Family-Friendly Staycation Spots For The Best Bonding Time This Mother’s Day

While it isn’t overseas travel, there’s nothing quite like gathering the whole family over the weekend at a local hotel for some bonding time without work getting in the way. Sure, the Mother’s Day weekend isn’t a long one, but we reckon it’s one of the best times to get together with the children and simply enjoy each other’s companies.

Out of the myriad of hotels found all over the island, we’ve sussed out a number of child-friendly accommodations that can provide space and activities for entertaining and taking care of the littlest ones.

Featuring colourful bedding and a children’s play teepee within the room, as well as bathtub toys and child-sized toiletries, kids will be greatly entertained even before they leave the room.

Activities-wise, parents can bring the kids to the playground and jumble gym, both places where the young ones can have fun without running off on their own. They can also partake in the weekend treasure hunt, which allows all participants to redeem a special treat after their exciting adventure.

If there’s anyone who knows how to cater to every type of guest, it’s Shangri-La Hotel. To make stays a fun experience for children, the hotel has launched an interactive indoor and outdoor play space in the form of Buds by Shangri-La, where the little guests can go on through themed spaces and installations for various activities such as cooking, art, and music. Even those under four years old have a space to themselves—the Toddler Zone, where swings, slides, a ball-pit, and piano floor entertain the youngest in the family. As the kids have their fun, parents can sit back at the Recharge café beside the entrance of the area.

Meanwhile, Shangri-La also offers rooms made with families in mind. The Tower Wing’s ninth floor features a Family Concierge that serves five Themed Family Suites and 19 Deluxe Family Rooms: the former showcases decorative elements like treetop, castle, and space for the children to enjoy, while the latter gives ample space for a family to fit in comfortably.

Rates: From S$530 per night (offer valid until 31 Dec 2019)

The stylish JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach may not look like a family hotel at first glance, but its activities state otherwise. Under its special two-night getaway designed for two adults and one child, families will get to experience the comforts of modern hospitality. Along with the breakfast buffet at Beach Road Kitchen, children will also receive a set of activity and exploration books, the latter of which will earn them a special gift upon completion.

Want to spice up the room’s decór a tad more? Parents can request for a JW Marriott camper that can accommodate up to one child (up to seven years of age). Kids can also get creative with the hotel-provided colouring cards with crayons.

Rates: From $400 per night (offer valid until 31 Mar 2020)

As a specially curated staycation package for families, the Ritz Kids Night Safari will offer an exhilarating time for curious little ones.

This includes a night lamp and an edible turndown amenity, simulating a camping trip in the great outdoors—within the comforts of a hotel suite, of course.

Families looking for some bonding time can also consider the Game Night room package, where guests get to enjoy a bespoke Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore Monopoly game that uses iconic Singapore museums and landmarks in its creation.

You can’t draft a staycation piece without mentioning at least one Sentosa spot, and the newly opened Village Hotel Sentosa fits the bill perfectly. Boasting of a family-friendly experience for all guests, the hotel prides itself with its proximity to Sentosa’s range of attractions by creating family-centric rooms and packages. Their Family Rooms comprise of en-suite accommodations, which provide flexibility for families to use the space to their liking. Children are also front and centre of their services, as they’re offered the Village Important Kids (VIK) treatment to “check-in” on behalf of the family, as well as receive a welcome kit of amenities catered just for them.

And of course, the things to do are just as essential to the whole experience, which means activities and treats for the kids like pool games, face painting sessions, and sculpted balloon giveaways are abundant. Parents also get their own form of recreation. Check out the Aqua Zumba classes at the hotel’s Pamukkale Pool or go on the many Sentosa cycling trails while the children are having fun.

Rates: from S$370++ per night
