Hotel transformed into a vibrant new design destinationFollowing a comprehensive multi-million dollar renovation project embarked upon in summer 2013, award-winning design agencies have transformed several spaces within Fairmont Singapore to breathe new life into this landmark hotel and enhance the guests’ overall experience.
The renovation project included a vibrant new lobby, a modern cocktail bar and all guestrooms in the North Tower of the hotel. Largely influenced by the Straits Chinese culture, known as Peranakan, the newly renovated spaces collectively represent a modern interpretation whilst remaining distinctly authentic.
The new hotel lobby now features an eclectic collection of art pieces that together illustrate the mix of cultures present in this cosmopolitan city. Taking the limelight as the focal piece in the lobby is an outstanding chandelier designed by Petra Dickova entitled Playing with Wing which illuminates the entire lobby with its 800 bohemian crystal glass balls, each individually hand-blown to perfection over three months. Guests arriving at the hotel will be able to enjoy these magnificent works of art whilst checking in on the hotel’s new iPad check-in/out system, making the arrival and departure experience even more seamless.
The Fairmont Premier Rooms in the North Tower are specially designed to represent the pinnacle of elegance and comfort, with the newly revamped rooms featuring stylish accents of Singapore’s heritage alongside modern amenities and innovative features. New design elements include a bespoke carpet that resembles the traditional hand-painted clay tile flooring of Peranakan homes as well as exquisite curtains that take inspiration from the delicate lace embroidery commonly found on the Peranakan ‘kebaya’ (a traditional dress work by the Peranakan ‘Nyonya’ women.
In celebration of the completion of this momentous renovation, guests can now book an exclusive introductory room offer in a new Fairmont Premier Room from S$318 per night including breakfast. Available for stays until 30 December 2014.
