In the throes of the pandemic these last two years, hotels had to find ways to diversify their services – platforms like Dayuse allowed these properties to rethink the way they package their services.
Like many in Singapore, I’ve been working from home for most of the last two years. At first, being able to work from home felt like a luxury.
One of the many things that the pandemic has taught us is the importance of taking a break from work, even if you’re not leaving the country for a holiday.
With staycations being an alternative to the travel restrictions, fast-growing global hotel daytime booking platform Dayuse recently launched in Singapore, offering luxury rooms to boutique hotels available for booking at various time slots for a few hours between 6am to 11pm.
Thankfully, booking platforms like Dayuse offer a solution by curating an on-de- mand list of hotel rooms that you can book on the spot, based on your budget and needs.
Rather than spend the night, lovebirds can choose to indulge in a daytime romp at a hotel with some romantic activities through daytime hotel booking platform Dayuse.
Valentine’s day is coming up and if you’re strapped for time and have cash to spare, staycations can make for a mini romantic “getaway” with minimal planning.
The pitch here is pretty straightforward. A daytime use of hotel rooms and amenities at up to 75 percent off the price. It's pretty sweet. Considering the number of times I've googled iterations of 'hotel pool day use' amounting to a mess of search results to filter and compare, this platform is clearly A Genius Idea in my books.

What if we told you that Dayuse — a booking platform for microstays — meant that you can do whatever you want in any hotel room on any day of the week? What if we then told you that this conception of a daycation (though you can do staycations too) can start for less than SGD$90? What if we also told you that co-founder David Lebée will even allow you to book without a credit card and cancel for free up to the last minute? Well, just need on folks because this is how he’s making Dayuse the platform to book your next in-hotel adventure.
Founded in 2010, Dayuse was created by David Lebée in Paris to meet the demand of customers in hospitality who were looking for a place to rest for a few hours as they explored the area. From a booking platform, it evolved into a mobile app. Then in 2015, the company raised 15 million euros in a series A investment round, sparking off an expansion in the United States, Hong Kong and now Singapore. We speak to CEO and founder of Dayuse, Lebée, to find out why they continue to be one of the top options for daycations whether you’re in Paris or Singapore.
Stay in a hotel without forking out the usual big bucks with a daycation. Through the new booking platform Dayuse, guests can book a stay in more than a hundred hotels in Singapore, for just half a day, at a fraction of usual prices.
The urge to book a hotel stay without a passport just to lepak has led us to the term “staycation”, and in case you haven’t heard, “daycations” are now a thing too. Daycations are a great way to get access to hotel facilities and amenities at the fraction of usual prices – perfect for all those who proclaim “I’m not going to pay just to spend half the time sleeping”.
Booking platform Dayuse has launched in Singapore to provide users with an array of daytime reservations and experiences across its portfolio of over 100 hotel partners in the market. On top of the run-of-the-mill "per night" staycation offerings, Dayuse will allow users to book rooms at designated time slots or for a span of a few hours from 6am to 11pm, freeing guests from defined check-in and check-out times.
When Mr. Toby Cai and his friends were backpacking in Thailand two years ago, they wanted to book a hotel room for the afternoon to freshen up before a trekking expedition. Unable to find one, the trio wound up paying for a night's stay, but left after 3 hours. Walking through the corridors they also realized many rooms were empty during the day. That was our “aha” moment. We realized there was a need for instant daytime bookings, says Mr Cai, 32, one of three co-founders of Stayr.
