Singapore and the Merlions Magical Cocktail Trail – Day Eight

Our first half of today is spent at Spa Botanica, at Sentosa Resort & Spa. We managed to take advantage of the April promotion, which consisted of a welcome foot massage, followed by a body scrub and massage, along with use of the spa gardens.  The foot massage and scrub felt great, don’t think I’ve ever been so scrubbed and clean in my life, but the massage just hurt all over!  I had tight spots I didn’t even know existed – I have a feeling I’m going to be very, very sore tomorrow.

After lathering up with mud and lounging in the pool, we follow the peacocks to lunch at The Garden, which is the spa’s own restaurant.  Here you can even design your own salad for lunch, which is what I did, and it was gorgeous.  There’s also an array of healthy juices and cocktails.  We meandered back to the hotel for our first swim in the hotel pool.  Despite being full of children, the water was warm and relaxing, and the cocktails at Siloso Beach Bar were lovely.

This afternoon we finally get lucky with the monkeys – a whole troupe of them gathers in the trees outside our room, and spying something of interest on one of the other floors above us, they make the leap to the balcony’s to explore further.  Hope the people didn’t leave their apartment doors open!

For a view of the world from Sentosa, we ascended the esclators to the Tiger Sky Tower.  The tower is 110 metres tall and affords a 360 degree view of Sentosa, the city skyline and the Straits of Singapore.  Thought it was a bit pricey for what you get – it would have been better if they included a voucher for the cocktail with the ticket or something.
Afterwards, we caught the monorail to Resorts World and didn’t get far before we spied Candylicious!  After buying up, the next stop was dinner and, clichéd as it is, it was hard to go past the Hard Rock Café.  As always the meals are great and the music is awesome.  And I got a photo of Tommy Lee’s pants from the Girls, Girls, Girls era.
Cocktail of the Day:  Blue Devil.
