[Staycation] 3D2N at Marina Bay Sands Hotel
I'll finally be sharing on my MBS staycation experience! I was really surprised to receive this staycation because I've never stayed here before. Of course, the one thing I really wanted to do was visit the Infinity Pool!
This MBS staycation was free thanks to Baby's club membership perk which entitled us to a free room. We were really excited to go on this free staycation at one of Singapore's most famous hotels, and we took it to as our Valentine’s Day celebration!
We were surprised to be able to secure our 3D2N stay on a weekend (Fri-Sun). This complimentary stay did not come with any meals at all. Basically it was just the room, but by being a guest at the hotel, we are able to enjoy the facilities such as the SkyPark, Infinity Pool and the Banyan Tree Fitness Centre.
Baby took a day's leave from his work to check in to the hotel, and our room allocation was at Lobby Tower 3. According to him, the hotel was really packed and there were at least 11 people in front of him waiting to check in! I joined him after I ended my work at 6pm.
Amazingly, we got a free upgrade without any additional surcharge, and our room was located on Level 42 with a City View. Needless to say, the view was truly gorgeous and amazing!
After our allocated 1 hour was up, a lifeguard blew a whistle and everyone was told to vacate the area. I was pretty impressed because this was literally the first hotel I stayed at that took social distancing seriously. When I stayed at other hotels during phase 3 of the Covid period, no one really kept track of how long the guests stayed in the pool!
Live life to the fullest, as we only live once! Having an afternoon tea is the only way to feel fancy without getting our stomachs too full. Therefore, we had an indulgent high tea affair at Renku Bar and Lounge which is located within the hotel lobby of Tower 1. It offers a spread of finger sandwiches which varies daily.
I like their tea concept which I found it to be pretty unique. They have a wide selection of tea blends by ETTE Tea, except for two unique tea blends which is exclusive to Marina Bay Sands.
Baby went for the 'Marina Pearls', which is one of the two tea blends exclusive to Marina Bay Sands. If you like floral light teas, then this tea suits you perfectly. I tried the other exquisite tea blend, 'Durian Lapis' which is also only exclusive to Marina Bay Sands. To my surprise, it tasted pretty good.
At Renku, guests are allowed to change their tea selection whenever they wish to. In total, we tried 6 different types of tea during our high tea session. Among all, I love the Masala Chai the best, while Baby likes the ‘Nasi Lemak’ Tea.
This meal was on me, and the damage was SGD90-ish after a 20% discount from Baby's MBS membership.
Baby had the Shoyu Egg Sandwich! The generous serving of egg mayo plus the onsen eggs really made his day! I had the Pulled Pork Sandwich, and it tasted terrific!
Despite the Covid Pandemic situation and the high occupancy of guests, I had a great MBS staycation and found that the staff was efficient and prompt. Everything at the MBS Hotel was beautiful and luxurious, and I loved experiencing a slice of the high life! Marina Bay Sands definitely lives up to its name and both Baby and I would want to come back for another staycation even if we had to pay for it!
Being a supportive and lovely wifey, I picked up a ring from Gucci for my Baby as his Valentine’s Day gift! See below for the unboxing video!
