(Staycation) Hotel Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore

Hotel Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore is conveniently located in the heart of Katong, a historical area on the East Coast of Singapore, just opposite Parkway Parade Shopping Centre.

Guests have easy access to authentic local cuisine, shopping and recreation, such as Marine Parade and East Coast Food Centres, Katong and Joo Chiat Area, and East Coast Park, within walking distance.

This four-star hotel offers a home-away-from-home experience with 576 family-friendly and spacious guestrooms, lavishly designed with room types ranging from superior and deluxe rooms to various suites.

The facilities on have undergone upgrading and refurbishments, boasting a new poolside restaurant, a modern and spacious fitness centre, swimming pool, and new Deluxe Poolside Rooms that come with a semi-private balcony and direct access to the swimming pool.

This was where I spent a weekend –the new Deluxe Poolside Room on . The interior design is a seamless blend of modern sophistication –a stark contrast to the unassuming and conservative façade.

I can soooo lie in that comfy bed all day long!

The room comes with a wide screen LCD television, cable television and radio channels, as well as complimentary Internet access, both wireless and broadband.

See-through bathrooms are getting increasingly popular in modern hotel rooms! Possibly higher in demand, does this mean travellers are getting cheekier? Hee! You have the option of rolling down the blinds for the more privacy, but the one(s) outside the bathroom will have dominant control over it. #JustSoYouKnow

The spacious bathroom, too, exudes a soothing contemporary charm.

Toiletries are provided and replenished daily.


Sewing kit and shoe shine sponge

Bathrobes, iron and ironing board, bedroom slip-ons and safe box

Coffee and tea-making facilities

Self-controllable air-conditioning

The Deluxe Poolside Rooms come with direct access to the swimming pool, separated by a lockable soundproof glass door that reduces noise from the swimming pool and provides additional security.

Isn’t it nice to be able to step out of your room in your swimwear and head straight to the pool!

This is how the semi-private balcony looks like from the poolside.

I haven’t had the chance to go for a dip in the pool, but it sure looks enticing!

Roxy Function Room

There are two function rooms on that can be combined into 1 function room of 211 square metres, and six function rooms on level 3 that can be combined into 1 ballroom of 933 square metres.

There happened to be a jewellery showcase that day!

Fuel up at the buffet breakfast provided at FEAST@EAST. The extensive variety leaves one spoilt for choice.

There’s a live egg station where you can order eggs done your preferred way.

The hotel is rich in culture, and this is evident at the buffet spread. There’s a good mix of both Western and Asian breakfast favourites.

Ate too much? There’s always the gym. :)

Great for both leisure and business travellers, Hotel Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore is a mere 15 minutes away from Changi Airport. There’s complimentary shuttle service to and from Changi Airport from 6.30am to 2am daily, and also a 1 way shuttle service to Orchard on weekends and public holidays.
