Melding Singapore’s rich heritage and European tradition, Six Senses Maxwell debuts on December 1, 2018 as the second landmark urban property in the Six Senses collection of hotels, following the Six Senses Duxton opening in April. Both hotels occupy historical buildings in Chinatown’s Tanjong Pagar district and each radiates its own distinct personality and charm, while reflecting the neighborhood’s past as a trading center and current status as a vibrant downtown cultural enclave.
Housed in a colonial-style 19th century heritage building, the 138-room Six Senses Maxwell will feature a historically significant Indentures Collection. These comprise vintage land transaction documents that offer a fascinating glimpse into the development of Singapore and the Straits Settlements in the 1800s and early 1900s. The collection represents an historical “paper trail” tracing modern Singapore’s evolution from its beginnings as a swampy, untamed trading port established by Stamford Raffles and William Farquhar for the East India Company to its time under the British Crown, and finally its emergence as an independent nation in 1965.
This rich sense of intertwined Asian and European history is tastefully imbued in Six Senses Maxwell’s warm and stylish interior, fashioned by the famed designer Jacques Garcia with alluring touches in burnished timber finishes and lightened up with elegant paintwork.
“Our Six Senses Maxwell property brings alive and celebrates the heritage and traditions of Singapore’s past, while reflecting a warm European influence and personality,” says General Manager Murray Aitken. “Guests here and at Six Senses Duxton not only have the opportunity to utilize facilities at both properties, they will also be able to truly appreciate the cultural and historical backdrop that makes these experiences special and true to the local culture.”
Keeping with local customs, Six Senses Maxwell will also be home to a traditional ice cream tricycle where complimentary Singaporean Ice Cream Sandwiches will be served by an “Uncle” (a respectful term of address for an elder male in Singapore) to hotel guests. Made of a slab of ice cream wrapped up in a slice of rainbow- colored bread, these longstanding local favorites come in a variety of flavors, ranging from chocolate, mint and mango, to more unique twists such as sweet corn, durian and red bean, all made using only organic and sustainably sourced ingredients. In line with Six Senses’ sustainability practices, the ice cream tricycle will use a solar-powered generator to keep the ice cream sandwiches refrigerated.
Six Senses Maxwell features five spa pods, each with an ensuite bathroom, where you can unwind with a selection of holistic wellness and beauty treatments administered under the guidance of expert therapists and visiting practitioners. There is also a relaxation room and an outdoor rooftop lap pool with a sundeck, bar and lounge area. Next to the lap pool, a modern gym features cardio equipment, weights machines and functional training elements where guests can enjoy fun workouts at all levels.
A Special Opening Offer is available for direct bookings online via sixsenses.com. Guests can enjoy a 15 percent savings on the Best Available Rate and the offer includes daily breakfast for 2 people, a guaranteed room upgrade and a signature cocktail for 2 persons. *Terms & Conditions apply.
Singapore is getting a new Qantas first class lounge!
Qantas has announced a multi-million dollar investment in a new First Lounge and an expansion of the airline’s existing Business Lounge at Singapore Changi Airport.
With development due to start in April 2019, the Singapore First Lounge will offer seating for 240 customers, a luxurious design and premium a la carte dining with Asian-inspired menus.
The existing Business Lounge, which opened in 2013, will also be expanded. Combined, the First and Business Lounges will offer seating for more than 800 customers.
Qantas will work with Chef Neil Perry and Industrial Designer David Caon in collaboration with Akin Atelier, to create a relaxing, high quality environment for passengers to either start their international journey or transit through Singapore. The design will embody a clear focus on sustainability with choices in materials, lighting interior, layouts and amenities all reflecting the highest local and international design techniques.
Set to open towards the end of 2019, the new First Lounge will be designed to suit the specific needs of transit travellers, with shower facilities, a cocktail bar, open kitchen and menu offerings reflecting the best of Singapore’s vibrant dining culture.

Singapore is Qantas’ largest hub outside of Australia, carrying more than 20 per cent of the airline’s wide body fleet. Qantas operates over 50 return services in to and out of Changi Airport each week, making it one of the largest foreign airlines to operate out of the Singapore airport.
