After eight months of renovation, Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore’s iconic Garden Wing is now open as the country’s only urban resort. Located five minutes away from world renowned Orchard Road, the new Garden Wing has 158 nature-inspired guestrooms and suites. Nestled amidst 15 acres of lush tropical greenery, all Garden Wing rooms feature a large balcony with verdant views of Shangri-La’s famed gardens or the swimming pool. Each of the three Premier Balcony Suites offer the ultimate retreat with an outdoor Jacuzzi and a private barbecue grill on the large balcony. A new dining concept, Waterfall Café, and Singapore’s first CHI, The Spa will open in July and November 2012 respectively.
The new Garden Wing epitomises the best of resort-style hospitality. With its dedicated guest relations and housekeeping team, Garden Wing guests will enjoy a refreshing resort experience in the heart of cosmopolitan Singapore. While guests enjoy the tranquillity of the hotel’s cascading waterfalls and koi pond, business efficiency and urban pleasures are within immediate access. Services such as complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel, usage of the hotel’s vast meeting and banquet facilities as well as scheduled complimentary shuttle bus services to Orchard Road will appeal to both corporate and leisure travellers alike.
Inspiring holistic experiences are available exclusively for Garden Wing guests. Daily t’ai chi demonstrations by a teacher take place in the three-storey Garden Atrium from 7:30am to 8am. In the evenings, the resident koi master conducts a koi feeding ceremony at the waterfall at 5:45p.m.
First opened on 19 August 1978, Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore’s Garden Wing was famous for its bougainvillea-laden terraced balconies. In October 2011, the Garden Wing was closed for eight months in preparation for its rebirth as Singapore’s only urban resort. The S$66 million renovation includes the complete refitting of all the guestrooms and suites as well as the creation of Singapore’s first CHI spa and a new dining concept called Waterfall Café. A new event venue called The Deck is the perfect outdoor venue. The Garden Wing’s nature-inspired design is the work of Singapore-based Maps Design.
Garden Wing’s main design element is nature. Capitalising on its location amidst 15 acres of lush tropical gardens, the Garden Wing’s decoration incorporates environmental considerations. Solar panels provide heating for the Garden Wing’s water system while a water catchment facility helps to irrigate the gardens and prevent wastage of precious water. Electrical devices installed in all guestrooms, such as automated air conditioning sensors for the balcony door and the key card controlled lighting system, help to optimise energy consumption.
