Last year was TripAdvisor’s 17th year of hosting the prestigious Travellers’ Choice® awards for Hotels.
A grand total of 7,812 properties in 94 countries and eight regions worldwide were recognized in multiple categories for their remarkable quality, service and value.
Congregating millions of reviews and opinions on the world’s largest travel platform, TripAdvisor has also gathered a list of ten hotels in Singapore that are travellers’ favourites.
Seeing as cross-border travel restrictions are still in place to safeguard our health, hotels in Singapore have been throwing out promos like Goody Feed throws out clickbait headlines to get people to come in.
Plus, from Dec 2020, your staycation stays will be subsidised by $100 per person ($200 if you’re going with someone who also receives the SingapoRediscover tourism vouchers).
Never a better time to look at what the rates are like so you can start planning for December, right?
Plus, for those who really can’t wait, there are really tempting offers available now too. Like up to 50% off.
The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore
Topping the list is The Fullerton Bay Hotel by The Fullerton Heritage, costing an average of S$768 per night on TripAdvisor.
The hotel resides within a neoclassical facade built back in 1928.
Formerly home to Singapore’s General Post Office, the Exchange Room and Exchange Reference Library, and the Singapore Club, it was gazetted in December 2015 as a National Monument.
Apart from its rich narrative and grandeur, the hotel consistently draws in troves of tourists with superb hospitality and accommodation.
Upon receiving the recognition, General Manager of The Fullerton Heritage Cavaliere Giovanni Viterale said: “The positive reviews on TripAdvisor are a testament to the dedication of my colleagues’ efforts in engaging each and every guest with true enthusiasm.”
Currently, if you were to venture into the hotel’s website, you can find rooms going for as low as $266 (under the Weekday Siesta package for locals) for their Premier Courtyard Room, including daily breakfast.
Splurge a bit more to get yourself a room with an awe-inspiring view of Marina Bay for $486 (excluding taxes).
Of course, it might be pricey now but come Dec 2020, the $200 SingapoRediscovers vouchers might just come in handy.
That’s if the rates remain the same lah. It’s the December “holidays”, after all.
You can book here.
