HOLIDAYS, Living in... Singapore, Uncategorized SINGAPORE: JASMINE SPA SUITE 17 November 2010

On our last night staying at the Raffles Town Club in Singapore, we stayed in their Jasmine Spa suite, which was an upgrade from their Straits Suites (where we were staying beforehand). I was quite taken aback when I stepped into the room…. it was impressive, but a bit strange – haha! I guess they call it “spa suite” for a reason… imagine if you went to a nice hotel for a spa/massage. You know the private room you have the treatment in? Well, that’s what our room looked like…. with a bed stuck in the middle. The bed looked really out of place and it actually didn’t feel like a true hotel room, but like we were bunking in a hotel’s spa room or something. Hard to describe, but hopefully the photos make it a bit more clear!

The jacuzzi in the middle was incredible though – large and on a raised platform with a TV. Better yet, the water was only lukewarm so I could get in there (since pregnant women shouldn’t be in hot tubs). It was quite divine 🙂

Unbelievably, our room also had its own sauna, and a steam room. I’ve never been in a hotel room with those 2 private rooms! So strange 😛 Sadly, I couldn’t enter either one since pregnant women can’t use them full-stop 🙁

Overall, the jacuzzi in the room was the best, mainly because it was the only one I could use. However, given the higher price to our previous room, the previous one is better as it’s more of a classic suite – I found this one a bit random 😛

    I like the background in the last pic. Really cool surroundings. It’s a shame you couldn’t fully enjoy your hotel room.

      It’s gorgeous all lit up at night, and thank goodness for Singapore’s awesome tropical climate so we can swim any time of the day, heh

    The jacuzzi looks amazing! I had no idea that pregnant women were not supposed to go into saunas and steam rooms?
