Hotel Review: St. Regis Singapore
St. Regis Singapore is the most luxury 5-star hotel and is located at the crossroads of the embassy district, the UNESCO World Heritage Site - Singapore Botanic Gardens, and the prime shopping belt of Singapore - Orchard Road, The St. Regis Singapore is an eminent spot where luxury resides. Let's find out more from TheHoursTime.
I checked into the Executive Deluxe Room and this is actually the most basic room at the St. Regis Singapore. That being said, my room was nothing short of palatial. It is 52 square meters, I could count it among the largest basic category, non-suite hotel rooms in Singapore, matched only by the likes of the Ritz Carlton Millenia or Shangri-la Singapore’s Valley Wing. The rest of the 5 star hotels most likely around 40 square meters.
The first thing I noticed about my room is that it had two sofas – one by the window, which by the way was at least 5 meters long, and another one right in front of my bed. The room had all the creature comforts that one would expect from a hotel of this standard – flat-screen TV, a minibar that was filled to the brim, complimentary coffee, and TWG tea bags. You find yourself in the most luxurious hotel. Not only that, before COVID-19, I heard many middle east Prince or King would love to stay at St. Regis Singapore. Anyway, what I found notable in this room were the following:
Multiple master settings for the lights -from the very dim to the very bright Bose surround sound system – I could literally see the speakers poking out of the ceiling! The sound quality was impressive and worth staying!
The bathroom was another luxury area. The huge marble bathrooms have standalone soaking tubs and premium spa-ready bath products. It may not be the largest hotel bathroom but the grandeur was very much prominent with a standalone tub and a TV to ensure guests don’t miss out on their favorite programs. Like other hotels of this standard, there was a separate shower (including jet showers) and toilet area while his and hers sink graced opposing sides of the bath area. Toiletries were from St. Regis’ in-house branded, Remede – same as the name of their spa. This is simply just "ATAS" and elegant at all!
One of my favorite hidden gems inside the St. Regis Hotel is the indoor and outdoor jacuzzis. The jacuzzi is free and is available for hotel guests. The indoor jacuzzi is warm water while the outdoor jacuzzi is cold water. I spent more than 3 hours in the jacuzzi just to relax and recharge.
The breakfast spread at St. Regis Singapore is not about variety. The emphasis instead is on quality and little details that really stand out. Like in any hotel’s breakfast buffet, one can spot old favourites such as bacon, scrambled eggs, pancakes, Nasi Lemak, Laksa, waffles, various types of pastries as well as fresh juices. These were so yummy and delicious! These were all
In short, I was most certainly impressed with St. Regis Singapore. The whole experience was topnotch! If I were to compare my stay here with my stays at other luxury hotels in Singapore, I would say that St. Regis stands out with respect to the rooms. These were some of the most well-appointed I’ve seen in Singapore and this is totally worth of money!
Another aspect where I have to hand it to this property is with respect to their F&B. While it’s practically a must for any decent luxury property in Singapore to have strong food offerings, St. Regis somehow managed to succeed adding in an air of exclusivity by having what is perhaps the most luxury Sunday brunch in the entire country.
