Village Hotel Chiangi


Looking down into the lobby with the pool behind.

This hotel isn't in the central city part of Singapore, the location makes it an economical place to stay on a short trip to Singapore.

As the name suggests, this hotel is located at Chiangi Village which is a suburb close to Chiangi airport. It's about 15 minutes to the airport, I chose to stay at this hotel as I had an overnight stopover and didn't want to go into the downtown part of Singapore. The location suited me perfectly.
For those wanting to get more of an authentic Singapore experience, this location is great. It's in a neighbourhood, walk down the main road and you're in a hawker centre with all the food stalls. The area is not at all touristy.
It is close to a beach, which is a novelty for me at least when visiting Singapore!

There are different types of rooms, I stayed in a standard room. The hotel is a location for conventions and conferences, the rooms have a desk area for anyone who wants to work while staying there.
There are 2 pools, one at ground level and the other on the roof, there are 2 restaurants, a Japanese one and an Italian restaurant next to the roof pool.

The bathroom with what seems to be the design feature of any bathroom revamp in hotels at the moment: the window into the room! There is a blind that comes down for privacy.

Ground level pool, the hotel is next to a golf course so lots of greenery around.

Roof top pool with an infinity pool

View from the roof, over to the sea and the beach can just be seen.

Optional Extras

The hotel offers free bicycle rental, there's a coastal path that can be followed for anyone wanting to explore the area. There's also a free shuttle to the airport, which is very convenient.


This hotel met my needs of being located close to the airport when on a short stopover. I did wish I had more time and would have taken advantage of the bike rental and to see more of the coastal area. I also liked that it was in a neighbourhood so the area didn't have a highly polished touristy feel to it. You do get a touch of 'real Singapore' from a local point of view.

The rooms are around a large atrium which has a glass elevator that goes up through it.
