Great World Serviced Apartments ☆ Singapore

May 5, 2012

I stayed in Singapore to give birth our third child from the beginning of February, 2012 till the beginning of April, 2012. Our third child, son, was born on February 29, 2012. Since my stay was considered medical evacuation from Jakarta, my husband’s work paid for the stay. I could choose a place to stay from many options in Singapore, but I picked Great World Serviced Apartment and I am very happy with my decision. I learned about Great World Serviced Apartment through people I know who have stayed there in the past. In fact, it is one of the most popular serviced apartments in Singapore. I’ll list the reasons why I like Great World Serviced Apartments blow for those who might be interested.

第3児出産のために、ジャカルタを2月上旬に離れ、4月上旬までシンガポールで過ごしました。その際、グレイトワールドサービスアパートに滞在しました。医療目的で行ったため、運良く夫のオフィスが滞在費を負担してくれたので、こちらに滞在可能でした。どうやってグレイトワールドサービスアパートを知ったかというと、グレイトワールドサービスアパートに滞在した経験のある方がお勧めしてくれたからです。シンガポールには他にも沢山選択肢があるのですが、グレイトワールドサービスアパートにしてとても良かったと思います。実際、グレイトワールドサービスアパートはシンガポールのサービスアパートの中でも人気のある場所の様です。下にその理由をリストアップしましたので、ご興味があったら見てみて下さい。

Bed Rooms

Kitchen

Olympic Size Pool and Kids Pool

Kids Lounge Playroom

Arts and Craft Activity For Kids
Great World Serviced Apartment staff organizes a biweekly Arts and Craft Activity for child residents in the room next to a kids play zone on the 3rd floor. It is free of charge. You have to sign up early otherwise it can get fully booked and your child cannot get in. My girls loved the activities and it is one of the things I miss about living at the Great World!

The reasons why I liked staying at the Great World Serviced Apartment.

1. Convenience
The Great World Serviced Apartment is adjoined to the Great World City Shopping Center. There is a grocery store called “Cold Storage” on the basement of the Great World City Shopping Mall. It was really nice to be able to go down to the ground floor and walk over to the shopping center. I miss this convenience so much. The shopping mall has some nice shops such as Zara, Château de Sable (French Kids Clothing Brand), Starbucks, etc.

2. Location
It is centrally located. It is about 7 minute car ride from the mall to Orchard Road. Many people I met at Great World Serviced Apartment ended up finding a permanent residence near the Great World Serviced Apartment because they really liked living in this area. There is a river that runs right by the Great World City and you can walk along the river. There are many good restaurants along the river, too. We took a walk from our apartment to Clark Quay quite often during our stay. The path is very nice and in the evening many people jog or walk their dogs there.

3. Free Shuttle Bus Service to Orchard Road, China Town and City Hall
There is a Free Shuttle Bus that leaves from shopping mall to Lucky Plaza on Orchard every 30 minutes starting from 11:00 a.m. You can catch a free shuttle from the same Lucky Plaza back to Great World City and it is free for everyone to take it. The shuttle bus to China Town and City Hall leaves every hour from the Great World Shopping Center.

4. Kid Friendly
The indoor kids playroom as well as outdoor play ground were very nice and both of my children loved going there. My kids also loved going to the swimming pool as well. As I mentioned above, the Great World Serviced Apartment holds an arts and craft activity for young children. Every Friday is a movie night for children and a kids movie is shown (on a TV) in the Resident Lounge.

5. Good Services
If something breaks in the apartment, I could call the reception and they would arrange services to fix whatever the issues the apartment had. All the staff at the Great World Serviced Apartment was friendly.

Disclaimer: I wrote this based on my own experience and I am not paid by anyone to write the above.

1.便利
サービスアパートはグレイトワールドシティーショッピングモールと隣接しています。1階に降りて少し歩くとショッピングモールに行けるというのがとても便利です。地下にはコールドストレージというスーパーもあり、日本食品も結構手に入ります。麦茶までこちらで買えました。

2.立地条件
街の中心近くに位置しています。オーチャードまで車で約7分です。近くには川が流れており、川沿いの散歩道はクラークキーの方までも通っています。川沿いには沢山のレストランも並んでおり、とても素敵です。夕方になると、ジョギングする人や犬の散歩をする人でにぎわっています。

3.無料シャトルサービス
オーチャード、チャイナタウン、シティーホール行きの無料のシャトルバスサービスがショッピングモールから出ています。オーチャードのラッキープラザの前で停まるシャトルバスは、30分置きにグレイトワールドシティーから出ます。チャイナタウンとシティーホールへは一時間おきにシャトルバスが出ます。同じ場所からグレイトワールドシティーまでのシャトルバスに乗る事も可能で、誰でも無料で利用できます。

4.子供向け
キッズラウンジや遊び場が、狭いけれど充実していると思います。うちの上2人はキッズラウンジや遊び場が大好きでした。また子供向けの工作のアクティビティーを2週間に一回行ってくれ、無料で参加できます。毎週金曜日は映画の日になっており、子供向けの映画をラウンジのテレビで上映しています。

5.サービスの良さ
何か問題があるとすぐに修理に来てくれました。値段の割には結構何か壊れたりするのですが、クレームを出すとすぐに修理に来てくれました。またスタッフはとても親切でした。

    I looked at an apartment here that was for sale and wanted so very badly to buy it, but ended up at the east coast area instead. :”( I really like the Great World / River Valley area very much. Sighz~

    Hi Kaho,
    I like your blog about this serviced apartment. The photos look really good. I am also going to Singapore to give birth end of this year. And my parents are going to Singapore too. So my question is … if the guest bedroom has 2 single beds or a queen size bed or not? Thank you so much for your help in advance! Toni

      Toni, thanks for stopping by! There are different options. There are apartments with two single beds and some others with a queen size bed. It depends on the apartment types and sizes. I picked the apartment based on the bed sizes, too. You can see different types on their website and the size of beds are shown in the layout. I hope this was helpful.
