Day Tour on Saturday – Orchard Parade Hotel, Quincy, The Elizabeth Hotel and Oasia.
The overseas bloggers I am hosting are staying in Orchard Parade Hotel and on the same day before Singapore Blog Awards 2012, we were invited for a hotel tour in the morning. I was excited for we are going to cover 4 different hotels in Orchard; Orchard Parade, Quincy, Elizabeth Hotel. After a long night at Landmark Village Hotel meeting up with all the overseas and local bloggers, I was feeling sleepy as we have to gather at 8.30am this morning. I was feeling happy the moment I saw some familiar faces in the lobby and was even happier when the staff from Orchard Parade Hotel offered beverages!!! The simple gesture that offers so much warm and keeps everyone smiling all day!
Take a tour with me around the hotel where we visit the lovely guestrooms, the relaxing and pampering executive lounge, the big pool with awesome chilling seating area.

Our last and final hotel tour at Oasia Hotel where we had our lunch buffet before heading over to the Singapore Flyer where the Singapore Blog Awards 2012 was held. I couldn’t take my eyes off the huge wooden walls when I 1ststep into Oasia. There is a strong musky sandalwood smell in the lift and it was only then we were told that you can personalised your preferred scent in your own hotel room!! How cool is that?? The wooden structure and design of the hotel room shouts Zen yet chic. I love exploring all the “hidden surprises” in the rooms! There is even an expresso machine hidden inside “the wall”!! We went to the executive floor where executive guests can enjoy an exclusive retreat!
