Even if you don’t plan to stay in the resort all day, that doesn’t mean you have to drag your kids everywhere with you, especially if they are more than happy to spend their holiday within the resort. Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore has developed a new 2,150sqm kids’ playground called Buds by Shangri-La on the first floor of its rejuvenated Tower Wing. The kid-friendly space has a number of themed activity spaces, including Muddy for those who like to make a mess; Stage, a music studio; Bake, a cooking classroom for both children and parents; and a Party Room for, well, parties. Children under four years old can also spend time in the Toddler Zone that has swings and slides, a piano floor, a ball pit and vintage children’s rides. Outside, a giant pirate ship structure is there for kids to climb up and slide down, as is a water play zone with splash pads. And even if you don’t feel like leaving the resort, there’s always the Recharge café located right next door.
