In the midst of our fast-paced lives in Singapore, finding ways to rest and rejuvenate has become increasingly important, even if we are not traveling out of the country.
Recognising this need, The Ascott Limited launched Rest & Recharge @ Citadines, a wellness staycation package designed to provide guests with a comprehensive and revitalising experience.
With a range of carefully curated activities at two of its Citadines properties, this staycation package aims to elevate the concept of restfulness and offer a much-needed escape from the daily grind.
The Rest & Recharge @ Citadines wellness staycation package is available at two properties: Citadines Connect Rochester Singapore and Citadines Rochor Singapore. This 3-day, 2-night weekend retreat offers a carefully crafted selection of restful activities, exclusively available for booking by Ascott Star Rewards (ASR) members.
From 2 June to 9 July, guests can experience these packages starting from $485 nett for two guests. A pretty good deal, considering that it is inclusive of wellness activities. We were invited to review the staycation package at Citadines Rocher Singapore and will be sharing more about our experience.

Nestled in the culturally vibrant Little India, Citadines Rochor Singapore offers the perfect backdrop for the A Mindful Mixology Weekender package.
