Birthday Weekend Surprise

Because J turned out to be the sweetest over the years (next to me), she kidnapped me for a weekend getaway at Amara Sanctuary Resort at Sentosa as a birthday surprise.

And because I always choose memories over material things, she knew it will definitely make me happy. And yes, it made a memorable 28th birthday!

Upon arrival, the lobby has this relaxing distinct smell which I then realized was ginger. The resort truly exudes that 5-star feel, from the door lock, to the view, to the amenities, to the food, to the pools, and even goes beyond the friendly staff.

A 2-days stay wouldn't be enough to experience the full rest and recreation you would ever want. Feels really good to feel special. I hope birthdays are spent every week.

Sunbathing at the Rooftop Infinity Pool just a few strides from our hotel room.

Most of the moments were spent swimming. Who would not be in awe at the breathtaking view? Everything's seen here, from the Merlion, to the roller coaster at the Universal Studios.

The dream pool where I did non-stop laps.

Waking up like a princess, having coffee with a view like this. Ahhh, life.

Shutters Restaurant where we wad the most romantic fine dining & sumptuous breakfast buffet.

Table for two.

What to eat? Well, the most interesting part, I ate most of them.

Looking for the Fine Dining surprise? Now, that's a different story altogether.
