"The Skylight Suite’s living room"
"The vibrant reception at Six Senses Duxton"
That quiet respite you so desperately crave is now but a stone’s throw away. Luxury hotel brand, Six Senses, known for its lush retreats in far-ﬂung locations, has opened a city hotel for the ﬁrst time in the eclectic streets of Tanjong Pagar. The original 19th-century row of shophouses along Duxton Road has been reimagined into a diverse mix of Chinese, Malay and European elements, dressed in opulent black and gold hues by acclaimed British designer Anouska Hempel. The urban oasis also includes in-house Traditional Chinese Medicine physicians, complimentary daily tinctures comprising Chinese herbs, and community-based activities such as walking tours and outdoor yoga.

Located in Mayfair, mere minutes away from London’s famous shopping haven, Selfridges, The Beaumont is a treasure as exquisite as the historical, Neoclassical-style building it resides in. The brainchild of restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, the hotel boasts 73 rooms, one of which is a conceptual suite by British sculptor Antony Gormley that is aptly named “ROOM” and comes outﬁtted with a giant jigsawlike facade. And even though The Beaumont is steps away from one of London’s busiest streets, the property achieves a feeling of intimacy through the reﬁned use of polished rosewood, elegant bronze mirroring details, and graphic checkerboard ﬂooring. The overall effect is a stellar meld of the traditional and contemporary—with just the right hints of Art Deco thrown into the mix.
