The Mandarin Oriental Singapore

Enjoying a prime spot on Marina Bay, guests at the Mandarin Oriental can enjoy the views across the harbour to the iconic triple towers of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel (after all, it’s always better to see the view, than to be the view), and the towering glass towers of the CBD.

Miranda and Katie are here to help give you the inside track.

After a multi-million pound refurbishment in the early 2000's, the Mandarin Oriental emerged from its cocoon as one of the most modern and luxurious hotels in the city. There are 527 guestrooms and suites, all with floor to ceiling windows with views of the city and harbour. Marina Bay View rooms are our pick of the bunch. All rooms are decorated in a contemporary style, with oriental touches inspired by Singapore's cultural heritage, and feature surround sound music systems, TV and DVD players, and ensuite bathrooms with bath and shower.

The wide choice of restaurants includes the Italian bistro Dolce Vita, where tables spill out on to the pool terrace, Cantonese restaurant Cherry Garden, Japanese Teppan-Ya and the Mortons Steakhouse. The Axis Bar, with its superb views, makes the ideal spot to enjoy a Singapore Sling.

An outdoor swimming pool, with separate children's pool, is surrounded by shaded loungers and palm plants, creating a little oasis in the city. Wander from a sun lounger across to the pool terrace, into the serenity of the Spa for further relaxation. The Mandarin Oriental is within one of Singapore's most exciting dining and entertainment districts, and close to major Singapore landmarks such as the iconic Raffles Hotel, the Singapore Flyer and Gardens by the Bay, making it a luxurious and convenient base for city breaks.

Why we love it

The Singapore Grand Prix circuit passes straight in front of the hotel, and so should they have failed to get Grandstand tickets, guests can get a full view of the action from the Axis bar.

Villa Samadhi Exterior, Singapore

Villa Samadhi

Villa Samadhi is a boutique hotel built in a restored 20th century garrison. Bustling central Singapore sits only ten minutes away but the property is an ideal city escape thanks to being cocooned inside Labrador Nature Park.

Gardens, pool and exterior of the Capella


Capella offers something completely unique in Singapore; set on Sentosa Island, just off the southern coast of the city, it sprawls across 30 acres of verdant gardens and grounds, offering respite from the hum of Singapore's city centre.

The Fullerton Bay Hotel

The Fullerton Bay Hotel

Many of Singapore’s 20th Century immigrants made landfall at Clifford Pier in Marina Bay Sands, and the Fullerton Bay Hotel may well make you want to migrate there too.



Occupying an entire block in downtown Singapore, the magnificent ivory frontage of Raffles, complete with immaculately presented Sikh Doormen, has become an icon of the city.

The Fullerton

The Fullerton

In 1820, just one year after the Sir Stamford Raffles found the lost city of ‘Singapura’, raised the British Flag and gave it its modern name – Singapore – a large fortress was built upon a rocky promontory and named Fort Fullerton. After many reincarnations, from military headquarters, to General Post Office, this site was to become the beautiful Fullerton Hotel which stands today.
