4 Reasons to have a romantic staycation at M Social Singapore this Christmas Season
1. Modern & stylish comforts
M Social Singapore’s designer elements shine through the very moment you step foot in the entrance. With creative elements all around, it sure did not feel like we were stepping foot into a hotel, but more of an artistic space. The interiors felt free and creative, and the furnishing was stylish yet comfortable. But as much as we loved hanging out in the lobby and dining area, I must say the biggest draw of M Social Singapore are the rooms. It’s time to find out why.
“M Social is where all the elements of the world – including creativity, humour and love – come together in an explosion of energy to create the joy of today’s and tomorrow’s world. To me, it is a stage dedicated to creative people.” – Philippe Starck
Cosy comforts in the Alcove Cosy / Terrace Room
M Social Singapore impressively takes a small and quaint space, and manages to beautify it into a cosy and intimate setting. The Alcove Cosy room and Alcove Terrace Room features dreamy lighting, minimalist interiors and pillows soft to the touch. The Alcove Terrace room exudes a romantic flair with its unique Chapel-inspired ceiling. It presents an ideal space for you and your beau to spend your vacation days relaxing together, snuggled into each other’s arms.
Duplex living in Loft Terrace Room
I love the idea of a loft. The thought of it feels romantic and somewhat mysterious, like childhood dreams of having your own private and quiet corner in the attic, which explains why I was so excited to be staying at the Loft room during our visit!
M Social Singapore brings loft living to a stylish dimension with The Loft Gallery room. Reminiscent of our loft room stay at The Fullerton Hotel, this room features a cozy living space on the first floor and a flight of stairs that reveal a super-soft queen-sized bed on the mezzanine floor. The aesthetics of the room is incredibly stylish – from statement cushions, metallic mirrored surfaces, to artistic rugs. Staying in such a space most definitely inspired creativity of my own as I did some work at the cosy study area provided.
Ideal for dreamy romantics seeking an uncommon touch to the regular staycation, the room features high ceilings that uplift the entire room, creating a sense of spaciousness. Start every morning by effortlessly drawing the blinds to reveal the full-length windows and let in plenty of natural sunlight, allowing you to feel free and instantly connected to the outdoors.
The room also comes with a 40-inch HDTV with Bluetooth integration and a selection of cable channels, which means you can choose to binge-watch your favourite shows all day while indulging in the room comforts. The room also has a control for you to brighten and dim the lights as you wish.
2. Introducing Tech-savvy conveniences
Lifestyle now means more than relaxing in the lounge or pool. In this era, the digital aspect of our lives is huge. M Social infuses technology to make your stay more seamless.
As you enter the reception area, friendly staff clad in casual uniforms come to greet you and usher you to their self-check-in kiosks (where you can instantly book a stay on the spur). Interactive iPads are placed on the walls of the dining halls. You can also charge your devices easily with the cables provided. Somehow, all these conveniences have merged seamlessly into the design and ambience of the hotel.
During your stay, bottled water, towels, toiletries and amenities are served to you by a hotel delivery robot, that led to M Social Singapore bagging two awards at the International Data Corporation Digital Transformation Awards this year. The robot impressively navigates its own way to you, and can even operate and ride in elevators! It really marks where our future is heading in terms of hospitality and lifestyle.
3. Keeping friends and community in focus
Despite the tech-savvy nature of M Social Singapore, do not get the idea that staying here is a soulless experience operated by machines. In fact, M Social Singapore vision is to create a creative and artistic space for collaborative lifestyles. Communal areas like the bar, restaurant and lobby are designed with an open concept, allowing you to freely explore and mingle with other guests.
The in-house restaurant at M Social Singapore aims to use food as a means to bring people together. Melding Asian and Western influences, Chef Bryce Li at Beast and Butterflies presents a menu of borderless cuisine. We suggest for you to try the Ham Hock, which is a crispy German pork knuckle paired with Asian sauerkraut. It also comes with a Thai Nam Jim sauce.
If like me, you love yourself a good cocktail, be sure to visit the bar at Beast and Butterflies, for they serve up some great artisanal cocktails presented in innovative ways.
4. Freebies and Facilities
At M Social, freebies and facilities await you. You can take a free shuttle bus to explore the neighborhood, enjoy updating your Instagram feed or staying connected to the free Wifi provided.
A 30-meter lap pool and a fitness center are also available for you to keep active.
M Social Singapore wants more than just to be a regular hotel where people simply check in to stay and a couple days later, leave. Their vision is to create a lifestyle experience where you can mingle and engage in the social activities lined up by their signature ‘I m Social Series’. Introducing lively events like live music, exercise programmes, it makes for a more exciting stay rather than a place simply for sleep and rest. Check in with their reception staff to find out what are the events happening during your stay.
