Singapore Trip : Celebrating Love at The Daulat, Singapore

Our lovely trip to Singapore on last May was not planned at all, even the flight tickets were bought few days before the trip. Singapore was chosen because the country is near to Malaysia, it took only 1 hour by flight or few hours of driving, its a small country hence easy to navigate and most importantly they say - Singapore has the best transportation system.

We went by there by Tiger Air, for the cost & budgeting you can click here > Budget ke Singapore.
  USS was our main agenda in Singapore, read the tips here-> Tips ke USS, Singapore

Until we landed in Changi Airport, realization hit me. 
where are we going to stay??. 


So this is a story about how i met and fell in love with The Daulat, Singapore. We did not book any hotel for the trip at all. Lessons learn -> Book your hotels early in case of traveling to a famous place. Most of the hotels, hostels, even cheap dormitory are full house. I remember we went to about 15- 20 different type of hotels and ask for any room available but no. Its either - too expensive (1 room cost about 100 - 140 sgd per night), fully booked or the room is not to my liking.

We walked about few hours from the MRT station in Bugis until we reached Madras Street. Greeted with a warm welcome, the Mister inform us they have a vacant room. Alhamdulillah. I was jumping with joy. When I asked about the price - its at least 200 sgd per night. walaowei!. Expensive wor.

At first, I was feeling meh about this hotel. Because the rate simply does not match my wallet as I clearly told him my budget was 100 per night. Unlike other receptionists that we met during the hotels hunting, the staff was kind enough to bring us around the hotels showing us the rooms and the facilities that they have and explained to us why the price is slightly higher from the rest of the hotels. (Hint - He was using his persuading & marketing skills). And it works!.

Finally I agree to a rate of sgd 175  (inclusive of GST) per night for a deluxe room. That was the lowest he can offer. 

The room that we stayed for the first night (Deluxe Room)

Basically everything about the hotel is super duper awesome!. Let me tell you why.

The rooms : I have stayed in 2 different rooms during our stay, 1 in the ground floor (deluxe)while another one is in level 2 (superior). Tho it is not big, but it is comfy especially the bed. :) Highly recommended for those who wants to spent their honeymoon staying in the room not going out for 24 hours. Plus, every room is equipped with a Nespresso (Pixie Range) machine for coffee. Boring?. Want to watch TV and listen to music? Yes, they provide a flat screen smart TV & European audio brand Geneva for your iphone. Problem with that is me and my husband were not smart enough to use it. Oh and free high speed WIFI.

The Food & Drinks : There a small bar (no worries, no liquor involve) located nearby the receptionist counter where you can make your own coffee and also unlimited supply of soft drinks provided. For breakfast, you will be served with English breakfast,cereals, breads, milk,fresh juices, etc. I opt for sunny side up while hubs choose to eat scrambled egg.

Staff/ Receptionist: For the so called tourist, the staff there all of them were helpful and friendly. They even recommended the best roti canai to eat just at the back of the area, and show us the map and share some stories about Singapore, the people and even about the current issues. My Hubs even stayed up until 2 am talking to the mister.

Other Facilities: The Daulat has its own rooftop swimming pool with an underwater sound system. Its an open one whereby you can swim while watch the sky at night.  You can relax and probably do some sun bathing on the couch at the second floor. We were so lucky even the Mister gave us 2 bicycle to ride during our stays. This is complimentary from the hotel. It was fun roaming around the city at night with bicycle, we never such kind of experience that in Malaysia.We went to Haji Lane and ate dinner at Kampung Glam Cafe.

I really wish to have a house with the same design as The Daulat itself. Look for yourself, isn't it nice to have your own balcony like this?.

I know that the hotel might be a bit pricy (for backpackers) but it is worth the money.
my rating is : 4.8/5

Overall Comments:

I was so grateful that during our trip in Singapore we were blessed with so many kind hearted people who were willing to help us. The Indian guy in Madras Street for showing the MRT station, for a Chinese aunty who asked us to follow her (she was on her bike as well) to Haji Lane coz we were like lost puppy and to The Daulat staff, they give extra discount, give tips on places to go, just for us to have a memorable trip and a happy ones. If they stumble upon this article, Hugs N Kisses from Putrajaya :) 
Hurry, happy holiday :)
