Nestled between the raucous fun of Wild Wild Wet water park and the lush greenery of Pasir Ris Park, Momley Loft is a new confinement sanctuary where mothers can rest and recuperate after giving birth. Confinement or 坐月子 (“zuo yue zi”) — literally translated as “sitting the moon” — is the practice of letting the body recover after childbirth, and it is common for new mums in Singapore to hire a confinement nanny to help them through this month-long process. In recent years however, confinement centres have started up and become rather popular here. Momley Loft is the newest, and the only resort-style confinement centre in Singapore.
An exclusive enclave taking up the entire third level of Aranda Country Club resort — which underwent extensive renovations to update and transform its rooms into spacious suites — Momley Loft offers mothers holistic postpartum care after childbirth. We spent a night here recently, and here’s what we liked about it:
10 things we love about Momley Loft
1. Relaxing, resort style
Wide open air walkways, lush greenery, and birdsong greet you as you step out of the Momley Loft reception area. We stayed in a Premier Suite (they go up to 742 sq ft) whose floor to ceiling balcony doors offered a calming view of sky and trees. However, if you prefer to be surrounded by activity, there are rooms facing Wild Wild Wet, where you can be entertained by revellers at the water park.
2. An exclusive, private space
Occupying the entire third storey of the Aranda Country Club chalet building, Momley Loft is only accessible to guests who have exclusive Momley Loft digital key tags.
3. Spacious, well-equipped suites
Momley Loft has 20 suites spread over two wings. These are spacious, with separate bedroom and living areas. Each suite also has a full-sized refrigerator, a small dining area, breastfeeding armchair and pillow, smart TV, hairdryer, and a Honeywell purifier. Light housekeeping is provided daily (except Sundays).
4. Essentials provided for new mums
Each stay comes with a Confinement Bundle from Madam Partum, a three-piece sculpting corset, a hegen welcome pack, a Rivadouce Bébé set, and access to Aranda Country Club facilities. A set of breastfeeding-friendly Momley Loft robes and pants are also thoughtfully provided for mums to wear during their stay.
5. Convenient location
Downtown East Mall is a five-minute walk away, under sheltered paths. Pasir Ris MRT station is a two-minute drive away, and there are numerous bus services between the station and Aranda Country Club, where Momley Loft is located. There is also a free shuttle service between Pasir Ris MRT station (exit A) and Downtown East. Driving? The car park has a direct entrance to Momley Loft.
6. Nutritious, balanced, confinement meals
Curated by a team of TCM physicians, chefs, and nutritionists, meals at Momley Loft are prepared fresh on-site and served directly to your room. New mums enjoy three main meals, plus two snacks each day. Included with these are herbal soups and red date tea by Madam Partum. What’s more, Momley Loft’s curated menu has been verified by Aptima Nutrition to be nutritionally adequate for lactating and breastfeeding mothers.

7. Stork Room for babies
Your little one can room-in with you, or stay in the Stork Room where they will get 24/7 care from professional nurses. Each baby cot has its own personal camera monitor overhead for real-time video monitoring via a phone app so you can watch over Baby anytime, anywhere. All baby essentials — diapers, wipes, formula — are provided.
8. Constant two-way communication
One thing you’ll never feel at Momley Loft is helplessness. Need something? Just text your Momley Loft concierge through your personal Whatsapp chat. The same goes for the Stork Room, where you can text a nurse if you want them to bring your little one to your room for a nursing session.
9. Mums Lounge
Meet other new mums, hang out with visitors, take a break, or have your meals here. Apart from the lounge, there’s also a studio space for parenting and yoga classes.
10. In-room massages
Every package includes postpartum massages by Madam Partum for the new mum. These massages, done in the comfort of your suite, have a multitude of benefits, including aiding with womb recovery and uterus contraction. The Premium package comes with four massage sessions, while the Deluxe package comes with two sessions. A complimentary three-piece sculpting corset is included as well.
Confinement at Momley Loft: a mum’s review
But don’t just take our word for it. After a successful VBAC for her daughter four months ago, Liza Wu did her confinement at Momley Loft. The mum of two, who is in the fashion industry, stayed at Momley Loft for 14 days. Here’s what she had to say about her experience:
“I chanced upon Momley Loft’s Instagram page and saw positive reviews from a local influencer. The bright and spacious room and the view of the lush greenery from the balcony impressed me, and I felt that it would be the perfect place for me to relax after giving birth.
My husband and my son, who is 33 months old, stayed with me. The bedroom is spacious and can fit a portable crib. However, the king size bed had ample space for the three of us! Furthermore, the meal portions at Momley Loft were so generous, I could share them with my husband and my son! They also served lactation cookies everyday, which helped with my milk production.
Momley Loft is in a very convenient location. It’s just five minutes away from Downtown East Mall where there are many restaurants and convenience stores. There is also a self-laundry, a barber shop, and an indoor playground which my son loved. In fact, it felt like we were on a family staycation!
My baby would mainly be in the Stork Room — where she can get 24-hour care and support — but I could request for her to be wheeled into my room for nursing, or for bonding time.
What I liked most about Momley Loft? The nurses were professional with their tasks but also very genuine, warm, and empathetic to my problems. The dedicated round the clock service also gave me ease of mind so I could rest and recuperate without worrying. I knew that both I and my baby were in good hands.
It would be great if a spa offering massages, herbal hair washes and facials could be added. But whether it is or not, I would definitely return to Momley Loft for my confinement if I have another child!”
