Nearly half of the world’s population resides in the Asia Pacific region, which is why Australian Associations are so keen to look beyond their domestic market and tap into such a large network. As a hub for the Asia Pacific, Singapore is well placed to offer Associations the perfect meetings destination from which to engage with the region.

With over 260 weekly flights from Australia to Singapore by both full-service and low cost carriers, it’s easier to get there than ever, and once you’re there you’d be amazed at how far your dollar can go.

In the second of our four-part series on how Singapore can help Association meeting planners, we look at the city’s range of accommodation across its more than 60,000 room inventory that won’t break the budget. Situated across Singapore’s diverse neighbourhoods, the majority of these contemporary hotels come in at less than $200 a night, leaving more in the kitty to enjoy the rest this cosmopolitan city has to offer.

Home to museums and monuments, the Bras Basah/Bugis Precinct is the arts and heritage district in Singapore’s civic centre. It’s also home to some great accommodation options with the brand new Mercure Ibis Bugis and Rendezvous Hotel Singapore coming in well under the $200 mark.

Civic District

Where Singapore’s historic heritage began, the Civic District also has some accommodation gems. The 4-star Peninsula Excelsior Hotel and Carlton Hotel Singapore offer great amenities and comfort, not to mention value for money.

Home to Peranakan culture, this colourful and vibrant district also houses some great hotels. The Village Hotel Katong  keeps true to the neighbourhood with colourful Peranakan-themed rooms, and Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy  is a destination in itself.

Kallang/Lavender

Buzzing is a word to describe the districts of Kallang/Lavender, home to traders, boutiques, creative outlets and great food. To stay close to the action Hotel Boss truly has something for everyone across its 1500 contemporary rooms, while the PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road is a stone’s throw from the eclectic Little India neighbourhood.

Newton/Novena/Balestier

A bustling residential oasis that still offers great food and shopping experiences. Try the Oasia Hotel Novena, Singapore or the Ramada Singapore At Zhongshan Park for great accommodation that has easy access to the CBD.

Orchard Road

As Asia’s most iconic shopping district, Orchard Road offers a huge range of retail options for those who like to shop ‘til they drop. It also offers a great range of hotels as well, with the Mandarin Orchard Singapore, Orchard Hotel Singapore, Pan Pacific Orchard and Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore offering premium accommodation at bargain hunters prices.

Chinatown

A maze of alleys brings the old and the new face-to-face with street hawkers, goldsmiths, medicinal halls and teahouses alongside hipster bars and cool boutiques. It’s also got a great array of contemporary accommodation with the Furama City Centre Singapore and M Hotel Singapore right in the thick of this cultural melting pot.

Restaurants, bars or nightlife – Clarke Quay has it in spades. And there are plenty of hotels in the mix as well with The Four Points by Sheraton Singapore, Riverview,  Swissotel Merchant Court, Singapore and Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay all a stepping stone from the action.

Sentosa/Harbourfront

Whether you want to recharge or charge up Sentosa has you covered, with world class attractions, restaurants and outdoor facilities not to mention beautiful beaches in this integrated island resort. It also has a huge range of accommodation for every need with Bay Hotel Singapore and Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa offering an island vibe only a cable car ride away from the Harbourfront.
