We like One Farrer Hotel & Spa, Singapore for more than just its luxury quotient, which by the way, is a fabulous add on. This swanky urban resort blends into Singapore’s prime heritage district next to Farrer Park MRT station by featuring a collection of 700 abstract art pieces from across Greater Asia spanning its 20 floors—the largest that Singapore has ever seen—open for guests to walk around and view at leisure.

One Farrer is a modern-day hotel with chic decor.

So you know the moment you walk in, One Farrer is not your typical cookie clutter hotel, it’s a lifestyle for art lovers who are sure to find themselves roaming the district below for inspiration. What’s more, you needn’t just resort to a suite or room, you can choose from Loft Apartments, Skyline villas, or studios, a total of 243 outstanding chic contemporary options, some with exclusive outdoor terraces featuring Jacuzzis, exclusive swimming pools on the floor, and priority check in and check out.

Walk in late at night, and you’re sure to find a hot a la carte dinner at Escape, the 24-hour restaurant and lounge; in mood for a light lunch, there’s Local Fresh & Seasonal (LFS), the deli serving comfort food; a wistful cooking class and you’re definitely winding up at Origins of Food, the food studio; and topping it all, there’s a virtual restaurant, The Own Road Diner, that brings world cuisines to your door round the clock. Or you could go to the Sunset Bar and Luau Feast parked beside their Olympic sized swimming pool, to chill with your friends over grilled food and tropical cocktails.

Go for a swim after a hectic day and unwind at the hotel's spa.

The Spa Retreat rounds up the experience at One Farrer Hotel & Spa. With seven private spa suites, Japanese-style (male and female) onsen gardens with Jacuzzi water lounges, cold plunges, and natural mineral pools, there’s no better place to unwind after a hectic day. If this isn’t a lifestyle, what is!
