2. When luxury meets tradition
There are many things about Six Senses Maxwell that made me go “WOW” during my stay, for one: the hotel’s interior. With an aim to pay homage to Singapore’s rich Asian traditions and warm European heritage, French architect and interior designer Jacques Garcia did a fantastic job of incorporating the theme of ‘East meets West’. Just take a look at the rooms below! Doesn’t it look like you could be in China and France at the same time?
There are 138 guest rooms and suites located across four floors. Each room is distinctively decorated in ethically sourced Wenge hardwood floors, Italian handmade vintage rugs, tasseled velvet chairs, European-style bathrooms with walk-in rain showers (some room categories even come with a free-standing clawfoot bathtub!) and a stylish marble minibar fit for James Bond.
Verdict: I initially thought the strong emerald and mahogany colour choices would bother me, but it didn’t! In fact, it made the room even more cosy. It’s definitely a space you can spend the whole day in, which isn’t the point if you’re on a city holiday but at least you know there’s somewhere comfortable you can call home at the end of a long day – be it a day ofbusiness meetings or sight-seeing.
