Electrifying and energetic, Singapore has long been a global powerhouse in a compact space, offering a mesmerizing blend of cultures, culinary delights, and vibrant entertainment. Now, adding a new chapter to the city’s allure is The Singapore EDITION, a luxurious haven set to redefine hospitality standards. Having opened its doors on the 9th of November, this exclusive hotel promises a unique blend of sophistication, style, and tropical charm.
A Visionary Creation
The Singapore EDITION, the first Southeast Asia outpost in the EDITION brand’s portfolio, is the brainchild of the renowned hotelier Ian Schrager, collaborating with the expertise of Cap Atelier for interior design. The 204-room masterpiece stands proudly just off the west end of Singapore’s iconic upper Orchard Road.
Firmly grounded in EDITION’s commitment to refined, timeless design, the hotel seamlessly integrates the dynamic energy of a major metropolis with a warm-weather resort ambience. The architectural marvel, designed by Safdie Architects and local studio DP Architects, features a head-turning silhouette that captures the essence of Singapore in a fresh, modern way.
An Oasis of Tranquility
Upon entering The Singapore EDITION, guests are greeted by a private, white-hued oasis, a stark contrast to the bustling upper Orchard Road. The lobby, adorned with gold leaf-covered domed ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, offers a serene escape. The hotel’s commitment to nature is evident, with sweeping vistas and greenery seamlessly integrated, including a skypark and a sunken garden.
Every level of the hotel unfolds like a theatrical play, offering unique and unforgettable experiences. The Lobby Bar, with its sharp pink velvet decor, rose-coloured marble pool table, and Lalique-inspired crystal decanters, sets the stage for a vibrant and sophisticated atmosphere. The high vaulted-ceilinged restaurant, FYSH at EDITION, spearheaded by acclaimed Australian chef Josh Niland, introduces sustainable seafood-focused steakhouse dining amidst a luxurious setting.
Seamless Comfort in Guest Rooms
The 204 guest rooms, spread over six light-filled floors, provide a seamless and soothing experience. Each room is meticulously designed, featuring warm white rugs, customized white oak-planked floors, and broad bay windows offering picturesque views. The hotel ensures a comfortable and serene haven for its guests, combining sophistication with simplicity.
Spa, Courtyard, and Event Spaces
The second-floor spa, with seven treatment rooms and his-and-her changing suites, offers a rejuvenating experience. The expansive timber-decked garden courtyard, reminiscent of ancient Chinese temples, leads to event spaces suitable for cocktails, product launches, and receptions. The hotel’s commitment to integrating nature into its design is evident in the garden courtyard, providing Eden-esque vantage points.
The crowning glory of The Singapore EDITION is its swimming pool and rooftop terrace, accessible via The Roof bar. The 43-meter pool, seemingly floating above the garden courtyard, offers surreal views through a transparent acrylic oculus. The Roof, with its semi-al fresco setting, provides the perfect spot to relax, enjoy Southeast Asian favourites, and indulge in classic cocktails infused with tropical notes.
Unveiling the Epitome of Hospitality
By seamlessly fusing the indulgent comfort and service of a luxury hotel with the refined glamour and energy of the tropics, The Singapore EDITION marks a high-water mark of hospitality. The hotel has opened its doors for an exclusive preview on November 9, 2023, with limited-time opening rates starting from SGD$680+++ per room, per night.
