Not sure where to go for your next staycaytion in Singapore? We gotchu, sis. We checked out Oakwood Premier OUE Singapore, which used to be a luxury service apartment property, but is now opening its doors to short-term stays as well. Here’s what we liked about it.
We checked into the One-Bedroom Premier Apartment, which comes with a kitchenette, living room, bedroom and an en suite bathroom.
From my room (and the bathroom too), I got a pretty nice view of the Marina Bay and Tanjong Pagar Terminal area. But don’t worry, the windows are fully tinted for privacy.
The room also has two large screen TVs (one in the bedroom and one in the living area) and a Bluetooth sound system, which is perfect if you just want to take some time out for yourselves, enjoy the room, and chill out with good music or a binge session of Game of Thrones.
I also liked that the bedroom is separate from the living area. When I ordered food from room service and got too lazy to clean up after myself, it was quite convenient to be able to just put all the dishes aside in the sink—and then it’s out of sight and out of mind for the rest of my stay.
Despite being in the CBD and surrounded by other buildings, the outdoor infinity pool provides a nice spot for you to catch the sunset. Want an Instagram moment? We hear that you can request for Insta-worthy floats at no additional charge.
Don’t want to swim? You can still enjoy the pool. There’s an area where there are day beds and a shallow bay for you to dip your feet in. You can also bring drinks from The Bar (yup, that’s the name of the in-house bar!) out to the poolside—it’s quite nice to do this in the evening.
The hotel has an in-house restaurant called SE7ENTH, which serves up some pretty hearty fare. We liked the Wagyu beef burger with pan-friend foie gras, $36, which was delightfully indulgent. Also, if you’re having drinks, it’s a good idea to pair it with the fried chicken drumlets with truffle maple. The combination of sweet and salty with a bite of crunch just hits all the right spots once you’ve had a few drinks in you.
