Is The Singapore Edition Really One Of The Most Stylish Destinations In Singapore Right Now?

TLDR: Yes, it is

Conceptualised by luxury hotelier Ian Schrager, The Singapore Edition is arguably the nation’s most stylish entrant on the scene. Stepping in to the lobby, you’re greeted by a stunning view of the gold foil-papered ceiling contrasted against a lush gardenscape—now, I’ve been to The Singapore Edition a few times prior to my stay and I have to say that the view is equally breathtaking every time I step into the space.

It is home to 204 rooms and suites, the most plush of which no doubt being the 2,100‑square‑foot Edition Penthouse, and for my stay at property, I checked in to the Garden King room, which boasts a generous floor space of 38-43 square metres. With its signature minimalist decor of blond wood floorings, pristine white fabrics and super aesthetic marble bathroom replete with a gorgeous bathtub. It truly highlighted the design-first approach of the brand and its commitment to providing a sophisticated oasis of relaxation in the city.

For dinner, we tucked into the delectable offerings at the seafood‑focused FYSH—the brainchild of Australian restaurateur Josh Niland—that boasts a menu of sustainably caught seafood as well as responsibly sourced meats and produce. Highlights for me included the Java Brown Clams & Shark Bay Scampi, served with a moreish crab broth paired with fish bone noodles, Grilled Abrolhos Island Scallop with the restaurant’s in-house sambal chilli, and the Aquna Murray Cod on Potato Scales.

For dessert, I would definitely suggest going for the Valrhona chocolate macaron with yellowfin tuna eye ice cream, which features the surprising inclusion of yellowfish tuna eye gel as a thickening agent for the ice cream. Trust me: it’s not something that you immediately notice, plus, you’ll get bragging rights as an adventurous eater after finishing it! But if you hate a fishy taste, I would suggest skipping the FYSH Martini, which uses Murray cod fat and, in the martini, it is very apparent.

For late‑night tipples, there is also the plush embrace of the Punch Room. With a slew of signature concoctions inspired by Southeast Asian spices, the cosy navy cocoon, designed by Parisian artist Eric Schmitt, will prove to be the ideal spot for an intimate date‑night drink with your beau. Alternatively, the Lobby Bar is currently the buzziest nighttime spot to see and be seen—during Singapore Art Week, you’d be hard pressed to find a curator, collector or gallerina lounging on their comfy sofas with one of their signature scent-inspired cocktails in hand.

Away from the hubbub of the property’s more raucously social areas, The Spa at The Singapore Edition is the perfect respite. Taking inspiration from local traditions and massage techniques, the curated spa menu offers an array of soothing treatments, as well as vitality thermal pools, an ice fountain, relaxation lounge, sauna, and steam room. Go for The Edition Signature Massage, which blends Swedish massage techniques with the property’s signature Le Labo Black Tea scent-infused oils for the ultimate unwinding experience.
