Park Regis Singapore review: What the Stay Well Package includes
From now till end of July, you’ll be able to book the wellness-themed Stay Well Package (from S$198++) and enjoy the following:
- Butterfly Pea Welcome Drink: Derived from the leaves of the Clitoria ternatea plant, which is native to Southeast Asia, this is a caffeine-free herbal beverage that’s enriched with potent antioxidants. Besides guarding skin against premature ageing, it also reduces inflammation and alleviates stress. Honey and freshly squeezed lemon juice is added to the drink for a more refreshing and soothing sensation.
- Priority access to #sginsiders trails, held every Saturday morning: This is an easy trek doesn’t just provide you with an energising morning workout, but is also a guided tour around some of the historic landmarks in Singapore.
- Complimentary use of bicycles or e-scooters for 2 hours
- Complimentary use of Handy phone with mobile internet
- Complimentary daily buffet breakfast for up to 2 pax
- Late check-out until 2pm (subject to availability)
For me, the part of the package that I appreciated the most was taking on the #sginsiders trail at Fort Canning Hill. My partner and I were the only locals in the small group that day, and had a good time learning more about Singapore’s history – or perhaps, a bit of a refresher from our history classes back in school – while making new friends within the group.
The trail lasted for about 90 minutes, but it was an easy one that was very manageable while we were able to work up a sweat at the same time.
Although I’m not a foreign tourist, I haven’t really taken such a thorough tour around Fort Canning Hill, and was excited to learn more about Singapore’s founding history. For instance, did you know that the grave of the Malay Sultan who was said to be the last king who ruled Singapore can be found in the park?
This was the most pleasant surprise of the stay. I would imagine foreign tourists finding it useful as an “orientation” to Singapore’s history (and right before most places of interests are opened anyway, so it won’t disrupt their itinerary), while locals on staycations benefiting from a refreshing perspective about our country.
After the energising trek, we headed back to the hotel and was just in time for a sumptuous breakfast before enjoying the rest of our day ahead.
The availability of bicycles and e-scooters was another nice touch that I think make the experience a unique one, because it’s much easier to explore the area surrounding the hotel using these vehicles (and it’s less tiring than being on foot!)
