Bombing My Kitchen and Staying at the Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore

My home kitchen looks like warzone now!
Sorry I haven't been posting much of late. We're finally renovating the kitchen among other things, so things are in a bit of a mess at home, as you can see.

To escape the dust and noise of hacking day, the whole family escaped to nearby Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore - one of the better hotels in our neighbourhood. Might as well make it a little staycation!

They upgraded us to the very swell Business Suite! We really loved the spaciousness of it all and felt at home immediately. It's very well laid out, and manages to be warm and inviting. Hubby commented that this suite rivals many he's seen in 5-star hotels around the world.

Deluxe King Room is more than comfy too
We also got an adjoining Deluxe King room for mom-in-law and helper. It's more than comfy, with nice floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the pool.

The adjoining rooms were fantastic for the family
Having the adjoining rooms was a big plus for the family. The kids could go into either room easily. They were instantly hooked on some NHK children's program too.

Simple yet elegant furnishings in the Business Suite
The Business Suite means business. You have lots of workspace with neatly hidden power outlets and Internet connection jacks. You can work without disturbing whoever is sleeping, as the headboard makes a nice divider.

View from the desk. I love the living area
I like the little touches of contemporary Asian they have in the furnishings. This is the view from the work desk. You can also conveniently keep an eye on the news as you work.

The bathtub is to die for!
The best part of the suite is the bathroom! The standalone bathtub is such a treat! They give you some Epsom salts that colour the water a beautiful blue. Oh yes, the LCD TV means you can have a soak and enjoy your favourite program at the same time!

Bathroom is gorgeous, with separate shower stall too
The bathroom is beautifully roomy and comes with a separate shower stall.

The kids had a blast at the swimming pool
We knew the children would definitely love the pool - there's a small kiddy pool too (see bottom right). The water was very cold but that didn't stop them from having a blast!

Live orchids a nice touch
Service at the hotel was impressive. All of our requests were attended to promptly, and nothing was too minor for them to handle. We enjoyed the hotel so much we extended our stay another day!

I'll be blogging the food we had here too - the Roxy Bar which is their poolside cafe (a nice find!) and the hotel breakfast at Feast@East.

Thanks, Keane, for helping us to make the arrangements!
