Pan Pacific Singapore – Pacific Club Lounge

If you’re thinking of having a staycation at the Pan Pacific Singapore, I highly recommend that you pay a little more to get access to the Pan Pacific Hotel Pacific Club Lounge. We thought the Pacific Club to be well appointed with an East meets West design that blended very well together. Throughout our entire staycation, apart from some time spent in the pool, the rest of our waking hours were pretty much spent at the Pacific Club!

I often like to summarise my liking for a particular type of decor by saying whether it would be something I would like my house to look like. In this case, the Pacific Club passed the test. I certainly would love my living room to be furnished in this manner, comforting, inviting, yet still classy and elegant.

Of course, having club lounge access means having a few special privileges, such as the opportunity to have breakfast on the 38th floor of the Pan Pacific Singapore, rather than at the usual hotel restaurant (The Edge) with everyone else. Afternoon tea and evening cocktails are also provided, so you never have to worry about going hungry. During the in-between hours, you can still get drinks and fruits.

We checked in at the Pan Pacific Singapore just in time to enjoy the afternoon tea spread from 3pm – 5pm. Of course, don’t be expecting an entire afternoon tea buffet like what you would get in a proper afternoon tea.

Pan Pacific Hotel Singapore Staycation

Pan Pacific Hotel Singapore (7)

Stayed at the Pan Pacific Singapore 2 weeks ago. It was an absolutely relaxing and recharging experience. Before we booked the room, I mulled briefly over whether it would be worth the money just for a 1 day affair. However, there were no doubts that this was the right decision once we had checked into the hotel.

Staycations (ie “holidaying” without leaving Singapore) are a common thing in Singapore now, but perhaps not so common is a staycation coupled with club room access. Having club room access means that you can access the exclusive club lounge, and this is great for those who don’t plan to leave the hotel at all. There’s only so much sleeping and tv watching you can do in the hotel room, and you can’t swim all day either. Club lounge access allows you to have your breakfast in the exclusive club lounge rather than rough it out with the rest of the guests in the Hotel restaurant. Also, afternoon tea and evening cocktails are provided, which means that you don’t even have to worry about your meals!

The Pacific Club

We spent a good part of our staycation holed up at the Pacific Club sipping tea and eating nibbles while reading newspapers or just enjoying the view. More about the Pacific Club in my next post, but first up, pictures of our Pacific Harbour King room.

Random food photos from Raffles Hotel

Was at the 2nd Rendezvous with French Cinema event earlier this month at Raffles Hotel. Highlight of the day was to meet the famous French actress Sophie Marceau. Some might remember her in one of the Bond movies, The World is not Enough. I don’t watch all that many movies but I did happen to catch that one and I enjoyed it a lot.

I really admire Sophie Marceau and people like her. She has kids yet she still manages to juggle a backbreaking jet setting career. The idea of having to fly all over the world and live out of a suitcase may seem daunting, but wouldn’t that really be living life to the fullest? Sometimes I wish I were doubly busy with back to back appointments. Then I can say to myself that I’ve made use of every minute that I have. Of course it would be a fine line between just packing your days with inane stuff, versus going slowly but doing more meaningful work.

Anyway, since the highlight of the event wasn’t so much about food, I didn’t take many photos of the canapés served. Couldn’t resist taking a picture of the Champagne and pretty chocolate pastry though. The Champagne was the 1st thing I had that day! Smile

Ain’t these just so pretty???? BTW, the cakes at Ah Teng Bakery in Raffles Hotel are surprisingly affordable at about $6 a slice. Considering it’s Raffles Hotel, that pricing is quite palatable!

Grand Copthorne Waterfront Solemnization by the River

Grand Copthorne Waterfront

I am in a wedding mood so I thought I’d share some pictures of nice solemnization areas. Here’s a picture of the solemnization area for Grand Copthorne Waterfront. Love how they have done up the pillars in brown sashes. It would be a nice place to say I DO. The only issue with all these outdoor places is what happens if it rains? But at least in this case the couple won’t get wet. Love the jets of water coming down from the roof.

Robertson Quay (2) If you’re not getting married, it’s quite nice to stroll along this part of the river too.

People living in these condos must have a really pleasant environment to live in.

Facebook fans that manage to show evidence of finding these 3 icons, and who correctly answer the given question – “What is the name of the tapas bar and grill at Bay Hotel Singapore?” – will stand a chance to win the prize.

Each lucky winner will win a one night stay in Bay Hotel’s Singapore Deluxe Queen Room for 2 persons, including breakfast. There will be two lucky winners. The Valentine’s Day treasure hunt will end on 19th February 2012 (11pm, GMT +8), with the winners announced in late February 2012.
