Singapore Changi Airport has snooze zones available for travellers to rest between flights. Find out where to find snooze zones at Singapore Changi in this article!

Please note: I have only included some paid lounges which are available as there are simply so many to choose from!

Are there rest areas at Changi Airport?

Singapore Changi Airport does offer a range of ‘Snooze Lounges‘ (or rest zones) in each terminal where you can get a quick kip without spending any cash.

If you choose this option, I highly recommend combining it with a Priority Pass – an airport lounge access pass – so you can freshen up and grab a meal before your next flight!

Unfortunately, unless you have a Priority Pass or lounge access there are no free shower at Changi Airport.

Find out why I think Priority Pass is a great travel gift to treat
yourself or a loved one to a little bit of extra luxury on your holiday!

Location of rest areas at Singapore Changi Airport:

  • Terminal 1 transit areas: Transit East, Level 3.
  • Terminal 2 transit areas: Oasis Lounge, Transit North Pier, opposite Gate E1, and Sanctuary Lounge, Transit North Pier, opposite Gate E5.
  • Terminal 3 transit areas: Snooze Lounge, Transit North Mezzanine, next to Singapore Food Street.
  • Terminal 4 transit areas: Snooze Lounge, Departure Transit, Level 2M.
Best Hotels to stay at Singapore Changi Airport

Important information about choosing the right Singapore Airport Hotel:

Singapore Changi Airport (or simply Changi) is a large hub airport with around 100 airlines flying to 100 countries and territories around the world!

Changi Airport has five main passenger terminals around in an elongated ‘U’ shape, with the recently opened Jewel in the centre of the shape.

Singapore Changi Airport map

Which airlines depart from which terminals at Singapore Changi Airport?

At the time of writing (Nov 2019), the terminals are as such:

  • Changi Terminal 1 – Most of these flights are regional flights, including Qantas, AirChina, Jetstar, SriLankan Airlines, Emirates, and THAI Airways.
  • Changi Terminal 2 – These flights tend to be regional and medium-haul destinations. Think SilkAir, Scoot, Air India, Malaysia Airlines, Royal Brunei Airlines and Etihad Airways. There are some exceptions like Polish Airlines LOT.
  • Changi Terminal 3 – This terminal tends to be home to long-haul destinations. Some of the airlines that operate out of here include Singapore Airlines, Air New Zealand, Qatar Airways, EVA Air, and Myanmar National Airlines
  • Changi Terminal 4 – These again tend to be regional airlines. Currently AirAsia, Cathay Pacific, Cebu Pacific, Korean Air and Vietnam Airlines
  • Changi Terminal 5 – Under construction, set to be opened mid 2030s!

Click here to find out which terminal your flight departs Changi Airport!

One of the best things about Singapore’s airport is that it is really easy to travel between terminals and the Jewel. In fact, I’d encourage you to explore multiple terminals if you have a layover because there is so much accessible public art to explore ground side!

Why stay at an airport hotel in Singapore:

Changi Airport is more than just an international hub for Singaporeans. Well before the development of the Jewel, the airport has provided locals with an affordable place to shop and eat, many places which travellers wouldn’t have known exist!

With The Jewel now open, Changi’s transformation from a small shopping destination to major shopping, eating, and entertainment precinct is in full swing.

You can easily get a taste of Singapore without even leaving the airport!

long-haul travel and a comfortable stopover!

One of the things I like about this hotels in Changi Airport is that here are a range of room – or cabin as Yotel refer to them as – options available to suit solo travellers, couples, families, and accessible rooms allowing everyone to enjoy the Yotel experience.
Every cabin comes with a flat screen TV, ensuite bathroom with rainforest shower, a pull-out workstation and complimentary fast WiFi!

Great restaurants are moments away in the Jewel and you can take advantage of Changi’s Early Flight Check-In on the first level. This allows you to check your bags early and obtain your boarding pass. This is great if you want to explore Singapore but don’t want to bring your suitcase with you.

Be sure to take advantage of their shared lounge and balcony space. Pick up a complimentary hot drink and sit back and enjoy the views of the lush rainforest of the Jewel or meet travellers who are also staying at Yotel. This is the place to stay if you want to get from Singapore Airport to hotel in minutes!
