Miele appliances, Nespresso coffee machines and yoga sessions by the pool? The slick and contemporary Fraser Residence Orchard opened in 2019 and quickly became an expat favourite for its stylish mod-cons and proximity to the Orchard Road shopping belt. Read on for the full review.
These serviced apartments have a cool hotel feel, thanks to an indoor-outdoor breakfast bar for residents, three outdoor pools, plus a steam room and sauna. There’s also a kids’ playground, daily housekeeping and in-room washing machines, which makes travelling with children infinitely more manageable. Best of all, it’s just a 15-minute taxi ride to Chinatown, where you’ll find some of the city’s best hawker centres.

One and two bedrooms are best for couples with young children and families with older kids (the two-bedroom sleeps up to four people) and have separate living spaces with plush couches and a kitchenette.

Travel for work
There’s free Wi-fi throughout the building, however studio rooms are tight on space, with only a small round table to work on. One-bedroom apartments are a better fit for business travellers, with a larger dining table.
