Things To Do As A Couple In Singapore
The best thing about planning a romantic date in Singapore is that the beautifully green yet urban city can be so versatile, depending on your whims and budget. From dinner that doesn't require you to open your eyes, to a simplistically indulgent afternoon in lush greenery or soft, warm sand, you'll see that there's something memorable you can do to celebrate your love.
Picnic at the Marina Barrage
For couples that don't want to spend too much money and still have a good time, there's nothing more pleasant than a breezy afternoon picnicking at the Marina Barrage. For a bit of playful bonding, why not try flying a kite? Kites can be purchased at the Barrage Cove, which is a convenience store at the barrage selling products from frisbees to UV protection gear. The reservoir is strategically set behind the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel so you can be sure to end off the afternoon with a grand, red-orange sunset.
Stroll around the Singapore Botanic Gardens
Lace up your walking shoes and get your share of tropical flora and fauna right in the heart of the city. The Singapore Botanic Gardens consists of a number of themed gardens, a Swan Lake, gorgeous gazebos and curated sculptures. Before you leave, have a meal at the famously romantic The Halia restaurant, and enjoy a truly unique dining experience surrounded by vivid greenery.
Trek the Henderson Waves bridge
Just because you’re on holiday doesn't mean that your lifestyle should automatically be classified as sedentary or ‘eat, shop, sleep - repeat’. The elevated pedestrian bridge - at 38 m above ground - is perfect for couples who like to exercise together, sweat it out, and appreciate beautiful scenery when they come across it. On the Henderson Waves bridge, you can expect to get one of the most beautiful, panoramic sunset views in Singapore, so don’t forget your camera!
Drink the Skyline
With a number rooftop bars to choose from, you can be sure to enjoy yourselves lounging and sipping a heavenly cocktail with a fabulous view of Singapore's awe (and Instagram)-worthy skyline. For a grand night, we suggest 1-Altitude, perched on the 63rd floor for a 360 degree view of the city; or the Lantern Rooftop Bar located in the Fullerton Bay Hotel, for something a little less busy.
Pamper Yourselves at a Spa
Hey, you don't have to tell us how tense a couple's vacation can get sometimes, what with the planning, the culture shocks, and the not-so-great meals on airplanes. But remember - you're on holiday! Relax and recharge at a couple spa, primed for romance and rejuvenation, with a massage, facial, and an air of exclusivity that comes second to none. For something higher up on the posh scale, try internationally-acclaimed Banyan Tree Spa on level 55 of the Marina Bay Sands hotel.
Sleep in Style at the Ocean Suite
Got some serious dough? Celebrating a special moment? Really mark the occasion with an Ocean Suite -- a beach villa at the Resorts World Sentosa with an out of this world underwater view -- that costs around SGD 2,000 per night. The special suite will come with a sunken jacuzzi bathtub next to open ocean tank viewing window, an outdoor jacuzzi in the living room patio and more amenities and facilities that will make your stay possibly the most romantic one possible.
Dine in the Dark
Trust is an essential part of any healthy relationship, and what better way to trust each other than dining in the dark? Mystery meals await at NOX, a restaurant that serves meals in pitch black darkness, so you'll be able to enjoy your dinner with your other four senses especially heightened. Furthermore, it's not just about the concept; the prie fixe dinner (SGD 88++ per pax) comes with 12 dishes over 3 courses, with an option to pair your meal with drinks.
How well do you really know your partner? You’ll get your answer when you paint with them, one brush stroke at a time. We like the concept behind the Artify Studio’s Art Jam sessions, which allows each person to pay what they want (although they do encourage participants to give SGD 35 and more to use for their social initiatives). Additionally, all art materials including paint, aprons, and more, will be provided so you don’t have to worry about lugging around any sponges or brushes!
