Singapore is the place to live your most luxurious life. Synonymous with indulgence and opulence, here you’ll find everything from Michelin-starred restaurants and award-winning bars, to indulgent spa treatments and lavish hotels with suites most could only dream about waking up in. If you’re looking for some boujee experiences, you’ve come to the right spot.

Whether you’re celebrating something special or are just looking to treat yo’self (you should!), take note because these are the most luxe things to do in Singapore right now.

Check Into A Presidential Suite

Is there anything more A-list than checking into a swanky hotel and booking the most opulent room available? We think not. In Singapore, presidential suites are next level. At The Fullerton Hotel, the sprawling 200 sqm suite comes with a baby grand piano and private elevator—forget waiting in line here. Along with luxe furnishings—including 20-feet Doric columns, sky-high ceilings and a glass-enclosed deck—your suite also comes with amazing perks, like daily Chandon breakfast and evening canapés and cocktails in a dedicated lounge. Or perhaps St Regis is more your style—lounge on velvet chairs under sparkling chandeliers, and soak in the oversized freestanding tub in the marble bathroom. Oh, and did we mention the suite comes with 24-hour butler service? And it doesn’t get more special than Marina Bay Sands’ offering—the Chairman Suite. The suite is over 600 sqm and encompasses four bedrooms, three furnished balconies, two living rooms including a baby grand piano, a private gym and a billiards room. The suite also includes a bunch of epic services like massages, limo transfers and of course, access to the famous infinity pool. 

Channel Your Inner A-lister With The Universal Studios VIP Experience 

Make like a movie star and book you and your mates the Universal Studios VIP Experience at Resorts World Sentosa. They’ll roll out the red carpet for you as you’re personally escorted through the theme park—celebrity style. The five-hour experience will score you priority access to all the best rides (essential in the busy season), your own private lounge to watch the live shows in, free-flowing drinks and meal vouchers, plus a meet and greet photo session with your favourite characters. 

Go Sky High With A Helicopter Ride

Why drive around Singapore when you can fly above it? Take your boujee experience sky high with Singapore Heli Services. Their five-seater EC120-B “Hummingbird” is uber plush with leather seats, loads of leg room and huge windows for max viewing opportunities. The sightseeing tour lasts 45 minutes and will see you soaring above Singapore’s most iconic landmarks like Marina Bay Sands, Keppel Bay, Sentosa, the Southern Islands, the Singapore Zoo, War Memorial Park and the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. The helicopter is also equipped with two-way stereo headsets, allowing you to communicate with your fellow passengers and your pilot—who will provide running commentary while you’re 1000 feet up in the air. 

Eat Your Way Around Singapore’s Michelin Star Restaurants  

Boujee meets bucket list experience when it comes to dining at one of Singapore’s many Michelin Star restaurants. While it’s hard to pick favourites, there are some absolute non-negotiables if you’re wanting to go all out. First up, Odette—consistently voted Asia’s best restaurant and the owner of three Michelin Stars, this modern French restaurant is a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience. Located at the National Gallery, the soft pink interior is oh so elegant and features a glass-enclosed kitchen so diners can see chef Julien Royer making magic. Another three Michelin Star eatery absolutely worth your tummy space and credit card is Zén. Expect Nordic-inspired snacks like beer-poached crustacean with trout roe and decadent wine pairings at this moody restaurant. Waku Ghin from renowned restaurateur Tetsuya Wakuda is a two Michelin Star eatery at Marina Bay Sands. The highly acclaimed Japanese degustation menu is best enjoyed while sitting at the exclusive 10-seater Chef’s Table.  Still hungry? Be sure to book a table at Les Amis. This three Michelin Star eatery serves an indulgent French menu. Think foie gras, caviar and lobster mousse. 

Indulge In A Boujee High Tea 

Oh, you thought we were done with the food portion of your boujee experience? Not even close. Singapore knows how to take a high tea and inject some serious boujee additions to make it an experience to remember. Kick your culinary adventure off with a trip to 10 Scotts at the Grand Hyatt Singapore for their three-course afternoon tea serving everything from blue swimmer crab with caviar to manjari chocolate tarts and champagne. For pure luxe vibes, check out Atlas' offering. The award-winning establishment’s afternoon tea menu was curated by executive chef Lachlan Lynch and features lobster crostini, truffled egg on brioche and lemon meringue tarts. Plus, you can elevate the experience with a selection of mini martinis—it would be rude not to. And you can’t go past Pan Pacific Singapore’s Atrium bar and their Japanese-inspired menu—nori and smoked trout sandwiches, California maki and mochi. Finally, treat yourself to a high tea in the sky at MO Bar at the Mandarin Oriental. Their afternoon menu pairs dainty bites like deviled quail eggs on brioche and oolong tea mouse with cocktails and sweeping city views. 

Bliss Out At These Incredible Spas 

Being boujee can be exhausting, so recharge with a treatment at one of Singapore’s best spas. Slow it down at Auriga, located at Capella Singapore on Sentosa. Nestled in a lush rainforest, here you can zen out with an array of wellness and beauty treatments based on the cycles of the moon. Try the customised Biologique Recherche Facial where a unique and tailor-made solution will be created to get your skin glowing. If you’re in the city centre, you’ll find your nirvana at Banyan Tree Spa, set within oriental-inspired water gardens on the 55th floor of Marina Bay Sands. The spa offers holistic treatments for a complete physical, mental and spiritual renewal. Check out their Sense Of Place Harmony Banyan experience which includes an orchid-infused body scrub and a massage conducted by two therapists to ensure total relaxation. If you want to get pampered with a plus one, then Raffles Spa—and in particular, the Gem Suite is for you. Offering everything from massage and body treatments with your own vitality pool, this private, uber-luxe suite was designed for friends or lovers to indulge in pampering in their own private oasis. Finally, COMO Shambhala Urban Escape is your go-to if you’re looking for an all-over wellness experience. Here you can enjoy everything from yoga and barre, to a deep-tissue massage and anti-aging facial—all in boujee surroundings of course. 

Treat Yourself To A Luxury Shopping Day 

When it comes to luxury shopping trips, no one does it better than Singapore. From international fashion houses to independent boutiques, you’re absolutely spoilt for choice here. If you’re looking for both offerings in the one spot, then you’ll want to head to Orchard Road, and in particular, the Mandarin Gallery. Here you’ll find the likes of Xi Apparel & Jade and local brand Beyond The Vines sitting side by side with Michael Kors and Choo Yilin Jewellery. If that is not enough, just walk down the road for plenty more options like Ion Orchard, Paragon and Ngee Ann City to get your luxury fix. For something more local, check out Design Orchard. This vibrant enclave celebrates Singapore’s most beloved brands, lauded designers and talented newcomers. Alternatively, get your steps up—and give your credit card a workout—at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. The precinct is home to over 170 premium brands like Dior, Chanel, Cartier, Fendi and Off-White.
