As part of Starwood promotion, I've gotten 2 free nights stay at any SPG establishments. And since I'm always travelling, I've thought of getting a staycation in Singapore, and also use this opportunity to invite some close friends for a birthday get together.
Booked St. Regis for 2 separate weekends. Arrived at 3 p.m. at the hotel, grand entrance and nicely staff. The check-in staff was very friendly, gone thru some of the hotel facilities, breakfast timings. She also noted that I had 2 booking on 2 separate weekends, and asked if I was celebrating any special occasions since most locals book hotel mainly for special occasions.
Told her that this weekend is for a simple relaxing staycation, and the next stay was for my birthday celebration. She noted this into the hotel system, and was greeted "Happy Birthday" on my next stay.
I was given an option to upgrade to a room with better view, but I needed to wait for about 15 mins as it not ready. I opt for the better view, and the front desk ushered us to the cafe and offer us a drink on the house while we wait for the room to be ready.
Soon, the room was ready, and we are all set to check-in. The room was huge and luxuriously furnish. The bathroom was very big, and toiletries are good quality, products from the spa in-house. Beds were comfortable and pillow menu was available.
Every evening, there's free wine tasting and cheese at the decanter. My friend and I joined the wine tasting, and enjoyed ourselves chatting away. As the hotel doesn't have any lounge, we were offered to go to the pool-side restaurant for an free evening cocktail too. Had a couple of whiskey and finger food.
St. Regis is located at the corner of orchard road, (tanglin road to be exact), so the dining options were aplenty. Decided to walk down the street and look for steakhouse as we were both craving for it.
As we were back to the room, we decided to watch a DVD before retiring for the night. Both my friend and I tried to operate the DVD but just couldn't get it to work. So we called the butler services, and soon enough, they sent a well-dress butler to the room to orientate us to use the system. Silly us, the cover was covering the button, which we were missed out.
The butler also offered to bring us some coffee and tea while we watch DVD at the comfort of the room. And it's a free flow of coffee and tea from the butler service.
Breakfast was the highlight of all staycation, and thus my friend and I woke up early to enjoy a sumptuous start. The selection of buffet breakfast was great, good selection of dimsums and amongst others. Fruits platter was fantastic, there were almost about 10 different types of tropical fruits, and we were really spoilt for choice.
Reading the morning papers, and enjoying a sumptuous breakfast is indeed a good way to start the day.
There are 2 places for breakfast, one at the lobby, and the other one at restaurant by pool side. Was ushered to the 2nd restaurant, as we were late on the 2nd stay, and only the restaurant by the pool side was available.
The selection at the 2nd restaurant was smaller, and just very basic breakfast and a good selection of fruits. Something worth noting was that, I had 2 other friends who joined me at St Regis over the birthday weekend. The hotel was nice to offered an additional free complimentary breakfast, despite that the breakfast was for 2.
The pool was very small, almost just for you to dip your legs. Didn't really wanted to spend time there, as the bed just kept pulling you to it.
Overall wonderful experience, for both weekends. I'm very picky when it comes to hotel, but I can't specifically pin-point anything that wasn't up to standard.
