Want to know how to REALLY spoil your mum this Mother’s Day? Let’s start with a pampering massage, dinner and an overnight stay at the iconic Fullerton Hotel Singapore…
What do mums really want for Mother’s Day? Well, you can start with a big fat sleep-in… At Singapore icon The Fullerton Hotel? Now that’s a treat. A long lazy Mother’s Day brunch wouldn’t go astray. Throw in a serious spa session with a divine massage, then a five-star dinner and a night in this luxury heritage hotel, and you’ll earn some serious brownie points.
We had the pleasure of taking our Mum to spend a night at the Fullerton Hotel to celebrate Mother’s Day in a very indulgent way (tough job, we know!) Read on to find out just why we loved it so much… and you have a chance to win your very own staycay at the Fullerton with your mum!
It’s not every day that my mum visits Singapore (she lives in a country town in Australia), and it’s not every day that a beautiful historic luxury hotel asks us to do a mother-daughter staycation to celebrate Mothers’ Day next month. As they say, timing is everything!
Do you really need us to tell you to indulge in a fabulous staycation in a Singapore icon? We’ll tell you anyway: here is why we think everyone should book themselves and their mums for some bonding time with the Mother’s Day Stay, Spa and Dine experience at The Fullerton Hotel.
The historic beauty (and I don’t mean Mum!)
One of oldest buildings in Singapore, the Fullerton Hotel is steeped in history. Mum just loved all the old photos of the hotel that lined the hallways, and the beautiful and rich architecture of the building. It really is like staying in a museum #nightatthemuseum.
The spaaaa-ah experience
I sent Mum off for the Fullerton Spa signature 60-minute Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience, which is generously included in the Mother’s Day Stay, Spa and Dine package (see all the deets below), and she literately floated back to the room. She swore (without cursing, of course) that is was THE BEST MASSAGE EVER, which was a super nice treat for Mum, who has probably had about five massages in her life (unlike her spolit daughter).
Club Lounge experience
Have you ever stayed in a Club Lounge? I hadn’t (and neither had Mum) and we really didn’t know what the fuss was about… but now we completely get it. Champagne breakfast, Champagne afternoon tea, and free-flow drinks and canapes in the evening – the Club Lounge is the B.O.M.B. Just like business class travel, it’s going to be very hard to go back to a regular hotel stay experience. Uh-oh…
The out-of-this-world service
When we checked in I brought my two little boys with me, as they were keen to check out the pool and the hotel with us. The hotel didn’t know they were coming – but they were greeted with a Fullerton Hotel Teddy Bear, an activity book, crayons and, the most exciting, “Ice Cream Membership” which came with their name on a lanyard, and a pass to free ice cream at certain hours of the day. Totally unexpected. Totally rad.
The pillow menu (and the sleep in!)
Okay so the rooms are totally plush, with massive marble baths, beautiful spa products, and divine dreamy pillows – there’s even a pillow menu so you can select the perfect pillow for your weary head.
But really, the best thing? Spoiling my Mum, seeing her really enjoy the 5-star experience . And, of course, the elusive sleep-in (nothing like a night away from my three little ones). It was really a lovely present for the both of us and a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day and spend some quality time with this special lady.
The Mother’s Day Stay, Spa and Dine package at The Fullerton Hotel includes privileged access to the hotel’s Executive Lounge, The Straits Club for two persons, The Fullerton Spa’s signature Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience for one, a $90 nett dining credit, a bouquet of flowers, and late check out at 2pm. Prices start from $538 plus 10% service charge and prevailing government taxes per night for a Straits Club Courtyard Room. This package is available on April 29 and 30, and May 1, 6 to 8 and 13 to 15. For reservations, call 6533 8388 or email [email protected].
