Originally designed by legendary architect John Portman and invigorated by local creatives and artists, the distinctive design conscientiously embraces Singapore’s garden city environment, drawing art and nature into 12 cascading floors of contemporary guest rooms, meeting spaces, restaurants, and bars. At the heart of Portman’s architectural marvel, the skylit atrium stands as a bold legacy of his work—a striking and iconic hallmark that bathes the entire space in natural light. Contemporary pieces by emerging local and regional artists thread through every nook, welcoming guests on a visual exploration of Singapore’s rich botanical heritage through its thoughtfully curated art collection.

Globally renowned sculptures, like Stephanie Scuris’ Harmony Fountain and Michio Ihara’s stunning Singapore Shower, add a touch of timelessness to the surroundings.
