Hotel Review: Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund (Heritage Luxury River View Suite)

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!

Hotel Review: Andaz Xintiandi, Shanghai (King Bed Deluxe) - First Andaz Property in Asia

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.

Hotel Review: InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay (Quayside Corner Suite) - Suite Life

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.

Hotel Review: HOSHINOYA Bali (Jalak) - Private and Luxurious Garden Pool Villa with Terrace in Ubud

My favourite way to get from Singapore to Bali is on Singapore Airlines Business Class (the 787-10 Dreamliner has a great regional Business Class product that is ahead of its competitors). Alternatively, you may consider flying on KLM’s 777-300ER Business Class product if that timing or price point suits you better. With all that being said, I usually fly in to DPS on SQ942 and there is usually only a short queue at immigration (just make sure you head to the line first before going to the bathroom). After I collected my bags, I was met with a private driver from the HOSHINOYA Bali who then escorted me to the car. Read my review of the Jalak Villa-type here in this luxurious Ubud property!
