I had the opportunity to experience a stay at Oasia Residences a few months ago. This entry came pretty late as most of you guys may realise, I have cut down on blogging these days. Mom life hitting me hard. Working AND mom life hitting me hard. ūüėģ

Before I start this review, I would like to state upfront that I'm not obligated to write this review. This is of my own personal opinions.

Also that Oasia Residence is intended business and leisure travellers planning for longer stays in Singapore. Typically for at least a 7 nights stay.

Oasia Residence is a serviced apartment located in the western side of Singapore, specifically the West Coast area. The residence offers 140 studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments, well-ventilated spaces, coastal views and a suite of wellness offerings to help guests journey well during their stay.

Oasia Residence has 140 studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments. Apartments are fully furnished and equipped with all the essential comforts and convenience of a modern home such as a living area, kitchenette and Wi-Fi connectivity. They also have ppen-air spaces in the residence surrounded by scenic views and coastal breezes provide a calming retreat to Refresh the mind and senses. Across the residence at West Coast Park, the sprawling greenery offers guests the opportunity to enjoy peaceful outdoor strolls and be close to the sea.

They also have a suite of wellness offerings and recreational enclaves at their doorstep including a fitness centre, a tennis court and a swimming pool set in a tranquil environment. Guests can start the day with daily light continental breakfast (available on Monday-Friday, except Public Holidays). For weekends, fret not. The residence is located close to a host of dining, retail and lifestyle establishments for guests to choose from.

We checked into a one bedroom apartment and was pleasantly surprised that the staff noticed that we had a baby and had promptly provided a baby bed and baby chair. Super attentive!

The room was comfortably furnished with a bed, kitchenette, washer and a living room area and was spacious. I liked that the living room area was separated from the main bedroom. Skai could work on his laptop with the lights on in the living room while I could have the room dim to pat Aidan to sleep.

We checked in on a weekend and we decided to make full use of the facilities. We first went to the nearby supermarket and shopped for ingredients to prepare for dinner and also prepare Aidan's meals.

We also made full use of the facilities. Skai went for a jog in their fitness centre and we also brought Aidan for a dip in their indoor pool.

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.

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:

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!
