Set in a quiet garden enclave in the heart of the city and only a short walk away from the tree-lined Orchard Road shops, this property really does scream location, location, location and despite being in the epicentre of the city the setting is intimate, private and doesn't feel at all crowded. Once you step off the busy street and head into the air conditioned hotel, a peaceful haven waits.
In keeping with the brand the interior is elegant with over 1,500 Asian art pieces showcased throughout the hotel.
With 255 guest rooms and suites, each is spacious and comfortable, the decor in keeping with the Four seasons brand is contemporary and elegant with soft fabrics, earthy tones and a host of amenities for the well seasoned traveller, WIFI comes as standard as does the air conditioning to help you cope with the humidity.
Taking centre stage at the top of the building you'll find the club offering a roof top outdoor swimming pool and whirlpool. The Club also offers a steam room, sauna and comprehensive gym and aerobics studio with personal instruction by appointment. It doesn't stop there either, with four tennis courts, two of which are indoors you will struggle not to find something to keep you active.
The hotel offers two restaurants, the more relaxed bistro grill One-Ninety and Jiang-Nan Chun offering fine Cantonese cuisine in beautiful surroundings. One-Ninety allows guests to choose from a buffet or a la carte menu and for anyone going I'd recommend the Wagyu burger, a house mouth-watering favourite, but one of my favourite spots was the alfresco bar, set in an outdoor garden it makes the perfect spot to watch the world go by or catch up with friends.
The Four Seasons is best known for its outstanding service and the Singapore outpost doesn’t disappoint. The staff are helpful and efficient without being overbearing, my room was immaculate without ever seeing a member of staff and guest services really had their finger on the pulse recommending some great places to visit outside of the hotel.
The Four Seasons isn't a trendy boutique hotel and whilst it is loved by business travellers, to sell as that would sell it short. Understated elegance, impeccable service and a host of facilities make this one for serious consideration if you are visiting Singapore.
