Kuoni booked us into the Shangri-la, Singapore and we think it was the perfect choice. We were in the Valley Wing and the room was large and well furnished, with a King size bed, settee, table, desk and dressing table. A seperate area included the wardrobes and had a seat - useful when changing shoes. The bathroom had a tub and a walk-in shower and double wash basins. There was also a seperate toilet. Internet access is complimentary
The Valley Wing is the quiet area of the hotel, with a reception and lounge area. When we arrived, a receptionist came with us to our room where she checked us in. My wife was presented with a beautiful Orchid. Our room price included breakfast which was taken in the Summit Room restauant. A buffet allowed the choice of fruit, cereals, etc and this was followed by a choice of main course from the extensive menu. The meal was beautifully, freshly prepared. The waiters were very attentive and remembered your name from the day before - nothing was too much trouble and they would serve the whole meal to you if you wished.
We were impressed by the complimentary delights served throughout the day in the Valley Wing Lobby Champagne Bar. Light snacks, afternoon tea, canapes as well as champage, wine and other drinks were provided. One the day we left, whilst sitting for a time awaiting our transfer, the waiter brought sandwiches, scones and cakes (high tea) - all with the hotel's compliments.
The hotel also has a Tower Wing. This is more of a holiday part of the hotel, with many children and a noisier restauant. We thought, allowing for the complimentary items we received, and the quiet ambience of the Valley Wing, our travel agent had made the best choice in what several local people said was the best hotel in Singapore. Although away from the noisier centre it was easy to get a bus or taxi nearby.
