The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore

I went for a short R n R trip to Singapore in August and stayed at The Ritz-Carlton Millenia, Singapore.  I got an irresistible deal for a 2 nights stay in the Deluxe Room.

The Hotel & Location

The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore is located in the heart of Marina Bay with other luxury hotels such as Marina Bay Sands, Marina Mandarin and Pan Pacific as neighbours.  The hotel is just a short walk from the Promenade Station on the MRT Circle Line which makes is really easy to get around to the city state’s major attractions.

Guests are greeted warmly at the door.  I also love the light-filled foyer which gives the hotel an airy and welcoming feel.  In fact the hotel is basked in natural light with its glass ceiling and floor to ceiling glass panels.

4,200 pieces of art collection from well-known artists such as Dale Chihuly, Andy Warhol and Frank Stella are positioned throughout the hotel to be seen by guests and visitors.

Cornucopia, one of the art pieces created by Frank Stella, hangs from the ceiling of the lobby

This piece of art is part of the Moby Dick series on display on the ground level

The Facilities

The hotel has 4 restaurants to cater to guests – The Summer Pavilion specialising in Cantonese cuisine, Greenhouse for all day dining, Shiraishi Japanese restaurant and Chihuly Lounge for afternoon tea and live music.  I didn’t dine in any as I was having a different type of food discovery, which I will share soon.

The Chihuly Lounge, named after Dale Chihuly. A piece of his work, ‘Sunrise’ is hung over the lounge

For health conscious guests, the 25-meter outdoor pool or the well-equipped gym is a great way to start the day.  Guests can also choose to pamper themselves at the hotel spa.

The Room

At 50sqm, the room was definitely spacious.  Mirrors added to the perception of space in the room.  The room comes with a King-size bed, a walk-in wardrobe, a coffee table & settee, wall mounted 46-inch flat screen TV.  However the TV is best viewed from the settee, not from the bed.

The spacious Deluxe Room

The large windows give guests an unobstructed and panoramic view of the city’s skyline.  Our room faces the city and the F1 track.  No wonder this hotel is fully booked out during the F1 Singapore Grand Prix!

For business travellers or corporate guests, complimentary wired and wireless internet services are available.  In addition, this expansive working desk was filled with power plugs all nicely tucked away when they are not in use.  It also comes with an iPod docking station.

The luxurious full marble bathroom takes up about 1/3 of the room size.  It was well-stocked with toiletries, fluffy towels and His and Her bath robes.  There is a separate shower with its good pressure rainforest shower head as well as toilet area.

What I love most about the bathroom is this signature Ritz-Carlton’s octagonal window with an amazing view while one is soaking in the bath tub.

I was also pleasantly surprised to find chocolates on the bedside when we came back from dinner in the evening – what a lovely touch :).

All in all, I really enjoyed my stay at this phenomenal hotel.  Apart from the awesome room and facilities, the service was excellent too.
