Traders Hotel Singapore

Traders Hotel

4 stars - review by

Traders Hotel is one of three Shangri-La luxury properties located in the Lion City and follows the company’ trusted philosophy of providing a carefree resort atmosphere along with small exclusive areas where the business traveller can feel at home. Impressive leisure facilities include a large outdoor pool, spa and fitness centre and the attractive landscaped gardens afford a tranquil escape from the buzz of city life.

Location

Traders Hotel is situated invitingly midway between the dazzling neon-lit malls of Orchard Road and the comparative tranquillity of Singapore’s lush Botanical Gardens. Both are little more than a 10-minute walk away. It’s a prime spot to be in for business or pleasure, and the CBD and downtown core are just a short taxi ride away. The hotel has an all-Mercedes fleet of cars to ferry you from the airport or do it yourself with a hassle-free 30-minute journey by MRT train. The nearest MRT station is Orchard, around 10 minutes away from the hotel on foot.

Rooms

Traders Hotel has 546 rooms and suites decked out in soothing colour schemes and plush fabrics. Standard and Club Rooms are on the small side but the Deluxe and One-bedroom Suites have a spacious open plan feel with subtle touches of Scandinavian interior design. Full size work desks, mini-bar, WiFi and premium toiletries come as standard in all rooms.

Bars and Restaurants

There are three very tempting eateries to choose from, including award-winning Ah Hoi’s Kitchen where you can expect the unexpected – unique bites such as Sri Lankan Chilli Crab and Champagne Pork Ribs. Cafébiz offers casual international buffets while at adjacent Cafebiz Alfresco, the accent is on authentic Mediterranean and healthy light bites. Rumpoles Bar is the main evening hang-out; a laid back unpretentious place with sports on TV and relaxing tunes.

Facilities

Unsurprising for a member of the Shangri-La group, Traders Hotel has a typical resort-style ambience, a little tropical island oasis in the midst of the city. You can sense this lazing around the huge lagoon-style outdoor pool or in the steam bath and indoor whirlpool. Stay fit and fabulous in the 24-hour hi-tech gym and spa and beauty salon and there is also a kid’s pool to keep those demanding little ones occupied. If you need to be productive during your stay in Singapore, there is a well equipped business centre and numerous meeting and function rooms for hire.

In review

The proximity to the Orchard Road retail district is a big plus and along with a fine array of leisure amenities, makes for a good weekend break option. Rates are competitive for the luxury market but standard room sizes are generally small. Public areas on the other hand, are bright, modern and spacious.
