The awesome room stay package includes lots of fun activities for the kids
As a mother of a six-year-old child, I am always thinking of ways to surprise her with fun activities during the school holidays, and create some great childhood memories for her. But for working moms, planning a vacation for the whole family is not easy – there are plane tickets to book, leaves to apply for at the office, and then all the spending on the trip itself. To have a great trip, you would have to start planning maybe half a year in advance. And I have to admit, I am seriously too lazy to do that.
But, resourceful as ever, I found a way to organise some quality family bonding time without having to leave the country. I called up my best gal pal and, together with our two six-year-olds, we went on a little “vacation”…
Our excellent 2 day, 1 night family staycation did not cost as much as you may think; in fact, it’s probably less than a plane ticket to Thailand! We snagged a great deal at PARKROYAL on Beach Road that we definitely recommend. The hotel is offering a brand new Family Weekend Getaway room stay package. From now until 31 December 2019, you can book a room for two adults and two children (with breakfast included) at just S$238++ per night, and that includes Fridays to Sundays with a minimum of one night’s stay.
Included in the package are:
- Complimentary buffet breakfast at the hotel restaurant for two adults and two children below 11 years old
- Complimentary buffet dinner at the hotel restaurant for every child under 12 years old, accompanied by one paying adult
- Complimentary late check-out until 4:00pm
- Complimentary children activities available on Saturdays and Sundays including Wii gaming and children’s circuit
- Complimentary welcome amenities, access to Netflix and children’s tent
- Complimentary use of in-room maxi bar
- Complimentary extra bed
- Exclusive 25% savings on all spa treatments at St. Gregory
- Complimentary Internet access
- Complimentary parking
We couldn’t wait to start our weekend of fun! Upon entering our room, we were greeted by adorable plush toys and kids’ bed sheets:
And snacks and fruits specially prepared for kids:
Seeing the extra effort the hotel put in to make our stay special, our kids were immediately very happy and excited.
The fitness studio that’s located on the fourth floor of the hotel even holds children’s activity circuit courses every Saturday, from 5pm to 6pm, so of course we had to join in!
There are expert instructors to guide the children to exercise together and improve their core strength, coordination, balance and rhythm, even cultivate their sense of teamwork and a hardworking and positive spirit that can help them to beat stress as they grow up. Most importantly, the fitness activities (children’s circuit) are complimentary to join, as part of the special room stay package. While your kiddos are getting a good exercise, the mommies can treat yourselves to a relaxing full-body spa at St. Gregory! Every family that books the Family Weekend Getaway room stay package can enjoy an exclusive 25% off all spa treatments.
Now, the always concerned parents might ask, what will the kids do after they are done with their fitness activities and can’t find their parents? There’s no need to fret; the hotel provides complimentary Wii gaming, temporary tattoos, sand art and popsicles by the Poolside Cafe and Bar for your little ones to play their hearts out. With the attentive hotel staff watching over them, you can put aside your worries and completely indulge in your spa massage!
More fun and games await the kids at PARKROYAL on Beach Road’s pool! Popular among guests, the hotel pool boasts an incredible view of the Singapore Flyer and the Marina Bay Sands against a beautiful blue sky. Any photo you take of the view could belong on a postcard.
And the swimming pool for kids is a wonderful safe place for our children to play freely.
At this point, we have to also highlight the hotel’s buffet dinner. At the restaurant Ginger, we were treated to a whole smorgasbord of fresh local produce, Western food, Chinese food, Indian food, seafood, steak, snacks, desserts… there’s so much to choose from, more than you could think of, and everything tastes amazing.
If you are salivating just reading all that, good news – if you book the Family Weekend Getaway room stay package, all you need is one adult who’s paying, and every child under 12 years old who accompanies them can enjoy a complimentary buffet dinner! Basically, if your family has two adults and two children, you only need to pay for the two adults to enjoy a meal for the whole family! After they have their satisfying meal, the kids are also invited to decorate their own cupcake and little bear biscuits. With one fun activity after another, your kids will have a blast!
Both us grown-ups and our kids had a delightful family staycation that we will always remember. And you can have such an experience with your family too! Book your perfect weekend getaway at PARKROYAL on Beach Road here, and don’t forget to quote “WEEKEND” to enjoy guaranteed early check in at 1pm!
