Check In at Montigo

Their check in time is pretty late at about 3pm. But sometimes if the villa is ready, you may check in early, so perhaps you may come about 1.30pm and 2pm you can occupy your villa already. 🙂

Be prepared for the amazing view at the waiting lobby reception area.. You can even see Singapore cityscape from far.. Marina Bay Sands is the most obvious one.. LOL..

View from the lobby…

Can see Singapore far far away… 🙂

While you wait for your villa to be ready, you can have a lunch at Seafood Restaurant just below the waiting lobby area.
We love this woody wall feature on the reception area.

~ The 2nd storey basically is the bedroom area, there are 2 bedrooms: master bedroom with king size bed and common bedroom with two single beds. Master bedroom is having open-air concept bathroom with oversized bathtub.. Hmmm really enjoyed my own time on this bathtub with hot water.
