If you are looking for new hotels for staycation in Singapore, One Farrer Hotel & Spa is one that you should definitely consider! This new 5-star hotel, located in the middle of a rich heritage enclave, boasts a rather novel “hotels-within-a-hotel” concept. In other words, you will be able to find an Urban Hotel, Loft Apartments as well as a Skyline Hotel and Villas all under one roof. Personally, I am thrilled by the idea of villas in the sky. Are you?
Read on to find out what a Presidential Suite in the newest 5-star hotel looks like.
Skyline Studio One Farrer Hotel & Spa
I stayed in the Skyline Studio during my visit to One Farrer Hotel & Spa.The Skyline rooms in One Farrer Hotel & Spa are the equivalent of Club Rooms in other notable hotels. One of the perks that come along with the room is that check-in is done in the room itself!
Judging from the amount of snacks, cookies and fruits from the picture, you get the idea of how One Farrer Hotel & Spa spoils their guests. And the best part? They are all complimentary!
What’s not to love about a room with a spacious bathroom, rain shower, bath tub, in-room mood lighting, comfortable ‘sleep well’ beds and 55 inch smart TV?? Besides, since One Farrer Hotel & Spa is a new hotel, the rooms are clean and automated.
Perks for Skyline Rooms One Farrer Hotel & Spa
The Skyline rooms are the equivalent of club rooms in other notable hotels. Privileges for skyline guests includes:
- Personalized check-in and check-out at the Music Lounge on the Club Floor
- 5 daily complimentary light meals at the Skyline Lounge (Breakfast, Light Lunch, Afternoon Snacks, Evening Cocktail & Sweets)
- Complimentary Local Calls
- Complimentary 2 hour usage of meeting room
- 24/7 workout facilities exclusive to skyline guests
1. Complimentary Meals at the Skyline Lounge
One Farrer Hotel & Spa is one of the rare few hotels which provide not 3, 4 but 5 light meals a day. With all the complimentary food, I kinda felt like I was on the cruise during my stay. The selection and variety of food is great at the Skyline Lounge. But, I prefer to have my breakfast at Escape Restaurant and Lounge for greater variety.

2. Facilities Exclusive to Skyline Guests
Skyline guests who prefer more privacy would appreciate the exclusive access to the gym and pool. Even though these facilities are smaller than the common ones, it is definitely less crowded.
1. Olympic-Sized Pool
2. Spa Retreat
Personally, I feel that the availability of Spa Facilities for guests is a HUGE plus point for me! Generally I prefer to spend as much time in the hotel as possible during a staycation so that I can make the most out of my money. The availability of a Spa just means that there are more to do in the hotel.
Hotel guests have the option of indulging in the spa treatments offered by Spa Retreat or simply just enjoying the facilities in the spa. Facilities include Japanese-Style Onsens (hot & cold), Steam Room, Sauna Room and a Relaxation Corner.
As mentioned, One Farrer Hotel & Spa has a “Hotels within a Hotel” concept with three distinct hotel entities to serve the varied requirements of hotel residents. The three hotel entities are namely the Urban Hotel, Loft Apartments and Skyline Hotel & Sky Villas.
1. Urban Hotel
The Urban Hotel is the most basic of all hotel entities. The simple and modern European furnishing provides guests with a comfortable environment to work and relax.
2. Loft Apartments
Guests looking for an extended stay may favour the loft apartments due to the convenience of an en-suite kitchenette. The kitchenette is rather spacious and well furnished. It even comes with an oven.
3. Skyline Hotel & Sky Villas
Skyline rooms are generally similar to the Urban rooms except that the Skyline rooms are bigger and that it comes with special privileges mentioned earlier in this post. Guests from both the Skyline Hotel and the Sky Villas can indulge in the exclusivity of the Skyline Lounge & Terrace, 24/7 Workout and Pool Facilities.
One interesting thing to note is that each of the Sky Villas is unique so you can look forward to a different experience in different Villas. The Sky Villas can be classified into 3 categories: One-Bedroom, Two-Bedrooms and Presidential Villa.
Villa #1: One-Bedroom Villa
Villa #2: Two-Bedrooms Villa
Villa #3: Presidential Villa
Yes that’s right. This Presidential Villa will set you back by SGD10,000 (before tax). Not many can afford it but at least now we know what it looks like. My favourite part of the Presidential Villa? The bathroom for sure!
If you’re looking for a unique and luxurious staycation experience, you know exactly where to look. Conveniently located right next to Farrer Park MRT station, One Farrer Hotel & Spa is just minutes away from the city centre.
Overall, I am very pleased with the high level of service standard exhibited by the hotel staff. Also, since the hotel is very new, it is naturally very clean and modern. Highly recommended for your next staycation!
