However you may feel about Donald Trump’s North Korea summit, there’s one fact we can all agree on: It put Sentosa Island and the now-famous Capella Singapore on the world map.

Naturally, Capella is looking to capitalize on its newfound fame — the already-pricey hotel recently launched a special “Path to Peace” package, which, in the property’s own words, allows guests to “Relive the moment of a new era where the seeds of peace were planted on 12 June 2018.”

While pre-tax base rooms are available starting at about $400 on select dates, when booking a nonrefundable rate, the Path to Peace package includes a stay in a one-bedroom Garden Villa, where nightly rates usually run 920 Singapore dollars (about $675) and up before tax.

The Path to Peace package is priced at 1,150 SGD (about $840), which actually matches the Best Available Rate, with an identical 48-hour cancellation policy.

So, relatively speaking, the package is actually a very good deal — you’re paying the Best Available Rate, but getting a whole lot more for your money, considering what’s included:

  • One-bedroom Garden Villa
  • Daily breakfast for two
  • Lunch or dinner at Cantonese restaurant Cassia
  • Private tour of the summit venues
  • “Exclusive DPRK-US Summit 2018 Medallion”

One-bedroom Garden Villas measure 1,431 square feet, and feature a private outdoor plunge pool — quite a luxury for a city hotel.

Cassia is generally well reviewed, meanwhile, and while it’s not exactly clear what’s included, an a-la-carte dinner there can easily run upward of $100, depending on what you get.

Following the success of Crazy Rich Asians, Singapore’s surely going to become even more popular with tourists, especially for travelers stopping over en-route to another destination in Asia. While there are a handful of hotels priced far lower than the Capella — including several new properties, such as the super-slick Andaz — if you’re looking to kick off a luxurious adventure in style, Path to Peace could offer a decent value, even if you decide to skip out on the (priceless) summit venue tour.
