My Quincy Hotel Staycation Experience

Last weekend, my BF and I had a staycation at Quincy Hotel, right on Orchard Road, Singapore. Quincy Hotel is ranked first in “The Trendiest Hotel in Asia” and seventh in the “Top 10 Trendiest Hotel in the World” by the 2011 TripAdvisor® Travelers’ Choice® awards.
Quincy is a luxury boutique hotel on Mount Elizabeth road, just off Orchard Road, Singapore. It has 108 chic studio rooms, perfect for the urban traveller who enjoys exclusivity and comfort right in the middle of the city.

The first 2 pics in this post were taken off Quincy Hotel's website.

Here are some of my pics from my couple's weekend away at Quincy Hotel. (If you're thinking of surprising your loved one with a couple's weekend, see end of post for a special deal).

We got the Studio King room ... love the king sized bed and fluffy pillows. As with the rest of the hotel, the deco and set up of the room is very modern.


Big bathroom with seperate shower and bathtub... mirrors everywhere...

Lovely toiletries provided .. you don't really need to bring any. I just brought my make up stuff in my new ettusais pouch.
Everything in the minibar is Free and replenished daily (You'll get to enjoy this perk too!!)
Yummies...

I joined their cupcake workshop in the afternoon. (Apart from baking classes, they have free yoga classes for guests too!)

My BF joined the class with me, it's afterall.. a couple's weekend!!

OK... Holly Jean.. not quite MasterChef standard... I had to get my BF to do the rest of the batter cos my arm ached from whisking. LOL.

hhhmm.. he's very useful in the kitchen.


Our teacher/ chef placing our cupcakes into the oven!!

Time to zip off for a bathroom break... I love this sculpture in the bathroom!!! So pretty!

They also have a nice internet corner for guests...

Or you could always sip tea or coffee while waiting for the cupcakes to bake.. tea and coffee is free all day for guests!

The icing part was so fun!! These are my designs! :)

Dinner menu had quite a choice, from asian to western food... meats, fish.. rissotto... but we both like pepper steak!!

Drinks are free flowing from 6-8pm (yup... you'll enjoy that too!). I had brandy and coke. My BF had a white wine.

And at 9pm, there was movie night by the pool.. complete with popcorn and coke! Nice ambiance.... the pool has a great view of the city. And there are plenty of floaties around so you can watch while you're lounging in the pool.


But we were so exhausted after a long day (I was at iFLY the previous night, and I had to work that morning too!! So need a break!) So we retired early... to find a nice bottle of win waiting for us in our room...
TV time, and some well deserved rest in our big comfy hotel bed!

We woke up pretty late the next morning, and made it down just in time for breakfast... the weather was lovely.
Coffee pick me up for my BF.Fresh juices for me please!

My noms.


Help myself to some more noms!


Then we had to check out because I had a shoot that afternoon :( Back to work for me..... *sad face*


We had a nice time at Quincy Hotel... perhaps it was too short a time. Must arrange my next staycation when I have absolutely nothing to do all weekend!

  1. The staycation seems like so much fun! For all the perks and activities they have, the price is very well justified. The movie by the pool looks interesting - did you manage to experience it?
