Four Seasons Hotel Singapore completed its room renewal program with the unveiling of the Suite Collection. Together with the rest of the guestrooms and suites, the renovation started in early July 2018, led by the interior designers Hirsch Bedner Associates, which also led the renovations of the Jiang-Nan Chun restaurant in 2016 and the opening of the hotel in 1994.
The property has four distinctive residences: the Royal Suite, Governor Suite, Ambassador Suite and the Presidential Suite.
On the 18th floor, the Royal Suite (measuring (1,615 square feet) was inspired by nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has a newly added open pantry and sofa seating. Using neutrals, black and green, and dressed in cane and linen textures, with local palm, fruit and animal motifs in artworks and accessories, the new décor reflects a relaxed ambiance.
The Governor Suite (measuring 1,798 square feet) has book-lined walls. Located on the top guestroom floor of Four Seasons Hotel Singapore, the Governor Suite has pear wood millwork offset with contemporary furnishings in grey, dark wood detailing and amber tones.
The Ambassador Suite (measuring 1,798 square feet) uses the intricate designs of the kamchen pottery, also featured in-suite. Accented with existing Straits Chinese elements through modern furniture in a turquoise, grey and rose scheme, the suite is located on the 19th floor.
The Presidential Suite (measuring 2,131 square feet) is the largest at the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore. It uses a black-and-white color scheme, symbolic of old news footage and photos, with accents of gold, symbolic of prosperity. Inspired by the colonial houses that are still standing on the island, the suite located on the 19th floor has contemporary furniture in a black, white and persimmon scheme that complements the existing pear wood millwork and black marble floor.
The property has a total of 255 guestrooms including these four themed suites. All rooms and suites have floor-to-ceiling windows providing views of the city and surrounding greenery.
Amenities at the property include the Four Seasons Spa, rooftop pool on the 20th floor, four indoor and outdoor tennis courts, as well as a 24-hour fitness center.
For dining, the property has the one Michelin-starred Jiang-Nan Chun, renovated in 2016; One-Ninety Restaurant, which has an open dining concept, complete with a theater kitchen and chef's table; One-Ninety Bar, which has a stylish lounge interior; and the resort-style alfresco Terraza.
For events, Four Seasons Hotel Singapore has over 1,500 square meters (16,146 square feet) of meeting space, all of which underwent a refurbishment in 2016. The ballroom features arched windows, and two penthouse function rooms on the 20th floor have views of the city, along with individual private patios.
