I have spent a lot of time in Singapore, transiting through Changi Airport, and I have always stayed at a hotel in the city.
But never again.
From now on, whether I'm in Singapore to get a good night's sleep between flights or for a longer stay, I will be checking into the Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Airport as this is one of the island country's best accommodation option.
Not only are the rooms comfortable and beautifully decorated, and the staff friendly and obliging, but the design of the whole property is something special.
Only the guest rooms, reception areas and eateries air-conditioned, with open but covered walkways connecting the public and private spaces.
These walkways are quiet and dark, with cool stone floors and lots of lush foliage, and there are lots of gurgling water features that make you feel like the temperature has dropped by a few degrees.
I love that you open the door to you suite, which is cool and calm, are you're immediately enveloped by that amazing equatorial heat.
And don't be put off if you're in Singapore as a tourist because there's a train station in Terminal Three's basement which lets you access the reliable train service that will have you in the heart of the city in just 20-ish minutes...and you don't have to go outside into the heat to catch the train.
Oh, and my favourite feature of the hotel, the swimming pool.
It's part garden, part water-hole, and there are so many quiet corners in this pond that you feel like you're there all on your own even when there's a crowd around.
If you have a few hours between flights, and want to have a good sleep and a nice meal, then don't bother looking anywhere else...just collect your bags and be in your hotel room only a couple of dozen minutes after getting off the plane.
