Facing the South China Sea, the view from the hotel is really quite spectacular. For brief moments, I forgot I was in Singapore.
I love their swimming pool! It’s only 1.2m deep, so I don’t have to worry much about going into the deep end unknowingly while playing with the kids. The pool is quite large and didn’t seem too squeezy even when there was quite a number of adults and their children around.
There is also a children’s pool with water slides and a splash pad but we didn’t use them as our kids are too young for the slides and Thaddeus doesn’t like water gushing down onto his head. That is also why we gave Port of Lost Wonder a miss this time.
raring to go for a swim after waking up
Thaddeus loves going out to the balcony to look at the pool, the scenery and go “wah!” every now and then. Too cute, this fella.
someone had a good night of sleep
The husb and I LOVE the bed. It could accommodate all four of us comfortably and the husb’s feet need not be left dangling because the bed was HUGE.
Even Teanne had a good time sleeping on it – she gave us a 6-hour stretch!!!
My other favourite part of the hotel stay – the breakfast! The buffet breakfast spread at Silver Shell is amazing. The husb and I are a lil’ bummed that we could not try everything due to kids’ constraints.
I was most impressed with the buffet line for children. The height of the buffet table is much lower so that the kids can take the food themselves. How very thoughtful! There are milk of different flavours, milo, fruits, biscuits and yoghurt for them.
The peacocks came to our table when Thaddeus started making a mess out of his food and dropping food onto the floor. Thankfully, they are not like strays who will linger around to wait for more.
We brought the kids out to the beach for a walk. Another first for Teanne as we led her to discover sand.
That was pretty much what we did at the beach because Thaddeus decided that he didn’t like the sand much and wanted to go to the pool instead.
I was amazed that we still had time before checking out after we were done with the swim, kids’ baths and packing.
Thaddeus took the opportunity to lounge at the balcony and his Daddy couldn’t resist joining him. When we asked if he wanted to go home, he shook his head.
Not like he had a choice though! But we had a great time and totally loving the idea of staycations for the kids now.
