Escape to Quincy


I have had experienced full-board accommodation overseas and was pleased to find the first in Singapore with a similar concept.

At Quincy, the full board package includes a one-way airport transfer, all-day snacking with your in-room minibar replenished daily. You can even get 2 peices of laundry done (psst, bring your winter jacket for dry cleaning?). 

While i enjoy receiving the ang pows , i didn't want to quite face the Aunties' interrogation this Chinese New Year. Knowing that it would be a city shut-down this long weekend with exorbitant air fares, an escape to Quincy where I can eat and drink all i want (other than fast food) sounded apt. 

Tucked away on Mount Elizabeth, it is a 5 min walk down to Singapore's main shopping street. Because of its concept, i thought that Quincy is the perfect hotel for a lovers retreat, otherwise a potential recuperation haven for cosmetic patients at the hospital next door. 

I was greeted with an immaculate officer who swiftly checked me in and explained to me the rules of the game stay.
a modern and quirky lobby
#1 A daily replenished mini-bar at my disposal
Cookies, chips, tea, coffee and sodas were at our disposal to cosy up in front of the 31 satellite and local tv channels as we stay in-room. 

#2 swim & gym on level 12 at any time of the day
Our eyes light up when we heard about the pool being accessible 24 hours. Not sure why, but it made our hearts pound a little faster at the thought of moonlight skinny dipping. The infinity pool is glass enclosed and it makes scenic exercise both morning and night. There were also sauna and steam rooms big enough for 2 each time for steamy sessions with your partner. I like the considerate thought of having the fridge on this level well stocked with mineral water and 100 plus for guests to freely quench their thirst. 

#3 all-day refreshments
The full-board package includes snack bites from Dean & DeLuca and Modesto's . We particularly enjoyed the happy hours from 6 to 8pm, a free flow of good wine and cocktails. Conversations assisted by alcohol allows us to know each other better!
#4 unlimited Internet access, luxurious toiletries and a Room for the Exhibitionist
I get a spiritual high whenever i get branded toiletries in hotels. It gives me the impression that the hotel spares no expense to provide quality. It makes me feel very pampered.
made in UK
There is an iPod or iPhone dock (4s and below), otherwise there are 4 radio stations to tune up your room.
I'm convinced that Quincy is made for reigniting the spark between couples, with the see-through bathroom. Spacious and well-fitted with a bathtub, rain shower plus hand-held shower.
#5 extras for a Sat or Sun check-in
As i checked-in on a Friday, i didn't get to experience the cupcake or fruit tart making class nor the movie night. Apparently, you get these extras as part of their Qool Weekend deal. 
The full board package starts from 6pm of your night till the next day at 2pm. Despite having to check-out at 12pm, you can still enjoy food, drinks and facilities till 2pm. 

Quincy is having a Valentine's Day promotion. With their full-board concept, reignite your passion by spending quality time in-hotel with everything you need!
