Singapore — The pandemic has changed the world of travel as we know it. But despite most people choosing not to cross international borders for non-essential travel, the Singapore Tourism Board () announced on Tuesday (July 21) that there are up to 80 hotels that are once again open for business.

Since July 3, hotels have been able to apply to be allowed to accommodate guests for “purposes of leisure”. So far, more than  100 hotels have applied to offer this service.

The announcement coincides with a ongoing week-long school holiday, as well as two coming long weekends. These are the weekends of July 31, which celebrates Hari Raya Haji, and the Aug 9 weekend, celebrating National Day.

Of course, hotels that are allowed to open must practise strict safety rules and mandates to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 on their premises.

Such rules include a reduced number of guests within the hotel premises, as well as a smaller number of individuals allowed to mingle together.

Each must also wear a mask within all the areas of the hotel, with the exception of their rooms, while they are eating, and a select number of other activities.

In order for hotels to increase their bookings, they have added a number of freebies that they do not usually offer their guests during normal circumstances. Some of these amenities are free breakfasts, complimentary cocktails and late check-outs.

If you are looking for a hotel for your staycation, you can find the complete list of hotels that have been allowed to open for business here. / TISG
