Grab a table at Sandbox and enjoy views of the Andaman Sea while dining on classic comfort food and fresh seafood. We were instantly drawn to the relaxed and fun setting and our children couldn’t resist playing in the sand and exploring the grounds while we enjoyed a leisurely lunch. The stylish yet bohemian design has you feeling like you are in a tropical paradise but ensures you will be treated to Renaissance’s reliable five star service and high quality ingredients. Dishes range from fragrant pastas and juicy burgers to simple grilled options and plenty to share as a family. Favourite dishes included the Sesame Tuna Summer Rolls with Cucumber, Spring Onion, Coriander, Mint and Wasabi Mayo in a Rice Paper Wrap, the Spicy Clam Fettuccini using local Phuket Sweet Clams, Chili, Garlic and White Wine Sauce, the Angus Beef Burger with Bacon, Melted Cheddar, Mayonnaise, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion and Dill Pickle, the Steak Sandwich using Roast Rib Eye with BBQ Sauce Glaze, Grilled Onion, Emmental Cheese, Tomato, Rocket and Garlic Aioli, the Grilled Salmon Steak with Spinach, Peppers, Thai Asparagus, Mustard, Lemon and Dill Cream Sauce, the Honey Soy Glazed Chicken Poke Bowl with Glass Noodles, Carrot, Pickled Cucumber, Coriander, Sweet Corn, Edamame and Sesame Seeds, the "Loaded Dog" with Spiced Pork Sausage, Beef Bolognese, Peppers, Onions, Mozzarella, Avocado, Salsa and Pickled Jalapenos and the Char Grilled Pork Chop with Herb Buttered Potatoes, French Beans, Grilled Onion Gravy. Make sure to save room for dessert and pair your meal with a fresh coconut or fresh fruit shake. An ideal choice for sociable lunches or sunset dinners while staying in the Mai Khao area.

A safe family layover at Singapore Changi Airport with Aerotel Singapore

Travel has changed a lot since we were on our last International flight in March 2020, and with children we were naturally worried about the new process and hygiene standards throughout our journey. We were so happy to find Aerotel at Singapore Changi Airport for our long layover ensuring not only did our family stay safe and comfortable but we were ready for the next leg of our journey well fed and rested. As soon as we disembarked our plane a member of the Aerotel team were there to greet us at the gate. We did not have to line up in crowded groups or go to any transit zones but were transported by buggy immediately from gate to hotel check-in. The check-in process was quick and easy and before we knew it we were in the comfort of our family room ready for a good night’s sleep. The spacious room incorporated two large bedrooms, full bathroom, and cozy lounge. The room included a complimentary meal for each of us including Kid’s Meal options which were a huge hit with our children. When it was time for our flight the next morning, the lovely team gave us a wake-up call and escorted us by buggy directly to our gate. There is no safer way to have a layover than at Aerotel. The service was informative and helpful and being able to sleep, eat, and relax in the comfort of our room while waiting for our next flight was essential when travelling with young children. Highly recommended for families who are travelling through Singapore.
