Step inside the vast beauty of Six Senses Maxwell

With the December opening of Six Senses Maxwell, this hotel along with its sister hotel, Six Senses Duxton, occupy two heritage buildings – bringing the exciting elements of luxury and sophistication to Singapore’s vibrant Chinatown community. Six Senses Maxwell is designed by internationally–acclaimed French architect and designer Jacques Garcia, who has managed to introduce this alternative aesthetic with his signature European style, melding tradition and modernity.

If Six Senses Duxton is anything to go by, attention to detail at this sister hotel shall be undoubtedly pristine throughout the seven unique room categories across 120 guestrooms and suites — from brass, lacquer and marble minibars to the handmade Lefroy Brooks bathroom fixtures. Always on the lookout for unique localised experiences, we are impressed with guests having the opportunity to step out and enjoy the TanjongPagar and Chinatown enclaves consisting of two-to-three story shophouses, of an era gone by.

What were once opium dens, warehouses and small shops is now an unrecognisable and vibrant meld of upscale boutiques, themed bars and intimately lit restaurants hiding in plain sight, some arguably the best in South East Asia. ◼
