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…

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…

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…

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…

Staycation: Marina Bay Sands Hotel Singapore

I suppose no one needs an introduction to the MBS Hotel since it’s one of the most iconic and prominent infrastructures in Singapore – also being the second Integrated Resort here. I’ve stayed at MBS a couple of times and I have to say that the crowd is just really bad, every single time. My check-in…

Staycation: The Fullerton Hotel, Singapore

This famous colonial structure was once home to the nation’s General Post Office, The Exchange, Chamber of Commerce and The Singapore Club. Converted into a luxury hotel that is uniquely Singapore, The Fullerton Hotel continues to draw crowds, both overseas and local, with its blend of the old and new. I was here over Christmas last…

Staycation: Westin Hotel, Singapore

The Westin has reopened in Singapore last November after more than a decade and I was here just 5 days after their official opening (yes, this is just one of my many backdated posts). I was really glad that there were no teething problems and my stay was more than enjoyable, looking at how new…

Staycation: Carlton City Hotel, Singapore

A second property of the Carlton Brand in Singapore, Carlton City Hotel is a brand new business hotel situated along the fringes of Chinatown, within the historical district of Tanjong Pagar. To me, its location is extremely convenient, with the MRT Station 5-10 minutes away by foot and there are countless food options nearby. Adjacent…
