Staycations in Town

Comments

As some of you guys may know, I love my staycations. Skai and I used to go for couple staycations all the time. And ever since I had Aidan, we love staycations even more! We love bringing Aidan for swimming sessions as he really enjoys being in the water.

When I first heard about the Family Fun Escape Staycation package by Swissotel Merchant Court Singapore, I was extremely intrigued.

While some of usual staycations that I go have interesting activities and decor, this really took the cake. The rooms are set up in 'Home style' (in my own words) where it's decorated in a very homely manner according to the respective ages of the kids.

The package comes with the following:

- Two rooms dressed up with kid's amenities such as themed bedding, toys and games
- Swissotel Kids’ Room set-up and age-appropriate amenities upon request
- 2 Adult and 2 Child USS admission tickets
- Complimentary ice cream during your stay for children 12 and below
- Guaranteed late check-out till 4.00pm

As our little family #nadskaidan is basically the three of us, we felt that having two rooms were too much for us especially because we co-sleep with Aidan.

It's been a while since I last traveled. I think the last trip was with BFF to Korea! Skai and I were going a bit mad staying at home honestly. Thankfully we had a Singapore Staycation at Ramada Singapore to look forward to!

Ramada Singapore is a business hotel conveniently located at Balestier, home of good food! Seriously, it's so easy to find food in Balestier. Yummy bak kut teh, chicken rice and hawker face are all located nearby.

As mentioned, Ramada is a business home. Rooms are kept clean, fuss-free. Pretty straightforward without much frills.

Aidan is indifferent but his mama loves the Ramada Panda!

We brought Aidan to the pool but he didn't enjoy it.

So we improvised and used the bathtub instead. Heh.

Overall, it was a comfortable and fuss-free staycation. It's pretty straightforward and simple. I think it was great for us as we were interested in exploring the makan areas around Balestier too.

Thank you Ramada Singapore for hosting us! While this staycation was hosted, no coverage was necessary. 

If you would like to check out the hotel, here are the details. By the way, they have a kickass buffet selection, you should totally check them out!

It's been a while since our last staycation. While most couples go for babymoons, Skai and I didn't have one. Reason being, 1) BFF and I had planned for our Korea trip eons ago, 2) Skai and I just went to Maldives for our anniversary and lastly, when we finally decided on a short trip, 3) I had some bleeding and we decided not to travel.

We decided instead to go for a staycation, staying put in Singapore. Luckily, the kind folks from Shangrila Singapore hooked us up with a fab offer!

They recommended the Time Out Weekend Staycation which consisted of the following:

The kind folks from Marriott Hotel invited Skai and I to experience a weekend Singapore Staycation with them last month.

Marriott Hotel is located in the heart of Orchard Road, right above Orchard Road MRT Station. I have always seen Marriott Hotel and have even eaten at their cafes quite a number of times! But this was our first time staying there!

First up, I gotta state this upfront. Skai aka c(hubby) and I love Staycations. We have had friends keep making fun of us going for staycations. I don't see what's so wrong about going for staycations. Instead of exchanging expensive gifts or extravagant bouquets of flowers for birthdays or Valentine's Day, we instead choose to go for a staycation.

Some prefer to spend on an expensive watch or some jewellery, we prefer staycations. What's wrong with that? Tsk. Jin irritating. It's our money, what is it to them sia?!

ANYWAY, it's pretty much our tradition to go for a staycation to celebrate our birthdays. And as my birthday is a week away from Valentine's Day, we usually celebrate two occasions into one.

For this year, Skai surprised me by booking a staycation at Royal Plaza at the Scotts! I have been to Carousel for dinner before but this was our first time staying at Royal Plaza at the Scotts!

Skai had booked a higher tier, the Royal Club (as opposed to the Superior and Deluxe rooms) as we really enjoy hotels with Club Lounge services but because we checked in late (due to a lovely lunch at Koh Grill), we got upgraded! Also, because my birthday falls during the peak season, most of the time, the hotels are operating at high occupancy. WHAT LUCK IS THIS?! We got upgraded to a suite! **DOES A HAPPY DANCE**
