Singapore’s luxurious Shangri-La hotel is now welcoming guests into its newly-refurbished Tower Wing, complete with an upgraded lobby, revitalised guestrooms and suites, three new restaurants and a renovated Horizon Club lounge.
Any visit begins in the lobby where thousands of leaves attempt to emulate the feel of a tree canopy in what the hotel describes as an "urban resort"…
… while upstairs, 79 Horizon Club Deluxe Rooms and 360 Tower Wing Deluxe Rooms await – the former including access to the 24-hour Horizon Club lounge and the latter introducing floor-to-ceiling windows with city or pool views, modern furnishings and a warm colour palate, measuring up at 38 square metres:
Those are soon to be joined by family-themed rooms and suites, five one-bedroom suites and a 250-square metre Grand Suite, while the hotel’s new NAMI Restaurant and Bar serves up Japanese cuisine and ShopHouse plates up simple homemade sandwiches, salads and snacks, plus chocolates infused with local ingredients (and whisky).
But many travellers will gravitate towards the Lobby Lounge and its six regionally-inspired signature dishes: prawn noodle soup, Bak Chor Mee (minced meat with noodles), fish head bee hoon soup, Hainanese chicken rice, Katong laksa and chili crab with mantou…
… or could instead opt for High Tea with a Singaporean twist:
“Visiting the renovated Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore is like dropping in on a dear friend, but one who has just returned after a retreat,” boasts Shangri-La Singapore Vice President and General Manager, Reto Klauser at the re-opening of the Tower Wing.
Guests staying at the Shangri-La Singapore can earn and redeem points via the chain’s Golden Circle loyalty program, with mid-tier Jade cardholders enjoying free daily breakfast and space-available room upgrades and top-level Diamond members given guaranteed Horizon Club lounge access regardless of the room type they book.
However, entry-level Golden Circle members who book a Tower Wing Deluxe Room from now until July 31 2017 at the Best Available Rate will also receive free daily breakfast, with members at all tiers clocking up double Golden Circle reward points on the same bookings through the end of July.
