Enclosed with the space of five restored heritage shophouses is Duxton Reserve, a boutique hotel dripping with old-world glamour. Clad in black and gold, designer Anouska Hempel (also an ex-Bond girl) imbued within the four walls of the property an eclectic East-meets-West aesthetic – with ornate French windows, Chinoiserie fixtures, and calligraphy wallpaper.
Black walls and gold accents dominate the hotel’s 49 guest rooms and suites. Lead-in rooms, however, are a minimalist haven dressed in monochromatic hues. For an opulent stay, consider the Skylight Executive Club Suite. The mood-lit interior features a spacious living area, low-slung furniture, and decorative frames. Anchoring the room is a grand four-poster bed fitted with organic mattress, pillows, and buttery cotton linen.
The glamourous property also plays home to Anouska’s Bar, named after the property's designer, and fine-dining Chinese restaurant Yellow Pot.
