Benefits of Serviced Apartments

Experts in serviced apartments and the hospitality industry, we know why serviced apartments are fast becoming the chosen form of accommodation for business and leisure travellers in the city of Singapore.

Given the benefits serviced accommodation provides for guests, they are the perfect alternative to rental accommodation in Singapore, combining comfort and convenience with all the modern amenities to create the perfect stay.

Why are they becoming so popular? One of the first points is that all legal and contractual aspects are completely taken care of - meaning there’s no deposit, agency fees, maintenance costs and bills. Also, guests don’t need to worry about furnishings either – all furniture, bedding, cutlery and accessories are taken care of. Aside from the interior features, some serviced apartments even come with gyms, swimming pools and all the other equipment needed to keep up rigorous fitness schedules and to reduce expenditures on a monthly/yearly gym membership.

Plus, each apartment is centrally located and close to MRT stations, so getting around Singapore will be really easy. And, it makes travelling to business meetings and captivating attractions so much easier.

Overall, guests will find that serviced apartments are the ideal choice for any extended stay in Singapore, and can help them to enjoy a city and the local neighbourhood in the long term.

Corporate Accommodation in Singapore

Singapore is undoubtedly a pro-business hub. Its free economy makes it a huge attraction for foreign investment, as does its AAA sovereign rating from all major credit rating agencies (the only nation in Asia with a AAA rating). As such, business travellers come here very frequently for trade deals, client meetings and business conferences. But after all of that is over, they want their own bespoke space in Singapore to relax in when they come back from a day of constant meetings and pitches.

While each one of our apartments come with the flair and elegance of Singaporean living, they are also vibrantly colourful and have great views over the most popular parts of the city-state. Not only that, but they are also fully furnished with essential amenities so business travellers can kick back just the same as they would at home.

Holiday Accommodation in Singapore

With its tropical climate, scrumptious cuisine and ever-popular attractions, it’s no wonder that Singapore is popular with leisure and thrill-seekers. When westerners want to escape the cold winter chills, they head to places like the city-state. Given there’s so much to eat and do, guests will eventually reach their peak and head back to their accommodation. However, rather picking a standard hotel, they should treat themselves to our serviced apartments, homely spaces that have everything they require for a successful stay.

And that’s just the start. The apartments come in a variety of types (studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom or 3-bedroom), they can be found all over Singapore (Queensway, Orchard Road, Robertson Quay, Marina Sands, Tanjong Pajar and Bukit Timah) and are furnished with amenities that include complimentary Wi-Fi, a flat screen TV, cosy furniture, comfy bed, sleek bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen.

Where to Stay in Singapore

As an island city-state, Singapore presents different challenges when it comes to choosing the perfect location in which to stay. Covering some 721sq kilometres, the city is comprised of business, commercial and residential zones that make up five regions: East, West, North, North East and Central. Most foreign visitors to the city, whether tourists or business travellers, will predominantly find themselves in the Central area, which is where Singapore’s Central Business District is to be found, as well as many of the city’s most famous landmarks. The central area is divided up into neighbourhoods and precincts, which include Downtown Core (where Marina Bay, Marina Centre, Raffles Place, Tanjong Pagar are to be found), Newton, River Valley and Orchard.

Of all these areas, Downtown Core is arguably the most desirable for visitors. It is the historical heart of the city, as well as the location of the central commercial and business zones. Covering around four square kilometres, the district was the first area to be developed during the colonial period. It is now more commonly referred to as the Central Business District. Conversely, Marina Bay, which is largely built on reclaimed land, is emerging as the ‘new downtown’, with the Promontory featuring numerous restaurants, theatres and public spaces. Sentosa Island, to the south of the central area, is often seen as the more quiet, relaxed part of Singapore, with resort-like locations offering the more traditional vacation experience, with golden beaches and family attractions.

Facts About Singapore

Singapore is something of an anomaly - an island city-state, with an urban area virtually encompassing its entire landmass. However, this small-but-prosperous state is considered a world leader when it comes to finance and technological innovation. Formerly a colony of the British Empire, Singapore has a diverse history and combined with its penchant for large-scale building projects - including reclaiming land from the sea - the city itself has a fascinating backstory as well as an utterly unique cityscape.

  • Singapore has a population of 5.3 million.
  • Resorts World Sentosa is one of the world’s most expensive building projects, costing some $6.59 billion.
  • Marina Bay Sands’ infinity pool is built on the world’s largest cantilevered platform.
  • Singapore welcomes the equivalent of three times its population in visitors annually.
  • Singapore is one of just three city-states in the world, the other two being Monaco and the Vatican.

Singapore has one of the world’s fastest growing economies, with a GDP per capita of some $60,000. It is also famously one of the most open economies in the world, embracing free trade and low taxes. The city-state’s wealth is largely derived from exports - particularly electronics, chemicals and financial services. As such, the Port of Singapore is now the world's busiest transhipment port, surpassing Hong Kong and Rotterdam.

Tourism in Singapore is also a major industry, generating almost $27 a year in revenue. This inevitably means that local authorities invest heavily in the attractions and resorts catering to leisure travellers. These often offer a stark contrast to the city centre - with water parks, golden beaches and theme parks replacing shopping malls and skyscraper office blocks.

Cost of Living in Singapore

Ranked the most expensive city to live in from 2013 to 2019 by the Economist, it’s fair to say that this isn’t going to be the cheapest destination to visit. With average rents of around S$4,215, they are among some of the highest in Asia (although Hong Kong’s is $11,000). For those that want to reduce the eye-watering amount that they could potentially pay, then they need to consider our portfolio of long term apartments in Singapore. The longer a person stays, the more likely they can get the benefits of reduced rates and other packages.

Other costs like entertainment, food, travel and healthcare can vary considerably. Cost of travel, for instance, totals anywhere between a few Singaporean dollars or very small double digits based on the mode of transport and how far is being travelled. Two theatre tickets can cost S$265, whereas healthcare insurance (for long term travellers) can vary on age, gender and coverage (e.g. the average cost of an international health insurance plan for a 45-year-old expat living in Singapore is S$3,227).

Tips for Visiting Singapore

While it may only be a city-state, Singapore still takes some getting used to, even if it is fairly small in size. Some may even find its temperature and culture to be very alien compared to their own. However, the best way for new travellers to handle this is with the help of a few tips from the experts: us. Below are some of the key things to remember and top tips when visiting Singapore:

  • It’s best to dress for the tropical climate.
  • Be prepared for the intermittent tropical showers by packing an umbrella.
  • Take plenty of money as Singapore can be very expensive.
  • Eat at the hawker centres to save money when eating out.
  • Using public transport is surprisingly cheap and effective.
  • Chewing gum (or even possessing gum) can result in hefty fines.
  • Tipping is not customary.
  • Singapore’s high taxes on alcohol and cigarettes make drinking and smoking very expensive.
  • Happy hour deals are the best way to save money when buying Singapore’s expensive alcoholic drinks.

Places to Eat in Singapore

One of the best things about Singapore is, thanks to its diverse cultural influences, the city offers an incredible range of dining experiences. Naturally, there are many establishments specialising in Asian cuisine as well as European cuisine and foods from other parts of the world. This is hardly surprising given the openness of the city-state with other cultures, and given that dining is a national event for Singaporeans (they love eating and trying new flavours). From small establishments to fine dining restaurants, the best places to eat in Singapore are:

  • Shinji by Kanesaka.
  • Jiang-Nan Chun.
  • Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant.

Street Food in Singapore

Aside from its huge amount of restaurants, Singapore is also famous for its street food. In fact, Singapore’s street food scene is one of the most diverse in South East Asia - which in itself is quite the accolade. The markets and hawker stalls of the city offer a great opportunity to experience authentic ethnic foods. Sungei Road Laksa, Fu Ming Shu Shi, Otowa Yakitori and Heng Heng are renowned stalls, serving a range of local specialities. However, many of the best vendors are those that aren’t so well known. The best places to explore for these are the Maxwell Food Centre, Lau Pa Sat market and the Tekka Centre.

Shopping in Singapore

Singapore has an almost unusually high concentration of shopping centres and prestige retail precincts, making it one of Asia’s top shopping destinations. The best shopping in Singapore is inevitably found in the central district, with Orchard Road being the most popular place for fashion and designer goods. There’s also the sprawling VivoCity, a massive shopping complex that boasts some 340 retailers along with a cinema and entertainment complex. For an alternative shopping experience, there’s also the Chinatown Markets, which offer everything from traditional handicrafts to unique fashions.

Further to its famous shopping streets, Singapore also has several malls and precincts, such as Ion Orchard, which has over 400 retailers over its 12 floors. Other notable malls include:

  • Paragon Shopping Centre.
  • Suntec City Mall.
  • The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
  • City Square Mall.
  • Bugis Junction Mall.

Transportation in Singapore

Singapore has one of the most advanced, comprehensive and cost-efficient public transport systems in the world. The two most popular means for traversing the city are by bus and via the Singapore Mass Rapid Transport system. Both are extremely efficient and comfortable - with air conditioning as standard. They can also be paid for using the EZ-link card - which is similar in format to London’s Oyster card. Singapore has two main bus operators, SBS Transit and SMRT Buses, which connect all areas of the city via some 360 scheduled services. By contrast, the MRT system has just 9 lines, but provides a much faster way of getting around the city. It features 185 stations in total, with some of the major stops being:

  • Serangoon.
  • Bishan.
  • MacPherson.
  • Buona Vista.
  • Paya Lebar.

Singapore also features an abundance of taxis - over 15,000 in fact - and tourists can also make use of the hop-on-hop-off sightseeing bus routes.

Weather in Singapore

Singapore is close to the equator and therefore experiences a tropical climate - it is typically warm and humid all year round frequent showers. However, as Singapore’s weather - including the temperature - is so constant, day and night, it is much easier to acclimatise to than might be expected. This also means that Singapore does not have distinct seasons like western Europe, however, there are two monsoon seasons. The first one is from mid-November to early March. The second occurs from June to September. February and April are considered the best times to visit Singapore, as rainfall during these months is comparatively low, as is the chance of adverse weather conditions.
