The Festive Season Begins: A Yacht-cation Escape

Nov 30 2020 - Blog

The year is finally coming to an end, and what better way to celebrate than by kicking off the festive season with a bang? Take a deep breath, the party is about to begin; say hello to an entire month of yacht-cations, festive menus, gift ideas, and more!

December is upon us, and it’s time to celebrate. This month, get ready for a long line-up of exciting activities. Strap in, things are about to get exciting!

Kickstart the month by embarking on a yacht-cation, painting the town red with one of our favourite restaurants’ festive menus, ticking your last-minute shopping off the list with some gift ideas, or top it all off by throwing a luxurious house party (for no more than five people, of course).

Escape reality on a yacht! With the holiday season comes undeniable crowds – even with social distancing in place. This month, why not escape the bustle and transport yourself to a whole new world out at sea?

Indeed, embarking on a yacht adventure might be just what the doctor ordered. Here are some of our top picks:

The Yacht Club: Private Yacht Charter

Live the lives of the rich and famous onboard one of The Yacht Club’s private charters, which will belong to you and you alone – if only just for a few hours. Go on an adventure to the Southern Islands, which are exclusively accessible only by private yacht cruises; where you can work on your sun-kissed tan, indulge in a picnic, or try your hand at kayaking.

If you wish, you can even top up a fee for a BBQ pit rental, complete with cooking service. Adrenaline seekers can choose to have a jet-ski in tow, or extend the trip to a 2D1N soirée. The overnight packages include two meals, free-flow soft drinks, a kayak, paddleboard, and floaties – perfect for a Christmas celebration, romantic date out on the water, or even a surprise proposal.

Orchard Hotel Singapore: Yacht-cation Escape

Orchard Hotel Singapore have taken staycations up a notch with the yacht-cation, where a 2D1N or 3D2N stay includes a 4-hour yacht experience.

Feel like royalty from start to end; enjoy a stay in the swanky Premier Suite which, comes with two separate entrances! The package also includes afternoon tea and set dinner that’s specially curated by Master Chef Lap Fai. The highlight, naturally, comes in the form of the yacht experience, where you’ll be able to spend four hours enjoying the sea breeze, riding the waves, sipping on sparkling wine, and indulging in a gourmet basket of food.

Plus, if you’re strapped for time, there’s no better way than to combine two activities into one! Fastest fingers first: book by 16th December 2020 to fully enjoy all the available benefits and privileges.

Ximula Charter Route: 2D1N Yacht-cation

And if you’ve fallen in love with the idea of being on a yacht, why restrict yourself to just four hours on board? This 2D1N Yacht-cation by Ximula allows you to enjoy two full days out at sea – on a private charter that’s exclusive to you and your guests.

Sprawl out at the sun deck, or relax in air-conditioned comfort in the indoor saloon. That’s not all: the front deck even has a ‘trampoline’ for guests to enjoy! Explore the Southern Islands and Eastern Coast of Singapore on the first day, before anchoring off Pulau Ubin. Get close to nature and revel in a magnificent sunset, before digging into dinner onboard. The next day, head to the Northern Islands and explore Seletar Island, one of Singapore’s hidden gems.

The package is inclusive of unlimited use of kayaks, paddleboard, and snorkelling equipment, meals onboard, free-flow soft and hot drinks, as well as fruits and snacks. It’s an all-in experience!

Royal Albatross: Sunset Yacht Experience

Now, this experience is one for the history books. Channel your inner Captain Jack Sparrow onboard the Royal Albatross, Asia’s only 22-sail 4-mast traditionally-rigged luxury tall ship. Marvel at the ship’s tall wooden masts; fun fact: the ship even appeared in the Hollywood movie, The Dark Knight!

Splash out in luxury as you venture out to sea with a welcome drink in hand, followed by a specially curated three-course menu. Watch as the skies light up in a kaleidoscope of colours once the sun begins to set – there’s really nothing quite like it. When the night falls, choose to relax in the Grand Salon, which has all the fixings for a grand night out at sea.
