Rendezvous Hotel Singapore is located right in the heart of Singapore’s Art District, within walking distance to the National Museum and Singapore Art Museum (SAM). Thanks to the great folks at Rendezvous Hotel, we were invited for a staycation over the weekend at the newly renovated Club Room with access to the exclusive Club Rendezvous!
Rendezvous Hotel Singapore Facilities
We arrived early at Rendezvous at the start of our staycation and our room was not yet ready then (we usually arrive earlier to check out the premise and its vicinity). Nonetheless, we were warmly welcomed by Sabrina and Rasheda who brought us up to Club Rendezvous for drinks while we were checked in. For guests staying at Club Rooms, instead of queuing in the lobby of Rendezvous Hotel, you can enjoy the privacy of checking in at level 11 where Club Rendezvous is located. You can also do likewise for checking out.
After having some orange juice at Rendezvous Club, we decided to check out the facilities available at Rendezvous Hotel…
Elsewhere at level 1, you will be able to find the famous Straits Cafe, Courtyard, Rendezvous Gallery as well as the Library – Rendezvous Hotel’s Lobby Bar
The Library has a modern and chic design which makes it a great place for pre-dinner or post-dinner drinks. Check out the contemporary looking sofas within. Definitely an excellent venue to gather with your friends and buddies!
At the Courtyard, there was also a flea market ongoing…
As it was a sunny day, we decided to take a dip in the pool before checking out our room…
It was simply shiok, lazing in the pool on a hot sunny afternoon. In the evenings, when its much cooler, you can also opt to laze in the jacuzzi next to the pool (warm/hot water to be expected and yes, it’s all about lazing in the pool these days :P). The gym also overlooks the pool area…
Rendezvous Hotel Singapore Club Room
If you’re checking into the Club Room at Rendezvous Hotel, you’ll not only be able to enjoy welcome amenities and upgraded bathroom amenities, you’ll also be able to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from 6pm to 8pm daily. In addition, you can enjoy your breakfast there and even light finger foods from 2pm to 5pm. In a sense, you can enjoy makan all day at Club Rendezvous!
Thanks to Rasheda, we were welcomed with the fruit basket and more importantly (for Kate) the tea selection of kueh lapis (yay!), chocolates (yay!) and macaroons (double yay!).

Rendezvous Hotel Singapore Afternoon Tea
Included in your Weekend Getaway @ Rendezvous Hotel promotion is an afternoon tea worth $38++ per person. Initially, we thought it was just a high tea with cakes and coffee…we were wrong! IT WAS A FULL MEAL!!
Of course, the most popular dishes at Straits Cafe – the Laksa and Durian Pengat!
Somehow, we think that the pengat tastes much better than the puffs, cakes and crepes. If you think likewise, you can choose to do what we did – have a scoop of pengat with the puffs or crepes TOGETHER! Yum!
At the same time, Club Rendezvous offers a selection of dishes from 2pm to 5pm including mini burgers, egg and cheese prata, submarine roll and the bacon & egg focaccia.
Evening cocktails at Club Rendezvous
Just an hour after afternoon tea, we were back at Club Rendezvous for the evening cocktail (we were so stuffed!) and hors d’oeuvres!
Best part of dining at Club Rendezvous? The fantastic views you can enjoy!
Straits Cafe Sunday Brunch Buffet
On Sundays, you can also enjoy the Sunday Brunch Buffet at Straits Cafe. Although it’s not as “premium” as some of the Sunday Brunches that we have been to, but for $48++, the offerings were fairly decent. Our favourite? The ultra huge fresh oysters!
These are in addition to the famous laksa and durian pengat which are also available for Sunday Brunch. For more on what we ate, stay tune for our upcoming post covering Straits Cafe’s Sunday Brunch Buffet!
In and around Rendezvous Hotel Singapore
Besides the offerings within Rendezvous Hotel itself, you will be delighted to know that your staycation at Rendezvous Hotel, gives you an excellent base to check out the free museums in the vicinity (for Singaporeans and PRs only), including the National Museum and the Singapore Art Museum (SAM). The civic district is a short walk away while Cathay Cineplex offers cinematic options as well!
