Cocktail and Dinner Party at Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore

Thanks to Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore, I have the privilege to embark on a tour of the brand new level 4 facilities and a get together dinner with fellow bloggers.

Before I embarked on the quick tour, let me give you some quick facts of the hotel:

Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel, a hotel that is nestled in the heart of historical Katongl, a heritage area of East Coast of the city in Peranakan culture.

The hotel is just 15 minutes ride from Changi Airport, it is close to everything you need for an authentic and total Singapore travel experience for both leisure and business travelers. Easy access to the city, main tourist sites, shopping hubs, famous eateries and walking distance to the beach at East Coast Park. Not to mention, travelers can also enjoy free WiFi Internet throughout the Hotel.

You can locate the hotel at:
50 East Coast Road, Roxy Square
(Opposite Parkway Parade Shopping Centre)

Presenting to you the newly designed facilities on Level 4:

Checked in the room now.

Lets take a look at the 32sqm Deluxe Room. It's so spacious and cosy.

Did you notice something?

The interior design of the bathtub is made of glass, which means you can see through th bathtub. Wow, perfect for couple or newly weds ♥
But not to worry, there is curtain to be drawn out for privacy.

For more information, please visit

There is also a backdoor which can give us the direct access to swimming pool.

After a tiring day at work, I feel so good sitting down and relaxing by the poolside.

Enjoying the short moment of peace and forget everything about the stressful urban life.

The trio at the poolside.

Not only do we have a nice view of the swimming pool, we get to enjoy the food and beverage selections from breez

Having a glass of mocktail.

Wide selection of canap├ęs being served to us.

Here are some of the finger food we pick:

Cod Fish with Miso
Crab Cake with Mayo compote
Mini Wagyu Pate with Quail Egg on Toast

After the cocktail session, we proceed to Jia Wei Chinese Restaurant for our six-course dinner.

That's the camera shy chef giving his speech.

Time to dig in.

First course up is 4 different types of dim sum:

Deep-fried Seafood Roll with Mixed Fruit.
The roll is being brushed with a layer of wasabi on the top. Wow, that's quite a creative combination which result in pretty good taste. Thumb up.

Siew Mai with Cordyceps Flower.

The siew mai is delicious, one is definitely not enough for me. I'm a typical chinese who loves dim sum!!

Deep-fried Prawn Dumpling with Shark’s Fin.
I love the crispiness of the roll, yum yum!

Steamed Scallop Dumpling tastes so fresh.

2nd course up: Double Boiled Fish Maw Soup with Cordyceps Flower, Abalone and Conpoy.

Initially I thought that oh gosh, it's gonna taste like herbal soup with the look at it. But surprisely, it is not. The soup tastes incredibly good and I finished every sip of it.

Red wine to go along with our meal.

My favourite course: Peking Duck.

Wow, it looked so mouth-watering.

The peking duck's skin is so crispy and thin. Together with the wrapping, it tastes really scrumptious.

Deep-fried Butter Prawn.

By the look of it, you know it is delectable.
Are you already drooling seeing all the yummy food?

Dipping it into the sauce, the prawn meat is succulent.

Next up is Braised Beancurd with Luffa Melon, Crabmeat and Crab Roe.

The beancurd is indeed appetizing, I love the softness of the beancurd and the flavouring too. It's simply delicious.

We have Laksa as one of our course too.
I must say the laksa has spiced up my appetite. It's really hot and spicy! Wooh, gobbled myself with more water.

Last but not least, we have Durian Paste & Durian Cake Delight for dessert.

Dinner will not be complete without having dessert.

Gonna admit that I'm not really a durian person. I don't fancy eating durian due to the strong smell.
But however for the durian cake, the amount of durian in it is just right for me.

On the other hand, the durian paste taste is a little stronger than the cake. Nevertheless, I still managed to finish the cup of it.
The durian paste simply just melt when I put in my mouth.

Thanks William for the photo.

Once again, I will like to thank Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore for the kind invitation of arranging such a cosy get together with the bloggers. I have a great dinner and exploration round the hotel.
