Last weekend, we went for a staycation at Mandarin Oriental Hotel. It was marketed as a National Day type staycation because the rooms for this package faced Marina Bay, giving guests a view of the parade on the floating platform as well as the fireworks.
Unfortunately, because of the last minute restrictions imposed (because of the sudden increase of Covid cases), National Day has been postponed, and the rehearsal (and fireworks!) we would have gotten to watch last weekend, was postponed too. :(. We were given the option of postponing our staycation, but decided to just go ahead with it.
Check in was a breeze. We got early check in at 11am. No queues.
Our room was spacious and comfortable for us and our 2 little ones. We all slept on this one king sized bed.
The bathroom has both a tub as well as a shower area.
Amenities provided was pretty basic though, nothing impressive. (Compared to Shangri-la ‘s Valley Wing who provided Mustella toiletries for our kids even!).
They did have a couple of complimentary drinks which tasted really good.
Their pool is lovely too because you get that same city scape view in your horizon as you swim.
You will need to pre book your pool slots (limited to 1 hour a day only. Maybe this restriction will be relaxed once the Covid cases reduce in a few weeks).
But they did do a decent job of bringing the “buffet” to us. Below the table that they wheeled in, was a warmer cabinet with many of the buffet dishes. More then enough food to fill us up.
Myla had a super glorious time lol. (MJ is not a foodie).
That night after the kids slept, Adamson and I got greedy and we ordered satay via Grab food. So convenient. Of course there’s always room service if you prefer, but we were craving satay.
Apart from the pool, the gym and spa are also open. But to keep the kids engaged, we took them for a walk around the Bay instead of staying in room. It’s their first time seeing the Merlion etc. So precious.
And as a special treat, they got to sleep late that night so they could enjoy the splendid night view from the comfort of the room. They hardly get to see the world at night because their bedtime is 6.30pm Hahhaa. So they were super appreciative and it was such a treat.
Thanks bubba for planning this special weekend for our family. Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did :)
