Everybody has different opinions and impressions when it comes to hotel preferences. Some would focus on the room size and interior decor, while others would look at the location and amenities. But there’s one thing (almost) everyone would love to do under the warm equatorial sun in Singapore—swim!
Hotel swimming pools have evolved leaps and bounds over the years. Going beyond its basic functions, modern pools incorporate aesthetically pleasing fixtures and features based on carefully crafted concepts, exuding charm and atmospheric appeal for hotel guests who might end up snapping rather than swim.

As one of the newest hotels added to our cityscape, Park Hotel Alexandra is a hotel quite unlike the others in town. You might think it is strange to build a hotel in a relatively old neighbourhood, but that is precisely what had us falling in love.
Park Hotel Alexandra is no less polished and modern, and we have since had two staycations at the property. You bet we loved it.
Complete with an infinity pool, a premium roast buffet, one of the most gorgeous bars in Singapore and a stylish coffee place all within the premise, Park Hotel Alexandra is a charming one and here is Why You Should Avoid The Crowd in Town And Whisk Away to Park Hotel Alexandra.
To celebrate its grand opening, Park Hotel Alexandra has launched TRAILS OF ALEXANDRA, an interactive, discovery-oriented Facebook campaign.

You would never expect to find a swanky open-concept bar in Alexandra. This new hangout is called Aqua Luna, located on the 7th storey of Park Hotel Alexandra, offering an alternative view of the beautiful Queenstown precinct. The stylish alfresco bar is parked right beside the 25-metre infinity swimming pool, and boasts an exciting gourmet menu of bar nosh and exotic cocktails.
But more than its tranquil vibes and interesting variety of tantalising cocktails, Aqua Luna is a stunner and the perfect venue for post-work drinks with colleagues and/or a great night out with your beloved other half. Upon stepping to the outdoors of the pool level of the property, we were amazed and in complete disbelief. The circular rooftop bar was dimly lit and set against the evening skies, candy floss coloured post-sunset skies welcomed us, and our moods were instantly lifted; how can a so-called neighbourhood bar be so sexy?
We can just hear all of you who are sick and tired of the CBD’s overly crammed bars; it is time to make your way down to Aqua Luna, this all new tranquil oasis that we have been to several times now, and are completely in love with.
From now till 13 November 2015, readers of ladyironchef can get an exclusive 50% off the second drink at Aqua Luna (more details at the end of the post). So grab a cocktail and some light bites, watch the sunset from an alternative venue, kick back and enjoy an evening of being away from the madness in town. You deserve this break.
