Orchard Rendezvous Hotel, Singapore
It’s only when you join the ranks of parenthood, that you realise just how much mental planning is required for a holiday with kids. Everyone wants quality family fun but nobody wants to be that parent with a screaming baby on a 5-hour flight.
That’s why staycations are a total lifesaver. A short but sweet break from the mundanities of everyday life without having to actually disrupt the routine that you’ve worked so hard to put in place.
Whether you’re a working parent desperate to clock in more hours with your kiddos or just looking to reward yo’ kids for their good behaviour, here’s why you should keep the newly refurbished Orchard Rendezvous Hotel along Orchard Road on your radar:
Affordable family rooms with in-room games, bunk beds, and kid-friendly amenities
Yes, parents sacrifice a lot for their kids. But the comfort of a nice big bed during your staycay shouldn’t be one of them. You’ll be glad to know you won’t have to settle for any smaller-than-single spare beds at Orchard Rendezvous Hotel. Their spacious family rooms are configured to comfortably accommodate your tribe, no matter how big.
Family Room with Sofa Bed
Measuring a modest 40 sqm, the Family Room with Sofa Bed (40sqm) is perfect for small families of 3. Especially great for families with toddlers who hate being confined to a small space, we love how the sofa bed pulls double duty by acting as a separate mini bed for toddlers and removes the need for an in-room crib.
You won’t even have to worry about falls because the low-lying design means your little one can climb up or down with little effort.
Small touches like the stuffed animals and colourful blankets add a nice warmth to the room
Family Room with Bunk Bed
If your family runs a little larger, then opt for the Family Room with Bunk Bed (50sqm). Co-sleeping is wonderful, but when your kids start taking up as much space as you do, it’s time to unlock the next milestone of independence – having them sleep on their own.
An expansive segregated living and dining area also makes in-room feasting and lounging a hundred times more appealing
The room comes with a King-sized bed and a sturdy bunk bed for the younglings. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, from stuffed animal plushies to in-room board games, a whole slew of surprises lie in wait.
Choose from a list of in-room games to rent for the duration of your stay from Twister to UNO STACKO. You can even rent a gaming console for free for the duration of your stay – just be sure to reserve it in advance.
The in-room TV comes connected to the internet so you can stream movies and binge watch your favourite YouTube videos
Bath-wise, all family rooms come equipped with a spacious standing shower area, a tub and a special set of toiletries just for your little ones.
You’ll also find some kid-sized in-room slippers, plastic cutlery, and complimentary MILO sachets in their mini-bar replenished on the daily.
And if your children have outgrown bunk beds, you can choose to swop them for two single beds when you pick the Family Suite (60sqm) option.
And because we all know how easily kids tire of games and toys, you’ll also find a stack of children’s magazines and a kids’ activity pack in your room that’s full of colouring and DIY activities.
*BONUS* Floats and beach balls available by the pool
If you’ve got sunny days lounging by the pool on your staycay agenda, then you’ll love to know that Orchard Rendezvous Hotel has a stash of pool noodle floats and beach balls available for all guests!
Parched parents can also cool down at their pool-side bar which serves up drinks and light bites
Right in the heart of Orchard Road
Booking a child-friendly hotel often presents us with a tough choice – blow the bank for a night in a luxury hotel in town, or sacrifice location for more pocket-friendly prices.
The Lobby Bar
Orchard Rendezvous Hotel saves you the headache by giving you the best of both worlds. Its prime location on Tanglin Road puts you within walking distance of Orchard MRT, the Singapore Botanic Gardens and all the best that town has to offer.
To make things even better, you’re a 2-minute walk from Toys ‘R’ Us, Mothercare and a whole lot of other child-centric businesses over at Forum The Shopping Mall a.k.a Orchard’s most kid-friendly mall. And if you’re planning to venture a little further down Orchard Road, this list of nursing rooms in town will cover you in the case of a diaper blowout.
A family-friendly staycay in the heart of town
School might be back in full swing, but that doesn’t mean that your next family bonding session has to wait until the next term break kicks in.

The offer also includes daily complimentary breakfast and you might even be granted that 3PM late check-out if you make the request in advance*.
