Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas to open first city hotels

Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has given two old beauties a complete restoration as part of a remarkable conservation project in Singapore. Ideally situated in the central district, the project is located in the eclectic heart of Chinatown where socializing, dining and nightlife take center stage.

Six Senses Singapore is split across two buildings that are an easy wander apart. Six Senses Duxton and Six Senses Maxwell will mark the brand’s first city hotels, celebrating local Singapore culture and history while adding a touch of playfulness to the heritage properties. There is a diverse mix of Chinese, Malay and European elements in the buildings including neo-classical lion head motifs, Chinese porcelain-chip friezes co-existing with Malay timber fretwork, French windows, Portuguese shutters and Corinthian pilasters. Guests can make full use of all facilities and outstanding service in both, as well as the rich local community in between. No matter where you sleep, guests can sign for services at either hotel and will consider both locations – their home away from home.

Six Senses Duxton

With its colorful past, Duxton Road in old Chinatown’s Tanjong Pagar, is also known as Jinrickshaw Place named after the rickshaw pullers who used to gather by the station. In the not-so-recent-past, this colorful section of town was home to opium and gambling dens and places of even less reputable vices. Today the site features a row of trading houses that have been sustainably restored.

Six Senses Duxton

In harmony with a rich Asian history, yet still presenting her luminary vision, the 49 guestrooms and suites were given a unique individuality so that no two are exactly the same. A property highlight is the appointment of a traditional Chinese doctor offering readings, health recommen-dations and a medicinal herbal dispensary.

Six Senses Duxton

Maxwell Road was originally a nutmeg plantation before 14 three- and four-story colonial-style buildings were constructed and later joined together as a single entity. The diverse characteristics have been carefully conserved and the property features 138 guestrooms and suites, a Six Senses Spa, outdoor lap pool, Champagne bar and lounge, whiskey bar, boardroom and club lounge. A verandah lined with lush tropical foliage follows the length of the building and will be the ideal spot to meet for refreshments and alfresco dining. All rooms feature handmade mattresses by Naturalmat and organic bed linens to support Sleep With Six Senses, a key pillar of the group’s Integrated Wellness philosophy.

Colonial meets modern Europe in the restaurant, where the mouthwateringly indulgent yet health-full men-us represent the brand’s pioneering approach to fresh, local and seasonal food and drink: Eat With Six Sens-es. Six Senses Spa will offer specialty treatments while the external lap pool offers a refreshing escape to complement Singapore’s tropical weather.

Six Senses Duxton is due to open in April 2018, followed by Six Senses Maxwell three months later.
