Shangri-La Singapore’s Tower Wing re-opens

by James Wilkinson

The popular Tower Wing at Shangri-La Hotel Singapore has re-opened after an extensive refurbishment.

The interiors have experienced a significant rejuvenation to reveal a refreshed lobby, brand new rooms and suites, three new restaurant concepts and a revitalised club lounge.

The Tower Wing’s 503 guestrooms and suites are completely refurbished with a luxurious new look. From the lobby, reach them through the stunning lift lobby embellished with authentic Peranakan touches. Guests may choose to stay in any of the 360 Tower Wing Deluxe Rooms, 79 Horizon Club Deluxe Rooms, soon to open family-themed rooms and suites, as well as five One-Bedroom Suites and the newly added 250 square metre Grand Suite.

The rejuvenated Tower Wing Deluxe Rooms are each a spacious 38 square metres, and come complete with stylish furnishings, luxurious amenities, internet access, glass wardrobes, floor-to-ceiling windows and a choice of city or pool views. Calm and inviting with a soothing colour palette, the new accommodations are elegant havens bedecked with modern conveniences.

Guests who book the Horizon Club Rooms will have access to the exclusive Horizon Club Lounge, up on level 24. Discover panoramas of the city skyline, best enjoyed by sinking into strategically placed armchairs that maximise the view. Guests can have a healthy snack, a pair of dinner shoes shined or answer emails at one of the mobile work stations.

One of the fresh food and beverage concepts opening in the Tower Wing includes the Lobby Lounge, which will showcase the best of Singapore favourites, including the six signature dishes of Fish Head Bee Hoon Soup, Prawn Noodle Soup, Bak Chor Mee, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Katong Laksa, and Chili Crab with Mantou.

Located beside the Lobby Lounge, ShopHouse is a grab-and-go retail concept offering freshly baked bread, homemade sandwiches, salads and snacks, as well as gourmet sauces, flavoured croissants, festive goodies, chocolates that are infused with local ingredients and whiskey, and 3D cakes.

An exciting addition to Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore’s dining experience is Nami Restaurant and Bar on level 24, the art of fine Japanese dining with seamless omotenashi hospitality. Guests may reserve a seat at the counter and be prepared to witness first-hand the entire food preparation process right up to the plating and serving of the mouth-watering dishes. Out on the terrace, Japanese tapas is on the menu, perfectly paired with a wide range of premium Japanese whisky and sake. Helming both areas is Head Chef Akiba Shigeo, who himself cooked at the royal wedding of Japan’s Prince Akishinomiya and Princess Kiko.
