Fabulous four in Singapore

by posted in NEWS

Six Senses Duxton and Six Senses Maxwell in Singapore celebrate their colorful heritage and neighborhood through four unique experiences that embrace community, wellness, customs and sustainability.

Community

Our city hotels are an easy walk apart in the Tanjong Pagar community of Singapore. However, if that proves thirsty work, the father and daughter team at the intimate Yi Xing Xuan teahouse are experts in the ancient art of tea brewing. Your tête-à-tête session reveals the history of tea, from where the first tealeaf was grown and how it was distributed around the globe, to how different varieties can be distinguished from looking at the leaves, branches, aromas, colors and more. It goes without saying that you can take a few sips as you get to grips with it all.

Wellness

Next up we focus on wellness, with a meditative session of yoga under an old, large Angsana tree with Heritage Tree status. The wide-spreading crown provides a welcoming shelter as you gently refocus through the quiet, blissful yoga session conducted by Sue Sze, our community partner.

At Six Senses Duxton, a cozy corner welcomes guests to a consultation with traditional Chinese medicine practitioners from Long Zhong Tang, a full-service traditional Chinese medicine house, just across the street from the hotel. The experience begins with a pulse diagnosis, which in Chinese medicine has been one of the most important diagnostic tools for over 2,000 years. This is followed by a conversation to learn more about traditional Chinese medicine, from herbal remedies to dietary therapy, and recommendations to improve overall wellness.

Customs

In keeping with local customs, Six Senses Maxwell is home to a traditional ice-cream tricycle. Guests can enjoy complimentary Singaporean ice-cream sandwiches from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm each day. Made of ice cream wrapped up in a slice of rainbow-colored bread, flavors range from chocolate or cucumber to more unique twists such as sweet corn and red bean. In line with our sustainability practices, all are made using organic and sustainably sourced ingredients, and the ice-cream tricycle uses a solar-powered generator for the refrigerator.

Sustainability

Both hotels have received the Urban Redevelopment Authority Architectural Heritage Award recognizing their commitment to authenticity and responsible preservation. They provide the perfect base for Singapore’s main attractions, retail boutiques, exceptional restaurants and acclaimed street food. Singapore’s Changi International Airport (SIN) is just 20 minutes by car.
