Eager to pamper your other half? It’s the season of giving after all, and it does no harm to bring him or her into a setting that inspires the celebration of love. Fravel whips up a list of five locations that will reignite your senses. How about a waterfront dining experience over award-winning French cuisine? Or would you rather have Italian food over a regal 19th Century setting? Love is in the air this holiday season…
1. Prive Grill
At Prive, you’re never deprived of the chance to pop the question. You might even get luckier than other locations, with an ambience so calm and soothing! Prive Grill specialises in French cuisine, whipped up to provide a modern twist. At Prive, you’re able to engage your senses with a visually appealing atmosphere, enhanced by a menu that will satisfy your taste buds no less. Grand Blotch Damask wallpaper and Flos lamps accompany the stunning marina view. Waterfront dining at its best!
We’ve seen countless weddings being held here, which comes as no surprise taking into account the old school landscape that exudes such a laid back, romantic charm. The colonial building was first built in 1918, and serves as a representative of distinct Italian culture. If you’re keen to dress the part for Christmas, Alkaff Mansion will be an ideal event partner for Christmas, to impress your significant other. With a backdrop so exquisite, #OOTDs will never disappoint!
Ginger-loving couples will find this the perfect hangout spot, over a set menu right in the heart of Singapore Botanic Gardens. It was realised simultaneously with the Ginger Garden’s development in 2000, and yes, they have kept it romantic, quiet and soothing for couples to have a good chat over dinner. Decades-old palm trees standing proud within the confines of the restaurant, and take a walk on the wild side after the hearty meal. A date night with a wild twist – just the way we like it to end the year right!
Flock to this restaurant like bees to pollen. And we’re sure that you and your partner will be back for more with this gastronomical treat located at Gardens by the Bay. If you require assistance, you will be whisked away in a buggy from the entrance of Gardens by the Bay, straight to Pollen for the ultimate “VIP” experience without forking out an extra cent! You need not order their Christmas menu to feel part of the festivities. Just hop out into Gardens by the Bay to join in the Christmas Wonderland. Feast like a beast, and feel like a princess. We’re sure that your significant other will walk away thoroughly impressed!
For an unfiltered, ionic experience, head on down to Salt Grill & Sky Bar on level 55 and 56 of ION Orchard. You can choose to be seated on level 55, which is nearer to the kitchen. Or venture one level up for a panoramic view of Orchard Road. Sample the truffle fries and beef fillet, and indulge in the stunning landscape helped on by Singapore’s rapid urbanization. We suggest that you book in advance, and secure a slot before sunset to benefit from day and night photo opportunities. You’ll be left wanting for more, because at Salt, Santa Claus is coming to town!
