Six Senses Duxton

A STUDY IN UPDATED NOSTALGIA, the first urban hotel from the wellness-focused brand is a natural fit for Duxton Hill, where steely towers loom over Chinatown shophouses. Among them is this refitted row of several designed by London hotelier (and 1960s Bond girl) Anouska Hempel, who kept their intimate feel intact. Behind the stunning original façades, interiors echo Singapore’s unique heritage: Chinese screens and calligraphy-patterned wallpaper, Portuguese shutters, Malay woodwork. In collaboration with the TCM practice across the street, a local doctor pays housecalls for consultations, and the mini-bars in the 49 guest rooms are stocked with botanical tinctures—in addition to locavore booze in an Instagram-worthy display. The hotel feels like an oasis, but the surrounding area, Tanjong Pagar, is one of the city’s liveliest and most neighborly. In fact, sister hotel Six Senses Maxwell, which contains the joint-property’s pool and spa, just opened a few blocks away.
