Singapore Tatler Best of Singapore


- – Melissa Gail Sing, Special Projects Editor

What defines an exceptiona­l experience? Beyond impressive products and services, one might say it’s about being the first to try a revolution­ary new treatment or get your hands on an exclusive collection even before it hits the shelves, customisat­ion to the nth degree, genuine care and hospitalit­y that makes a standout shopping experience, from the interiors right down to the little touches that make you feel like royalty—think sipping a flute of champagne while perusing fabric swatches for your bespoke suit. Adding to the list, I say that it should also be life-changing. The 13th edition of Singapore Tatler’s Best of Singapore is dedicated to such experience­s—the kind that change and enhance your life.

As a trusted lifestyle guide to the best shops and services in Singapore, Best of Singapore 2018 puts in your hands a curated compendium of 144 merchants across 40 categories who are the finest in their class. From the best spas and most beautiful wedding venues to bespoke travel concierges, patisserie­s and premium TCM centres, every entry has been researched, tried and tested by discerning readers and editors, and found to meet Singapore Tatler’s exacting standards.

Aside from a handy directory of the winners, this guide includes engaging articles containing interviews with the brands as well as testimonia­ls from prominent clients that highlight just what makes these merchants a cut above the rest. It’s no wonder it has been described as the essential lifestyle companion for both locals and tourists seeking the best that our little red dot has to offer. For your convenienc­e, you can access the full list of winners at Singaporet­
