Six Senses Maxwell Celebrates Singapore’s Culture and History

SINGAPORE – November 1, 2018 – Melding Singapore’s rich heritage and European tradition, Six Senses Maxwell debuts on December 1, 2018 as the second landmark urban property in the Six Senses collection of hotels, following the Six Senses Duxton opening in April. Both hotels occupy historical buildings in Chinatown’s Tanjong Pagar district and each radiates its own distinct personality and charm, while reflecting the neighborhood’s past as a trading center and current status as a vibrant downtown cultural enclave.

Housed in a colonial-style 19th century heritage building, the 138-room Six Senses Maxwell will feature a historically significant Indentures Collection. These comprise vintage land transaction documents that offer a fascinating glimpse into the development of Singapore and the Straits Settlements in the 1800s and early 1900s. The collection represents an historical “paper trail” tracing modern Singapore’s evolution from its beginnings as a swampy, untamed trading port established by Stamford Raffles and William Farquhar for the East India Company to its time under the British Crown, and finally its emergence as an independent nation in 1965.

This rich sense of intertwined Asian and European history is tastefully imbued in Six Senses Maxwell’s warm and stylish interior, fashioned by the famed designer Jacques Garcia with alluring touches in burnished timber finishes and lightened up with elegant paintwork.

“Our Six Senses Maxwell property brings alive and celebrates the heritage and traditions of Singapore’s past, while reflecting a warm European influence and personality,” says General Manager Murray Aitken. “Guests here and at Six Senses Duxton not only have the opportunity to utilize facilities at both properties, they will also be able to truly appreciate the cultural and historical backdrop that makes these experiences special and true to the local culture.”

Located on the ground floor and lined with lush tropical foliage is Cook & Tras, a social library restaurant and bar influenced by heritage Straits cuisine. This establishment will feature a specially curated book collection designed by the UK’s Ultimate Library. Known for their dedication to building bespoke book collections for hotels and private residences around the world, they have put together a storied collection of titles that reflect the local neighborhood as well as volumes on subjects such as wellness, meditation, nutrition, herbal medicine, natural history, climate change and sustainability.

Keeping with local customs, Six Senses Maxwell will also be home to a traditional ice cream tricycle where complimentary Singaporean Ice Cream Sandwiches will be served by an “Uncle” (a respectful term of address for an elder male in Singapore) to hotel guests. Made of a slab of ice cream wrapped up in a slice of rainbow-colored bread, these longstanding local favorites come in a variety of flavors, ranging from chocolate, mint and mango, to more unique twists such as sweet corn, durian and red bean, all made using only organic and sustainably sourced ingredients. In line with Six Senses’ sustainability practices, the ice cream tricycle will use a solar-powered generator to keep the ice cream sandwiches refrigerated.
