The Tower Wing offers six accessible rooms. Additionally, there are three in the Garden Wing and one in the Valley Wing.

Activities / Excursions Outside the Resort

Orchids by Shangri-La is nestled amongst the hotel’s 15 acres of lush landscape and known as Singapore’s second Botanic Gardens. The seven-metre tall greenhouse sculpture was erected to mark the hotel’s 45th anniversary and showcases orchids as they vary through different seasons of the year. Hotel guests can follow a map to discover 25 different varieties of the country’s national flower.

 

Guests can reserve a private dinner for two to six guests inside The Orchid and enjoy a unique themed menu by the hotel’s talented chefs.

 

The hotel’s Dutch Pavillion was formerly known as Singapore’s first Dutch school in 1928. Newly refurbished while retaining the school’s original structure, the venue is now an idyllic setting for al-fresco dining with an outdoor grill kitchen.

Endorsement Quote

I visited Singapore in January and a family break here is the perfect way to combat winter blues. The themed rooms at the Shangri-La Hotel offer endless entertainment for the little ones and provide such fun immediately on arrival. The rooms, combined with dedicated kids’ zone, the oasis-esque swimming pool and delicious locally-inspired cuisine cements the resort’s status as a wonderful one-stop destination. Outside of the resort, a trip on the cable car to spend a day at Sentosa followed by the infamous night safari at Singapore Zoo and cocktails at Marina Bay are must-dos.
