SHANGRI-LA HOTEL, SINGAPORE
 
Since its opening in 1971, this city-resort hotel, located on 15 acres of choice private real estate, only 10 minutes from the main shopping area on Orchard Road, has received awards and accolades from visitors all over the world. The hotel is comprised of three high-rise wings, housing over 880 lavishly-appointed rooms and suites, connected by walkways that surround floral gardens, an attractive swimming pool/outside lounge area, and tropical foliage and waterfalls. There are 23 meeting rooms and two ballrooms including a 16,000-square-foot grand ballroom.
 
The diverse choice of restaurants runs the gamut from eclectic buffet, Chinese and Japanese to the gourmet Blu Bar and Restaurant. In addition to the large swimming pool, heated Jacuzzi and outdoor lounging area, there is a three-hole pitch and putt course, four tennis courts and a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa.
 
Strong Points: An elegant, luxurious property with lavish accommodations, exceptional dining and service and somewhat removed from the conglomerate of hotels that line the busy shopping streets of Singapore.
