We would first like to thank all of the wonderful staff (Jerry, OJ, Aishah, Aikee and Gideon) who made our stay last week so enjoyable. We spent 7 nights at The Forest (husband, 6 month old baby and my mom and dad). Parents had a studio which was the perfect size for them. They had a full kitchen, almost exactly the same as the Executive Premier which we stayed in to allow for the porta cot (the Premier also had a washer/dryer and bathtub). Rooms were clean, had all the amenities you could ever want and air conditioning which was so nice to come back to after a full day in the Singapore humidity. Make sure you check out the roof top area - we didn't go up there until the end of our trip. It is beautiful - great views and fab lounge furniture.
Breakfast was perfect. You can have cereal, toast and an assortment of fresh pastries, plus coffee/tea/water all day. But you can also ask for a hot breakfast (eggs pretty much any way), all prepared by the very friendly Gideon. You can eat inside or out and both areas are equally as pleasant.
I must reiterate how amazing the staff are. Every day they would call us a taxi, help us with the pram/bags in and out of the taxi, give us any information we required and were the most delightful bunch. They always greeted us with a smile and constantly played with our daughter. Children are treated like royalty in Singapore. After a hectic day in the city with so many people around (Chinese New Year), The Forest was like an oasis and we were really happy to be able to come back there to the pool (clean, cool, on the ground floor) and the air con. Also there is a small gym with a treadmill, cross trainer and weights.
The residence is located in a lovely neighbourhood, close to Novena Square where there is a Cold Storage good for all groceries and alcohol. You can also purchase wine and beer from The Forest.
As The Forest is a residence you can only stay there for a min of 7 nights but there is plenty to do and see in Singapore so I highly recommend The Forest if you plan on staying more than a week. Keep in mind, this is NOT a hotel. It is a residence/apartments. There is no room service or restaurant other than breakfast. It is for people who want to stay in a serviced apartment but with the amenities of a luxury boutique hotel.
Thanks again for a wonderful experience.
