Staycation at Park Hotel Clarke Quay
HAPPY SUNDAY PEOPLE! Planning for a short getaway with your loved one on Valentine’s Day? Park Hotel Clarke Quay is a good choice for a tropical retreat in the heart of the cosmopolitan city! It offers a sweeping views of the city skyline with a beautiful outdoor pool, cabana style spa and two restaurants offering tempting servings of seafood, local delights and enticing aroma of BBQ by the pool!
This is my room! I love its rich colours and well designed space. I jumped onto the bed immediately after we were done taking photos. It is so comfortable that I don’t want to get up.
The folks from Park Hotel prepared a STAY TAMCHIAK posters specially for me! Oh my gawd, I love it so much, thank you for the lovely surprise. The pillow is so huge and comfortable. Plus got my name and a drumstick there. Every night I am sleeping with it! Hoho!
If you book your staycation from now till 28 February 2014, you can create your personal meme-poster on Park Hotel Group’s Facebook and they will print the personalised meme-poster for you during your stay so that you can bring them home. I told the boyf to hold the poster like a couplet! HAHA! If only he wears red, confirm have the CNY feel!
When I think of staycation, this sentence “PUT THE WORLD ON HOLD” comes to my mind. This is what I created, because I feel staycation has the power to put everything behind, at least for 2 days! We are often so stressed up with our work that we forgot to spend time for ourselves and for our loved one. So I love to staycation very much as it eliminates reminders of time and let me spend more time with my loved one while we unwind on the comfortable bed.
Staycate Plus Package lets you enjoy a complimentary room upgrade! For Park Hotel Clarke Quay, there is complimentary room upgrade from superior to deluxe room, and crystal club superior to crystal club deluxe room.
We have the privilege to use the Crystal Club which has personalized check-in and check-out at the lounge, buffet breakfast served at the club lounge, complimentary Hors d’oeuvres at the lounge, light refreshments and non-alcoholic beverages throughout the day, daily extensive selection of local newspaper, magazines and books, complimentary unlimited broadband, late check out at 3pm etc etc.

We went out for high tea and shopping after nua-ing and came back to the hotel for a romantic weekend BBQ seafood dinner at COCOBOLO under the enchanting night sky. Set against the backdrop of the outdoor pool, green foliage and Cabana-style pavilions, the BBQ dinner feast is available on Fridays and Saturdays, with a repertoire of appetisers, soups, breads, salads and accompanying condiments.
Carnivores will love the sizzling selection of delish meats including Angus Strip Loin Beef with Dijon and Thyme, French Cut Lamb Rack, Spring Chicken marinated with Rosemary, Baby Pork Ribs, Assorted Fourmet Sausages and more. We enjoyed the meats here especially the baby pork ribs. These are tender and the meat falls right off the bone.
Aromatic herbs, spices and seasoning are delicately administered before grilling to retain the original tastes as well as its succulent and juicy textures. If you are craving for seafood, there is grilled fresh prawns marinated with cajun spice, arrow squid marinated with tumeric and chilli, sambal balacan fish fillet etc.
Lamb rack is another favourite of mine! Complement your dining experience with one-for-one specials off wines and beers all night long, live football matches every Saturday and soothing music playing in the background. They also have desserts and fresh fruits to promote a sweet finale to the experience such as creme brulee, apple crumble, sago gula melaka and assorted french pastries.
Weekend BBQ dinner costs $52++ (adult) and $26++ (child). Call 6593 8855 to book.
The next morning, we woke up early to chill out by the pool side. I cannot swim lah but it is definitely nice to sit on one of the benches on a cooling Sunday morning and let time pass by.
Even though we can have our exclusive breakfast at Crystal Club, we chose to visit the all-day dining restaurant Brizo Restaurant & Bar because we wanted a bigger variety of dishes.
Oh by the way, Brizo is offering Valentine’s Day buffet featuring specially-made appetizers, premium cheese, gourmet breads and a live cooking station featuring pan-seared foie gras with madeira wine sauce & caramelised pear. You can also enjoy the freshest catch of the sea including canadian oysters, boston lobsters, tiger prawns, green lip mussels, chilean scallops, cold flower crabs etc.
Plus, you enjoy a complimentary glass of red or white wine while having a main course of your choice – pan fried red garoupa fillet, grilled black angus striploin or oven baked spring chicken! Each couple only costs $168++ which is super worth it. And you can get door gifts including a complimentary stalk of rose, a box of pralines and a bottle of Moscato. Call 6593 8855 to book.
We also went to tour around the hotel and saw the gorgeous park suite which is dressed in a rich palette of burgundy with dark lacquered wood furnishings, illuminated by a spiralling crystal chandelier that cascades from the elevated ceiling. It has a separate, spacious living room with 2 LCD flat screen TVs. Super good for families!
And since we are getting married next year, we also went to take a look at the function rooms. The largest function room overlooks the stunning pool.
Ok one more shot of the lovely pool. I really love it. It feels like the Baalbek in Lebanon! Thank you Park Hotel for the hospitality and special thanks to the friendly restaurant manager who served us during our dinner at CocoBolo!
