The Four Seasons Hotel Singapore has recently re-opened their flagship restaurant, One-Ninety. The newly-transformed and revamp space now features a botanical-inspired ambience as well as wholesome Provençal cuisine enlivened by an Asian twist. The latest dining destination along Singapore's most famous shopping strip has design elements that is prevalent in its refurbished rooms and suites (check out my review of the Four Seasons Executive Suite!). Back in October 2018, the crowning jewels (The Suite Collection) of this luxurious property were also unveiled and the four distinctive residences, led by interior designers HBA, feature key motifs, textures and colour palettes that acknowledges Singapore as a dynamic, cosmopolitan nation with a storied history.
Located on the 18th floor, the Royal Suite is inspired by the tropical splendour of nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens, a lush UNESCO World Heritage Site. The newly added chic open pantry and unique sofa seating unites living and dining space and is ideal for casual entertaining. Cloaked in neutrals, black and verdant green, and dressed in cane and linen textures, with local palm, fruit and animal motifs in artworks and accessories, the new décor reflects a relaxed and vibrant ambience.
In the surrounds of hand-picked, book lined walls of the privileged, agreements were oft sealed with a simple gentlemen’s handshake and a toast of brandy and a glass of whiskey. Ensconced in exclusivity on the top guest room floor of Four Seasons Hotel Singapore and generously sized, the Governor Suite features pear wood millwork offset with stylish contemporary furnishings in smoky light grey, dark wood detailing and amber tones for a smart, stately ambience with a panoramic boulevard view.
As colourful and rich as the intricate designs of the kamchen pottery featured in-suite, the Peranakan culture is a unique heritage that blossomed since the 15th Century as a result of inter-marriages between the local Straits community with non-Straits descendants, when Singapore was a major trading port. This cultivated a beautiful cross-cultural appreciation in Singapore, evident through distinctive art styles, fashion, language and recipes. Accented with existing Straits Chinese elements through chic modern furniture in a turquoise, grey and dusty rose scheme, the suite is located on the 19th floor and exudes a unique grace and charm.
Evoking the journey of Singapore from colonial outpost to a modern nation, the largest suite at the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore -the Presidential Suite-is eloquently showcased through contrasts of black and white, symbolic of old news footage and photos, with accents of gold,symbolic of its hopes and prosperity. Inspired by the grand colonial houses that are till today, still standing proud on the island, the suite located on the 19th floor offers a breath-taking view of the city skyline and is appointed with sleek contemporary furniture in a black, white and persimmon scheme that complements the existing pear wood millwork and black marble floor.
