Marina Mandarin Hotel Review: I Love Singapore

09 Jul 2019

I always love my time in Singapore! So much to eat and explore! My last stay of my recent trip was at the Marina Mandarin Hotel. I was very happy to try Meritus Hotels, a brand that was new to me. I had seen the property many times and always admired its great location on my previous Singapore visits. Just a five-minute walk from my room and I was at the water’s edge. The Marina Mandarin is a luxury hotel but has a bit of a corporate-business feel. I arrived by car and was greeted at the front door where I was then escorted to my top-floor Meritus Club room for a seamless in-room check-in.

On the way to the room I was flabbergasted about the massive size of the atrium in the center of the Marina Mandarin. It obviously offered a large sense of space, making it feel like I was outdoor.

The Meritus Club room had a design that fit together well, and a balcony that offered an impressive view of the Marina Bay and beyond! It was a true delight to work from the desk and enjoy the view. The Meritus Club room had everything I needed! The bed was king size and had super soft bedding. The controls for the air conditioning and lights were conveniently located bedside. There was also a Handy phone that offered some added convenience outside of the property.

The Meritus Club Lounge was located on the same floor as my room, how convenient! The Meritus Club Lounge features a breakfast buffet, massive afternoon tea spread, and an evening cocktail and canapés period. The lounge is separated into multiple rooms, each with a different vibe, and one room even had its own balcony.

In the evening, they even had unlimited Häagen-Dazs ice cream which you really can’t go wrong with. A majority of the food in the Meritus Club Lounge was quite tasty, although occasionally there were some items that perhaps sat for a little bit too long and became a bit dry. During my three-day stay each visit to the lounge was a delight, and I’d like to commend the staff for doing such a great job!

I also had a dinner at their Cantonese restaurant called Peach Blossoms. Long story short, the entire experience, including the atmosphere, service, food and drink were phenomenal. Read more details in this separate review article. I’d highly recommend it if you’re in Singapore!

The Marina Mandarin Hotel has access to both their large outdoor swimming pool and their fitness center on the same floor. The pool gets a lot of sun throughout the day. The fitness center is mid-sized and had everything I needed. That being said, I often chose to run outdoor and explore Singapore because of the convenient location. The Marina Mandarin does not have a steam room or sauna.

The Marina Mandarin Hotel has a lot going for it, including an exceptional location, fantastic and friendly service, quality facilities, tasty food, lovely club lounge, and more! The housekeeping staff were especially friendly, going above and beyond with a smile. Even on my late checkout day, they were happy to clean the room after breakfast. Without a doubt I can highly recommend a stay at the Marina Mandarin Hotel in Singapore as well as a meal at their Peach Blossoms restaurant! Go go go.

Peach Blossoms Restaurant: Mind-Blowing Cantonese Food in Singapore

09 Jul 2019

During my recent stay at the Marina Mandarin Hotel (which you can read about in a separate article here) I had an opportunity to eat at their life-changing Peach Blossoms Restaurant! The restaurant is located in the beautiful and massive atrium of the hotel.

My first impression was positive, I was delighted with the elegance of the design. Once seated, I realized that the food and wine menus were very extensive, making options somewhat difficult because I wanted to try everything! However, this wasn’t my first rodeo, over years of experience, I knew precisely which dishes would make me most happy. To start, I chose a Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Then, the first food item was the barbecued meat trio combination plate. I chose crispy pork, chicken, and duck but there are a few options to choose from! Eat up meat eater! Very fantastic indeed, all items melted in my mouth.

The next course was the Braised Bird’s Nest Soup with Black Truffle in Supreme Chicken Broth, which was my favorite bird’s nest soup ever! This was no normal bird’s nest soup, this was something luxurious and very special. It was much more rich than I have had in the past. I was sad when I finished it as I became a bird’s nest soup addict!

Next up was Braised Abalone with fish maw, scallops, prawn, sea cucumber, flower mushroom, and black moss, all served in a mini-clay pot. This was another favorite of the evening, just lovely.

For dessert I went for an order of Chilled Almond Cream served in a coconut and an order of mango purée with sago and pomelo served with lime sorbet. The Almond Cream was my favorite but both were incredible. Both desserts came with dry ice steam to add an artistic element to the meal.

I was very impressed by the Peach Blossoms Restaurant at the Marina Mandarin Hotel in Singapore. Throughout the evening not only was the food superb, but the staff did a great job at providing quality service. The interior design was very delightful as mentioned. Without a doubt, if you like Chinese food, especially Cantonese, you must visit Peach Blossoms Restaurant inside of the Marina Mandarin Hotel in Singapore! Foodgasm!

The St. Regis Singapore Hotel Review: Consistent Luxury

03 Jul 2019

Almost exactly three years ago today, I stayed at The St. Regis Singapore Hotel (read the amazing original article here.) It was indeed a very incredible experience, flawless from beginning to end. Now I was back again, ready to experience one of my favorite properties of all time once more. I wanted to see how it stacked up to that original perfect stay three years ago. The property’s location is next to the very famous Orchard Street in Singapore, which has everything you could ever need within a very short walking distance.

It’s like the staff were expecting me, the check-in process was smooth as silk. The lobby of The St. Regis Singapore is just as I had remembered it, grand and luxurious. Throughout the hotel there is artwork by Pablo Picasso and Fernando Botero.

I was then escorted to the memorable lift that had a seat to rest on. The rooms were just as beautiful as I remembered them! As far as room design goes, this is one of my favorites, of all time. The room is quite spacious and elegant, accented with wood. It all just fit together so well. Everything felt rich and solid, except the super soft bedding.

The bathroom was also spectacular with a large bathtub in the middle and then a separated toilet stall and shower stall on the sides. Every single material in the bathroom was of my liking, and I’m quite hard to please when it comes to interior design. There was a spacious closet which was big enough to make into a bedroom for a child, joking folks, but it could be!

On the second floor of The St. Regis Singapore, guests will find the outdoor pool, fitness center, and spa facilities. The relaxation facilities at this property are second to none! All hotel guests have access to the incredible wet bar area which includes steam rooms, hot tubs, dry saunas, outdoor patios, rain showers, and more. I visited these relaxation areas several times throughout my stay and loved them each time. What a great place to relax!

The breakfast of The St. Regis Singapore occurs on the lobby level. The food selection is quite massive, offering both Asian and Western options. I discovered a great food combination by combining Indian pickle with dim sum, a match made in heaven. You can thank me later! Even though the breakfast was quite busy at times, the staff did a great job and the atmosphere was always gorgeous.

What makes The St. Regis brand stand out from others in the luxury space, is the fact that they have an on-call butler service. This includes ordering complimentary tea or coffee with cookies whenever you’d like or having your personal butler assist with other functions such as preparing a bubble bath.

During the stay in Singapore, I got to try a barbecue dinner at LaBrezza Italian Restaurant located poolside on the second floor. The buffet had a fairly solid selection of items focusing on meat and seafood that could be grilled outdoor. My favorite items of the evening were definitely the oysters.

The staff surprised me with a gift of macarons! Not too sweet and with perfect texture, what a delight. I tried to just eat a couple but before I knew it, they had all disappeared.

JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach: Creative Luxury

30 Jun 2019

For those of you that know me, you know that I always enjoy trying something new. Over the years, I have become familiar with the JW Marriott Brand, but it wasn’t until this year in Singapore that I realized times at the brand were changing. The JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach is a whole new type of JW Marriott. This is the first JW Marriott that I have ever visited that had such an artistic flair. From the interior to the exterior of the building, the entire premises is a work of art! Located in one of the most prime locations in the Singapore, JW Marriott South Beach is a beautiful modern property with a lot to offer.

When I entered the room, I got slapped in the face with the bold design. Typically my JW Marriott experiences have been more of a business luxury experience, not this one!

The JW Marriott South Beach Singapore Hotel has two outdoor pools, one with a partial roof and the other which is fully covered. Both pools offered splendid views of Singapore. The gym is located on the 18th floor of the property and quite busy in the morning. There are only steam rooms and saunas inside of the spa but not in the changing rooms of the gym or pool. They do have a ping pong table so that slightly makes up for it.

For the duration of my stay, I had Marriott Executive Club Lounge access located on the second floor. This club lounge was basically a full-fledged restaurant. The executive lounge guests can enjoy an extensive buffet breakfast, afternoon tea, and hors d’oeuvres and evening cocktails for four hours! I’m always impressed by the JW Marriott cocktail hours, which are always extended. A great offering indeed. All three meals of the day can easily be covered in their lounge so no need to go out unless you really want to!

Madame Fan Review: A New Era of Cantonese Food in Singapore

30 Jun 2019

I love Cantonese food. What I’m not a big fan of is the old-school Cantonese restaurant dining rooms that are more like mess halls than restaurants. What I prefer is to be able to enjoy my Cantonese food in a beautiful and vibrant setting! Does such a place exist? Yes! Discovering the Madame Fan Restaurant in Singapore was a dream come true. Connected to the JW Marriott Singapore South Beach Hotel, which you can read about in a separate article here, has the type of dining room and service that dreams are made of!

To get the evening started, I went for a few cocktails at their bar. My recommendations would be the Rendition 3.2 and the (Not) Classic PB&J. These cocktails were created by the incredible mixologist and were both quite unique and enjoyable. The Rendition 3.2 includes green chili and citrus which really got me excited! An incredible level of freshness and spiciness, the perfect drink for Pierre.

I went for a five course tasting menu at the Madame Fan Restaurant. From start to finish the food was simply incredible. Starting out with the Sri Lankan Mud Crab Wonton was a great place to start, booming with flavor.

Next up were two duck dishes, one salad with pomello and one as Beijing Duck, but using a Scottish duck, they did have a different accent. So much juiciness, yet crispy on the outside made for a perfect evening of duck consumption. The Four Treasure Soup was a standard Cantonese style fish maw soup which included Hokkaido scallops. I loved it, but it was just too much to fit in my stomach, so sadly I only consumed half.

The Australian Black Angus Beef Tenderloin melted in my mouth because it was cooked perfectly. This was served alongside Taiwan Noodles which were a bit more subtle compared to the black pepper sauce of the beef.

To finish off the evening, the dessert was a Raspberry Sabayon. The service throughout the meal couldn’t have been better, the staff were great! The ambiance was magnificent and apparently a few days a week they offer live music, which I would love to try next time. Personally, the wine list wasn’t my favorite so I’d vote for cocktails! If you’re in Singapore and looking for top-notch Cantonese food in an elegant setting, I’d definitely recommend the Madame Fan Restaurant at the JW Marriott Singapore South Beach Hotel!

The Fullerton Hotel Review: Singapore’s Flawless Luxury Hotel

26 Jun 2019

For many years I was very excited to make a visit to the famous Fullerton Hotel Singapore! Luckily, on my recent trip, I was able to make my dream a reality. I was flying in from Bangkok, and as soon as I reached the top of the jet bridge, I saw a Fullerton Singapore representative waiting for me. Mr. Adwin was very welcoming and guided me through immigration and to the private Fullerton Hotel Airport Transfer. The Mercedes-Benz was nice but I could have sworn I saw two Rolls-Royces in the hotel photos! Maybe next time 😉

A quick 20 minute drive later and we were pulling up to the front of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. The property is in the Central Business District of Singapore, making in perfectly situated for utmost convenience. There was a delightful staff member waiting for me at the entrance of the hotel, to open the door of the car, and take me directly to the room for an in-room check-in. The Fullerton Hotel Singapore was originally the Post Office of Singapore and is nearly 100 years old. The property became a hotel in 2001!

I learned that the room I was staying in had recently been renovated, and it showed. It was incredibly gorgeous and felt like home. There were many features to take note of including all of the top-of-the-line technology, including the lighting, electric curtains, USB charging ports, complimentary tablet, Handy smartphone, Harman/Kardon bluetooth speaker, and much much more. The bedding was just perfect and a real dream to sleep in. I want this bed at home!

The room’s tea and coffee station had TWG Tea and a capsule coffee machine. I wouldn’t expect anything less in such a luxurious hotel.

For my stay, I had The Straits Club access. The Straits Club is located on the fourth floor and offers a buffet breakfast from 6:30am until 11:00am daily, afternoon tea from 2:30pm to 4:30pm, and evening canapés and cocktails from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. I liked how The Straits Club felt like a comfortable living room with multiple types of seating. The food and service was absolutely fantastic during my entire stay! If you want to really indulge, they have champagne at breakfast. I will not forget the incredibly charismatic Placidus who took care of me during my visits to The Straits Club. Keep up the good work!

For another breakfast option, The Fullerton’s main breakfast is on the ground level, along the Singapore River. It’s a great place to enjoy breakfast! The buffet is truly massive and delicious as well. If it’s not hot weather (I doubt it) you can enjoy the outdoor seating!

On the top of The Fullerton Hotel is The Lighthouse Restaurant and Bar. Read about the evening in this article. While visiting I enjoyed a nearly flawless dégustation menu. The restaurant’s dining room has an absolutely stunning view of Marina Bay. Our server Rey was a true professional and offered great hospitality during the entire visit. I’d highly recommend a window seat! A floor above the restaurant is the bar, which is open air which added to the ambiance.

The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is truly a landmark property. I was happy that the property beat many of my expectations, and in the end, I had a flawless stay. Most of the staff were great to deal with, but there were two outstanding employees that the hotel is very lucky to have, Rey from The Lighthouse Restaurant and Bar and Placidus from The Straits Club. These types of staff members make a good hotel a great hotel. The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is a superior luxury hotel in all regards, and I would highly recommend a visit!

The Lighthouse Restaurant Singapore: Lovely Food with a View

26 Jun 2019

Sitting atop the beautiful Fullerton Hotel Singapore is The Lighthouse Restaurant and Bar. First things first, I had an absolutely fantastic hotel stay at The Fullerton Singapore, which you must read about in a separate article here. The restaurant serves Italian Cuisine, and for the dinner, I went for the Degustation Menu with a bottle of wine. The menu consisted of five courses, and I was excited to get started!

If you visit The Lighthouse, I would highly recommend you get a window seat because just look at this view! If you sit next to the window, it’s basically just you and the Marina Bay separated by only a plate of glass. Lucky for me there was a beautiful sunset that I got to enjoy with a new friend, the 2015 Monte del Fra ‘Tenuta Lena di Mezzo’ Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso, Veneto, Italy. I’ll be the first to share that I’m generally not a huge fan of Italian wine, but this was a wine I fell in love with! Nice rich and full-bodied, just my style!

Nearly all of the items from the evening were incredibly tasty, but specifically my favorites were the seafood soup, open raviolo, roasted rack of lamb, and the pure perfection that was the dessert. I loved the balance and variety of the courses. The light seafood soup and then the heavier open raviolo recipe of the chef’s grandmother. Great to have this balance to keep my mouth guessing what was coming next!

The Lemon Delight at the end was the perfect finish to a very lovely evening. Served with a glass of Lemoncello, this dessert has several textures and flavors to bounce off of. Perfection!

The evening at The Lighthouse Restaurant was lovely, on all fronts. The service by Assistant Restaurant Manager Rey throughout the evening was impeccable! He was very personable and not too in-your-face. There was only one dish that I wasn’t a huge fan of. Without a doubt, I can recommend The Lighthouse Restaurant and Bar sitting atop The Fullerton Hotel Singapore!

The Fullerton Spa: Must Try Massage in Singapore!

While in Singapore, I had a chance to try The Fullerton Spa at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. The spa is located on the 1M floor of this beautiful hotel, which you can read about any separate article here. I went for the 90 minute Asian Heritage Signature Massage.

Soon it was time to go to the treatment room to get this party started! The treatment rooms were clean and beautiful in their minimalist design. The treatment began with a foot-bath and then it was time for the massage.

The Asian Heritage Signature Massage blew me away! It started out with focus on pressure point treatment, which from my experience wasn’t very common in the hundreds of other high-end massages that I’ve received. The talented therapist then used several unique techniques that I also wasn’t accustomed to which helped me slip into a deep state of relaxation. At the end, I left the spa feeling like I was walking on a cloud!

Hotel Jen Tanglin + J65 Dinner Buffet Review Singapore

24 Sep 2017

I’ve stayed at several Shangri-La hotels throughout the world and under the brand’s umbrella is Hotel Jen. Hotel Jen is a fresh and modern brand than caters to a younger audience. Singapore has two Hotel Jens and I stayed at the Tanglin branch. For this property, they really went out of their way to incorporate lots of artwork throughout the premises produced by a variety of international artists. They wanted to add a unique flavor to this property, and I think they’ve succeeded.

For my stay, I had a club room located on the 17th floor which is also where you can find the club lounge. When I opened the door, I felt a sense of calm and comfort. At first, it look like the bed was levitating, but silly me, this was just an impressive design. There was a built in sofa next to the window which turned out to be a good place to relax. The bed was comfortable, and I liked the simplicity of the headboard and bedding.

Something about being on the same floor as the club lounge got me excited. The club lounge offers a full breakfast, afternoon snacks and tea as well as evening hors d’oeuvres and alcoholic beverages. Along the entire length of the lounge, there are large windows to take in the Singapore city view.

During my stay at the property, I had a chance to indulge at their dinner buffet at the J65 restaurant. I’m really happy that it happened to be lobster themed the night that I went! Apparently, they change the menu often so if you’re looking for something in particular, you should check their dining schedule. I tried to sample a little of everything, and I can honestly say they were very consistent with great tastes. One of my favorite items of the evening was their made to order Laksa! It was quite busy and I can completely understand why. Pierre recommended.

As well as enjoying the steam room and sauna in the changing room, I also went for a full signature therapy spa treatment! The name of my treatment was called Ready Set Gold and included a full body massage with argon oil, Lucas face care and a scalp massage. The whole treatment lasted 105 minutes! I only got to take advantage of half of the facial because I forgot to shave that day, sad I know.  The treatment rooms were lovely and the masseuse was a true professional. She did a great job and even though my muscles were incredibly tight, when I walked out, I felt like a relaxed new man!

Hotel Jen Tanglin + J65 Dinner Buffet Review Singapore Asia Blog Hotels Singapore

To summarize, this hotel was lovely it offers practically all of the high-end features that the top Shangri-La properties offer, but in a much more trendy and modern design. The hotel isn’t so near any metro station but there are plenty of buses and of course there are always ride share services. Hotel Jen’s lounge put me in such a great mood, I’d insist you to get access as well. Overall, I definitely can recommend to you the Hotel Jen Tanglin in Singapore!

The So Sofitel brand always has in-your-face designs. They definitely kept this theme at So Sofitel Singapore. The hotel is on the smaller side but packs a very strong punch in the interior and exterior design. After checking in, I was escorted by the staff up to my second floor suite.

My large suite had very high ceilings which gave the feeling of luxury and elegance. There were so many things going on in the room, it took me a while to take it all in. There was an iPad which controls everything in the room, making Pierre’s life easier. I like the fact that they have a complimentary minibar of nonalcoholic beverages and snacks! Often refilled, these snacks helped me stay satisfied. Bravo for snacks!

My suite had a nice balcony that was a great place to people watch from!
