It seems that as we bid farewell to numerous establishments for not being able to cope with the losses brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, we would also have to say goodbye to a hotel chain that has two properties in Singapore.

Yep, I’m talking about both Six Senses Maxwell and Six Senses Duxton.

Ever since our city went into lockdown mode, both hotels have halted operations.

And now, they will never resume operations ever again.

The official statement by Six Senses said, “Six Senses ceased management of Six Senses Duxton and Six Senses Maxwell from 31 May 2020. This was agreed mutually between Six Senses and the hotels’ owners.”

Six Senses is a luxury hotel and spa group and they opened two hotels in Singapore back in 2018, a few months apart from each other.

When Six Senses Duxton was first opened in April 2018, many people were excited because it was Six Sense’s first-ever city hotel in an urban setting. It was specially designed by British interior designer Anouska Hempel and had 49 guestrooms.

With much success then, they opened Six Senses Maxwell in July, just three months later.

It was designed by French designer and architect Jacques Garcia and could hold more guests as it was equipped with 138 guestrooms.

Both properties had interesting concepts for F&B restaurants, including fine dining Chinese restaurant Yellow Pot, all-day dining restaurant Cook & Tras Social Library, as well as Modern European restaurant Six Senses Brasserie.

I personally had the pleasure of dining a few times at the Cook & Tras Social Library and each time, the experience was exquisite.

Departure from Singapore

Ever since the announcement by Six Senses, both hotels no longer exist on the Six Senses website. Their social media platforms have also been removed.

Of course, it is still unknown as to whether the two properties may open again under different names, and only time will tell.

CNA Luxury did ask Six Senses if they will ever come back to Singapore in the future, and a representative of the group responded, “Six Senses remains focused on strong growth opportunities and plans to expand its portfolio by adding five resorts in Israel, India, Switzerland, Austria and Spain, as well as a city hotel in North America by the end of next year. All will share a deep commitment to sustainable practices, pioneering wellness and delivering crafted experiences.”

Hopefully, as we continue to transit between Phase 2 and Phase 3, businesses would be able to recoup their losses and continue to operate.

And with that, thank you Six Senses. We hope to see you again in the future.
