Hello darlings! Hope all’s well with you all! (: I have been wanting to do up a post on Village Hotel Changi by Far East Hospitality for weeks, and finally decided not to procrastinate any longer! I promise that this post will not bore you! But it will help you to make that final push for hotel booking if you are looking for one!
Before I made my selection on Village Hotel Changi, my perception was that this hotel is situated at a really ulu area in the East side of Singapore. It will take a 15 minutes short drive from Changi International Airport to reach the hotel, and to be honest, I was a little hesitant because of the inconvenience.
But just thinking about the following makes me get oh-so-excited!
– An exclusive local getaway from my hectic work life, without breaking my bank account
– Spacious and Ultra Clean Hotel room
– Top-notch facilities (Infinity swimming pool and hot jacuzzi tub, fitness room)
– Exclusive access to Club lounge (6pm-8pm) for members staying in Club and Suite Rooms
– Buffet Breakfast location of my choice (Saltwater Cafe or Exclusive Club Lounge)
– Early check-ins or Late checkouts (I chose the latter)
– Village Hotel Changi is only a 5-minutes walk from shops (Choke Full of Beans cafe is just opposite the hotel at Changi Village)
– Short walk to Changi Beach for a breath of fresh air
Alright, let me get down to the review!
Here is the big frontal view of the hotel before I entered the lobby.
The hotel lobby is huge and very clean! The check-in process was very swift, it took less than 5 minutes? They even provide a free 1 hour bicycle rental for hotel guests! Talk about the extra benefits when booking with Far East Hospitality!
As an avid fitness lover, I headed straight to the hotel’s fitness centre! Interestingly, the fitness centre packs quite an extensive punch – a good enough number of machines for a full body workout! I was impressed with the clean and peaceful gym environment. The machines are generally well maintained. Good for those who never want to miss a gym session during their stay in the hotel.
After the gym tour, I went up to the Club Room which I’ve chosen. You know how some hotels can display such grand and inviting photos of their hotel rooms online, and yet it’s a totally different thing in reality. But Low and Behold! I was pleasantly greeted with a luxe and spacious room when I opened the room door! No discrepancies between the online photos of the room and the real thing. The ambience was really cosy, and I really adore the room layout. Not forgetting the huge King size bed which made me wanna laze in bed all day and not venture out the room for other activities within the hotel premise. :p
Looks amazing right? Many a times, our impression of a particular hotel begins with the hotel room and the facilities itself. For Village Hotel Changi, it is definitely not your run out of the mill hotel. The hotel room is impeccably clean and neat, and more importantly, quiet! I was able to have a really good rest because of the solitude the hotel offers. Great for tourists and couples staycation, I would say! 😀
Next up, the hotel’s signature Infinity Pool! 2 different mode for your viewing pleasure. Night time was too cold for me to take a dip. So I ended up going in the day time to get some nice and even tan. Beautiful outdoor pool I would say. It even feature a nice little jacuzzi tub at the corner so that you can have a nice body massage. Pure relaxation at its best. 😀
And yes, not forgetting the Club Lounge, which are only exclusive to the Club Room and Suite Room guests. The lounge offers free flow of soft drink beverages and delectable Canapé during 6pm to 8pm. As a kiasu Singaporean, I took full advantage of this benefit, and stuffed myself with the Canapé selection for the full 2 hours in the lounge. 😀
For the Club room and Suite Room guests, you have an option to have your buffet breakfast either at Saltwater Cafe, or at the exclusive Club Lounge. I chose the latter as I wanted a more private meal experience. And I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of breakfast choices over at the lounge. 1 of the must-try cafes over at the hotel!
My 2D1N stay at the hotel was nothing short of amazing. I have nothing but only praises for the hotel – the room, the facilities, the service level of the hotel staff, the cleanliness of the hotel room, to the quality of food served at the club lounge.
Food quality: 4.5/5
Hotel Facilities: 4.5/5
Service Level: 5/5
Do place Village Hotel Changi as one of your top hotels selection for your next staycation! You will be missing out if you have not visited the hotel at least once if you’re a Singaporean! (:
Till the next post, darlings!
