After 8 months and a $51 million worth of renos, the 158 guestrooms and suites of the Garden Wing have reopened. In addition to the Shangri-La perks of complimentary WiFi and a shuttle bus to Orchard Road, the Garden Wing offers more "resort-style" accommodations next to the pool and gardens, daily tai chi and koi fish feeding ceremonies, and a new Waterfall Cafe and al fresco dining area. If you opt for one of the Premier Balcony Suites, your balcony will even come complete with an outdoor jacuzzi and BBQ grill. Did somebody say spicy sambal stingray?!
We checked nightly prices for the new Garden Wing rooms and found them averaging $300 this summer. Of course it's going to be HOT in Singapore these few months, so you'll be thankful for the quick walk to the pool (or that private jacuzzi).
