School ended in mid-June, and we celebrated with a two-night stay at the iconic Raffles Hotel, which has stood in the heart of Singapore for about 150 years and which recently underwent a thorough renovation. They were running special deals that made it far more affordable, and we figured it was something that we had to do at least once in our lives. Really glad we did – the place was luxurious, the staffers were amazing, and we had a great time overall. No complaints at all.
Some interiors of the lobby and our room:
And random photos from outside — the views, the facades, the courtyards.
As usual for our ‘staycations,’ we didn’t actually do all that much. It was about relaxing, spending time together as a family, taking our feet off the proverbial gas pedal. So what all did we get up to?
We posted for pictures:
We checked out artifacts like the famous grandfather clock in the hotel lobby:
And we ate. In-room breakfast:
In-room afternoon tea:
In-room evening meal:
That was about it! Can’t recommend the Raffles Hotel highly enough. We had a great time, and it was a great start to the summer.
