After a magnificent stay in Kuala Lumpur, it was time to head over to Singapore. The first hotel that I visited was the St. Regis. This was actually my first introduction to the St. Regis brand, and I must say I was very excited! If you’re familiar with Singapore, then you’ll know Orchard Street. The hotel is about a five minute walk from the Orchard MRT station.
Singapore is not very big and this is a great place to be. This is where you can find all of the high-end designer brands and many hotels. You’ll quickly notice the strong feeling of luxury when you walk in the front doors of the hotel. You’re welcomed to a very large and impressive lobby.
After an effortless check-in, I was escorted up to the room. I must say that I was super excited because I was already enjoying the design throughout the hotel. When I entered the room, I fell in love. We all have our personal preferences, and I must admit that this is my favorite style. Classic yet elegant luxury.
The way that everything fit together was flawless. Dare I say that this is the most cohesively designed hotel room that I have ever visited? I dare. I did not spot one flaw throughout my stay. Not only is the bedroom beautiful, the bathroom is simply gorgeous!
Of course, everything was covered with marble and there were two separate sinks. The bathroom is equipped with a beautiful bath in the center. There’s a very conveniently located TV in the mirror and it makes a great place to relax. Heaven.
During the stay, I also had a chance to try their signature massage. This is a massage where they use hot stones to loosen and relax your muscles. I must say that this was a phenomenal massage. My first ever hot stone massage and afterwards, I felt like I was walking on a cloud. Perfection.
In the spa area, they also have an area called the wet room. They have one in each of the male and female locker rooms. Just as the rooms are super cohesive, the design of the wet room was just gorgeous. If you’re wondering, these are where the sauna, jacuzzi and steam rooms were. Gorgeous!
Not far away is their gym and outdoor pool. It’s all on the same floor. The convenience is unreal. The gym is wonderful. Lots of new equipment and it overlooks the pool which is always a great touch. They also have their Italian restaurant on the same floor. You’ll be able to read about my dinner there in a separate article.
For the privileged, they offer a cocktail hour that is accompanied with canopes in the evening hours. It’s always a nice way to relax after a long stressful day of eating. Wink.
During my time at the hotel, I was able to experience breakfast in two locations. One was in the main dining room. The design was of course gorgeous like the rest of the hotel. The food was also of high-quality. However, the hotel was so busy I felt a little claustrophobic. I believe it was because I just hit it during a peak period. All in all, the breakfast there was nice.
The second place I was able to experience breakfast was of course the boss way, with room service. I prefer the private atmosphere of room service the most. The food was delicious. Is there anything better than sitting in your bathrobe, eating breakfast in the privacy of your own room? The answer is no, it’s the best thing in the world.
A feature I really enjoyed was the St. Regis butler service. Lots of hotels have butlers but this was above and beyond the norm. Instead of simply sitting back and waiting for you to request something, they were active in making sure you had a pleasant stay. For example, they offered to draw a bath without even being asked. Not just any bath, a magical bubble bath accompanied with champagne and chocolate. If this isn’t heaven, I don’t know what is.
On the day of checkout, the hotel went above and beyond again with service. They offered a private transfer in one of their Bentleys. It was much appreciated!
As I said earlier, this was my first stay at a St. Regis hotel and I was definitely made into a believer. I really hope that this is the quality I will receive at all of the St. Regis properties in the future. Every aspect of the stay was wonderful. When I go on vacation, I want to be pampered and taken care of and that’s exactly what I got at the St. Regis in Singapore. I’m not even being paid to say this folks. The St. Regis is fantastic and I highly recommend that you visit them in Singapore!
