Who says Dating in Singapore is boring?!

This is a Sundate - #nadskai at it's best entry. For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.

The problem with being on the mailing list of many hotels is that you'll get very very very tempted over Singapore Staycations Promotions.

For instance, I received an EDM about Rendezvous Hotel and saw this amazing Singapore Staycation deal!

New-Rendezvous-Club

Rendezvous Weekend Getaway from S$298

  • 1-night stay in refurbished Club Room
  • 1-hr Thai Aroma Oil Body Massage
  • Cathay Movie Tickets
  • Exclusive access to Club Rendezvous lounge
  • Breakfast @ Club Rendezvous lounge
  • Daily comfort food @ Club Rendezvous lounge
  • Evening cocktail & canapés @ Club Rendezvous lounge
  • Complimentary refreshments throughout the day
  • Early check-in at 10am OR late check-out at 4pm
  • High-speed internet access

How not to succumb like that?! Staycation AND 1 hour body massage! Skai and I indulge in massages often and we thought this was a great promo! I immediately sent this promotion to a few of my Staycation loving friends and booked a hotel stay almost immediately!

On the day itself, we wanted to check in at the lobby but was ushered to the Club Rendezvous Lounge to check in instead.

And greedy us found out that there were light bites served so.... we ordered everything for lunch.

I can't emphasise this enough but.. I LOVE CLUB LOUNGES! Free flow of drinks, evening cocktails AND food!!!!

The hotel was operating on full capacity that day and we were lucky enough to be upgraded! Mwheeheheheee!

Love the full length mirror. Perfect for camwhoring. Here's my #nadootd (aka nadnut's Outfit of the day)

We had booked our massage at 7pm and we were surprised to find out that the massage was at Ayuthaya Royal Thai Spa at Rendezvous Gallery.

We enjoyed an hour massage of Thai oil massage. After the whole massage, we found out that it was worth $148 per person!!! Super great deal!

We managed to reach the lounge for a quick drink (Soda for me, wine for him) and some canapés.

We received movie vouchers too but decided to utilise on another day as we wanted to nua. Honestly, the bed was extremely comfy! I would like that mattress for my new place!

The next day, we had breakfast at the Club Lounge too.

Nuaed till 4pm (we had opted for the late checkout) and headed back!

Goodbye from #nadskai!

Did we think that it was worth it? Definitely! The massages itself was way more expensive than the whole price we paid for the hotel! I really love such promotions!

I think that we go for so many Singapore Staycations that friends have been asking us how much we've been spending on them! I guess Staycations are really a quick and easy alternative to take a break within Singapore plus we do not have our own place yet (getting our BTO next year!), it is a great way to have some couple time together!

It's a tradition for us to celebrate our birthdays and anniversaries with Staycations in Singapore or Holidays. Since the first year we got together, we've been doing so! We're thinking of where to celebrate my birthday next year! I don't think a trip overseas will be possible due to our leave blocked up for Maldives next year.. so looks like it'll be a Birthday Staycation again! Any recommendations where?

Skai aka c(hubby) and I had actually wanted to travel for his birthday weekend but that weekend was my ex-colleague Christine's church wedding! Needless to say, we decided to change our plans! Plus Chris had chope-ed me for a while back! Am glad that we attended her wedding, it was a beautiful and touching ceremony! <3

Instead, we decided to have a SIngapore Staycation at Village Hotel Albert Court! We really enjoyed my birthday celebration at Village Hotel Katong and when we saw a promo on a Colourful Weekend, I was hooked la. Colourful leh. Colours and Nadia = DONE DEAL.

I think nowadays, we got for Staycations to get ideas for our house next time. HAHAHAHA LOVE this bed! Wallpaper also chio but perhaps in a different colour for #nadskaihome?

Love the "water colour" stained tiles. Pity we can't change much for our new place as flooring, tiling are all included.

Untitled

Comfortable and spacious room.

We booked a deluxe room. The Colourful Weekend promo came with a Fabric Painting session. C(hubby) and I have been searching for fun activities to do during our #Sundates. And we loved the idea of a mini workshop during our staycations!

Untitled

We had a closed fabric painting session with an instructor. C(hubby) and I decided to do a piece together.

Untitled

We chose this piece! The instructor had already drew some outlines and all we had to do was colour it!

Our view!

Isn't it a decent effort?

We really had fun! It's different painting with Acrylic as compared to Poster Colours! Can't wait to try other fun arty farty stuff with c(hubby)!

During our staycation, we nua-ed as woke up quite early for Christine's wedding so we felt super sleepy! That's the best thing about c(hubby), he doesn't mind nuaing. HAHAHHAA.

The next day, we woke up bright and early for the buffet breakfast. (breakfast is his thing, I usually prefer to sleep in)

The c(hubby) and I have a tradition. We always celebrate our birthdays with Singapore Staycations. Even though we've been married for like 2 years now, we still continue the tradition.

This time for my birthday, the hubby planned the staycation at Village Katong Hotel! But before that, I got a very cute carebears bouquet!

We got a bit lost going to the hotel but it was all good in the end!

The foyer was spacious and it was a comfy place to hang out at. Our friend KM popped by and we entertained him there.

Rainshower! His favourite!

The bed was extremely comfy however I found it weird that the bathtub is located outside? Is this normal? Maybe iSuaku. The decor was gorgeous! I would love such a decor for my future place!

Untitled

I love that the fridge came well stocked with drinks! Thumbs up!

Untitled

Once again, another look at the decor! One of the most beautiful staycations ever!

We are a fan of club lounge facilities and I was thrilled to find out that he had specifically booked a room with these facilities! They had juices, chips, cookies, soft drinks and coffee. Quite well stocked!

Untitled

We went back to the Club Lounge for drinks. My birthday was less than a month before the wedding, so it was really a nice time for us to take some time off and relax as a couple.

Untitled

Side note: I love my agnes b bangle from Jem! Thanks dear!

Time for a good soak! he had brought rose petal LOL! Super romantic!

Overall, we had such a great time at Village Katong Hotel. Seriously! This isn't a sponsored review! He paid for the whole staycation and I really enjoyed myself thoroughly 🙂 Couldn't bear to check out! For reference, our room was the Premier Peranakan Club Room. Currently they have a promotion which I find extremely value for money! Thinking of booking for our anniversary!

Village Hotel Katong Weekend Savers for couples: For $175++ for a Superior weekend room, enjoy breakfast for 2, complimentary WIFI and choose one of the three activities for free! What a great deal for a Singapore Staycation!

There is also an hourly shuttle transfer from the hotel to Big Splash (and back) hourly from 9.20am to 10.20pm so that means... You can also visit Updog Studio for yoga!

The c(hubby)'s friends organised a staycation in Marina Bay Sands last Christmas Eve. It was a casual and simple affair where they had booked a suite, bought a copious amount of alcohol and dapaoed food to the room!
