We love the New Majestic Hotel‘s idiosyncratic details: individually designed rooms by some of Singapore’s biggest creative names and modern artwork everywhere you turn. Pack your sleekest designer duds and a Zen-inspiring mindfulness colouring book for a stay at this too-cool-for-art-school Chinatown-central hotel.
WHY THIS WEEK? New Majestic Hotel’s delightfully unconventional communal spaces, paint-splattered rooms by Ministry of Design creatives, courtyard-set pool and Cantonese fusion cuisine make it just the place for fashionable downtime. Stylish Smiths who book two nights or more from now through June 2016, will get 20 per cent off their stay, daily breakfast, and a Singapore Sling on arrival.
OUR FAVOURITE BITS We love feeling like we’re having a surreptitious overnight stay in a modern art museum, soaking in side-by-side claw-footed bath tubs and admiring the sleek design. The Attic Suites, with their six-metre ceilings, sprawling loft beds and striking contemporary murals, might be our favourites. The three porthole windows at the bottom of the New Majestic Hotel’s glimmering lap pool allow swimmers to peer down into the restaurant, where the glass-panelled kitchen is a performance piece in itself.
WHAT YOU SAY… ‘The hotel’s quirky in a good way, with lovely individual rooms. The staff were really enthusiastic and could not be more helpful. It’s perfectly placed to explore Chinatown area; lots of restaurants, bars, markets close by. Will definitely stay at the New Majestic Hotel again.’ – Barry, Blacksmith, stayed 16 September 2015.
MR & MRS SMITH SAY… ‘Why do the things that are so naughty taste so good? Mr Smith opts for crispy pork. He then suggests that we are served the Peking duck at the table. The staff is more than happy to do just that, and neatly parcel the pancakes in front of us. We leave floating on a fine-dining cloud.’ Read travel addict Rachel Everett’s New Majestic Hotel review.
