Staycation in Singapore 2020 – Approved Hotels by STB and Available Promotions

Singapore staycations 2020 - STB approved hotels with promotions and deals packages

Thanks to the ban on non-essential travel and of course the fear of catching COVID-19 on the road, many of us are feeling trapped.

The good news is that the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has approved 35 hotels for staycations. To put your mind at ease, all hotels must meet the government’s stringent requirements before being allowed to reopen, including the following:

  • Be able to limit occupancy to no more than 1 person per 10sqm (excluding staff) at any point in time, and abide by more stringent measures in areas where guests and staff spend more time
  • Reduce face-to-face mingling amongst guests, between employees and between staff and guests through staggered timing in common areas such as hotel lobbies, guest facilities and employee areas
  • Ability to disperse crowds and prevent bunching
  • Mandatory implementation of SafeEntry and encourage use of Trace Together
  • Implement rigorous cleaning and disinfecting regimes especially for high touch elements

STB approved hotels for staycation 2020

As of 29 July 2020, STB has a whopping 155 hotels on their list of approved hotels. More hotels are expected to be added to the list in the coming weeks. 

We’ve listed further below the ones that are currently offering some great staycation packages. Remember to check which are the best credit cards to use to get more savings on your hotel booking too.

What to do during your staycation

Hotel stays usually come with some perks when you dine or use facilities on the premises. So, max out on those freebies and discounts by doing the following:

  • Dine at hotel restaurants – This is an especially good deal if your hotel stay entitles you to free meals or dining credits.
  • Visit the spa – Hotel guests often get a discount on massages and other spa services.
  • Use the pool – At certain hotels like MBS, the pool is an attraction in itself, so don’t forget to pack your swimsuit.
  • Use the gym – If you don’t want to skip your workout routine and don’t mind hitting the gym on a relaxing staycation, feel free to use the hotel gym if it’s open, as hotel gyms are usually free for guests.
  • Have a drink at the hotel bar – Some of the fancier hotels in Singapore maintain iconic bars that non-hotel guests are willing to pay quite a bit to use. Enjoy a drink at the bar knowing you can retreat to your room at the end of the night. If you have F&B credits you can use there, all the better.

Safety precautions by hotels

Hotels now have to abide by a whole slew of safety precautions to make sure guests and staff don’t potentially spread the virus around. Here are some of the key measures you can expect:

  • Screening of every individual for COVID-19 symptoms before they are allowed to enter the hotel. Basically, prepare to have your temperature taken.
  • Staggered check-in and check-out timing so you don’t crowd with other guests at the front desk.
  • There must be at least 10sqm of space per guest in the lobby area.
  • Gatherings of more than 5 people in any guest room are not allowed, unless all the people in the room live at the same address.
  • 1 metre spacing between individuals in queues, seated in lobbies and in the lift.
  • Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of common areas, including high-touch areas like handrails, door handles, reception counters and lift buttons.
  • Access to shared facilities will be controlled to minimise interaction between guests in different rooms.
  • Bed linen, carpets and upholstery will be deep cleaned, and frequently touched surfaces like light switches, door handles, TV remotes and thermostats will be disinfected.
  • All guest rooms will be equipped with disinfecting agents like hand sanitisers.

Bonus: Best credit cards for hotel bookings

Before booking, check if you are eligible for credit card promotions when you book on sites like Expedia, Agoda and Booking.com (check out the links for details). 

While many hotels are now promising to match or even offer a discount on the lowest price you can find, always do the math to check whether you can save more by getting cashback through your credit card.

Also, don’t forget to click through from Shopback to earn even more cashback.
