Location

Located right above the Tanjong Pagar MRT station, the modern hotel structure nestles comfortably amid low-rise heritage shophouses and towering skyscrapers. The financial district itself is just a three-minute train stop away at the Raffles Place interchange station. Change trains there for a quick journey to the the premier Orchard Road shopping locale. A 10-minute taxi ride from the hotel would get you to the Orchard vicinity easily too.

Style & character

Singapore’s garden city vibe is all around in artful abundance. The hotel’s modern interiors, with its muted earthy palette, are enlivened with vivid botanical motifs and sculptural lighting. The lobby houses Singapour Je T’aime, a stunning nine-metre-long art installation of shimmering hand blown crystalline leaves that twists and whirls high up across the ceiling. Racines, the restaurant on the fifth floor, has an even more eye-catching set-up, with floor-to-ceiling windows flooding the area with natural light while showcasing the rich lush greenery beyond.

Service & facilities

Check-in is seamless and takes just five minutes. The thoughtful gesture of a refreshing lemongrass pandan drink with honey and a cold towel is appreciated on arrival. Staff are polite and enthusiastic throughout the hotel, with the friendly warmth especially apparent in the restaurants and bars. The 24-hour SoFit fitness centre, 30-metre long infinity pool and lushly landscaped gardens are highlights. There is also easy access to the Virgin Active gym next door.
