The Hotel The first Six Senses property has opened in Singapore. Meet Six Senses Duxton, the first city hotel from the acclaimed hospitality and wellness company Six Senses. As a conservation project and designed by acclaimed British designer Anouska Hempel (Hempel and Blake’s hotels, London), Six Senses Duxton features a diverse mix of Chinese, Malay and European elements. The look of its interior is not quite what you would expect from a typical hotel.
Upon entering the hotel, guests will be greeted by large golden fans and strong hues of black, gold and yellow layered with Chinese screens and calligraphy wallpaper from Anouska’s personal collection. Another noteworthy mention is that its sister hotel, Six Senses Maxwell, will be opening later this year within a short walking distance from Six Senses Duxton.
The Dining Concepts There is a bar and restaurant named Yellow Pot at the lobby level, decked in black, gold and yellow hues. The 50-seat Yellow Pot restaurant will offer classic and innovative Chinese cuisine, and the adjacent 20-seat, antiquarian themed Yellow Pot bar will serve handcrafted cocktails featuring local ingredients and a list of premium pours. Yellow Pot will serve hotel guests during the soft opening period until it opens to the public on 14 May for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Its two semi-private dining rooms can accommodate five persons and ten persons separately.
The Rooms There are 49 guestrooms and suites, each with a unique individuality across eight themed categories so that no two are exactly the same, with locally and historically inspired names such as Nutmeg, Shophouse, Opium and Pearl. The two-story Duxton Duplex Suites complete with restored original spiral staircase, ground floor Skylight Suites and the singular Montgomerie Suite are the largest in terms of space. Dramatic jet-black Opium Rooms and Suites feature black walls and seductive black four-poster Chinese platform beds, while the Pearl Suites are a burst of gleaming white walls, white bedding and dressers inlaid with mother-of-pearl.
Room amenities include individually controlled air-conditioning, Naturalmat organic mattress, bathroom amenities by The Organic Pharmacy, flat panel television with satellite channels and Bose Bluetooth speaker.
