One for all

Savour Amara Sin­ga­pore of­fers some­thing for ev­ery type of trav­eller to the Lion City.

Robb Report (Malaysia) - - Savour - By Sam Yen

What be­gan as an amor­phous ball of dough quickly be­comes sliv­ers of wheat noo­dles un­der the blind­ing flurry of Jack Huang’s blade. The chef from In­ner Mon­go­lia is cre­at­ing dao xiao mian - wil­low-shaped noo­dles that are thin at the edges, thick in the cen­tre - s erved i n c hicken b roth a nd driz­zled with chilli oil, one of the unique items at Amara Sin­ga­pore’s Silk Road restau­rant.

Equidis­tant from the bustling Cen­tral Busi­ness Dis­trict and the en­er­getic Chi­na­town, Amara Sin­ga­pore in thriv­ing Tan­jong Pa­gar is a neat sum­mary of what makes the is­land na­tion great: com­merce, cui­sine and cul­ture. Ex­pan­sive win­dows in the rooms of­fers glimpses of the dis­tinc­tive Ma­rina Bay Sands, the sprawl­ing tem­ples along South Bridge Road and the cranes of the Port of Sin­ga­pore; so whether it is trade or tourism, the ho­tel is a per­fect base for ei­ther. Or just a per­fect van­tage point to ad­mire the view, while ly­ing on very soft beds.

The swim­ming pool, how­ever, might trick you into think­ing of an ac­tual jun­gle, not a con­crete one. The dark tim­ber, slate tiles and lush green­ery seem more Sa­mui than Sin­ga­pore. Else­where, a litany of ameni­ties – gym, spa, wed­ding pav­il­ion, meet­ing rooms, ex­pan­sive con­fer­ence fa­cil­i­ties and the 100AM mall next door – ful­fils the needs of any type of trav­eller. Sim­i­larly, the ho­tel’s culi­nary of­fer­ings cater to ev­ery taste bud; Silk Road for au­then­tic Chi­nese, Cafe Ori­en­tal for lo­cal de­lights, Tea Room for sweet bites with TWG premium teas, Bar-roque Grill for French ro­tis­serie, Al­pha­bet for lounge drinks and El­e­ment for an all-en­com­pass­ing din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Be­ing com­pre­hen­sive as a ho­tel can be a chal­lenge, but Amara Sin­ga­pore suc­ceeds in achiev­ing that, and more. sin­ga­pore.ama­ra­ho­tels.com ≠

The ho­tel is a per­fect base for trade or tourism.

This and fac­ing pages: this 392-room busi­ness ho­tel has com­pre­hen­sive event fa­cil­i­ties as well as a col­lec­tion of award-win­ning restau­rants.
