Six Senses launches first Singapore city hotels
Six Senses has given two Singaporean heritage buildings a complete restoration. The project marks the brand’s first city hotel
Six Senses Resorts & Spas has given two Singaporean heritage buildings a complete restoration as part of a conservation project in the city-state”s central district. Split across two buildings – Six Senses Duxton and Six Senses Maxwell – the project marks the brand”s first city hotel.
Celebrating local culture and history while adding a touch of playfulness, both structures feature a mix of Chinese, Malay and European elements including neo-classical lion head motifs, Chinese porcelain-chip friezes, Malay timber fretwork, French windows, Portuguese shutters and Corinthian pilasters. Six Senses Duxton is due to open in April 2018, followed by Six Senses Maxwell three months later.
Sustainably restored by designer Anoushka Hempel, Six Senses Duxton comprises 49 guestrooms and suites, and incorporates eccentric surprises including large golden fans and hues of black, gold and yellow layered with Oriental screens and calligraphy wallpaper from Hempel”s personal collection.
Gold takes centre stage in the restaurant, which offers a fine dining menu of classic and innovative Chinese cuisine, whilst adjacent is an antiquarian library themed lobby bar serving up the hotel”s signature house cocktails.
