Most of the time, people get bored at the mention of airport hotels. But not if it is Singapore’s airport hotel, or better known as Crowne Plaza Hotel. Located at Terminal 3 of the Changi International Airport, Crowne Plaza Hotel is anything but boring-looking.
Think a business hotel but with touches of a holiday resort; plush sofas in candy pop colours juxtaposing clean white work desks with reading lamps, pots of orchids and other greens in a predominantly wine and berry-hued space. The facade alone welcomes the world to Singapore with the subtle reflections of how our Garden City is like.
An afternoon walk around the hotel led us to several quiet gardens and courtyards, each with a view to boast of, and some even over-looking the majestic airport runway.
The pool is also one of the nicest in Singapore. Nestled in the quiet outdoors on the third level, the sheer landscaping blew us away. The tall palm trees brought a sort of calmness, and the elusive little “boxes” (or relaxing corners) within the pool itself made us feel like we were on a total hideout at a private beach where there was nobody else but us.
We checked in to a pool-access room, also located on the third level. Clean and spacious, the modern-looking room is furnished with wooden touches and felt very much like a holiday resort. The rooms are also fully soundproofed and complete with an oh-so-comfy bed and huge bathtubs.
And if you are looking to indulge in some weekend brunch, head to Azur – the hotel’s all day dining and buffet restaurant – which offers a selection of local dishes and international fare.
