– Sponsored Staycation –
What better way to kick off the first weekend of 2014 than by pampering and treating yourself to a revitalizing Singapore staycation? Here’s a photo of us, happy to have finally checked into Capri by Fraser Changi City!
Capri by Fraser is a new hospitality concept which cuts through the conformity of typical hotels, bringing together the extensive range of facilities and services of a smart hotel together with the comfort and convenience of a full serviced residence, designed to meet the 24×7 lifestyle needs of today’s tech-forward travellers.
The hotel which just had its grand opening in January 2013, is located moments away from Singapore Expo, Changi City Point, and a mere 5 minutes from Changi Airport. There is an airport shuttle service which runs to and from the airport on a frequent basis. The MRT station is just opposite the hotel, which makes travelling to popular shopping belts like Orchard Road extremely convenient for both locals and overseas guests.
The lobby area exudes sophistication and yet, feels warm and homely at the same time.
The check-in procedure was pretty smooth. No hiccups whatsoever.
I always look forward to swiping the electronic hotel card key and pushing past the room door to see what surprise awaits me! We were given a 44sqm Studio Premier room on the 6th floor which is immensely spacious as compared to the rooms of most hotels that we had reviewed over the previous two years.
Welcome fruits and drinks.
The king bed looks so tempting!
Gotta love the extra living space! Perfect for lounging on the couch and watching movies on the LED television all day long. You can borrow DVDs from the hotel and play them on the DVD player as well.
Another unique feature about Capri by Fraser which I adore is the kitchenette! You are free to do light cooking in the room but we didn’t because yours truly can’t cook to save her life. LOL.
Electrolux microwave oven
One of the major advantages of induction cooking is safety, especially if you have young children in the hotel room. The stovetop stays cool even when you are cooking.
A must-have at every hotel stay these days, the Nespresso machine!
The bathroom is connected to the bedroom on one side and the walk-in wardrobe on the other. We didn’t have a bathtub but we loved the rainshower feature.
The safety deposit is also unique because there is a charging point inside where you can charge your devices while locking them safe should you decide to leave the room.
Played songs from 98.7fm via the powerful Geneva sound system.
The view which greeted us when we looked out the window!
Hopefully this is a better shot of our room enough to justify its magnificence. I can’t emphasize how awesomely huge it is!
Another selfie before we check out the hotel amenities! I realized I blend well with Capri’s choice of cheery color, orange 😀
There are 24/7 laundrettes on every floor which go by the name Spin & Play because all you have to do is chuck your laundry into the washing machine and play while you wait!
This is on the 6th floor, where you can utilize this unique-looking cycling machine to get some cardio exercise.
There are also interactive games such as Wii and XBOX, etc in the Spin & Play rooms on selected levels.
24/7 gym with pool view. The 20-metre pool is very cool too, because there’s a hydro treadmill if you are sick of doing laps after laps.
I think misterchewy fell in love with the suntanning rocking beds.
If swimming is not your thing, there are bicycle loan services as well!
The Pod is a 98sqm function room for up to 36 persons classroom-style seating. Looks very relaxing and fun to just lie around on the giant bean bags!
Keep yourselves occupied during your staycation by borrowing some console or boardgames to play.
We were hungry from all the walking and decided to pop by Delite which is open from 10am to 7pm serving soups, burgers, pizza, sandwiches and other light bites.
The husband had Buffalo Wings ($15) to go with his pint of Erdinger.
My Albacore Tuna Sandwich ($13) tasted delish. Loved the flaky tuna and crusty Turkish wholewheat toast.
Caprilicious is an all-day dining oulet with hotel buffet breakfast, set lunch, a la carte dinner, and 24-hour room service.
Also located on level 1, Drinx has quite a few Happy Hour deals!
Boys will always be boys. The husband was having fun with the XBOX in one of the Spin & Play rooms while I played Hay Day on my iPad. Hehe.
We had late dinner and decided to have it in the comfort of our room. We phoned Caprilicious and it didn’t take long for our food to be served.
Char-grilled Portobello Mushroom ($11)
Rock Lobster Bisque ($13)
Seafood Tom Yum ($11)
Saffron Risotto ($20)
Grilled Lamb Cutlets ($32)
Snuggled in bed and was planning to watch Pacific Rim which we borrowed earlier. Decided against it in the end when we realized that there would be violent content that I better not expose myself to right now 😛 Off to slumberland!
Breakfast in bed is the ultimate experience! Nothing beats waking up to the smell of delicious American breakfast and a glass of freshly squeezed juice.
Our staycation experience at Capri by Fraser Changi City was a splendid one and we felt really reluctant to check out after a night’s stay. We will be back again with little misschewy! In the meantime, do check out Capri’s Lunar New Year Festive Staycation Package for a really good deal!
