Now, the latter emphasizes on the nostalgic aura exuded by the Village Hotel Katong. For a little over S$250, you may enjoy a memory-inducing accommodation for two adults and two children. Take your children to the olden days by playing a free Singaporean family game set or by immersing yourselves in authentic Peranakan high teas. This ultimate staycation embodies the #throwback that Millennials overuse today. Booking period for this package is until December 30, 2019!
STAYCATION WITH FRIENDS
There are two ways to go about it – you can either camp out or slumber in. For camping out, you may consider forming a tent at East Coast Park. Skate or cycle your heart away, before indulging in a barbecue feast or picnic by the view. Having no bicycle is not a problem as you can rent from there.
For squads who prefer staying in, you may consider staying at Hotel G or Hotel Mi. Hotel G’s wide selection of 308 rooms are categorized from Good to Greater. Oh! I forgot to mention the affordable rates that start from S$128. The place is a surefire steal considering that it is nestled between Bugis and Dhoby!
I am sure that you are wondering about Hotel G‘s aesthetics. The rooms are decked out in an artistic or rather vintage-style manner. Its gym sways to the industrial design with its grey brick walls and monochromatic portraits. Burning calories through the punching bags, treadmills, and cycling machines is tiring. So, relax at the bar called Ginett. It serves up French wines that cost about S$6 at least.
Lastly, you may score a room for about a hundred-dollar a night at Hotel Mi. It stretches your buck as you can enjoy the in-house amenities such as the pool and the gym. The rooms are airy with a delightful modern look. However, the real steal is its superb location. It is merely a minute away from the Downtown Line. Spoil your options at it is surrounded by a slew of cafes, marts, and stores!
