The kind and lovely Carrie from The Cambelles called me up one day and gave me an awesome piece of good news.
Crowne Plaza Changi Airport wanted to host the c(hubby) and I for a lovely staycation experience. This piece of good news came at exactly the right moment. I was planning for a casual photoshoot with KS from Express-Oh! Photography and was fretting over where to take our pictures. We had wanted to shoot at Downtown East but I heard that the Ferris Wheel was out of service for an indefinite time and thus we decided to skip the place.
I was also excited as the hubby's birthday was approaching and as per our yearly tradition, we always spent every of his birthday in the true Singaporean style. A Singapore Staycation! I pay for at least 90% of my Staycations and I was extremely honoured to be hosted by the lovely Crowne Plaza! The hubby and I go for about 3 staycations a year! His birthday, my birthday and our anniversary! Any excuse to indulge and we will!
I have tried many staycations in Singapore before. We had a girly staycation, birthdays staycations and even just staycations just for fun!
Needless to say, when considering for a staycation in Singapore, here are some of the key points that is really important to me:
- Convenient location
- Good food
- Swimming pool
- Club lounge facilities
What are your criteria when selecting a staycation?
Did Crowne Plaza met my very high expectations? Let's see!
Crowne Plaza Changi Airport is well located at... Changi Airport. Most people may know this... Lao niang stays at Bedok! Bedok to Changi Airport is so near! Ding ding ding! Aside from the close proximity to my place, Crowne Plaza is extremely easy to get to. We took a train from Bedok to Changi Airport! It's located at Terminal 3 and is only 5 minutes away from the MRT station!
I had meals at Azur plenty of times before. Azur with Fidelis and the boys, CNY food tasting at Azur and Azur's New Weekend Brunch Menu. I knew what to expect from Azur and was extremely looking forward to the yummy food!
I MUST MUST MUST have a bathtub. I always make a point to have a long good soak. As you can see from the pictures below, Crowne Plaza Changi Airport has a lovely bathtub. I had forgotten to bring my bathbombs that I made a detour and went to Suntec City (from Changi Airport!) just to buy a bathbomb. Yes. Addicted I am.
Some pictures of the lovely and spacious deluxe room with ensuite bathroom which was equipped with luxurious standing rainshower and separate bathtub before I continue on my other criterias!
How huge is this?! Not only do we have such a spacious room, we only had a couch! There was more than enough space for both my photographer KS and makeup artist when they arrived! (More about that in another entry!)
Peekaboo concept. I can soak while watching television!
A nice swimming pool will guarantee that I go for a dip. I let the pictures do the talking here.
I spy with my little eye... Errrr. I gotta admit. I was happily checking bikini babes from our room. *pervert alert*
HOW AWESOME IS THIS?! POOL ACCESS ROOM BABY!
Lovely swimming pool. So pretty!
Thank you for the lovely fruit platter Crowne Plaza! The hubby and I nommed away while relaxing near the pool!
And my final criteria...
Club lounge facilities
I was first introduced to Club Lounge facilities in another Staycation in Singapore. And after that, I got extremely addicted. I loved the quiet solitude and personalised service at Club Lounges.
Here's what the Crowne Plaza Club facilities entitled us to:
- Exclusive access to the Crowne Plaza Club Lounge from 6.30am till 11.00pm
- Daily breakfast served from 6.30am till 10.30am
- Daily evening drinks and snacks from 5.30pm till 7.30pm with a selection of alcoholic beverages
- All day coffee, tea, juices, mineral water, soft drinks and a selection of cookies available.
- Complimentary 2 pieces of garment dry cleaning or laundry services
- Complimentary use of Club Lounge internet workstation or meeting room for 2 hours daily.
- Complimentary WIFI access in the Crowne Plaza Club Lounge
- Complimentary business services such as photocopying and facsimile (Limited quantity).
How NOT to love Club Lounge facilities?
Enjoying a beer, relaxing with some canapes to a lovely view.
We had the time of our lives at our little staycation at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport!
