The family-friendly chalet experience in Singapore!
What are chalets? We get it if you’re thinking of the Swiss Alps, sloping roofs and hot cocoa, but we’re talking about a holiday accommodation that’s the equivalent of a villa! Chalets make for fuss-free ‘home-away-from-home’-type getaways. Essentially, these holiday “homes” offer homely comforts and added perks, such as barbeque pits, private pools, game rooms and more for you and the kiddos to live it up.
Chalets also make ideal venues for family celebrations over a weekend, think birthday parties, family reunions and more. Essentially, they are a no-frills type of staycation that offers a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of city life. These micro-holidays at chalets can be the best family time and the place to host parties and celebrations for five or more people. Chalet staycations provide all the best features of a traditional holiday without the fuss of travel.
Take note of the following when booking a chalet in Singapore:
- Peak seasons: June and December, typically school holidays in Singapore.
- Prices may rise above normal during these peak seasons and public holidays.
- When booking a chalet in Singapore, check to see if the chalet is listed on sites like Agoda.com or Booking.com; you might be able to get discounted rates, especially for last-minute bookings.
5 family-friendly chalets in Singapore for weekend getaways, parties, celebrations and more!
Here’s our roundup of some family-friendly chalets to consider for weekend getaways or gatherings, or celebrations.
1. Cook up a storm and play hard with the family at The Chevrons
If you’re seeking an intimate getaway with the family to get up to some fun activities, The Chevrons might be right up your alley. Originally set by British Armed Services in 1951, The Cherons is historically a club for those serving in the army; however, you can still book the chalets and bungalows for a weekend escape with the family. The double-storey chalets feature spacious living rooms, dining areas and a kitchenette with two bedrooms on the second floor.
Each chalet also has its very own sheltered BBQ pit! So, dads or mums who love to grill are in for a treat. But that’s not all – The Chevrons also offers up oodles of fun through some fun facilities that include Boulder+, the biggest bouldering gym in Singapore, a gym and a pool. Plus, seeing as it is located in Boon Lay, you could also plan to visit the Jurong Lake Gardens nearby with the kiddos; here’s our guide!

2. Rejuvenating retreat and family fun at Aranda Country Club
You and your little ones are in for a treat at Aranda Country Club, with its luxury suites and many family-friendly facilities, which include a pool, sauna, steam room, as well as a kids’ playroom. We’re particularly excited about their Momley Loft, that’s focused on health retreats for parents, especially during the postpartum journey and more. Plus, you and the kiddos can try your hands at prawning at their newly opened Bait N Catch prawning arena featuring four freshwater ponds full of yabbies and prawns. You can also have your fresh catch grilled to perfection! And why not amp up the fun by heading with the kiddos to Wild Wild Wet, one of Singapore’s largest water parks that’s a stone’s through away from the club.
