Gather your family or friends, fire up the barbecue, and relive the good ol’ days when COVID-19 wasn’t even heard of and chalet staycations were all the rage.

Don’t get me wrong, hotels are a great option for a local getaway but sometimes all you want is to relax, unwind and not worry about the front desk giving you the stink eye when you try to sneak additional people into your room (because who hasn’t done this?), and that’s where chalets come in. Think of them as no-frills hotels with spaces built for gatherings, and amenities that include barbecue pits, bowling alleys, swimming pools and even mahjong rooms.

Unlike hotel rates that fluctuate based on demand, most chalets have fixed rates that are priced according to specific days of the week and periods of the year instead. Here are the three common periods that most chalets use when pricing their rates, ranked from the cheapest to the most expensive:

  • Off-peak: Mondays to Thursdays
  • Peak: Fridays to Sundays and eve of public holidays
  • Super-peak: School holidays, public holidays, and public holidays-in-lieu

Do note that off-peak and super-peak prices can differ by more than $100 depending on the type of accommodation you’ve picked.

Remember Costa Sands Resort Downtown East? Well, it has recently undergone a massive facelift and has been renamed as D’Resort @ Downtown East. Gone are the days of dimly-lit rooms that looked as if they were used as a horror film set, it now offers rooms that are bright and properly furnished (including beds that do not squeak or smell funky) — just like what you’ve come to expect from a 4-star hotel room. Best part about having a chalet staycation here would be the tonne of entertainment options and shops nearby or require items for an impromptu barbecue.

Good for small get-togethers with family or friends, the double-storey room features 2 bedrooms, 2 toilets, basic kitchen and is situated right in front of the swimming pool. But if you’re looking for a bigger space or want more privacy, consider their bungalow option that features 3 bedrooms, 3 toilets, a fully equipped kitchen and private barbecue area.

Getting there by public transport: 

  • Free shuttle bus service from Tanah merah MRT station to National Service Resort & Country Club

Tucked away in a quiet part of Tanah Merah is where you will find the most affordable chalet on this list. A fully-equipped kitchen, large swimming pool, private barbecue pit, 2 free bowling games per stay, free parking (for 1 car) are just some of the amenities and perks you will enjoy when you stay at one of NSRCC’s chalet bungalows. 

The only downside to this tranquil chalet getaway is its slightly inconvenient location as there are no public transport options nearby and the free shuttle bus service only operates once every hour. That said, if you’ve got plans to stay at least 2 nights and just want to escape from the grind, this would be a small price to pay.

  1. Call in a favour and get a relative or friend who is a club member, military personnel or civil servant to help you book the chalet as they usually get preferred rates. This might be a little troublesome because you’ll also need their help with the initial check-in, but this hassle could save you a couple of hundred bucks. 
  2. Book early, preferably at least 2 to 3 months before your intended chalet staycation. Not only will you secure a sureshot booking and prevent yourself from having a panic attack (because chalet staycations are seeing a revival and during my research for this article, quite a few chalets are already fully booked for the next month), but you can also enjoy early bird discounts to the tune of 35% off. 
  3. Conduct research and compare prices. Some chalets are listed on hotel booking sites like Agoda, Expedia or Booking.com, so be sure to check them before booking directly. Not to mention, if you book through hotel booking sites, you can not only earn member points, but there’s also a high possibility that there’s a credit card specific promotion that you can take advantage of. 

Charge your chalet staycation on the right credit card to make your money work harder for you. With every transaction on the right card, you can earn cashback, points and even air miles that can be used to fund your next overseas trip. Compare and apply for a credit card through us today and get rewarded* with cash and attractive prizes!
