Experience Singapore's transformation from a fishing village to a trading port and the global community it is today, all with a sunset view of the city. At the end of the day, wind down with your very own in-room bath spa experience drawn by The Clan Keeper while you sip on a warm cup of Cocoon Ritual Tea.
Learn the stories behind age-old family recipes such as Laksa, Curry Chicken and Char Kway Teow and cook up a heritage feast on the second morning with The Food Playground. A cultural culinary class you won’t want to miss!
