Village Hotels by Far East Hospitality has launched the Village Important Kids (VIK) programme at its Albert Court, Bugis and Katong properties – offering guests a fun-filled family escapade that nurtures wonder and encourages young travellers to explore, play and enjoy. Redefining the Village experience through thoughtfully curated touchpoints, the hotel brings together travel’s greatest stories and endless thrills for the whole family.
Create timeless memories with your little ones as you embark on a family adventure and enjoy all that VIK programme has to offer. Ranging from arts and crafts to movie nights and local experiences, the whole family is guaranteed to be entertained for hours on end. In addition, families can look forward to participating in activities such as face painting, caricature, balloon sculpting, Nerf gun and more, which will be rotated among the three hotels every month. There is indeed no better way for families to make the most of their precious time together than to enjoy an unforgettable stay experience at Village Hotels.
An Interactive Check-in Experience for the Young Travellers
To welcome your little ones and make them feel like a VIP upon arrival, Village Hotels by Far East Hospitality has opened a VIK priority check-in counter – a kid-friendly feature dedicated to offering children between three and 12 years old the opportunity to check-in on behalf of the family. Located beside the guest check-in counters and accessible with a VIK ladder, the VIK programme unlocks a world of imagination where each child will receive an activity book; a “Discover Our Partners” list that provides a guide to over 20 places to Eat, Play, Explore like a Local; and S$40 nett Village Currency to enjoy at any stores listed on Village’s partners list. Guests will also be treated to a complimentary dessert.
Beyond the seamless check-in experience, the VIK programme goes the extra mile to create a comfortable environment for the family with an array of child-themed welcome amenities. These include children’s closet, hangers, bath toys and toiletries. In addition, a baby cot is available upon request for toddlers and infants.
Activities and Entertainment
During your stay, enjoy a host of playtivities and entertainment options specially tailored for the entire family. There is something for everyone – for hours of endless fun whether your little ones are playing on their own or accompanied by an adult.
Step back in time at the Village Cart which offers guests a glimpse into every Singaporean’s childhood. Boasting a wide variety of sweets and biscuits such as ice gems, wheel crackers, haw flakes and white rabbit candy, guests can look forward to indulging in a taste of the ‘80s with these old-school snacks.
There is also movie screening every night from 4pm to 6pm, where guests can curl up in comfort and unwind as a family. Complimentary drinks and snacks will be provided for all moviegoers.
