October 2016: The South Beach hotel is currently under renovations as is changes to become a JW Marriott. As such, the design of the rooms and hotel will be changing. We'll update you one the new look once renovations are complete.
The South Beach
The first Hotel of Design in Southeast Asia with interior design and décor by renowned French designer Philippe Starck, famous for his work on iconic Miami hotels Delano & SLS South Beach. The South Beach brings you all the glitz and glamour you'd expect from a Hotel of Design with fine attention to detail in all aspects including unique art installations by artist from around the world such as Lee Lee Nam and Soh Ee Shaun.
As you walk through the sliding glass doors of the lobby, a 7 meter video art wall transports you to a creative layer where all your senses will be heightened. With 654 rooms and suites, 2 infinity pools (the second opening in the coming months), fabulous restaurants and bars as well as a state of the art gym and games area, you'll never be short of things to see and do in this hotel.
All rooms are bright and open with oversized tubs, luxurious beds and amenities such as smart TVs, free wifi and a mini-bar with complementary snacks and non-alcoholic drinks. You'll find female only rooms and floors with feminine flare perfect for some me time or a ladies only getaway. The suites are all impressive with an extra living space, original furniture and touches of art.
Drinking & Dinning
PREFIX is where you head to relax and unwind with a top shelf scotch on the rocks and a good book. This lobby bar is beautifully decorated in relaxing hues and offers a fine range of whisky and scotch.
For a more upbeat and lively spot perfect for catching up with friends and having a laugh or 2, head to the fittingly named LAUGH restaurant and bar. Here you'll find interactive TV screens set into the table tops, a range of tasty bites and creative cocktails served in a vibrant and eclectic atmosphere. There's even a nightly happy hour!
To cure those hunger pangs at almost any hour of the day head to ADHD (All Day Hotel Dinning), open from 6:30am to late evening. Serving up a fine breakfast buffet and a diverse lunch and dinner menu of exceptionally executed seafood, grilled meats, pasta and burgers.
Another new addition coming soon is the Court Martial Bar which will no doubt be equally as impressive with bespoke cocktails and aged whiskeys.
**Please note only ADHD has officially launched but guest can still take a peak at the other completed hotel bars and restaurants during the hotel's preview period.
Things to Do
With no shortage of hotel amenities, you'll never find yourself stuck for things to do. Flow18 is home to a fully stocked state of the art gym, infinity pool looking over the city, and games area featuring a pool table, ping pong table and foosball table. Soon to open on Padang Terrace is Ebb6 with a second infinity pool and Sky Garden with impeccable skyline views and an awesome vantage point over the Formula 1 circuit.
Location is perfectly situated within walking distance to some of Singapore's most popular attractions. A short 7 minute stroll will take you to Chijmes where you'll find a lively area full of entertainment, cafes, and great open air bars and restaurants. Some of Singapore's best rooftop bars are also only minutes away including Loof & 1 Altitude.
The South Beach is also situated directly across from Suntec shopping centre and convention centre which makes it prime real-estate for business trips and shopaholics.
ADHD (All Day Hotel Dinning)
The South Beach is an absolute must stay for visitors or staycationers. It really brings original art and design to a space that's exciting to be a part of. I love the butler doors that give you absolute privacy in your room and the ladies only rooms are perfect for women travellers to enjoy a girly retreat.
The giant pool floats are also a nice touch making floating in the pool and taking in the spectacular views all that more enjoyable (not to mention they make awesome Instagram pics!)
The service is top notch with friendly warm service and smiles from everyone in the hotel.
