Six Senses Duxton Opens in Singapore
Six Senses is known for its wellness-focused retreats in far-flung destinations like the Seychelles and Fiji—but this month, the brand makes its urban debut in Singapore. Acclaimed British designer Anouska Hempel meticulously restored a row of heritage trading houses in old Chinatown’s Tanjong Pagar to create Six Senses Duxton. Each of the property's 49 guestrooms and suites is slightly different: Interiors are decorated with Portuguese shutters, Chinese porcelain-chip friezes, and calligraphy wallpaper from Hempel’s personal collection. As is typical of Six Senses properties, wellness takes center stage here, too. A highlight is the appointment of a traditional Chinese doctor who offers readings, health recommendations, and a medicinal herbal dispensary. From $297; sixsenses.com.
