We'd heard that Singapore was such a beautiful and clean city, and were happy to finally be able to experience it for ourselves! The fact that Singapore is both a city and a country is super intriguing, so we planned to stop through to experience it for a couple days last week after a trip to Thailand. Our time was super limited so we had only one night at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway, but felt like our short time here was maximized because of all that this hotel has to offer! We could go on and on about our time at this hotel, but we've decided to highlight our 3 favorite aspects of Hotel Jen Orchardgateway for you!
It doesn't take much research at all to know that one of the best places to be in Singapore is on Orchard Road! There is so much going on, amazing restaurants, and incredible shopping! There are malls for days in Singapore, but we found the shopping on Orchard Road to be unbeatable. Hotel Jen Orchardgateway is located right on Orchard Road and makes experiencing this area really convenient. It also sits right above the Somerset MRT station, which made exploring other areas of Singapore simple and strategic as well. The location was ideal, and we loved being so central for our first time visiting Singapore.
One thing that all Hotel Jen properties offer is a club level lounge-- and let me tell you, it is totally worth the upgrade! With 24 hour drinks and snacks, we were in heaven! You can have breakfast in the club lounge to avoid the busier restaurant downstairs, there's an afternoon tea mid day, and starting at 5:30pm there's happy hour and light bites served as well. The food was incredible (more like a full-on buffet than light bites, actually), and it was so nice to be able to help ourselves to a glass or two of wine during happy hour while we worked from our laptops. The wifi in the lounge was unbeatable and we were able to be so productive editing and catching up on work!
The pool area at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway is located on the 20th floor rooftop deck, and had the most amazing views of Singapore! The rooftop vibes could not have been better, and the long infinity pool was gorgeous. The pool was lined with tons of beanbags that were perfect to lay back on, have a cocktail, and enjoy the pool or the stunning view. The roof offers tons of comfy seating either by the pool in the sun or away from the pool in the shade, so it's easy to find whatever makes you feel comfortable and have a place to work from or relax. We could have stayed by the pool for days!
Our stay at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway was our first experience with any Hotel Jen property, and we were so impressed! If you're looking for a beautiful hotel in Singapore in a central location, look no further than this property. We'll definitely be back!
