Captivating Views, Smart Designs, Vibrant Setting: Courtyard By Marriott Singapore Novena
Located in the bustling Novena area, Courtyard by Marriott Singapore Novena is perfect for those who want to experience life in a surburban district and still be close to all the action in the city centre and the shopping belt of Orchard Road.
Singapore’s first Courtyard-branded hotel, the 250-room hotel is conveniently located above Novena MRT Station and occupies levels 22 to 33 of Royal Square at Novena, which also houses restaurants, stores, offices and medical suites.
Check-in is done at its bright and breezy lobby on level 22 where Sky22, the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, Lobby Lounge and two meeting rooms are also located.
All-day dining restaurant Sky22
All rooms are 22sqm in size, offering views of the city or nature reserve greenery, and sport soothing tones of beige, brown and grey, with floor-to-ceiling windows that maximise natural light. Rooms come in five categories – Deluxe, Deluxe Greenery, Premier, Premier Skyline and Premier Corner – and some have Nespresso machines and sofas.
4 Things We ♥ About The Hotel
1. Sweeping Views
Possibly the tallest building in the Novena area, the hotel affords captivating views of the Novena neighbourhood and its surroundings, thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows in rooms and public spaces.
We were mesmerised by the cityscape views and our eye muscles definitely got a chance to relax while we focused far especially on the green areas that make up the MacRitchie Reservoir Park and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. On clear days, the skyscrapers of Johor Bahru can even be spotted.
2. Smartly Designed Rooms
Premier Skyline Room with a city view
Thanks to the clever use of space as well as full-length windows, our Premier Skyline Room felt spacious and cosy. We love the double-duty sliding doors for the open-concept bathroom and wardrobe, the luxe black and white marble bathroom countertop and the super comfy sofa by the window.
Our room came with a Nespresso machine plus capsules, along with Dilmah teas.
3. Value-For-Money Dining With A View
We salute chefs who go the extra mile to prove that healthy, wholesome food can by yummy. One such chef is Sky22’s Executive Chef John Chye who puts a creative and contemporary spin on local favourites.
Singapore Chilli Crab Pizza – an inventive spin on Singapore's national dish, chilli crab
Must-try a la carte house specialties include Chef Chye’s “Nasi Ulam” Wild Rice Salad, a colourful dish of charred octopus tossed with long beans, fire-roasted sweet potato, organic betel leaf, ginger flower, crushed peanut and toasted coconut; Singapore Chilli Crab Pizza, inspired by Singapore’s national dish of chilli crab; Sky22 Tiger Prawn Laksa Lemak, made luxe with tiger prawns and quail eggs; and Blue Swimmer Crab Popiah, which comes with sumptuous hand-picked blue swimmer crab (no less).
Served with charred tiger prawns and quail eggs, the Sky22 Tiger Prawn Laksa Lemak is an elevated version of laksa, a local favourite
The restaurant also serves a value-for-money Semi Buffet at $22++ from Monday to Friday and $30++ for dinner from Sunday to Thursday, which includes a buffet spread of salads, soups and desserts, plus a choice of main course item.
There’s also a Weekend Buffet at $38++ for lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and $48++ for dinner on Friday and Saturday.
Ask to be seated by the window to soak up the lovely views of the Novena neighbourhood and beyond while you dine.
4. Rooftop Vibes
If we’re not in our room when the sun is shining, we’re most likely working on our tan at the hotel’s rooftop infinity pool area on level 33 or just chilling out on one of the deck chairs and soaking up the commanding views.
The best views are from the rooftop pool area
But if you’re not into basking in the sun, we recommend being at the pool just before sunset to enjoy the golden hour, magical glow and cool evening breeze. That’s also when the views can be enjoyed with your favourite sundowner from rooftop bar Urbana, which opens from 5pm to 1am. Between 5pm to 8pm daily, there’s a 1-for-1 promo for all drinks. On Thursdays or “Thirstdays”, the 1-for-1 drinks promo runs from 5pm till 1am.
Novena's highest rooftop bar, Urbana serves 25 different cocktails, several boutique-style alcoholic brands and a choice selection of 40 wines from repubtable vineyards around the world
The hotel’s 24-hour Fitness Centre is located next to Urbana. To soak in more of the captivating views while burning off the calories, get moving on the treadmills, step machines or exercise bikes.
At the 24-hour Fitness Centre, you can sweat it out while enjoying sweeping views of the Novena vicinity
