The St. Regis Hotel Singapore
Where a skyscraper is an art piece
Launching 20 stories skyward above Tanglin Road just North of Singapore’s bustling Orchard Road shopping center, The St. Regis Singapore looms as a gleaming modernistic skyscraper.
After you have become better oriented to your surroundings inside, you realize you’ve stepped into an oasis of opulent Art Deco-style elegance imbued with unique Asian styling.
The two hundred ninety-nine Art Deco-influenced guest rooms and suites are lavish but without going to excess.
The bathrooms are equal to the beauty of the apartment, with stand-alone wood tubs, in-mirror televisions, and showers with both overhead and side jets. Really, they’re remarkable.
As is always at St. Regis’ properties, you’ll find a selection of useful amenities including 24-hour complimentary coffee and tea service, free pressing of up to three items of clothing, daily wine tasting at the hotel’s bar, Decanter, and of course the ever appreciated signature butler service to assist you with such as packing and unpacking services to handling shoe shining. They can handle it all. After all this is Singapore!
The hotel’s Remède Spa is just excellent. It is the only location of famed pedicurist Bastien Gonzalez’s nail studio in Asia.
The lovely marble steam room and outdoor reflexology pool are great aqua amenities additional to the hotel’s luxurious outdoor tropical spa pool.
Culinary options include the Francophilic Brasserie Les Saveurs, the Italian LaBrezza, and the Cantonese Yan Ting. If you enjoy a good drink with new acquaintances visit the Bloody Mary at the hotel’s club styled Astor Bar.
The St. Regis Singapore is ideally located near the heart of the island’s fabulous Orchard Street area and just a short walk from modern megamalls like Somerset@313, Paragon Shopping Centre and ION Orchard.
The St. Regis is justifiably famous for its butler service. They’ll handle everything from ordering your coffee in the morning to arranging restaurant reservations, even shoe shining.
For a stylish airport transfer, opt for the Singapore hotel’s exclusive Bentley chauffeur service, complete with complimentary Wi-Fi.
Practice your swing at The St. Regis Singapore’s indoor tennis court. Court time is available to hotel guests, for a fee.
The Lobby is grand and boasts an impressive art collection of over 70 pieces, including sculptures, paintings and prints by internationally renowned artists including Anthony Poon, Georgette Chen, Fernando Botero, Marc Chagall and even lithographs from Pablo Picasso!
Cecilia Kwek, the wife of hotel owner Kwek Leng Beng, was unremitting in her search for art during the hotel’s construction. Over six years, she acquired most of the art that you can now find in the hotel and which is one of the most interesting private art collections in Asia.The hotel offers a 45-minute art tour to showcase all the art located in the hotel for in-house guests at 6 pm. The tour is limited to a maximum of 8 persons. If you appreciate fine art, be sure to sign up.

THE ST. REGIS SINGAPORE, 29 Tanglin Road, Singapore, 247911
NEARBY AIRPORT is 20-35 minutes ride.

Part II: The more you know the more wisely you’ll spend or invest, so take the time to discover more about St. Regis and its location starting here.
Getting to the St. Regis Singapore
The St. Regis is located at the end of Orchard Road, in a busy and vibrant shopping and business district. It’s a 30-40 minute taxi ride from the airport.
It’s very easy to get a taxi at the airport, or you can use Grab, the Asian equivalent of Uber. A Grab car costs 20-30 Singapore dollars.
The hotel’s location is conveniently central to nearly everything you’ll want to see or visit. It is about 10 minutes walk from the Orchard Road shopping area and also walking distance from the botanical garden.
The St. Regis recently made the news because North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un stayed there during his summit with American President Donald J. Trump.
Check-in at St. Regis Singapore
Check-in at the hotel was very smooth. A porter takes your luggage from the taxi and delivers it to your room.
The lobby of the St Regis Singapore is grand and relaxing, with wide paintings and floral arrangements.
I was escorted to the check-in desk, where the receptionist greeted me by name and took my passport and credit card.
Within 5 minutes I was in my room, and my luggage was already waiting for me.
When you check-in, pay attention to the mid-19th-century silk mural behind the check-in desk. It was acquired by the owner in 2002. He has designed the entire lobby around this mural’s color scheme. It’s a beautiful piece that sets the mood for the hotel.
Discussion about the Room at the St. Regis Singapore
There are 299 rooms at the St. Regis Singapore hotel.
I stayed in a Grand Deluxe Larger Guest room on the 18th floor. It’s a comfortable room that manages to blend old-world style (including 18th century furniture with mahogany wood) with modern technology.
There is a control center next to the bed for all the lights, automatic curtains, a Bose sound system, high-speed wifi, and other high tech features.
I arrived in time to see a buffet more beautiful than any I had seen before.
The room is very well insulated for sound, and it is an oasis of quiet. The automatic blinds allow you to darken the room completely at the touch of a button. I slept well in the extremely comfortable bed.
The bathroom has a comfortable bathtub with a TV. Great for lazy evenings watching a movie! There is also a separate shower. I loved the toiletries from Laboratoire Remède, especially the eucalyptus-scented shower gel. Those are also offered in other St Regis Hotels.
It is the St. Regis tradition to provide every guest, even in the smallest rooms, with a butler. The butler can run errands for you, pack or unpack your suitcase, iron your clothes, or bring you tea and coffee. No task is too small. This is Singapore after all, and probably anything you might want they can recommend or help arrange.
The Food at St. Regis Singapore
Food is a highlight of any trip to Singapore, Asia’s Gastronomic Center, and the St. Regis is at the head of competition, without being strange.
I tried two of their restaurants, the Brasserie des Saveurs for Sunday brunch, and Yan Ting.
Brasserie des Saveurs
The St. Regis Sunday brunch is a grand affair. An elegant dining room with a live band playing jazz and blues makes it feel very festive. The music was pleasant, and a few guests took the opportunity to dance.
The brunch is a combination of a luxury buffet and an a la carte menu.
The appetizer buffet will make raise the mood of Europeans craving cheese and cold cuts. It also has a great seafood selection that includes lobster, oyster, crabs, sushi and sashimi, and the usual salad and carvery. It wouldn’t be Asian without fish. Some restaurants really do not know what to do with fish. Singapore chefs really do!
The food quality is what makes this brunch stand out. I have enjoyed many brunches in Asia, and this is some of the best food I’ve ever had. The service is friendly and efficient. Our waiter was enthusiastic and brought too much food to our table. We had to tell him to stop.
The desert also is buffet style. The patissier is great! From macarons to chocolate tart and baba au rhum, there was too much to chose from, and I wish I could have eaten more. This is not conducive to my weight loss program. Ahemm!
Brunch starts at noon. It is wise to arrive early. We arrived at 1:30 and felt a bit rushed towards the end as they clear the buffets at 3 pm sharp. You travel a long way for this, so don’t be late.
You can choose the food-only package, or a package including free-flowing wine, champagne, and other alcoholic drinks.
Breakfast is also served at la Brasserie des Saveurs. It is of course excellent, albeit a bit less grand than the brunch. It has live cooking stations with many Asian and Indian options. Eggs and a few other dishes can be ordered from a small menu placed on the table.
Yan Ting restaurant at St. Regis Singapore
Yan Ting is a Cantonese fine dining restaurant, and fine dining here is so good, if The Emperor were still alive he would move to Singapore just to dine here.
I went to Yan Ting for lunch, and I should not have been surprised to find this luxury restaurant very busy for a mid-week lunchtime.
The chef was busy setting the standards of excellence that others wonder how to achieve!
Most guests were Chinese. This is a good indicator. When you visit an international restaurant and see that most guests are from the restaurant’s country of origin, you know it has to be good. Chef Wun is at the top of his career and we’re fortunate to have him in Singapore!
If you’re in a hurry, this is the restaurant for you. The service was fast. One can experience a fabulous six-course menu in a little over 1 hour, surrounded by some of the most impressive interior decor! How do they produce so much excellent food so quickly?
Yan Ting made this American grateful to at last know true Cantonese cooking . The food is magnificent and extraordinarily diverse. I did the six-course tasting menu. My favorite courses were the pork noodles with wantons and the oxtail soup.
This restaurant is also great for business lunches or dinner. Management has wisely arranged private rooms for confidential meetings. I’m guessing a lot of business and perhaps some politics is conducted here.
In addition to an extensive a la carte menu for lunch and dinner, Yan Ting has a very popular Weekend Dim Sum Brunch that displays its award-winning signature dishes. To be sure seating will be there for you, call to reserve a table ahead of time!
The St. Regis Singapore Hotel Infrastructure
The St. Regis is an impressive hotel with all the expected high-end facilities. It has an old-style charm, which is surprising, given that it was built in 2007.
The hotel has a small gym. The Fitness Center is open 24 hours and accessible by room key. It is not very big but is sufficiently equipped with cardio machines & strength training equipment.
The pool is pleasant, and rather long for a hotel pool and great for doing laps. It is located at the back of the hotel, so it feels very quiet. There is a Miro Sculpture to look at while getting suntanned.
There is also a sauna and steam room near the pool that guests can use. As in-house guests of The St. Regis Singapore, you’ll get complimentary access to those facilities. I spent about one hour going from the sauna to the steam rooms to the Jacuzzis, and it was very relaxing. This is a great place to unwind after a busy day shopping and sightseeing (or working if you must.)
Remember to bring your bathrobe if you want to use the pool and the sauna. Robes are not provided in the lockers. You cannot avoid passing before the Italian restaurant to go from the sauna/spa to the pool. If you appreciate modesty, you’ll be happy to have your robe.
The majority of the guests in the hotel appeared to be business people from all over the world, and St. Regis offers all the business amenities like printing services, business center, and meeting rooms. There were also quite a few families with children, and everyone seemed to be enjoying their stay.
The St Regis Singapore is an extremely comforting and stylish hotel. It’s a wonderful home away in Singapore, and the ideal oasis after a busy day in town. The hotel offers delicious food options and sets a high standard of gastronomic excellence! Make it your home when visiting Singapore.
