I checked out one of the newest hotels in Hong Kong, the Kerry Hotel, Hong Kong which is located in Hung Hom. This 5-star property is the third Kerry Hotel to be opened in the world by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts and it focuses on comfortable luxury. With an amazing view of the Victoria Harbour and located near to an MTR Station, the Kerry Hotel, Hong Kong is fast to become the hotel to watch out for in the coming years ahead.
The Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore (which is also the first Shangri-La Hotel in the world) unveiled a brand new Tower Wing with new F&B outlets and refurbished rooms back in May 2017. I checked out the hawker fare in the Lobby Lounge and fell in love with the authentic renditions of local hawker delights. Located slightly off Orchard Road, the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore is home to two other wings as well - the Garden Wing (which offers a lush tropical escape from the city) and the Valley Wing (which is opulent and even includes all-day Champagne). Check out my review of the Tower Wing Horizon Club Deluxe room at the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore!
When I visited Beijing last month in the summer, I stayed at the newly-built Hotel Jen Beijing which is a 5-star property located in the heart of Beijing's Guomao Central Business District (CBD). If you are thinking about getting from Singapore to Beijing, I highly recommend the SQ802 flight (check out my experience in Business Class HERE!) which will get you there by 2:40PM. One of the things that truly impressed me during my stay was the existence of a microbrewery within the hotel - these beers are then served in the Beersmith Gastropub ((鲜啤吧) which is connected to the main lobby of the Hotel Jen Beijing.
I visited Beijing in China for the first time last month where I flew down from SIN to PEK on Singapore Airlines in Business Class (check out my trip report on SQ802 HERE!). As one of the first passengers to disembark from the plane, I was able to clear immigration fairly quickly and got out of the airport in approximately 30 to 45 minutes. I then met with a representative from Hotel Jen Beijing (which has only quite recently opened) in the public area of the Beijing Capital International Airport before hopping onto a vehicle that took me directly to this newly-built property that is directly connected to the China World Complex.
The Tower Wing of the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore has only quite recently completed a massive refurbishment that saw the re-introduction of a newly-designed lobby, new restaurants (including the impressive NAMI which I was at a couple of weeks ago) and brand new rooms. During my recent stay at one of the brand new rooms in Tower Wing, I decided to check out the Lobby Lounge after hearing quite a bit about it.
The Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore has quite recently unveiled a refurbished Tower Wing with a striking new lobby, rooms, Horizon Club lounge as well as the introduction of a couple new dining concepts. The long-standing Japanese restaurant, Nadaman, which has been opened since 1984, has now been removed from the property and a brand new Japanese fine-dining restaurant, NAMI, is now open on Level 24 of the Tower Wing.
Taipei is slightly over four hours away from Singapore by plane and it offers some of the most delicious food and nicest people that I have ever met in my life. When I visited Taipei in April 2017, I caught flight BR226 from Singapore and I was seriously impressed by the Royal Laurel product on EVA Air - the seats on the 777-300ER were extremely spacious and personalisation of service is truly something to remember. I was also excited to check out the tallest hotel in Taipei city - the Shangri-La's Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Taipei which is famous for having the best view of Taipei 101 and the surrounding city.
The luxurious Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore has finally unveiled the brand new Tower Wing today on 16 May 2017 where guests will be able to experience a refreshed lobby, brand new rooms and suites, three new restaurant concepts as well as a revitalised Horizon Club lounge. Located in the heart of Orchard Road, the property is known for being an urban resort which is steeped in luxury and the finest quality.
When I visited Taipei earlier this month, I checked out EVA Air's famous Royal Laurel class from Singapore to Taipei and absolutely loved it - I am glad I chose it over the Singapore Airlines' Regional Business class! During my week-long stay in Taipei, I stayed at the Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Taipei for three nights and took the opportunity to check out the highly-acclaimed Japanese restaurant within the hotel - ibuki by Takagi Kazuo.
