A Family Fun Staycation in Swissotel Merchant Court's Kid-Themed Rooms + GIVEAWAY!

Media Review

Mention staycations, and the usual clean-looking hotel rooms invariably come to mind. But if you have kids like I do, you will know that any kid-friendly amenities included in any hotel room will be a refreshing change.

Especially if the kiddos open the door and come face to face with this sight.


Wowsers. It seems like kid-themed rooms are slowly catching on in a big way and Swissotel Merchant Court has set the bar pretty high when it comes to showing who exactly is the VIP for staycations.


Yes, the colourful themed bedding was what lit up the monkies' eyes first.

Situated conveniently next to Clarke Quay MRT station, Swissotel Merchant Court has just launched its brand new Family Fun Escape package in August 2016 and it will most certainly put a smile onto the kiddos' faces!


Do you spy what was present in the room in the above photo?

THIS.


A game console in the room. To the monkies, I think that itself determines whether a staycation is great or just okay. LOL.

The great thing about the Family Fun Escape package is it is designed for 2 to 17 year olds... which means depending on the age group that your kids, the room will be furnished with age-appropriate toys and activities. Of course, you will have to let the hotel know your kids' ages at the time of booking.


So if you have younger kids or toddlers, expect to find soft toys, activity books, storybooks, puzzles, and kid-sized desk and chairs - all to keep them entertained.


With more than enough activities in the room to keep the monkies entertained, I think they stopped talking to me after I snapped the mandatory photos of them.


But the kid-friendly amenities did not end there. Cutlery for kids - including hot chocolate - are also provided in the room.


The bathroom though, left me more than impressed. Rather than just stocking the bathroom with just kid toiletries (like most hotels do), Swissotel Merchant Court went a step further and furnished the bathroom with other kid-friendly items, like a step stool, non-slip mat and kiddy hand & face towels. These sure made the bathroom more colourful!



Compared to the kid-themed room, the parents' one was not as colourful.


But not that I am complaining. Swissotel Merchant Court has recently completed an overhaul of its rooms nearly complete and now, all its rooms employ a functional and elegant design with floral motifs inspired by Singapore’s status as a ‘Garden City’. I love the cheery yellow nature of the room, which complements the stupendous view of the Singapore River that the room offered.


Seeing all those water made the monkies to itch for a swim, and so we did.


The hotel's swimming pool was pretty standard fare but with the notable inclusion of two water slides - more than enough to keep the monkies happy!



The longer water slide is located at the main pool area, while there is a shorter one at the kids pool as well.


Cue loads of splashing madness then.



For kids below 12 years old, they will do well to remember Blue Potato, the hotel's poolside dining restaurant.


Why? Because this is where they will be able to redeem their free scoop of ice cream as part of the Family fun Escape package!


And obviously, the famed Ellenborough Market Cafe is not to be missed. Its buffet spread feature a host of international cuisine, specialty Peranakan dishes and its signature Durian Pengat.


If you need to burn off those calories, the vibrant Clarke Quay is just situated just right beside the hotel. Chinatown is also just minutes away by foot while shopping opportunities are abound at Liang Court and Central Shopping Mall.



To experience nature, stroll to the nearby Fort Canning Hill which offers a tranquil time among the lush vegetation.

Oh, and did I mention that the package also comes with 2 Adult and 2 Child tickets to Universal Studios Singapore*??? No wonder the monkies could not stop grinning after that learnt about it.

*USS tickets are valid for 6 months.


So if you are on the lookout for a staycation that hits all the right spots with the little ones, Swissotel Merchant Court is the ideal choice to have a seriously fun staycation with the family!

And to pile on the fun, remember to book the Family Fun Escape Package which includes the following perks:

- From $569++ per night for 2 rooms
- Swissotel Kids’ Room set-up and age-appropriate amenities upon request
- 2 Adult and 2 Child USS admission tickets (valid for 6 months)

As we don't have budget for travel this year and with my younger 18 mths old girl going childcare in Dec 2016 and her elder sister entering Primary 1 next year, I hope to win this Swissotel Merchant Court Staycation for my family!

Hope we can win and spend some family bonding time in Nov or Dec this year before school starts in 2017.

Pls pick me! ^_^

Hi, it will be really fun for the kids and the whole family to have a staycation at Swissotel Merchant Court as we haven't had a good vacation break together this year yet!!!

Karelessly in Love said...

Oooh this is such a wonderful giveaway. Hoping I can win. The room sounds like a dream for families with kids too.

Esther Tan H L said...

Liked! Our family seldom travel thus a local getaway is always very enjoyable for my 4yo. He would love the pool!!

Rachel said...

I wish to win the staycation for my family because I have never been to any staycation before as my husband thinks its a waste of money and time since we will still be in SG. I wish to prove him wrong that a staycation within SG is definitely different from just staying at home. To add on, since the arrival of my baby girl, we have not done any travelling for the past 1 year and probably wont be travelling anytime soon, therefore I would like to take the opportunity of the staycation to relax, to be away from the household chores and to just enjoy family bonding time albeit in Singapore itself.

Nadia Kua said...

My 2 kids would love to win this highly rate staycation! The room looks very cozy and kids friendly and parents get their own privacy! Who wont cherish that?!

What a beautiful and fun place for a family fun staycation. I wish to win this giveaway for my daughters very much especially my no 2 's birthday is coming very soon. She will be very thrilled if she can stay at this amazing room on her birthday

sista said...

Would love to win this staycation package for the Christmas season, the kids would love it especially the kids themed room and pool!

Evon Pokka said...

My Husband has been working so hard these days that we hardly get much together family time. I'm a SAHM to a pair of twin girls and they just love spending time playing and monkeying around with daddy. A staycation will Shake us out of the rut and give us all a much deserved break! Really wish to be able to win this!

melateez said...

Please please pick me! It be definately a great break for my family. For I looked after my elderly mom & its quite difficult to bring her out of sg. Hope we could win tis giveaway & it be a great gift not only for mom but also my two kids & hubby who always support me & help me look after my mom. ��������

HuIsHaN said...

I hope to win so that i can bring my family for a staycation during my birthday and to let my 2yr old daughter enjoy herself while i enjoy my babymoon cum birthday with them!

Jason Chew said...

My wife have decided to become a stay at home mum to look after the family and also to spend more time with our boy. It was never an easy job to look after a preschooler for 24hours a day. A stay at home mum does not have annual leaves or sick leaves. She dedicated herself to the family and she also prepare the three meals all by herself every single day. I really appreciate what she have done to the family.

I am grateful for an awesome wife and she is the best mum to our boy. I hope to have a chance to treat her for a staycation to surprise her on our upcoming 8th wedding anniversary!!

vicster said...


Hi Cheekiemonkies!

This sure looks like great fun! Having 2 daughters - a 5 year old and a 3-coming-to-4 month old - has brought immense joy (and stress) to both me and my wife.

Being a family without a helper (and 2 working parents) - literally has brought us closer together but everyone needing to contribute to the household chores etc. What better way to relax and enjoy a short staycation than this!

Thanks in advance! Looking forward to an unbelievable and truly memorable time! :)

Will be awesome

Sharon Ng said...

The Dad of my boy is the most special person in my life. He's the sole breadwinner of the family and always working hard to provide us with what the family wants.

He not only will help out in household chores, he also spent time bonding with family. As a stay at home mum, I do not have the financial capability to spend on luxury staycation. I would really hope to have this chance to surprise my Husband with a staycation to let his rest and relax~

elenalau said...

As a SAHM for all these 10years and due to poor health and not being able to be out working, going on staycations are consider luxurious and not to say going overseas yah! My hubby had always been a great dad and sole breadwinner in the family. The three "monkies" in my house not only bring loads of chores for me but what is more important is their good characters and values. Whatever stress i felt will just melt away seeing how much they tried to help out around the house. My hubby and our three kids deserved a good break and a reward.

Mandy Chee Lay Yong said...

This coming 10th Oct is our ROM Anniversary turn 15. For past years we always celebrate at restaurant but this year I wish to have the most memorable memory celebrating add to my album. Really hope to win Swissotel Merchant Court's hotel staycation giveaway for my family. ∩__∩

GerMaine Tay said...

We are unable to have a family holiday this year because my boy is having his PSLE and I can see that he is struggling and working real hard for his examination. I hope that I can win for him as a little reward and to surprise him for his birthday at Swissotel Merchant Court!

Please fulfill my tiny wish! <3

lim said...

I have 2 boys aged 12 and 9. As my elder son is taking his PSLE this year, we didn not plan for any overseas holiday. The boys mentioned they will be happy to be able to just go to Universal Studio at Sentosa. As I am a working mum, I am blessed to have the help of my mother to take care of my sons while I am at work. Hence I hope to be able to win the staycation package so as to have the opportunity to allow my family to enjoy themselves for their efforts and hardwork. It will also be a pleasant surprise for the family as we have never had the chance of having a family staycation before.

YS Chia said...

I would love to win this staycation. Just had a baby this year so going anywhere overseas (even Malaysia!) Is a logistical challenge. I hope to win this staycation and USS tickets so that my older kids will enjoy a holiday after wotking hard for their exams despite not being able to go overseas.

My husband and I together with my 2 kids have never been on a staycation in Singapore and we hope that we will be able to win this stay for my 2 lovely children, spending qualitytime with them. At the same time, we believe and hope others can also know that staycation in Singapore can also be fun and memorable especially with Swissotel Merchant Court.

Irene Chin said...

We are all stressed up now with SA2 coming very soon so hopefully we can win this staycation to relax and have fun after that.

Richard said...

Our family love staycations especially in our beautiful land of Singapore. We have tried out several places but none is as Kids-friendly as what we saw on Swissotel Merchant Court’s Kid-Themed Rooms. Cheekiemonkies has done a good job in promoting these fun places and we would definitely love experience it ourselves.

Therefore, we would sincerely love to win this Family Fun Escape Package, especially in the Month of Oct . This bring two special occasions to our family which happen to be my wife’s birthday and our 10 years wedding anniversary. It would bring us absolutely joy if we could have the golden opportunity to win this luck draw contest.

With fingers crossed, we prayed ...

fel Seah said...

Our family has not done any staycation (locally) before, as we cannot imagine having a chillax and fantastic staycation without leaving Sungapore. But due to our busy schedules ahead, Im inspired to try one after reading your blog! This giveaway will be great for our upcoming 10th year anniversary and birthday celebration. Can't wait to bring our 4year old son to try out the slides and pool and have a fabtastic family celebration soon! That is, if you pick me:)) thank you!!

Ash said...

Hope to win this because:
1) the review looks fantastic!
2) haven't come across a kids-themed hotel like this in Singapore.
3) my 2 and 3 year olds are gonna be very happy.
4) easier to bring them on a staycation than overseas at this age.
5) haven't been to Clark Quay area for a while.
6) I've never won anything online!

We love staycations at all times, especially more so when Swissotel Merchant Court is so conveniently located and and provides so much fun for the family!

With 3 sons and the youngest at only 18months, we are always looking out for good local stay cations. Please pick us so we can share this new staycation place with our fellow friends too!

Jason Phoon said...

Liked! It would be great to have my family staying there as this was the hotel where we held our wedding dinner! It would bring back many fond memories for my wife and I. My wife and I would be able to show my daughter around the hotel and tell her how good this hotel is and who knows,she can have her wedding here too when she gets married in future! ��

Yin Xiu said...

This will be a perfect getaway from our busy stressful schedules at work for both my husband and I. Most importantly, a perfect bonding time with both our active and sweet boys. Both of them will be enthralled and excited by the awesome kids friendly features in the room and slide at the pool. Since we can't afford to bring them oversea, hope this short staycation will be a great holiday for them=)

Ester Em said...

Some say that stay-at-home moms have it easy. But it is the exact opposite, I rarely get to use the toilet without anyone crying for me :-) A staycation would mean that hubby would be there to help me look after the kids and the kids can fully enjoy themselves in the themed rooms. It's like living out their fantasies. This is not only make-believe, this is real :-) Hoping to have the chance to give the kids a treat and also do myself a favour and a chance to relax and watch the tiny brood go crazy in their amazing rooms :-)

Lily said...

It's our 10th wedding anniversary this year and we got married in merchant court too. Will be great to go back for a staycation with the kids in tow!

Vivian Quek said...

OMG!! This is a super great idea!! Our 4 kids seriously needed a good break from routine and our tired bones needed a good rest!! This is perfect for a staycation especially during the school hols!! I promise to Share Share Share and Post Post Post our experiences here to each and every soul we know, if we win it! Cheers!! Thank you!!!

Kids theme bedroom would be my kids dream comes true. It is a perfect bedroom for all kids. There is no way they could have it at home, unless we do a major change to our bedroom now. The USS tickets are perfect addition to the giveaway, too. Hope to win the giveaway! It would be a great christmas gift for us. Thank you.

Alice Maneff said...

Liked n shared. my husband only back for once a month. He always loved to spend his 6 days with us He has no friends in Singapore as he always said that he do not have enough time for us, so he is not going to waste any moments. And I am a full time housewife. We would like to win this contest n bring him for a staycation on his birthday coming NOV. Thank you.

Yvonne Lim said...

It'll soon be my little boy's 6th birthday and I wish to give him a surprise! He's never been on a staycation and it will be a special experience for him on his birthday. Thank you for this chance and hope I'll be picked :)

This contest came at the right time for my family! Just as I am searching for staycation for the kids this year end. It would be a great bonus if we win.
Having a family of 6 (I know we have 1 extra kid for any room combo 😩), it's certainly a headache looking for a hotel that would accommodate all off us in a room! It's either we pay an exorbitant service apt rate or we need 2 connecting rooms ! 😒
Hence, family rooms like this is certainly something appreciated especially when my kids are old enough to wanna be separated from us and makes it easier for me to go to them whenever they need me in the night. Actually, I think I would be in the kids section more so than the other side 😂
Definitely a great getaway and needed break for my kids after all the mugging that we r doing now for the final exam !

My kids love staycation but we only did it once and never had it again as it just feels like a normal hotel stay. But this swissotel merchant court kids theme room looks really interesting and fun plus the slides at the swimming pool, it will definitely be a big hit with my 2.young girls! And not to mention, the USS tickets! We have never been to USS before, these tickets will definitely be very much welcome!

Jean Ling said...

I hope this Dec we able to make a staycation as hubby just change a new job and we can take flight far. We always been travelling esp school holiday but this is the only time we can't go anywhere except plan outing in Singapore. I hope to wi. This staycation that will able to complete my wishlist for our family as a break for long school holiday. Wish me luck!

Wikiparty said...

Clarke quay area holds a very special place in the hearts of hubby and myself as we got married in one of the restaurants there. We never really got a chance to revisit the area to reminisce since we had our 2 kids very shortly after wedding. It will be an extraordinary experience for us to have a chance to revisit together with our 2 young kids, not mentioning how much my girl loves staycation to the point that everytime we step into a hotel whether to attend an event or a meal gathering, my daughter will ask the question : "are we going to stay here tonight?". If we win this, we can finally answer her "yes, we are!".

I would love to win this staycation for my 2 young kids because i'm guilty to be a FTWM and spend so little time with them. We couldn't take them to oversea as my younger child has a few asthma attack recently so life was quite sad and slow for us. I hope to wish this so I can bring joy to my children and let them enjoy their childhood like others do. Thank you so much. :)

the youngest one does not the luxury of travelling as much as Jie Jies do when they were baby. due to the huge age gap, the youngest one often has no playmate cos the two Jies always busy with their school,homework and hp! so this getaway is good chance for the 3 siblings to bond in their kids theme room. they will love it. thank you very much

Hotels that treat kids as VIP is not common and very much appreciated. Great job Swissotel Merchant Court! Been busy with work lately and i was hoping to make it up to my kids. Hoping against hope this is meant for our family :)

I hope to win this staycation because this year is my 10th wedding anniversary and I would like to take opportunity to spend our anniversary there with my family.

I hope to get this staycation, to make my family happy and make our 10th anniversary a very memorable one.

Thanks for giving me a chance.

Hope to win this staycation to mark another milestone of my elder boy's life as he is starting his primary school next yr. The slide at the pool, the colourful kids friendly room, the yummy food are all wonderful factors of Swiss Merchant court hotel, no forgetting the location. The monkeys at home will be so thrill if we win this. Pick us pick us. Thank you!

Our kids (two and four) don't have passports (so they can't travel overseas) and we live with our in-laws. A staycation at Swissotel Merchant Court Hotel will be the perfect for the whole family. It coincides with my birthday too in December, so it will be a wonderful celebration with kids' friend room, yummy food and the pool :)

Our kids love going on holiday and they would be thrilled with the family package the hotel is offering! We've been spending a lot of time on work and time with the family is much needed. This would be a much needed break!

It is our 10th wedding anniversary on 1st October and we are tight on the budget to have a celebration! Would be a bonus for my daughter who turns 6 on 6 Nov! Thank you!

The husband and I have been burnt out from work and on top of that, there are two active boys to manage after work. I hope to have this starvation for a well deserved break for the adults while the kids entertain themselves in the equipped room.

Thanks for sharing this great staycation!

Our wedding was held at this hotel and we would love to be back to celebrate our 15th anniversary in December. It will be meaningful to walk down memory lane with our son and share the wonderful memories with him, while creating new ones as a family together.

Hope we can be given a chance to do so.

Because it is located in the heart of the city, and it has kids-friendly facilities. A perfect relaxing place for our getaway!!! Facebook ID: Chin Ming

Wow I love that the room will be furnished with age appropriate facilities according to individual family needs!

Because bringing along a child with special needs for an overseas holiday is too stressful and a staycation is the least we can offer as a compensation to our 2 other kids for their amazing support and understanding to their little brother.

We never had a staycation at hotel before even our wedding, the kids will be excited if they were given a chance to experience it!

I hope I can be the lucky winner for the staycation. This coming Dec is our 10th year wedding anniversary and we have never ever celebrate our wedding anniversary. I hope to be able to celebrate this special 10th year with my hubby n two kiddos. Besides that, my kiddos have always wish to stay in a kid themed hotel. Hope their wish can also be granted for this holiday. Lastly, we have never being to uss, hope it will be a total new experience for them in the upcoming school holiday.

A very eventful year, started with my grandfather's passing, my fil and my mum not well in hospital and were there for a while. As now we are busying with our new house, felt really bad for not spending time with our son. I am looking forward to win this staycation to spend some quality time with the family, and end the year with a sweet note.

This will be a great gift to my sis and family as she has not taken any overseas vacations for a few years. She deserves it for her selfless dedication to her family as a stay-at-home mum. This will definitely bring a big smile to her face :)

What will be a better treat for a young family with young kids? A staycation at our sunny island without the hassle of travelling overseas will be the best treat for us. What's more, the additional bonus of USS tickets will sure make our kids laugh from Singapore to Sentosa😛
Will we be the lucky family? Hope our lucky star shine on us🌟

Wow..it looks nice! I think I haven't been there for a decade or so..Wondering is Daimaru still there? It will be a great staycation if can win this for my girl's 5th birthday present happening in Oct. Both children will be delighted to have a family retreat and we can show them how clarke look like, at the same time it would be an awesome opportunity for me take a walk down memory lane....Cheers!

It'd be great to have a bonding time with my daughter before her sibling arrive early next year. A staycation will be a perfect opportunity to do so. The specially set-up kid's room will be a hit to her too :)

I would like to win this staycation because we'd not been able to go for a holiday this year due to my mum's illness. We'd always make it a point to go for out annual holiday to neighbouring countries to expose my 4 year old. The specially set-up kid's room is very catchy and my boy will definitely loves it. We'd also never been to a staycation as my husband did not believe in staycation. He rather spend the money for a getaway out of Singapore. With this win, I can prove him wrong!

Vincent Lee said...

wow this is cool, this looks like a really great place to bring the family

blessedone said...

Haven't got a chance to bring the kiddos out for a nice holiday this year except for a Bintan trip. hope to win this staycation as a birthday gift for myself and bring them along to celebrate with me in November! This would be our very first family staycation in Singapore in such a cool and fun hotel! Hope to make a mark in our lives and add more memories for ourselves each year! May this Birthday be an even more special one for me please ����

We have not been on an overseas trip since the birth of our daughter. And it seems daunting to bring a toddler along on an overseas trip. A staycation would be great for us to spend time together with the extended family.

This is a fantastic staycation for 3 children (12, 12, 10) and me (single father).

I hope I will be picked and this will be the best birthday present for my daughter whose birthday is in month of October (17 Oct to be exact). Her twin koko can share the joy and we all can have a great family time together.

My son's 7th birthday is coming up on 16th October, Sunday. So, winning this staycation would be the best birthday present for him as he can get to enjoy himself and have some fun just before the exams start.

Our family has been under a lot of stress lately as well. I was let go at work, my 2 kids were down with stomach flu plus my son has to face ongoing medical appointments for his speech and learning difficulties. Hence, this staycation would be an awesome opportunity for our family to relax, recharge and spend some quality time to create beautiful memories together.

taya said...

in some desperate need to have a staycation.. esp after mugging for PSLE with my daughter. LOL.

We are in need of pampering ourselves with yummy food (free ice cream for her!) and lazing at the poolside, do in nothing. yup, tat is what I hope to achieve.

A staycation is the best as I need not worry about travel insurance, overweight luggage, missed connections etc.

Please chose me!

ChristineK said...

Wow, what a fantastic staycation for coming year end school holidays, it will be a dream come true for both my cheeky boys (well, parents as well) if we are lucky to win it. Pray hard Lady luck is with us, thanks!

Hope to win the staycation as our family of 4 has not been on any staycation in Singapore. The kid-themed room is definitely a plus point for the kids' first experience of staycation if we win it. They will learn that a staycation in Singapore can be as good as a short holiday in Malaysia.

Hubby always try to take time out from his work and bring us for a vacation during every year end. However, this year, he is promoted and he has to shoulder more responsibilities resulting in more overseas business trips, and is often away from home.

This year, he is not able to bring us out for a vacation due to work committments. Despite our disappointment, the family supports the only man of the household in his career pursuits. In view of this, I hope to win this one night stay cum USS admissions for the four of us (just nice for us with 2 children) so that we can have a short getaway away from home, in a nice hotel setup together with a good family outing at USS.

As a stay at home mother, one of my "KPIs" is to ensure family cohesion. By winning this giveaway, I hope the family can have some good bonding time together despite that we are unable to go for a vacation. At the end of the day, it is does not matter where you go, near or far, but a matter of who you go with. I am sure the family will be elated if I were to be bestowed with this giveaway.

I definitely hope I can win this for my daughter's birthday as a celebration. Can't wait to see the joy in her face when I tell her this!

I wish to win this "funtastic" giveaway as a reward to my children. Children love hotels and the treat is even better with the USS admissions!. My children had done well in their own interests which spans from music to the arts. As a non-typical parent, I support their non-academic pursuits and I am glad that they have done well. I hope to reward them for their achievements by winning this giveaway, encouraging them in their pursuits.

1. LIKED Swissotel Merchant Court's Facebook page.
2. This giveaway looks too awesome to be true! Wonderful rooms (, kids and parents dream (thoughtful), 50% off 2nd room (good things are meant to be shared with family), USS tickets (wow!), guaranteed late checkout (great!), next to Singapore River and near Chinatown area where we can really explore the area like a tourist. Would love to dine at the Ellenborough Market Cafe too for the famed Durian Pengat as my boy adores Durian!
3. Really hope to win this fantabulous getaway! Thank you Cheekiemonkies...
