– M Social Singapore –
Located on the riverside at Robertson Quay, M Social Singapore is the brainchild of world renowned designer Philippe Starck. Its avant-garde atmosphere in every room and public area is inspired by the Memphis style. Such a perfect blend of textures, bold colors, and luxury accents is aimed at the millennial generation. The hotel’s main target group comprises young adults of the early twenty-first century who have dominated most of the technological world. Taking its concierge role to a new level, a robot butler named “Aura” is on hand to serve you a bottle of drinking water and a towel if you want it delivered to your room. The in-house restaurant Beast & Butterflies is a separate unit from the main lobby. The design provides more privacy for dining away from the heavier traffic of the main area. Stylish decor and alluring lighting ideas make it a perfect place to meet for business or just chitchatting and taking in beautiful river views.

– The Oasia Hotel Downtown Singapore –
An oasis of clam, the hotel beautifully ensconced in central Singapore has earned a reputation as the city’s living sky garden. Not only is it the center of visual interest, the distinctive bright tower with vertical gardens is originally conceived as safe haven for birds. The façade is crafted of aluminum cladding designed to filter light, provide shade, and promote natural air movement, making the boutique hotel a perfect place to wind down from city life outside. The Oasia is admired for sleek interior design and friendly earth tone colors. Apparently, it has become the icon of tropical vertical gardening currently trending across the Region. It’s the brainchild of WOHA Architects, a group specialized in green buildings on large scales.

– The Warehouse Hotel –
Built in 1895, the Warehouse Hotel sits on the bank of the Singapore River at Robertson Quay. The beautifully restored heritage building was once upon a time a warehouse in an area that was the hotbed of secret societies, liquor distilleries, and underground activities. Today the former warehouse on the quayside has transformed to became one of the stylishly unique destinations offering the finest experiences in the history and attractions of the community surrounding it.
The renovation project was the idea of the owners, The Lo & Behold Group, and the design firm Asylum. Together they turned the old “godown” into an ultrachic exclusive property showcasing the heritage of the island nation. Drop into the open bar with stunning views and an intimate atmosphere. It’s worth a visit.
