Excellent rate: Capitol Kempinski breakfast-included staycation from $319 nett (with F&B credits)

Missed out on last month's Capitol Kempinski sale? Never fear- there's an even better deal available now.

Last month, Capitol Kempinski offered a Klook 6th Birthday Promo rate of just S$265 nett. That deal didn’t last too long, disappearing in a matter of hours as rooms were snapped up. 

But if you missed out on that, never fear. There’s an even better deal running right now, valid for stays all the way till 31 March 2021.

From 16-22 October 2020, the Capitol Kempinski is running an October Exclusive Offer which despite the name, is valid for stays up till 31 March 2021. 

This package includes:

  • 30% off Best Flexible Rate
  • Daily breakfast for 2 persons
  • S$38 nett dining credits
  • Complimentary early check-in/late check-out (subject to availability)
  • Free parking

All bookings are non-cancellable and non-refundable. You can only book this package through the link below; it won’t show up if you search via the regular homepage.

This rate starts from S$301++ for a Classic Room, but if you’re a GHA member (free-to-join), the price comes down to as low as S$270.90++ (S$319 nett) per night. 

Protip: login to your GHA account before doing a search

Considering all the inclusions, this is even better than what we saw last month. The Klook 6th Birthday Promo cost S$265 nett, but once you factored in breakfast the overall price increased to S$350 nett.

In contrast, the “real price” of the October Special is S$281 nett- significantly lower than anything else we’ve seen. Do note that it’s also possible to book higher category rooms with similar discounts, all the way up to a Stamford Suite. 

I’ve not looked at every last date in the calendar, but I managed to find quite a few dates in January 2021 with the S$270.90++ rate:

  • 18-19 Jan
  • 19-20 Jan
  • 20-21 Jan
  • 21-22 Jan
  • 25-26 Jan
  • 27-28 Jan
  • 28-29 Jan

If that’s too far out, I found a couple of dates in October 2020 with a S$283.50++ rate :

  • 20-21 Oct
  • 22-23 Oct

Basically, so long as the rate you find is cheaper than S$329++, you’ll do better than the previous Klook 6th Birthday sale (after factoring in the cost of breakfast and relevant F&B discounts/credits). 

What’s the staycation experience at the Capitol Kempinski like?

In a word, excellent. I still hold the Capitol Kempinski to be the best staycation experience I’ve had so far during Phase 2, and based on other reports in the Telegram Group, I’m not alone. The service is impeccable, the rooms are well-appointed, and the breakfast is so good you’ll want to go back again and again. 

The main Achilles heel for the property right now is its facilities. Both the pool and gym are undergoing renovations at the moment, and the temporary options are not quite the same- a penthouse pool in the neighboring Eden Residences, and a guest room temporarily converted into a fitness center.

Renovations were supposed to be completed by the end of September, although that timeline has slipped and there’s no official word yet on when the pool and gym will reopen. If this makes or breaks your staycation, it may be a safer bet to aim for January next year. 

Apart from that the rest of the staycation experience is lovely, and the current prices on offer simply sweeten the deal. 

Conclusion

Capitol Kempinski’s latest sale lets you book staycations up till March 2021, with the best prices coming in January 2021. These are among the lowest I’ve ever seen for this hotel, and a no-brainer if you’ve been hoping to stay here. 

Do remember to sign up for a free GHA account to enjoy further savings on the rate.

Great post as always, I am booking one definitely. Couple of questions if you don’t mind, I too got my GHA Black from CP and its expiring at Dec 2020, but I read somewhere they are extending it to Dec 2021 due to COVID, but its not reflecting on my dashboard, did yours got extended? Also in your previous review I didn’t saw any mentions about One Local Experience, are they available in Phase 2?

I had emailed GHA directly about status extension as I have the same issue and they said that “At the moment we are not extending tier status. We are continuing to watch Covid and travel restrictions”.

I wouldn’t count on your black status being valid beyond the original date in case you are banking on the double room upgrade.

Hello Aaron. Thank you for the super insightful posts. I have been trying to book this Kempinski stay thru the link given (Capitol Kempinski October Sale) but it does not work. All dates are unavailable. Does it mean the offer has been sold out? Could you please kindly help to recheck the link if it works at your side? Much thanks.
