De­signed for Deca­dence

Live in the lap of lux­ury.

Esquire (Singapore) - - Special Feature -

With dis­tinc­tive curves ris­ing high and stat­uesque into the Sin­ga­pore sky­line, it’s hard to miss. As a lux­ury and life­style desti­na­tion, the look of The South Beach speaks of its ex­quis­ite style and true sub­stance, blend­ing su­per-sleek moder­nity with her­itage build­ings. The view, the rooms and the fa­cil­i­ties all come to­gether to of­fer the best in ex­pe­ri­en­tial lux­ury that will leave guests with a story to tell.

In­stead of a lobby, seven check-in desks en­cased in glass in­spired by dif­fer­ent so­ci­eties make up the Global Vil­lage, serv­ing as a meet­ing-hall for the glo­be­trot­ters. A splen­did video wall serves as a liv­ing can­vas for South Korean artist Lee Lee Nam’s col­lage of shapes, di­men­sions, il­lu­sions and en­er­gies, com­ple­ment­ing the in­te­rior dé­cor by Philippe Starck. Even the drab mun­dan­ity of the lifts is stripped away by the unique wall­pa­per which re­veals mys­te­ri­ous sea crea­tures un­der RGB light­ing as the lift de­scends and as­cends.

Each of the 654 rooms boasts a mix of artis­tic in­tu­ition and com­fort­ing seren­ity. Im­merse your­self in the over­sized deep soak bath­tub or frolic un­der the over­head rain shower com­ple­mented with de­signer bath ameni­ties. Work on high­speed wire­less and wired in­ter­net or rest com­fort­ably on the cheek­ily-de­signed float­ing ‘il­lu­sion’ bed with 400 thread­count bed linen. With rooms and suites to suit any in­di­vid­ual or group, you won’t want to leave your room to ex­plore.

That would be a pity, if not for the mar­vel­lous views on of­fer. Whether you’re work­ing out at the gym or loung­ing in the in­fin­ity pools (both lo­cated high up on the 18th floor), or even en­joy­ing a quiet mo­ment on the open-air Sky Gar­dens, the view is of the per­fect, pic­turesque Ma­rina Bay and Es­planade en­vi­rons.
