Tablescape Restaurant & Bar, Grand Park City Hotel

Tablescape Restaurant & Bar is the perfect date night spot with your special someone. Serving a European menu inspired by classical cuisine and helmed by new Executive Chef Armando Aristarco, I was looking forward to an excellent dining experience I hear many have enjoyed. The restaurant is located inside the five star Grand Park City Hotel, in what was a century-old conservation shophouse renewed with contemporary interiors and modern furnishings — the inspiration behind the

Dash Box Hotel, Cyberjaya

Once in a while, we all need an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. We all need a getaway from work. A place to relax and unwind, putting the worry and stress behind you. Dash Box Hotel in Cyberjaya did just that. I had the pleasure of staying in Dash Box's dash Deluxe room with my mother for a short getaway. The room was spacious and comfortable. It had a large super king size bed, with a balcony overlooking the gorgeous pool. Not to mention, the toilet was spacio

Marriott Marquis, Queen’s Park Bangkok

Marriott Marquis isn’t my first experience staying at one of the Marriott properties. The first time I experienced the true hospitality of Marriott was at Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa. Marrying the humble hospitality of Thais and the standard of service at Marriott, any stay at a Marriott in Thailand is promising. Our recent stay at Marriott Marquis at Queen’s Park Bangkok was no different. From start to end, our experience was one steeped in luxury and tranquility. Upon arr

W Hotel, Bangkok

Recently, we had the privilege of staying at W Bangkok. It was my first time stepping foot into any W properties around the world. Its reputation precedes it and I was eager to experience the hype. Its tagline is '5 Star Urban Playground' and it really felt like we had entered a playground built for adults. It did stir up feelings of excitement and high energy. It could have been from the loud music playing in the compound, but we were dancing our way into the hotel as soon a

Greenhost Boutique Hotel, Yogyakarta

Nowadays, when we search for hotels to stay in, while price does play a small part of our criteria, we also look at many other aspects like location, accessibility, Instagram-worthiness and to a certain extent, sustainability. Hotels have long been laden with wastage. But this is something Greenhost Boutique Hotel hopes to change. It hopes to lessen its waste and encourage healthy, sustainable practices through its establishment. From what we’ve seen so far, it has. The first

Jambuluwuk Malioboro, Yogyakarta

One of our very last stops in Yogyakarta was the famous shopping street, Malioboro. No trip to Yogyakarta is complete without at least stepping foot once onto the bustling, chaotic street where vendors peddle their mass produced goods with a smile. I love shopping in Indonesia because the people are much friendlier to deal with than the locals back home. Before our last night in Yogyakarta, we had been shying away from this district, often finding ourselves off the beaten pat

Plataran Heritage Borobudur Hotel: The Perfect Honeymoon Hotel

When you decide to marry the person you're going to spend the rest of your life with, it's a huge decision. One that shouldn't be taken lightly. It's also one that comes with a lot of happiness and certainty. With equal happiness and certainty, you sign the papers and sail off into the sunset. Or fly off to your honeymoon. For me, things were a little less conventional. I've never been a very conventional person to begin with - I always danced to my own tune. My marriage seem

Dusun Jogja Village Inn, Yogyakarta

When I was doing research on beautiful hotels in Yogyakarta, Dusun Jogja Village Inn was one of the top results. We were looking for a place that was close to the action but still quiet enough that we could enjoy a romantic getaway. In fact, I’d start off by saying this is a great hotel for couples to enjoy a retreat. One of my favourite features here at Dusun Jogja Village Inn is definitely the pool. If it’s your first time coming to Yogyakarta, you’ll know that it’s incredi

Sneak Peek into Marina Bay Sands' Presidential Suite

We were recently at Marina Bay Sands for the Epicurean Market 2017. Since we were at one of the most highly sought after hotels in Singapore, and at one of the most highly anticipated food events of the year, we just had to take lots of pictures and take a tour around the hotel. We were also lucky enough to be made privy to a private tour of the Presidential Suite at Marina Bay Sands. We were treated to stunning views of the bay area as well as Singapore's glittering CBD skyl

Tubotel Langkawi: A destination hotel worth travelling to

I believe I have only ever been to Langkawi three times in my life. Once as a teen with my family, once a couple years back over the Raya holidays with some close friends and the most recent trip with my fiance and best friend. Each time was a vastly different experience. As a teen, I wanted to try alcohol and my mother indulged me the privilege of underage drinking just to void the novelty. Going with friends, we wanted to have a good time and we spent most of our money o

NDP at JW Marriott South Beach Hotel, Singapore

We are just weeks away from Singapore's National Day on 9 August!

Gemersik Selera @The Mill Cafe, Grand Millennium Hotel KL

Living in the tropics of Southeast Asia, we have the privilege of indulging in a wide range of Malay traditional foods especially during the month of Ramadan. The fasting month is here which is the holy month observed by Muslims. This is a great time for families and friends to get together to "buka puasa" (break-fast) after fasting for the whole day. We entered into a vast dining room with aromas of different flavours floating in the air. The servers were clothed in traditio

MTree Hotel, Puchong

As far as hotels go... what would you consider a good hotel? One that has decent business facilities? Or an infinity pool? Or good food? Depending on your needs as a traveller, you might want all three or maybe even more. For business travellers, functionality and practicality take precedence over other factors. When we went to M Hotel for our staycation, we went as a group of friends hoping to enjoy our public holiday in a nice hotel and that's exactly what we did. We arrive

Lai Ching Yuen, Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur

You can't help but to be blown away by the sheer opulence of Grand Millennium Hotel as you step into their lobby. With the cascading chandelier, gigantic display of fresh flowers, the dark marble flooring and the gold water feature, you will be wowed. The food at its Chinese restaurant Lai Ching Yuen is no exception to its whole grandeur. The restaurant is decorated in a glamorous black and red oriental theme, and is one of the nicest Chinese restaurants I had the honour of p

Royal Plaza on Scotts, Singapore

Royal Plaza on Scotts is one of the favourite hotels for Malaysians and Bruneians to visit when they are in Singapore for obvious reasons. It is owned by the Sultan of Brunei and is an alcohol-free, pork-free, smoke-free hotel with a halal-certified restaurant. This makes it easy for Muslim visitors to the country because there are not very many halal places around. It is also conveniently located along Orchard Road, right next to T Galleria DFS for duty free, guilt-free shop
