It’s the first of two Six Senses properties to open here this year

They may be better known for their luxury resorts and spas around the world, set in idyllic locations like Maldives and Fiji, but that’s not stopping Six Senses from opening their very first city hotel—and they're doing so right here in Singapore on Duxton Road. Why, lucky us.

They’ve chosen to take over the shophouse spaces formerly occupied by The Duxton Hotel Singapore and appropriately renamed it Six Senses Duxton, now fully refurbished and restored by acclaimed British designer Anouska Hempel. Using a diverse influence of Chinese, Malay and European elements, she’s given each of the 49 guestrooms and suites a unique individuality across eight themed categories so that no two rooms are exactly the same.

And of all the OTT amenities they can provide, they’re actually offering in-house guests traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) services by Professor Zhang Mao Ji (from Long Zhong Tang clinic), a physician with over 40 years of experience. You can look for him for health screenings and consultations, or get medicinal herbs from his dispensary there.

It’s tempting to stay there just to check out the TCM service, but if you’re (like us) more interested in comfy rooms, great service and good food, we’re sure we’ll be getting the full Six Senses treatment here too.

For now, we know that there’ll be a contemporary fine dining Chinese restaurant named Yellow Pot, as well as an adjacent premium lobby bar themed after antiquarian libraries. What’s interesting too is that when sister property Six Senses Maxwell (located a short walk away) opens later in the year, guests from both properties get to share the facilities offered.


Six Senses Duxton opens Apr 15 at 83 Duxton Road. There’s an opening special of 15 percent off the best available rate for those who wish to stay there by June.
