There are many kinds of experience that people look out for when choosing a hotel for staycation. For the shoppers who cannot do without their retail therapy, hotels along Orchard Road and the Marina Bay area are your best bets. But for a staycation in a relaxing and quiet environment, yet still not too far away from the city, the new PARKROYAL on Pickering Street provides an impeccable experience that leaves you feeling rejuvenated.
This eco-friendly hotel boasts of a breathtaking metropolitan architecture that has changed the Singapore skyline. Expect lofty sky gardens with cascading plants, a gym with state-of-the-art equipment, a wellness lounge by the highly acclaimed St Gregory Spa, an exclusive Orchid Club complete with a mini library and the best selection of snacks and beverages, and a stunning infinity pool with colourful cabanas.
And where you seek comfort for the night, PARKROYAL at Pickering does not disappoint with their various rooms and suites. With clever utilisation of space, the room is complete with all you would of a modern hotel room – a huge bed with pristine white sheets, a work desk, built-in wardrobe, a bath tub overlooking the surrounding greenery outside, and quality toiletries. Wooden and stone elements are inculcated to complement the eco-friendly theme, and soft earthy shades are used for a clean and soothing feel. I could stay under the covers with a book, and laze in the room all day while embracing the tranquility of that sanctuary.
Lime, the all-day dining restaurant at PARKROYAL on Pickering, has a very good Sunday Champagne Brunch which is competitively priced at S$68++ (includes juices, soft drinks and coffee/tea), and S$98++ (with free flow champagne and house wines).
PARKROYAL on Pickering has fast become one of our favourites for a getaway within Singpore, and it is especially ideal for couples who are seeking a space to hideaway and to spend quiet time alone.
