Singapore hotels? Anyplace similar to the Penn in BKK?

Jump to last reply

With Bob blazing a trail - so to speak - my family is heading to SIN and Bali this summer. We have a few days in SIN at the end of our trip and need some hotel advice. Two adults, two pre-teens, hopefully looking for a large room/suite for all of us.

It seems hotel rates in SIN are way more expensive than BKK and, ironically, the 5 star properties aren't that much more than say 4 star spots. So, we are looking at:
the Four Seasons, Ritz, Regent or maybe the Grand Hyatt or Pan Pacific (this last one may have some very good rates).

I've seen good feedback on most of these hotels (I think Kim really liked the FS) and I know the FS will take the four of us in a room/suite. Also, their hotel rooms are now being completely renovated, set to be done by early summer - which would be a big plus. Yet, I'm not sure if the hotel has any views and not sure if the pool it has is very large. The kids will want some time relaxing poolside, as will we. The Shangri-La looks like a nice mix of a city/resort hotel but it seems it may not be well located and the large rooms we would want, in the Valley Wing, are way too expensive. Is there anyplace like the Penn BKK in SIN? Someplace similar? Does the Ritz fit that bill? And, is the Ritz in a good area? Has anyone been to the new St. Regis in SIN?

As noted, with various "deals" (I use the word loosely), that the hotels offer for summer and weekend travel, prices for most of these hotels are pretty close to one another. Thanks.
