Even with the blitz of hotel openings and more new properties coming up, you can count on the stalwart names for excellent hospitality and a relaxing day away from home. The ongoing travel restrictions have heightened interest in daycations (mini half-day getaways) and staycations (including themed ones where you can bring your pets), as many of us look to recreate a holiday mood at local hotels and resorts.
Among the properties of note is Capella Singapore, a sprawling resort designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Norman Foster and late interior designer Jaya Ibrahim. The six-star hotel opened in 2009 and has recently undergone a year-long renovation by André Fu Studio that gives its rooms and villas a subtle and soothing design refresh.

Comprising two colonial bungalows from the late 19th century, the refurbishment of the 110 suites and villas features a calming, earthy palette livened up by green accents that reference the flourishing greenery surrounding the property. The custom furnishings combine tropical elements with mid-century influences with its curvy silhouettes and organic textures while taking reference from Fu’s eponymous home decor and furniture brand André Fu Living.
