There is a lounging area of sorts at the same level as the lap pool and fitness center.




As well as more indoor greenery, and even air-conditioned tennis courts.






We used the dining credits for in-room dining. The in-room dining menu was available in the room. Apart from this menu, in-room dining could also be ordered from the Chinese restaurant Jiang Nan Chun.




The dinner spread.




Fried rice with crab meat, egg white and dried scallops from Jiang Nan Chun, and a side of stem broccoli.




Miso Chicken with Sesame Togarashi, Sweet Potatoes




Snapper Bouillabaisse




Dinner with a city view.




Turndown service was provided on request, and we came back, after a walk around Orchard, to a room which was made up and curtains drawn.




Night view from the room.




The next morning, breakfast was served at One-Ninety Restaurant.

Most of the breakfast items were offered buffet-style, but served to you by servers at the buffet counter.
















Selection of hot and cold dishes from the buffet, along with juice and latte.






Egg dishes and some ala-carte selections can be ordered from the restaurant staff, where we went for the signature Chilli crab omelette, and a Nasi lemak. However, these (except eggs of your choice) were not offered proactively, and you would need to ask.






Garden@One-Ninety, offering both in-doors and alfresco dining and chill-out areas.

Four Seasons is certainly a high quality hotel, with excellent service and product.


To end the staycation, we headed down to nearby Shangri La for dinner at Origin Grill.

Origin Grill is inspired by the origin of flavours, travel adventures and Singapore’s illustrious history of bountiful trade, colonial charm and tropical splendour.

The restaurant showcases fresh, authentic flavours from curated, unique and quality-driven ingredients. Menu selections include line-caught sustainable seafood from Indonesia, and New Zealand, and a bespoke beef selection featuring grass- and grain-fed, pure-, cross- and full-blooded Angus and Wagyu beef from Australia and Japan, as well as snow-aged Wagyu beef from Niigata, Japan.

We had the set menu via a Citibank promotion.




Starting with a variety of bread rolls.




Amuse bouche




French Duck Breast




Duroc Pork Collar




Canadian Scallops




Fremantle Octopus




Atlantic Snapper




Black Onyx Angus Striploin




And ending the excellent dinner with a Hazelnut Cocoa dessert.

Default #15 Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel

#15
Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel
Pool Terrace



Back during the Vesak holiday midweek in May, I had a stay at one of the most iconic hotels in Singapore, the Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel.

Experience moments of brilliance at the iconic Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel. Be it a family staycation, a getaway, a small-scale event or takeaways, we ensure that the well-being of guests remains our top priority and have taken precautionary measures to create a safe and clean environment - attaining the SG Clean Quality Mark by local authorities. Enjoy unrivalled accessibility with our strategic location on the famed Orchard Road and at the doorsteps of Orchard MRT Station; unsurpassed comfort in our guestrooms with carefully-chosen amenities; access to our Lounge - M Club; thoughtful service. Savour a mélange of gourmet offerings, featuring delightful takeaways, Cantonese and Western cuisines as well as beers and wines, or recharge your senses in our outdoor pool and fitness centre. Host successful corporate and social events or weddings in 18,000 square-feet of inspiring spaces, including a newly refurbished Grand Ballroom and 12 refurbished meeting rooms.

I had booked a stay at one of the more unique rooms at the hotel, the Pool Terrace. My package was inclusive of a High Tea, Breakfast and M Club lounge access. Unfortunately, dining-in was halted due to government regulated enhanced Covid measures during my stay, and everything was served in-room.

Arriving at the hotel for check-in, which was very smooth. Occupancy rate was very low even though the next day was a public holiday.






Headed up to the room, which was at the pool level. The famous Tang Plaza tower, which houses most rooms, in view.




The hotel pool was located at the 5th level.




As the name suggests, the pool terrace room was situated just beside the pool.

Experience resort living in the heart of Singapore when you stay in one of our luxurious pool terrace guest rooms. Relax in comfort amid the modern luxury of our Pool Terrace room, enhanced by luxury amenities, refined design elements, and plush furnishings. Rejuvenate after a full day of exploring Singapore in the en suite bathroom of our Pool Terrace room, a refreshing haven with stylish vanities, plush towels, and a luxurious deep soaking tub.




There was an outdoor terrace with lounging area and views to the pool.








Entering the decently spacious 42sqm room, which felt rather cosy.

The bathtub can be separated from the bedroom via an adjustable divider.




Bath amenities are by Thann.




The stay was inclusive of a High Tea, which was originally supposed to be served at the Lobby Lounge. However, due to dining-in restrictions, it was sent to the room.

All hail the widely revered King of Fruits - Mao Shan Wang durian with its bittersweet taste, fleshy meat and creamy texture! Durian lovers are in for a treat as Lobby Lounge presents the best harvest of durians in our High Tea. Think creamy, decadent Durian pastries oozing with the rich flavours of premium Mao Shan Wang, alongside assorted bakery delights. You will not want to miss the Durian Coconut Tart; Durian Pandan Cake with White Chocolate Chantilly; Durian Swiss Roll; Brown Sugar Cup with Speculoos Cream, and more.


High tea set delivered to the room, inclusive of a glass of welcome cold brew tea and an exclusive selection of TWG leaf teas.






Scones, danish and icing donut.




Mini croissants and sandwiches.




Durian puff, durian panna cotta and tarts




Durian swiss roll, durian pandan cake and cupcakes.




After the high tea, spent the afternoon lazing by the pool. The pool was never crowded, and it is a hidden oasis right smack in the action of Orchard Road.






Sunset




Light dinner and cocktails from M Club were also served in-room. During check-in, we were handed a menu to indicate our selection.

Pre-ordered cocktails and drinks delivered to the room.




M Club light dinner selection, which was more than sufficient as a full dinner.






Pool area at night.










Breakfast the next morning was also pre-ordered and advance and served in-room. It was great to be able to enjoy breakfast by the poolside.












The Marriott Tang Plaza Pool Terrace is definitely a unique staycation experience, with a touch of resort feel in the busiest crossroad of Orchard.
