Are you big on sustainability and history? If the answer is yes, then here are six reasons why you should consider staying at Six Senses Maxwell the next time you visit the Lion City.
1. A perfect blend of old and new
Located at the junction of Duxton, Tanjong Pagar and Maxwell Road, Six Senses Maxwell was once the site of a nutmeg plantation. While this charming boutique hotel looks brand new on the inside (not surprising given it only opened its doors to the public in December 2018), the colonial-style exterior looks like it belongs in the 19th-century… in a good way. Set in a block of heritage shop houses in the Chinatown district, it was definitely refreshing to see tradition being tastefully maintained in the middle of such a modern city like Singapore.
In efforts to preserve the history of Singapore, the owners of Six Senses Maxwell also purchased over 200 pieces of authentic indentures and property deeds and had them hung all around the hotel for guests to read. I personally had a blast strolling down the hallways to study each frame and it made me realise that there’s so much history I was never aware of.
