Announcement: From this entry on I have decided that I will refer to Princess now as "My Hello Kitty".
Which Hello kitty?
This Hello Kitty.
Okay good that we've gotten that straightened out now on to my entry.
While we were in Sentosa a couple of weekends ago, Ming put us up at Capella. Ming didn't want to raise our expectations so all he did was say that it was "nice". It was of course a lot more than nice.
The frontage of the hotel is a colonial style building but right behind it is this beautiful modern looking resort.
With a beautiful infinity pool that overlooks the sea.
It's the kind of place where we each got a villa that looks like this.
When you first walk into the villa, you walk into a beautiful living room like this that just makes you hold your breath.
The curtains automatically open when you walk in and you hear classical music play in the background.
My Hello Kitty was quick to get comfortable.
In the next room, there is the bedroom.
And then a beautiful bathroom. What My Hello Kitty calls her "Dream bathroom" mainly because it was big and had separate sinks for a he and a she.
This is the one My Hello Kitty was using (which was packed with her make-up stuff later in the day).
And this is the one I was using (which wasn't much different from how it looked like later in the day).
For people who like to bathe in the open Tarzan-style, there is an outdoor shower and an outdoor bathtub to soak in too.
Then when you open the sliding doors leading to outside, you're met with a small pool and nice long chairs to rest on.
If I had more time at Capella you would've seen me wasting away many hours like this.
My Hello Kitty made it a point to dip in the pool. At least halfway.
It was luxurious but the beauty of it comes from the little small details they think of.
For example, on the nightstand beside the bed there is a drawer you can open that pulls up an LCD screen.
From this LCD screen touch screen you can control everything in the room from the lights, to the air-con and even set certain light scenes.
Like if I'm in the mood to be romantic I can push a button and the lights will dim to just the right level.
Then there are other things. Like how both in the living room and the bedroom there was a Bose sound system playing nice soothing classical music all the time.
Or even the toiletries they supply each room in these little bags with all you need. Everything from a toothbrush, mouthwash, toothpaste... you name it.
Or even the simplest things like the power plugs for you to charge your phones all neatly packed in a small box.
In the living room there's a really expensive looking coffee machine on a pantry that has everything from soft drinks to a bottle of wine.
Being at Capella was like a total escape out of Singapore. It didn't feel like Singapore at all. Just felt like you were in this really relaxing place.
Imagine living in a place like this. This is My Hello Kitty and I dressed up right before dinner.
And after dinner we come back to a place like this.
Life like that... is good.
If only every day was just like this :)
Too bad I can't afford it. Don't ask how much. Ming's condition for putting us all up was that we don't ever talk about how much it cost and just enjoy ourselves.
Thank you for the great treat Ming.
