Not too keen on the usual bar-hop for your once-in-a-lifetime bachelorette bash? Of course, there are other fun (and not so clichéd) ways to celebrate your impending nuptials while bonding with your BFFs. From pampering spa treatments to bake-offs and krazy karaoke sessions, here are 8 great ideas for an epic hen night in Singapore. Share this with the bridesmaids!
1. Live it up in luxury at a swanky hotel
Check into the stunning Villa du Jardin at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort and Spa: the ultimate private party pad for any hen's night. Spanning 300 square metres and equipped with two bedrooms and a private pool , there's plenty of space to party with your girls. So gather the squad and get ready for a night of bonding in total luxury. Contact Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort and Spa's Events team at +65 6708 8310 or H9474-SB5@sofitel.com for more information on the packages they offer.
2. Get primped and pampered
Nothing says 'girl time' better than a day of primping and pampering at the spa. Facials, massages, mani pedis...need we say more? For the ultimate pre-party experience, pop into Blow + Bar for their makeover packages. Besides getting your hair, nails, and makeup done, Blow + Bar also serves complimentary bubbly or wine to get you in a party-ready mood.
3. Cook up a storm
Want to pick up a new skill while bonding with the girls? Unleash your inner Martha Stewart at Cookyn Inc's culinary classes, where you'll get to whip up local and international delights in private sessions of up to 20 persons. Got a sweet tooth? Then have a bake-off with your gal pals instead at Baker's Brew Studio and learn the fine art of dessert-making (cakes, macarons, tarts, creme brûleés) for a truly delectable bachelorette's bonding experience.
4. Sail the high seas on a yacht
For a taste of the high life, why not go all out by chartering a swanky yacht with the ocean right at your doorstep? Decadent as it sounds, hopping on a boat doesn't have to be outrageously expensive: Ximula Sail offers sailing trips on yachts and catamarans around the Southern Islands (Sisters' Islands, St. John's Island, and Kusu Island) at $1,000 for 10 people (food and drink not included).
Another great option is EagleWings Yacht Charters: the 68 foot-long catamaran (one of the biggest in Singapore) boasts a truly luxurious setting for any bachelorette party – a jacuzzi, fully-equipped bar, 10-seater dining space, and four luxurious cabins for overnight stays. Who can say no to that?
5. Have an intimate meal with the girls
No crowds, no interruptions – just great food and great company in a lovely private dining area for you and your girls. Not only will your possé have their own private party space to bond over dinner, you'll enjoy personalised service from the waiters too. Check out our stellar lineup of private dining rooms in Singapore that’ll leave you spoilt for choice.
6. Sing your hearts out
What’s a girls’ night out without a rousing rendition of “Total Eclipse of the Heart”? An evening of karaoke is a great way to bond while living out every bride’s superstar fantasies. Too shy to channel your inner Adele? Sing like no one's watching at K Suites: home to a selection of swanky, private themed suites that also provide a gourmet menu and bar selection to really amp up your karaoke experience.
7. Go on a girls-only getaway
For one final hurrah before losing your swinging-single status forever, channel Thelma and Louise for a girls-only trip with your besties. Beach vacay in Bali; city escape to Hong Kong; road trip to Malaysia; the world's your oyster. If you're pressed for time and hankering for a quick escape, check out these fab holiday destinations less than five hours away from Singapore.
8. Pick up a few (sexy) moves
Who says getting fit can't be fun? Pick up a few moves with your girls by trying out a pole-dancing, salsa or burlesque class – think of it as prep work for the wedding night! If you bachelorettes prefer the great outdoors, challenge yourselves with standup yoga at SUP Yoga Singapore, which incorporates both yoga and paddle boarding.
