Singapore: a room with a view

The Sky Lounge at the Hotel Peninsula Excelsior, SingaporeWhilst in Singapore recently, we spent a couple of comfortable nights in the Peninsula Excelsior Hotel. Unfortunately we weren’t staying in their executive class accommodation so I don’t have a special feature for you. However, we were able to meet with the charming Ms Corina Teo, who showed us around the Sky Lounge and then invited us for lunch in the hotel’s Coleman’s Cafe!

The Sky Lounge is “for the privileged few” and consists of a 4,000 square feet, two-level executive lounge with outdoor balconies and a spectacular 270-degree unobstructed view of the Marina Bay cityscape and skyline. It’s breathtaking. I can’t imagine how you could get a better view in the whole of Singapore.

View of Singapore's Marina Bay at nightThe views from some of the guest rooms are quite spectacular too. We had a corner room on the 16th floor and the views were superb! So much so, that one day we even got up at dawn to try to take views of Marina Bay at sunrise. Good views, yes, but you’re looking for something more perhaps?

If you are a Formula 1 fan, then have I got news for you! The Singapore Grand Prix will be held from 23-25 September 2011 and, you’ve guessed it, you’ll have a prime view of the race from the Sky Lounge – or indeed from your room if you get one on the Marina Bay (eastern) side of the building.

  1. Great post, being an avid F1 fan this is really exciting that I could get to watch from the comfort of this amazing room. How much is it per night for the top of the range rooms?

    My boss just went to Singapore he sent us a picture message from the Sky Lounge, we were most jealous! He said it was fantastic

    Never forget Marina Bay and the Bazaar that sells everything Singapore could offer.

  6. […] end, as you get to check in and out there too. Much more comfortable than queueing in reception. I wrote about the Sky Lounge before and am still of the opinion that the view from up there is possibly the best you could find in all […]
