Following the highly successful opening of Six Senses Duxton, sister property Six Senses Maxwell is scheduled to open on 1 December 2018.
Six Senses Maxwell is the second of two heritage buildings that together form Six Senses Singapore — split across two buildings and five minutes walking distance away. It is housed in a colonial-style 19th-century building that has received the Urban Redevelopment Authority Architectural Heritage Award.
While Six Senses Duxton portrays Anouska Hempel’s iconic eclecticism, the 138-room Six Senses Maxwell, designed by internationally-acclaimed French architect and designer Jacques Garcia, offers an alternative aesthetic with his signature European style.
While paying homage to the building’s storied past, Garcia’s deep attention to detail is showcased throughout seven room categories across 138 guestrooms and suites — from the brass, lacquer and marble minibars to the handmade Lafroy Brooks bathroom fixtures.
Six Senses Maxwell houses five food and beverage concepts — ranging from Murray Terrace, a classic European-style brasserie, to Cook & Tras, a social library restaurant and bar influenced by heritage Straits cuisine.
The Rose Lounge & Bar features banquette seating, club chairs, cocktail tables and bar seating, and offers champagne alongside white and rosé wines, spritzers and the signature Rose Bellini. Quintessential spirits bar Garcha’s serves a collection of spirits, comprising small batch and artisanal whisky, tequila, gin, rum and vodka.
Four of the five food and beverage concepts are located on the ground floor lined with lush tropical foliage that follows the length of the building. Meanwhile, the building rooftop features Max’s Edible Garden complementing the 25-meter rooftop lap pool and gymnasium.
On the wellness front, spa pods will open in early 2019 where guests and locals can enjoy signature massages, facials, and beauty treatments.
New neighbourhood experiences will include the MacRitchie Treetops Walk, Botanic Gardens Exploration Tour, Civic District Discovery Walk, and a Black & White Iconic Heritage Homes Tour. These complement the current guest offerings at Six Senses Duxton which include complimentary Traditional Chinese Medicine consultations, tea appreciation sessions, yoga and well-received local heritage tours.
As part of the Six Senses experience, all these will be available to guests of either hotel.
