Inside SIA Luxury Suites
Singapore Airlines might not have a rare in-flight ‘shower spas’ with heated floors like the Dubai-based luxurious carrier Emirates but it was the first airline to take to the skies the massive double deck A380 and introduce a higher tier to the First Class called ‘SIA Suites’.
Each individual cabin features sliding doors and window blinds, offering you the freedom to decide on the level of privacy you prefer. While the leather and wood finishes, created in soothing natural hues, enhance the sense of serenity.
The suites come complete with a full flat bed with mattress, Givenchy bed linens and reclining chair and table. Passengers also receive pyjamas and Kiehl’s toiletry kits. For solo travelers, single suite cabins are also available.
Singapore Airlines offers the pinnacle of luxury dining when you fly in Suites or First Class. Guests can ‘book a cook’ where you can select gourmet main course from a premium selection of dishes at least 24 hours before departure. Out of Singapore, enjoy a wide range of over 60 diverse dishes, including dishes created exclusively for Singapore Airlines by the world’s most sought-after culinary masters from International Culinary Panel.
From the earthy white asparagus and satin-like tenderness of beef, to intense, indelible spices of biryani, the airlines continues to introduce new flavors that surprise and delight your palate as you embark on a gastronomical journey like no other. To complement your meal, Singapore Airlines offers a selection of the finest wines including Dom Perignon and Krüg Champagnes.
The Singapore Airlines Suite has an inner sanctum that offers privacy for discussing business, or sharing a relaxing moment. It is a class that is yours alone.
Singapore Airlines offer an exhaustive range of entertainment options including audio and video-on-demand on a 23-inch wide LCD screen.
