When asked where the centre of culture is in Singapore, the most common answer is probably the Bugis area. Chinatown, Little India and Kampong Glam are just a stone’s throw away and you’re also minutes away from Singapore’s modern and bustling Central Business District (CBD). It’s hard to find a moment of silence in such a busy area but there is a new hotel that will help you get some much needed rest and treat you to beautiful city views.
Opened just half a year ago, Andaz Singapore is the first Andaz hotel in Southeast Asia and is the perfect accommodation choice for those of us who are seeking a more cultural experience of Singapore. Located within the twin DUO skyscrapers, the 342-room hotel is just one of the developments in the building. It’s 5 minutes away from Bugis MRT station (and directly connected via underpass), making it the prime location for guests to check out Little India, Kampong Glam, Chinatown and also visit the public museums around the Civic District. Not only will you get to learn about and experience the different cultures in Singapore, you’ll be surrounded by classic colonial architecture and modern architecture as well.
Other than its culturally-rich location, the interior of the hotel is also beautifully decorated with acclaimed artworks by local artists, regional artists and international artists. However, those aren’t the only things that will take your breath away. The hotel is located on the higher floors of the DUO towers so you’ll get enjoy picturesque city views from the swimming pool, gym, restaurants and most importantly, the rooms. It’s truly stunning.

After visiting Little India, Kampong Glam, Chinatown and the museums, you will definitely be famished. Thankfully, Andaz Singapore has several exceptional dining options that will satisfy any palette. Alley on 25 is a unique dining concept that is inspired by local shophouses and street dining culture. Headed by Chef Raj Kumar, Alley on 25 allows guests to choose from 7 alleyway “shophouses” that serve a range of tantalising dishes: a platter of barbecued snacks from Smoke & Pepper or a comforting warm bowl of noodles from Auntie’s Wok & Steam. You can also treat yourself to some Italian soft serve, from Icehaus, for dessert.

Meat lovers and seafood addicts should make a beeline for 665˚F, a steakhouse dedicated to prime cuts of meat and sustainable seafood. The restaurant is located at the top of Andaz Singapore so you’ll definitely get a stunning view to go with your dinner. The best part? All of the meats are halal-certified in their countries of origin so everyone will be able to enjoy an exquisite dining experience at 665˚F.

To wind down after a long day, we highly recommend making a final stop at Mr. Stork, Andaz Singapore’s rooftop bar. Enjoy the cool night breeze with your date or mates, while sipping on some cocktail or a glass of whiskey. Just like storks which often build their nests atop trees and buildings, you can lounge your own nest, or a teepee hut to be more exact, for more a private setting.
