It’s not every day that one goes to Brasserie Les Saveurs at The St. Regis Singapore for high tea 🙂
This afternoon, my parents and I took a trip down to town for our first high tea experience at the 6 star hotel’s contemporary French restaurant.
Perhaps what was most surprising was the price. It is relatively affordable when you compare the pricing of their afternoon tea set to other places in Singapore that offer high tea.
For high tea on a Sunday, it is S$53++ per person. It includes access to the buffet spread (sushi, fruit, patisserie, cheese, crepe, sorbet, etc), a three tier high tea set, and a pot of tea (lots of TWG options/The St. Regis tea blend).
On weekdays, the afternoon tea is slightly cheaper.
For S$36++ per person on a Sunday, you get to enjoy a pot of tea and a three tier high tea set, which is quite filling and delicious on its own. I highly recommend this one, and it’s what the three of us got.
The tier comes with one chocolate financier, one raisin scone, one plain scone, one madeleine, one foie gras sandwich, one smoked salmon blini, one lemon tart and one raspberry tart.
For the high tea at The St Regis Singapore, just note that there aren’t any ongoing card promotions. But you can still enjoy 50% off with Amex if two people dine for lunch or dinner (it excludes Sunday lunch as they do brunch instead). I recommend calling in advance to confirm as well as to make a reservation.
Another great thing is that there is complimentary parking, just remember to ask the host for it before leaving the hotel.
Because of the wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and quality, you will definitely get more bang for your buck at The St. Regis.
Just imagine reclining in your chair with a cup of tea in hand, while a pianist nearby serenades you with a rendition of La Vie en Rose and Beauty and the Beast.
And on the other side of the floor-to-ceiling windows, like a gentle geyser, a row of fountains steadily toss jets of water into the air. It is all very zen.
I love that the hotel itself is also full of vibrant Asian paintings and sculptures.
The attention to detail is everywhere.
In the women’s restroom was a beautiful and well-worn dark wooden console table.
Carved into its surface was a very picturesque and detailed image that seemed to tell a story. It showed a scenery as if from an elegant Chinese painting from a long ago dynasty.
All in all, the high tea experience at The St. Regis was wonderful. Although the clotted cream wasn’t as amazing as what you can get in the UK, I thoroughly enjoyed their scones! The raspberry and lemon tarts in the high tea were also very delectable and very well done indeed.
The St. Regis Singapore is such a nice hotel, I can’t wait to come back again for their quality high tea, as well as to try their lunch and dinner. And maybe a staycation (one day!)
