W Singapore Staycation Review

IMG_5217

Our last family staycation for 2014 was spent at the very sophisticated W Singapore! We planned it on one of the weekends in December when my parents and brother flew to Taiwan for a one-week trip. Usually, we will stay over at my parents’ place over the weekend but this time, it was only the three of us! We had the pleasure of test driving the newest Toyota Altis and it really came in handy for the staycation! More on that in a separate post. Anyway, we were in high spirits when we left home but then it started to pour as we drove to Sentosa.

We reached 15 minutes before the check-in time at 3pm. Had to queue for a bit before being told that our room wasn’t ready and we would be contacted once our room was available.

I expected our room to be ready by 3pm sharp so we popped by Woobar for some light bites.

Truffle fries.

Sashimi with wasabi dip was very interesting!

We were almost done with our food at 3.20pm but nobody contacted us. The hubs joined the queue again, only to learn that our room was actually ready. Why didn’t anybody inform us?! Obviously, I wasn’t too happy about it and we were paying so much for such standards.

We booked the Fabulous room which is about 40 to 42 sqm. It comes with a balcony with pool view. W Singapore’s 240 custom-designed guestrooms are more spacious than city hotels, with more room for vivid interiors, state-of-the-art technology and dreamy amenities.

Bringing a baby along can be rather tiring! Chanelle wouldn’t stop crawling and we had to be on our guard at all times to make sure that she doesn’t fall off the bed.

40 inch LED TV.

The bathroom is gonna appeal to dating couples, but probably not family and friends.

See what I mean?! LOL. But at least it’s a stand alone bathtub.

A separate rain shower facility is available.

I’m also somewhat surprised that W Singapore provides Dasani bottled water. I was half expecting to see Fiji water instead.

You make me happy, when skies are grey :)

We hardly swim when we go for staycations but since Little misschewy loves being in the water, we packed our swim wear and her float along!

We got out of the pool as soon as Chanelle started to protest. Headed back to our room and she fell asleep even before I could give her a bath!

The husband and I didn’t have any concrete dinner plans so we walked to Quayside Isle before deciding on Oyster Bar & Japanese Cuisine. And guess what? The little bubs fell asleep again! Hahaha.

It didn’t look like we had a lot for dinner but we were actually quite full! Took a leisurely stroll and reminisced about our dating days before Little misschewy came along! The last time we were at Quayside Isle, I wasn’t pregnant yet! Hehe.

Here’s Chanelle eagerly biting into diced watermelon after she had her first taste of lemon. Check out our previous post!

It was a pity we didn’t manage to squeeze in time for another dip in the pool before checking out. By the time you are reading this, we are on our way to catch our flight! Stay connected with us on Facebook www.facebook.com/missuschewy and on Instagram @misterchewy and @missuschewy :)
