The historic Trump-Kim summit is finally happening, and all eyes are on Singapore as the two world leaders landed on our sunny island yesterday.
The meeting will be held at the Capella Singapore hotel on Sentosa, and it is believed that US president Donald Trump will stay at the Shangri-La Hotel, while the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un checked in to the St. Regis.
Given how no expense was spared in the preparation of the summit, one can only assume that the world leaders are currently being housed in the finest each hotel has to offer. We don’t know about you, but our guess is that they’re staying in the presidential suites.
According to the St Regis website, they have a Presidential Suite situated on the top floor, which the hotel describes as “the epitome of seductive luxury and bespoke comfort”.
The room, perched on the hotel’s 20th floor, boasts great views from its private balcony. Other premium features include a separate living room, dining room, office, and gym, on top of the swanky bedroom—all comfortably distributed in the 335 square meter room.
It has a private Jacuzzi, decor pieces by world-famous artists such as Marc Chagall and Le Pho, and access hotel’s famous butler service.
It will also cost more than $9,000 per night to stay there.
According to the website, the suite is currently unavailable for booking this week. But a random date (we chose 9 to 10 Jul) showed that one night in the Presidential Suite will set you back some $9,180. The CNN said that rates can go up to USD$9,000, or $12,000, depending on the dates booked.
Reports speculate that Kim might be getting food supplies delivered from North Korea, and there’s definitely no lack of space for Kim and his entourage to eat in (and hide from the media). The suite itself has a 12-seater long table overlooking a scenic waterway, with a wraparound balcony boasting views of the lush greens of the Botanic Gardens. There are also options to explore the hotel’s many fine dining options—like the LaBrezza serving Italian cuisine, and Yan Ting’s Chinese cuisine.
And with complimentary daily spas, and full breakfast, this is one posh stay certainly good enough for royalty and dictators alike.
