We chose the Ritz Carlton Singapore for our first stay in Singapore. It was really late when my Singapore Airlines flight landed from Korea. I had pre-arranged transportation from the hotel, but could not find my driver. Good thing, because the trip from the airport to the hotel is only about 20 minutes and I found the Singapore taxi’s to be a great option. I hopped into a cab and off I went to check into the Ritz Carlton Singapore in the early hours of the morning.
Hotel Entrance & Lobby Area
The lobby entrance is impressive. To the left is the buffet area which serves breakfast lunch and dinner. To the right, is the bar and reception area.
The reception area is off to the right when you enter the main entrance of the hotel. It is important to note that this Ritz Carlton is only one of two properties that doesn’t participate in the Ritz Carlton Rewards program. So elite status benefits were not offered. I was glad the breakfast buffet was included in my rate.
The lobby atrium near the bar is bright and open. It’s a great place to relax before or after heading out on the town.
The bar seating area is a great place to catch up with friends and have a nice cocktail or afternoon tea service.
I was given a Deluxe King bedroom for my few night stay. The area next to the elevator gave away that this place was going to be nice.
The room absolutely blew my expectations away. Upon entering the room there was a seating area directly in front of the floor to ceiling windows. The room felt minimalistic with a perfect mix of glitz from the wood trimmings.
The bed was a large king bed with an awesome looking headboard. The controls for the room were located to the the right side of the bed. One can control everything in the room including the curtains from the bed.
The desk area was perfect for working. While my view was of the pool area, another hotel and a distant highway, it gave enough to look at without being distracted.
Just past the desk area was a large bathroom decked out with marble and tile.
The soaking tub looked great, although I didn’t have a chance to try it out.
The seating area was a great space to take calls in the morning. I used this iPhone application to make calls over the wifi and the quality was great. I never once had a dropped call and the best part is the calls were completely free.
The pool is located two levels below the main level. You can either take the elevator or the main stairs located in the lobby.
The entrance to the pool is a dripping water feature. To the left of the water feature is the restaurant and beyond is the pool.
There was plenty of seating by the pool the entire time I was there.
The hotel has some great views of Singapore.
Buffet Breakfast Option
The buffet has a large selection and is high quality. Here are a few pictures of the lighter options. Over the period of a few days, I tried everything including everything from traditional American breakfast to curry. What a fantastic selection.
Overall I had a great experience with the Ritz Carlton Millenia Singapore. It is in a good location and has a great atmosphere. I just wish this hotel would join the Ritz Carlton Rewards loyalty program.
