The birth experience is beautiful and miraculous for many mothers, their babies, and families. However, it is also a profoundly exhausting and even medically traumatising journey.
After giving birth, many mothers need extended rest, recovery, and healing to recuperate from the delivery and begin to adjust to a new life together with their newborns.
This is where confinement centres come in handy because they can create a holistic and full-service experience for both the mother and baby.
Have you heard of Kai Suites? Kai Suites is Singapore’s first luxury confinement centre that’s specifically designed to heal and help a new family in every way possible.
Kevin Kwee, executive director of Laguna National Golf and Country Club, is the co-founder of Kai Suites. He shared that it is common for new mums in Taiwan, South Korea, and China to recuperate in residential confinement centres in an interview.
“After 18 months of market research, and finding many such places more clinical than comfortable, I thought I’d improve on the concept by co-founding Kai Suites. Singapore’s ready for it; I already have local and foreign friends asking to reserve spots,” he added.
The Kai Experience
The centre provides a bespoke embrace to the concept of Japanese hospitality, also known as omotenashi. Kai symbolises restoration and recovery, the two most important factors for a new mother’s health and wellness.
They have a full spectrum of maternity care for families, from prenatal and nutrition advice to postnatal food, and body rejuvenation. The complete guidance is all done in an indulgent environment that rehabilitates every member of the family.
At Kai Suites, every mother and child receives their suite in a hotel-like facility, one that’s both private and inviting while still being centrally located to town.
Have we not mentioned that they are located at 26 Dunearn Road? You will find yourself a less than 10-minute drive to Orchard from the confinement centre.
Not to mention the list of hospitals within a 3km radius:
- 1.8km from Thomson Medical (3-minute drive)
- 2km from Novena Mount Elizabeth Hospital (4-minute drive)
- 2km from Orchard Mount Elizabeth Hospital (6-minute drive)
- 4.1km Mount Alvernia Hospital (7-minute drive)
- 2.8km from Gleneagles Hospital (8-minute drive)

Nourishing foods crafted by chefs & nutritionists
Your daily meals are catered by a state of the art kitchen that uses fresh, local ingredients and traditional cooking. The menu tailors to the individual recovery needs and requirements of the mother.
Using Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) principles of 一休二排三调四健养 (the process of healing, detoxification, restoration and nourishment), you can expect pure, natural, and wholesome foods with no added MSG or artificial additives.
Kai Cuisine is also all about using the best, natural herbs such as black dates, and sulphur-free ‘dang gui’ or angelica root. They even make their sauces, seasonings, and condiments from scratch in controlled batches in-house.
Every top-notch service is designed with Asian cultural values and heritage in mind, treating childbirth as a richly time-honoured tradition that provides rest and critical bonding time between mother and baby.
The standard package at Kai Suites begins at S$12,000.
It comes with an extensive three-month prenatal program that teaches valuable mothering skills and wellness techniques, a seven-day stay after the baby is born, and a three-month postpartum program that helps mothers adjust to life with their new baby.
Guests can alter their stay-in periods and use the Kai Suites’ intensive recuperation program for as long as their budget allows.
Kai Suites is an innovation in luxury maternity management that provides top-tier services that address both mother and baby care components. There’s no better place to do it than at Kai Suites for mothers who are preparing to welcome their new infant.
