Here’s the first 5 hotels approved for staycation guests

The STB has approved its first set of staycation hotels, and 4 out of 5 are on...Sentosa?

Since 3 July, hotels have been applying for approval to accept staycation guests once more. The STB stated that approvals would take “up to 14 days”, but it seems they’re moving in double quick time, because the first batch of five hotels has already been announced

🎉 Update: Another 13 hotels have been approved, bringing the total list to 18. Check out the latest staycation additions here

What hotels are approved for staycations?

The following five hotels have been approved to take staycation guests, effective immediately:

I have to say, this list is somewhat unexpected. 4 of the 5 properties are on Sentosa, and lyf is less hotel and more serviced apartment. Perhaps the STB site assessors just happened to be in Sentosa that day?

For the latest list, be sure to refer to the STB’s official page of hotels approved for staycations

What deals are on offer?

Here’s the current deals available for each of these properties. I think some of them were surprised by how fast they were approved- the Crockfords Tower website still says that they’re closed until further notice.

We should probably give them a bit of time to get their deals up and running, but in the meantime, here’s what’s available:

What will the staycation experience be like?

Expect automated check-in and a lot of contactless interactions during your staycation

The STB has published an extensive list of regulations that hotels must comply with before they can accept staycation guests. I’ve covered the details here, but you can expect things like

  • Staggered check-in/out timings
  • Capacity constraints on pool and gym usage
  • Contactless delivery of room service and other amenities
  • Modified club lounge happy hours
  • No breakfast buffets

Get ready for Phase 2 staycations: What to expect from Singapore hotels

It won’t be the same as it was before, but on the plus side, you can expect fewer crowds and an almost religious devotion to cleanliness. 


These five hotels are bound to be the first of many, so bookmark this page and watch the list grow. 

I’ll be putting together a consolidated list of staycation deals and analysis once we’ve reached a critical mass, so be on the lookout for that too.
