Six Senses group is long known for having a knack for effortlessly erecting five-star resorts in far-flung, long-forgotten, nature-flourishing regions. We’re talking luxe properties in the likes of Fiji, where villas boast backyards of sandy beaches and turquoise lagoons, and China that has guests travel upwards to oriental quarters perched amongst the peaks of Qing Cheng Mountains.
So it comes as a surprise that the resort chain’s latest foray was constructed in Singapore – a cosmopolitan country where swaying palm trees are formidable skyscrapers and the melodious ocean waves are the hums of motorised vehicles.
Without tapping into nature’s bounty for its aesthetic appeal, Singapore’s Six Senses Duxton more than makes up for it with a facade that marries both style and heritage together. The swanky abode follows the chain’s age-old ethos of being eco-conscious, sustainably restored before awash with a stylish mix of Chinese, Malay and European elements.

An eccentric array of black, gold and yellow accents grabs your attention when you first set foot in the hotel. The whirl of colours is further complemented by oriental elements such as Chinese screens, massive fans and communal black lacquer table, painting a setting of Chinatown’s bygone era.
