Back in 2015 when Torch caught its first fire, we did consider long and hard if we should join Privilee. Now you must be thinking – what on earth is the relation between a 5-star membership to hotel pools, gyms and kid’s club, and an infamous tower fire in the marina? Well, sadly for us, … More Privilee : Worth it or not ?
