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. Opened only a year ago, after years of meticulous restoration by acclaimed architects and updated with refreshing modern touches by famed interior designers, its glories will be revived as it unveils as a luxury haven – The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore. It is an oasis of tranquility in the heart of the city underscored by its signature bespoke hospitality,
“We are excited to house the first Kempinski brand in Singapore at this iconic landmark,” says Christian Gurtner, Managing Director of The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore. “Whether through thoughtful design, abundance of gourmet food and beverage options or impeccable personal service, guests can look forward to an exquisite, five-star experience – a sense of place where rich heritage meets the finest traditions of European luxury.”
A Premier Address
The luxurious hotel 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.
Contemporary Design with Victorian and Art Deco influences
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. Precise lines and geometric shapes are a recurring design theme, a nod to the art deco style of the early 20th century – when Capitol Building was first built.
High corniced ceilings, dramatic archways and grandwindows 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 Kempinski Experience
Upon entering the elegant lobby, a luxurious residential living is beheld. Be greeted by the Lady in Red – a signature Kempinski brand ambassador, who embodies a dedication to impeccable personal service and superb hospitality, representing the epitome of European timeless elegance.
The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore is located at 15 Stamford Rd, Singapore 178906. For reservations, please contact +65 6368 8888 or email email@example.com
