With all the long weekends coming up, it’s time to plan staycays with friends – whether it’s to wind down together, catch up, or to celebrate birthdays or upcoming weddings.
But most hotel rooms are twin or triple sharing, or require you to book 2 adjoining rooms if you have 4 or more people. That’s why we were thrilled to discover that there are some big hotel rooms in Singapore that can sleep 4-5 people – and even one that can accommodate friend groups of up to 8 people for that all-night Netflix marathon.
Things to do with groups of friends:
