SIX SENSES MAXWELL Singapore


LOCATION: Smack bang in the middle of Singapore’s Tanjong Pagar district and 25 minutes from Changi airport.


FIRST IMPRESSIONS: You’ll feel like you’ve been transported back to the 1920s, a time when Singapore was full of colonial-era buildings rather than the high-rises of today. Six Senses Maxwell isn’t like your typical Singaporean modern hotel: it’s just three storeys tall and its facade and art deco design details hark back to days gone by. While the property might be part of the Six Senses collection, Maxwell seems more akin to a one-off boutique hotel.


THE FACTS: The property has 138 rooms and suites across seven categories. The rooms aren’t particularly big, but they are comfortable and stylish. Six Senses Maxwell is the brand’s ÃiVon` ÕÀL>n hoÌilÆ Ìhi wÀÃÌ Ü>à ni>ÀLÞ «Ào«iÀÌÞ -iÝ -inÃià Duxton (located just a few streets away) which opened a few months before Maxwell in 2018. For a relatively small property, there’s plenty of places for guests to enjoy, especially on the dining front. The lobby bar, Cook & Tras -oVi>l iLÀ>ÀÞ] ià wlli` ÜiÌh ÃhilÛià ov Lookà >n` h>à > ÛiLi not dissimilar to that of a private members’ club – think low lighting and trendy cocktails. Guests can grab Singaporean- inspired sharing-plate dishes here. For cocktails and artisanal spirits, recommend Garcha’s bar. The main dining room, Brasserie, serves southern European-style cuisine, while Max’s Rooftop Bar creates light bites from its own garden. A small outdoor lap pool and a gym can also be found on the roof.


EXPLORE: There’s plenty to see and do in this fascinating island state. Gardens by the Bay is worth visiting during the day and after dark. In the daytime, explore SuperTree Grove and venture into the ‘branches’ by heading up to the OCBC Skyway. Make sure you time your evening visit to coincide with the epic Garden Rhapsody lightshow (7.45pm and 8.45pm daily). For a cocktail, head to Lavo on the rooftop of Marina Bay Sands for an epic view of the city. Or if it’s a view of the famous three-winged hotel you’re wanting, head to Clifford Pier or Fullerton Bay Hotel. The Botanic Gardens


are beautiful, especially the area dedicated to orchids, but if shopping is what your client wants, recommend they head to Orchard Road for big-name brands, or Haji Lane for independent, boutique shops. To cool off after a busy day, head to the hotel’s ice cream cart, located just outside the property, for a complimentary home-made ice cream.


WOW: What impressed me most was seeing Six Senses, a brand known for its resort and beach properties, adapting perfectly to an urban setting.


BOOK IT: Rooms at Six Senses Maxwell lead in at £180.
