The Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore, is a luxury 5 star hotel which has consistently been voted as one of the best hotels, not just in Singapore, but in the whole world!
There was also a ginormous closet and safe. Our luggage was also there, I'm not sure how it got up there before us, but it was wonderful not to have to wait around for it.
Next up was the Waterfall's 'Stufato di Pesce' a.k.a their Signature Seafood Stew. This is a tomato based stew with lobster, prawns, clams, mussels and fish. It was the best we've ever tasted.
Next on our tour was The Tower Wing, which, built in 1971, was the original section of the building. It has the most beautiful chandeliers, a grand sweeping staircase and massive columns of marble.
The one we were presented on arrival is known as 'Dendrobium by Shangri-La'. It's a long-lasting speciality orchid whose mother plant is Dendrobium by Paolo Sunshine and whose father plant is Dendrobium Pink Spider - a Singaporean hybrid. The Dendrobium by Shangri-La Singapore was named in commemoration of Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore's 35th anniversary. We were honoured to have been given something so special.

High tea is served daily between 2pm and 5pm. We decided to be a bit unconventional and go for a herbal tea, which was served from the most beautiful tea pot.
It was accompanied by a darling plate of sandwiches and cakes. It was the perfect afternoon snack.
