Explore the Green City


Leading the way in sustainable urban development, Singapore sells itself as a city in a garden as opposed to a garden city, and for good reason! Amidst towering skyscrapers and bustling streets, nature flourishes in abundance, with a huge number of parks, botanical gardens, and nature trails found around every corner.


Must-visit parks and trails include the Coast-to-Coast Trail if you’re an avid hiker and Gardens by the Bay for its spectacular futuristic structures and iconic Supertrees. Not forgetting the Singapore Botanic Gardens, the first and only tropical botanic garden on the UNESCO World Heritage List and one of the most beloved gardens in the city.




Dive Into the Vibrant Food Scene


Home to Michelin-Starred restaurants, UNESCO-recognised street food, and chic cocktail bars, Singapore’s incredibly diverse range of dining options make it a foodie's paradise.

At the heart of the city's culinary landscape are its hawker centres - bustling open-air food courts where you’ll find dozens of stalls serving some of the tastiest food in town.


Venture beyond, and you’ll discover a thriving restaurant scene, which boasts an impressive array of 55 Michelin-starred fine-dining establishments. Among them is the renowned French restaurant Les Amis, under the expert guidance of Chef Sebastien Lepinoy, and Zén, an interactive dining experience that combines Nordic cuisine, with a touch of Japanese elegance. Offering visitors a delicious melting pot of global cuisine, it’s safe to say you won’t ever go hungry in Singapore!

Soak in the World’s Highest Infinity Pool


If you’re looking for the ultimate place to relax and unwind, spend a luxurious afternoon within the clouds atop Marina Bay Sands Skypark Infinity Pool, the world’s largest rooftop swimming pool. Perched 57 levels high, this architectural marvel offers a serene oasis above the bustling city, where you can enjoy a spectacular view of Singapore’s Marina Bay.

Hit the Spa


There's nothing like a full day at the spa to put your mind and body in relaxation mode, and with Singapore’s slew of world-class spas, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Indulge in a world of tranquillity and wellness at Marina Bay Sands’ Banyan Tree Spa, offering a diverse range of holistic treatments. Alternatively, you can experience the ultimate rejuvenation at Yunomori Onsen and Spa, which prides itself as the top onsen and spa in Southeast Asia, fusing traditional Japanese therapies with Thai spa treatments for a seamless experience.


Visit in June and you'll have the opportunity to join the three-week Wellness Festival, which features a wide array of activities such as guided nature walks, pop-up spa experiences, and wellbeing sessions held at iconic landmarks - including forest bathing sessions at Changi Airport!

Travelling to Singapore:



What is the best airport to fly to?


Seletar Airport (XSP) is a great starting point for exploring Singapore and has become a preferred choice for many clients due to its closer proximity to the city. Seletar's Business Aviation Centre may be smaller than Changi Airport (SIN), but it has a lot to offer private jet travellers. During our recent tour of the private terminal, we were impressed by the luxurious executive lounge and the VIP amenities. Boasting a private drop-off area and dedicated immigration security screening, you can expect a seamless and stress-free travel experience when flying from Singapore.



What is the best type of aircraft to charter?


To ensure you have a luxurious travel experience, we recommend aircraft that offer a good combination of range, cabin space, and luggage space. Our Charter Managers will work closely with you to suggest the most suitable private jet depending on cabin preference, onboard requirements, group size and luggage.
