Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel Staycation

Everyone loves a staycation, but did you know that babies love staycations too? It was our 1st staycation with baby in tow back when he was still less than a year old, and we really had no idea what to expect, which kinda resulted in us bringing 3 suitcases to the hotel for just a night’s stay. I think the most “hilarious” item was the bulky baby float, which the doorman dutifully took in his stride without raising an eyebrow.

After taking the requisite photos of our hotel room, we placed Baby on the king-sized bed for a wefie. He loved the bed so much, he was zooming all over it, climbing up and down and making all sorts of excited baby noises. It must have been the spaciousness of the bed (ours is cluttered with numerous pillows and bolsters) or just the novelty of it, but it was a joy to see Baby enjoying himself!

Great view of Roberson Quay, the Singapore River and the CBD in the distance

I really love staying at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel. For one, the rooms seem to be bigger, which I suppose is because it’s not located in the CBD/Orchard/Marina Bay area. The views are great, if you are able to snag a river facing room. You can see all the way up to Marina Bay Sands and its iconic SkyPark, which is always a visual treat, just like you would look out for the Eiffel Tower when in Paris? Lastly, the hotel is right smack in the Robertson Quay area, which is full of restaurants and cafes, but minus the crowdedness and hustle that you might find at Boat Quay and Clarke Quay. Robertson Quay is more laid back and less touristy, so its especially suitable for a day of chilling out, which is exactly what you want when you are on a staycation. The downside is there are no shopping centres and no MRT station nearby, but you wouldn’t miss those if you’re just on a short staycation and your main purpose is to relax, which in our case this time round, it was.

Grand Copthorne Afternoon Tea–Most value for money afternoon tea!

Let’s face it, having afternoon tea in Singapore in a nice comfortable setting such as a hotel doesn’t come cheap. A few dainty morsels perched on a three-tier tray plus a few cups of tea would normally set you back by about $30 – $40 per pax. So I was quite shocked to discover that Grand Copthorne’s afternoon tea costs only $38++ in total for TWO pax, with free flow coffee/tea!

Look at this afternoon tea set, comprising fried chicken wings, dumplings, tuna croissants, salmon sandwiches, chicken pies, cakes, macarons, éclairs and nyonya kueh, it’s quite substantial for afternoon tea right??? I did a quick poll of some of my friends and they guessed that this would cost $40 per pax! Granted the nibbles may not be the most expensive of items (ie not foie gras etc), but still, I really do think this is a good deal.

Free flow Foie Gras and Wagyu beef at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel’s Borderless Sunday Brunch Buffet!

[Media Invite]

These days with so many F&B restaurants sprouting up just about every other day, it’s not enough to simply serve decent food. Each F&B needs to boast its own unique selling point to entice customers to give it a try, and to keep them coming back. This is probably even more pertinent for buffets, where it costs a pretty penny to enjoy one, so people tend to be even more discerning.

Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel Borderless Sunday Brunch (15)

I think Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel’s Borderless Sunday Brunch might have just hit on a winning formula via these 4 areas. Btw they call it borderless because you get to experience 3 different F&B outlets in 1 buffet, ie

  • Food Capital buffet restaurant – a buffet only restaurant on other days
  • Grissini Italian Grill Restaurant – specialising in antipasti and hearty Italian favourites, not forgetting the Josper Grill meats
  • Tempo Bar – signature cocktails

1. Free flow Foie Gras and Wagyu Beef

Yes I kid you not. The rest of the buffet offerings is not as extensive as the name suggests, but then again, do you need an extensive buffet spread if you already have foie gras and wagyu beef in unlimited quantities????

2. Grilled meats from Josper Oven

Speaking of the Josper Oven, that itself is another reason to check out Grand Copthorne’s buffet. The Josper Grill to chefs is like a Ferrari to car lovers. The Josper oven combines an oven and grill in one and is fired by charcoal and flavoured wood to bring out the aroma and texture of the ingredients.

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.

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