[Hotel Review] PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay

Grabbed from official site

Ah, finally.

This stay was postponed twice (from May, then from Aug) due to tightened COVID measures, especially with restrictions on dining-in making a big impact as it would have meant not being able to access the COLLECTION Lounge at all, which was pretty much the point of me booking a COLLECTION room. The final nail in the coffin was the fact that room reservations told me that club offering alternatives will be delivered to the room only once (but I think you can order as much as you like perhaps)

[Hotel Review] Mandarin Orchard Singapore

Grabbed from official site

I had an open slot to fit something in due to some staycay shuffling and I thought it’ll be nice to slot in a farewell stay before it becomes the biggest Hilton in APAC region. I’ve stayed in one of their Suites long time ago so also about time to re-visit!

[Hotel Review] The Duxton Reserve Singapore, Autograph Collection

Grabbed from official site

I’ve been kind of intrigued by this property ever since it first opened as a Six Senses. Even after it became an Autograph Collection, I’ve never actually though about staycay-ing here until this year. Time to try my first Autograph Collection being a Titanium!

(The Milelion’s experience on the property wasn’t very assuring but ah wells, here goes)

[Hotel Review] Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Beach Road

Grabbed from official site

This property was showing very good rates for some reason despite other GHA properties’ fluctuations. With some GHA properties in Singapore slowly being designated as SHN or SDF facilities, I decided to fill in one of my slots with this instead, despite it not being valid for a separate Local Experience accrual as its considered the same brand as Pan Pacific Hotel & Resorts. My second Service Apartment experience!

[Hotel Review] Raffles Hotel Singapore

Grabbed from official site

I’ve finally bit the bullet for this grand old dame!

I had missed out on their Suite Treat and Suite Life packages offered earlier this year as I have always not preferred the colonial style for staycays and honestly this property always seems a little out of reach in terms of price point. But since this year is a year of money-burning staycays, why not.

I’m also going to (try to) be as detailed as I can just because its Raffles. Heh.

[Hotel Review] The Vagabond Club, Singapore (A Tribute Portfolio Hotel)

Grabbed from official site

Ah, Vagabond.

I was only trying to check this off my list in line with my try-all-marriotts-in-SG grand plan for 2021. I had to cancel a previously booked stay under a good rate of $153++ under the MR4 promotion because the property declined to help shift my dates so that didn’t help in my impression of them. But I figured I should try and see what Titanium gets me in a Tribute Portfolio property so here goes!

[Hotel Review] One Farrer Hotel (Mint Premier / Skyline Studio)

That green apple

I admit I was curious about this hotel due to its anti-microbial anti-viral stuff which seems to make it a safe choice these days. Past reviews also seem to indicate that its a decent choice and at under $150nett a night and being a “new” hotel, I figured it cant really go too wrong.

[Hotel Review] Kesa House (The Unlimited Collection by Oakwood)

Grabbed from official site

** Is it time for small space jokes yet?

Kesa has been on my radar since the last few months because it is such a unique property, plus in an area where I’ve been hanging out more frequently for food and hair. Having a nigh here will allow me to explore the neighbourhood without having to rush elsewhere or worry about parking. After shuffling some of my other stays around due to the recently (re)implemented Phase 2 Heightened Alert Phase where no dine-in is allowed, I found a cool rate on Trip.com and figured there’ll be minimal impact to the stay experience since it does not offer any F&B.

[Hotel Review] Oakwood Premier AMTD

Grabbed from official site

This Oakwood has been on my radar since my staycay binge started, but never a priority due to lack of incentives from a good loyalty programme plus average prices which doesn’t shout ‘great deal!’. But a recent Trip.com promo triggered that impulse and my booking was done fast & furious for yet another weekday stay.

[Hotel Review] Mandarin Oriental

Grabbed from official site

My first Mandarin Oriental experience!

Akin to Four Seasons, staying in a Mandarin Oriental has never crossed my mind for some reason. Perhaps the loyalty programme, Fans of M.O, also never had a very strong positioning in my opinion. But 2021 is the year to try everything that hasn’t crossed my mind, isn’t it?
