Ritz Carlton’s Chihuly Lounge is undeniably one of Singapore’s top enticing afternoon tea destination. The grandeur of the surroundings is matched by the glamor of the afternoon tea offerings. Chihuly Lounge never fails to amaze with their unusual and creative spread, which are sensationally executed. New varieties are presented with every change in season. In Summer 2013, one can look forward to inspiring savories and gorgeous cakes.
The buffet cost $52++ per pax which includes one beverage. You can have unlimited servings of teas, coffees and chocolate drinks with a $10 top up. I had strawberry yoghurt tea, which was pleasantly tart.

I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to Jena, for making W’s birthday such a memorable experience. When I made reservation, I did not mention anything about birthday celebration. While Jena walked us to our table, she heard me wishing W happy birthday. Halfway through our meal, Jena and her dedicated team came to our table with a cake, singing happy birthday song.
W was overjoyed! Thank you, Jena for the remarkable and exceptional service 🙂
Many thanks to the pianist and guitarist for the birthday song, as well as Anya for being such sweetie. Anya offered to pack the cake as she could see that we were stoned from stuffing ourselves.
Usually complimentary cakes are mediocre, but this blueberry mousse cake was absolutely lovely and moist.
I highly recommend celebrating birthdays here; you will be left feeling spoilt and important!
