Six Senses Duxton, the first city hotel from acclaimed hospitality and wellness company Six Senses, is now open at 83 Duxton Road in historic Tanjong Pagar in the Chinatown area of Singapore. Along with sister hotel Six Senses Maxwell opening later this year, Six Senses Duxton seeks to engage with the surrounding neighbourhood and provide a new level of sustainability practised in Singapore.
“Six Senses Duxton aims not only to deliver a five-star luxury hotel experience, but to actively improve the surrounding neighbourhood and natural environment as we do so,” says Six Senses chief executive officer Neil Jacobs. “Singapore has been my home for almost 20 years, specifically the colourful enclave of Tanjong Pagar. Together with our team, I am delighted to bring our unique new urban Six Senses experience to life in Singapore, and for us to enrich and be enriched by the Duxton and Maxwell communities.”
In addition to infusing a touch of local culture and quirkiness into each property, Six Senses is known for its commitment to authenticity, community, and sustainability. Six Senses Duxton was originally a row of traditional shophouses, re-designed and re-utilised to harmoniously blend the shophouse aesthetic with the comfort of a modern hotel. As a conservation project, Six Senses Duxton has received the Urban Redevelopment Authority Architectural Heritage Award.
“We look forward to welcoming you to experience a hotel that is truly different from the inside out. Numerous processes and procedures are in place to ensure that we truly ‘walk the walk’ in terms of adhering to our commitments to sustainability and conservation,” says general manager Murray Aitken. “We are focused on the creation and operation of self-sustaining hotels that are supportive of social equity and leave a legacy for future generations.”
Six Senses Duxton and Six Senses Maxwell are focused on enhancing social and economic benefits to neighbouring communities. Six Senses supports Singapore entrepreneurs by looking to local suppliers before a search for any product or service is expanded regionally. From in-room minibar items to restaurant ingredients to hotel operating supplies, priority has always been to source and partner locally. In this spirit, exclusive partnerships within the community will be announced in the coming months, giving Six Senses guests additional access to unique local experiences and extending the brand’s reach into the surrounding community.
