With busy schedules and school programmes, planning a holiday with the family isn’t easy. So enjoy a staycation instead. Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore offers a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet is close enough to provide the conveniences of shopping and visiting nearby attractions.
Rooms with a connection
A single room isn’t enough to cater to the whole family. As part of the Family Value Staycation, book a hotel room and get the adjacent room at 50 percent off. You can access both rooms via a connecting door, ideal for getting the grandparents to look after your kids while you’re on a date night.
Once you’ve checked in, take the family for a splashing good time at the pool. Then head to the garden, where fruits such as bananas, pomegranates and passion fruit are grown for use in Hotel Jen Tanglin’s restaurant and bar.
In the morning, gather the brood for a complimentary breakfast at J65. Choose from local and international breakfast dishes such as nasi lemak, cereal and fresh fruit – there’s even an egg station serving up omelettes á la minute.
Explore the neighbourhood
Let your children explore the great outdoors at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which is a hop and skip away from the hotel. Venture deeper to the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden, where the kids can run riot exploring the treehouse, suspension bridge and the water play areas.
During your stay, enjoy free parking at Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore, which connects to Tanglin Mall and its wealth of cafés and restaurants. Alternatively, a free shuttle bus will take you from the hotel to Orchard Road – all the better for you to explore the city before heading back for the night.
Go on a date night
Spend some quality time with your partner by making Rumpoles Bar your first stop – here, munch on fried chicken wings (they’re free!) and catch up over drinks. The Deal-for-Two promotion gets you a second tipple at 50 percent off.
After a cocktail or three, spoil your other half at the Festival of Crab at Ah Hoi’s Kitchen. Indulge in Sri Lankan crabs cooked in ten styles, such as salted egg and crispy yam crab, kam heong crab, and, of course, chilli crab.
End the night by exploring the city. If you’re stumped for date spots in the area, use Hotel Jen’s Night Light map. The digital tool scans social media to bring you the most popular and exciting venues to check out once the sun goes down.
