Luxury Hotels in Singapore

The island of Singapore is a popular destination for both leisure and business travel because of the tropical climate, exciting nightlife, incredible attractions and world class hotels. The region entails a group of 63 islands and the main island is interconnected to the continent by two bridge pathways, the Johor-Singapore Causeway and the Tuas Second Link. This city has a population of about five million residents and close to ten million business travelers and tourists visit annually. Without a doubt, Singapore is a highly developed world trade market and major vacation destination. While there are an abundance of lavish hotels to choose from, these are a few of the top luxury hotels in Singapore.

Sheraton Towers

The Sheraton Towers Singapore is a luxury hotel that is situated near Newton Metro Station and the prominent Orchard Road shopping and entertainment district. It is known for its exceptional service and is rated universally, by business clientele, as one of the top ten hotels. There is a free laundry and dry-cleaning for up to eight pieces daily per room and courtesy access to the Towers Executive Lounge that includes complimentary evening cocktails with hors d’oeuvres; plus, soft drinks, coffee and tea are available throughout the day. The fitness center offers a gym, pool and sauna for unwinding after a busy day.

Named after the famed Tang Dynasty Poet, the Li Bai Restaurant at the Sheraton Towers is well-known for its Cantonese gastronomy presented in the custom of grand Emperors. The tables are embellished with magnificent table settings of beautiful silver, jade and fine bone china. The ambiance of the restaurant is further accented by the décor of the exquisite paintings and poems. Singapore’s superchef Chung Yiu Ming creates his own delicious recipes that are out of this world and has even fashioned a special business lunch menu.

Ritz-Carlton, Millenia

Carefully chosen by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler as one of the finest places in the world to stay, Singapore’s Ritz-Carlton is a cozy retreat nuzzled in seven acres of lush garden at the core of one of the island’s most exciting areas, the Marina Centre. The hotel offers some of the largest plush guestrooms available on the island, and the rooms present striking views of the skyline or Marina Bay.

This gorgeous hotel was designed by the award winning architect Kevin Roche and is home to 4,200 pieces of contemporary art created by famous artists, such as Andy Warhol, Frank Stella and Dale Chihuly. The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia hotel has won many travel awards for specific features, such asthe relaxing spa, lavish landscaping that includes waterfalls around the guest pool and superb onsite dining options. The Shiraishi is one of the hotel’s beloved restaurants that serves old-style Japanese cuisine created by Singapore’s esteemed superchef Shiraishi Shinji.
