It is a new property with an eye catching fluid, modern and green design. Located in the CBD area, adjacent to the famous China Town, and within walking distance of the Marina Bay sands, Clarke Quay and Boat Quay areas. Due to its location, the property looks very stand alone and distanced from the hum drum of the magnificent city, until you actually venture out to the China Town Area. In totality a good business hotel in the CBD area for a short stay.
I stayed in a club room on the 13th floor, overlooking the Clarke Quay and Boat Quay areas on the S'pore river. The room continued the design spirit of being eco-friendly and was entirely wooden with Japanese style sliding doors separating the bath and living area. The window was a huge glass facade overlooking a hanging garden from the 14th floor and the city beyond. Due to its strange design or probably my room location, I felt that I needed to keep my curtains down to prevent guests from other rooms peering in, I may have been wrong though. Room amenities were ok, but could have been better. Lighting options were few and gave a feeling of too much light or too little for comfort, this needs to be worked upon. Room service never refilled the moisturizer, shampoo and conditioner during my 4 days stay, which was strange for a 5star hotel.
The good thing about this hotel is the continuous lobby, bar, gardens, water bodies, all day dining all in a straight line. It was very unique and a welcome change from the typical closed door feel most hotels provide. The sense of freedom was over-arching and typical of a hotel imbibing the green/ eco friendly design.
Executive lounge was a nice experience and "Nicka" the lounge manager is most helpful and caring for her guests. Try the chicken deep fried wraps and crab duck rolls in the evening along with cocktails. They are yum!!!
