With a strong emphasis on design, the Ritz Carlton greets guests with a beautifully landscaped curved driveway, opulent glass-roofed lobby and a hodgepodge of contemporary art work including pieces by Andy Warhol and Frank Stella (part of the hotel’s 4,200 piece art collection). Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Kevin Roche, the 32-floor, 608-room property promises rises above the competitive crowd of hotel chains in the area with its tasteful, understated style.
Bed & Bath
Besides offering outrageous views of the waterfront and Singapore skyline, its rooms (renovated in 2011) are the spacious to say the least, with a standard room covering a whole 549 square feet. Stark white linen, light pine wood furnishings, pastel beige divans, a mirrored wall and white orchids all lend a clean-lined, Asian-tinged look. Regardless of category, all rooms feature state-of-the-art amenities including iPod docks, DVD players and wall-mounted flat-screen TVs. But most impressive of all are the phenomenal panoramas on display – which can be seen from the comfort of your bath tub.
Of the four in-house restaurants, Greenhouse Restaurant may have the most loyal following from both visitors and locals with its award-winning Sunday vintage champagne brunch that serves unlimited Moët & Chandon and freshly shucked oysters. Summer Pavilion dishes up classic Cantonese dishes and traditional dim sum amidst a bamboo garden, while the famous Shirashi Japanese restaurant serves sashimi and kaiseki menus. The spa houses hot and cold plunge pools and offers a range of massages, body scrubs and facials.
In the Area
Head across the road to catch a ride on the Singapore Flyer, the world’s largest observation wheel, and then stroll along the waterfront to admire the architecture or catch a musical at The Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay. Just a short walk away is the Marina Bay Sands, home to the famous 57th-floor Sky Park and pool, Singapore’s biggest casino and the new ArtScience Museum. For a different experience, immerse yourself in the tropical greenery of the city-state at Gardens by the Bay, a 101-hectare park built to amplify Singapore’s status as a “City in a Garden”.
How to Get There
We spent two nights here in a club room and everything was fantastic. The club lounge is superb....probably the best club lounge we have ever been in. Special thanks to Sheila in the lounge. Well done to the management team. You are running a fantastic hotel. If you are going to Singapore then you should pick this hotel. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
The night buffet is fantastic. Lobster and oysters are the best. Wide choice of different cuisine, the ambience is sophisticated and elegant. The Chinese corner is outstanding in order of quality of food and choice
I had the pleasure in staying at this “Beautiful” property for 3 days whilst I conducted a site visit. This property by far is the Best of the Best. They still carry the old traditional real Ritz Carlton values and customer service. I’m talking when the Ritz was the Ritz before being purchased by Marriott.
Every staff member that encountered provided me stellar service with a smile. I truly enjoyed the decor of the property and the fine outlets that they have.
The serounding area activities only added to what became a picture perfect property.
If ever you are contemplating a vacation in Singapore and you’re researching a hotel to stay, STOP! Why research. I just have you your answer!!
I will be back in March and unfortunately they have assigned me to stay at Marina Sands Hotel. I will at least look over to the other side with a smile.
Full disclosure... we always have stayed at Raffles while in Singapore, but due to its closure for renovation (much needed I must add), we decided to try the Ritz-Carlton Millenia. We opted for a glorious deluxe one bedroom concierge level suite and were absolutely thrilled with the gorgeous accommodation, stunning Marina views and superb concierge level support, not to mention the wonderful breakfast, lunch and cocktail hour food and beverages in the lounge. A complimentary car service is also available to take you to nearby sights, etc. (on first come/first serve basis). The hotel is very well located, and convenient to almost anything you want...nice that it is attached to the Millenia Mall too. All the amenities, including Asprey toiletries, lovely turn down service, etc. Some great restaurants within the hotel as well...and a bakery to die for!
We’re so delighted with our experience that we are returning there for another stay in just a week. Oh...and check out the architecture and art work. Wow!
The rooms were fantastic (especially the bathrooms) with fantastic views of the city! The staff was excellent and a special thanks to Aylmer Tan for making a special effort to make us feel welcome and like VIPs. The hotel is well situated close to the Marina area that is very walk-able! We swam in the beautiful pool each evening and totally enjoyed our stay!
