Recently I had the pleasure to indulge in a staycation at ParkRoyal on Pickering, Singapore’s first hotel in a garden. The entire stay passed like a breeze, thanks to the great service, wonderful lush atmosphere and lovely food and drinks served. My bestie Fion and I stayed at the Orchid Club Deluxe Room and enjoyed access to the Orchid Club Lounge which provides afternoon tea, cocktail and breakfast. I fell in love with the hotel’s architecture which integrates organic lines and greenery so seamlessly. All in all, I definitely recommend this place as a weekend getaway for locals and a hotel of choice for foreigners!

Check in counter that resembles the base of the grand canyon.
Refreshing calamansi drinks served at check in.

Wooden interior and earthy colours makes for a luxurious yet comfortable experience.Fully decked mini bar, with the bottle of wine Fion brought, heh.
Bathroom integrates with the hotel room to give a very expansive feel.Sustainable efforts even in their bottle water! <3
Really appreciate the fresh fruits!
View of the city from the comfort of our room!
After putting our bags down, we headed to the Orchid lounge on the 16th floor for afternoon tea.

Back to the Orchid Club Lounge for cocktail & bites!
This mushroom ragu is super awesome and delicious! It’s made of eggs and flavoured mushroom and I went back for 2nd serving (and was tempted to go back for 3rd, lol)!
Then Fion and I headed out to The Central which was a stone’s throw away for some shopping! We went to shop at Naiise but I didn’t snap any photos, haha. It’s this shop that has quirky local designer lifestyle products.Watsons drugstore if you need anything!Lots of eating places available!Live performance by the Clark Quay river on a Saturday evening! We just sat down and listen for 30 minutes, soaking in the atmosphere.View as we’re walking back from The Central.Enjoying a drink that aptly describes our relationship! ^^
Changed out and ready to chill for the night!
Enjoyed our Moscato that Fion brought back from her recent Aussie trip. <3
