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”.
Enter Dayuse: a daycation booking platform where you can book a room at more than 100 hotels in Singapore without having to fork out extra for an overnight stay. Take a dip in the pool, hit up the gym or loan some complimentary board games to enjoy with your friends – just as a regular guest would.
Below are some of the more affordable daycation deals we found from just $50:
HarbourVille Hotel (Hamilton) – From $50 for a half-day stay

The newly-renovated HarbourVille Hotel at Hamilton offers a simple deluxe room from just $50. While there are no pools or gyms available, you can loan board games such as Monopoly, Jenga, Snakes and Ladders and also Poker cards for free, with movie projectors and Nintendo games at an extra charge.
