Overnight Connection at Changi

On the following itinerary, DXB-SIN-TPE-SIN-DXB, the only options on the returns all involving an overnight stopover. Does SIA provide accommodation or do I have to make the accommodation myself? Any advice? Thanks.

No accommodation provided. You can try the transit hotel or Crowne Plaza Changi.

Can you provide us with your itinerary at least, and class of travel/ticket type?

The itinerary:

Doha (DOH) to Taipei (TPE)
GF 525 Departs DOH 11:20 26 Oct Arrives BAH 12:05 27 Oct
GF 508 Departs BAH 16:00 26 Oct Arrives DXB 18:10 26 Oct
SQ 495 Departs DXB 20:00 26 Oct Arrives SIN 07:30 27 Oct
SQ 876 Departs SIN 08:35 27 Oct Arrives TPE 13:20 27 Oct

Taipei (TPE) to Doha (DOH)
SQ 879 Departs TPE 17:35 01 Nov Arrives SIN 22:15 01 Nov
SQ 494 Departs SIN 15:10 02 Nov Arrives DXB 18:45 02 Nov
GF 513 Departs DXB 23:25 02 Nov Arrives BAH 23:40 02 Nov
GF 520 Departs BAH 01:50 03 Nov Arrives DOH 02:35 03 Nov

The SQ ticket is H-class Economy.

By the way, does anyone know if bags can be tagged through to/from DOH via Gulf Air? Is 1 hr 50 mins enough for connection at DXB on the outbound? (It is on a separate ticket, Gulf Air DOH-BAH-DXB, the two institutions booked the two portions independently obviously. )

If I arrive in J on MH in the evening and depart in F the next morning on SQ, can I dine in the F lounge for dinner, sleep at the transit hotel and then return to the F lounge for breakfast?

Thanks

Breakfast yes, but no dinner....... Not even in the Business Lounge.

Have two overnight connections at SIN in February, both involve arriving off SQ in F early evening, departing SQ in F early next morning. Assume I can use the F section of the Silver Kris lounge overnight, and if lucky get one of the sleeping rooms. How soon in advance can these rooms be booked or is it first come, first served upon checking in at the lounge reception desk?

I've often overnighted at one of the Transit Hotels in the terminal but that's been when I've not been on a premium fare with SQ so not had access to the SKL.

Assuming I can overnight in the lounge, not sure how they can actually stop me having both dinner and breakfast?

and why would you assume that you can overnight at the lounge, being admitted on the day prior to your departing SQ flight?

Any chance you're arriving on MH from RGN?

Folks over at SQTalk seem to indicate that, when on a connection and with boarding pass already issued, you access the SilverKris lounge at any time. If this is true then dinner, sleep in the lounge (if room available) and breakfast should not be an issue.

I think the massage place at Changi has a policy of letting you sleep there if you get a massage and its not crowded. I'm not sure how for long, but I know I've slept there for a couple of hours and I've heard of longer.

I was in the F lounge/private room last week. I didn't see any sleeping rooms and the lady giving me a tour of the place didn't mention any.
