If there’s one thing that I really, really want to do often, it is to travel. To travel and see the world out there, whether it’s around the Philippines or elsewhere, either for work or play. I envy those who get paid to travel because it’s such an exciting kind of work. I wish I can travel more often, to see places and experience things-these are what make up my wish list, not so much of material things anymore. I guess I’m in that phase of my life where this is my YOLO statement. Heehee.
Thankfully, I got to travel last March. I went to Singapore to visit P&G Singapore Innovation Center and I stayed at St Regis Hotel. It was such a treat because it’s such a beautiful place to stay.
Situated at the heart of the city’s premier shopping district, with the world-class shopping of Orchard Road and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Singapore Botanic Gardens at your doorstep and the grandeurs of a 5-star hotel within, The St. Regis Singapore is the ideal residence for the discerning luxury traveller.
We were picked up from the airport by a St. Regis chauffeur. Check in was a breeze and we were led immediately to our respective rooms.
Lovely and spacious lobby area of St. Regis Singapore.
I stayed at St. Regis Singapore’s Grand Deluxe Room. A night in this exquisite room costs SGD 940, that’s around P30,000! Umm, I must say, it’s a delight to be able to stay in a room like this because I don’t think I’ll spend this much for a room for myself. 😀
An executive desk, a corner couch and a king size bed welcomed me inside my beautiful room.
As if the room wasn’t overwhelmingly beautiful enough, the bathroom was equally lovely.
My photos don’t do justice. The bath tub that served as my second bed during my three-day stay. LOL!
I slept like a baby during my stay. The bed was beyond comfortable, soft, smooth pillows and sheets cling to me like second skin.
My room has a nice corner view.
And a view of the buildings along Tanglin road.
The elevators at St. Regis have an ottoman that you can sit on, should you need a break from all the shopping & walking around the shops & malls surrounding the hotel.
I also took advantage of the Fitness Club at St. Regis. I, together with my fellow media representatives woke up at 6 AM every day during our three-day stay so we can workout.
The pool was so inviting, I wish I had enough time to do a few laps during my stay.
We did however tried Reméde Spa at The St. Regis.
Step into a world of respite and relaxation at Remède Spa.
Pamper yourself with customised treatments and dwell in the epitome of calm.
We had a relaxing customized massage that lasted for 60-minutes. After which, we indulged & talked about beauty and skin care over a hot cup of tea and a serving of chocolate while we watched those fishes swim in harmony.
We also tried sauna to release all the toxins in our body while opening our pores. We also helped ourselves with shaved ice that falls down from this ice fountain to refresh ourselves.
A foot bath and whirlpool were conveniently located outside the sauna & jacuzzi area.
To fully maximise our Reméde Spa experience, we relaxed further at the jacuzzi.
The women’s locker and bath rooms were prestine and clean. I caught a whiff of an invigorating scent while I was getting ready.
This hair spray reminds me much of Aqua Net! LOL.
Like in any hotel that I’ve stayed at, breakfast buffet is something that I really look forward to. The selection, the service and the overall ambiance are critical for me to fully enjoy my hotel experience.
St. Regis Singapore offers their breakfast buffet at Brasserie Les Saveurs which is conveniently located at the lobby level. Look at what will greet you when you enter the restaurant.
The high ceiling of the restaurant overlooks the swimming pool area.
You can request for a more private setting with their enclosed areas.
The breakfast spread is located right in the middle of the restaurant but there are two other stations on each side of Brasserie Les Saveurs.
Great selection for freshly baked breads and pastries.
They also offer healthy dishes such as salad, yogurt, fresh fruits, cereals and muesli.
Fruit selections and desserts.
Let’s not forget the charcuterie, cheese selections as well as Japanese rolls and Cantonese delights.
Breathtaking chandelier that sits right in the middle of Brasserie Les Saveurs.
Congee, bacon, egss, pastries, pancake & a bowl of yogurt with nuts, seeds and fruits.
While I love the pastry selection and my bowl of congee and yogurt, that’s the only thing I liked. The pancake was sitting in its chafing dish for quite sometime and the bacon was not crispy and as good as it looks. I expected more with their breakfast and their selections. Maybe it’s just me but I really expected more- value for money.
The next morning was no different. While I really enjoyed the pastries, the bacon was way better than the day before. Still, the waffle wasn’t even edible. It was cold and hard, not a crunch or crisp in a bite. The food was the same as the morning before which was a disappointment. I mean, a guest would’ve wanted a different selection somehow right? 🙂
Other than my sheer sadness with St. Regis Singapore’s breakfast buffet, still service was impeccable. I took this selfie before I got ready for our trip to P&G Singapore Innovation Center. I requested for my clothes to be pressed courtesy of the butler.
Request was granted in a jiffy. Not only were my clothes ready, but my request for coffee and water were also immediately taken care of. This was such a delightful service which not all hotels offer complimentary.
Overall, I had a wonderful stay at St. Regis Singapore. It’s near Orchard Road so it’s very accessible should I help myself with some serious shopping. The room was nothing short of elegant and if I had a choice, I would’ve curled in bed and use the bath tub all day. So if you’re looking for a luxurious hotel to stay while you’re in Singapore, St. Regis is worth considering.
