Firstly, thank you to M Social Hotel for the lovely media invite for my husband and I. We celebrated my husband’s birthday together and this stay was meaningful for us. M Social is a small but mighty design focused hotel along the Roberston Quay that offer travellers a fresh, fun and distinctively unique experience. The boutique hotel is under the Millennium Group. Every corner of the hotel is packed with personality as it is designed by Interior Design Genius – Philppe Starck.
Check out my 1-minute video showing around M Social Hotel.
The hotel has a total of 293 rooms with the following room categories:
• Alcove Cosy (19 sqm)
• Alcove Terrace (19 sqm + 4 sqm terrace)
• Loft Gallery (22 sqm)
• Loft Premier (22 sqm)
• Loft Terrace(22 sqm + 4 sqm terrace)
We traveled there by Grab but the hotel is easily accessible by Chinatown, Outram Park, or Tiong Bahru. In fact, at the end of the staycation, we took a nearby bus to Somerset and it only took us 15 minutes. After we check-in, before all our workshops, we even walked over to Great World City which is along Roberston Quay, which was just a 20 minutes walk away. The hotel is definitely at a very accessible location.
As you walk around the hotel, you can definitely see the influences of Philppe Starck’s work from the lift lobby, elevator to even the corridors of the rooms.
Loft Premier Room
The shower is an open concept but fret not, you can use the dial to adjust the blinds within the glass panel itself (which left me super fascinated) for some privacy. Basic toiletries, hair dryer, hand sanitizer, and spare masks were also provided.
If I had to pick on the room, I would say that there is a lack of power sockets in the room which makes it a little inconvenient as I plucked in the kettle next to the coffee machine. There were sufficient power socks by the bedside should you need to charge your phones by your side when you sleep.
The gym is fairly compact but it still comes adequately furnished with the weights, treadmills, bikes and a bench. The swimming pool is rather narrow so I cannot imagine if there are more than 2 guests swimming at the same time. The pool at night does look more romantic so if you do no mind a night swim, definitely can consider coming down at night. There is also a washing machine and dryer nearby the swimming pool.
To enter the gym and swimming pool, you do need to collect the key from the hotel concierge / lobby. Advance booking is necessary for both gym and pool. It is advisable to book a time immediately when you check-in as slots are limited.
Staycation Value Packages
Dollop Automat Package
With the rise of self-photo studio popping up everywhere, M Social brought this service right to the hotel where hotel guests get to have their day captured in vibrant colour or classic black and white photos. M Social and Dollop Automat are collaborating during this very special time of the year to make your staycation something to remember.
Unlimited shots for 15 minutes’ self-photography session for two (2) persons. Four 4R Photo Prints will be printed as part of the package.
There is also supposedly a Dynamic SWIRL360 Video Experience as part of the package which unfortunately I did not explore.
For this package, it is a $30 top up on top of your room stay.
You can also learn about cocktail mixing from the hotel’s own Mixologist with a complimentary cocktail shaker. For this package, it is a $50 top up on top of your room stay.
For the workshop that I had, they sent the cocktail mixes to your room. It was a rather fun experience concocting our own cocktails. Of course, with a professional Mixologist, we would have learnt more from the cocktail experience so do check it out of this workshop will be done in the hotel room or at the bar.
Create your own perfume with Maison21 SG, with a complimentary bottle of perfume. Maison 21G offers 21% of perfume concentrate in each 21grams bottle – one of the highest in the industry. With such high perfume concentrate, the top up for this workship is truly a great deal not to miss.
Their scents are accords designed around iconic natural ingredients straight from the famous IFF Laboratoire Monique Rémy in Grasse, France. Most of their ingredients are extracted naturally.
For this package, it is a $45 top up on top of your room stay.
Beast and Butterflies Restaurant
Beast and Butterflies is an Asian fusion restaurant within the hotel space that is inspired by a dynamic gastronomic lifestyle juxtaposed with the backdrop of the Singapore River. The influence of French designer Phillip Starke can be seen even in the interior of the restaurant. We decided to dine at the hotel restaurant for the convenience and it is overlooking the beautiful Boat Quay which was scenic.
The breakfast was held at the same restaurant. We were given an order sheet to tick our breakfast set. I would say that their breakfast was one of the better ones that I had at other hotels which serves more of a continental breakfast. Definitely do consider getting their breakfast while having a staycation / vacation here at M Social Hotel!
Most of the rooms also has a flexible cancellation (by 2pm local hotel time two days prior to arrival to avoid a one-night charge).
