SINGAPORE: Orchid Suite - An overnight stay at the Sands

2011 Holy Week SEA Trip

Surround yourself in simple elegance.
Named after Singapore's national flower, the Orchid Suite exemplifies tropical hospitality.

The room offered to us was just a deluxe room but when i received the voucher in KL, we were surprised that our rooms are upgraded to a Suite whoaaa!  Why?  I have no idea... What matter is we were staying in an Orchid Suite without any additional fees!  Wohooo!!! another for this trip. 

WOW! That was actually the first word that came out from me when we get in to the room.  The hotel staff accompanied us and explains everything in there.  We are not used to this kind of luxurious hotel.  This is not the first time, but it was always nice to be treated well and feels like a Very Important Person.   

Dear Guest,

Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in having your room prepared.  We appreciate your understanding and hope that you enjoy the remainders of your stay with us.

" awww how sweet, and i love the chocolates it really tastes good! I want more..."

When I turned on the TV, this welcome message was flashed on the screen.  There are two 42" interactive flat screen television, located at the living and bedroom.

The main door, powder room, tea maker, Nespresso machine and a mini bar 

A four-person dining room table 

Stunning living room 

The breathtaking city view 

Executive work desk, stationery set and an iPod docking station 

a separate bedroom featuring a spacious, comfortable King bed and feather pillow that is set apart from serene living quarters and soothing contemporary decor. 

The beautifully designed, 97 square meter space offers floor-to-ceiling windows for ample natural light, and a spa-like bathroom with freestanding bathtub and walk-in shower.

Paiza bathroom amenities
a very dramatic view fronting Marina Bay

Premium bathrobe, In-room safe, hair dryer, shoe brush and shoehorn. 

Was this a surprise? Complimentary fruits when we get back to the room after the light and sounds show... hmmm how thoughtful.  

We hurried to the Sky Park infinity pool as it closes by 11pm.   One privilege we should not miss is the complimentary access to the Sky Park, only guests can use the pool.  It was indeed a nice and new experience, swimming on top of a great view looking at the picturesque city skyline.   We can almost sing a song “what a feeling, please believe it!.”

We even tried the Jacuzzi on the other side, with a different view fronting the waterfront bay.

We had so much fun that we forgot we have not eaten yet haha... so I decided to go to Clark Quay.  Mostly bars were open until we found this Tomo Izakaya, a Japanese restaurant that still served a full meal.  We also met some Filipinos having their On-The-Job trainings here.  The food and service were great, I am not sure if it's pricey or we ordered too much coz that was the most expensive meal we had during our three country tour.  We walk around Clark Quay first before going back, but too bad our camera batteries were already empty.  

We went back past 2am already, and yeah we are all dead tired, but no we didn't sleep yet.  We went to Tower 3 to check our friend's room to see how it looks like.  Well, I must say that both have a different appealing, but ours is I guess a way better aside from its city view.  After that, we really maximize our stay; we did pictorials in the room before we call it a day.. whew!

With only a few hours of sleep, we still have the energy and excited to have our breakfast.  For the complimentary breakfast, we can choose from three different restaurants in the lobby and we opted for Rise.  

Rise offers an international smorgasbord of culinary delights.  A buffet-style dining experience, catering only to hotel guests.   Rise blends the best of Singapore and Asian Pacific have to offer, with European and American influences.
