Art tour and presidential Suite Room
@ The St.Regis Singapore
A hotel like a museum! I stayed one night at the St. Regis Hotel in Singapore. (I will write a review of my stay at a later date.)
The St. Regis Singapore opened in 2008. From the hotel grounds to the spacious lobby with paintings and statues everywhere, it looks like a museum.
They offer art tours of the hotel upon guest request.
Butler, Mr. Elfy, led us on the tour, which lasted about an hour and was wonderfully interesting.
All of the artwork is the personal property of the owners. Smaller pieces are to be replaced periodically. The design and colors of the hotel began with the winning bid of a painting at an auction.
Many of them were designed and arranged based on Feng Shui, and I really enjoyed learning about the unique sensibilities of Asian millionaires.
After the art tour, we were also shown the "Presidential Suite" (about 11700 Singapore Dollar per night!), the highest class room where royal families, politicians, and celebrities from various countries stay. It’s like castle!
Afterwards, we were served a chili buddy flavor, a Singaporean version of the Bloody Mary cocktail , which originated in 1932, at the St. Regis New York.
Each St. Regis in each country offers its own signature Bloody Mary, I was told.
It was a rare opportunity to experience the great history and art of St. Regis, thanks to the hospitality of Mr. Elfy.
