Anniversary Staycation at Swissotel The Stamford

28 October 2016 marked our 9th year wedding anniversary and the following day marked my 38th birthday. The ever thoughtful hubby surprised me with the prettiest bouquet and a staycation at Swissotel The Stamford. I have always been vocal about my preference of receiving gift of experience than material things and I am elated that my hubby took it to heart.

Here's how our staycation went...

We attempted to check in at around 11am but the room with the best marina bay views is not available yet. We were given a choice to take other available room and check in right away or wait for the room with the best views. We chose to do the latter.

Since the hubby booked us a buffet lunch at Equinox which starts at 12nn, we just deposited our luggage at the Bell Desk and went straight up at the 70th floor.

 K took some photos of us while waiting for Equinox to open its premises for the guests.

The view at 70th floor was nothing short of spectacular! The kids kept saying wow whilst viewing Singapore's stunning skyline. "We're on top of the world, mom!", G exclaimed. Obviously, he couldn't hide his excitement. My boy has a penchant for tall buildings and architecture. He kept telling us he wants to be an architect like his dad when he grows up.

The kids tremendously enjoyed the buffet spread as much as the amazing views while eating. I will try to blog about it separately, hopefully sooner than later.

After our epic lunch buffet at Equinox, our room at the 47th floor was finally ready and this is what greeted us upon entering the room.

When the hubby booked the hotel, he mentioned that we are celebrating a special occasion. The hotel treated us with a bottle of wine and chocolate cake which was served as a dessert during our lunch buffet at Equinox. So apt with their tagline, encouraging guests to #LIVEITWELL.

Here's G who can't wait to dive in the master bed. The extra bed he was stepping into was for K.

Our balcony was locked for safety reasons (we have a small kid) but the hubby unlocked it for a while to take this photo. It was gloomy but the Singapore skyline is looking spectacular nevertheless.

In every staycation, the kids cannot wait to swim so we checked out the pool right away after settling our stuff in our room. Thankfully, they had more than enough of water fun before it started to drizzle.

We went to check the gym before heading for dinner but it is strictly for 18y/o and above. After having dinner the Raffles City, we went back to our room to enjoy this unrivaled night views of the Marina Bay area before finally succumbing to slumberland.

Please tune in as I will be updating this post with how our day 2 went.
