Singapore's Shangri-La Hotel unveils rejuvenated Tower Wing

The historic Tower Wing of Singapore's Shangri-La Hotel has re-opened following a significant renovation, revealing a refreshed lobby, brand new rooms and suites, three restaurant concepts and a revitalised club lounge.

In total, 503 guestrooms and suites have been completely refreshed by Japanese interior design firm Bond, who were tasked with retaining the “heartware” of the Shangri-La brand while bringing in modern conveniences, natural materials and a soothing colour palette to evoke a new sense of calm.

Guests can now stay in one of the 360 Tower Wing Deluxe Rooms, which are 38sq m (409sq ft), and include glass wardrobes, floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views. There are also 79 Horizon Club Deluxe Rooms, with access to a new exclusive Horizon Club Lounge; five one-bedroom suites; a 250sq m (2,700sq ft) grand suite; and several soon-to-open family rooms and suites, with themes such as Castle, Underwater, Safari, Treetop and Space.

The hotel lobby has been re-designed to resemble an indoor garden featuring a living wall of live plants, symbolising a mountain, and six 3D sculptures of children playing by the water fountain from a Korean artist named Yi Hwan Kwon. Renowned Japanese designer Hirotoshi Sawada has created a ceiling art installation formed of thousands of cascading stylised leaves, reminiscent of a Tree Canopy.

New food and beverage offerings include Shophouse by Shangri-La, a grab-and-go retail concept run in collaboration with six Singaporean street food hawker stalls; the Lobby Lounge, which serves local dishes; and the NAMI Restaurant and Bar, a Japanese fine dining restaurant.

As part of the hotel’s long-term development strategy, its Shangri-La Chi The Spa has also been revamped and moved next to the salon in the Garden Wing. Local wellness company Eu Yan Sang has collaborated on its offerings, such as herbal teas and remedies rooted in traditional Chinese medicine.

The Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore was founded in 1971, and subsequently became the inspiration for the 95 other luxury hotels and resorts in the hospitality group. The Tower Wing was the first edifice built, and this is the second renovation it has lived through, following a previous one in 1998.

“Visiting the renovated Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore is like dropping in on a dear friend, but one who has just returned after a retreat,” said Reto Klauser, vice president and general manager.

“You will still find the resort-like, lush gardens, warm Asian hospitality and the timeless elegance that we are well-known for. In addition to all that, we have introduced new elements that smooth out the transition between work and life in a city, so you feel completely comfortable whether you are residing on a business trip, an event or a family staycation.”
