Boutique hotels offer more than just a room to unwind and recharge.
Like luxury five-star hotels, a boutique hotel in Singapore provides amenities such as gyms and swimming pools, and is usually conveniently located in the city – bringing you close to attractions and nice eating establishments.
What stands out between them, though, is the cost. While a boutique hotel is more wallet-friendly, it does not skimp on quality. This means you wouldn’t have to splash a tonne of cash to enjoy the full staycation experience. Sometimes, a boutique hotel even injects colour and personality into its design and architecture, exuding character and vibe that is unique from other hotels.
Whether it’s a quick family escapade or a romantic weekend retreat with your other half, you can check yourselves into these beautiful boutique hotels that are all under $200 a night.
