SINGAPORE: Following the highly successful opening of Six Senses Duxton, sister property Six Senses Maxwell is scheduled to open on 1 December, 2018. Six Senses Maxwell is the second of two heritage buildings that together form Six Senses Singapore. Split across two buildings and five minutes walking distance apart, both are an easy wander apart and add a touch of luxe to the vibrant Chinatown community.
While Six Senses Duxton portrays Anouska Hempel’s iconic East-meets-West eclecticism, the 120-room Six Senses Maxwell, designed by internationally-acclaimed French architect and designer Jacques Garcia, offers an alternative aesthetic with his signature European style, melding tradition and modernity.
“Six Senses Maxwell allows us to fully introduce the brand into our first city location, and honour the owners’ commitment to complete the Six Senses experience in Singapore,” said General Manager Murray Aitken, who is responsible for bringing together both Six Senses Duxton and Six Senses Maxwell as one. “We’re incredibly proud of the progress of Six Senses Duxton; and we’re on track now for a December opening of Maxwell, where guests of both hotels will be able to utilise the facilities at either location and enjoy a host of crafted experiences with our trusted partners in the neighbourhood.”
Situated within the eclectic heart of Singapore’s bustling Chinatown where rich cultural heritage meets modern vibrancy, Six Senses Maxwell is housed in a colonial-style 19th century heritage building that has received the Urban Redevelopment Authority Architectural Heritage Award. Sustainably restored by celebrated designer Jacques Garcia (Hôtel Costes Paris, The NoMad New York City, L’oscar London), Six Senses Maxwell exudes a timeless sophistication blended with stylish European sensibilities.
While paying homage to the building’s storied past, yet still presenting his affirmed baroque style, Garcia’s deep attention to detail is showcased throughout seven unique room categories across 120 guest rooms and suites—from the brass, lacquer and marble mini bars to the handmade Lafroy Brooks bathroom fixtures.
The interior public spaces, all unique given the architectural style of the original building, come together harmoniously and add to the hotel’s charm. Six Senses Maxwell houses five food and beverage concepts — ranging from Murray Terrace, a classic European-style brasserie, to Cook & Tras, a social library restaurant and bar influenced by heritage Straits cuisine.
The beautifully appointed Rose Lounge & Bar features banquette seating, club chairs, cocktail tables and bar seating, and will offer champagne and other bubbles alongside white and rosé wines, spritzers and the signature Rose Bellini. Whilst quintessential spirits bar Garcha’s will serve an impressive collection of spirits, comprising small batch and artisanal whisky, tequila, gin, rum and vodka. Guests will also be able to enjoy their spirits served tableside from an after-dinner drinks trolley.
Four of the five food and beverage concepts will be situated on the ground floor lined with lush tropical foliage that follows the length of the building, where guests can enjoy the outdoor seating area of the charming five-foot terrace. Corner side, the old-fashioned ice-cream tricycle is expected to become a popular complimentary treat for in-house guests. While the building rooftop will feature Max’s Edible Garden complementing the 82-foot rooftop lap pool and gymnasium.
On the wellness front, Six Senses Spa Pods will open in early 2019. Here guests and locals can enjoy signature massages, facials, and beauty treatments. Relaxation on So Sound Loungers take body, mind and rejuvenation to a whole new dimension, whilst personal trainers and yoga classes round out the Six Senses Singapore wellness experience.
New neighbourhood experiences will include the MacRitchie Treetops Walk, Botanic Gardens Exploration Tour, Civic District Discovery Walk, and a Black & White Iconic Heritage Homes Tour. These complement the current offerings at Six Senses Duxton which include a complimentary Traditional Chinese Medicine consultation, tea appreciation session, yoga and well-received local heritage tours. As part of the unique Six Senses experience, all these will be available to guests of either hotel.
Community will continue to be a key commitment for the hotel in line with the company’s philosophy of local sensitivity and global sensibility.
