Welcoming with warm smiles are receptionists fashioning their bespoke uniform by Shan Shan Lim, designing comfort into chic for everyday wear. Over the dining area and Art Deco bar are tiffany light fittings in the shape of the Chinese tang long, giving a sleek look harmonising with the high ceilings. Arrive at the floor desired via the gold, reflective, Art Deco elevator. The hotel guide in each room are locally designed and printed by Alphabet Press, and the refillable water bottles served on beautiful ceramic by Bendang Studio. The room of maroon and dark green colours, accompanied with dim romantic lighting, provides a cosy atmosphere to the stay.
