YOTEL Singapore – Discover the Sunny Island from the Heart of Orchard Road
July 10, 2019
YOTEL Singapore is the first YOTEL to open in Asia. Despite featuring a good location and offering many conveniences catering to all travellers, the accommodation comes without a hefty price tag. YOTEL keeps things simple to save all guests time and money. Bright ideas like self-service check-in kiosks mean no more waiting in line, while the ergonomically designed hotel cabins banish clutter and focus on everything you need. The following are 5 reasons why Jayden and I recommend a stay at YOTEL Singapore.
#1 – The Hotel Cabins Have Everything You Need
YOTEL boasts a range of hotel cabin types, from Premium Queen all the way up to the VIP King Suite View. Crammed full of smart ideas and space saving designs, the cabins have everything you need – from award-winning beds and adjustable mood lighting to rejuvenating rain showers and smart TVs that connect seamlessly with your own devices. If you are a business traveller, I’m pretty sure you’ll appreciate the laptop-size safe for storing your valuables. You’ll also be pleased to know that the desk is equipped with power and USB sockets. The iron and ironing board is also available in the cabin.
#2 – The Outdoor Swimming Pool is Fantastic for Cooling Down
Singapore’s weather is hot and humid, so why not splash around in YOTEL’s outdoor swimming pool? You can begin your day with a refreshing swim before having breakfast at the restaurant that’s right beside the swimming pool. Or, end your day on a good note with a relaxing swim, followed by a cocktail from the poolside bar.
#3 – Enjoy Local Food or Buffet Spreads at KOMYUNITI
KOMYUNITI on TEN is the social hub of YOTEL Singapore. It’s the place to meet up, wind down, eat and drink – whether you are relaxing with family and friends or catching up on emails. There is an outdoor patio where you can get a glimpse of Orchard Road, and you can also dine al fresco beside the swimming pool.
For breakfast, choose from a generous array of breads, bakery items, cold cuts, salads, cereals, yogurt, cheeses and fruits plus international offerings of steamed dim sum, noodles and congee, and Western favourites such as bacon, sausages, hash browns, fresh quiches and cooked tomatoes. Whether it’s the perfect sunny side up or an omelette cooked fresh, have your eggs cooked your way with the live egg station. With coffee, tea, an assortment of juices and the healthy Booster Juice creation, there is no better way to start your day.
For lunch and dinner, freshly cooked and full of flavour, the KOMYUNITI menu will tempt the most jaded of palettes.
#4 – Be Amazed by Yoshi and Yolanda, YOTEL’s crewbots
Yoshi and Yolanda are the first robots in the world to be equipped with Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) technology. This enables autonomous navigation around the entire hotel so that they can deliver amenities to your room, and they are so smartly engineered that they speak and detect obstacles or people in their way. They recently won first place in the award for ‘Robotics for Hospitality & Leisure’ at the Technology Excellence Awards 2019.
#5 – Work Out in order to Savour More Local Food at The Gym
YOTEL’s gym is conveniently located beside the swimming pool, with floor to ceiling windows and lots of light. It is open 24 hours daily, just in case you want to get a late night or early morning workout in. The state of the art gym features a variety of brand new equipment to help you break a sweat and work up a great appetite for life.
Furthermore, the hotel location is a great place to stay in Singapore. Although you are at the heart of action, from world-class shopping to incredible eating and drinking, you still get a little privacy and tranquillity since YOTEL is tucked cosily in a corner of Orchard Road. Now that you’ve known all the advantages of staying at YOTEL Singapore, you might want to consider this accommodation on your next holiday here.
