A Comparison of the 9 Best Confinement Centres in Singapore (2024)

Staying in a confinement centre is a traditional practice found in many East Asian countries. These centres offer a dedicated environment that provide a supportive and controlled setting where mothers can benefit from expert caregivers, nutritious meals, and a range of services aimed at promoting their physical and emotional well-being. Confinement centres are considered relatively new to Singapore, only increasing in popularity in the past 1-2 years.


Life update: Hi everyone! I’m Cheryl, the founder of Hatchery Cribs, and I’m currently pregnant with my first child. I’m planning to stay in a confinement centre after I deliver in February 2024, I visited 4 of the 9 confinement centres in November 2023 - Momley Loft, Kai Suites, SingJoy, and My Queen - and spoke to the centre managers to understand more about their space, and to find a centre that meets my needs. All opinions stated are my own, and all rates and information are correct as per the day of publication. Hope this information will be useful for all you new parents too!

1) Momley Loft: Spacious Suites with Tranquil Greenery

Cheryl’s take: The suites at Momley Loft are the most spacious I have seen. Even their ‘smallest’ suite is spacious and are perfect for long term confinement stays. As it is situated in between Pasir Ris Park and Downtown East, there is a natural calm and tranquility from the greenery, and yet is near popular amenities and F&B outlets.


The place is perfect if your top priority is the spaciousness of the suites (without being at an exorbitant price), and also having a full suite of care and support for your confinement needs available 24/7.

3) KAI Suites: Luxurious 5* Hotel and Service

The KAI Suites lounge and restaurant area where meals are served, and where mothers can meet their guests.

Cheryl’s take: Upon arrival at KAI, I felt that I had arrived at a luxury hotel. The interior and furnishings were all immaculate and tastefully selected. The service from the concierge team to the care team was friendly and warm. I also had the privilege of tasting a confinement meal which felt nourishing and tasty, and conscientiously prepared and plated. Overall, the place is premium and very comfortable, but the rooms are on the smaller side, especially for the price point.

4) SingJoy Confinement Centre: 1-1 Confinement Care at a Luxury Service Apartment

Cheryl’s take: If you do not like the idea of having different caregivers for your newborn, SingJoy will be a more suitable confinement centre for you. They do not work on a central nursery model, and instead, have 1 dedicated nanny for each mother and baby. Also, as there is no central nursery, the baby will be in your unit together with you all the time.


Compared to having a live-in confinement nanny in your own house, this has its perks as the confinement meals and housekeeping will be done by specialized teams. The SingJoy team also works closely with nannies to ensure only the best level of care provided.
