A local getaway at the Ritz-Carlton

Three weekends ago, E and I went on a mini-weekend break at the Ritz-Carlton Millenia (our stay was gratis, but I can't publicly divulge how we got this deal). Our room was really nice -good size, and with a marvellous view of Kallang Bay and the Sheares Bridge section of the ECP highway. One of the highlights was the bathroom, with a huge bathtub which shared the same view as the main bedroom area although a major letdown was that such a luxury class hotel didn't provide bath salts or bubble bath.

It was a wonderful break for us. We borrowed movie DVDs at the Esplanade Library to watch in the hotel, and ate lunch at Tomo Fine Dining (more on that in a later post). I also renewed my magazine subscriptions during the SPH Women's Fair which was coincidentally being held at Marina Square that day and came away with tons of free gifts (high quality beauty products) as well as a voucher for a free facial at a Sothys salon, which I promptly went for the same day (salon located at Millennia Walk).

So, all in all, an extremely fruitful and (very!) low cost getaway.
