The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore has been running monthly flash sales of late to coincide with the hotel’s 25th anniversary. These take place on the 25th of each month, and while the January and February deals were good in and of themselves, this month’s is particularly lucrative.
That’s because the hotel is offering an upgrade to Club-level rooms, something rarely heard of at a Ritz-Carlton.
Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore Anniversary Flash Sale
The Ritz-Carlton Millenia’s flash sale runs from now till 1p.m on 26 March 2021. Guests who make a booking during this period for stays by 30 June 2021 will receive an automatic room upgrade as follows:
|Pay For||Stay In|
|Deluxe Kallang||Deluxe Marina|
|Grand Kallang||Club Deluxe Kallang|
|Deluxe Marina||Club Deluxe Marina|
|Deluxe Suite||Club Deluxe Suite|
|Premier Suite||Club Premier Suite|
All the non-suite rooms at the Ritz-Carlton Millenia are the same size at 51 sqm; they’re just on different floors with different views. The real difference comes from club lounge access.
To fully appreciate what’s going on, you need to understand that Ritz-Carlton guards its club lounges zealously. Even Marriott’s top-tier Ambassador members don’t get access (not that it matters here, since the Ritz-Carlton Millenia doesn’t participate in Marriott Bonvoy anyway), and you can forget about an elite upgrade.
There’s a reason why: the club lounge at the Ritz is an experience to remember. Think all-day champagne, five culinary presentations daily (breakfast, mid-day snacks, afternoon tea, evening canapes and desserts), and a complimentary limo drop-off to anywhere within the vicinity. Of course there’s also the fawning service you’d expect at the Ritz, jacked up to the next level.
That’s why it’s so surprising to see the Ritz-Carlton Millenia giving this room as an upgrade (I suppose the other way you could see this is that they’re giving a discount on club rooms; potayto, potahto).
For whatever reason, I can only find Club Deluxe Marina rooms on the Ritz-Carlton’s official website (use the code 4AV), which price from S$550++ per night (S$647 nett).
However, if you book on Trip.com, the Club Deluxe Kallang rooms will appear, which price slightly cheaper at S$624 nett. What’s more, you can stack this with your S$100 SRV and whatever other promo codes Trip.com is offering.
Since the Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore does not participate in Marriott Bonvoy, it doesn’t really matter through which channel you book.
As a reminder, you should book the room type you want. The upgrade is already factored into the price. In other words, don’t book a Grand Kallang expecting an upgrade to a Club Deluxe Kallang; the Club Deluxe Kallang is already pricing at what a Grand Kallang room should price at.
All reservations are strictly non-refundable, so be sure to confirm your plans before pulling the trigger.
Alternatives for Healthcare workers
If you’re a healthcare worker, however, you’ll want to cool your jets on this sale. That’s because you’re already entitled to a rate of “just” S$525++ (S$618 nett) for a club room, valid for both weekend and weekday stays (use the code HJH on the official website).
If you’re fine with a regular room, prices start at S$275++ (S$324 nett) per night.
This deal lasts for 25 hours, so you have a bit of time to think it through. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this could be the cheapest I’ve seen the Ritz-Carlton Millenia sell club rooms (edit: last month’s sale was still better if you’re willing to stay two nights, though), so if the club experience is on your bucket list, this could be the perfect opportunity.
