We checked out staycation packages at four hotels in Singapore over the past few months. These themed staycation packages with activities make staycations more exciting.
We particularly enjoyed the Gin experience at Oakwood Premier OUE Singapore which has obtained a hotel license earlier this year without requiring guests to stay less than six days. The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore has also collaborated with Monopoly to release its own version of the board game earlier this year. The five-star hotel has also launched a new Monopoly staycation package. The Quincy by Far East Hospitality has a QOOL Weekend Staycation package that is activity filled and The Westin Singapore launched a minimum two-night staycation package offering a great ‘fling’ weekend.
Oops! I’ve Ginned at Oakwood Premier OUE Singapore
Want to get away into a nice cosy one-bedroom apartment, that comes with a kitchenette that is fully equipped with utensils, pots and pans, a washer-dryer should you decide to do some laundry, a cosy living room for you to Netflix and chill or play some games with your Nintendo Switch, and a bedroom with a king bed.
That’s not all, the Oops, I’ve Ginned! weekend package also comes with a gin experience that will offer a glimpse into how the new Singaporean Gin brand Brass Lion is made at the Brass Lion distillery tour, where you will be whisked from your apartment in an Oakwood Premier OUE Singapore mini van to the distillery for the tour and back after that. Sample the gins after the tour. And if you want, you can pay for the cocktails at the distillery before heading back.
And if you’ve not had enough gin, mix your own gin cocktail in the comfort of your apartment. A 500ml bottle of Brass Lion Singapore dry gin is provided with a bottle of Gryphon Tea’s Pearl of the Orient with Lychee and dried lemons so you can mix your own gin cocktail. Instructions provided too. Get some close friends over to enjoy the gin with you or bring the bottle home if you can’t finish it.
And for those who don’t drink, enjoy the Monogram teas provided or a cuppa Nespresso coffee. As part of the turndown service, you can also request for a beverage including hot or cold milk, hot or iced Milo or hot or iced soy milk and a snack be it assorted flavoured macarons, cookies or gelato just before bed.
Buffet breakfast is available at SE7ENTH on the lobby level so that you get your fill. Enjoy eggs prepared the way you like by a chef.
