Hotel Review: Four Seasons Singapore

Singapore is one of the most unique and fascinating cities in the entire world. If you are ever traveling through South East Asia and find yourself anywhere close to the city, you really cannot miss a visit. Chances are you will be in nearby Thailand or Malaysia, but very close geographically although they could not be more different culturally and socially. Singapore is a gigantic city with gorgeous skyscrapers, speeding trains and shining, magnificent hotels.

“Walking through the lobby and main areas it is easy to forget you are in a hotel at all and not a beautiful mideival castle, a strange feeling knowing you are in the middle of a bustling city…”

We sadly only had 1 night on this trip but spent it wisely at the Four Seasons Singapore, just about as good as you can get in hotel accommodation and we were not disappointed. Four Seasons has long been world renowned as one of the best luxury chains in the world but they don’t settle for just having the reputation of the best, the continue to boldly march into the future, a trend we were frankly surprised to see from such an old school luxury hotel chain, a fact that made us very happy.

Free wifi is available to every guest, and extra fast wifi available for an extra charge. We are still surprised at all the luxury hotels which charge for internet, and while the Four Seasons Singapore only offers each rooms complimentary access for two devices, we applaud them for offering a free option to all their guests, a service others in their class still charge for.

Hotel Review: Four Seasons SingaporeWalking through the lobby and main areas, it is easy to forget you are in a hotel at all and not a beautiful mideival castle, a strange feeling knowing you are in the middle of a bustling city, a feat they have somehow pulled off with rare Asian artifacts adorning the walls and an impressive Titanic-esque staircase, leading to the second floor which houses and unbelievably impressive and somewhat hidden feeling Chinese restaurant as well as their conference rooms, and one floor further up an equally impressive indoor lounge and gym and access to one of their two pools.

Back to the ground floor, both their signature restaurant, One-Ninety: Wood Fired Steaks and Seafood and their world famous bar, One-Ninety Bar by Javier de las Muelas are tucked into the layout while remaining inviting yet private at the same time. The restaurant serves up some absolutely delicious steaks and burgers, which we both devoured but the real surprise came at the restaurants breakfast, easily the most complete and stunning spread we have ever seen. With entire sections for different cuisines, different hot and cold areas there was simply nothing you could want for, something rare in a hotel breakfast.

The One Ninety bar is really more than a bar, its an experience. Carefully and thoughtfully crafted Javier de las Muelas has designed the experience of the bar all around the Dry Martini and the experience of having one made expertly in front of you, it really is a unique and stunning bar experience.

Located close to the airport and walking distance to the Orchid metro stop, the location of Four Seasons Singapore is surprisingly secluded and convenient in the midst of one of Asia’s most impressive cities, and all while maintaining the quality, luxury and expectations you would expect from a Four Seasons hotel, while providing the modern touches you can’t live you life without these days.
