Located in Singapore’s downtown Civic and Cultural District is the architectural gem once discretely known as Capitol Building and Stamford House, about which many locals fondly reminisce. After years of meticulous restoration by acclaimed architects and updated with refreshing modern touches by famed interior designers, it is now home to The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore, which opens this month.
A PREMIER ADDRESS
The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore is nestled at the centre of the continually revitalised luxury heritage lifestyle destination, Capitol Singapore – encompassing an exclusive 39-unit residential tower, a premium retail mall, and the legendary Capitol Theatre. It is a perfect starting point to explore the city, where access is effortless via sheltered connectivity from City Hall MRT station, with entertainment and lifestyle options, as well as dynamic landmarks and art venues, also within close proximity.
Beautifully restored, The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore features a design that stays true to the buildings’ colonial art deco and Victorian aesthetics while stylishly capturing contemporary beauty and elegance to be a true masterpiece. Each design element infuses homely warmth into the space while giving the feeling of understated grandeur, underscoring its stately past. High corniced ceilings, dramatic archways and grand windows offer sweeping views of the city and an abundance of natural light that shifts with the day, lending an almost ethereal glow to the space. Lamps and cornices in each room have a patterned design – customised to represent the scales of Singapore’s mascot, the Merlion, in a subtle tribute to the nation.
The 157 guestrooms and suites are each marked by intricate detailing and light-filled high- ceiling interiors. Spanning almost 50 unique room configurations, forgoing the typical unit- oriented hotel typology, each area is thoughtfully-designed, working cohesively within these conservation structures.
In all eight room categories, guests can expect spacious living spaces including a luxurious bathroom with free-standing, deep-soaking bath, Sonos audio system, a generous work desk area, complimentary non-alcoholic beverages from the minibar, complimentary wi-fi, and much more. For guests staying in suites, complimentary daily gourmet breakfast and a promise of a 24-hour
WELLNESS AND RELAXATION

In-room spa treatments are also available for a truly indulgent experience. Fitness enthusiasts can maintain a workout regime at the Gym, kitted out with state-of-the- art TechnoGym equipment, or simply lounge back for a refreshing afternoon break at the outdoor saltwater relaxation pool – a quiet escape ideal for a relaxing dip, or a moment to rejuvenate.
