Be it checking in for an intimate celebration with your partner or hosting a party with your friends, a birthday staycation is always a great present for yourself. Not only do you get to have a fancy space to entertain your guests, you can also enjoy the hotel facilities and have a comfortable stay after the party. Some hotels even offer you birthday perks and freebies or have event planners to help you make the special occasion more memorable. Looking to celebrate in style? Here are seven of the best hotels for your next birthday celebration.
Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa
This luxury resort is not only the perfect place for you to spend some quiet time away from the city, but it also caters for gatherings with your friends and family. They have rooms, suites, villas and even a mansion for you to accommodate groups of all sizes. We recommend the Courtyard Suite that comes with a personal jacuzzi in a private courtyard, or the more spacious One-Bedroom Villa where guests can mingle in the living room or take a dip in the private pool. There’s also plenty to do outside the resort. You can take the opportunity to explore Sentosa or spend the day with friends at attractions like the Adventure Core Waterpark and Universal Studios Singapore. If you wish, you can engage the resort to organise the celebration for you. A buffet lunch or dinner can be arranged for a minimum of 30 guests starting from $68++ per person. Soft drinks, coffee and tea are free-flow and you will get a complimentary cake. Other perks include preferential rates for room bookings and complimentary entry in Sentosa for your guests.

D’Resort @ Downtown East
Downtown East has always been the go-to place for chalet stays and barbeque sessions. After its revamp in in 2015, the new chalet rooms now look more modern and hotel-like than the previous rooms which were functional but had uninspiring decor. Now, there is also a new category of rooms which are the Rainforest Suite and Rainforest Premier Suite. Although these rooms don’t come with the option for you to book BBQ pits, the ample space ensures that you will still be able to have a smashing celebration for you and your guests. Both types of rooms come with living and dining areas and have the same amenities, but the Rainforest Premier Suite is slightly bigger and comes with an OSIM massage chair in a lounging area. The resort also offers in-room decoration services for special occasions providing décor such as helium balloons and birthday banners. If you still prefer to do some grilling, you can opt for the double-storey Beach Cove Duplex which gives you the option to book a BBQ pit and more space to entertain guests. There are also tons of activities for you to do at Downtown East. You can get wet at waterpark Wild Wild Wet, sing your heart out at Teoheng KTV Studio, or catch a movie at Cathay Cineplex among many other activities.
