Mandarin Oriental Lounge (Singapore)

We were very very lucky to get a very good rate at the Mandarin Oriental Singapore. We always wanted to stay at this hotel ever since it opened several years ago but the sky high price kept us away. With our stay at the Mandarin Oriental, we were upgraded to the corporate floor. Included in the upgrade is the use of the exclusive 'Corporate Lounge'.

The bedroom is where we slept; but the concept for the lounge is that the lounge is the center of all of our activities...check in/ out, high-tea, champagne & snacks and where our breakfast is served.

The lounge has huge windows that gives spectacular views of the Singaporean skyline. The lounge has huge sofas as well as dining tables & chairs and private meetings rooms. At the lounge, this is where we could relax after a long day of shopping with several glasses of champagne & hot snacks.

The decor is a mixture of dark & light wood, glass and metal. Since it is the Mandarin Oriental, the design has antique and modern Asian touches.

The hot snacks chance every day. This day; the choices for example were, crispy pork, satay, fish wrapped in pandan leaves, etc. Everything went very well with our champagne (actually, several glasses of it).

The lounge is a great idea. The service is friendly and very attentive. They treat you very special. Hope we can afford to stay at the Mandarin Oriental on our next visit to Singapore.
