Parkroyal on Pickering: The Hotel

Hello everyone and welcome to my crib LOL

Here are pictures of where we stayed while in Singapore.

Parkroyal on Pickering, newly opened in January 2013, is located right between Clarke Quay and Chinatown, making it highly accessible to the busiest parts of Singapore. It's prime location makes it a favourite among business travelers.

Overlooking the grassy field of Hong Lim Park (Singapore's only open public speaking venue for its citizens), the hotel is most known for its unique paddy terrace architecture. Inspired by the tiered paddy terraces of Bali, the grey-and-black ombre staggered ceilings and green-filled structure of the building commands the attention of everyone walking in the area. For srs.

The following pictures will show you just how much this hotel lives up to the "hotel in a garden" concept. Interesting fact: for every square meter of the hotel, there are two more square meters of greenery! (The hotel, like Singapore, is very big on the green movement. Recycling rainwater, setting the thermostat at 20 degrees, etc)

The hotel has a glass-walled fitness centre overlooking an outdoor infinity pool, which overlooks the said Hong Lim Park. Located halfway of the building (on the 5th floor), it's a gorgeous, airy spot for some rest and recreation. Cool beans, man. Interspersed along the length of the pool are birdcage cabanas, big enough to fit 10 grown people. (Loads of people asked me what I was sitting on :P)

What I wore that day: the Singapore sandals + Mango maxi dress

Alrighty, that's all for this post! If you're into hotels as much as I am, look out for the post on the room and breakfast buffet. Mmmm bacon.
