So your days as a single gal are almost over, and you and your girls are planning an epic last hurrah. Whatever you've got in mind for your hen do – whether it's club shenanigans, outdoor adventures or blissful spa treatments – one thing's for sure: you need a fabulous base camp. To help you say goodbye to singlehood in style (and comfort), here are our picks of swish hotels in Singapore for hen nights, from charming boutique hotels to over-the-top luxe villas.
St Regis Singapore
Perfect for fancy fetes, St Regis Singapore is the stuff of dreams for well-heeled women looking to splurge. Kick off your stay with the lavish high tea spread at the hotel's opulent restaurant, Brasserie Les Saveurs, before a quick catnap at the Caroline Astor Suite, which features sumptuous European-style decor in a chic cream and terracotta palette. The light-filled bedroom (thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows) is decked out with plush linens and offers sweeping views of Singapore Botanic Gardens. The suite is also connected to the Grand Deluxe King Room should you have more bridesmaids looking to stay the night.
St Regis Singapore, 29 Tanglin Road, Singapore 247911, p. 6506 6888, e. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Planning a champagne-popping, rump-shaking booze fest? You need to check into BIG Hotel, a stylish boutique property in the Bugis-Bras Basah district that teams up with Attica for fab party deals. Get ready for your whirlwind night at the hotel's chic, neutral-hued rooms – FYI, they make brilliant backdrops for makeshift photobooths and party decor. Once you're all stilettoed up, hop into a cab to Attica and simply flash your keycard to nab free entry for you and a guest (plus priority entry before 11.30pm!). To keep the bubbly flowing all night, the hen's night package even includes 10% off premium bottles and free-flow mixers, alongside a complimentary round of shooters with advanced bookings.

The South Beach
Up the ante on your hen getaway at this buzzy hotel – boasting swanky, airy suites and scintillating skyline views, it even has a ladies floor for maximum exclusivity. The hotel's H.E.R staycation package includes divine bath products to slather yourself in, cocktails and even a special gift. Here, you're in serious danger of never leaving the hotel; you can easily spend an entire evening sunning and knocking back tipples at the poolside bar at Ebb6, before gazing out at the cityscape over at Flow18's infinity pool.

Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa
Perched on a cliff above Tanjong Beach is Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa – a five-star resort which oozes luxury from every nook and cranny. Here you can splurge on Villa Du Jardin, a garden villa with two impeccable bedrooms, a private pool and a lush garden terrace. No island escape is complete without a pampering treatment or two, so make sure to check into So Spa, which offers treatments ranging from body polishes and facials to massages and body wraps. And ladies, your ultimate beach party doesn't get closer than this; our fave coastline party pad, Tanjong Beach Club, is just a mere walk away.

Sleek, airy and wonderfully minimalist, Lloyd's Inn is one of the city's most Instagrammed-to-death hotels to date, thanks to its unconventional design, central location and affordable rates. While the hotel's facilities are simple (there's only a dipping pool and garden deck), we can't refuse its clean, mostly-white palette which contrasts gorgeously against the surrounding foliage. We recommend The Big Skyroom for its inviting loft-like vibes (and that precious adjoining open-air space for a million photo opps).

Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Singapore (Orchard)
Savour lush city panoramas and get to the heart of the city's shopping at the Orchard outpost of Pan Pacific. While you can't go wrong in picking a room – all are comfy havens – the luxe two-bedroom executive suite is perfect for hen dos. It's dressed up with a luscious king and queen bed, a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious living and dining area for your dessert tables.

The Sultan Hotel
Taking up 10 shophouses, The Sultan is a hip tribute to Singapore's colourful heritage. Check into The Sultan Loft for your hen night; like its name suggests, the suite is fit for royalty, with a double-storied set-up comprising of a living area on the first floor and a bedroom on the second – jazzed up with timber roof beams, wide arcs, and full-length shuttered windows. You don't even need to leave the hotel for a good time: The hotel houses Singjazz Club, a club with a music hall environment, and Fresh!, a laidback club serving up tasty cocktails and old-school music from the '90s and '00s.
The Sultan Hotel, 101 Jalan Sultan, Singapore 199002.
Larger than (yet equally as charming as) a regular boutique hotel, with the same luxury found in five-star types, Naumi Hotel is unendingly plush on all fronts: designer furnishings, seven layer bedding in 400 thread-count Egyptian cotton, and Airplay mirroring which allows you to connect your Macbook to the TV (fab if you're planning on staying in with chick flicks!). Glam girls, check into the Gabriella & Camellia room for Coco Chanel-inspired monochrome interiors, then head up to the rooftop where you can swim among skyscrapers at the infinity pool.
Naumi Hotel, 41 Seah Street, Singapore 188396.
For a hen night to beat all hen nights, unleash your island fantasies at W Singapore, located at the so-exclusive-it-hurts Sentosa Cove. If you've got the dough, splash out on the Extreme Wow suite, a drool-worthy combination of stunning ocean views, gorgeous artwork, two luscious bedrooms and an enormous bathroom with a jacuzzi bathtub. The expansive living area is perfect for sophisticated soirees, while the dining area fits up to 10 people – perfect for pre-party dinners. Don't forget to glam up and chase sunset o'clock at Woobar (with a bespoke cocktail in hand, no less).
W Singapore,21 Ocean Way Sentosa, Singapore 098374.
Hotel Jen Tanglin
Conveniently located in the heart of town (yet distant enough from the Orchard action) is the recently-refurbished Hotel Jen Tanglin. Treat yourself (and your favourite ladies!) to the Girls Party Staycation package, which kicks off with a huge vodka-spiked watermelon, a tray of gourmet canapes, and – for the ultimate party – one round of mixers and a beer pong table (yes you read that right). If you're keen on filming all your bachelorette party action, the hotel even provides a 16gb Gopro.
Hotel Jen Tanglin, 1A Cuscaden Road, Singapore 249716.
