True to the hotel’s calling, a spice garden on the fourth floor grows fruit like bananas, pomegranates and passion fruit as well as herbs, all to be used in Ah Hoi’s Kitchen and Rumpoles Bar. The more common amenities include a jacuzzi, sauna, steam and treatment rooms, 24-hour gym, and – unexpectedly, judging from Hotel Jen’s façade – a 30-metre-long swimming pool. Oh, and a PressReader app that’s free for guests allows access to 5,000 magazines and newspapers.
You’ll never go hungry here. Start off with lunch at J65, the hotel’s main restaurant that serves international and local cuisine. Then move on to dinner at Ah Hoi’s Kitchen, which whips up local delicacies like chilli crab and char kway teow. And if you check into the Club room, you can snack on complimentary drinks and snacks at the 24/7 Club Lounge. But hit up happy hour from 5 to 7.30pm when there’s free flow red and white wine, housepours and beers, as well as a selection of canapés. Otherwise, head to Rumpoles Bar. Every day from 5pm, there are free fried chicken wings that you can use to pad your tummy while enjoying the one-for-one housepour promo during the same time. Still feeling peckish? Head to the 24-hour Jen’s Kitchen On-the-Go for light bites and good coffee.
We doubt anyone would want to leave the king-sized beds, fitted with 300-thread-count linen and available in all 565 rooms of Hotel Jen Tanglin.
Explore the city on Instagrammable Tokyobikes, available for free to guests from 7am to 10pm. If you want to escape the bustle of Orchard Road, cycle to the Botanic Gardens, less than 10 minutes away. Bonus: you can document your outing on GoPros, also free from the concierge.
