Singapore – The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia

Singapore - The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia

In the heart of Singapore’s Marina Bay, with unobstructed views of both the Singapore skyline and the busy waterfront, this 32-floor, 608-room property was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Kevin Roche. Its newly renovated guest rooms are the largest of any hotel in the city-state. Facilities include a spa, a fitness centre with hot and cold plunge pools, and iPad tours of the hotel’s contemporary art collection, which includes pieces by Andy Warhol and Frank Stella. Dining options include Cantonese cuisine at Summer Pavilion and traditional Japanese dishes at Shiraishi.

X-factor ‘This may not be the most glamorous of Singapore’s elite hotels but the rooms are spacious, service is peerless, and the view over Marina Bay from the bathtub is worth the room rate alone,’ says Gold List contributor Gary Bowerman.
