Festive Hotel, Resort World Staycation Review - Day 3

Festive Hotel, Resort World Staycation Review Day 3

As with all holidays, time seems to fly whenever you are having fun and we've came to the last day of our staycation at Festive Hotel, Resort World. =(

Sticky Bean was so used to 'going back to hotel room' all these while and was most reluctant to check out of the room. She insisted that she wants to go back to 'hotel room' to sleep. 
We managed to get a late check out at 1pm so we went for a swim at Hard Rock Hotel in the morning before going back to the room to wash up.

Check out was a breeze. In fact there's no need to queue at all. Just drop your hotel keys at the designated box and your're done! You can leave your luggage at the Festive Hotel Resort World concierge after checking out. If you drive, do remember to redeem your complimentary parking coupon at the concierge too.

And so we redeemed our parking coupon and proceeded to keep our barangs in the car before heading back to this Hongkong cafe just next to the Casino for brunch.

I love this bowl! Both the bowls are actually connected!

Heading to SEA Aquarium

This is when your selfie stick comes in handy!

finally reached the entrance of SEA Aquarium

For some reasons, Sticky Bean loves kissing this fish

Mesmerized by the size of this 'fish tank'

We love that the SEA Aquarium is indoor and air-conditioned after being in the heat and outdoors for the past 2 days. By Day 3, we're pretty exhausted actually.

finally entering the aquarium proper

giant octopus whose tentacles look yummy for some reasons

These jelly fishes have to be one of my favorites. They are so pretty to look at.

Look! colourful jellyfishes!

You have a huge viewing gallery right towards the end where some families will just rest there, have a little picnic to enjoy the scenic view.

found a little kids corner where they do colouring activities for kids

Look who we bumped into as we're about to leave??

It's Pikachu!! As it's a low peak period, we were lucky to be able to take photo with Pikachu as well!

Sticky Bean got to pick a little souvenir to wrap up our first staycation at Festive Hotel, Resort World.

SEA Aquarium Review
We love the huge variety of species at SEA Aquarium. The tanks were huge and majestic. One can spend a great deal of time just sitting and looking at the fishes swimming. But when you have a young child in tow who lose interest after a while, you spend most of your time chasing after her like we did. Unless a child is into marine animals if not you may like to think twice before investing in a ticket and bringing your child there.

My Festive Hotel, Resort World Staycation verdict: We had an excellent time at Festive Hotel, Resort World. We love the staycation. However the fact that the package came with admission tickets to 3 attractions means the itinerary was pretty packed for the full 3 days. Will be nice if they have a package which comes with just 1 attraction. We were so drained out at the end of our staycation at Festive Hotel Resort World. 
It was a blessed thing we stayed there from Wednesday to Friday hence we have the weekend to recover.
Our next try will be Equarious Hotel at Resort World and will definitely try to go with a staycation without the multi-attractions package.


  1. This is wonderful and I can say that you guys had an amazing trip. This hotel resort is perfect for a stay-cation. Big thanks for this.

  2. Riad Daria Suites & Spa Marrakech is a favorite Riad for all stars of cinema, and variety, for the discretion, the peaceful environment, discretion and security.

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.

We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

Alright …

8 Day 7 Night Okinawa Self-drive Trip with Kids Itinerary Preview via Taiwan

Travel period: 13 March to 20 March 2018

Flight: Singapore Airlines to Taiwan, Peach Airlines to Okinawa
Hotel: Okinawa Grand Mer Resort (Okinawa), Marine Piazza Hotel (Okinawa), Yomi Hotel (Taiwan)

Here's a preview of our 8 Day 7 Night Okinawa (Self-drive) - Taiwan Trip with kids itinerary.  I'll be creating an individual post for each day and include the link soon so that you can read up in detail. 
Some time ago, we've booked our air tickets to Taiwan during Singapore Airlines Promotion. Yes, we love Taiwan that much. But this time around, a friend from Taiwan suggested that we can pop by Okinawa too since it's a mere 1 hour plus flight away from Taiwan and the air tickets are pretty reasonable too.
So we took Singapore Airlines to Taiwan - Taoyuan airport and took Peach Airlines, a Japanese low-cost carrier (budget) airline to Okinawa. With all the checked-in baggage, we paid about SGD$200+ per pax for Peach Airlines.  The timing was perfect for us (almost), we landed at …
