We don’t know about you but we’ve got a strong urge to take a break from the hustle and treat ourselves to a nice vacation. We, Singaporeans, are blessed with the strongest passport and the best airport in the world but it’s nice to be a tourist in our own country sometimes. We should take the chance to explore unexpected nooks and crannies and gain a greater appreciation for our history and culture! We can even go an extra step and book a stay at a local hotel for the full tourist experience. At YOTEL Singapore, you’ll feel like you’re in a different world without having to spend on air tickets!The purple-themed hotel is the perfect modern getaway for us, Singaporeans.

90% of us can’t afford living in town but you can get a taste of it if you book a stay at YOTEL Singapore! Located right in the heart of Orchard Road, you’ll be just steps away from all the shopping centres that line our shopping district.


Even though you’re in the heart of town, you’ll feel like you’re in whole other world when you’re inside YOTEL Singapore because it looks so futuristic!

Check-in at any of the self-help kiosks that will remind you of the ones that we see at Changi Airport Terminal 4! This means that you won’t have to wait in line to get your room keys and can also have a little taste of what it’s like to depart from T4 without actually having to buy tickets. Don’t worry, if you need assistance, friendly staff will be there to help you.

Not only do they have self check-in kiosks, all their rooms have adjustable SmartBeds, which means that you can be in optimal position whenever you’re watching a show on their 40″ HD Smart TV, reading a book, or having a well-deserved slumber. The hotel rooms are also fully equipped with free, super fast WiFi, hairdryer, a mini fridge and a generous amount of Urban Skincare soap, shampoo and conditioner. You just have to bring yourself because they have everything you need! Except clothes. Remember to bring a change of clothes, especially if you’re heading to the gym.

Although it isn’t the most well-equipped gym, it has ample space and equipment for you to bust a sweat and get a good workout. Anyway, you’re on ‘holiday’ so you don’t need to give yourself a HIIT workout. Just a simple one to get the endorphins running for a great mood is good enough. You can then end off your workout with a relaxing swim in the pool which comes with a city view. How’s that for relaxing?

Then it’s time to treat yourselves with some amazing food. Why else do we exercise anyway? For dinner, the in-house restaurant, Grains and Hops Restaurant and Bar, offers a variety of signature rice bowls that promise to take you to different regions in Asia. Pair miso salmon with multi-grain rice and a spicy honey garlic dip or go for the Angus beef skewer with garlic quinoa and a lemon butter dip. The restaurant even brews its own custom pale ale which is crisp and light on the palette – the perfect beverage to pair with its scrumptious rice bowls.


Grains and Hops also has a breakfast spread for guests! We don’t know about you but having breakfast while the warm sunlight is streaming in from the ceiling-to-floor windows is definitely going to make us feel extra satisfied with our meal.

We don’t always get to go overseas but its good to still give ourselves a treat once in a while and staycations are a great way to get some downtime away from our busy days without having to leave the country.
