It’s never too early to make plans on where to catch the 2020 new year fireworks in Singapore. If you want unobstructed views of the fireworks display and prefer avoiding human traffic and choped seats, then we’d suggest booking a staycation and that too early! You’ll be able to enjoy great skyline views, yummy food and drinks, a new year bash and a comfy bed to crash on! Sounds good? Then read on!
Watch the new year fireworks in Singapore from these hotels…
1. Marina Bay Sands Hotel
55 storeys high, Marina Bay Sands Hotel will provide you with the perfect vantage point of the new year fireworks in Singapore! Choose to catch them while shimmying it up at the multi-concept Lavo or taking a dip in the world-famed infinity pool, we’d say either one is a winner!
We’re not judging if you and your partner choose to usher in the new year in the privacy of your hotel room. Take in the view of the fireworks lighting up the sky through the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the bay and share some wine before your nightcap. Have the first breakfast of 2020 with high tea at The Shoppes and maybe head for some cultural immersion at the numerous nearby museums afterwards!
Address: 10 Bayfront Avenue, S(018956)
2. The Fullerton Bay Hotel
This is one hotel to see and to be seen at. Don’t be beguiled by its relatively shorter height of just six storeys, its prime location overlooking Marina Bay offers front-row seats to the new year fireworks in Singapore! Fully dressed in glass, take in the dizzying views of the surrounding hubbub while relaxing in the lush rooms.
Once dusk sets in, we’d suggest glamming up and heading to La Brasserie, the hotel’s renowned French restaurant. If you prefer a more bustling dining place, check out the nearby Mexican restaurant, Super Loco at Customs House. But be sure to come back in time for the fireworks which you can catch from the hotel’s rooftop bar, The Lantern.
Address: 80 Collyer Quay S(049326)
3. Naumi Hotel
We love this boutique luxury hotel for its modern minimalistic style. Through the use of clean colours and angular mirrors, it also boasts fashion and art inspired rooms with classy Coco Chanel and colourful Andy Warhol inspired rooms.
This boutique hotel is just as fashionable as its address on Seah Street and is in one of the best spots from which you can watch the new year fireworks in Singapore. Eat at Table, by Rang Mahal, the hotel’s in-house Indian restaurant before heading up to The Cloud 9 infinity pool and bar area for panoramic views of the cityscape!
If you want to continue the party, Naumi Hotel is not too far off from Clarke Quay — home to some of the best bars with games to satiate your new year’s energy with!
Address: 41 Seah Street, S(188396)
4. Swissotel The Stamford
This hotel needs little introduction as it has been part of our city landscape for the last 30 years. Sitting 73 storeys tall in the heart of town, you can easily view the new year fireworks in Singapore from their classy rooms. With newly refurbished rooms following the iconic Swiss characteristics of practicality and elegance, your stay here will be a breeze.
Dining and drinking options are abound too! Choose to enjoy the fireworks from Skai, contemporary grill restaurant and bar. Or head to Jaan by Kirk Westaway — a one Michelin-starred restaurant, with a dining philosophy focusing on ‘Reinventing British’ cuisine. Both these romantic restaurants are perfect to ring in the new year with that special someone.
Address: 2 Stamford Road, S(178882)
We spy delicious Christmas themed menus at Swissotel The Stamford
5. Pan Pacific Singapore
With its enviable address on Raffles Boulevard, this is not only one of the best hotels to catch the new year fireworks from but one of the best hotels in Singapore period. Indulge in the smorgasbord of dining and entertainment options including Teppanyaki at Keyaki Japanese Restaurant, champagne Sunday brunch at Edge Food Theatre and the kitschy nightclub, LuLu’s Lounge. Rolled in with top-class facilities and service, you’ll not be disappointed while spending your last day of 2019 here!
Usher in the new year with a glittering view of fireworks and a tipple or two from The Pacific Club, on the 38th floor — we hear a year-end soiree is taking place here. If you’re there with your little ones (they have a jungle gym for the kids!) and prefer to avoid the gala, then count down straight from your room!
Address: 7 Raffles Boulevard, S(039595)
We spy Pan Pacific’s Fireworks by the Bay 2019 Package here
6. The Westin Singapore
You may have often mistaken this hotel for an office building and we don’t blame you. The Westin Singapore occupies the 32nd to 46th floors of a glass building and traditionally draws a corporate crowd. But this little caveat may also allow you to get rooms here if you make last minute staycation plans — so don’t dismiss it just yet!
On level 33, Cook & Brew offers a delicious line-up of craft beer and creative bar bites — have those while perched on their high stools and savour the view. We, however, recommend going up close to the action with a dip in their rooftop pool. Watch the new year fireworks in Singapore light up against the backdrop of the island’s south coast — a truly divine combo indeed!
Address: Asia Square Tower 2, 12 Marina View, S(018961)
We spy festive menus at their numerous restaurants. Find out more here.
7. Andaz Singapore
This new kid on the block has already raised some eyebrows since opening in 2017. Housed in Duo Galleria, the striking pair of honeycombed skyscrapers in Bugis, Andaz Singapore occupies the 25th – 39th floor. The interior decor is inspired from surrounding shophouses in Arab Street — doorbells are designed to look like shophouse post boxes while bathroom doors are shutter-style.
Out of its numerous dining and drinking options, you must not miss the highly-raved, rooftop bar, Mr Stork. Nestled on the 39th floor, it offers unadulterated 360-degree views of the city skyline. Pick from their innovative cocktails or perhaps a pint of Andaz Pale Ale — yup, that’s the hotel’s very own brew! Did we also mention that the bar is littered with teepees? Cosy up with your special someone and star gaze — or rather new year firework gaze!
Address: 5 Fraser Street, S(189354)
We spy a new year party, NYE dinner buffet spread and a new year afternoon tea set, yum! Find out more here.
8. JW Marriott Singapore South Beach
If you’re looking for chic contemporary rooms, great hotel facilities and views to die for, then JW Marriott Singapore South Beach delivers on all counts. The hotel boasts 13 different room types, a luxury spa, a 24/7 fitness centre and a multitude of dining and drinking options!
But it’s the rooftop infinity pool which sealed the deal for us. It promises a gorgeous view of the new year fireworks in Singapore while the shallow water and sofas offer the perfect photo op to make your friends jealous! We’d be booking that staycation now if we were you!
9. Travelodge Harbourfront
If you’re on a budget or making last minute new year plans, then book a stay at Travelodge Harbourfront. Cosy up in their minimalist rooms and infinity pool overlooking lush greenery — truly an urbanite’s sanctuary! Maybe the new year will also bring new motivations to get fit! If you’re feeling so, you could start the new year right on a hiking trail at Mount Faber, a short distance away from the hotel!
You’ll still get to enjoy the fireworks, albeit from Sentosa. Head to the countdown party at Travelodge Harbourfront’s Sky Bar and enjoy fancy reasonably priced cocktails and yummy bar snacks.
Address: 50 Telok Blangah Road, S(098828)
We spy a New Year’s Eve Countdown Party at Sky Bar. Find out more here.
10. Marina Mandarin Singapore
Marina Mandarin is another hotel in the Marina Bay area that offers vantage views of new year fireworks in Singapore. It has 575 guestrooms with rooms for both business and leisure travellers and even includes family rooms! Yup, you heard us right. If you’re planning a family staycation, then you’d appreciate the Play 4 Fun room — a children’s playroom to entertain your littlest family members.
But that’s not all! Their dining offerings are something else altogether. From fine Cantonese cuisine to steaks at one of the world’s best steakhouses, you’ll surely be enjoying a gluttonous holiday here.
Address: 6 Raffles Boulevard, S(039594)

11. Mandarin Oriental, Singapore
Mandarin Oriental’s iconic shaped fan is instantly recognisable and is a hallmark for opulence and grandeur.

Afterwards, indulge in the smorgasbord of dining options from their cafes and bars.
If you have the cash to splurge, choose from their cool stay packages including a Singapore By Sidecar package and Instagram Your Way Through Marina Bay package — where you’ll get tips on how to capture the best images from an influencer.

12. Destination Hotel Beach Road
Psst, we’ll let you in on a little secret, you don’t actually have to pay tons of money for front row seats to watch the new new year fireworks in Singapore. Destination Hotel Beach Road boasts over 300 rooms for both business and leisure travellers with comfy Hypnos beds to guarantee a good year-end rest. If you’re a cinephile, then you’ve got to pencil in a trip to the nearby, The Projector — an ode to the old-school movie-going experience. Otherwise, satisfy your tummies at Folklore, the hotel’s in-house restaurant serving up delicious local food.
You’ll be able to catch the new year fireworks in Singapore from the hotel’s rooftop pool so be sure to pack along those stylish one-piece swimsuits! Although the view may not hold the same grandeur of the above hotels, the experience will surely evoke a yesteryear charm that’s hard to get elsewhere.
Address: 700 Beach Road, S(199598)
We spy a yummy Christmas themed menu at Folklore available from 1-31 Dec. More details here
13. Fairmont Singapore
Swissotel’s next-door neighbour deserves a place on this list too. Check into their Deluxe or Deluxe Harbour View Room and be greeted with a sweeping view of Marina Bay. Soak in the new year fireworks in Singapore while enjoying the NYE BBQ Buffet at Alligator Pear, their poolside restaurant and bar. But don’t stop the party there! Head to Bar Rouge — one of the hottest nightclubs in town and be spotted among the glitterati.
And if you don’t wake up with a hangover the next day, be sure to take advantage of the numerous hotel facilities. Gear up for a tennis match at one of their six outdoor courts or pamper yourself to a body massage at the in-house spa, Willow Stream Spa.
Address: 80 Bras Basah Road, S(189560)
