Sheraton Towers Singapore near Novena area
One of the great things about living or visiting a city like Singapore is that there are so many reliable and remarkable five-star luxury hotels to experience as a staycation or even as a business trip accommodation place. #FirstWorldSouthEastAsia Surprisingly, even two-stars and three-stars hostels and hotels here in Singapore are actually a-okay. Of course, it’s basic, but way bearable than the other ones you can find across Asia. However, having said that, I would argue that the five-star hotels in Singapore are the best that you’ll ever encounter here in South East Asia. And in terms of a place worth recommending, I would most likely pitch the idea and endorse going for the luxurious experience like the Sheraton Towers Singapore near Novena area.

What I really like about the Orchard area, aside from the profusion of shopping surprises is that it’s near almost everything: restaurants, bars, activity areas, and cafes. Also, the nearby train stations like Orchard, Somerset, Novena, and Newton are quite convenient. As a matter of fact, the Newton Interchange Train Station links the Downtown and North South Lines --- easily accessible to the Central Business District and places of interests like the Singapore Botanic Garden, Singapore's first UNESCO site. Now, this makes Sheraton Towers one of the best five-star options, since it is within arm’s reach to all of these places, while still maintaining the needed luxurious privacy. Not too touristy, so you can still enjoy a bit of quiet and posh siesta way from the masses.

Sheraton Towers has 40+ sophisticatedly decorated rooms with modern amenities and conveniences that you would really like. It’s rather spacious without being too exaggerated. Also, the view from the rooms are incredible, a slightly different kind of Singapore skyline view, which of course, is nice to look at if you’ve seen so much of the Marina Bay Sands area. It still has that modern momentous view, while maintaining its realistic and historic kind of vibe. Room amenities obviously is commendable – you get to enjoy state-of-the-art media hubs, 40-inch LED Flat Screen television with 27 TV channels, in-room electronic safe that is able to fit a 14-inch notebook, and an adjustable bedside reading lamp for those people who read a lot (aka: me). Ranging from Deluxe King to Terrace King, Pool King, Cabana King, Executive Suites, Deluxe Suites, and Royal Suites, there are so many room options to enjoy that high class, top of the crop kind of hotel stay-cation experience.

Aside from dining, fitness, and the typical wedding-venue worthy amenities, what sets Sheraton Towers Singapore apart from other nearby hotels within the area is the fact that they offer this really good Chinois Spa, there in-house spa service, where well-trained therapists and range of COSMOS-standard certified products will keep you relaxed and restored. Be it body scrubs, facials, steam rooms, body wraps, foot baths, couple’s massages, or any organic aromatherapy option, you’re all set! Let me know if you are planning to do a quick staycation here, I’ll be glad to volunteer myself to go and join you in their breakfast buffet or any spa treatment!

Goodwood Park Hotel in Orchard, Your Next 5-Star Hotel Staycation in Singapore

Goodwood Park Hotel in Orchard, Your Next 5-Star Hotel Staycation in Singapore
Your Next 5-Star Hotel Staycation in Singapore
Is finding a really good accommodation in Singapore quite challenging? It’s a yes and a no. Yes, it is challenging if you are looking in the wrong direction, and no it isn’t if you are particularly interested in staying in something tried and tested. This lion city, which I have been calling my second home for more than half a decade now, is full of surprises and it’s no exception that I got surprised when I discovered the Goodwood Park Hotel (Chinese: 良木园酒店) in the heart of Orchard road.

Perched in an amazing six-hectare landscaped garden that could rival that of European styles, this five star heritage hotel along Scotts Road is a welcome surprise. Initially built as a club house for the Teutonic Club serving the expatriate German community in Singapore, the Goodwood Park Hotel is the very first hotel in Singapore to have its own swimming-pool on its premises. What’s even more impressive is that it’s also the very first hotel to have its own air-conditioned wine cellar. When we arrived and checked in, couldn’t help but notice how high-end and Peranakan garden-like the outside areas are. Interesting enough, the tower block of the hotel has been gazetted as a National Monument of Singapore too!


After being built in the 1900s, you’ll be impressed to see how the hotel has transformed to what it is now – with three floors, more than two hundred rooms, and a number of notable restaurants worth visiting: a coffee lounge, L’Espresso, Gordon Grill, Min Jiang, Deli, and the Highland Bar. It’s four wings – Lobby, Mayfair, Tower, and Parklane – are all uniquely designed which makes it indeed an endearing pioneer of the Singapore tourism industry.

Spent the night checked-in at the Goodwood Park Hotel in Orchard to celebrate two things – one is for a birthday celebration, and another is for watching the World Cup. I am a fan of these two events, and the good thing is that our room, being extra spacious and cozy made all the difference in the world, and the view from our hotel room turned the party atmosphere into a relaxing ambiance! We had some snacks and drinks, while quietly cheering for our teams.


Afterwards, we decided to go downstairs to explore the vicinity; although it’s not as modern and as busy as in the other hotels around Orchard area, the overall sense inside this five-star hotel is more of like an aristocratic family gathering place. It should be your go-to choice if you are looking for that good accommodation that will transform your tranquil escapade that’s almost like a bit of a blast from the past, but can also be current enough to enjoy a celebration or two.

4 Far from Unfamiliar Places to Surely Visit in Riga, Latvia

4 Far from Unfamiliar Places to Surely Visit in Riga, Latvia
Absorbing, intriguing, fascinating, stimulating, gripping, riveting, compelling, arresting, entrancing, engaging, entertaining, exciting, engrossing, provocative, thought-provoking, pleasing, pleasurable, enjoyable, satisfying, readable, stirring, enthralling, spellbinding, affecting, alluring, exotic, unusual – so apparently, these, my friends, are the other words that you can substitute for the word: INTERESTING. I was kind of in the middle of finding better words to describe these places in Riga, Latvia, but truth is, the places are more than interesting but not on a completely outstanding level. It's a bit of a gray area, like the term: ABOVE AVERAGE. Even so, I believe that these notable and far from unusual places are worth the experience, especially if it is your first time in Riga, Latvia.

bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Riga Latvia :: 4 Far from Unfamiliar Places to Surely Visit in Riga, Latvia

And yes, why not I throw it out there and mention to you that Latvia’s capital is considerably inexpensive compared to neighboring European countries, so you are sure to get some serious value for your money. If you find things to do in the city of Riga, especially if you swing by the Old Town, after spending some time hanging out in cafes, bars, or restaurants, you can opt to visit these places without having to splurge on those fancy tours outside the city center. So, let me know what do you think about these four options?

Riga Cat House
Address: Meistaru iela 10/12, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1050, Latvia

What is the legend of the two black cats on a house in Riga Old Town and why does this building in Riga have two black cats on its roof? And why have these cats become the unofficial symbols of Riga? Nobody knows for sure, although there are plenty of stories relating to their placement atop the house’s turrets. Whilst sightseeing in Riga you may come across ‘The Cat House’. Sometimes called Black Cat House or Riga Cat House, this building has become the unofficial symbol of Riga. The house itself dates from 1909 (architect: Friedrich Scheffel) and is a mixture of styles, most notably its medieval twin turrets, on which the cats are perched, and its elaborate Art Nouveau portal surrounding the main entrance. It stands on Livu Square in the centre of Old Riga opposite the Great Guild hall. Read More: https://eatriga.lv/riga-cat-house/

Vanšu Bridge, Cable-Stayed Bridge in Riga
Address: Vanšu Tilts, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1050, Latvia

The Vanšu Bridge in Riga is a cable-stayed bridge that crosses the Daugava river in Riga, the capital of Latvia. Its name literally means Cable-stayed bridge and is also sometimes translated as Shroud Bridge. 595 meters in length, it is one of five bridges crossing the Daugava in Riga and passes over Ķīpsala island. It was built during the Soviet period and opened to public use on 21 July 1981 as the Gorky Bridge after Maxim Gorky street, today renamed Krišjānis Valdemārs street, which it extends across the river.

The Freedom Monument in Riga
Address: Central District, Riga, LV-1050, Latvia

Why locals love it - every Latvian knows this 42 meters tall monument that depicts young lady Milda holding three golden stars. These stars symbolize the provinces of Kurzeme, Vidzeme and Latgale. The monument is built to honour soldiers who were killed during the Latvian War of Independence (1918-1920). Nowadays it's one of the main meeting spots in the city.
