Family yoga, bubble tea making: Capella launches experiential staycay activities
There’s more to experience on a staycation at Capella Singapore than just lounging by the pool.
With staycations being our only option for a holiday at the moment, local hotels are wooing guests with a host of attractive packages that offer more than just a bed and bath for a night or two. Instead, hotels are ramping up their offerings with exciting activities that promise to be fun for the whole family.
At Capella Singapore, the resort’s Capella Culturist team has launched a series of programmes and activities centred around heritage, arts, gastronomy and wellness.
Keeping the kids entertained throughout the stay is a host of family-friendly activities. These include scavenger hunts, canvas painting and a Peranakan pattern handicraft workshop. Budding chefs can take part in the Little Stars Culinary Workshop, which offers a choice between making cake pops or decorating cookies and cupcakes.
On Sundays, families can also join the Revitalising Yoga Class, led by a resident yoga expert.
Specially tailored to foodies, Capella is also offering a unique Build Your Own Boba class, where guests can make their own cup of delicious brown sugar bubble milk tea, complete with the hotel's own bespoke Navegante tea.
There’s also a Rum Appreciation session, where the team at Bob’s Bar will showcase the age-old history of rum, its importance to seafarers, and introduce the spirit’s distinctive characteristics.
The new programmes also allow guests to delve deeper into the property's rich history.
The Heritage and Art Tour takes guests around the majestic bungalows built in the 1880s for British officers of the Royal Artillery, highlighting the riveting stories behind the art pieces displayed throughout the resort as well as the five heritage trees within the resort’s compound that are over 100 years old.
Led by the floral craftsmen that have overseen the arrangements for countless Capella Singapore weddings, the Floral Styling Workshop takes guests through the basics of creating the ideal bouquet.
Arjay Pamintuan, Capella Culturist at Capella Singapore, shared: “As guests are spending more time on property during their stay, we wanted to create a holistic and comprehensive programme of activities that would allow them to try something new every day.
“Together with my colleagues, we’ve ensured that each activity encapsulates the unparalleled Capella Hospitality and serves to truly make our guests’ stay unforgettable.”
