The highly anticipated arrival of The Singapore EDITION in the heart of the island-state’s most iconic neighborhood signals a high-water mark of hospitality.
In the heart of Singapore‘s iconic upper Orchard Road, a new landmark has emerged, reshaping the city’s hospitality landscape. The Singapore EDITION, the first Southeast Asia outpost for the renowned EDITION brand, brings a blend of sophistication, innovation, and luxury that transcends the ordinary. This highly anticipated project, conceived by the visionary Ian Schrager in collaboration with Cap Atelier and Safdie Architects, not only captures the essence of Singapore but elevates it to unprecedented heights.
Designed by the esteemed Moshe Safdie and local studio DP Architects, The Singapore EDITION is not just a hotel; it’s a work of art. The building’s exterior, with its head-turning silhouette, seamlessly blends into the vibrant cityscape. The use of bronze and glass, coupled with a cobbled stone driveway, creates a sense of arrival that is both grand and private, setting the tone for the opulence within.
The architects have masterfully incorporated nature into the hotel’s design, providing guests with sweeping vistas and greenery at every turn. From the skypark to the sunken garden, the integration of lush landscapes offers a tranquil escape from the bustling Orchard Road shopping district, reinforcing the hotel’s commitment to blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior spaces.
Step into The Singapore EDITION, and you’re greeted by a white marbled Lobby, a minimalist masterpiece that contrasts simplicity with a stunning domed ceiling covered in gold leaf. The lobby’s floor-to-ceiling windows, adorned with plantation louvres, usher in natural light, evoking the tropics. Each level of the hotel unfolds like a theatrical play, offering unique experiences that, when combined, create an alchemy of magic.
The Lobby Bar is a visual feast, with sharp pink velvet interiors, a rose-colored pool table of Calacutta marble, and oversized pink backlit bar displays. Christian Liaigre doe leather chairs and Lalique-inspired crystal decanters contribute to the overall opulence. Adjacent to the lobby, FYSH at EDITION, spearheaded by the acclaimed Josh Niland, offers a sustainable seafood-focused steakhouse menu in a timber-lined restaurant with a leafy conservatory.
The spacious guest rooms, spread across six light-filled floors, are a testament to meticulous design. Customized white oak-planked floors, warm white rugs, and hand-sewn damask throws create an ambiance of sophisticated simplicity. The rooms are designed for comfort, featuring deep-seated sofas, blackout shades, and electronically adjustable exterior louvres. The attention to detail ensures an unforgettable stay, appealing to the discerning guest.
Wellness and Leisure:
The second-floor spa is a mood-lit sanctuary with seven treatment rooms, thermal pools, an ice fountain, sauna, steam room, and a well-equipped gym. The elongated rectangular garden courtyard, reminiscent of ancient Chinese temples, serves as a focal point. Framed by black-tiled pools and lush greenery, this courtyard connects seamlessly to event spaces, making it an ideal venue for various occasions.
Events and Conferencing:
The hotel boasts a versatile 340-guest events space with a 600-sq m pillar-less gallery. Equipped with state-of-the-art multimedia technology, these spaces are bathed in diffused natural light and can be transformed for any occasion, from high-society weddings to corporate meetings.
The Rooftop Oasis:
Saving its bravura moment for the end, The Singapore EDITION’s rooftop terrace features a 43-meter pool with transparent acrylic oculus, providing surreal views into the garden courtyard below. The Roof bar, with its semi-al fresco setting, offers a relaxed ambiance enveloped by luxuriant greenery. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy Southeast Asian favorites and classic cocktails infused with tropical notes as the balmy tropical evenings descend.
