My family had been going on a few staycations lately to unwind and we recently discovered one of the best staycation deals in Singapore at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway, smack in the heart of the Orchard shopping belt.

From now till end February 2016, guests get to indulge in a ’26-hour staycation’ with Hotel Jen Orchardgateway Singapore. Gone are the rules of checking in at 2pm and checking out at 12pm.

This special Weekends with 26 Hours A Day room package allow guests to check out 26 hours after whatever time you check in so you can maximise your weekend with just a single night booking.

From just S$200 per room, per night, guests may stay in one of the 499 rooms in the property. We stayed at the Panorama Room which offered a really breathtaking panoramic view of Orchard Road:

It was raining in them morning during our stay there, but I still caught glimpses of sunrise from our room. It felt really tranquil to be woken up by the first few rays of the morning sun, beaming into the room, with a full view of the city from our bed.

The room was well decorated in soft earth-tone colours for a cosy ambience, with an abundance of sunlight through the liberal use of full-length windows.

A stay at the hotel would not be complete without experiencing the sensational 47-metre infinity rooftop. Be sure to take a dip in the heated infinity pool with jacuzzi features:

For dining, there are lots of options available at the interconnected shopping malls. We opted for a buffet dinner at [email protected], the in-house hotel restaurant in Hotel Jen Orchardgateway which offers both a la carte and buffet-style options all-day:

  • Weekday Lunch Semi Buffet from 12pm to 2.30pm
  • Weekend and Public Holiday Singapore Brunch from 12.30pm to 3pm

  • Friday, Saturday and Eve of Public Holiday Seafood Buffet from 6.30pm to 10pm
  • A-La-Carte menu will also be available from 6.30am to 11pm daily

We were quite happy with the wide international selection. Asher and I enjoyed the sashimi and seafood very much, with Asher feasting on slice after slice of sashimi while I went for the crabs and lobsters:

The experience looks amazing right?

This was definitely one of the best staycations we enjoyed this year. With 26 hours from the time we checked in, we didn’t had to rush ourselves checking in and checking out at the stipulated time dictated by the hotel management. Currently, Hotel Jen Orchardgateway is the only hotel with such an arrangement and it is perfect for staycations.
