The Crowne Plaza Changi Airport has once again been voted as the World's Best Airport Hotel by international travellers in the World Airport Awards announced by Skytrax on 14 March 2017 at the Passenger Terminal Expo in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The 2017 awards for best airport hotels are based on nominations from international travellers from all around the world and it evaluates key performance indicators like guest experience, hotel service staff standards, cleanliness and comfort of rooms as well as accessibility between terminal and hotel.
With a total capacity of 563 rooms, Crowne Plaza Changi Airportt is poised to cater to an increasing number of visitors to Singapore as Changi Airport continues to grow as a key regional aviation hub with upcoming developments such as Terminal 4 and Jewel Changi Airport in the next few years, and with the tripartite collaboration between Singapore Tourism Board, Changi Airport Group and Royal Caribbean to bring in more fly-cruise tourists to Singapore.
The Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach is definitely the nicest Hotel Indigo property that I have been to up to date - check out my review of the Perada Suite now!
The Park Hyatt Hangzhou is one of the most beautiful and modern properties that I have ever stayed-in in China but the soft product is just not perfect.
W Guangzhou is the only W Hotel that I have been to with a Club Lounge and the space is truly stunning! Check out my experience is a ridiculously-large WOW Suite here!
The newly-renovated Coleman Suite at the Grand Park City Hall may just be the most understated suite in Singapore. Spoiler alert: it comes with a private steam room and outdoor Jacuzzi.
When I visited Shanghai from Singapore last year, I flew on Singapore Airlines' Business Class product and was pleasantly surprised by the crew on that flight. I spent a couple of nights in the Andaz Xintiandi, Shanghai before finally moving to the famous and incredibly opulent Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund for my final night in Shanghai. Check out my review of the Heritage Luxury River View Suite here in this heritage building!
The Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel is the only property under the Marriott portfolio in Johor Bahru, Malaysia and it offers great value for Marriott Bonvoy members! Check out my review of the Club Room as a Marriott Bonvoy Platinum Elite member.
As a DISCOVERY Loyalty Black Member, I was upgraded into a Pool Villa at the Alila Ubud which comes with expansive views of the valley beneath it. The food is excellent but the property certainly shows sign of age. Read my review to find out more!
It is definitely worth noting that the Andaz Xintiandi, Shanghai is the first Andaz-branded property to open in Asia and it located in an iconic entertainment area of downtown Shanghai. Even though the official check-in time at the property is 3:00PM, I did not face any trouble getting a room assigned to me at approximately 2:00PM. In fact, the hotel actually accorded me with an upgrade into a King Bed Deluxe (much like a Junior Suite and you will see why later) since I was celebrating my birthday there.
The InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay is quite possibly the most beautiful IHG property in Singapore. Opened in late 2017, this property is located in a quieter area of Singapore (which is quite popular amongst expats) and the rooms (albeit small) are luxuriously-furnished. When I stayed in a Club Riverview Studio King room last year, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I think it is safe to say that this property has the best Club InterContinental Lounge (with a proper cocktail menu) in the country.
The InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72 is the highest hotel in Hanoi. I stayed in one of the best suites at the InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72 during my visit - the Royal Suite is the second largest suite in the property (just one category below the Presidential Suite) and it features 148sqm of beautifully-appointed space.
