We recently returned from a quick trip to Malaysia and Singapore. Filled with venue recces, this was definitely one very interesting trip! Our first couple of days in Singapore were spent at the uber luxurious Four Seasons. This 20 storey modern building is in a fabulous location just off shopper’s paradise – Orchard Road! We were looking forward to this stay as we were booked in the exclusive couples floor. Yes, this hotel has a couples only floor – the 11th floor of this hotel is relaxed and luxurious, even equipped with lighting that changes three times a day to create a romantic ambience. This is THE place to stay for honeymooners, couples who want a quick getaway or pretty much anyone who wants some quite time – you definitely wont be disturbed on this floor!
We got to the hotel at around 8 am after an early morning flight – usually a time I dread, as I am not sure whether our room will be ready or not. Well this hotel definitely surprised us! Not only was our room ready for us, but we also had a cozy little table with breakfast set up by the window! Muffins, croissants, a variety of fruit and pastries, juice, tea, coffee – Definitely made us feel special :-)
Now, on to exploring the room – there was something exciting in every corner! A whole selection of candies (m & m’s, marshmallows, etc. in a cute M & M jar set!
This was perfect for late night cravings! In the next corner, I discovered marshmallows and berries on sticks with chocolate sauce, cream & cinnamon powder, ready to dip!
Every detail was thought off – a selection of love poems on one bedside table, a box of 101 romantic ideas to surprise your partner on the other table, there was even a selection of romantic music and movies available to choose from.
Apart from all this, to ensure privacy, you could opt to have breakfast in bed and even sleep in without disturbance. Housekeeping will definitely not come knocking before noon (unless you ask for them of course!).
Every single meal at the Four Seasons Singapore was fabulous! We enjoyed lunch at day one at the hotel – a great selection of salads and mezze, which had us going back for seconds!
What I absolutely loved about the hotel was its location – just a short walk to the famous Orchard Road, while still secluded enough to enjoy some quiet time at the hotel. Situated in the midst of the city, the hotel has four tennis courts, a 24 hour gym, 2 swimming pools as well as a full service spa. Definitely a surprise!
The Four Seasons Singapore will definitely be a hotel to remember – they continued to surprise us! Enter our room after a long day of meetings on day one, to be surprised with the cutest little cookies in the shape of wedding cakes and some yummy chocolates. After an equally long and tiring day two, we were greeted in our room by a ‘make your own Singapore Sling’ setup. Every alcohol required, mixers, garnishes, glassware, shakers, Singapore Sling recipe and even nuts & olives – this was such a fab surprise!
Now on to our favourite part, weddings at the Four Seasons Singapore! Walk up the grand staircase to arrive at the two elegant ballrooms with very spacious foyers.
Apart from these, there are also smaller function rooms on higher levels with unobstructed views of the city as well as a private roof garden. Indian weddings have a few options to choose from for the various events – so reducing the possibility of repeating venues.
Why Four Seasons Singapore is best for your wedding?
The hotel is chic! The Four Seasons group, the world over will ensure you have a chic and stylish wedding.
Four Seasons are famous for the gorgeous floral arrangements.
Their pastry chef put together some yummy creations for us. Their wedding cakes too, we hear are a world apart.
The property is home to 1500 original art pieces.
With a room inventory of 255 guest rooms, this is a comfortable number for most destination weddings. Should you need more rooms, fear not, there are tons of other hotels around.
Every room is equipped with L’Occitane products – definitely kept me happy!
Just a short walk down to Orchard Road, you need not worry about your guests. The shopping will keep them busy during their free time!
The hotel staff (everyone we encountered)went the extra mile to cater to every requirement (and more!). Who doesn’t like to be pampered and surprised, right?
