On 16th May 2017, the Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore finally opened the long-awaited and highly anticipated Tower Wing.
The interiors of the hotel have experienced a significant refurbishment, with a sparkling new lobby, and new luxurious rooms and suites. In addition, the hotel has opened three novel restaurant concepts, and a revitalized club lounge on level 24 for Golden Circle members and those staying in the Horizon Club rooms, which offers stunning panoramas of the city skyline.
The lobby refresh includes a breathtaking ceiling art installation by renowned Japanese designer Hirotoshi Sawada, made of thousands of cascading stylised leaves, reminiscent of a Tree Canopy amidst a vibrant tropical oasis.
One of the most exciting additions to the Shangri-La Singapore however, is NAMI Restaurant and Bar on level 24, which provides guests with the art of fine Japanese dining with seamless omotenashi hospitality. Guests may reserve a seat at the counter and be prepared to witness first-hand the entire food preparation process right up to the plating and serving of the mouth-watering dishes.
Out on the terrace, Japanese tapas is on the menu, perfectly paired with a wide range of premium Japanese whisky and sake. Head Chef Akiba Shigeo has been appointed to be at the helm for both areas, who himself cooked at the royal wedding of Japan’s Prince Akishinomiya and Princess Kiko.
These are welcome changes to Shangri-La Singapore, and with many of their other hotels feeling quite tired these days, let’s hope they role out such fantastic changes at their other older properties!
