Snow City’s Ice Hotel Experience: An Arctic Escapade in Tropical Singapore!
The Ice Hotel Gallery opened to visitors on the 3rd of November, 2021, adding a freshly-chiseled dimension to Snow City’s family-oriented indoor snow center, ahead of the festive season. The latest exhibit in Snow City replaces the Arctic Snow playground, offering visitors a brand-new sensorial experience akin to the Ice Hotel experience of Nordic countries such as Sweden, Norway and Finland. With temperatures set at a freezing minus 5 degrees Celsius and cool installations that intrigue and amaze, this winter hinterland promises to spread Christmas cheer to our tropical shores!
Frozen in Time!
Like snowflakes all different but beautiful in their own way, breathtaking ice-installations adorn the immersive Ice Hotel Gallery, transporting guests to a dreamy white wonderland! Fashioned purely out of ice-blocks by highly acclaimed Singaporean ice-sculptor Jeffrey Ng and his team, these installations are sure to wow adults and children alike. The exquisitely carved sculptures form part of five distinct thematic installations spread across a 17-metre snow field, namely:
- Singapore’s Iconic History
- Ice Bar
- Ice Hotel Dining
- Throne of the Sea
Visitors can marvel at masterpieces crafted and assembled especially for the Ice Hotel Gallery, such as the water-spouting Merlion at the Ice Bar, the realistic looking fruit and shrimp trays at the Ice Hotel Dining and the decorative ice block inserts of resplendent flowers in all their glory.
The “Throne of the Sea” features a majestic chair fit for the king, flanked by an ethereal mermaid at the back and an enchanting mix of fish, flora and fauna, giving a feeling of being in the midst of an Arctic seabed! Guests are invited to lounge around, with furniture, crafted exclusively out of ice, conveniently placed all along the Gallery.
Plans are underway to make the Ice Bar and the Ice Hotel Dining functional in the future – where guests can have a unique, chilled- out daycation at a Nordic-styled Ice Hotel, right here in sunny Singapore! The Ice Hotel Gallery is also set to be certified as “Singapore’s First Ice Hotel Experience” by Singapore Book of Records and is definitely an unmissable attraction this winter.
