The "New Asia" style of hospitality finds one of its most rarefied expressions in the New Majestic, located in the heart of Singapore's Chinatown. An open-concept period-inspired lobby shows the imaginative possibilities of this marriage of old and new, or "heritage chic", as the hotel calls its particular design savvy, which also takes into account its period furniture dating from the 1920s to the 1960s.
Individually designed rooms, 30 in all, continue the mix of vintage and designer furniture, customized baths, and can include private gardens and six-meter ceilings in attic-style suites. Five rooms have also been personalized by some of Singapore's most influential talents from cinema, theatre and fashion. Every detail from bedding - the New Majestic calls it a 'bedscape' - to bathroom - freestanding copper tubs - has been re-imagined. Some rooms feature floor to ceiling mirrors; others feature aquarium-themed transparent bathrooms.
The Majestic Restaurant serves modern Cantonese cuisine served on individual plates. Chef's specialties at the Majestic restaurant include signature dishes such as the combination platter of crispy wasabi prawns and peking duck served with pan fried spiced foie gras, braised live lobster in a creamy milk and lime sauce, grilled rack of lamb in Chinese honey accompanied with pan fried carrot cake, and the oven baked sea-perch in a fine Champagne sauce. This modern Chinese restaurant also has a 2000 bottle wine cellar boasting some of Singapore's best wines.
Nestled at the edge of Chinatown, the New Majestic is a convenient 20 min drive from the airport, and just a two min walk away from the Outram Park MRT station. The city is located just five minutes drive from the hotel.
