Staycation? Come on, you can do better than that. Let’s not conform to the mainstream idea of fun! Why not cross over the ocean to get to somewhere less… local? Besides, all the hotels in Singapore are going to be packed. Fully packed. The rooms are going to be packed. The swimming pool is going to be packed. The fitness centre is going to be packed. The restaurant is going to be packed. Well, you get the idea. It’s Valentine’s Day and every Singaporean couple will be charging their relationship by sleeping on someone else’s bed. Not the best time for a staycation, really. Get out of the country where staycations aren’t exactly their thing.

If you believe travelling overseas will cost you much, much more than a staycation, then you’re wrong! A good hotel in Singapore is going to cost you over S$300 or even S$400! However, travelling around Southeast Asia with budget airlines will save you a mountain-load of money. Go ahead and look it up on Expedia! Accompany that with the best hotel at the cheapest price found amongst the various travel merchants we have on ShopBack, and you’ll have the time of your life beyond the shores of Singapore! Sit tight, we’re going to bring you all over Southeast Asia!

Bali Paradise Hotel Boutique Resort - 1Imagine, if your vacation spans a hundred days, 99.5 of them will be spent in this resort and 0.5 of them spent travelling to the airport. Bali Paradise Hotel Boutique Resort, as the name suggest, is a paradise in Bali. Time stands still and everything that exists pretends to stop ageing (at least, for a while). Reviews of the resort seem firm on that fact that it sits on an extremely good location, where the rice fields, mountains and beaches are in full view. Apart from the excellent view, the staff are very friendly! Lovely people in a lovely place: vacations must satisfy these basic requirements.

The rooms are pretty, with dashes of elegant, contemporary design. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could visit the “Old Town” where beautiful architecture abounds. Time to snap some photos and congest your friends’ Instagram timeline with your vacation pictures!

Just imagine relaxing beneath the cloudless blue sky as time flows at its slowest. Once your soul is done recovering from Singapore’s hectic schedules, head to the ground level where you’ll be treated to a dining space that emulates the village life.

Thus, sitting pretty exclusively atop a hill in Nongsa, the view you’ll get from your resort room is magnanimous and awe-inspiring. Similarly, if the beach isn’t your idea of a great vacation (which is ridiculous), the resort will appeal to your first-world indoor heart with a snooker/billiards room, sauna, steam rooms and massages. When you’re bored of those, then the outdoor pool, 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, table tennis and even fishing might excite you!
