If you’re a flashpacker looking for some luxury and sophisticated entertainment, Singapore would be your paradise. From exquisite wine bars to soothing high-end spa resorts, there is all you need for a modern urbanite’s flashy lifestyle. We promise you Asia’s finest, in this modern and chic tropical heaven.
Here are some of the best spots in Singapore for the high-strung travellers:
New Asia Bar
A bar with a view – Located on the 70th floor of the tallest hotel in Singapore, the New Asia Bar is Singapore’s answer to the city’s sexiest cocktail bar. Set against an unobstructed backdrop of Singapore’s dazzling skyline, it creates the perfect atmosphere to soak in the city’s charm.
Enjoy the sunset here, especially with the sundowner’s prices at 2-for-1 (2 cocktails for the price of 1) from 3-9pm daily.
As its name implies, it is one of the rare few spots in the bustling city where you can actually enjoy some privacy. In this cosmopolitan city, you find crowds everywhere, especially at a trendy hotspot. So be surprised to find tranquility and a peace of mind at this exquisite al-fresco waterfront bar overlooking the yachts of the Marina. Situated on the private island of Keppel Bay, it’s only accessible by car or boat.
Perched on a cliff overlooking the South China Sea on the offshore island of Sentosa, this boutique restaurant exudes a unique sensual ambience. Designed by a famous Japanese designer, the opened-roof restaurant is set amongst flowing water and a lush jungle. You’ll be treated to a view of the sea and offshore islands. Of course the setting comes at a high price.
With a cascading waterfall as a centre stage, this resort ensconced in natural tropical foliage creates the best hideaway for people who yearn to escape from the bustling city. Located on the Siloso beach of Sentosa island, the resort is a sanctuary especially for couples in search of their own world.
Every room has a view of the seafront, and the rooftop suite even has its own private jacuzzi. The room rates are on the high end, starting from S$180.
Cafe del Mar
Just like its counterpart in Ibiza, the snazzy beachbar is set on the smooth sands of Siloso Beach, grooving along with its white furnishing and hip crowd. Cafe del Mar is a great place to hang out on a sunny Saturday afternoon, especially on its linen daybeds along with a dip in its tiny pool. Be warned, there is an abundance of poseurs.
Nestled in the luscious foliage of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, this restaurant/cafe provides the best atmosphere in the Tropics. Halia (Malay for ‘Ginger’) has a great Sunday brunch buffet menu, and a soothing ambience with nature.
Overlooking the skyline of Singapore’s southern coast, the Jewel box is built on the peak of Mount Faber, the highest point of the island. A dimly-lit and ideallic spot for a romantic rendezvous, Jewel Box oozes sensuality and calm. Bring your loved one here, and she will surely be enticed. Serving costly dinners and drinks, you might have to prepare to pay for the view.
