In my last post, I shared about the fantastic Deluxe Room that we were staying in at Shangri-La Singapore’s Valley Wing. In this post, I will be sharing the much-awaited food & beverages that the Valley Wing has to offer. So let’s go~! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

Starting Off Our Stay with Alcohol~

If you have not read part 1 of my review, here is a quick recap of what our stay includes:

  • Breakfast in Summit Room / The Line
  • Daily afternoon tea at The Valley Wing Lobby Lounge
  • Daily evening canapes, and cocktails at the Champagne Bar

During our check-in, we were asked about our preferred breakfast, afternoon tea and canapes time slot. These are the timings for your reference, subject to changes:

Breakfast (60 mins per slot)

7.00 am – 8.00 am | 8.15 am – 9.15 am | 9.30 am – 10.30 am

Afternoon Tea (60 mins per slot)

2.00 pm – 3.00 pm | 3.15 pm – 4.15 pm

Evening Canapes (60 mins per slot)

4.45 pm – 5.45 pm | 6.00 pm – 7.00 pm

As you can see from the above, half of our day staying at the Valley Wing was probably spent on food. Haha! That is also the reason why we didn’t find a need to venture out of the hotel, as we were occupied with the daily food offerings from the Valley Wing. Especially when we were only staying for one night. |・ω・)

After our check-in, the staff asked if we wanted to start our stay with champagne since the Valley Wing Lounge is open for dine-in from 12 pm – 10.30 pm. In case you didn’t know, you can have free-flow alcohol at the lounge and many would be going for the hotel’s Veuve Clicquot champagne. So hubs and I were like, why not since we had all the time in the world? ヾ(*’▽’*)

You Mean There is Special Popcorn HERE?!

Once we got seated, hubs ordered Valley Wing’s version of the Singapore Sling while I had Mimosa. Mimosa was a drink I have been interested in trying out since I kept seeing someone I followed on Instagram drinking that. Haha! And let’s just say, I was a convert once I drank it. Besides the delicious-tasting Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel Singapore that got me drunk, this is probably my next favourite alcoholic drink right now. \(★ω★)/ And that is how for the rest of the stay, whenever it calls for a drink, it’s always a Mimosa order from me. ♡ ~(‘▽^人)

Accompanying our drink was some mixed nuts and popcorn. BUTTERSCOTCH popcorn to be exact. LIKE WHAT? None of the blogs I read mentioned this. Like why?! Is this food not special enough at the Valley Wing for anyone to talk about?! (¬_¬ ) I have never had butterscotch popcorn and I must say being served that to pair with our drink was rather interesting. I love the mixed nuts but the popcorn was the best. We should have asked for more to bring back to our room for movie night. (´・ᴗ・ ` )

An Exquisite Afternoon in the Summit Room

I love to dine in the Summit Room since there is a lot of natural light coming in from the full-length glass windows. Also helps that they make food photos look prettier. Anyway, babe finally ordered the hotel’s champagne while I continued to have my favourite mimosa.

Scones were served while we waited for our afternoon tea set to arrive. We also had an extra order of flat white for each of us. Well, let’s just say their alcoholic drinks are better than their coffee. Haha! (*/ω\) Pairing the scones with the butter was good BUT it was the apricot jam that was superbly nice.

Service was superbly prompt here. We had happily finished our top tray of sandwiches and a service staff came over to ask if we wanted more. Haha! Well, the sandwiches were DELICIOUS so we didn’t mind having another refill. The sweets were, on the other hand, quite normal. The ondeh-ondeh was the nicest of the lot. (´ ∀ ` *) Anyway out of all the sandwiches, my favourite was the smoked salmon since I love smoked salmon. Haha! But ALL the food served at the Valley Wing Afternoon Tea session tasted fantastic.

Sandwiches: Caramelised onion, tuna pesto & smoked salmon

Evening Canapes, More Food and More Drinking at Valley Wing!

We had our evening canapes in the Valley Wing Lounge, as it seems like the Summit Room and outdoors were both looking quite full. Not that we minded as we chose to sit at the big sofa area while doing people-watching. (≧◡≦)

I didn’t want to have too much alcohol as I was worried that the alcohol might get to me like how the Singapore Sling hit me last time, so I decided to go with a Lychee Mocktail while hubs went for the Mojito. Lychee tasted good BUT I still miss the mimosa. Hahaha! In the end, we still caved in for a glass of champagne and mimosa after we finished our evening canapes and were just chilling in the lounge. (´・ᴗ・ ` )

UNFORTUNATELY, I don’t remember the names of all the food we had for our evening canapes at the Valley Wing. Haha! Let’s just say they were all delicious, definitely better than the afternoon tea since they were all savoury items. (´• ω •`) ♡

Breakfast Time, the time when we see EVERYONE in Valley Wing (ᵔ◡ᵔ)

All thanks to its daily afternoon tea and evening canapes session, we have the chance to see some of the guests staying at the Valley Wing. Whenever we travel, we hardly see anyone around the resort compound and usually breakfast time is the time when EVERYONE appears. Similarly here at the Valley Wing, breakfast time is also the most crowded period in the Summit Room.

There is an assisted buffet at the side where you could have some simple pastries, cold dishes, fruits and cereals while waiting for your main dishes to arrive. It wasn’t obvious that it was an assisted buffet as no service staff was standing by when we approached the buffet. There was a sign at the buffet, just not obvious. But the service staff was all quick to respond once we started walking down the short buffet line, so all was good~! Anyway, we got some smoked salmon, turkey breasts as well as some pastries. I love the almond croissant as it reminded me of the ones from Tiong Bahru Bakery. (๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ

Every guest can order two mains. There is some MUST-ORDER food for breakfast at the Valley Wing. There is the popular Steak & Eggs which we decided to skip since we are not steak-eaters and also the famous Bikini Sandwich, which sadly is no longer on the menu.

Enjoying Our Mains~

Both the Crispy Egg Confit and the Valley Wing Soft Boiled Eggs are also popular items to order and we went with them as our first mains. The Valley Wing Soft Boiled Eggs are served with caviar and toast soldiers. I thought I saw photos of the soft-boiled eggs being served in an egg holder so I was slightly disappointed the eggs came in just a bowl. That aside, the toast soldier in the egg-caviar mix was good. BUT if you only want ONE egg main, the Crispy Egg Confit is a MUST ORDER. This dish was SUPER DELISH. (っ˘ڡ˘ς)

Valley Wing Soft Boiled Eggs and Crispy Egg Confit

For our second main, hubs ordered Nasi Lemak while I had the Traditional Chinese Congee. Yeah, congee is not much excitement but I always have congee when the breakfast buffet has it so I was thinking, “Why not?”. Hubs love the Nasi Lemak and he said it’s better than that offered at Fullerton Hotel Singapore. My man knows his nasi lemak, so don’t doubt him. Haha!

My porridge was ohh-la-la~ It was served with preserved chilli bean curd, braised peanuts, salted egg yolk, Chinese fried dough (油条) and pan-fried fish. Probably ‘cos I used to enjoy plain porridge with preserved chilli bean curd with my parents when I was young, this dish was very much yummy to me. The highlight has got to be the pan-fried fish. I mean where can I have porridge with fish, presented in such a classy manner? (o´▽`o)

Time for Some Room Service~

Yeah, you thought I was done with all the food at the Valley Wing right? NOPE. We have decided to try out some food from Shangri-La Singapore’s in-room dining. Shangri-La Singapore did a good job in the digitalisation of its services. Scanning a QR code would bring you right to a site where you could order in-room dining or request housekeeping services & minibar items. All of these could be done without calling and waiting for someone to pick up your call. How nice is that?

As with all our staycations, I would always want to try the laksa from the hotel. So yes, I went with the Singapore Laksa while hubs ordered the Nasi Goreng Kampong. We even had an extra order of dessert just ‘cos we wanted to try it out. Haha! Anyway, we are not gluttons. This was our dinner, which we had rather late after a long dip in the tub. ( ´ ω ` )

Overall food quality was good. The Singapore Laksa came with a Boston lobster claw, a speciality for the laksa here at Shangri-La Singapore. There is something about the broth that I just couldn’t explain. It wasn’t like it’s not good but it’s just not giving me the oomph that I had at Andaz Singapore. ┐(‘~` )┌ But the Boston lobster claw was a joy to eat since I love seafood. Haha!

Shangri-La Singapore has a great selection of food on their in-room dining menu. We have never seen such an extensive one in all of our staycations so anyone staying here should be happy to have such a wide range of food to try. (b ᵔ▽ᵔ)b

Hotel Facilities to Explore, Similar to that of a Mini Resort!

After all the food and drinks, the only other thing to do besides going back to the room to sleep or chill is to explore the hotel compound. I know Shangri-La Singapore is a big hotel but I didn’t even know until recently that the hotel has THREE wings. There’s the Tower Wing, Garden Wing and where we stayed, the Valley Wing. I was so used to visiting the main ballroom at the Tower Wing, that I didn’t realise how BIG Shangri-La Singapore is. ヽ(°〇°)ノ

Capturing the Valley Wing from outside

There is so much you can do while at Shangri-La Singapore. When I say so much, I mean A LOT. There are kid-friendly activities such as the buds by Shangri-La as well as SPLASH that would be sure to keep your kids entertained. Since there are three wings in the hotel, there are also a lot of restaurants you could visit for a meal there. Interestingly, they even had a small bakery/dessert outlet at the Tower Wing for you to buy some of the hotel’s bakery goods. There are just so many spots you can explore, similar to staying in a resort. This is also one of the reasons why we could just spend 24 hours in the hotel without stepping out. |ω・)ノ

A Well-Maintained REAL Herb Garden

One of the things that amazed us while we were walking around was Shangri-La Singapore’s Herb Garden Trail. The last time we saw a herb garden was at Fullerton Hotel Singapore, not too shabby but not to the scale of what Shangri-La Singapore have. It’s not just a herb garden, they have vegetables and fruits growing in their garden! Now I know how brinjal and papaya grow on their trees and plants! Honestly a very educational walk around the trail. I went snap-crazy with my camera and I swear I didn’t even capture everything. Haha! (~˘▽˘)~

A Gym? A COMMERCIAL GYM you mean…

Another thing that amazed us was the hotel’s gym or to be exact, their Health Club. A normal hotel gym would only have a limited number of stations and if you’re lucky, some machines. But here at the Shangri-La Singapore, it’s as if you just entered a commercial gym. I was kind of regretting that I didn’t bring my activewear. (ノω・、)

Not only does it have a good number of machines, but there are also at least two squat racks and a good number of free weights. To top it off, the male and female changing rooms each have their sauna, steam room as well and hot whirlpool bath! LIKE WHAT?! Come on already!

Funny story. Since hubs and I had to enter through the male and female changing rooms separately, I got lost in the changing room. HAHAHA! And that got me exploring the WHOLE changing room and got wow-ed. I was thinking where in the world is the entrance to the gym when the sign was there all along right in front of me. (*/_\)

HUGE Swimming Pool but No Chance to Use It (T_T)

With the change in the regulations, there is no longer a need to book a slot for the usage of the gym or the swimming pool. This means that anyone can go at any time and there is also no restriction on how many times you can go there. Surprisingly, there were a lot of kids with their parents on a weekday (we checked in on a Wednesday). I mean, don’t they have school on a weekday?! I need someone to enlighten me… Are they just tourists or what? (◎ ◎)ゞ

Anyway, the swimming pool area is HUGE! If I am not wrong, there are three depths of the pool for guests to enjoy a swim. We had wanted to visit later in the day but alas, it seems like Shangri-La Singapore takes wet weather very seriously. We were all dressed and headed down to the pool, then we realised there was NO ONE in the pool. And there was a sign saying lightning warning hence the pool is closed until further notice. \(〇_o)/

Having been to so many hotels in Singapore, we have never come by one that was so serious about the rainy weather. Heck, we have never even seen any hotel that has a lifeguard and Shangri-La Hotel has like three lifeguards at all times?! We even tried the next day by waking up early but the weather was still bad. The weather only cleared up when we were about to check out. (ノД`)

So sadly, no signature poses by the pool this time. And because of this, we had to get creative and took some photos in our huge bathtub. Haha! ( ´ ▽ ` )

Overall Experience

Needless to say, we have had such a great experience staying at the Valley Wing that we have decided that we will be back again when there is a good deal. The Deluxe Room was fantastic and the food & beverages offered in the Valley Wing package were all super delish for the price we paid. Service was also top-notch here as the service staff were all attentive and friendly. Not forgetting, this hotel made me fall in love with an alcoholic drink named Mimosa. (´・ᴗ・ ` ) It also has things that I wished to try in the future, such as working out in their SUPERBLY BIG gym as well as dipping in their swimming pool.

Hubs and I have discussed and we think, this hotel might have just become our Number 1 hotel in Singapore! So yes, I highly recommend staying at the Valley Wing at Shangri-La Singapore if you ever have a chance to stay here. We noticed some business travellers during our stay and we think that if your company can afford it, you should be staying at the Valley Wing as well.
