Featuring Singapore’s first saltwater relaxation pool, the 157-room luxury property will be situated within the restored Capitol Building and Stamford House.
Hollywood blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians recently made its Singapore premiere at the Capitol Theatre, which is a part of the city-state’s historic Capitol Building, comprising shopping destination Capitol Piazza and the Eden Residences Capitol.
Come October this year, it will also welcome new luxury lifestyle destination The Capitol Kempinski Hotel. Situated within the restored Capitol Building and Stamford House, the hotel has been designed by Pritzker prize-winning architect Richard Meier who rejuvenated the two buildings to create a bridge between past and present.
The hotel was originally scheduled to open in 2015 as The Patina, Capitol Singapore, but has since been taken over by Europe’s luxury hotel group, Kempinski Hotels SA.
Making its debut with 157 guest rooms and suites, the hotel will also house a leading international restaurant helmed by a Michelin-starred chef, a boutique spa, as well as Singapore’s first saltwater relaxation pool.
The most exclusive suite here is the 137-square-metre Heritage Suite, which is located in the storied Stamford House and comes with round-the-clock butler service. Designed to host VIP guests, the suite features artefacts and artworks that have been carefully selected and combined to match the unique colonial style of Stamford House, along with contemporary design and exclusive materials and drapery.
The room also comes with high ceilings, a separate living room and bedroom, as well as a spacious bathroom in which in-room massages can be had. Other amenities include a rainfall shower, separate bath, and steam room.
Beyond the accommodation, the Kempinski experience extends to the Galleria, an air-conditioned sheltered promenade, which is part of Capitol Piazza. Guests can expect to satiate their appetites at five F&B options, including a patisserie and a bar.
In addition, hotel guests will be able to enjoy direct access to Capitol Theatre and its plethora of arts and cultural performances and events.
The hotel’s full range of services will be made available over several phases towards the end of 2018, starting with its grand opening in October.
