Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa – Amazing exclusive pool + special breakfast for the kiddos!

[Media Invite]

If you’re looking for a spacious family room + swimming pool for your next hotel staycation, you just might want to consider Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa. Recently, the husband, toddler and I had the luxury of checking out Amara Sanctuary, via the Club Tiny Package.

Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa - Larkhill Terrace Swimming Pool

There’s just so many things I loved about the staycation. First of all, the spacious rooms. These family rooms are located in a separate block (Larkhill Terrace) away from the main hotel block. The rooms are huge! There is a separate living room area, the bedroom with a king-sized bed and even a balcony with a day bed to lounge on. It literally felt like the size of a small apartment.

Michelin-starred Chef Roland Durand’s 3-course set menu at Ginett Restaurant & Wine Bar (Hotel G Singapore)

[Media Invite]

Beautiful evening yesterday with the classic combination of good food, good company and good conversation. So lucky to be able to sample the creations of Michelin-starred Chef Roland Durand from France presented via a 3-course set menu. Chef Durand holds awards including winning the Grand Prix Culinaire Internationale Auguste Escoffier and Meuilleur Ouvrier de France competitions.

Actually this special menu is available only for 3 days between 18-20 June, so you really have to hurry if you want to try this out. The 3-course set menu is priced at S$69++ and you can top up $35 for wine pairings. The pictures below show 6 dishes, ie 2 dishes per course. And yes, I ate it all. Yes I ate two dinners yesterday and practically cleaned my plate(s)….

If you can’t make it, you should still consider visiting Ginett Restaurant at some point in time. Some of their dishes are surprisingly affordable, and wines per glass starting from $6??? That’s quite a steal here in Singapore!
