Bob's Bar is one of those places I could chill out at forever. The seascapes are gorgeous, foliage lush, and even in the heat of the afternoon, is breezy enough to hang out. And because the Capella is so resort-like, the resident bar seems worlds apart from the bustling citystate. I can understand why so many people take staycations here. There's such a wonderful holiday vibe about this place!
A major perk of chilling out here: the peacocks, peahens and peachicks milling about, in quiet companionship with us cityfolk. They come up real close, especially if you have peanuts on hand, but don't worry, they aren't aggressive.
Even more adorable was this little family with triplet peachicks scampering along behind their parents.
The cocktails here are refreshing and cool. Clockwise from top: Virgin Bob's Fresh-Pressed Mojito ($19) with sugarcane, lime juice, organic mint; Windward Island Shake ($19) with orange juice, banana puree, vanilla honey and yoghurt; Painkiller Lite ($19) with fresh coconut water, orange and pineapple juices, and grated nutmeg; Fort Canning Spiced Soda ($19) with mango juice, angostura bitters, soda water and spice garden syrup
They heard we were celebrating a birthday, and comp-ed our Oreo Cheesecake, slathered in a yummy salted caramel sauce and topped with fresh blueberries and sugared pineapples.
