Nestled amidst Singapore’s bustling cityscape lies a serene and idyllic retreat: chalets. 

These charming abodes have become a familiar go-to for many Singaporeans. Think back to those schooling days—it’s likely some of you have made some fond memories then. Whether it is at the Pasir Ris chalet or Changi chalet, chances are you’ve enjoyed a rejuvenating break over the school holidays, standing by the fiery BBQ pit with your trusty sling bag by your side as you await a plate of probably-burnt hot dogs or chicken wings. 

Unlike conventional hotel stays, which can feel a little clinical, or Sentosa resorts that can be on the pricier side, chalets offer a more casual and intimate connection to the great outdoors complete with a cheaper price tag. If you’d like something different from the regular hotel staycations, we’ve gathered some of the best chalets you can find in Singapore.

1. The Chevrons: Classy & chic in the west

West-siders, rejoice! If you’re looking for a relaxing chalet stay, you don’t always need to travel all the way to the eastern shores of Singapore. The Chevrons is situated in Boon Lay and is well-known for its comprehensive range of facilities and activities that cater to groups of all sizes looking for a delightful staycation experience.

Initially set up by the British Armed Services, the club was a hot spot for soldiers back in 1951. It then became a social venue for troops of diverse backgrounds. Today, the chalet features a variety of room options. 

These sleek modern rooms are priced differently depending on your preference. There are rooms going from S$270/night and spacious bungalows from S$370/night for members of the public, with some rooms offering pull-out beds for greater versatility. These bungalows provide enough sleeping space to host at least seven adults at once, and chalet guests are typically recommended to check in from 2:00pm onwards. 

One of Chevrons’ biggest draws lies in its wide range of facilities. The club not only has multiple swimming pools and a fun water play area for kids, it also has various facilities for sports enthusiasts with tennis, badminton and basketball courts.

Aside from that, you’d also find dining options—like the al-fresco Poolside Cafe that serves a selection of both local delights and international dishes. That’s not all. Guests can also choose to indulge in karaoke sessions or unwind at the bar after a long day’s worth of activities.

Rest assured if you fail to plan in advance for any BBQ needs. The Chevrons is within close proximity to Jurong East MRT, as well as large shopping malls like IMM, Jem and Westgate. That means you can easily stock up on party supplies like food and cutlery if need be. That said, do note that The Chevrons is primarily a membership-only club. Non-members, however, can also make room and facilities bookings on certain dates if they’re available.

Just remember to pack enough body sunscreen whether you’re planning to lounge by the pool or bask in the outdoors—you wouldn’t want to spend the rest of your stay sunburnt.

Chalets here are equipped with all the basic amenities you’d need: Air-conditioning, private bathrooms with queen-sized beds, TV and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Families with young children can consider opting for themed rooms like the Rainforest Family Room from S$358. The walls of this room are donned with vibrant animal murals and earthy green tones that are sure to delight the young ones. Plus it comes with a bunk bed—the dream bed of any kid!

If you haven’t already heard, the Civil Service Club (CSC) is a social club for members and public service officers.

To live out the cottagecore dream, opt for the cottage-style bungalows at Fairy Point that are priced at S$475/night. This is a colonial seaside cottage that’s the crème de la crème among the available rooms; precisely because it boasts a private courtyard and direct access to the beach.

5. HomeTeamNS: Your next fuss-free, polished stay

East siders stay winning—an all-new HomeTeamNS Clubhouse was launched in March 2023 in Bedok Reservoir. Safe to say, it’s already a popular fuss-free hangout spot. Just to name a few standout facilities: an infinity pool, polished 3-storey deluxe villas with attached barbecue pits, you get the picture.

If you’re planning for a special occasion or celebration, consider an overnight stay at the Premium Reservoir Villa. True to its name, what you’ll notice when walking into this room is its high ceiling and aesthetically-pleasing spiral light fixture. Windows here are also wide and tall enough, such that tonnes of natural light enters. This gives the overall villa a bright and airy vibe.

Unlike other chalets, HomeTeamNS at Bedok Reservoir’s villas also offers a chill rooftop terrace. You’d find a sheltered BBQ pit attached to each estate. Best of all? The grill here is electric. That means no more worrying about depleting charcoal or constant fanning of flames. In other words, cooking would be as easy as it would be at home.

Speaking of home, utensils are available in each room too. If you’re not up for BBQ, simply whip up a simple dish (instant noodles never disappoints) using pots, pans and tongs provided in the kitchenette.

Fitspos can consider burning out some calories after a night’s worth of feasting at the clubhouse gym—Fitness Workz Garage. Get a rewarding workout on the available treadmills while you’re there, or cycle with the view of Bedok reservoir right before your eyes!
