Stepping into the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District, our family embarked on a remarkable staycation at Dao by Dorsett AMTD Singapore. What awaited us was more than just a getaway; it was an experience that transcended the conventional, offering us a thoughtfully crafted sanctuary that seamlessly combined luxury, sustainability, and heartfelt hospitality. As a family of four, we sought to create cherished and enjoyable moments together, and Dao exceeded our expectations in every way. From the moment we arrived to the day of our departure, the experience was nothing short of extraordinary. Join us as we recount our unforgettable family staycation at Dao by Dorsett AMTD Singapore.
Location and Accessibility: Dao by Dorsett AMTD Singapore is conveniently located near the Tanjong Pagar MRT station, providing easy access to the city’s commercial and tourist attractions. We were able to explore iconic destinations like Orchard Road, Marina Bay Sands, HarbourFront, Resorts World Sentosa, and Universal Studios Singapore with great ease. You can enjoy a complimentary shuttle service that will transport you to the city’s popular attractions. Details of the shuttle schedule will be provided during your check-in process.
Upon arrival, our check-in was smooth and efficient at the hotel’s reception located at Level 7, and the warm welcome we received from the staff immediately set the tone for our stay. The personalised service was evident from the get-go, and we were impressed by the attention to detail as they walked us through the various features of the hotel. The staff at Dao by Dorsett AMTD Singapore went above and beyond to ensure that our family felt right at home. They even provided us with a thoughtful welcome kit, which included a guide to the hotel’s facilities and the nearby attractions, helping us plan our stay with ease. This level of service and hospitality truly made us feel like valued guests throughout our time at the hotel.
Staying true to Dao by Dorsett AMTD Singapore’s commitment to creating an eco-conscious environment, we were excited to discover their unique Dao Plant Library during our visit.
This remarkable initiative, in collaboration with the local plant store, The Botanist and Her Thieves, truly stood out. Located in the lobby on level 7, it was a breath of fresh air—literally!
For us, this was more than just a concept; it was a hands-on experience. Whether you’re a first-time plant parent or a seasoned gardener, the Dao Plant Library offers a fantastic opportunity for guests to adopt and nurture their very own houseplant during their stay. The idea of bringing a little piece of greenery into our temporary home appealed to us. The best part was that the knowledgeable and friendly staff were always available to assist and guide us on selecting and caring for our chosen plant.
Two-Bedroom Executive Suite
Upon checking into our two-Bedroom Executive Suite at Dao by Dorsett AMTD Singapore, we were immediately struck by the thought and attention to detail that went into designing the space. The layout of the suite was impressive and perfectly suited to our family’s needs. It truly became our sanctuary during our stay.
The spacious living room was a standout feature, offering plenty of room for our family to relax and unwind. The comfortable furnishings and tasteful decor created an inviting atmosphere where we could bond, play games, or simply enjoy each other’s company. It was the ideal place to lounge after a day of exploring the city, and we often found ourselves sharing stories and laughter in this cosy space.
The separate dining area was another highlight, providing us with a dedicated place to enjoy meals together. It comfortably seated all four of us, making mealtimes an enjoyable family affair. Whether we were indulging in delicious takeout from the nearby restaurants or preparing our own homemade dishes in the well-equipped kitchen, this dining area became the backdrop for many cherished moments.
Speaking of the kitchen, it was a true gem. It was outfitted with modern appliances and a fine selection of kitchenware, including a Nespresso® coffee machine, electric kettle, oven, rice cooker, refrigerator, crockery and others. This allowed us the flexibility to cater to our dining preferences, whether we wanted a quick breakfast, a hearty dinner, or just a comforting cup of coffee. It felt like a home away from home, and we appreciated having the option to dine in whenever we pleased.
Plush king in the master bedroom
Twin-bedding at the second bedroom
The master bedroom featured a plush king-sized bed that felt like a cocoon of luxury. The moment we sank into the soft, inviting mattress, it was evident that we were in for a restful night. The sheer comfort and quality of the bedding made us eagerly anticipate bedtime, and we were not disappointed. It was a haven of tranquility, offering us the perfect respite after our daily adventures in the city.
The second bedroom was equally delightful, with a twin-sized bed that catered perfectly to the needs of our family. The comfortable bedding and thoughtfully designed layout ensured that our children had a cosy and restful place to lay their heads at night. It was a welcome sight after a day of sightseeing and exploration. We can also enjoy a refreshing shower in both the en-suite and common bathroom.
Furthermore, each suite is thoughtfully equipped with a comprehensive array of amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. These include complimentary Wi-Fi for seamless connectivity, a 49-inch Smart TV with an extensive selection of international cable and local channels for entertainment, an in-room safe for added security, and a convenient washer/dryer to cater to all our needs during our stay.
