Inside Trump and Kim’s Presidential Suites in Singapore
Presidential Suite at the St Regis Singapore
Kim Jong-un: St Regis
The hotel’s Beverly Hills meets Versailles vibe is writ large in its Presidential Suite. Lavish furnishings include painted silk panels, custom made crystal chandeliers and a water wall feature.
There’s also a baby grand piano and original works by big name artists.From the wraparound terrace there’s a panoramic view of the Botanic Gardens – and a hand polished brass swing from which to enjoy it.
A private chef will whip up dinner on the grill out there for guests or inside in the more genteel, 12 seater dining area if they prefer.
As well as a gym there’s a Jacuzzi, jet shower, and marble steam chamber. Plus the option of complimentary daily massages for two in suite.
Donald Trump: Shangri-La Singapore
Not only will Shangri-La Suite guests arrive at the Valley Wing entrance – more exclusive than the main hotel lobby – they’ll also have their own personal entrance there. Then it’s a private elevator ride to the vast Shangri-La suite.
His ‘n hers dressing rooms (in the unlikely event Melania should accompany her husband), a gym and sauna await as well as personalized bathrobes, pillow cases and stationery. Butler service is available around the clock. Want gourmet cuisine or hawker food served on fine china at the walnut dining table? No problem.
As well as the master bedroom, there’s an ensuite twin – usually utilized by guest’s security detail.

Should either leader wish to take a break during the summit itself, luckily The Capella has two presidential suites:
The summit: The Capella
The two presidential suites at this luxury Sentosa island hideaway (guests are picked up by from the airport by complimentary Mercedes) are actually standalone, historic houses. The two storey, three bedder manors – all perfectly preserved white columns and shutters – and are so special they have conservation status.
And while the houses look 19th century colonial on the outside they’ve been furnished with a mix of tasteful shades of greige mod and antique Asian artefacts. Each manor also comes with the luxury of its own private garden and swimming pool (and we’re not talking plunge pool size). Watch out for the resident peacocks.
