Luxury and elegance are no surprises when staying at The Ritz. What makes Singapore’s Ritz Carlton Millenia distinctively inviting are touches like the “Ice Cream Pass” for children to redeem a free daily scoop by the pool; the location on nearly three-hectares of beautifully landscaped waterfront property; or the spectacular views (be sure to book a room overlooking Marina Bay) to be enjoyed through your unique octagonal windows while soaking in the tub. The building and rooms were designed by Kevin Roche, a Pritzker-Prize winning architect whose list of more than 200 projects includes renovations to the American Museum of Natural History and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. And then there’s the expansive contemporary art collection, with more than 4200 pieces including works by Andy Warhol and Dale Chihuly. Ask the concierge for an iPod to complete your self-guided tour. There’s also a 24-hour fitness centre, spa, a variety of meeting spaces (must be booked in advance) and the spacious rooms and suites, with various configurations, have options to suit families and business travellers alike.
The Ritz Carlton Millenia sits in a prime location between the downtown core and Marina Bay. Popular attractions like the Singapore Flyer, the Marina Bay Sands precinct and Gardens by the Bay are within easy walking distance.
