It’s not often you’ll come across a city property that has two air-conditioned indoor tennis courts (and two outdoor ones), two pools, a spa, a gym and several very exciting food and beverage options as well as sumptuous rooms and suites. But you’ll get that and more at the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore.
The property is within a stone’s throw (or at most a 15-minute drive) of pretty much anywhere you’ll want to go in town, including the very large and visually stunning ION Orchard shopping complex with its myriad of shops (high street to high-end) and restaurants. Set back off the main road, the hotel’s position ensures tranquillity, even when you’re sitting outdoors, cocktail in hand, within the One-Ninety Bar’s enclosed, streetside patio.
Drink up, and then make your way upstairs to the Michelin-starred Jiang-Nan Chung restaurant serving Cantonese food. The restaurant itself is beautiful, decorated to reflect life in a traditional riverside village. The One-Ninety Restaurant, adjacent to the bar, has a continental menu, offering everything from Indian food to freshly-made pizzas. Want something lighter? Nibble on the loaf of bread that’s put on the table and go for the salad buffet. Prices are based on the formula you choose, not the dish itself. Throughout the hotel and everywhere you go, service is everything you’d expect at a Four Seasons hotel, and the staff here will ensure your stay is exceptional.
The 255 rooms are beautiful, as are the public areas (all were renovated in 2018). The overall style is understated and elegant, accommodating, comfortable and very much in sync with the local culture. Rooms are decorated in non-intrusive shades of beige and brown with one wall panelled in dusky blue. On that wall is a display of heritage-inspired Peranakan tiles, evoking memories of a bygone era. The overall colour scheme was inspired by the city’s gracious Swan Lake which, incidentally, is down the road in Singapore’s Botanic Gardens, the country’s only Unesco world heritage site and worth a visit.
If you’re looking for more space, the suites are pretty special. Entry-level Royal Suites start at 155 sq m (1,700 sq ft) and come with a spacious bedroom and bathroom, a work area, dressing table, living room, dining room and a kitchenette. All rooms and suites come with a Lavazza coffee machine and motorised blinds to block out the sunshine or night lights of your garden or city views.
