You want a holiday where the main requirement is that it should be easy to plan because you have a toddler–a staycation at a toddler-friendly hotel is exactly what you need. Toddler-friendly means there are age appropriate in-room amenities, shallow swimming pools, staff who are trained to take care of toddlers, and of course fun stuff for the kids.
Where to stay with toddlers in Singapore
Staff who are more like family friends
Looking for a hotel that’s got a ‘where everybody knows your name’ vibe? When the housekeeping staff at Swissotel Merchant Court know you have a toddler they go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need. Your room will always be stocked with extra bottled water for you to make baby bottles with. Also, the hotel will prepare age-appropriate toys for your toddler which they can enjoy upon check-in. One review mentioned how while they forgot to request a roll-away bed for their little one the staff anticipated they’d need one and prepared it along with adding extra toiletries.
When it comes to family-friendly hotel facilities, there’s a pool for toddlers which has its own mini slide as well as its own lounge area where parents can relax in the comfort of other families. There are also interconnecting rooms if you’re travelling with a larger group.
Themed rooms let kids be kids
Toddlers will love Resorts World Sentosa’s Festive Hotel because, quite frankly, the Festive Hotel experience caters more to kids than adults (big kids included). The family room, for instance, comes with a loft bed for kids, and the waiting area in the lobby has Lego blocks for toddlers to play with. If your tot is on the younger side then a cot can be requested.
Parents who have trouble getting their child to bathe will love that the large bathrooms come with a bathtub which can make for a toddler-worthy bubble bath. There’s also a stool for toddlers to access the sink easily–a great source of ‘proud parent moments’ as you watch your potty trained toddlers wash their hands!
Toddlers get a royal welcome
The way toddlers are given a royal welcome at the Ritz Carlton Millenia Singapore, you’d think they were footing the bill! Kids below the age of four receive a set of bath amenities that include shower gel and baby powder, as well as a mini bathrobe and rubber ducky. Family rooms have a living area that’s spacious enough for toddlers to camp in let alone play in!

Toddlers scream for free ice-cream
As part of their welcome package, toddlers get an ice-cream pass entitling them to a free, daily scoop of ice-cream at Town Restaurant. They also get a colouring book, Fullerton teddy bear, and toiletries including baby wipes, shampoo, and lotion. As for sleeping arrangements, cribs, pillows and blankets are complimentary as are playpens and baby bathtubs and toddler step stools.
Kids are also taken care of in restaurants–your child’s food requirements are taken care of upon request and child-friendly cutlery and high chairs offered at The Fullerton.
You can have toddler-friendly and luxury at the Marina Bay Sands
At Marina Bay Sands, luxury and toddler-friendly amenities coexist side-by-side quite literally–they have their own shallow infinity pool on the 57th floor alongside the famous adult-version
Parents of toddlers, does your flat feel claustrophobic with all the laundry and toys scattered everywhere? If the answer is yes, you ought to plan your next staycation at the roomiest of roomy hotels: Marina Bay Sands. Each room has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking dazzling views of the bay and the most spacious hotel bathroom you’ve set eyes on with a walk in shower.
For extra space, go all in by staying in a Family Room. Compared to regular rooms, the Family Rooms are so huge they’re practically apartments! They have a balcony with chairs and a table, not to mention inviting views of Gardens by the Bay, plus an additional toilet.
Capri by Fraser has everything you forgot at home for your toddler
Parents who can’t help but over-pack for their toddlers will have a weight lifted, quite literally, by Capri by Fraser, as the hotel provides toiletries for toddlers as well as an anti-slip mat and a baby tub. As for sleeping arrangements, baby cots are available at no extra charge. And the sofa is perfect for larger tots. The walk-in wardrobe doubles up as a ‘toddler corner’ for changing nappies. Did we mention the bathtub is large enough for parents to have a shared bath time with their tykes?
For more water fun, parents can take their toddlers to the wading pool by the main pool. What doesn’t the hotel have in terms of toddler-friendly hotel amenities? There’s also an in-room kitchenette for preparing your child’s meals.
Order perfect toddler food through room service
Located on Orchard Road, Royal Plaza on Scotts offers direct access to the free water park for toddlers called ‘Far East Organization Children’s Garden’ at Gardens by the Bay. This compensates for the fact there’s no hotel pool specifically for toddlers. Other elements that make this hotel toddler-friendly is the fact staff know how to care for toddlers e.g. the room service team can prepare baby food properly, putting parents’ minds at ease, and babysitting services are offered through housekeeping. And, should you want to dine out, toddlers dine for free at top-rated restaurant Carousel.
Is your toddler rambunctious? Playpens can be requested in rooms at no extra cost. Room tip is to go for the family room which, with two double beds, accommodates 2 adults and 2 children. If you’re travelling by car, note that from the parking lot you’ll have to carry your stroller to get to the lobby as there are no lifts.
