. staycation: Capri by Fraser .

Although the boy and I love the idea of having a weekend staycation right in Singapore, the relatively high cost of a hotel stay has deterred us from having too many staycations. Thanks to Frasers Hospitality and Dunbar-Jones & Associates, the boy and I were given the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive 3 days & 2 nights full-board stay at the hotel where suite meets apartment.

Capri by Fraser features an eclectic and stunning mix of art installations throughout the hotel residence that adds to its chic and trendy style. Prominently showcased throughout the hotel residence’s public areas, these abstract forms of art add a delightful variation of colours, shapes and textures that create a sense of style and realism in each distinctive social space, where white spaces converge as a natural canvas to showcase these magnificent art pieces.

Although there is no shortage of restaurants and diners for guests living at Capri (lots of food places at Changi City Point which is located next to the hotel), the hotel also offers a range of dining options for those who prefer to stay-in. There’s Caprilicious that offers all day dining, Delite cafe where you can grab a light bite on-the-go and of course, 24/7 in-room dining services!

Value for your buck: *** 1/2 out of 5

Remember!
Happy Hour for guests: 6-7pm every Mon-Fri





At 32 sq m, the Studio Superior room that we stayed in is relatively bigger than most of the superior hotel rooms available in boutique hotels. A comfortable size for guests who are looking for a short-term accommodation.


Comes with an ergonomic chair that’s great for business travelers

In-room private kitchenette where you may do your own cooking

Complimentary natural-based toiletries from Malin + Goetz (love it!)
* Once again, the first hotel in Singapore to bring this exclusive brand of products.


All utensils, cutlery and pots are provided as part of your stay in this serviced apartment

Presenting … The Studio Grand, the biggest room (70 sq m) available in Capri by Fraser. It’s about twice the size of the Studio Superior room and comes with a relatively large outdoor terrace. It even has a day bed for those who would like to enjoy the breeze and sun (I wanna get that for my future house)! At $262 a night, I must say that it is a pretty attractive price and I might just consider making a reservation for special occasions! 🙂

Want some form of entertainment during your staycation? Well, Capri by Fraser has it all planned out for the guests. Offering the integrated launderettes, guests are now able to either play games or exercise while waiting for their laundry. AWESOME! 🙂

The ‘Spin & Play’ recreation room is actually my fav place in Capri by Fraser! 🙂 The boy had a good workout punching some kick-ass punches (thanks to his Muay Thai workout) while I had a rolling good time trying to keep up with the dance steps on Dance Central! I must confess that I really do have 2 left feet lol.



Types of activities offered in the launderettes across the 12 floors:

+ TRX suspension trainer
+ Cicollette

+ Punching Bag
* the boy’s favourite
+ iPad
+ Wii
+ Xbox 360 Kinect
* my favourite! Dance Central!
+ Foosball


It’s ratings time … Time for my verdict!

Location: **** out of 5
Good for business executives & associates who work in Changi Business Park
Located within a stone’s throw from Expo MRT and Changi City Point

Ambiance: *** 1/2 out of 5
A hotel with a touch of style & quirk

Facilities: *** 1/2 out of 5
The usual facilities aside ( 24/7 dining, swimming pool, gym), I love the fact that Capri by Fraser also offers an in-room kitchenette and a ‘Spin & Play’ recreation room! Having Wii and Xbox games made my hotel stay even more fun than I expected.

Service: **** out of 5
The staff are generally very approachable and friendly without being too fake (you know how some service people tend to be a little too ‘forced’). I also appreciated the fact that the GM, Raymond, made an effort to chat with the boy and me thus adding a personal touch to our staycation.

Once again, I would like to thank Shi Lin & Raymond from Frasers Hospitality and Janice from Dunbar-Jones & Associates for extending the invitation to me! 🙂
