  • 1 / 8 Staycation with kids at Swissotel Merchant Court

    Swissotel Merchant Court hotel has just completed an 18-month-long overhaul and it feels like a new property all over again. Young Parents deputy editor Elisa Chia and her family review its staycation package.

    Its signature Kids Room is filled with child-friendly fixtures and its decor is awash in a riot of colours that any young guests would approve of.

  • 2 / 8 In-room toys and books for kids

    During our stay, my four-year-old son busied himself with Fisher-Price toys, building blocks and colouring sets, while my nine-year-old daughter pored over The Usborne Book of Princess Stories

    The thoughtful hotel team must have arranged these according to age and gender.

  • 3 / 8 Wii video games for the kids

    And both kids went crazy over the Wii video games. 

    It was a challenge getting them to go out and explore nearby Clarke Quay, which came alive at night. We were spoilt for choice with the sheer number of dinner spots available.

  • 4 / 8 A child-friendly bathroom

    Colourful towels and bath curtains added a dash of cheer to the bathroom. Kids’ toiletries and a step-stool were provided.

  • 5 / 8 Two slides at the pool area

    The next morning, we tucked into an international buffet spread at the hotel’s Ellenborough Market Cafe before we hit the pool. 

    There are two water slides – one that goes down into the 1.5m deep pool, and another one into the 0.5m water-play area.

  • Enjoy late check-out
    7 / 8 Enjoy late check-out

    We had a great time and didn’t want to visit the Universal Studios Singapore theme park yet – our Family Fun Escape room package came with two adult and two child tickets, which we could use at a later date.

    Another perk: this promotion allows you to check out at 4pm, instead of the usual noon. Nice!
