It's not often that French champagne is easier to come by than a glass of water. Not that I'm complaining. This is the case at my Sunday brunch at The Singapore Resort and Spa Sentosa's Terrace restaurant, where bottles of Moet are in excess supply and the phrase "free-flow" is a more than apt description.
The resort, which covers about 27ha, was the first to be built on the island of Sentosa 20 years ago. It's undergoing a refurbishment and renovation, which will be unveiled in 2015.
The lush pool and garden views from the Terrace make for a stunning backdrop to a wonderfully relaxing afternoon.
To say the selection of food is lavish would be an understatement. Deciding what to sample first is difficult.
On offer are an array of cheeses, cold meats, salads, vegetables, hot meals including everything from satays and curries to sashimi, sushi, breads and seafood.
Outside on the veranda is a barbecue station where the choices are just as extensive as those indoors.
Sweet tooths are spoiled for choice with a designated dessert room. You can decorate your own cupcake, sample the chocolate fondue pots or make your own ice-cream sundae.
And it doesn't end there.
Dessert smorgasbord overload is the best description of the choices: rows and rows of different flavoured sweet terrines, mini lemon meringues, various cheesecakes, chocolate cakes, chocolate truffles and nougats.
Sunday brunch starts at noon and runs until 3pm. Diners can enjoy unlimited servings of champagne and French wine for $S149 ($128).
An unlimited serving of French wine is $S129 a head, while a non-alcoholic beverage brunch is $S109 a head. Children aged five to 12 are $S79 each.
