Hotels with high tea for an indulgent afternoon
Brunch may be trending these past two years, but I somehow always found high tea sessions at swish hotels more enticing. There’s just something so indulgent about sipping tea and munching on dainty bites, as I while away the afternoon. It also helps that high tea sets at hotels are always pretty to a tee! With the year coming to an end, there’s no better way for Maybank Cardmembers to catch up with their BFF than at these hotels with high tea.
1. Lobby Lounge (Crowne Plaza Changi Airport)

You and your BFF will also get a choice of coffee or Dilmah tea to go with your treats.
