And so, we decided to do another staycation again, teehee.. This time round, it was meant for our wedding anniversary. :) DH has been wanting to do a staycay at W hotel (since Paris then Taipei…) and so he went ahead to reserve a wonderful room at W Hotel Sentosa Cove.
03.10.14: she is 2y9m5d old.
We were early and reached the hotel at around 1+pm, so we decided to give it a try to check-in early even though we were told that check-in time is at 3pm during reservation. To our surprise, the lady told us our room is ready and we can do the check-in now! :) She even told us that since it was for our wedding anniversary, they have kindly upgraded us to a suite.
Yes, SUITE. Not the first time we got upgraded to a suite in local staycation, hence we did not think much of it.
Here comes the REAL BIG SURPRISE! We got upgraded to the Fantastic Suite, which cost a whopping $1,900/night (excl GST) and it comes with a balcony with plunge pool! PRIVATE POOL just outside your bedroom, how cool is that?
I am sorry if I sound like a bimbo or mountain tortoise (frog in a well). But we weren’t expecting this kind of generosity and upgrade arrangement by W!
Alrighty, enough of the background story.. More photos await!
The living room with posh decor, 46″ LED TV and FREE WIFI! Can I bring the carpet back instead?
Guest Bathroom. Ahhh, I love the lamp and wallpaper too!
The king-sized bed bedroom that comes with 40″ LED TV… A family photo of us on the comfy bed and their signature motif headboard.
Bathroom with rain shower and a 26″LED TV for you to enjoy your favourite TV shows while soaking in the Jacuzzi bathtub! :D Look at the view outside! I can soak in the tub all day!
Captivating view of the Quayside Isle and yacht marina! Feeling like a richie rich but with view like this, who needs to work? :P Then again, we cannot afford such extravagant lifestyle if we don’t work. Having said that, I guess these people let their money work for them, not the other way round. :)
ALL the LED HDTV comes with Bose surround sound! Shiok to the max!
Tick tock tick tock.. My gift to DH but I personally think it fits me more? :P Maybe we can share wearing it. Heh!
There is a small walk-in wardrobe which is not in pic.
Someone was getting impatient especially seeing a pool! But we were famished and we need foooddddd…. Of cos, there is no way to dip in the pool at 3pm unless we wanna get sunburnt!
A couple pic of us back facing the pool. LO refused to take pic and hence we went ahead without her. HAHAHA..
Here is me in the Love Bonito Loretta Flare Dress. Love it soooo much cos it comes with sleeves and pockets! I have too many sleeveless dresses without pockets. Should I get another piece in another colour? :P LOL…
With her this time and you can see how unwilling she was… :(
We made a reservation for the hi-tea at 3pm, but we were told that there wasn’t any booking under DH’s name. Duh… Then again, the good thing about having staycation on weekday (despite a Friday and long weekend) is there weren’t much crowd and we got a nice table near the floor-to-ceiling windows! I love anywhere with natural daylight as long as it’s not hot! :)
Free flow of tea and coffee from 3pm to 5pm. The sushi with cheese is something new to me and since DH is not a fan of cheese, I took his while he took my chocolate wine tart.
We told the LO to snap a pic with us before we tuck in… Heh. Food and treat work on her at all time!
Chose sugar donut (her fav) over her fav pink colour macaroon!
The portion of the hi-tea dessert buffet is just nice for us. Service was impeccable as well, the staff who served us were friendly and attentive. Thumbs up!
Happy us, happy tummies and happy pic! :)
Back to the room for SWIMMING!
I really dun wanna spoilt your day by seeing me in bikinis. HAHA..
Even the toys came to join us.. And we lost the Rabbit (Clover from Sophia, I din know until my LO told me) somewhere in the pool.. :(
Inspired by a yoga mum, I attempted the upward bow pose for this shot. My gal looked amused here. HAHA.. It was obviously a failed shot, other than the not-so-nice posture, I was cropped but I refused to do another shot cos it was scorching hot!! My legs and hands were burning against the floor!! Ouch…
Enjoying the view of the marina.
Enjoying herself on the pool side daybed or I have no idea on what is it called… :P
Basking or rather baking in the sun as he needed some vitamin D. -_- Nothing wrong with the pic or camera, I heavily filtered this pic. HAHA
Meanwhile, LO continued her “swimming” in the bathtub. No photo of her nudity. HAHA..
Father & daughter bonding — slacking in the Jacuzzi bathtub and watched cartoon together..
Stretching the fats away by doing my favourite butterfly pose. ƸӜƷ
The sweltering hot sun was about to set, and I went out to the balcony for some shots.
I seriously wouldn’t mind a plunge pool sprawling around my balcony just right outside my bedroom!
My turn for a good bubbly wash in the Jacuzzi bathtub.. A really longgggg shower I had so farrrr.
We were supposed to dine out at Quayside Isle. But since we were given such a luxurious stay, we decided to order room service and dine in instead to make good used of our stay.
The food was mediocre and the chocolate cake was hard as a rock?! =_= Or maybe it was supposed to taste like this. Hmmm..
Did not take any night shot of the room and surrounding as we were all slacking on bed to catch HBO – Poseidon. Hit the sack shortly when the show ended as we were too tired. ZZZ..
Ordered room service for breakfast since our package did not come with breakfast. Breakfast on bed? Nope.. we wanted to eat at the balcony as it was pretty windy. So windy that my LO told me to off the fan! LOL. She looks like she is doing some hair modelling here ya?
Unfortunately, it started pouring heavily shortly so we shifted back to the room. But phew, thank God it did not rain on Friday else we would be missing so much fun! ;)
W-hotel, thanks for the pleasant surprise and wonderful stay. We were WOW and we look forward to coming back again soon. OR even other parts of the World if our budget allows. ^^
