What inspired the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore's renovated rooms

The Four Seasons Hotel Singapore will complete the renovation of its rooms in early July. Interior design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates, which led the renovations of Jiang-Nan Chun restaurant in 2016 and the opening of the hotel in 1994, was again involved in the renovation project.

Influenced by the nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the interiors of the newly renovated rooms have a natural color palette including blue tones and lime green accents, inspired by the Singapore Botanic Garden’s Swan Lake. Each room will have a mural wall composition of traditional Peranakan tiles, reminiscent of Singapore’s heritage. Peranakan culture represents the union between two major ethnicities of the Straits Peninsula.

All rooms and suites will have floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the city and surrounding greenery, and allowing natural light to enter. The bathrooms will have marble furnishings.

For guests who require residential-style room, Four Seasons Executive Suites will have separate living and sleeping areas and a spa-like bathroom. The suites will have white colonial-style doors and windows with plantation shutters reminiscent of Singapore’s colonial history, allowing for the natural light to brighten the room. The hotel’s one-bedroom suites will have high ceilings, bay windows and their own private living space.

Amenities at the property include the Four Seasons Spa, and dining options Jiang-Nan Chun, One-Ninety Restaurant and One-Ninety Bar. There is a rooftop pool on the 20th floor, offering views of the skyline; four indoor and outdoor tennis courts; 24-hour fitness center.

For events, the property has over 1,500 square meters (16,000 square feet) of meeting space, all refurbished in 2016. The ballroom has arched windows and two penthouse function rooms on the 20th floor offer views of the city, along with individual private patios.

In addition to the room renovation debuting this early July, the hotel plans to renovate four themed suites, including the Presidential Suite, scheduled for completion this September.
