WHETHER YOU’RE IN TOWN for the world-class shopping, extravagant attractions, or professional commitments, The St. Regis Singapore offers a wide range of reasons to make it your top choice for a home base in the city.
Sitting a short stroll away from the Singapore Botanic Gardens, the city’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, The St. Regis Singapore offers optimal access to high-fashion shopping and the grand embassies of the island nation. Always refined and elegant, the building was designed by prestigious architectural firm WATG in collaboration with Wilson Associates, who perfected the timeless interiors.
Each of its 299 opulent rooms is proffered with the hotel’s famous Butler Service. The hotel’s butlers pride themselves on being ever-present while never intruding. These highly-trained specialists provide an indulgent range of services that allow guests to kick back and enjoy their stay. They can pack, unpack, deliver coffee, shine shoes, press clothes, and meet most individual desires and requests around the clock.
As part of the St. Regis legacy, the Singapore address houses its own fine art collection. Among their 70+ piece private collection are works from American architect Frank Gehry, French painter Marc Chagall, Chinese modernist Gu Gan, and Colombian artist Fernando Botero. Complementing their international counterparts are pieces from groundbreaking Singaporean artists Georgette Chan and Chen Wen Hsi.
The works appear throughout the hotel — and in certain suites — and their homes have been carefully chosen to complement the Chinoiserie decor. This is masterfully done in Astor Bar, where a set of 10 dynamic Pablo Picasso lithographs line the room, creating a jovial atmosphere and playing perfectly off the cozy allure of the sophisticated wood and leather interior.
The bar, which placed tenth in Travel + Leisure’s Best Hotel Bars in Singapore, is named after St. Regis hotel founder John Jacob Astor IV, and its new signature cocktail menu pays homage to Astor’s home city, New York.
The New York, New York cocktail menu promises a flavorful journey through the Big Apple. The 20 new offerings include an homage to the spirited culture of the city, Tong Wars; a tribute to Chinatown, Capitan’s Cure; and an ode to Columbus Circle and Midtown, A Sip of Gilded Age.
After hitting the bar, revitalization and purification may be in order. Luckily, The St. Regis Singapore holds the first Remède Spa outside the US and was rated eighth in Travel + Leisure’s Best Hotel Spas in Singapore.
Featuring treatments themed around water and bathing rituals from across the globe, expect sensorial indulgences complete with access to spa facilities in the Wet Lounge including Finnish cedar saunas and eucalyptus scented steam chambers.
The spa customizes treatments across massage experiences, body pampering and face indulgences from the Black Soap and Rassoul Hammam Ritual, to a Warm Jade Stone Massage and the signature Vichy Shower Massage on an infrared heated marble bed.
The spa also houses a Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio by acclaimed pedicurist-podiatrist Bastien Gonzalez. His Singapore outpost features signature nail treatments which have conferred him the global reputation of a foot virtuoso.
Whether you go for the art, the cocktails, the spa, or a combination of the three, satisfy your summer travel craving with a stay at The St. Regis Singapore.
