If you’re looking to get away from the hectic city life to look for a fun yet relaxing getaway, look no further then Citadines Rochor’s Mindful Mixology Weekender staycation package! Located in culturally vibrant Little India at Citadines Rochor Singapore, the 3D2N staycation package is only exclusively reserved for Ascott Star Rewards (ASR) members that includes specially curated activities for guests to unwind and relax themselves!

The staycation begins at the lobby where the hotel’s staff will get you checked in along with a welcome drink of cucumber water or a cup of Starbucks coffee at the DIY machine further down in the open lounge! The indoor gym, outdoor swimming pool, Resident’s Kitchen (where the mixology class will take place) are private meeting space are all on the 3rd floor as well! Upon entering their rooms, guests will find the Studio Executive room will comfortably fit two individuals in the 20 sqm space that features a comfortable queen-sized bed with a mini kitchen complete with basic cooking utensils, but before you opt to cook a meal in the room, just take a look out the window or do a quick search on your phone and you’ll be spoilt with the wide range of food options in the area!

The first activity involved an outdoor excursion around Little India and get to soak in the different sounds and sights as a local tour guide with a decade’s worth of experience will guide you though the winding streets while pointing out some interesting anecdotes about certain buildings and places of interest worth visiting in your free time! One of those places is the Singapore Gem Museum where guests will get to know more about the different kinds of diamonds and gemstones that are being produced all over the world and can even purchase some to take home as a souvenir!

Afterwards, its a quick walk back to the hotel’s Resident’s Kitchen where the Mindful Mixology Workshop will take place, conducted in conjunction with a mixologist from Bombay Saphire Gin. You’ll be taken on a step by step process on how to curate three different drinks of varying intensity, that showcases the versatility of the gin while ensuring that you stay hydrated- especially on a hot weekend!

For guests who are able to wake up early the next morning, they can take part in a guided one hour Restorative Yoga session at the Rooftop Pavillion for those who wish to detoxify their body after a late night out for drinks or just destress and have a calmer state of mind and quality sleep before heading back to work the next day.
