What? No Bathtub!

I can't believe there is no bathtub in Royale Bintang! That was my first reaction when I inspected the studio suite we booked for a mini
birthday getaway for B last weekend. I was upset simply because I was really looking forward to using my new Lush bath products, which I had lovingly packed the night before the trip. To bring them all the way to our hotel only to find no bathtub for me to soak in my scented bath bombs and bubble bar slices, definitely put a damper on my excitement!

Don't get me wrong though for the bathroom was actually very lovely! It was beautifully decorated and equipped with luxurious bath products, spacious with relaxing warm lights and it was really cosy inside. The one thing missing was a bathtub! Smileys

I especially liked the usage of blinds for the bathroom. You can of course shut the blinds for privacy but it's also nice to have a peek inside the bath from the outside. It makes a great view especially if the bathroom is as beautiful as this one. Plus, if I get scared after watching a horror movie for instance, I can leave the blinds open while I'm inside so I won't feel so scared! I thought the faux wood blinds were a really cool addition to the overall look and feel of the bathroom. It made the room even cosier; adding both character and class to our suite. tepuktangan

Speaking of blinds, if you're in the market for new window blinds do stop by SelectBlinds.com. It is a great place to shop for all your window blinds needs. With a 150% price guarantee, you are guaranteed satisfaction with your purchase; knowing that you paid the lowest possible price for your custom made window coverings. If you happen to stumble upon the exact same custom window blinds or window shades for a lower price, Select Blinds will match that price. There's also an awesome 30% discount promotion on all orders right now so hop over today!

I'm feeling a little sleepy right now so I'll write more on B's birthday weekend later. This one here serves as a prelude to my relaxing weekend with the birthday boy. Stay tuned!

Stay at the Royale Bintang hotel at the Curve once, I don't know whether the same hotel or not....but it's true! There was no bathtub! And the room also abit small....but it's convenience because of the surrounding....foods, drinks & shopping.
Anyway, thanks for sharing.

Mariuca,  September 29, 2009 5:32 PM

Hi Robo! The room was lovely esp since we took the studio with a balcony, so that was really cool. My only complaint is the missing bathtub oh well, maybe next time we can consider the family suite. :)

Mariuca,  September 29, 2009 6:08 PM

Yup that’s another reason we chose the curve, go there every weekend but never got to really relax, shop and dine without having to rush back home right after know what I mean? I did my hair at a salon there oso, not so good la….don wan to go there again! Anyway yeahhhhhh Benji esp merajuk, refused to come out from their kitty condo when we opened the door he he!

Mariuca,  September 29, 2009 6:12 PM

Yeah la…why is EC doing this oso I donno…I mean they started as a free service so it’s not right to tax us halfway along the way…like Adgi we know we had to pay to advertise, right from the beginning so it’s okay… dis one suddenly changed rules when we’re already into EC, not fair!
