During a recent weekend trip to Singapore I decided to try a different hotel, away from the busy Orchard Road and Marina Bay areas.
Somewhere not too far and within close reach of public transport was what I was looking for and Oasia by Far East Hospitality fit the bill. I liked the neighbourhood it was in – Novena -and it’s connected underground to Novena MRT. Shopping centres are also 5 minutes away – Velocity, Novena Square, United Square.
The Club Lounge serves breakfast and has free flow of alcohol/cocktails from 6-8pm. The infinity pool and jacuzzi were less crowded as compared to the public pool on the 8th floor.
The bed was extremely comfortable to the point I didn’t want to get up. Loved the dual curtains that you could control – one blocked the light and the other was a thinner material so you still get light but you still have privacy.
Housecleaning was good, though I noticed they missed out some tissue behind the bin and the hangers inside the closet were dusty. Otherwise it was fine.
Really loved the convenience of being linked to an MRT and the relative peace as compared to other areas. Good place for a staycation, weekend getaway or just a holiday in general! Good for lone travellers, business people or couples.
Note: Though there is a shuttle bus from Changi airport to Oasia, there isn’t one going to the airport so you’ll have to make your own way there.
