During my recent travels, my work took me on a trip to the ever buzzing, cultural and animated Singapore, where I had the opportunity to stay at the Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore by Shangri-La. Connected to the famous Tanglin Mall that offers high-class brands, shops and dining options, the hotel is also conveniently located close to emergency and provisional services and offers daily shuttle services to the famous Orchard Street and the Central Business District. Hotel Jen Singapore is a great stop for travellers seeking both leisure and business, alike, in Singapore, with modern facilities, knowledgeable and friendly staff, and accessibility to the main districts of the city.
The hotel is host to 565 rooms and suites, with seven different categories. For my two-night duration in Singapore, I chose to stay in the superior room at the hotel, my little haven for two days that offered the best of comfort and the most remarkable view of Singapore city.

Jen Tanglin Singapore has an array of dining options for travellers on-the-go, as well as for those looking for a more formal meal. J65 is the all-day dining option that features an interactive open-kitchen island. The seafood on ice concept is huge here, enticing guests to try multicultural preparations, in addition to the other options and cuisines at the buffet. I had heard a lot about Ah Hoi’s Kitchen, a nod to the more traditional and authentic cuisine of Singapore, which has earned its own reputation as one of the must-visit restaurants of the city.
Although there are limited options for vegetarians here, I hear from many friends who have visited in the past that the irresistible Chilli Crab, the sizzling Char Kway Teow and other Singapore classics are not to be missed, if you are a fan. Jen’s Kitchen On-the-Go is exactly as the name suggests, a great pit stop to pick up your morning coffee and portable breakfast or power snack before you head out the door to get on with your day in the bustling city.
For those who still need their fitness fix on holiday, you can avail of the state-of-the-art equipment at the 24-hour fitness centre of the hotel. But that’s not all! Jen Tanglin Singapore also offers a jogging route for those who prefer their outdoor workouts, with different trails taking you to different parts of the city. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a more relaxing activity, why not take a dip in the 30-metre swimming pool of the hotel or unwind in the outdoor whirlpool? Or simply get a rejuvenating massage from a choice of many treatments at the Essene Vale Spa.
