, fluffy bedroom slippers. You won’t want to miss out on the Club InterContinental experience, where you can pretty much get breakfast, afternoon tea, and cocktails and canapés in the evening. Other highlights include the first-floor Publico restaurant, which dishes out excellent pizzas and pastas, as well as the cosy Marcello for speciality coffee and drinks.
