Recently opened, The South Beach, Singapore is a contemporary inspired hotel designed by Philippe Starck and located in the hub of downtown Singapore, across the legendary Raffles Hotel and minutes away from Marina Bay area. The H.I.P. (Highly Individualised People and Places) hotel creates Infinite Experiences by integrating lifestyle, design and technology.

I am a big fan of Starck hotels, having stayed until now at Palazzina G (in Venice) or at SLS Las Vegas, both hotels designed and reimagined by the famous interior designer. I was surprised to discover his latest hotel in Singapore and I really enjoyed the tour offered at The South Beach Hotel a couple of weeks ago.

Uniquely designed for guests to aspire and be inspired; where work and play are seamlessly blended together; where intelligent and creative individuals gather to build connections or indulge in solitude, this hotel is creating Infinite Experiences.

The philosophy of the hotel is to create a H.I.P. environment — mean a place for Highly Individualised People and Places — and this it does with its 43 Imaginative Social Spaces that range from individual to group settings where you’re meant to be able to enjoy (or to work in) in peace.

The first thing you will see at The South Beach is a Lee Lee Nam video art wall. Installed front and centre (and mere steps) of the entrance, the South Korean artist’s six-metre-tall and seven-metre-wide digital canvas loomed extra large.

For example the lobby, called the Global Village, features a long wooden table is somewhere you can park yourself all day (if you desire) and let the attentive staff come to you to do the check-in.

Court Martial Bar
By order of The South Beach, you are being called to the bar. Court Martial Bar, that is. One army of mixologists will ensure that you shall serve a full sentence of bespoke cocktails and aged whiskeys. Only then can you be honourably discharged.

Make LAUGH, not war. Share a chuckle over coffee during the day, and crack up over cocktails in this gastrobar at sundown. Check your cares at the door, let your hair down and by all means, please be silly. LAUGH accept all major credit cards, but no complaints.

At PREFIX, located in the heart of the Global Village, you can have a coffee in a relaxed atmosphere.

Sky Garden and Pool

A highlight at the hotel is most definitely the sky garden and infinity pool on the 18th floor that gives a 360-view of the Singapore CBD. Guests can also enjoy drinks at the pool bar, Flow18 on the 18th floor. From here you can enjoy one of the most amazing views over the famous Singapore Skyline.
