I am not sure about others but yes for us “Staycation” was relatively a new term and vacation means flying to another place away from the country you live in. Whenever we plan about going on holidays especially with small kids, there are many things on our mind from passport, visa, packing and much more.
This time, we decided for a short and sweet break without these hassles ……
Our 1st Staycation at Village Hotel Changi to celebrate Aayan’s birthday over the weekend. It was more of Play & Stay package which you can find on their website under the deals.
Until now, we have not yet explored this part of Singapore and it has a different feel- something similar to Kampong kind. As it is totally away from the hustle-bustle of the city life, you will find it very relaxing.Just 10 minutes drive and we were at our destination. A quick view of Hotel lobby.
We stayed in their Junior suite which was good enough for a family with small kids though we have to ask for an extra bed as King size bed is not enough to 4 people to sleep.
The room was well equipped with a Television, walking wardrobe, locker, fridge, Iron and iron board, normally have not seen at least an iron anywhere.
- Room Aircon was not very effective
- Mini- Fridge was empty
I am always very much interested to see bathroom first and it should be clean. Bathroom size was quite decent with all toiletries, separate rain shower, and a bathtub; there is a see-through glass window next to the bath tub which has got blinds to cover.
All Deluxe rooms, Club rooms, and Suites are fitted with a handy travel companion for you to stay connected. Enjoy unlimited local and international calls to selected countries, unlimited local mobile Internet, an online city guide and exclusive privileges.
Executive Club Lounge at Level 6
Do check at the reception whether you have got Executive Club privileges or you can upgrade to enjoy the executive club privilege which includes light refreshments and non-alcoholic beverages throughout the day and cocktails/snack in the evening (6-8pm). You can actually relax and enjoy your drinks or can surf on the computers inside the lounge.
Since kids under 13 years are not allowed to sit inside the lounge, so everytime we used to grab a tea/coffee or fruit for the kids we sat near the koi pond on the same level. You can feed fishes at Koi pond too.
You will find that Hotel has got 2 pools on different levels – Infinity Pool at Level 8 and Creek Pool at Level 1
Infinity Pool – Level 8
Infinity Pool has got a raised bar in the corner so while swimming, kids can sit inside as well.
Creek Pool is located at ground level outside the Saltwater cafe and looks beautiful in the night but kids don’t want to use this one. We too find infinity pool has more privacy than this pool as you need to cross the restaurant while going back to your room.
Breakfast Buffet Menu
There is also a hot food vending machine with a display menu to choose from the screen.
Hotel location is quite convenient and you can even explore the surrounding areas – Changi Beach. Changi Ferry terminal, Changi hawker centre, Playground.
