Six Senses Maxwell: A stylish extension of the resort brand's city hotel in Singapore
More to love
If Six Senses Duxton is about weaving in eclectic Asian-Western elements into its design DNA, then its sister property Six Senses Maxwell (which is slated to open in December this year) will exude stylish European flair. Both hotels are located in beautifully restored heritage buildings within a short walking distance from each other. From the Maxwell site, simply meander along the five-footways, and you'll reach the Duxton property. What's fab is that guests of both hotels will be able to utilise the facilities at either location.
Housed in a colonial style 19th century building, Six Senses Maxwell, is designed by internationally acclaimed French architect and designer Jacques Garcia whose other projects include Hôtel Costes Paris, The NoMad New York City and L'oscar London. For this Singapore property, Garcia offers an alternative aesthetic with his signature European style, fusing tradition and modernity. There are seven unique room categories across 138 guest rooms and suites decorated with custom furnishings, and original artwork.
Gourmands will feel right at home here. The hotel boasts five food and beverage concepts including Murray Terrace, a classic European-style brasserie, and Cook & Tras, a social library restaurant and bar influenced by heritage Straits cuisine. How about some bubbly? The Rose Lounge & Bar will offer champagne and other sparkling sips, alongside white and rosé wines, and spritzers. We recommend sinking into one of the banquette seats or club chairs and enjoying a signature Rose Bellini. Over at Garcha, you and your mates can dive into the collection of spirits, comprising of small batch and artisanal whisky, tequila and other clear spirits. Life gets grander when you can enjoy these drinks served tableside from an after-dinner drinks trolley.
Four of the five F&B concepts will be situated on the ground floor where guests can enjoy the outdoor seating area along the five-foot terrace. The natural light here will do justice to your Instagram shots. Meanwhile, to cool down after a scorching day, in-house guests can look forward to complimentary treats from an old-fashioned ice cream tricycle. If you're looking to get active, head up to the building's rooftop 25-metre lap pool, or sweat it out in the gym.
For a dose of pampering and self-care at the start of the year, Six Senses Spa Pods is set to open early 2019. Here, in-house guests and locals can enjoy signature massages, facials, and beauty treatments. Personal trainers and yoga classes will also be present to complete the wellness experience.
If lounging around is not your thing, there are neighbourhood experiences to check out, including the MacRitchie Treetops Walk, and a Black & White Iconic Heritage Homes Tour. Or if you need alternative advice on the state of your well being, walk over to Six Senses Duxton for a complimentary Traditional Chinese Medicine consultation. As part of the unique Six Senses experiences, all of these services will be made available to guests of either hotel.
