For many Australians, family comes first and when it comes to holidays, they like to find a destination that will allow them to break away from their daily routine and wipe away the stress of everyday life.
When travelling with multiple family members it is also important that the trip is suitable for both parents and their children. However, travelling with little ones can be tricky if your chosen holiday destination does not provide child-friendly facilities. You can now put aside that worry for your next trip to Singapore; Far East Hospitality is proud to introduce brand new child friendly rooms at Village Hotel Bugis.
Chief Executive Officer Far East Hospitality, Arthur Kiong explained: “Safety and comfort are some of the most important elements for parents when deciding on a holiday destination, ensuring it will be enjoyable for both them and their children. Far East Hospitality understands the joy of being able to have the whole family partake in the excitement of going on holidays and bringing home the memories created. The child friendly rooms at Village Hotel Bugis have been released to show our commitment to broaden our wings and provide an offering for all types of travellers, including families.”
Available now, Australian families can book and experience the newly launched kids-themed rooms at Village Hotel Bugis. The eight room rooms are uniquely designed around the theme of children’s movies; Captain America, Princess Sofia, Big Hero 6 and Cars and can accommodate a family of 2 adults and 1 child comfortably, with the option for an adjoining room for families with older children.
The rooms include vibrant tones, reminiscent of their bedroom at home as well as bathroom amenities such as bath toys, kid’s toothbrushes and bath gels with the option for inclusion of a baby bathtub and cot for children under two years-old. This aims to create an environment children will settle into with pleasure and ease, making them feel at home. To add to the fun, the kids will receive a colouring book and have access to Cartoon Network and Okto television channels.

Located on Arab Street and Kampong Glam enclave, a mere stone’s throw away from Bugis Village and Little India, Village Hotel Bugis is at the crossroads of Singapore’s Arab, Peranakan and Indian enclaves. These multicultural and multinational influences can be experienced in the Indian, Chinese and international cuisines at the hotel’s three dining options.
Guests can explore the side streets of Kampong Glam, Bugis Village and Haji Lane, which has small boutique outlets stocked with fashion labels not easily found in the Singapore malls. They can also indulge in a shopping spree at the Bugis Junction and Bugis+ shopping centres. The Bugis MRT station, which is just a 5-minute walk away, connects guests to the Orchard shopping belt or the Central Business Districts of City Hall or Raffles City.
Far East Hospitality recommends the following child-friendly attractions around the area:
- Eat Play Love Café
Dining at Eat Play Love gets your children’s creative juices flowing, with a table specially set for craft-making with the provided art materials in-house – create little works of art or DIY products, at a nominal rate of S$5 for 2 hours. This cafe is a popular venue for a kid’s party, with a Thai-Western fusion menu offering nothing too complex or spicy for little ones.

- The Children Little Museum
The Children Little Museum houses an impressive collection of memorabilia and old-school toys. From tikam tikam to tin robots to old-style pick-up-stix, there are surprises waiting to be discovered and reminisced especially for parents. And it will most certainly be an eye-opener for the children too, giving parents the perfect opportunity to share what kind of toys and items they had while growing up.
