Looking to engage in some fun activities or even learn some new things during your staycation?
Besides a comfy, luxurious room and breakfast, these three hotels also offer enriching experiences that are guaranteed to create memorable family or friendship moments.
The hotel recently launched a series of specially curated pop-ups to offer unique experiences for guests.
The Art of Candlemaking on 19 January, conducted by artisans from To Be Calm, is ideal for those who want to learn how to create a bespoke scented soy candle using essential oils.
On 21 January, guests can enjoy an intimate salon experience elevated by cocktails and canapes at the Chef’s Table with bespoke shoemaker Josh Leong of Palola. Ladies will get to take home their very own pair of leather ballet flats or loafers. Each pair is handcrafted using Italian shoemaking techniques at Palola’s atelier.
There are also craft and culture workshops such as canvas painting and bracelet making; family-bonding activities such as scavenger hunts, movie matinees and Little Stars Culinary Workshop; and culinary discovery classes where you can learn to create your own signature cocktail, know your way around the definitions of rum and create your very own boba milk tea.
The hotel’s Lavish Retreat Package is perfect for a romantic urban getaway or a soul-searching, self-discovery journey. It offers late check-out as well as $80 in dining credit so you can tuck into the a la carte buffet at Oscar’s, craft your own tasting menu at Golden Peony or enjoy Afternoon Tea with some curated Gin and Tonic concoctions at the Lobby Lounge.
The Family Escape Package includes a complimentary connecting room for two kids aged 12 and below, or a cosy teepee for kids aged 5 and below. Kids also get access to the hotel’s Kids Club where they can enjoy activities such as drawing and cooking, play, laugh and make new friends. Kids also get their own set of amenities including bathrobes and toothpaste.
The hotel’s Family “Glampcation” Package treats families with young ones to a luxe glamping experience, set within its spacious, colonial-style Grand Deluxe Room or Stamford Suite.
Kids get to sleep in a dreamy tent, kitted out with take-home sleeping bags, animal plushies, fairy lights and fun activity packs. Kids also get to enjoy unlimited ice cream at Broadway American Diner.
For couples looking for a romantic escape, the hotel offers its Romantic Epicurean Soiree Package. Couples get to tuck into a sumptuous five-course dinner, paired with aperitifs, at 15 Stamford by Alvin Leung, before getting in the mood for love with chocolate-dipped strawberries and Taittinger champagne in the room. The next morning, enjoy a continental breakfast spread in the room.
