Historic event spaces re-open at Shangri-La Singapore

The Shangri-la Singapore has launched two newly renovated event spaces that have received investment valuing S$10 million (US$7.5m). The two venues include The Pavilion, formerly Singapore’s first Dutch school, which operated between 1928 and 1982 and the hotel’s new Tower Ballroom: the first ballroom within the Shangri-La collection, originally opened in 1971.

Interior specialists Leese Robertson Freeman Designers were engaged to transform the 934 sqm ballroom into a modern and elegant event space, complete with up-to-date audio-visual equipment, sixty adjustable spotlights and Chinoiserie-themed silk wall art. The Pavilion has been enhanced with repairs to its colonial architecture, new interiors and fittings such as an outdoor terrace and outdoor grill kitchen for dinners and lunches. The Pavillion can seat up to 100 guests for a banquet while the Tower Ballroom can accommodate 900 theatre-style.

“There is a growing need for distinctive event venues that offer different experiences and ambience.  As our clientele has become increasingly sophisticated, their expectations have naturally become higher.  Tower Ballroom’s new look and tableware will add a touch of distinction to world-class events and celebrations,” said Mr. Reto K. Klauser, vice president and general manager of Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore.

Located near the Singapore Botanic Gardens, the Shangri-La Singapore is set on 15 acres of land and has 747 rooms in three wings, 127 serviced apartments and 55 condominium units.
