Stay­ca­tions are al­ways a good idea, es­pe­cially if you’re in dire need to de­stress and take a break. How­ever, for those watch­ing your waist­line, all-you­can-eat ba­con and crois­sants at break­fast buf­fets and lux­u­ri­ous cham­pagne brunches might be too tough to re­sist. Leave those wor­ries be­hind – you’ll be safe from temp­ta­tion at th­ese ho­tels.

HIL­TON SIN­GA­PORE: VERDE KITCHEN

Us­ing mainly sus­tain­ably-sourced in­gre­di­ents and leafy greens grown in their own vertical gar­den, this new restaurant in Hil­ton Sin­ga­pore of­fers sal­ads with su­per­foods and health­ier ver­sions of South-East Asian dishes.

Post-work­out, re­fuel with a glass of Pro­tein & Nuts Re­cov­ery Smoothie ($13) made with nu­tri­ent-rich al­mond milk, banana and whey pro­tein. For mains, you won’t go wrong with the Or­ganic Basil-crusted Glacier 51 Tooth Fish ($38). The cod fish comes with a side of lo­cal mush­rooms, pota­toes and a nat­u­ral thyme jus.

Count on the culi­nary team to keep your sugar, salt and sat­u­rated fat lev­els in check as they are trained in health­ier cooking meth­ods and prac­tices. For in­stance, both the Flour­less Cho­co­late Cake ($14) and Home­made Gula Me­laka Ice Cream ($14) aren’t over­whelm­ingly rich or sweet – good enough as a rel­a­tively guilt-free dessert treat.

YOTEL SIN­GA­PORE: GRAINS & HOPS RESTAURANT AND BAR

For your grain bowl fix, head to Yotel Sin­ga­pore’s all-day din­ing restaurant, which of­fers nine rice bowls topped with flavour­ful skew­ers.

There are four types of grains: multi­grain, bas­mati, gar­lic quinoa and Grains & Hops’ sig­na­ture pur­ple sticky rice – an an­tiox­i­dant-rich grain that is nat­u­rally gluten-free. For a health­ier meal, we rec­om­mend grilled op­tions such as the Grilled Miso Salmon Fish ($20) or Grilled Chicken ($16) that comes with a multi­grain rice base and a house salad. On meat­less Mon­days, the Veg­e­tar­ian ($14) bowl with grilled but­ton mush­rooms, zuc­chini, and semidried to­mato po­lenta skew­ers, and aged bal­samic dress­ing on bas­mati rice won’t dis­ap­point.
