Where to deliver in Singapore: Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital

    So this is where Fann Wong and Christopher Lee stayed when their son Zed was delivered in 2014.

    We had heard so much about the swanky suites at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital, we needed it to see it for ourselves.

    Granted, the hospital has several room categories – and we aren’t sure which one the celebrity couple enjoyed – but we were already swept away by its “basic” Junior suite.

    Like all wards here, it is fitted with a hotel-grade door and padding around its frame to allow new mums to recuperate in unparalleled privacy and comfort.

    Spanning 818 sq ft, the Junior suite is larger than a three-room HDB flat (about 700 sq ft).

    It has an adjoining living room (pictured) with plush sofa seats, a work desk, an in-room safe and a mini fridge.

    There’s even an outdoor terrace which overlooks the Thomson vicinity, where you can host your extended family and friends – or take a breather when they leave.

    The boutique-like environment is further enhanced by two LED TV sets that come with 29 channels and an in-house channel on maternity, a tablet for mobile Web surfing, and a minibar which comprises a Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine and various bottled drinks such as sparkling water and fruit juices.

    We were impressed by its grand bathroom, as well.

    It is fitted with a rain shower and a high-tech toilet with numerous features, such as automatic lid opening and seat heating, much like Japanese ones.

    Premium toiletries from Crabtree & Evelyn and an in-suite massage are also included to ensure you’re pampered like a queen.

    You can also choose your meals from a post-natal menu, which features dishes such as red dates and snakehead fish soup, and braised chicken with preserved cabbage.

    Dessert? How about papaya with white fungus and red dates? Hubby’s meals are also taken care of, and you can request for parking passes for two vehicles.

    You will also receive a gift set, which includes items such as a bottle warmer, storage milk container, and an organic baby swaddle.
