Remarkable Fairmont Singapore

While renewing my membership with Accor for another year, I remember that I have yet to blog about the last hotel I stayed at using my Accor membership.  Let me then feature Fairmont Singapore!

Located at the upscale Raffles City complex, Fairmont is so luxuriously impressive.  And like what its website states, “there is no better way to enjoy Singapore than to stay in the heart of it all”.  Location, service and comfort are the three major considerations on my recent trip to Singapore.  Reason behind it is because I am with Nengkoy who at her old age (yet still travels) requires impeccable attention and assistance.

super nice!

Everything went so well during our stay in Fairmont.  We arrived early in the hotel yet the check-in was quick, friendly and efficient.  The room was really fantastic and its amenities were remarkable!  I particularly love the Le Labo Rose 31 perfume body lotion as well as the soothing bar soap.  The bed was so soft and comfy I actually miss it now.  And by the way, the Nespresso machine inside the room was really a big plus!

The room is huge yet stylish and classy!  We enjoyed and loved everything in Fairmont.  And during our short Singapore stint, we would actually want to go back early to our appointed room after some short sight-seeing adventures of the city so that we can further enjoy the comforts of Fairmont.

 Fairmont Singapore is indeed highly recommended!  I love it!

Ibis Styles Singapore on Macpherson

Me and my sisters had a surprise long-weekend getaway for Nengkoy (my mother).  We went to Passion Made Possible, Singapore!  We unfortunately had a red-eye flight that requires us to arrive in Singapore around 1:00 AM.  Considering that it would only be for a short period of time until we check-in in our chosen hotel and me being an Accor member, we prompted to have our first night in an Accor budget hotel.  We decided to head to Ibis Styles Singapore on Macpherson.

simple yet functional…

super nice… super clean… super comfy…

Our decision to stay at Ibis Styles at Macpherson area of the City State was a surprisingly pleasant experience.  Present Macpherson is like the city center of Singapore ten or fifteen years ago.  With the fast paced development in this part of the planet, I will not be surprised that after another 10 years, the seem-to-be suburb Macpherson section will be like what the city center now.

comfort indeed!

love the orange color…

our room number 2…

This Ibis Hotel branch in this part of commuter-belt-Singapore was exuding with fineness.  The room was surprisingly big for an Ibis-type of a room.  Its impeccable cleanliness, unsullied orderliness and warm service merits above average distinction.  Moreover, considering the bargain price of their rooms, the complimentary buffet breakfast is more than what I and Nengkoy would consider simple.

I have always been a fan of the Ibis hotels’ modern, minimalist and contemporary colors and designs!  Ibis Styles Singapore on Macpherson made my fondness towards Ibis to simply linger on.

Simple pero nays!

A Stay at Novotel Taipei by a Novotel Fan

I think I am a fan of sister hotels Novotel and Ibis (both are members of the huge Accor Hotels).  These hotels as much as possible has always been my go-to hotels each time I am out of the country.  It is proved by the numerous posts I had about Novotel and Ibis.  This has been the hotel I stayed at when I was in Casablanca, in Bangkok, Singapore, Melbourne and last year in Zona Rosa, Mexico.

The latest room I had with this sister hotels is the one in Taoyuan, Taipei, Taiwan.  And after having been so impressed, and though considered mid-scale and budget types of accommodation, I can truly say that Novotel and Ibis has been my favorite.

While on transit and on my way to New York, I chose to stay for a day and an overnight in Taipei.  I initially planned to revisit the city of Taipei while on a stopover but because of the amazing facilities and amenities of Novotel in in this part of Asia, I chose not to roam the streets of Taipei and instead stayed within the confines of the amazing hotel!

Novotel in Taipei is a huge airport hotel with free airport shuttle!  It offers great buffet breakfast selection which is typical of a Novotel.  And it was my first time to use the gym facilities of a Novotel, which actually is huge and is so complete based on my typical gym routine.  At dinner time, I rested my gut from ketosis and ordered the classic Taiwanese Beef Soup Noodle.

some cool hallway!

super nice, super huge!

Bitin is a Tagalog word for “wanting more”… and that was my general feeling when I left Novotel, Taipei.  Not because they have less but because it has so much that I wanted to stay more. I will definitely book my future stays in a Novotel…

Ay hart Nobotel…
