Staycations are V2.0 of sleepovers, held without parental supervision at hotels and chalets, rather than at someone’s home. Though they’re a night or two of living luxuriously, most of us return home after that with a very empty wallet.

But that doesn’t mean we have to slog like crazy just to save up for that one night of relaxation - instead of hotels, you can look to affordable AirBnB lofts and penthouses with amenities such as private jacuzzis and outdoor balconies, AND a larger amount of space.

If you’re in need of a staycay, here are 15 sleek apartments in Singapore you can whisk yourselves to.
