Singapore Changi Airport is the perfect place for a long layover. Many passengers welcome the respite. Those who have not visited Southeast Asia’s best airport shake their heads in disbelief.
One of the perks of a long layover at Changi Airport is the rooftop Jacuzzi. Travelers to Changi do not trade uncomfortable airline seats for uncomfortable ones in the waiting area. There is nothing like pulsating jets of water soothing muscles. Imagine the relaxing waters after sitting in a full airplane for many hours.
The Jacuzzi facilities are free for travelers staying at the Ambassador Transit Hotel in Terminal 1. The rooftop Jacuzzi plus shower, towel and non-alcoholic drink is complimentary for hotel guests. The non-alcoholic drink choices are bottle water, soft drink and tea. There is a small charge for non-staying guests.
The Ambassador Transit Hotel is in Terminal 1 on the third level. If in Terminal 2, ride the sky train to the terminal. Go to the Transit Mall East Level 3. The sky train operates daily from the hours 6:00A.M. to 1:30 A.M. There is a two minute travel time between the two terminals. The wait time between cars is about two minutes, also.
Travelers waiting for a departing airplane consider using the Jacuzzi. It is a wonderful way to past time and refreshen oneself. The Jacuzzi is available daily 7:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M. There is a swimming pool available at Ambassador Transit Hotel, too.
Maps and brochures about the Jacuzzi usage is available at the information desks. The desks are everywhere inside the airport. The information officers are happy to answer all questions.
