Village Hotel Changi
1 Netheravon Road, tel: 6379-7111 THE PACKAGE Weekend Stay & Cycle Package, from $198.90 a night in a Superior Room. Includes buffet breakfast, onehour rental of two bicycles, and a pack of koi feed. WE TRIED IT “There was more than enough room for my family of four in the simple but spacious Executive Suite ($383.76). A single bed and a baby cot were set up in the living area for my two children, aged six years and seven months.
It would have been nice if I’d been given details on where to redeem the bicycle rental and koi feed upon check-in, but a quick question posed to the concierge soon solved that. The koi pond is on the sixth floor of the hotel, while the bicycles can be rented from Changi Cycling Services near the Changi Point Ferry Terminal, a few minutes’ walk from the hotel. My six-year-old had fun exploring on wheels while I followed on foot with the baby. Later on, we went to the hotel’s infinity pool, which has several kiddie floats and a beach ball; the kids were exhausted afterwards.
The buffet breakfast, though limited, catered well to children with cereals, eggs, yogurt, porridge and dim sum. This is a good staycation for families who don’t like to be cooped up in a room, and is a nice getaway from the city centre.”
