Earlier last month I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Singapore, a city I had been dying to see for a very long time. I must say, it did not disappoint and I anticipate the day I can return.
I was lucky enough to stay in two beautiful accommodations. The first being So Sofitel which is a luxury boutique hotel that has gracefully managed to fuse the soft and delicate french ambiance with modern, sleek Singaporean designs with a tiny help from the legend himself; Karl Lagerfeld. It is conveniently located minutes away from Chinatown and Marina Bay and best of all, a hawker centre just at your finger tips. We were greeted immediately by the attentive and hospitable staff who escorted us up to our room. We stayed in their So Lofty Suite that had beautiful french decor filled with high technology such as the ipad room control and the built in nightcove device that helps you have a peaceful nights sleep. My favourite part of the room was by far the bathroom which had a bathtub big enough for two, his and her toiletries, the twin rain showers and to top it off, the fluffy bathrobes designed by Karl Lagerfeld. Outside of the room, the hotel amenities include the So-Fit gym, the So-Xperimental restaurant and the So-High Rooftop bar. You can enjoy delicious cocktails whilst having a front row seat overlooking the Singapore skyline or take a dip in their infinity pool or both!

The second place we stayed at was Sofitel Sentosa Resort and Spa which gave us the chance to explore Sentosa, something we wouldn’t have planned for otherwise and I’m so glad that we did. Because Sentosa is across the bridge, it was approximately 30minutes from the central parts of Singapore, however it was still really easy to get around. In saying that, when you’re staying here, there was so much to do that we almost didn’t have to leave the resort at all.
The resort itself offers amazing spa services, international breakfast buffet, and much much more as we came to discover! We stayed in the Junior Suite and were immediately greeted by a personalised welcome treat on our fluffy king sized bed. Beautiful peacocks constantly roam the oasis of gardens that fill the grounds.
On top of all that, we indulged in a little So Life treatment at the So Spa. It was a relaxing 4-step detox program.
1) Detox – 15-minute Galaxy steam
2) Balance – 15-minute deep stretching
3) Regenerate – 60-minute deep tissue oriental massage
4) Nourish – Healthy Acai bowl at The Garden restaurant
I wasn’t able to take any pictures because I wanted to really unwind but trust me when I say that this was the highlight of my trip! The galaxy steam room felt like we were really in the solar system and as someone who absolutely can’t stand people touching them and gets fidgety from all massages, I was able to really just let go and everyone in the room with me can vouch for how relaxed I was thanks to my roaring snoring 😅

This goes without saying, everyone I met was so polite and delightful. Singaporeans are probably the kindest bunch of people I’ve ever met! All the locals were so helpful and were quick to recommend delicious places to eat. The staff at both accommodations were extremely friendly and delightfully happy!
Here are some extra snaps from the trip
