Celebrate New Year’s Eve at one of these fabulous hotels – and then stay to recover!
With buffets going on across five of its restaurants (all starting from 7.30pm), plus a Belle Époque countdown party (think Golden Age glam) in the hotel lobby from 9.30pm, Grand Hyatt Singapore’s got a lot going on this New Year’s Eve. Choose from different buffet dinners (starting from $138 per adult with free-flow premium alcoholic beverages; prices are inclusive of entry to the Belle Époque party) at mezza9, StraitsKitchen, Pete’s Place and 10 Scotts restaurants, or an alfresco barbecue buffet by the pool ($98 per adult including alcohol, or $48 per child; doesn’t include Belle Époque entry). If you’d rather skip a sit-down dinner and head straight to the countdown party, single tickets are $88, and include a free flow of premium beverages such as Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque vintage champagne, live entertainment and a dessert extravaganza.
Say hello to 2017 with stunning skyline views from HI-SO, Sofitel So Singapore’s trendy rooftop pool bar. From 9pm to midnight, enjoy free-flow house spirits, beers, wines and a glass of champagne for $140, while you party to the DJ’s pulsating beats. Private cabanas (great for groups) are available for booking. We’d suggest dining downstairs beforehand at Xperience, which serves modern European cuisine with Asian influences. The restaurant’s special six-course set dinner menu ($128) will include such highlights as a poached prawn and caviar appetiser, and a main course of grass-fed beef tenderloin with tempura, and cod, carrot and saffron, along with Ruinart Champagne sorbet and other sweets. Diners can continue their celebrations upstairs at HI-SO with a bottle of champagne for $100.
The Morning After…
Get yourself sorted with loads of delectable items at W Singapore’s New Year’s Day Remix Brunch at The Kitchen Table restaurant. Highlights include a mezze spread, skirt steak with garlic, basil and sundried tomato, pork belly, barbecued lobster, and Thai beef and mango salad. It’s $178 with bubbly for adults (this will get you access to the pool, too!), and $48 to $78 for kids.
