Top 10 best luxury hotels in Singapore

Monday newsletters always feature top 10 travel lists to inspire.

Today (September 17, 2018): Top 10 best luxury hotels in Singapore.

Singapore, the gateway to Southeast Asia, is an intriguing country that was created by deeply passionate people following their dreams and aspirations. It’s a place that serves as a canvas for its people’s wildest imagination, where new experiences are created every day, and where foodies, explorers, collectors, action seekers, culture shapers, and socialisers meet. Constantly evolving, reinventing, and reimagining itself, Singapore attracted more than 17 million international tourists last year, more than 3 times its total population. It’s expected that the box office success of the movie ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ – much of the film is set in Singapore – will boost the Lion City’s tourism even further, offering the island city-state an opportunity to rebrand itself as a high-end tourist destination. So now is good time to give a round-up of the ten most fabulous luxury hotels in the Singapore.
