Buds by Shangri-La was opened on 26 Jan 2018. Spanning over 2,150 sqm in total (with 850 sqm indoors and 1,300 sqm outdoors), the immersive and curated play space allows children to learn through play in a creative, self-directed and experiential environment while bonding with their parents.
More and more hotels around the world are recognizing the importance of family play and bonding time. Thus, they are offering lots of super fun activities and play areas, each more awesome than the last. This is certainly good news for the parents. Hey kids, you are SO lucky! Now, let’s check-out Buds by Shangri-La – Singapore’s largest play space in a hotel. 😀
Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore is the first hotel in Orchard Road to design and build an interactive play space for children that caters to both hotel guests and non-hotel guests. Yup, you’ll be delighted to hear that you can bring your kids there even if you’re not staying in the hotel.
Outdoors, families can enjoy a luxurious sanctuary of lush gardens in a 40,500-square-metre property, a free-form pool and an outdoor playground with a giant pirate ship structure offering challenging climbs and slides, and a water play zone with splash pads.
Indoors, families can enjoy a huge play space that includes Explorer Zone (for kids over 4 years old without parental supervision), Toddler Zone (soft play for kids under 4 years old and their parents) and various themed activity spaces that encourages fun learning.
Overall, the play space includes a design incorporating themes of adventure, camaraderie, independence and embracing of nature. A picture is worth a thousand words. Without further ado, Iet me give you a pictorial walkthrough of this wonderful play space.
Indoor Play Area
The Explorer Zone for kids over 4 years – it has a big ball pit under a mesh cave, climbing structures, air blasters for shooting foam balls (at target boards, not at people hahah!), slides and sand play area.
