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!

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.

Bay Hotel Singapore is organizing an online treasure hunt competition, paired with questions about the hotel, exclusively for fans of Bay Hotel Singapore’s Facebook fanpage in Singapore.

The online treasure hunt is inspired by the cupid and love of Valentine’s Day, where participants will have to locate 3 icons amidst images of the hotel. 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.

Marina Bay Sands Hotel

As promised, here are some photos of the room we had at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The room size is Atrium Deluxe, with a city view. In my opinion, in the day time, the sea view looks better. Luckily for us, there was no haze and the blue expanse of water was just amazing. It’s too glaring to be looking at the office buildings in Shenton Way during the day time. However, come night time, the roles are reversed. Shenton Way is lit up and makes for really good photos. If you take the city view, you get to enjoy the water show right in your own room at 8pm. But if you take the sea view, you might just be able to catch the sunrise. Take your pick. Whatever the choice, you still can enjoy 360 degree views up at the SkyPark. And don’t forget to ask for early check-in and late check-out to maximise your stay!

Rooms: As you can see from the pictures above, the rooms are pretty luxurious! The place looked clean and the decor was modern and soothing. Everything just looks bright and inviting! The bed faces the TV, while the sofa faces the business table. The room size we got was also larger than what I would expect of a normal room in any hotel in Singapore. I found out later that the higher you go, the small the room sizes become. The rooms at the really low floors even have a sort of dining area and perhaps even balconies! Of course the lower floors are nearer to the roads and expressway. It’s a damn good marketing/strategic decision to design the rooms this way I think, then you don’t have to bother with numerous price ranges. Like my colleague with his 9 other friends, they chose the lower floor so that all 10 of them could fit in the room, even though they were originally assigned one of the highest floors. Btw, there wasn’t a bathtub in the room that I got!

Service: Don’t expect stellar service. The staff that we encountered were all pretty aloof. They weren’t rude, but they made no effort to be particularly friendly. They just did their job. You were just another guest, another statistic to them, to be processed. And indeed, the hotel is so big, it just doesn’t exude the homely feeling. The lobby area spans the entire 3 towers. Everyone is just rushing one way or the other. As you can well imagine, there are lots of visitors  who just want to gawk at the place, who aren’t actually staying at the hotel itself.

When I think of the really personal treatment I received at Conrad Singapore, the difference is tremendous. At Conrad Singapore, every staff tries to go out of their way to make your stay wonderful, and they look genuine about. Till today, whenever we happen to be at the Conrad Lobby, this guy Roy still remembers us, greets us and offers to help us, even though we are just passing through. Marina Bay Sands Hotel has the "wow" factor, and I would definitely encourage you to stay there at least once. The stay is definitely enjoyable. However, I can imagine if I were a business visitor from a foreign country having to visit Singapore often, I would rather stay at Conrad than at Marina Bay Sands cuz after a while, the novelty will disappear and what you yearn for would be familiarity and a family feeling.
