The Duxton, Singapore by Anouska Hempel Design

The Duxton, Singapore

The Oriental spirit and imagination of Anouska Hempel has arrived at The Duxton, Singapore, which opened in April 2018. It presents a juxtaposition of her luminary vision for designing ahead of time whilst being grounded in her signature style, which we know and love. The visitor will see strong hues of black, gold and yellow, layered with Oriental screens and calligraphy wallpaper from Anouska Hempel’s own Collection.

Singapore is Asia’s crossroads and interchange to the world. The billowing smells of pak choi broth, with burnt sesame, roll like the breakers onto the palm-lined streets, inviting you in. The visitor to Anouska Hempel’s Orient is in for an eccentric, elegant surprise. Big golden fans radiate as you enter. Ask for a Yellow Peril, a hot whisky, brandy and absinthe, crowned with a chrysanthemum, and dine in the Chinese Restaurant. Each dish is served in large yellow bowls, black tiffins and black Bento boxes, which you open using one metre wok sticks, whilst very cool and disciplined staff dance in attendance. Your table will be groaning with delicacies.

The Duxton is situated in Tajong Pajar, China Town, and has 40 bedrooms and 5 suites - including the Kimono Suite - a vibrant bar and a restaurant with several dining rooms.

There is also the Gandhi Room to meet, relax and entertain, where a huge tiger with the piercing green eyes of a great animal will lead you into another world....
