Whilst 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. The 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.
