One of the draws of this hotel is the in-house luxury spa. Make full use of The Spa by JW’s modern technology-driven wellness facilities, which incorporate colour, aroma and music therapy, with your Valentine.

If you’re an old school romantic, you’ve probably already considered booking a Valentine’s Day staycation at The Fullerton Hotel. The Fullerton Heritage group will reward you with wellness if you book a spa getaway package at either of its hotels, which includes a spa session and complimentary yoga classes. That’s a 3-hour spa immersion consisting of a 90-minute body massage, 30-minute body scrub using Aromatherapy Associates products, and a class at either District One or Outta Hatha Yoga by the Marina Bay. You get one of those fancy Fullerton Merlion cocktails on the house too.

Prices start at $1008 per night at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and $1160 at The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore. Valid until December 30, 2018.

Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel

Our idea of a romantic getaway is cocktails by the pool with our beau, far away from the bustling city. In the heart of Orchard, the closest thing you can get to that is the Pool Terrace room, which has direct access to the outdoor pool on the fifth floor of the Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel.

From $760 per night (promo code: 5RP), you’re entitled to a continental breakfast, evening cocktails and canapes, and a 3-course wine pairing dinner at the Pool Grill restaurant. You and your partner will also enjoy a 60-minute massage for two at the newly opened Serena Spa.

Valid until December 31, 2018. Visit www.marriott.com/sindt to make a booking.

For the royal treatment, escape to this gorgeous boutique hotel, a handsome colonial building that stands amidst the lush greenery of Labrador Nature Reserve. Each of the 20 rooms feels totally exclusive and is oozing with old-world charm, perfect for those who love a good dose of nostalgia. They’re furnished with wooden custom-crafted side tables and bed frames, and even a wooden bathtub to add to the rustic aesthetic.

The “Sweet Escape” package, available for check-ins on February 13 and 14, gets you and your partner an afternoon tea set of traditional snacks, a romantic Thai dinner for two, courtesy of the Tamarind Hill restaurant, and a turndown service - a decanter full of Cognac, plus Asian snacks and chocolates. You’ll also get a breakfast buffet spread. All of this can be enjoyed in the comfort of your room or at any of the common areas within the hotel premises. Prices start at $650 per night in a Crib room.

If you book a room before February 5, they’ll throw in a nice box of chocolates and a rose. You can email reservations@villasamadhi.com.sg.

Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong

Planning a sumptuous Valentine’s Day dinner in the foodie enclave of Katong? When you’re done, hop over to Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong along East Coast Road for a staycation full of local flavour. Formerly the Joo Chiat Police Station, its design elements, from carrom board coffee tables to brightly coloured Peranakan-inspired wall tiles, call to mind the Singapore of a bygone era. Perfect for couples who want to relive the halcyon days of their youth.

The hotel may be steeped in culture and history, but the amenities are everything the modern cosmopolitan couple will appreciate - spa-style bathrooms, an infinity pool on the top floor, and the oft raved-about Peranakan restaurant Baba Chews Bar and Eatery just downstairs. The rooms boast great views too, starting from $200.

For an additional $50, you will receive a bouquet of 3 roses with baby’s breath, Peranakan cookies, a fruit basket and handmade gift card from the hotel. And if you love cheesy romantic gestures as much as we do, you’ll appreciate the balloon room decor the hotel provides too. Just drop them an email at resvn.sinki@ihg.com to request for the service.

Lloyd’s Inn

We had to include this one, because in a quick office poll it emerged as the hot favourite for couple staycations. It’s easy to see why. The boutique hotel may only be a stone’s throw away from Somerset MRT, but tucked away in a housing estate, it feels like a private villa you might find in Phuket or Bali

With its minimalist design, abundant natural light and open-concept showers, it’s the perfect setting for your #couplegoals IG posts. There are only 34 rooms though, so make your reservation soon. Pro tip: go for the Big Sky Room. It’s wonderfully spacious with high ceilings, and it has an outdoor bathtub in a large sky well. Need we say more? For the month of February, use the promo code "lovelloyds" when you book a room for a special discount.

Prices start from $160. Go to www.lloydsinn.com
 

Andaz Singapore

When it comes to celebrations, some people live by the principle of “go big or go home”. To those people, we say: go to Andaz Singapore. This Valentine’s Day, their Presidential Suite is yours for the night for just $2888++.

As part of the package, you are ferried in a limo to a two-hour couple spa treatment at Damai Spa, located within the Grand Hyatt Singapore. It includes a renewing Lemon Sugar Body Polish and a Malay Urut Massage, which is meant to rejuvenate your body and mind.

You also get a four-course meal at 665 Degrees Farenheit, the steakhouse and seafood restaurant on the 38th floor of the hotel. Because there’s no better way to say you love someone than to feed them with scallop carpaccio and juicy grilled Tajima sirloin.

End your night by admiring the magnificent view overlooking the city in the arms of your lover. Cue every sappy 90s love song ever (played over state-of-the-art Bang & Olufsen home theatre system that comes with the Presidential Suite).

Make your booking at singapore@andaz.com.
