These staycation-goers seriously love their families. Aunties, uncles, cousins, grandpas, grandmas… Bring the whole lot in. This group’s pretty easy to spot: just look out for a big group at the hotel lobby. Not just any group, though, it’s the one where there’s kids frolicking around, teenagers glued to their phones, grandparents chilling away on the cushy sofas, and parents trying to keep it all together, as one of them tries desperately to check in as fast as possible. Despite the hectic-ness of it all, though, it’s rather sweet that these families still make the effort to come out and connect with each other during their precious weekends!

It doesn’t matter which room you get for your staycation (Superior from $170, Deluxe from $190, or Club from $220), get ready to have a whole lot of family fun! Soak in some sun with a cycling excursion, with this hotel’s complimentary bicycle ride (and don’t worry about getting lost, they offer a cycling reference guide as well!). If that’s not up your and your family’s alley, then why not go for a free bowling game or two instead? Lastly, partake in a koi feeding session, which is perfect for the little ones! If you’d rather have a more chill time, then check out their Ubin Adventure instead, and enjoy a FREE three-hour bicycle rental at Pulau Ubin. Family fun combined with the languid Ubin life? Sounds great to me!
