From cruises to Japanese-style onsens and Emily In Paris-esque cafes, Singaporeans are hankering for activities and places that bring “out of Singapore” vibes right to this little red dot. Of course, staycations still top the list - lounging within the four walls of a hotel room somehow always beats nua-ing within the four walls of our HDBs.
Those who are seeking some fresh air but don’t wish to get themselves dirty in the outdoors can check out the new Glampcation packages by Grand Park City Hall, which involve staycations bundled with a rooftop glamping picnic and free breakfast. If you’re only keen on the picnic and would rather go home to your own bed, that can also be arranged!
Read on to find out more about Grand Park City Hall Singapore’s Glampcations & Glamping Picnics!
Glamping Picnics at Grand Park City Hall
A Glamping Picnic at Grand Park City Hall will have you dining under a romantic gazebo or in a tent, on the rooftop terrace of the hotel. Despite being in the heart of the concrete jungle, this scenic open-air space is spruced up with shrubbery and plots of grass so it’ll really feel like you’re in a park or garden.
A specially curated picnic menu by Tablescape, a European restaurant within the hotel, will be served. This is an indulgent 7-course affair comprising of the following items:
- Mini Beef Burger (wagyu patty)
- Chilli Crab Mousse
- Foie Gras
- Cheese with crackers, fruits, and nuts
- Plant-based Tacos
- Artisanal bread and butter
We recommend going for the tent if you don’t mind sitting on the floor for that true blue picnic experience, complete with photogenic decor like artificial vines, flowers, and lamps. A cushy bed, blankets, and fur rug are also thrown in to add on to the comfort and cosiness.
However, if you still prefer dining at a proper table with chairs that come with backrests, opt for the gazebo. A soft, gauzy fabric is draped across beams to form a canopy, while a string of pastel cotton ball lights add a touch of whimsy.
These pink, blue, and white balls turn into glowing amber orbs in the evening, illuminating your semi-private corner as you tuck into your feast.
The Glamping Picnic costs $88 per person, with a minimum spend of $350 per tent or gazebo, which can accommodate a maximum of 5 people. This means that if you’re going as a couple, you’ll have to purchase additional food and drinks in order to make up the minimum spending amount.
That might seem like a tall order, but perhaps you can ask the restaurant if you’re able to purchase entire bottles of wine to take home in order to hit the amount.
Pick from 2 seatings: 5.30pm to 7.30pm, or 8pm to 10pm. The former will allow you to watch the sunset, while the latter would make for a more intimate setting that’s perfect for anniversaries or even proposals!
Glampcation packages at Grand Park City Hall
If a picnic simply isn’t enough, have a mini vacay with a Glampcation package! Pick from various suite options that all include free breakfast for two, the aforementioned Glamping Picnic experience, and complimentary parking as part of the bundle.
This might be a more value-for-money option if you think you may not be able to hit the minimum spend for the a la carte Glamping Picnic.
Prices are as follows:
- Junior Suite - from $538
- Garden Junior Suite - from $578
- Oasis Junior Suite - $628
- Park Suite - $1,038
- Coleman Suite - $1,238
These are evidently not the most affordable, but remember that you’re getting a whole suite instead of a standard hotel room. Plus, with the added perks, it’s a pretty sweet deal. When divided by 2 people, you’ll be paying a reasonable $269 per person.
Suite categories of Oasis Junior and above come with their very own private outdoor jacuzzi tub for you and bae to get steamy in.
The Garden Junior Suite comes with a little outdoor balcony where you can soak in the view and enjoy a spot of tea.
If you’d like to share the joy with some friends or family members, you can invite up to 3 of them down to join your Glamping Picnic experience at $88 per person.
Grand Park City Hall’s Glampcation packages and Glamping Picnics will be open for booking for a limited period of time till 30 June 2021. Find out more and make your reservation here.
