"He was enjoying that pleasant mingling of physical ease and mental alertness which seemed to him, of all sensations, the most truly civilised. So far, the appointments of Shangri-La had been all that he could have wished --certainly more than he could ever have expected." - from the book The Lost HorizonTo celebrate our 4th Wedding Anniversary, Paul and I were treated to a really nice weekend staycation at Shangri-la Hotel's Valley Wing here in Singapore. We're truly so thankful to our sweet friends from Shangri-la who made our anniversary weekend nothing less than PERFECT. It was indeed a very relaxing weekend as we didn't even bother going out of the hotel throughout our stay. There was really no reason to as everything we wanted can be found right within reach and our goal is to relax and to indulge through and through.
From the moment we stepped inside the very exclusive and posh lobby of the Valley Wing, we both knew that this will be a weekend to remember. While we have stayed at Shangri-la Hotel before, having our room booked at the Valley Wing is a new experience for us. Among the 3 wings of the hotel, this is where most of the dignitaries, presidents, prime ministers and even celebrities would choose to stay in. Even President Obama and our very own PNoy have walked across the lobby and down the halls of this wing. In fact, the Valley Wing has an exclusive lift which gives their VIP guests the chance to go up to their floor quickly without being seen.

Staying at the Valley Wing not only gives you the best, Shangri-la-signature service but you can also have complimentary drinks from the mini bar and at the Champagne Bar by the lobby. While drinks are complimentary and available all day, there's also high tea from 2PM - 5PM and hot snacks were served from 5PM - 7PM. Paul and I are no alcoholic drinkers so we were happy with our fruit juices and a bowl of mixed nuts. Yum!
That was a quick tour around our room at the Valley Wing. With our beautiful room alone, guess you can see why we opted to just stay in the hotel for all 3 days. I actually felt a bit sad when we had to check out as it marked the end of our wonderful staycation. Wish this could last forever. *heartbreak*
