Whether its a man or a hotel, the first impression matters. It can make or break the deal. You can either fall in love at first sight or build not-so-good pre-conceived notions. Thats why check-in is an important aspect of any hotel experience. My check-in at the Furama Riverfront Hotel in Singapore was a tedious two-hour saga. After a long flight (Malaysian Airlines via Kuala Lumpur in case your are wondering how did Singapore get so far) when we reached the hotel the front office executives told us that the room was not ready and we will be informed when its ready. It was quite understandable as the hotel check-in time is 2 PM and it was only 10 AM. After an hour another executive informed us that a pipe had burst in the hotel because of which as many as 30 rooms were not operational and since it might take long to fix it they are shifting few guests to another hotel. I agreed with a smile. The other hotel where the front office manager took us was also booked and after another 30 minutes of waiting when he showed us the room we realised it was one third the size of rooms at the Hotel Furama for which we had paid double the price. When we complained we were taken back to the Hotel Furama and given an upgrade. What happened to the burst pipe I don’t know. <a href="http://thehotelexplorer.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/furama-washbasin.jpg"><img class="alignleft size-medium wp-image-362" src="http://thehotelexplorer.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/furama-washbasin-225x
Hidden in the by-lanes of Calangute in South Goa, The Park takes you by surprise from the very moment you step in. Draped in a pristine white, this 30- room design hotel seems like a muse of someone who romances the Mediterranean. Bespoke art installations and curated furniture lend a striking character to this very modern looking hotel. Furnished with a generous splash of pop colors, the white stands out to create enough drama to hold your attention. The boho theme carries all through the interiors of the hotel with one-of-its kind, larger than life images of famous ‘hippies’ of Goa, photographed and styled to break the norms of usual aesthetics. The suites have a walk-in bath area with a luxurious bath-tub looking over the bed and separated by a silver sheer draped in-between to let the romance linger
