 Singapore is well known for being the melting pot of Chinese, Indian, Malay, Peranakan and Eurasian cultures, and is a haven for foodies. Therefore when anyone travels to Singapore, they should be partaking in Singapore's extensively delicious diversity of dishes...

Hotel Clover is currently offering us a unique one-of-a-kind room-stay package that enables you to arrive in Singapore a food novice and leave armed with culinary skills to boast of.

From now until 31st October 2015, 3 Hotel Clover properties in Singapore (Hotel Clover Hong Kong Street, Hotel Clover The Arts and Hotel Clover Jalan Sultan) will offer guests a room-stay package that includes a hands-on cooking class in the home kitchen of one of Singapore’s most experienced tutors, Ruqxana Vasanwala of Cookery Magic. Don't you agree that sounds tempting?

Your experience will have you leaving your cozy Hotel Clover room in a special limo that will bring you to the eastern part of Singapore to where your cooking school is situated right in heart of
Siglap. You will be warmly enveloped by a sense of homeliness there while Ruqxana guides you on an epicurean adventure of the senses! 

The cooking class will last you 3-hours but you will be learning to cook 3 to 4 local dishes from scratch while enjoying the flavours and smells of Southeast Asian spices.

This will let you return home and wow your friends and family members of having learnt how to make some of Singapore’s best loved favorites such as Chicken Satay and Peanut Sauce, Nyonya Laksa noodles, Chilli Crab, Beef Rendang, Roti Prata and Chicken Curry, and even sweet treats like ondeh-ondeh!

Let's take a peek at some of the hotels in the Hotel Clover chain...

Exterior of Hotel Clover 5 Hong Kong Street....
First up is the Hotel Clover 5 Hong Kong Street, which is situated in the heart of Chinatown. It is a 55-room business hotel that gives us a modern and contemporary feel. 

The boutique space’s boxy exterior is layered over with a latticed frame and pretty motifs of clover leaves. The clover leaf will also be decorating the wall of the reception as you enter the building. 

The highlight of the hotel would be the rooftop lap pool that matches the pretty views of the CBD skyline, garden murals and a wall of vertical patchwork garden that quite literally reaches for the skies.

The design is a subtle mix of the serious, fun and quirky. The overall feel is then completed with the contemporary design accentuated with tasteful and historic touches

Kampong Glam,which is the name of the neighbourhood in which Hotel Clover 769 North Bridge Road is found has a rich history...

It was formed by the word ‘Kampong’, Malay for village, and ‘Glam’, taking after the glam tree that grows in the area; it was a prime settlement and trading hub where migrant Malays as well as the Bugis, the Javanese and Arabs settled down.

 It was also the home of Sultan Hussein (Singapore's first sultan), his family and his followers. 

Today, it is known for one of the most important and beautiful mosques in Singapore, Sultan Mosque, as well as a slew of fabric stores, shisha parlours, biryani eateries, ethnic Arab and Middle Eastern restaurants.
