Sofitel City Centre Singapore @ Wallich Street

Opened in October, Sofitel City Centre is easily my current favourite hotel in Singapore! After experiencing both Sofitel SO and Sofitel Sentosa, I would say that Sofitel City Centre is the epitome of French luxury. From its interior design, to location and service,  I would give it 10 out of 10. While the check-in counter…

Baba Chews Bar & Eatery @ Hotel Indigo Katong

The month marks the opening of the latest boutique hotel in Singapore – Hotel Indigo Katong, by InterContinental Hotels Group, and Baba Chews is a restaurant that serves as a breakfast location for hotel guests in the morning and transforms into a restaurant and bar in the afternoon and evening. A 5-min walk from my house, I’m…

Adrift by David Myers @ Marina Bay Sands

Helmed by Celebrity Chef David Meyers, Adrift’s interior was spectacular – divided by rooms, each room is filled with a visual feast. From having swings as your dining chair, overlooking the pond, to a mini library (pictured above), you are being transported out of Singapore for a moment. I was here for a beautiful weekend…

Staycation: Hotel Jen @ Tanglin

There’s something different about #thejenfeeling. It is hipster, forward yet homely at the same time. Every turn and corner contains a surprise. Because photos will speak for themselves, here they are. Lobby lounge and a cafe at the back. Instagram-worthy stationary swings! #Bedroomgoals Cosy corner of the room with quotes of the day! Even a…

Hotel Review: The South Beach Hotel @ Beach Road

First post of 2016 is dedicated to a hotel of where I spent the first minutes of 2016 at – the new The South Beach hotel. Designed by renowned French designer Philippe Starck, the latest luxury hotel in Singapore boasts a capacity of 654 rooms and suites. The South Beach is a project that consists of…

Hotel Review: Village Hotel Katong @ Marine Parade

A home away from home, quite literally, as my house is a few minutes’ walk to Village Hotel Katong! What used to be Paramount Hotel and a very popular Tunglok branch in the basement, the building is now converted into a boutique hotel by Far East Hospitality that retains the Peranakan roots of this district…

Buffet: Colony @ The Ritz-Carlton Singapore

One of the best new openings for 2015 is definitely Colony, Ritz-Carlton’s new buffet restaurant which replaced Greenhouse. The entire concept is so refreshing following its renovation – a huge step away from the original buffet powerhouse, bringing its game a notch up.  The theme surrounding the restaurant depicts the sea voyage of the British…

Cherry Garden Chinese Restaurant @ Mandarin Oriental Hotel

Cherry Garden has always been one of those places that is synonymous to Chinese fine-dining. This is my second post on Cherry Garden and I’ll be sharing with you their Weekend Dimsum Buffet! Available on Saturdays and Sundays, with 2 seatings available, the first at 11.30am and second at 2.30pm, it is priced at $64.90++ per head. It…

The Waterfall @ Shangri-La Hotel

Not too long ago, Shangri-La Hotel introduced a new restaurant, The Waterfall, specialising in Southern Italian cuisine. Yes, one more restaurant to find lip-smacking good pastas! On weekends, The Waterfall offers Italian brunches at $48 per head. Not too bad for free-flow pastas, pizzas and caprese I think! However, as I wasn’t in the mood for buffet, I opted…

Staycation: Llyod’s Inn, Singapore

I knew of Llyod’s Inn way before its opening, thanks to my BFF who showed me photos of this picturesque property and another colleague of mine stayed there during its pre-launch. Of course, a staycation here was called for after all this buzz! Tucked within the residential area of Somerset, it’s a short stroll up a slope…

Shang Palace Chinese Restaurant @ Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore

When it comes to dimsum, I must say that we’re spoilt for choice! Having tried many Chinese restaurants in hotels, I must say that each has their own specialties and worth a second, third and etc. visits. During my birthday last year (oops, overdue again), my family headed to Shang Palace for lunch. Surprisingly, the…

Hotel Review: Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok

Well, the Shangri-La brand needs no further introduction. Thus, this is just a quick photo view of the hotel’s vicinity and of course, breakfast buffet. My entire stay here at Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok was nothing short of perfection. It’s very near the Silom MTR station and you can take the sheltered link through Shangri-La Residences, which…

Breeze Restaurant @ Lebua Hotel, Bangkok

Lebua is an impressive Five-Star hotel with various dining options at the top of the building. Asian cuisine at Breeze was the choice for dinner. We were seated at the lounge area before being invited to take the ‘purple walkway to heaven’. A stunning view that greeted us from the purple walkway. It was definitely a…

Anti:Dote High Tea @ Fairmont Hotel

I was killing time on a Sunday afternoon with a friend when we walked into Anti:Dote – a place known to have your after-work drinks at. Surprisingly, the restaurant started to get crowded by 3pm. Later, I saw boxes of pretty snacks being prepared and served to other tables. I knew I had to return. Anti:Dote’s exquisite…

Buffet: Sala Rim Naam @ Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Bangkok

A boat ride? Yep, you’re treated to a short boat ride before your royal meal commences! As the Sala Rim Naam is situated across the river from the main hotel vicinity, don’t be surprised when the staff start directing you towards the port! The only Thai restaurant in Mandarin Oriental serves a royal spread of Thai…

il Cielo @ Hilton Hotel, Singapore

I haven’t gone back to Hilton Hotel for the longest time ever, constantly gearing towards new hotspots and neglecting the old. That is, until il Cielo caught my attention with its beautiful pool view from Level 24 of Hilton Hotel. Though the decor is rather dated, the ambience was cosy and romantic. A perfect setting…

Clifford Pier @ Fullerton Bay Hotel

Welcome to my English summer house! Sigh, who am I kidding. After an overhaul of the lobby and restaurant area, Fullerton Bay Hotel has definitely hit home with me. Beautiful is an understatement of this tall, arc ceiling accompanied by grand chandeliers that remind me of old train stations. Its floor, so well-polished that the resulting reflection…

Staycation: Hotel Clover @ North Bridge Road

Hotel Clover is a small boutique hotel hidden amidst the long row of shophouses with most involved in the Indian Muslim food business. All the noise and chaos seemed to be muted out when I stepped into this empty lobby. As though going back in time, the neutral tones of furnitures spelt vintage. I have…

Buffet: Seasonal Taste @ The Westin Hotel

After my staycation at Westin and trying every restaurant possible in this hotel (Dinner at Cook & Brew and High-Tea at Lobby Lounge), I was left with its buffet dinner to conquer. I loved how the restaurant overlooks the Marina Bay port from the 32nd floor. Tables by the window have the best view –…

High Tea: Rose Veranda @ Shangri-La Hotel

The posh waiting area of Rose Veranda is just a lead-up to what you will be in for when you dine here. The space has been revamped a number of times, but remained as popular as ever. I did not manage to get a photo of the main dining area, but just imagine a double-storey…
