 6 Oct 2021

 

Given Singapore’s close proximity to the equator, the enviable tropical climate all year round comes with its fair share of rainy days. During the monsoon season, planning a date outdoors is nearly impossible.

On average, rain occurs 167 days of the year in Singapore, producing approximately 95 inches of rainfall. Despite the temperamental nature of the weather, having fun is not a complete washout. When the skies turn grey, you can still find an abundance of fantastic indoor activities to see and do together as a couple.

 

Deluxe Room

 

Stay in luxury

If you want to impress your significant other with an unforgettable gesture, there's nothing quite like whisking them away for a staycation at the Marina Bay Sands. From the moment you check-in, it's celebrity status all the way, and those VIP vibes only continue to grow as you make your way to your suite. Each room is immaculately detailed with elegant furnishings and striking views. The only clouds you'll care about are the soft pillowy ones resting on the crisp, white sheets of the large bed.

Suppose you and your loved one manage to pull yourselves away from the comforts of your royal refuge. In that case, there are numerous other facilities for both of you to explore during your stay, including The Shoppes. As a hotel guest, you enjoy access to the Banyan Tree Fitness Club, located on the 55th floor of the hotel. Take advantage of fully equipped, state-of-the-art gym facilities while soaking in inspiring city views. Once you’re done with your workout, soothe tired muscles at the hot pool or unwind with a steam in the sauna.

TWG Tea Boutique

 

TWG Tea Salon & Boutique

There's something classically romantic about having tea for two; the quaint design of China teacups, exquisite patisseries, perfectly baked scones, and intricately cut sandwiches. These elements come together within the intimate ambiance of the TWG Tea Salon & Boutique. Three sophisticated menus offer a plethora of bites to accompany your delicious brews. TWG Tea Salon & Boutique boasts a vast collection of over 800 single-harvest teas and exclusive blends from around the world, so you're sure to find the perfect pour.

The Parisian Tea Set (S$72++), an assortment of finger sandwiches, along with your choice of croques, muffins, scones, or patisseries, is an ideal option for two. Or take a break from traditional high tea sets and opt for the Roasted Barramundi and Red Curry (S$28++) made with hearty coconut milk and tomato base curry. Or try the Honey Glazed Chicken Salad (S$26++) with julienned carrots and cherry tomatoes tossed in a Tibetan secret tea infused vinaigrette.

TWG Tea Salon & Boutique is located at B2-65, The Shoppes.

 

Mott 32

 

Mott 32 Singapore

When East met West on New York’s 32 Mott Street in 1891, this led to the award-winning restaurant Mott 32; the idea of fusion and culture continues with their expressive menus. The star chefs use innovative cooking techniques and time-honoured recipes to create delightful food richly flavoured with a high degree of Asian authenticity. You’ll find Apple Wood Roasted 42 Days Peking Duck (S$108++) and South Australian Scallop, Prawn, Hot & Sour Shanghainese Soup Dumplings (S$10++) on the menu for a truly unique culinary experience.

Of course, traditional favourites such as noodles and rice are never far away. The Signature Lobster Fried Rice with King Oyster Mushrooms and Edamame (S$80++), and the Crispy Egg Noodles with Bamboo Pith, Mushrooms, and Green Vegetables (S$32++) make comforting options if you’re looking for something a little closer to home.

 

Mott 32

 

When you’ve found something you like, consider adding one of Mott 32’s signature cocktails. The Nashi ($24++) – a potent combination of pear sake, vodka, Thai basil, and lemon – is the handcrafted house special that will pleasantly beguile your tastebuds with its aromatic and tangy citrus notes. If the occasion requires something with a bolder personality, try the Hong Kong Iced Tea (S$24++), a curious mixture of tequila, Lillet Blanc, blackcurrant, and jasmine tea, sprinkled with basil seeds throughout.

Mott 32 Singapore is located at B1-42-44, The Shoppes.
