Stay at the Shangri-La Singapore's renovated Tower Wing...

SINGAPORE’S Shangri-La hotel is an enclave of elegant excess at the top end of Orchard Road that regularly welcomes everyone from kings and queens to diplomats and politicians as well as discerning tourists in town to indulge in a spot of sightseeing.

The hotel’s Tower Wing – built in 1971, it’s an original part of the address celebrated as the world’s first Shangri-La hotel – has been refreshed during an eight-month renovation designed to turn the location into an “urban resort”.

The property’s general manager Reto Klauser says that while the ‘heartware’ remains distinctively Shangri-La the interiors have undergone a significant rejuvenation to reveal a refreshed lobby, brand new guestrooms and suites, three novel restaurants, and a revitalised club lounge.

“Visiting the renovated Shangri-La Hotel Singapore is like dropping in on a dear friend, but one who has just returned after a retreat,” he says.

“You will still find the resort-like, lush gardens, warm Asian hospitality and the timeless elegance that we are well-known but in addition to all that we have introduced new elements that smooth out the transition between work and life in the city so you feel completely comfortable.”

The Tower Wing’s 503 guest chambers –  including 360 deluxe rooms, 79 Horizon Club rooms, five one-bedroom suites, a handful of family-themed accommodations, and the regal 250sq/m Grand Suite – have been modernised with a luxurious new look.

The deluxe rooms are described as “elegant havens” and come complete with stylish furnishings, luxurious amenities, internet access, glass wardrobes, and floor-to- ceiling windows framing a choice of city or pool views.

Guests booking into the Horizon Club rooms enjoy access to the Horizon Club Lounge which, from its perch on level 24, delivers panoramas of the city skyline that are best enjoyed by sinking into an armchair placed to maximise the view.
