Six Senses Duxton is perfectly situated in Tanjong Pagar, the island city-state’s central district and the eclectic heart of Chinatown where business, socializing, dining and nightlife take center stage. Together with Six Senses Maxwell it forms Six Senses Singapore, the first urban hotels of the brand.
Six Senses Duxton unites a row of heritage shophouses that have been sustainably restored under the gifted hand of acclaimed British designer, Anouska Hempel. The original design of this Urban Redevelopment Authority Architectural Heritage Awarded building features a diverse mix of Chinese, Malay and European elements.
Guests are in for an eccentric, elegant surprise as they enter the hotel which includes large golden fans and strong hues of black, gold and yellow, layered with Oriental screens and calligraphy wallpaper from Anouska’s personal collection.
The Six Senses Duxton, a 49-room boutique hotel opened in April 2018 in Singapore, was the company’s first hotel in that city and its first in an urban environment. Six Senses Maxwell, the second urban hotel in Singapore, opened a few months later, in December 2018.
Operated by the Bangkok-based Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas, which now has two hotels, 15 resorts and 31 spas in 21 countries, the Duxton was created within eight three-story, early 19th-century shop houses in Chinatown. It was refurbished by the British interior designer Anouska Hempel with plush chinoiserie furnishings and décor that gives a big nod to the neighborhood’s distant past. At check-in at the two Singapore hotels, guests are cajoled into a “singing bowl” ritual that involves standing with your eyes closed while a therapist strikes a metal bowl with a wooden wand at your “crown chakra” so the sound vibrations can bring you “harmony and health.”
Six Senses Duxton is located in the heart of Singapore’s old Chinatown and is surrounded by both hawker centers (outdoor food courts) and bars and restaurants beloved by locals, as well as attractions such as the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. It’s a few minutes’ walk from local train stations, and a 10- to 15-minute taxi ride to the financial district and Orchard Road, Singapore’s main shopping area.
In harmony with rich Asian history, yet still presenting her luminary vision, Anouska has given each of the 49 guestrooms and suites a unique individuality so that no two are exactly the same.

Yellow Pot Restaurant
Both the restaurant and adjoining bar are clad in the striking palette of black, gold and yellow that acclaimed British designer Anouska Hempel has accorded to the rest of the hotel. Large golden fans and wallpaper featuring 18th century English indentures from Anouska’s personal collection adorn the dining and drinking spaces, that are cleverly carved out by modern Chinese screens of black lacquered wood and glass— including two semi-private dining enclaves. As its name suggests, the 50-seat restaurant is cheekily embellished with yellow pots of various sizes and configurations.
Yellow Pot focuses on delivering classic and innovative Chinese cuisine that favors healthful and sustainably sourced ingredients, paired with artisanal cocktails crafted using traditional herbs and botanicals.
Yellow Pot Bar
Yellow Pot’s diverse bar menu showcases top-shelf spirits, premium wines, local craft beers, artisanal Chinese teas
and cocktails expertly injected with nostalgic Eastern influences—well suited to city dwellers looking for an urban escape. Inspired by the flower of Kaifeng city, the bar’s signature cocktail Escape to Kaifeng infuses house-made chrysanthemum cordial with Tanqueray London dry gin for a delicately floral aperitif.
Six Senses Duxton provides the perfect base from which to become acquainted with Singapore’s inspiring sites. Retail boutiques and exceptional restaurants, bars and acclaimed street food are just steps from this enchanting oasis.
