ALBERT COURT VILLAGE HOTEL SINGAPORE – THE PLACE WHERE HERITAGE MEETS COMFORT

By

Hi there

I was at a “Photos make your Blogs go Pop!” workshop organized by Omy.sg & Panasonic just a week ago at Albert Court Village Hotel, had a blast and thought I might as well take this opportunity to talk about the hotel and also the place which holds a special place in my heart since I reached Singapore – Little India 🙂

Albert Court Village Hotel Singapore

Albert Court Village Hotel is a boutique hotel comprising restored pre-war shop houses with Straits Chinese carvings and motifs, located near the Art Museum, National Library, Art Schools and Little India where more cultural heritage beckons.

Although Albert Court Village Hotel is very near to my work place, I have yet to step in there for once. So I took this opportunity to see if I can find any new gems in this hotel and perhaps a new plan on my next staycation. 🙂

As the workshop include a little hands on session at the heart of Little India, I was actually quite excited about it, as I always have a soft spot of Little India area.

Whenever my overseas friends come to visit me, I will bring them there, especially to Mustafa to shop, its kind of like a little gem that showcase practically anything under the sun and I really love the spices and Indian products they have there, at really great price and the variety just make me go speechless…. 🙂

Back to Albert Court Village Hotel Singapore, from what I know, it has 201 rooms and suites available, which is suitable for both business and leisure traveller. One big draw over there, is how it is off the hustle and bustle of prime CBD area, yet it is accessible to many attractions.

If you are into the arty stuff, you will get to check out the Singapore Art Museum, Lasalle Art School, or just a stroll away, there are many good finds and eateries and cafes which will charm your day. It is also like a mini melting pot, with Hindu temple and Chinese temple and even Church nearby, just show you how Singapore has perfectly evolve into a nation of diverse multi culture.

As to the workshop, overall I feel it was both informative, practical and captivating, it is especially so, because they have chosen Albert Court Village Hotel to host the workshop, which I find is very cosy and the whole ambience was very laid back.

It sure doesn’t hurt that they have chosen Little India which is one of the few places why I love Singapore. So perhaps you can help me see if my blog does really improve after the workshop. 🙂
