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
Ritz Carlton proved to be a great place to stay for a couple of days whilst in transit. Great location, first class spa, gym and pool along with excellent service. The rooms are a little more traditional than modern but very spacious and bright with incredible views. A special mention to Head Concierge Adam who went out of his way to ensure my experience of Singapore and Ritz Carlton was first class
Great facility and friendly staff. The only issue I have with this location is that it is a non-participating member of the Marriott Bonvoy rewards program, so your current status means nothing here. No points and no stays will be posted to your account. Website has the facility listed part of the Marriott Bonvoy program. I fail to understand how it is under the Marriott brand and does not participate in the rewards system. I won't stay here again for this reason only. Otherwise, great place to visit.
Me and my hubby had a wonderful high tea at Chihuly Lounge this evening. I special want to thanks to your service staff named Wuhda ( I hope I meation her named correctly). For her warm welcome and smile while we enter your lounge, she made us felt special . With her patience introducing, we had chosen what we want. Nevertheless, with her prompt service too. Lastly, also need to thanks to Ceasy Lee with her attentive service. Ritz Calton Singapore, your staffs really deserve with 6 star service. ????????????
