How to choose a good staycation hotel

Now that staycations are allowed again, and with no knowing of when it will be safe to travel overseas again, hoards of Singaporeans have been booking staycations to somewhat satisfy the travel bug. But with so many hotel staycation deals around, how do you know which is the best hotel deal for you and your family?

I say, the best advice would be not to be too hasty. Sit down and really compare the deals. You will probably find some very good hotel staycation deals out there, no doubt. However, at the end of the day a stay at a luxury hotel will cost several hundred dollars. Ask yourself, what else could you do with the money? Most people say they need to go for a staycation to relax. But with that money, you could have a perfectly relaxing time at a spa with spare change left over. You could treat your entire family to a meal. You could even do some minor redecorating of your room, eg buy some Balinese styled furniture or fixtures to make your room feel like a hotel room, that would have a more long term impact.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic is still ongoing, the following recommendations will give priority to staycations in less crowded hotels.

Ritz Carlton Chihuly Lounge Festive Afternoon Tea

I know Christmas is over but I wanted to share with you all our wonderful Christmas Festive Afternoon Tea at Ritz Carlton Chihuly lounge. This is my second year running having the festive Afternoon Tea here. It can be expensive to eat out for Christmas but yet you feel like you deserve to indulge a little bit given that it’s Christmas. My usual practice come December is to go for a festive afternoon tea. That way, not only can I enjoy the festive atmosphere and decorations, the bill is still somewhat manageable. I’ve always liked the afternoon tea offered by Chihuly Lounge.

SINGAPORE MARRIOTT TANG PLAZA HOTEL–A Christmas to Remember

Christmas 2019 is but just over a month away! It’s the time of the year to think tinsel and make merry again. Tell me if you don’t get excited seeing all the Christmas decorations popping up one by one everywhere. I’ve long told myself not to just focus on the big day itself, but to actually soak up the whole Christmassy atmosphere from November. Because Christmas Eve and Christmas Day whizzes by SO FAST, I feel a little down the day after. I find if I start celebrating from November, there’s a whole lot more time to enjoy the festivities!

Sofitel Singapore City Centre 1864 lobby bar – Elegant afternoon tea with Croiffles!

Media Invite

What is a croiffle did you say? Croiffle or Croffle is a croissant waffle hybrid, and I say whoever created this match made in heaven is a genius. It’s not commonly found in Singapore and indeed, the revamped afternoon tea at Sofitel Singapore City Centre’s 1864 lobby bar was where I tasted this wonderful creation. Think buttery croissant but in the shape of a waffle, so it’s a little bit denser with more bite. And that’s not all, Sofitel 1864’s creation comes topped with Truffle Camembert. The addition of this buttery cheese elevates the croiffle into sheer decadence.

And you can sample this croissant waffle at Sofitel 1864’s revamped afternoon tea. The set comprises the following items:

  • Baked Scone with Rum and Dried Fruits
  • Classic Scone with Clotted Cream and Bonne Maman Marmalade
  • Matcha Azuki Genoise
  • Topinambour and Jivara Chocolate Tart Verrine
  • Mini Croissant Waffle with Truffled Camembert
  • Kueh Pie Tee with Crab Meat and Caviar Creme
  • Baked Frittata with Octopus and Smoked Cayenne Aioli
  • Atlantic Smoked Salmon Sandwich with Fennel Pesto
  • Assorted Praline and Macaron
