Each year during the festive season, Shangri-La Singapore goes all out to enchant guests with the widest array of treats and experiences in town. Whether you have decided to throw a joyous gathering at home or are planning an evening out, the luxury hotel has you covered.
Indulge your dinner party guests with a spread of traditional roast delights, each with a unique spin. The must-haves include the Italian-inspired, juicy Rustico Spice Roasted U.S. Whole Turkey, and the decadent, slow-roasted Truffle Honey and Cinnamon Glazed Bone-in Gammon Ham. Steak-lovers can’t go wrong with the hotel’s Black Angus Beef Wellington, which features a tender fillet smothered with spinach, mushroom duxelles and foie gras, all enveloped in a golden, flaky pastry. Also sure to be crowd-pleasers are two new items: the succulent Slow Roasted Garlic and Rosemary Studded Leg of Lamb, and the delicate yet flavourful Salt Baked Seabass Fillet.
The cakes and desserts at Shangri-La are second to none. A special 3D cake centrepiece depicting children and a fairy-tale tome will bring your dinner table to life. Another magical treat is the strawberry and chiffon Santa Sleigh concoction, which comes encased in chocolate. For the requisite Bûche De Noël, plentiful choices—ranging from a fruity mango log cake to the truffle and hazelnut-flavoured returning favourite—will cater to every palate. With all items available for delivery or takeaway from Shophouse by Shangri-La until 26 December 2023, dressing your table with a decadent festive spread has never been more fuss-free.
If you’re looking to bring your celebrations out of the home, there is no better place to soak up the festive ambience than in Shangri-La Singapore’s renowned dining venues. On Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, enjoy a long brunch at Origin Grill, which serves up unlimited small plates of culinary gems (like wagyu tenderloin, oysters done three ways, and a festive Eggs Benedict). The restaurant, famous for its Josper grill, also offers a six-course New Year’s Eve Set Dinner of its most indulgent dishes—paired with champagne, of course.
In the mood for Italian on Christmas Day instead? Head to Waterfall Ristorante Italiano, where a scrumptious buffet spread of fresh seafood, signature pastas and pizzas, and hearty roasts awaits. Meanwhile, a craving for flavours closer to home will bring you to the Lobby Lounge’s Peranakan Semi-Buffet (running from 23 to 25 December), featuring Singaporean favourites such as Legendary’s Bak Kut Teh, Wah Eng’s Hainanese Beef Noodles and nostalgic treats like sugee cake and a live putu piring station.
Things take a turn for the elegant at The Rose Veranda, Shangri-La Singapore’s high tea institution. For the entire month of December, the venue transforms into a Christmas wonderland, with a delectable festive set menu of themed bites and desserts. For that extra bit of indulgence, order a glass of Mulled Wine or Gingerbread Punch, and throw in a Chocolate Fondue for good measure.
Season of gifting
If you’re looking to check some names off your gift-list, look to the Shophouse by Shangri-La Singapore, where options range from chic to playful. For the young ones in your life, the Nutcracker Pinata will surely delight, as will the creative DIY Gingerbread House Kit.
And nothing will thrill the bon vivant more than Origin Bar’s marvellous selection of limited-edition spirits and cocktails. Its Christmas Gin is inspired by fruit crumble pie; the Barrelled Old Tom Gin is an exotic blend evoking a tropical celebration; while the Chocolate Spiced Rum will be a sure hit with cocoa lovers. For something ready-to-pour, we recommend the Christmas cocktail trio of the classic Negroni, Gimlet and Manhattan.
You don’t have to miss out on merrymaking even if you’re skipping out on a year-end holiday to a far-flung destination. Closer to home, Shangri-La Singapore promises an exuberant time with a festive room package—high tea for two at The Rose Veranda and an Essence of Shangri-La Candle included—available from now till 29 December 2023.
When you’re not lounging in the luxurious rooms or feasting at the various restaurants, we recommend popping down to Chi, The Spa for the rejuvenating Delight Treat, comprising a massage, Turkish scrub and invigorating cocktail. Make it a pampering spa day by treating yourself to a Classic Deep Cleansing Facial for that much-needed holiday glow.
Guests with little ones in tow can also usher in the season with a host of interactive activities, like log cake-decorating at Bake Room, charm bracelet-making, an interactive storytelling session and Shangri-La’s very own Little Ambassador Programme. Between opportunities for quality family time, a range of gourmet festive feasts and a plethora of gifting ideas—Shangri-La Singapore is, undeniably, the place to be this season.
