French design whiz Jacques Garcia brings his elegant Euro aesthetics—silk rugs, plump velvet chairs, colonial prints—to pre-war shop-houses
Unlike its relative on Duxton Road (an almost in-your-face spread of decadent chinoiserie, calligraphy wallpaper, and ceramic apothecary jars), Six Senses’ Maxwell edition is quieter: an exposed brick exterior gives way to more pared-back in-room flourishes like brocade-wrapped headboards and marble minibars, and service is both discreet and conscientious. From your welcome drink and property tour at check-in to a revolving door of complimentary cultural perks, which might include a lobby-side Chinese medicine consultation, you’ll appreciate the attentive (and multilingual) staff. Though the property sits squarely in Singapore’s foodie hub, Tanjong Pagar, its own dining options are forces to be reckoned with, ranging from Singaporean tapas at the library to French-accented dishes like lobster bisque and steak frites at the Murray Terrace Brasserie. Bookend your meal with a pre-dinner cocktail at the property’s Rose Lounge, where the drinks menu is dedicated solely to bubbly, and a nightcap at Garcha’s, a small-batch spirits bar.
In the Area
Though there’s no gym onsite, the hotel’s bi-weekly yoga lessons (held at the bijou green space behind the property) and rentable Tokyo bikes provide just the right holiday-friendly dose of physical activity. Pedal to the world-renowned Maxwell Food Center, home to the city-state’s most famous chicken and rice stalls; feast on Malaysian classics at the Coconut Club, in Ann Siang Hill; then make your way to the exquisite Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, which is said to house the sage’s left canine recovered from his funeral pyre in northern India. The boutiques of Orchard Road are also just a ten-minute taxi ride away.
How to Get There
We had 4 set dinner meals, and the manager was very accomodating.
The food was nice and unique
We also proceeded to have some wine at the Bar area which was very European styled. Nice soft music and great atmosphere. Will definately return
I had to travel to SG for business and combined it with my wife's birthday. We got upgraded and really enjoyed our stay. I like that they do breakfast on order and not a buffet. This means its freshly cooked and there is less food waste.
We both also really like the heritage design and will certainly return
If i return to Singapore, this will be the place i would stay at again and again and again. We travel often but very rarely does a hotel meet our expectations like the Six Senses Maxwell did: the rooms were clean and sleek and elegant at the same time. Coffee and tea was available in the rooms. The turn-down service and room service ladies were extremely professional and friendly, offering ice, water and clean towels even in the evening. Little things can make such a huge difference and that's why i would always choose the personalized service over a huge anonymous luxury hotel. Compliments to the staff at the Six Senses Maxwell, please continue offering this impeccable service.
