The guest rooms at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore vary from wing to wing, which include the Tower Wing, Garden Wing and Valley Wing. Each features different décor and a different vibe, although most rooms have the same basic features. If you’re looking for the utmost in luxury and more personalized service stay in the Valley Wing, which has a separate hotel entrance and lobby. These rooms are the most posh of the bunch, oversized with elegant, timeless décor. Expect LCD TVs in bathrooms and private butler service for those in suites.
The Tower Wing has contemporary, comfortable rooms clad in warm colors. Each has a floor-to-ceiling view of either the city or the gorgeous pool; amenities include full-sized writing desks and marble bathrooms. And if you love to be near nature, then the Garden Wing is for you. The newly refurbished rooms are inspired by the great outdoors and feature wood floors and private balconies that overlook the hotel’s gardens.
On a recent visit, we holed up in a spacious Deluxe Room in the Valley Wing of the luxury Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel. It had primo views of the pool, a sitting area, a bathroom and dressing area, plus separate vanity and work areas. Décor highlights include a large crystal chandelier, high ceilings, crown molding and wood Chinese screens dividing the bedroom from the changing area. The room is dressed in subdued colors of blue, yellow, beige and brown — it all felt regal, almost Victorian. The sitting area has a plush couch, chair and coffee table with a large flat-screen TV; you’ll find a work desk with a bevy of hook-ups to plug in laptops and cell phone chargers. The mini-bar is fully stocked, too — you’ll find a tea pot, tea cups, glasses, a corkscrew and Westwood plateware. More extras include: a large safe and a flashlight, a shoe shine kit, an umbrella for Singapore's changing weather, an extra blanket and pillow, and a copy of James Hilton's Lost Horizon.
