Orchard Hotel, Weekend Staycation | We Clean We Care We Welcome

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Last weekend, we checked into Orchard Hotel for a weekend staycation!
With the recent situation surrounding the Coronavirus and all the travel bans in place, almost every event , trip and activity that has been planned had to be postponed / cancelled, for the good of everyone.

Thankfully for hotel staycations that allow us to satisfy a little bit of the wanderlust in us, and escape from our usual daily routines. I've really been enjoying staycations these days because it makes me feel like I'm on vacation - so relaxing!

So glad to hear about Millennium Hotels and their We Clean We Care We Welcome , which has been rolled out vigorously across all of their properties (there are 6 in total in Singapore) to ensure that guests have a peace of mind when they stay with them.

The first sight I was greeted by in the lobby while checking in was the automatic hand sanitiser, and temperature checks.

Checking In
The room was surprisingly spacious and big! Orchard Hotel has been newly revamped and renovated and I could definitely see all the upgrades in every corner.
I stayed at the Premier Room , which is big enough to fit 3 adults and 2 children.

Facilities

With a total of 5 in-house restaurants, a business centre, gym, swimming pool, parking and a mall connected right to it (with a nice Cold Storage Supermarket too!) and Orchard Road right outside, I loved my stay!

As part of the We Clean We Care We Welcome campaign, Orchard Hotel has also put in place several special arrangements to ensure the utmost safety for their guests.
One of my favorite ones - Alfresco Dining at The Orchard Cafe

Diners who are worried about being in air-conditioned enclosed spaces can opt to sit outside at the alfresco area, with high ceilings and a nice breeze, especially during the evening time!
The best part? There's an exclusive menu for this!
$48++ for 3 courses, and $6 House Pours (M wine & M Beer) from 5-8PM daily.

I invited my friends over to chill with Matt and I and they spontaneously agreed!
Here are our appetisers. Can I just say... the portions are HUGE!
Caesar's Salad and Mushroom Soup (soup of the day)
Mains
I ordered the Nasi Goreng while the rest ordered the Oven Roasted Rib-Eye Steak and Pan-Seared Norwegian Salmon steak

Out of the 3 dishes, I liked my Nasi Goreng the most, hehe!
Wok-Hey. Check.
Crispy Fried Chicken. Check.
Cant go wrong with a local delight hehe

Matthias with his dessert, Pandan Lava cake with Sea Salt Ice Cream!
Once again, blown by every single course's portion. It was hard to believe that we were having a set meal! Talk about value for money.

Check out the Alfresco Dining option here.

Then came Breakfast. Not gonna lie, I love hotel breakfasts. And it's funny because whenever I stay in a hotel, breakfasts excite me the MOST. Yes, more than the rooms because I'm a breakfast girl that will never skip her breakfast. 

But with the virus at the back of my mind, Matt and I agreed that indulging in buffets now probably wouldn't the best idea. Just as we were contemplating on this, we were told that Orchard Hotel has rolled out a SEMI-BUFFET for breakfast starting that day! 
It was like the heavens heard us T.T

Ala Carte Menu
Choose a main course from here and help yourself to some cereal, bakes and salads from the buffet line. 
All tables are also spaced at least 1 metre away from one another to avoid being too close.
Breakfast was so good, and I'm not lying when I say this was probably the best cheese omelette i've ever had in a hotel! Everything was served hot and fresh, definitely a sign that it was prepared upon request. 
Just look at Matthias's smile hehe ><
