Glamp your ‘Gram with picturesque staycays at Jewel Changi Airport

Posted on

Magical glamping trip under a blanket of stars amongst lush greenery with aircon and without the bugs?? Sign me up, please. 

When I heard Jewel Changi Airport is launching their glampcation packages for the first time ever, I was psyched. I’ve always loved nature, so sleeping under the stars is absolutely amazing—until I become food for mosquitoes and wake up from my sleeping bag with a serious backache. Not so magical anymore.

Given that travel is out of the picture this year, we reckon it’ll be snapped up in a jiffy—even before you can say the word glampcation—so fastest fingers first! Kudos to Jewel for thinking of this, since Singaporeans are constantly searching for places to relax and recharge locally for the holidays—and clear annual leave!

For staycay, choose from 2 main packages: Glampcation in the Clouds (at the HSBC waterfall vortex) and Glampcation at Shiseido Forest Valley. It costs $320 per night on weekdays (Mon to Thu) and $360 per night on weekends (Fri to Sun).

Bookings are now open and there’s a 10% discount for the soft launch this weekend (20 to 22 Nov), $324 per tent; and for weekdays (23 to 26 Nov), $288 per tent.

A caveat: check-in is super late and check-out super early. For Glampcation in the Clouds, you will only be able to check in at 7:00pm and be out by 10am the next morning. For Glampcation at Shiseido Forest Valley, it’s worse—check in time is almost bedtime at 11:30pm, and you’ll have to check out early the next morning at 9:00am. Not exactly a chill staycay, if you ask me.

Adorned with sparkly fairy lights, your glamping tent is definitely gorg enough for endless photo ops for the ‘Gram. No need to pitch your own tent even—just arrive and get cozy. Dapao from one of Jewel’s many restaurants and enjoy a slow candlelit dinner in your tent. The next morning, wake up to naturey sounds of waterfall and soak in views of the majestic HSBC Rain Vortex just outside your tent. If you’re an early riser, you could even have a picnic breakfast outside near the waterfall—beautiful, Kinfolk style.

Wake up from your bed in glamping tents that look like something straight out of a movie set—or adventure-themed wedding décor. Step outside and be surrounded by gorgeous, lush greenery in a beautiful forest setting—with all your Earthly comforts. Note that check-in time for this package is later than the other, from 11:30pm onwards.
