Tree Howf Staycation, Craighead Farm, Dunblane

All you staycationers out there, take note — I’m lucky to have found another spot for glamping in Scotland, and it's possibly my most favourite of all time! The Tree Howf, located in the humble Craighead Farm near Dunblane, Perthshire, is a gorgeous timber house built around the branches of an existing tree. Settled atop a hill on the farm, step inside for a 360º panoramic view of the beautiful Ochil Hills of Stirling. Plus, you'll meet some of the cutest animals — think donk

Hyatt House Staycation, Mont Kiara

It’s been ages since we had some time to do a staycation so when Hyatt House Mont Kiara invited us for a night’s stay at their property, we were very excited. It was two days before Christmas and the vibes all around the Arcoris neighbourhood was buzzing with festive cheer. ‘‘Twas the perfect time for a staycation! Living just a stone’s throw away from Mont Kiara, I’ve seen the area develop over the years but one of the most beautiful developments in the area has to be Hyatt

Hotel Jen Tanglin Introduces Relay Robot, JENA!

In November, Hotel Jen Singapore marked a new milestone as the first international hotel brand to use autonomous relay robots in Asia. Both Hotel Jen at Orchardgateway and Hotel Jen Tanglin welcomed JENO and JENA respectively. JENO is a lovely shade of turquoise, while JENA sports a very dainty pink, both the brand colours of Hotel Jen. JENO seems to be wearing a jacket and tie, while JENA is decked out in a pretty pink scarf. We got to personally experience the relay robot s

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

Wanderlust Hotel, Singapore

I don't know about you, but I like to pamper myself every once in a while with a nice staycation. This time, I was just done with my busy period at work and decided that a much deserved stay away from home was in order. I ended up booking a Mono Deluxe room ($450++ per night) over at Wanderlust hotel in Little India area. I stepped in the lobby and was greeted with mismatched furniture at the waiting lounge area and a foosball table for people to play while waiting to check i

The Replacement Lodge + Kitchen: The Ultimate #InstagramGoals Bed & Breakfast

You wouldn't instantly think of JB as a staycation destination... but if you're living in Singapore, JB is just across the causeway and really, quite convenient to access. And if you're entering Malaysia through the Causeway Link and other public buses, you get out at the CIQ building. You don't need to rent a car to get around the hottest spots in JB and now with Grab and Uber, you won't need to fight with the local taxi touts trying to make a quick buck off you. But if y

The Replacement Lodge + Kitchen: Staycation in JB

JB is a great staycation destination for Singaporeans and as such, even though we drove down from KL, we decided to check out The Replacement Lodge and Kitchen so we could share its beauty with our Singaporean readers. From the outside, the shophouse looks pretty unassuming, with The Replacement Kitchen downstairs serving really great food for both brunch and dinner. As you enter through the door just next to the cafe to climb up the stairs, you know you're in for a treat.

Aman Rimba, Janda Baik: a taste of the local kampung fare

Going away to a secluded private estate in the kampung area of Janda Baik is one thing... Dining in style while still enjoying the best our local Malay fare has to offer is another. Aman Rimba offers the perfect escape from the city and affords you a fully immersive kampung experience (with some frills!). Staying at Aman Rimba is a wonderful experience, one that we go into detail here. But having all meals catered to your group in this private estate means you don't have to w

Staycation near KL: Aman Rimba, Janda Baik

Turning 30 is quite a big deal, it marks a milestone in one's life. That is why for our head of marketing, Tim Danker's 30th birthday, we decided to do it at Aman Rimba, about just under an hour's drive out from Kuala Lumpur. It happened to be my birthday the week after, too. So we made it a joint birthday staycation (that was not too far from KL so all our friends could join too!). When I first heard about Aman Rimba, having been to Janda Baik before, I expected it to be sty

Crockford's Suite, Genting Highlands

If you're looking to try out a little #richkidsofinstagram experience close to home, Genting Highlands' Crockfords Suite is your answer. It's not lined with gold bathtubs or diamond-encrusted bathrobes (yet!), but you will find yourself in Genting's most exclusive hotel experience possible. It's so exclusive, you can't even book the room with just money. This is the ultimate baller pad that you would want to impress the ladies/gents with. We started off our very swanky stayca
