Tourists and travellers visiting Singapore often have a fascination with Little India. It’s not hard to see why. The neighbourhood is known for its culturally diverse cuisine despite its name, and shows off a homegrown version of Singapore’s heritage. While it may not have the glitz and glamour of our central business and shopping districts, it has plenty of charm and an exhilarating energy about it. For anyone looking to spend time in this heritage district, One Farrer Hotel provides accommodation at different tiers.
The five-star urban luxe hotel is the first hotel in Singapore to operate somewhat as a trinity, with three distinct hotels forming One Farrer – the Urban Hotel that is designed with a contemporary hotel feel, the Loft Apartments for extended stays and the Skyline Hotel & Sky Villas portion, a place for the well-heeled looking for a luxurious experience in the area.
One Farrer Hotel throws out the notion that villas need to be on the ground. Six Sky Villas sit at the top floors, above 84 Skyline Rooms, Skyline Suites and Sky Studios. Your experience starts on the 18th floor where the Skyline lobby is, with floor to ceiling windows that give you an incredible view of the city.
The six villas, five named after tropical flowers and the last aptly named the Presidential villa on account of its size and splendour, were all designed as residential penthouses instead of hotel suites. Located on level 20 and ranging from 95 to 300 square metres in size, each is completely unique to the others, providing a different experience should you return for another stay. And luxury is truly what you get at the Sky Villas, with open-air courtyards, jacuzzis, lava rock grills and private wine cellars.
A Euro-Asian theme ties it all together with furnishings designed with European flair while the in-villa art, hand knotted carpets and accessories are highlights of The Farrer Park Company’s campus wide collection of Greater Asian art. Frette 600 thread count Egyptian Cotton bed linen and Etro-designed custom bathrobes push the boundaries for hospitality standards. For the globetrotter looking to stop and smell the roses, luxury does not get much better.
