We had a super fun vacation at Shangri La Singapore recently and when we thought kids have been to all the fun playgrounds in Singapore we came to know about Buds by Shangri La. We have planned our staycation just before the term break began and didn’t know that so much is stored for us during this staycation. Loved this warm welcome note by the hotel with a box of chocolates for us.
Here is the beautiful hotel lobby and check- in was pretty smooth and quick.
The hotel was fully booked but we managed to get a family room for us which was good enough for a family of four. There is a window alcove which converts from a kids’ play area to a kids’ bed and a perfect place for kids to sit next to the window and enjoy the view.
Family room comes with children’s organic toiletries, bathrobe, slippers etc for a comfortable stay here but there is one thing which I didn’t like in this bathroom was the shower area with a glass window and you can only close it from the outside. It is a family room with young kids staying in the same room.
This is on Level 9 which caters mainly to family suites and has got a 24 hours complimentary access to central, shared Pantry with washing machine, dryer, iron, induction heater, microwave, and hot/cold filtered water dispenser provided. Also, all Baby related stuff you can request for making life easier.
Can you believe kids skipped the swimming pool so that they can check out Buds first?? Though I know we will be coming back to the pool for sure and we head to the pool after we were done with the Play. Hot Jacuzzi pool was so relaxing.
Here, we are at newly opened Buds by Shangri La which is an ideal fun place for them. Entry to Buds is complimentary for the guests staying in the Family Rooms but it can be used by non-guests as well with an entry charge.
Buds by Shangri La used radio-frequency identification (RFID) wristbands for children for the safety of kids.
I think once you entered the play area kids are not going to come out of this place. The entire play is divided into the different zones for various activities and a soft play Toddler Zone for your little one to enjoy safely.
This is the first time I have seen such a big playground inside any hotel with slides, ball pool, sand pit, shooting areas and much more!
- Muddy – for budding artists who like to make a splash: We could see the room as activities were already going on so can’t go in between.
- Bake- a fully equipped cooking classroom for children and parents: Your little chef can bake their favourites here and it is like a real baking studio.
