Land-scarce Singapore doesn’t have a lot of staycation options when it comes to villas, but for those willing to pay the premium, there’s nothing quite like the Capella (or so I’ve been told).
Capella Singapore has just brought back their popular Villa Experience package for a limited time, valid for stays up till 11 March 2021. At S$822 nett, it’s certainly not cheap- but it’s much cheaper than normal.
Capella Villa Experience Package
Capella Singapore’s Villa Experience package includes:
- Complimentary villa upgrade with Premier Seaview Room booking (limited to 8 upgrades per day)
- Daily breakfast for two persons at The Knolls
- 20% off Food and Beverage at The Knolls and Cassia
- Complimentary overnight parking per room per night
- Complimentary Guest Benefits (view full list)
Stays must be booked and completed by 11 March 2021. Bookings cannot be changed or refunded, and it’s worth noting that there’s a cap of 8 upgrades per day– presumably because there’s only so many villas. You may want to confirm with Capella that there are still villas available during your stay before pulling the trigger.
The nightly rate costs S$698++ (S$822 nett), and is available for stays from Sunday to Thursday night. Since this must be booked directly through the Capella website, you cannot use SingapoRediscovers Vouchers (SRV). On the plus side, you will be able to earn GHA local experiences (plus double elite nights-registration required), as Capella is a participating brand.
You may recall that Capella previously offered a similar package back in July 2020 when they first reopened for staycations. The inclusions and price have remained largely the same (previous price: S$688++/S$810 nett), so if you felt it was a good deal then, it’s still a good deal now.
For the sake of perspective, a one-bedroom Garden Villa would normally cost at least S$1,160++ (S$1,365 nett) per night, so you’re scoring a pretty good deal.
What are Capella Singapore villas like?
Capella Singapore’s one-bedroom garden villas measure in at a whopping 133 sqm, with private plunge pools, soaking tubs, and an outdoor shower. Expect fancy amenities like Aesop toiletries, Sealy Posturepedic mattresses with Rivolta Carmignani linen, BOSE sound systems and Nespresso machines.
I’ve never had the privilege of staying in one of these, but you can check out the following reviews to whet your appetite:
It’s rare to see a villa at Capella Singapore pricing in the three digit range, so if you don’t mind the splurge, you could be in for quite a treat. Once again, this stay is non-refundable and must be completed by 11 March 2021.
To those who have stayed before- is Capella worth the hype?
