Hot on the heels of our blog post on The Chewys’ very first Singapore staycation, we have lined up another mega blog post filled with many photos taken during the 1st Year Anniversary Party and staycation at Oasia Hotel! The party was very fun and lively; with lots of cocktails and chocolates to go around. As for the staycation, we are summing up our experience in three words: awesome, impressive and exclusive! 😀
Oasia Hotel is situated in the heart of the charming Novena enclave, just a stone’s throw away from shopping malls, Novena Square Velocity and Square 2, as well as the Novena MRT Station. Talk about extreme convenience and accessibility! Since it was a little early for us to check-in, we settled our lunch at Square 2’s Sakae Sushi before crossing the link bridge over to Oasia. At about 2pm, we proceeded straight to Level 22 because that’s where the check-in/check-out is done for Oasia Club rooms or suites guests.
The club room that we stayed in for the night is on the 24th floor, highest being the 25th. The room features understated modern decor, subtle hues of nature-inspired elements and ambient lighting that will soothe one’s senses.
All Oasia Club Room guests will also enjoy very exclusive privileged access to The Living Room and its pool facilities on the 22nd floor, as well as complimentary breakfast, cocktail and all-day coffee, tea, juices, soft drinks and alcoholic drinks at The Living Room, complimentary one piece of suit pressing per stay (non accumulative) and daily newspapers.
Fresh fruits in our room. How nice! 🙂
There’s even stationery! It’s all the little things and personal touches like these that are both welcoming and intuitive, which left us impressed.
We love listening to music and we were grinning from ear to ear upon seeing the iPod/iPhone docking machine! 😀
Most hotel rooms only have like two or three pin power point sockets so it was pleasant to have this USB power socket. One USB cable does the trick of charging all your electronic devices like your camera, mobile phone and MP3 player. At least it works for me! Imagine the hassle of having to bring ten different chargers for all your devices. 😛
All Oasia Club rooms are equipped with unlimited broadband access. Here’s misterchewy calling the reception to find out what’s the correct ‘last name’ to key in together with our room number, in order to log onto the WIFI network.
46 inch LED television!
Woots! Complimentary mini bar is rather well-stocked. 😀 😀 😀
If you want a hot drink, there’s also Nespresso coffee-making facilities! 😀
Not a fan of coffee? There’s Naturalis tea!
We went, “Whoaaaaa!” In this wardrobe, there are bath robes, bedroom slippers, iron with ironing board, and even a large umbrella! Very thoughtful indeed!
And here comes the part many would be concerned about, other than the bed. Bath tub on the left, rain shower on the right!
I first had the chance to use these bath amenities from Thann when I stayed in one of the hotels in Taiwan. Madly in love with the aromatic wood scent!
Everything that you need, it’s in there! Toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, shaver, showering cap, cotton buds, loofah, etc!
Heh heh heh. You can derive a little bit of fun and excitement from watching your partner shower! 😛 The blinds can be operated with a simple click in the bathroom.
Same goes for the blinds and shades in the room! We were greeted by a very breathtaking view of the city! Basically, the husband and I just sat on the ledge and admired the sight for a good 10 minutes 🙂 Haha but of course, we had to pull down the blinds after a few minutes because it was getting kinda hot! 😛
As we had a couple of hours to kill before the event, Hubby Chewy and I went for a little tour around the hotel! Went to level 8 first.
The swimming pool looks very nice right! I like the ‘feel’!
There’s a jacuzzi too!
The gymnasium is located on level 8 too. Not very big but it has a handful of cardio machine like the treadmill and stationary bike. Those who are on an endurance or strength training regime can make use of the free weights and the all-in-one machine!
And now, level 22! Over here, Oasia Club room guests get to enjoy very exclusive benefits and be pampered like kings and queens!
Tadah! This is The Living Room! Very nice place to chill out!
Here’s a sneak peek of the setup for the event at night! 😉
We pushed past the glass door and stood in awe in front of this very beautiful infinity pool which boasts a magnificent view of the city! Oh man, I wish I could jump right in! Anyway, this is only open to club room guests!
This jacuzzi looks way bigger than the one we saw at level 8!
How relaxing it is to just lie here and enjoy a glass of orange juice as you get your dose of Vitamin D! Just remember to apply sunblock! 😛
Hey hey hey! That’s not all to it. Light bites by the pool are available for club guests between 6-8pm at the Club Lounge. If you are like me who gets hungry after a swim, you should rejoice to this! 😛
Since the event was scheduled to start at 7pm and we didn’t have time for dinner, we ate a bit from the spread.
We are now ready to party! I love how these glasses are being made use of here. Brilliant!
Some of the early birds that night 😛
Very addictive Monbana chocolates from France! I loveeee dark chocolates 😀
Pretty Monbana girls who flew over to Singapore as a team!
I met winner of Project Superstar Season 2, Daren Tan Sze Wei!
Turns out that he’s the Sales and Marketing Director of Naturalis! Their products include teas, jams, spreads, honeys and sauces.
The bartender was preparing the welcome drink for everyone, which made use of products from Naturalis.
Summer’s Bouquet is a lovely concoction of vodka, elderflower syrup, Singapore Sling tea, lemon and ice cubes!
I’m sure everybody present that night enjoyed the exclusive Chocholatier Masterclass conducted by Mr Geoffroy Maubon, who’s the first barista of Monbana!
I can’t recall the name of this drink but I loveeee its color very much! My favorite color 😛
Next up was the highlight for the night, the unveiling of Oasia’s signature cocktail drink! It has also been very aptly named, “L22“.
Since we were there to celebrate Oasia’s 1st year anniversary, we couldn’t go without a massive birthday cake topped with macarons that brought about surprised gasps from the awe-stricken audience!
We called it a night after singing the birthday song and grabbing a piece of macaron! What a night! 😀
Hahaha I kinda sabo-ed misterchewy to be interviewed instead of me doing the job because I’m camera shy! Oops! 😛
Back in our room. LOL! I told misterchewy I’m gonna do a test shot and he did this pose. Super cheeky la!
Oh yes, after the event ended, I was feeling kinda hungry and we hopped over to Novena Square. It’s that convenient! Had a craving for sashimi, as usual, and we grabbed some from Cold Storage. Half price somemore. Hahaha!
Feeling very refreshed after a long hot shower! 😀
Face masking time for us! I swear we friggin look like Alien Workshop! LOLOLOL.
The bed was way too comfy and we decided to just lie there watching Titantic on our iPad! 😀 😀 😀
I can’t believe I got hungry again towards the end of the movie! Hubby Chewy then suggested that we order something from the supper menu that’s available from 11pm to 5am by calling room service! He had the fries while I was contented with my mushroom soup with truffle oil.
Time for bed! A couple who brushes their teeth together, stays together. Hahaha! 😛
We had a very good sleep and woke up to the rhythmic pitter patter of raindrops against the window pane early next morning. 🙂
Nothing beats lazing in bed with your loved one while listening to music from the iPod docking machine! It was fabulous! We played songs from Rita Ora, Katy Perry, The Wanted, Jayesslee, Jay Chou and many more. 😀 😀 😀
The husband and I have a thing for having breakfast in the hotel. Good thing we remembered to tick the items that we wanted and hung our order on the door knob before we slept the night before.
I don’t have much of an appetite in the morning and settled for the mini pancakes and some cornflakes while misterchewy had a hearty American breakfast with bacon and poached eggs!
Woots! Breakfast is served! No words can explain how blissful we felt 😀
That’s all folks! Have a fantabulous weekend and a lovely holiday on Chewsday! 😛
