“An amazing experience, afternoon tea and having a drink and playing cards!”
Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Of all of the places that we visited during our stay in Singapore. I have to say that my wife and I loved the Axis Bar. Nightly we had drinks and played cards with our family. One day we took some time away from the family and had the Champagne afternoon tea at the hotel. We loved it!

When we arrived we were greeted and welcomed back (by name no less) and escorted to a table beside the window.

Our waitress who's name I think was Jendra knew all of the teas (it was a very long list!) almost by heart and she took the time to explain so many choices in detail. After the tea arrived, we had our afternoon tea and it was very well presented. The items were so delicious! We relaxed, enjoyed our champagne and were pampered throughout out adventure. We highly recommend a visit to the hotel as they really know how to make you feel at home!

Almost every night we had drinks with our family at the lounge and the staff were so accommodating and even remembered our drinks! We really loved the service at mandarin Oriental and especially enjoyed the time that we spent at the axis lounge.

“Indulge yourself. Tea Time in Luxury.”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Just like in the Peninsula hotel in Hong Kong, one can relax and enjoy a great cup of tea with cakes and sandwiches at the Axis Bar overlooking Marina Bay in the Madarin Hotel. The view is extraordinary, the atmosphere is so peaceful and service so good that from 3pm to 5 pm you can really chill out and recharge your batteries...Just like all indoor places in Singapore beware of the air-conditioning which can be a bit cold...We just loved this experience and shall do it as often as possible. Price was just S$58 for 2 (+ 7% tax and 10% service Charge) with a great choice of TWG and Mariage Frères teas probably the best in the world. I went for the Earl Grey French Blue tea...

“ASIA-TOUR-2009! Perfect lounging around at the Mandarin Oriental Singapore plus the Liverpool fans!”
Reviewed August 8, 2009

During our stay at the Marina Mandarin Hotel Singapore in July 2009 ( see our ASIA-TOUR-2009! Review of the hotel at our profile here on Tripadvisor ) we had taken the opportunity to visit or better to lounge around at the Axis Bar and Lounge at the Mandarin Oriental which is one of the neighbour hotels of the Marina Mandarin. The Axis Bar and Lounge is located on the 4th level of the staggering Atrium and offers views over the Marina Bay of Singapore and is mostly asian style furnished with a slightly darker lighted atmosphere to created a more intimate space in the hotel. We were met on the way to the lounge by a throng of Liverpool Football Club fans who were waiting for the team to arrive at the Atrium walkway outside the Axis Bar and Lounge which we found rather interessting to see such a devoted thing in the first place! But back to our review and the Lounge, Folks! We had a seating for us two on a very nice comfortable sofa with views to the other people around us and the Marina beyond through floor to ceiling windows. The welcome through the staff in the lounge was professional and efficient plus the menu was offered in a fast way and our lady host wanted also to know both our first names to create a more intimate atmosphere in the lounge. - Interesting to note we had earlier on our ASIA-TOUR-2009! visited the Sheraton Utama in Bandar Seri Begawan, Negara Brunei Darussalam where we had also a lady host who wanted our names in the lounge to create a more intimate or personal environment there! - see our review of the Sheraton Utama here at Tripadvisor - at our profile! - but back to the Axis Bar and Lounge, Folks! We enjoyed a Casablanca tea served in a porcelain pot with sieve and porcelain tea set plus a japanese nut mix, we also enjoyed here one freshly squeezed green apple juice and one freshly squeezed green pear juice, which were all very delicious and freshly made as it stated on the tin! Toilets are located on both sides of the lounge, by the way! All in all we had around 45 min. here in the Axis Bar and Lounge and have taken the opportunity to visit the hotel by walking around and see for ourselves this beautiful hotel which is totally different from style in terms of furnishings and light than our hotel was in sharp contrast. We also recommend that you should visit this lounge in the Mandarin Oriental Singapore and soak up some quietness as well plus there is enough space for many people to have a proper talk here with your better half as well! The other food outlets incl. the Melt World cafe or the Morton' s Steakhouse and the Morton' s Bar are located near the Axis Bar and Lounge on the same 4th level and revolving around the Atrium in a half-circle, just to let you know! After our visit we would also announce our intention to stay here in the future at this superb hotel so that our impression and learnings about hotels in Singapore can positively blossom in the long-term future! So do not forget to FLY!STAY!EXPLORE! MORE! and choose also to visit hotels, where you do not stay to learn more about the hotel' s and your own personality in a pulsating City like Singapore and around the world!
