Now home to billionaires, resorts, and restaurants, Singapore’s opulence draws those looking to indulge in the luxury modern city life has to offer. Here’s how to make your experience in Singapore as glamorous as possible, whether as a vacationer or permanent tourist.

Luxury Renting

Anyone wanting to stay in Singapore will find themselves spoiled for choice in luxurious options. With the third most expensive residential property market in the world, Singapore boasts a broad range of upscale houses and flats. This makes renting a flat for a holiday or purchasing a holiday home an attractive prospect.

Some of the best areas include:

  • Singapore’s Marina Bay
  • Holland Village
  • Orchard Road
  • The rediscovered Tanjong Pagar area

If not looking to purchase a home, renting a luxury flat has its own perks. Many properties come furnished with sleek modern architecture and amenities like personal pools, gyms, and sauna’s all without sacrificing proximity to the vibrant city.

You’ll need to hire a part time cleaner Singapore service to keep your place feeling as luxurious as possible. Luckily, the city has many agencies that specialize in taking care of opulent properties.

World Famous Hotels

Instead of buying or renting a place, Singapore’s reputation for elite hotels resonates around the world. Five-star holds itself not as the exception, but the benchmark for most of Singapore’s high-end hotel experiences:

  • Marina Bay Sands resort stands above most other hotels in the world. Its shocking building suspends a 340 meter long Skypark above three tall towers. The level of service and luxury space matches the grandeur of its exterior. Speaking of the Chairman Suite, Ian Wilson of Marina Bay Sands’s team said: ‘the theme of this suite is really that of indulgence’. With a grand piano, workout area, sauna, and a personal hair salon built into one suite this supports the claim perfectly.
  • For an older more historic style the Raffles Hotel, founded in 1887, provides a different form of luxury. The birthplace of the Singapore Sling, the Raffles Hotel allows guests to enjoy a calmer form of indulgence. Rooted in its high roofed, open space design, this subdued beauty remains a source for the luxury standard fostered for well over a century.

Michelin Star Dining

Singapore contains 42 Michelin star restaurants, including two 3 star restaurants: Les Amis and Odette. Each provides a unique experience under the same Michelin star service.

  • Les Amis describes itself as trying to paint for guests a culinary picture of France. This includes a special focus not only on the food, but the wine, service, and ambiance giving it its unique reputation. First opening in 1994 as Singapore’s first independent fine dining restaurant it boasts a solid reputation across Asia.
  • Odette, a restaurant housed in the National Gallery of Singapore, began with a nice story behind its culinary mastery. The name Odette comes from the restaurant founder’s Grandmother, the woman who taught him how to cook with fresh ingredients to make beautiful dishes. Similar to Les Amis, the cuisine is French-based. However, art and interior design take a central role in the restaurant’s aesthetic, topping culinary beauty with visual beauty.

Find Extravagance in Singapore

Ultimately, Singapore has more to offer than its small size suggests. The city life of the small country means it stands as a hub for international wealth and tourism rivaled only by a few destinations in Asia.

Because Singapore invests in green technology, urban planning, and smart technology, the future for the city only looks even brighter. It will continue being a number one destination for those looking for a luxury holiday in a diverse vibrant city.
