Stately, elegant and historic, The Fullerton Hotel is among the best hotels to enjoy the National Day festivities. Booking a stay here will give you a front-row seat to the dazzling fireworks display that takes place just across the water.
For the ultimate indulgence, go ahead and book the Marina Bay View Room (S$1,435 per night), which comes with your own private balcony overlooking the Marina Bay that’s just perfect for the occasion.

Best room for fireworks: Terrace Room
Location: 15 Stamford Road, Singapore 178906
Contact: +65 6368 8888
Given its prime location in the heart of the city, The Capitol Kempinski Hotel is another great option for enjoying a National Day staycay. It’s within walking distance of the downtown area, but also tucked far enough away from the madness.
The Terrace Room (S$675 per night) comes with a private balcony that offers sweeping views of the Marina Bay area and the National Day fireworks.
There’s also a complimentary bottle of champagne included with this room to help your celebrations along.

Best room for fireworks: Premier or Premier Club Room
Location: 5 Coleman Street, Singapore 179805
Contact: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org | Tel: +65 6337 2200
While it may not be as glamorous as the other hotels on this list, Peninsula Excelsior Hotel nonetheless makes for a good choice for a staycation over the National Day holiday.
The hotel is offering a special National Day package that guarantees you rooms with unfettered views of the Padang as well as the fireworks over the bay.
One-night stays start from S$480, which is a little pricey, all things considered. However, the 2-night package, at S$315 per night, offers better value.
You can choose between Premier and Premier Club rooms, and your booking comes with breakfast for two.
4. Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay
Rates: National Day Celebration – S$850 per night
Best room for fireworks: Marina Bay Room
Location: 6 Raffles Blvd, Singapore 039594
Contact: Email: email@example.com | Tel: 800 852 6855
Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay is holding a special National Day Celebration promotion going at S$850 per night.
The package includes a guaranteed stay at the property’s Signature Marina Bay View Room and includes a specially curated range of exclusive celebratory amenities.
The room is favoured for its full-length windows and private balcony from which you can savour the iconic Marina Bay Skyline. Also, the property is about as close as you can get to the fireworks on the day, without actually going to the parade.
There’s also a marble-clad bathroom – complete with a deep-soaking bathtub - to enjoy your National Day staycation in luxury.
5. The Fullerton Bay Hotel
Rates: From S$723 per night
Best room for fireworks: Any Bay View room
Location: 80 Collyer Quay Singapore 049326
Contact: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org | Tel: +65 6333 8388
If you want a hotel that offers the closest view of the NDP fireworks, The Fullerton Bay Hotel will be a satisfying choice.
The luxury, high-end hotel doesn't come cheap – especially its Bay View rooms (from S$1,683 per night) that offer the best experience for enjoying the fireworks display in the comfort of your own room – but frankly, there are worse ways to spend that kind of money.
Luckily, the hotel’s at-the-water’s-edge location also means there are plenty of great alternative spots from which to watch the fireworks. The two restaurants and one bar are all oriented to face the Marina Bay waterfront.
As such, booking a lower-rate room for your staycay, and reserving a table to watch the show on the day is also a viable option.
6. Mandarin Oriental
Rates: From S$675
Best room for fireworks: Marina Bay View room or suite
Location: 5 Raffles Avenue, Marina Square, Singapore 039797
Contact: Email: email@example.com | Tel: +65 6338 0066
The venerable Mandarin Oriental remains one of the top hotels in the Marina Bay area, but securing a room for a National Day fireworks staycation may be difficult.
Due to the property’s orientation, the hotel offers mainly city views (looking towards the downtown core). Marina Bay is in the opposite direction, and rooms offering unhindered views of the fireworks show are thus quite rare, with demand heating up during National Day.
However, if you’re willing to splurge, you can opt for the higher-rate rooms, such as the Club Marina Bay Room (S$1,235 per night) to catch the NDP fireworks in splendour.
Besides exclusive club access, paying more buys you a room on the higher floors of the property, which means even more spectacular and thrilling views.
Otherwise, you know the drill: Book a lower-rate room, and enjoy the fireworks show from elsewhere in the hotel. We hear the hotel’s MO Bar is a popular choice.
7. Marina Bay Sands
Rates: From S$749
Best room for fireworks: Any room with a Harbour View
Location: 10 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018956
Contact: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org | Tel: +65 6688 8888
And of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without Marina Bay Sands.
Essentially, you can get great views of the NDP fireworks from several locations on the property.
Rooms with Harbour Views – found on the 40th floor and up – are your best options, if you can secure a booking that is. Otherwise, you can book any other room, and make your way to the infinity pool, and the sky bar located on the top floor to view the show.
Marina Bay Sands remains hugely popular even after so many years, so be prepared to mingle. Its rooms are expensive even during normal times, but sipping a cocktail while lounging by the pool as the fireworks go off overhead is a truly worthy bucket list experience.
