Rising like a glass-etched vertical garden from the hustle of Chinatown, the Parkroyal on Pickering is a green-cred urban oasis of sustainable design, mod features and smart add-ons for Orchard Club members.
Airy, foliage-filled corridors lead onto blond wood-lined rooms with king-size beds, walk-in rain showers and handy gadgetry like powerpoint-free phone chargers and doors so polite they push themselves open. Request a room with Hong Lim Park views to avoid a ‘Rear Window’ situation, or slap down a few extra notes for one of the Orchard Club suites and score perks like slinky in-room soaking tubs and access to the lofty lounge n’ library where you’ll be served champagne breakfast daily.
Work up a sweat in the fitness centre (if you’re not a sweaty already, Betty… thank you, Singapore), zen out with traditional eastern treatments in the blissful St. Gregory Spa, or beeline for the rooftop bar and infinity pool ringed with brightly coloured birdcage cabanas. And for rumbly tums there’s edgy open kitchen Lime plating up casj global-Asian. Yumsome, and then some.
